    • A.

      True

    Explanation
    The given statement suggests that men and women have equivalent reactions in terms of heart rate when provoked.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    2.  Both psychoanalyst Carl Jung and psychologist Elaine Hatfield believed that emotions are contagious.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Both Carl Jung and Elaine Hatfield, who are respected figures in the field of psychology, believed that emotions can be contagious. This means that individuals can "catch" or be influenced by the emotions of others. This idea aligns with the concept of emotional contagion, which suggests that emotions can spread from person to person through nonverbal cues, facial expressions, and body language. Therefore, the statement that emotions are contagious is supported by the beliefs of both Jung and Hatfield.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    4.  Conflict always requires two or more people.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Conflict does not always require two or more people. Conflict can also occur within an individual, known as internal conflict. Internal conflict refers to the psychological struggle that a person experiences within themselves, such as conflicting emotions or desires. Therefore, the statement that conflict always requires two or more people is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    5.  The agressive person insists on standing up for his or her rights while ignoring and violating the rights of others.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    An aggressive person is someone who is assertive and forceful in their behavior, often disregarding the feelings and rights of others. They prioritize their own rights and needs above others, which can lead to them ignoring and violating the rights of others. Therefore, it is true that an aggressive person insists on standing up for their own rights while disregarding and violating the rights of others.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    6.  According to uncertainty reduction theory, when we intially meet someone we are intially uncertain.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    According to uncertainty reduction theory, when we initially meet someone, we are initially uncertain. This means that when we first encounter someone, we lack information about them and their characteristics, leading to a sense of uncertainty. As we interact and gather more information about the person, this uncertainty decreases, and we are able to form more accurate impressions and predictions about them. Therefore, the statement that we are initially uncertain when meeting someone aligns with the uncertainty reduction theory.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    7.  For some people who express some anger, the risks for disease may be lower than for persons who express little anger.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Expressing anger can have both positive and negative effects on health. While excessive and uncontrolled anger can increase the risk of various health problems, such as high blood pressure, heart disease, and weakened immune system, expressing anger in a healthy and controlled manner can actually have some benefits. It can help release pent-up emotions, reduce stress, and improve overall emotional well-being. Therefore, it is possible that for some individuals who express anger in a healthy way, the risks for disease may be lower compared to those who suppress or express little anger.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    8.  The second stage of the Abuse Cycle finds tensions erupting into violence.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In the second stage of the Abuse Cycle, tensions between individuals escalate and eventually lead to violence. This stage is characterized by the build-up of anger, frustration, and resentment, which eventually explode into physical or emotional abuse. It is important to recognize the signs of this stage in order to intervene and prevent further harm.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    9.  Feelings in themselves are neither positive nor negative; what you do with them determines whether they are healthy.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    This statement suggests that feelings in and of themselves are neutral and do not have an inherent positive or negative value. It emphasizes that it is the actions and behaviors that stem from these feelings that determine whether they are healthy or not. In other words, it is not the feeling itself that is healthy or unhealthy, but rather how one chooses to respond or act upon those feelings.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    10.  During nascent friendship, we consider ourselves an enemy of the other person.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    During nascent friendship, we do not consider ourselves an enemy of the other person. Instead, during the early stages of a friendship, we tend to be more open, trusting, and positive towards the other person. This is because we are still getting to know each other and building a foundation of trust and mutual understanding. Considering oneself an enemy would be counterproductive to forming a friendship.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Susan and Juan having different views on the issue of increased taxes indicates a disagreement or conflict in their values. Value conflict occurs when individuals have differing beliefs, principles, or priorities. In this case, their differing views on increased taxes suggest that they have conflicting values regarding taxation and its impact on society.

    • A.

      Violates display rules.

    • B.

      Is at the differentiating stage of a relationship.

    Correct Answer
    D. Tries to protect himself or herself from the exchange of feelings by minding his or her own business, and avoiding relationship entaglements or involvements.
    Explanation
    According to Theodore Rubin, an emotional isolationist tries to protect himself or herself from the exchange of feelings by minding his or her own business, and avoiding relationship entanglements or involvements. This means that they intentionally distance themselves emotionally from others, preferring to keep to themselves and avoid getting too involved in relationships. They may avoid sharing their own feelings and may also avoid engaging with or empathizing with the emotions of others.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    16.  According to the text, a relationship that has no conflict is in effect

    • A.

      At stage 5, bonding.

    • B.

      Not a relationship.

    • C.

      Violating display rules.

    • D.

      A pseudo conflict.

    Correct Answer
    B. Not a relationship.
    Explanation
    According to the text, a relationship that has no conflict is not a relationship. This implies that conflict is an integral part of a relationship and its absence indicates that there is no relationship. Conflict can arise from differences in opinions, interests, or goals, and its presence is often seen as a sign of engagement and investment in a relationship. Therefore, a relationship without any conflict lacks the necessary elements to be considered a genuine relationship.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    17.  In a low-intensity conflict, the interactants

    • A.

      Want to destroy one another.

      Feel committed to winning.

    • C.

      Feel that victory is insufficient unless it is total.

    • D.

      Try to find a solution that is beneficial to each.

