Behavioural Therapy - Qp2 - Quiz

Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    A motivated person will engage in an activity more vigorously and more efficiently than an unmotivated one.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Motivation plays a crucial role in determining a person's level of engagement and efficiency in an activity. When someone is motivated, they are driven by a strong desire to achieve their goals and are willing to put in the necessary effort and energy. This heightened level of motivation leads to increased enthusiasm, focus, and perseverance, ultimately resulting in a more vigorous and efficient approach towards the activity. On the other hand, an unmotivated person lacks the drive and enthusiasm, which can lead to a lackluster performance and reduced efficiency. Therefore, it can be concluded that a motivated person will indeed engage in an activity more vigorously and efficiently than an unmotivated one.

    An instinct is defined as an innate biological force that predisposes the individual to act in a certain way.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    An instinct is indeed defined as an innate biological force that predisposes an individual to act in a certain way. This means that certain behaviors or actions are naturally programmed into an organism's DNA, allowing them to respond to certain stimuli without needing to learn or be taught how to do so. These instinctual behaviors are often crucial for survival and can be observed in various species across the animal kingdom. Therefore, the statement "An instinct is defined as an innate biological force that predisposes the individual to act in a certain way" is true.

    To say that a man fought because he had, an aggressive instinct does not offer much more than a description of his behaviour. It does explain his behaviour.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement suggests that saying a man fought because he had an aggressive instinct only describes his behavior, it does not provide an explanation for it. In other words, it implies that stating the presence of an aggressive instinct does not provide a deeper understanding of why the man fought. Therefore, the correct answer is false, as it challenges the idea that the aggressive instinct alone can fully explain the man's behavior.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

    Explanation
    A drive is not a hypothetical construct, but rather a psychological construct. It is not directly observable but is inferred from behavior.

    The need to avoid tissue damage is essential to the survival of any individual.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Tissue damage can lead to various complications and impair the functioning of organs and systems in the body. It can result in pain, inflammation, infection, and even loss of function. Therefore, avoiding tissue damage is crucial for the overall well-being and survival of an individual.

  • 7. 

    According to drive reduction theory, a person who has his biological needs satisfied should be in a quiescent state.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    According to drive reduction theory, when a person's biological needs are satisfied, they should be in a quiescent state. This means that when a person's basic physiological needs like hunger, thirst, and sleep are met, they should experience a state of calmness or tranquility. This is because drive reduction theory suggests that the satisfaction of these biological needs reduces the internal drive or motivation to seek out those needs, leading to a state of rest or relaxation. Therefore, it is true that a person who has his biological needs satisfied should be in a quiescent state according to drive reduction theory.
