Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Personality differences will not influence sociability.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Personality differences can indeed influence sociability. People with outgoing and extroverted personalities tend to be more sociable and enjoy interacting with others, while introverted individuals may prefer solitude or smaller social gatherings. Additionally, personality traits such as agreeableness, openness, and conscientiousness can also impact sociability. Therefore, it is incorrect to say that personality differences do not influence sociability.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    • A.

      True

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Passion + intimacy = short-term relationship

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Passion refers to the intense physical and sexual attraction between two individuals, while intimacy refers to the emotional connection and closeness they share. When passion and intimacy are combined, it often results in a short-term relationship. This is because the intense attraction and emotional connection may not be sustainable over a long period of time, leading to the relationship ending relatively quickly. Therefore, the statement that passion + intimacy = short-term relationship is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    If we were to describe companion love as a ‘fast burn’, then passionate or romantic love would have to be described as a ‘slow burn out’.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that companion love is a fast burn, meaning it develops quickly, while passionate or romantic love is a slow burn out, implying that it fades away slowly. However, the correct answer is false because the statement does not provide any evidence or support for this comparison between companion love and passionate/romantic love. Therefore, the statement cannot be considered as an accurate description of these types of love.
