Relationship Psychology - Qp6 - Quiz


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    “The female brain is predominately hard-wired for sympathy. The male brain is predominately hard-wired for understanding and building systems.”Baron-Cohen (2004: 1)

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because it oversimplifies the differences between male and female brains. While research has shown that there are some structural and functional differences between male and female brains, it is incorrect to say that the female brain is predominantly hard-wired for sympathy and the male brain is predominantly hard-wired for understanding and building systems. These characteristics can vary greatly among individuals and are influenced by a combination of biological, social, and cultural factors.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Sympathy comes from the natural desire to want to care about other people.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Sympathy does not necessarily come from a natural desire to care about other people. It can be influenced by various factors such as personal experiences, cultural upbringing, and individual personality traits. Some people may naturally have a greater inclination towards sympathy, while others may need to consciously cultivate it. Therefore, it is not accurate to say that sympathy always stems from a natural desire to care about others.

  • 3. 

    The male preference for understanding and building systems is what Baron-Cohen refers to as ‘systemising’.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because Baron-Cohen refers to the male preference for understanding and building systems as "systemising." This suggests that males tend to have a natural inclination towards analyzing and constructing systems, which could explain their tendency to excel in fields such as engineering, technology, and mathematics.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    On average a female will tend to systemise to a greater degree compared with the average male.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The given statement suggests that, on average, females tend to systemize more than males. However, the correct answer is False. This means that the statement is not accurate, and there is no evidence to support the claim that females, on average, systemize to a greater degree than males. It is important to note that individuals can vary greatly in their cognitive abilities and preferences, and generalizations should not be made based on gender alone.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Form a gender perspective males tend to be more involved in groups than females, preferring group activities over more close friendships.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    This statement suggests that, from a gender perspective, males are more likely to engage in group activities and prioritize them over forming close friendships, while females may have a preference for closer one-on-one relationships. This aligns with common stereotypes and societal expectations regarding gender roles and social behavior.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Men value power, competition and dominance, while women want intimacy and have a supportive relationship.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    This statement suggests a generalization about the preferences and values of men and women. It implies that men tend to prioritize power, competition, and dominance, while women prioritize intimacy and seek supportive relationships. While it is important to recognize that individual preferences may vary greatly, this statement reflects commonly observed societal gender norms and expectations.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Reasons why women have petitioned for divorce due to ‘unreasonable behaviour’ includes: (Select four)

    • A.

      Empathy

    • B.

      Personality problems

    • C.

      Drinking

    • D.

      Family

    • E.

      Money management

    • F.

      Authority

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. Personality problems
    C. Drinking
    E. Money management
    F. Authority
    Explanation
    Women may petition for divorce due to personality problems if their spouse's behavior is consistently difficult, causing emotional distress and conflict within the marriage. Drinking can be a reason for divorce if it leads to substance abuse, addiction, or irresponsible behavior that negatively impacts the relationship. Money management issues can create significant stress and strain on a marriage, leading to divorce if not resolved. Authority can be a reason for divorce if one partner consistently exhibits controlling or abusive behavior, leading to a toxic and unhealthy relationship.

  • 8. 

    In relationships it’s been found that men provide much more support than women do, alongside being more affectionate, appreciative and encouraging.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement in the question is not accurate. Research on relationships has shown that both men and women provide support, affection, appreciation, and encouragement in equal measures. It is important to avoid generalizations and stereotypes when discussing gender roles in relationships.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    According to the Office for National Statistics (ONS) the median duration of marriage in 2012 (the most up to date figures available at the time of writing: 2014) was eleven and a half years.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    According to the Office for National Statistics (ONS), the median duration of marriage in 2012 was eleven and a half years. This means that half of the marriages lasted for less than eleven and a half years, while the other half lasted for more. Therefore, the statement "True" is correct.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Divorce is most likely to occur between the ______  year of marriage.

    • A.

      4th and 6th

    • B.

      4th and 7th

    • C.

      4th and 8th

    • D.

      4th and 9th

    Correct Answer
    C. 4th and 8th
    Explanation
    Divorce is most likely to occur between the 4th and 8th year of marriage. This is because the initial excitement and honeymoon phase of a relationship may start to fade after a few years, leading to conflicts and challenges. Couples may also face additional stressors such as financial issues, raising children, or career pressures during this time. These factors can put strain on the relationship and increase the likelihood of divorce.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    The process and stages of divorce are largely personal and will of course be similar.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that the process and stages of divorce are largely personal and similar. However, this is not true as the process and stages of divorce can vary greatly depending on various factors such as jurisdiction, legal requirements, and individual circumstances. Each divorce case is unique and may involve different legal procedures, negotiations, and emotional experiences. Therefore, it is incorrect to assume that the process and stages of divorce are largely personal and similar.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    An important predictor of relationship happiness is the differences.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that differences are an important predictor of relationship happiness, but the correct answer is false. This means that differences alone are not necessarily a determining factor in relationship happiness. Other factors such as communication, trust, and compatibility may play a more significant role in determining the overall happiness of a relationship.