    Correct Answer
    D. Try to find a solution that is beneficial to each.
    Explanation
    In a low-intensity conflict, the interactants try to find a solution that is beneficial to each. This means that they are not focused on destroying one another but rather on finding a mutually agreeable outcome. They may feel committed to winning, but their ultimate goal is not to completely destroy the other party. They understand that victory alone is not enough and that a solution that benefits both parties is the ideal outcome.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    18.  A pseudo conflict occurs when

    • A.

      There is a disagreement over facts rather than values.

    • B.

      There is disagreement over values rather than facts.

    • C.

      Facts cannot be verified.

    • D.

      Someone mistakenly believes that two goals cannot be achieved simultaneously.

    • E.

      One person considers the situation a conflict, but the other does not.

    Correct Answer
    D. Someone mistakenly believes that two goals cannot be achieved simultaneously.
    Explanation
    A pseudo conflict occurs when someone mistakenly believes that two goals cannot be achieved simultaneously. In this situation, there is no actual conflict between the goals themselves, but rather a misunderstanding or misconception that they are mutually exclusive. This can lead to unnecessary tension or disagreement, even though both goals could potentially be pursued and achieved concurrently.

    Rate this question:

  • 19.

      We do not take steps to improve a relationship that is causing us trouble.

    • E.

      We may be afraid of rejection.

    Correct Answer
    B. We express our true feelings.
    Explanation
    When we behave nonassertively, we do not express our true feelings. Nonassertive behavior involves avoiding conflict and not standing up for our own needs and desires. Instead, we may suppress our true feelings and go along with what others want, even if it is not what we want. This can lead to resentment and dissatisfaction in relationships.

      The right not to assert oneself

    Correct Answer
    C. The right to make choices for others
    Explanation
    The given correct answer is "the right to make choices for others." This means that the text does not include the notion that individuals have the right to make decisions on behalf of others. The emotional bill of rights focuses on personal autonomy, self-expression, and the ability to set boundaries without feeling guilty. It emphasizes the importance of individual agency and the right to make choices for oneself, but not for others.

    • D.

      Nautical

    • A.

      Stabilized

    • B.

      Waning

    • C.

      Nascent

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Nascent
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "nascent". In the context of the question, the word "nascent" refers to the early or beginning stage of a friendship. It suggests that the relationship between the two people is just starting to develop and grow. The other options, "stabilized" and "waning", imply that the friendship is already established or declining, which contradicts the idea of considering each other as friends. Therefore, "nascent" is the most suitable answer.

      The rugged individual.

      The team player.

      A climate of trust and respect.

    • D.

      A leader with tolerance for disagreement.

    Correct Answer
    A. The rugged individual.
    Explanation
    The rugged individual is likely to result in high dissatisfaction in the workplace because they prioritize their own goals and achievements over teamwork and collaboration. This can create a competitive and individualistic environment, where employees may feel unsupported and undervalued. It can also lead to a lack of cooperation and communication among team members, hindering productivity and creating a negative work atmosphere.

    Rate this question:

  • 24. 

    24.  When it comes to displaying emotions

    • A.

      Men and women have the same physiological response, but their display of emotions and how they are verbally expressed differ.

    • B.

      Culture and race are much clearer determinants than gender.

    • C.

      Men and women are most alike in how they display anger and hostility.

    • D.

      Because women are viewed as more objective and independent, they tend to display their emotions more easily.

    Correct Answer
    A. Men and women have the same physiological response, but their display of emotions and how they are verbally expressed differ.
    Explanation
    Men and women have the same physiological response to emotions, meaning their bodies react in similar ways. However, they differ in how they display and express these emotions. This suggests that the way emotions are shown and communicated is influenced by factors other than gender, such as culture and race. Therefore, it can be concluded that gender is not the primary determinant of how emotions are displayed.

    Rate this question:

    25.  Which description of the role of conflict in a healthy relationship is accurate?

    • A.

      The ideal is to have a conflict-free relationship.

    • B.

      Handling conflicts well means that someone needs to deny his/her needs.

    • C.

      What people disagree about is more important than how they handle the conflict.

    • D.

      When handled well, conflict serves to strengthen the relationship.

    Correct Answer
    D. When handled well, conflict serves to strengthen the relationship.
    Explanation
    When conflict is handled well in a relationship, it can actually strengthen the bond between individuals. This is because conflicts provide an opportunity for individuals to express their needs, concerns, and emotions, leading to better understanding and communication. Through resolving conflicts, couples can learn to compromise, find common ground, and grow together. Conflict can also help identify areas of improvement in the relationship and promote personal and relational growth. Therefore, when handled effectively, conflict can be a positive force in a healthy relationship.

    • B.

      A value conflict

    • C.

      A content conflict

    • D.

