    Which of the following describes the timing of remarriage in the US?

    • A.

      Women tend to remarry sooner than men

    • B.

      Men tend to remarry sooner than women

    Correct Answer
    B. Men tend to remarry sooner than women
    Explanation
    Men tend to remarry sooner than women in the US. This could be due to various factors such as social norms, cultural expectations, and gender roles. It is possible that men may feel more societal pressure to remarry and find a new partner sooner after a divorce or death of a spouse. Additionally, men may have a larger pool of potential partners available, as women tend to live longer than men on average. These factors may contribute to the trend of men remarrying sooner than women in the US.

However, research has shown that having children can actually add stress and strain to a marriage, and it is not a guaranteed solution to marital dissatisfaction.

    In general, why are 40-yr olds better problem-solvers than 20-yr olds?

    • A.

      They have more experience

    • B.

      They have better methods to improve their memory

This experience enables them to draw from past encounters and apply relevant knowledge to find effective solutions. Additionally, older individuals may have encountered similar problems before, giving them an advantage in identifying patterns and applying successful strategies. Overall, the accumulated experience of 40-year olds equips them with valuable insights and skills that contribute to their enhanced problem-solving abilities.

    • A.

      Major life events; conflict

    • B.

      Events in early adulthood; events in late adulthood

    • C.

      Daily hassle; major life events

    Correct Answer
    C. Daily hassle; major life events
    Explanation
    Daily hassles refer to the small, everyday stressors that individuals experience, such as traffic, work deadlines, or financial worries. These daily hassles can accumulate over time and contribute to chronic stress. On the other hand, major life events are significant occurrences that can also cause stress, such as getting married, losing a job, or the death of a loved one. While both daily hassles and major life events can be stressful, daily hassles are more likely to have a continuous impact on an individual's well-being due to their regular occurrence.

    If men and women engaged in exactly the same health related behaviors, experienced the same amounts of stress, reacted in the same ways, and had the same work habits and attitudes, which of the following would be expected?

    • A.

      Men and women have the same life expectancies

    • B.

      Women would have longer life expectancies

    • C.

      Men would have longer life expectancies

    Correct Answer
    B. Women would have longer life expectancies
    Explanation
    If men and women engaged in exactly the same health related behaviors, experienced the same amounts of stress, reacted in the same ways, and had the same work habits and attitudes, it would be expected that women would have longer life expectancies. This is because women generally have biological advantages such as lower risk of heart disease and higher immune system function. Additionally, women tend to seek medical care more often and have healthier lifestyle habits. Therefore, in a scenario where all other factors are equal, women would be expected to live longer than men.

      Accidents

Both mental stimulation and weight lifting are proactive measures that can be taken to maintain and improve overall health.

    Erikson believed that elderly adults use their impending death as a motivation to look back and evaluate their life.  this form of retrospection is what many theorists call:

    • A.

      Life review

    • B.

      Identity resolution

    • C.

      Integrity formation

    Correct Answer
    A. Life review
    Explanation
    Erikson's theory suggests that as elderly adults approach the end of their lives, they engage in a process of reflecting on and evaluating their life experiences. This process, known as a "life review," allows individuals to gain a sense of meaning and purpose in their lives by examining their accomplishments, regrets, and relationships. It provides an opportunity for personal growth and the integration of past experiences into a coherent narrative. This process helps individuals achieve a sense of closure and acceptance as they prepare for their impending death.

    Which of the following statements is supported by research?

    • A.

      The majority of Western men experience a mid-life crisis

    • B.

      Most life-crises are related to changes in age, although such crises do not occur predominantly in middle age

    • C.

      Most life-crises are related to life-events rather than age

    Correct Answer
    C. Most life-crises are related to life-events rather than age
    Explanation
    Research supports the statement that most life-crises are related to life-events rather than age. This implies that life-crises can occur at any stage of life and are not limited to a specific age group, such as middle age. The research suggests that various life-events, such as career changes, relationship issues, or personal losses, can trigger a life-crisis regardless of a person's age. This finding emphasizes the importance of considering individual experiences and circumstances when understanding and addressing life-crises.
