  • What type of atmosphere is created by imagery in the opening paragraph("uncertain glow," "deep shadows")?
    What type of atmosphere is created by imagery in the opening paragraph("uncertain glow," "deep shadows")?
    Surreptitious. While surreptitious means secret, it has the additional feeling of "slippery" or "covered up." Amid the Jewish Passover feast of Seder, a grown-up will surreptitiously put a bit of matzoh some place in the house for the youngsters to chase for later in the dinner. You'll see surreptitious connected for the most part to activities, as opposed to things or thoughts. Most perusers of fiction nowadays, in Israel and somewhere else, underestimate the reasonability of the Jewish language as a vehicle of current literary articulation. Hebrew books appear to get converted into English nearly as quick as they are created in the first; writers like Yaakov Shabtai, Aharon Appelfeld, Amos Oz, and A.B. Yehoshua have come to be viewed as essential figures on the global literary scene of the 70's and 80's; and the proof of their prose—and additionally that of still untranslated writers like Amalia Kahana-Carmon and Yitzhak Ben-Ner—plainly proposes that for all intents and purposes every single wanted subtlety of thought and feeling, basically all the moment and impossible to miss points of interest of outside reality, can be gotten in the supple lattices of the Jewish language.

  • Which environmental factors are primarily responsible for the change in human behavior?
    Which environmental factors are primarily responsible for the change in human behavior?
    Behaviourism. this school of psychology is based on the premise that scientific psychology should study only observable behaviour. from this premise, the behaviourists eventually come to see their mission as to relate observable behaviour to observable events in the environment.marking / feedback: (2.5/4)yes, behaviourism woudl be most likely to agree with this statement. however, you did not explain sufficiently why behaviourists would place such emphasis on environmental factors. behaviourists maintain that behaviour is governed primarily by the environment. watson argued that a person is made, not born, therefore lending credence to environment or experience (nurture) vs. genetic inheritance (nature) as the primary basis for the science of behaviour. this in turn evolved into an attempt to relate overt behaviours, or responses, to observable events in the environment, or stimuli.

  • Which Brantian opposed to Mr. Harvy?
    Which Brantian opposed to Mr. Harvy?
    Meek-brantain is meek compared to the more up-front and audacious mr. harvy, who pressed an ardent, lingering kiss upon nathalies lips (2122), confidently responds to her angry questions (3640), and with an insolent smile (7374) rejects her kiss (7879). brantain, on the other hand, is less confident in expressing his desire for nathalie. in the second paragraph, he is relieved by and thankful for the dark shadows because they allow him to develop the courage to keep his eyes fastened as ardently as he liked upon the girl (56). while the word ardent is used to describe mr. harvys kiss, it merely describes mr. brantains stare, further contrasting their personalities. braintain is also hesitant in confessing his feelings for nathalie, unlike the more up-front mr. harvy: she was confidently waiting for him [brantain] to declare himself (14). brantain also unquestionably believes and accepts nathalies

  • What does Nathalie's "delicious frankness" of manner imply?  
    What does Nathalie's "delicious frankness" of manner imply?  
    She is more wily than frank-the adjective delicious is not usually paired with the noun frankness, and this pairing makes the reader question the authenticity of nathalies frankness. the adjective delicious conjures up an image of nathalie licking her lips, eagerly anticipating approaching brantain with such a frank manner. the adjective delicious depicts nathalie as more wily (cunning, strategic) than frank. she clearly has some ulterior motive in approaching brantain; perhaps it has to do with her desire to marry him for his wealth (16).

    Joan: internal-stable attribution. explains mays success in being named class valedictorian by ascribing it to her intelligence, which she believes is inherited or passed on from parent to child.joans bias is self-serving in attributing mays success to personal factors, such as intelligence.catherine: internal-unstable attribution. catherine ascribes mays success to her efforts in studying all the time. also, external-stable attribution is in effect here by ascribing mays success to the lack of bright students at the school.catherines bias is self-serving in explaining mays success. this reverses the actor-observer differences to some degree, according to weiten and mccann (2007). catherine likes to explain mays success by her good fortune of not having to compete with the bright students, who are attending another school.

    Cannon-bard theory: stimulus (loss in stock market) => subcortical brain activity => both autonomic arousal (sick to stomach) and conscious feelings (depression, anxiety) schachters two factor: stimulus (loss in stock market) => autonomic arousal (sick to stomach) => appraisal of situation (jeopardizing family welfare) => conscious feeling (depression and anxiety)marking / feedback: (1/2)yes, schachters two-factor theory applies here. steven attributes his sick to the stomach feelings to his risky investments. he labels his visceral arousal as anxiety and depression. however, the cannon-bard theory cannot be applied, because it clerly assumes that the motion is caused by the subcortical brain activity, not (as indicated in the question) by cognition (stevens thought that he has jeopardized his familys welfare).

    James-lange theory: stimulus (near accident) => autonomic arousal (heart beat rapidly, face turned flush, stomach tied itself into knots) => conscious feelings (angry and frustration) (harry felt angry because his heart beat rapidly, his face turned flush, and his stomach tied) cannon-bard theory: stimulus (near accident) => subcortical brain activity => both autonomic arousal (heart beat rapidly, face turned flush, stomach tied itself into knots) and conscious feelings (angry, frustration) (the incident made harry angry and frustrated; and also his heart beat, his face flush...) schachters two factor theory: stimulus (near accident) => autonomic arousal => appraisal of the situation => conscious feelings (angry, frustration) evolutionary theory: the emotions (angry, frustration) come first (before any thought or appraisal of the situation). his immediate reactions (swerving, hitting the brake) are innate reactions responding to the stimuli (the danger situation) in order to survive (not a result of any complex thought).