      A pseudo conflict

    Correct Answer
    A. An ego conflict
    Explanation
    An ego conflict has the greatest potential to destroy a relationship because it involves personal pride, self-esteem, and the need to be right. In an ego conflict, individuals become defensive, stubborn, and unwilling to compromise, which can lead to resentment, anger, and a breakdown in communication. This type of conflict often escalates quickly and can cause long-lasting damage to the trust and emotional connection between people.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Obtaining a marriage license typically occurs during the commitment stage of a relationship, not the intensifying stage.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    32.  Control, one of the needs fulfilled by relationships, is conceerned with establishing and maintaining satisfactory levels of influence and power.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Control is indeed one of the needs fulfilled by relationships. It involves establishing and maintaining satisfactory levels of influence and power. In relationships, individuals seek to have some level of control over their own lives and also exert influence over others. This need for control can manifest in various ways, such as making decisions, setting boundaries, and having a say in important matters. Therefore, the statement "Control, one of the needs fulfilled by relationships, is concerned with establishing and maintaining satisfactory levels of influence and power" is true.

    Rate this question:

    33.  The theory of social penetration holds that as a relationship becomes more intimate, the depth of penetration will increase.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The theory of social penetration suggests that as a relationship becomes more intimate, the depth of penetration will increase. This means that as individuals become closer and more comfortable with each other, they will reveal more personal and private information about themselves. This theory emphasizes the idea that relationships develop over time and that trust and vulnerability are key components of intimacy. Therefore, the statement that the depth of penetration will increase as a relationship becomes more intimate is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 34. 

    34.  Affection, one of the needs fulfilled by relationships, is concerned with establishing and maintaining a feeling of mutual interest...that is, the feeling that others take an interest in us.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because affection is not one of the needs fulfilled by relationships. Affection refers to the display of fondness, love, or care towards someone, but it is not necessarily a need that relationships fulfill. Relationships can fulfill needs such as companionship, support, and understanding, but affection is not specifically mentioned as one of those needs.

    Rate this question:

  • 35. 

    35.  The grapevine is an informal conversational network in organizations.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The grapevine refers to the informal communication channels that exist within an organization. It is characterized by the transmission of information through casual conversations, gossip, and rumors rather than through formal channels. These informal networks can be highly influential in spreading information quickly throughout an organization, often faster than official communication channels. Therefore, the statement that the grapevine is an informal conversational network in organizations is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 36. 

    36.  When we equivocate, we use purposefully vague language.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Equivocation refers to the use of ambiguous language to deceive or mislead others. When we equivocate, we intentionally choose words or phrases that have multiple meanings or can be interpreted in different ways. This allows us to avoid giving a clear and direct answer, making our intentions or message unclear. Therefore, it is true that when we equivocate, we use purposefully vague language.

    Rate this question:

  • 37. 

    37.  An interpersonal relationship is

    • A.

      Dyadic.

    • B.

      Commuication of a personal nature.

    • C.

      Develops shared history.

    • D.

      All of the above.

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "all of the above" because an interpersonal relationship is dyadic, meaning it involves two people. It also involves communication of a personal nature, as it is based on personal interactions and connections. Additionally, interpersonal relationships develop shared history, as individuals build a bond and create memories together. Therefore, all three options mentioned in the question are valid explanations of an interpersonal relationship.

    Rate this question:

  • 38. 

    38.  The cost-benefit/social exchnage theory holds that we work to maintain a relationship only as long as the benefits we receive from it outweigh the costs involved in maintaining it.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The cost-benefit/social exchange theory suggests that individuals engage in relationships as long as the benefits they receive from the relationship are greater than the costs associated with maintaining it. This means that people are more likely to continue a relationship if they feel that the rewards they receive, such as love, support, or companionship, outweigh the effort, time, or sacrifices they have to make to maintain the relationship. Therefore, the statement "True" indicates that the cost-benefit/social exchange theory holds that we work to maintain a relationship only if the benefits outweigh the costs.

    39.  Loneliness results from

    • A.

      Having too many interpersonal relationships.

    • B.

      A perceived discrepancy between desired and achieved social relationships.

    • C.

      A balance between desired and achieved social relationships.

    • D.

      Inclusion.

    Correct Answer
    B. A perceived discrepancy between desired and achieved social relationships.
    Explanation
    Loneliness results from a perceived discrepancy between desired and achieved social relationships. This means that when individuals feel that their actual social connections do not meet their expectations or desires, they experience loneliness. It is not about having too many or too few interpersonal relationships, but rather about the quality and fulfillment of those relationships in relation to one's desired level of social connection. Inclusion, on the other hand, does not directly address the concept of loneliness.

    Correct Answer
    D. How central the topics you discuss are to your self concept and how much you reveal.
    Explanation
    The depth of a relationship is determined by both how central the topics you discuss are to your self-concept and how much you reveal. This means that the more personal and important the topics you discuss are to your sense of self, and the more you are willing to reveal about yourself, the deeper the relationship is likely to be.

      How much you reveal.

    • C.

      How many topics you discuss.

    • D.

      How central the topics you discuss are to your self concept and how much you reveal.

    Correct Answer
    C. How many topics you discuss.
    Explanation
    Breadth of a relationship refers to the range or variety of topics that are discussed within that relationship. It is not related to how central the topics are to one's self concept or how much one reveals about themselves. Instead, it focuses on the number of different subjects or areas that are covered in conversations and interactions between individuals in a relationship. The more topics that are discussed, the greater the breadth of the relationship.
