Chapter 14: Social Psychology In chapter 14, the topic of attitudes and actions was talked about and how attitudes affect actions and how actions affect attitudes, but in my perspective I believe that attitudes affect actions. Meaning that the way you act will affect your actions and how others treat you. When you have a positive attitude then you will be rewarded with positive actions, but with negative attitudes only negative actions will result. For example, in the book there is a picture of a team playing volleyball and I think that depending on the attitude of the person playing in a team will result in the victory of a game. In order to play in a team your attitude need to be cooperative because having a negative attitude will make it harder for the team to work with you. More over I feel that it is more correct to state that attitudes affect actions because although certain actions do affect attitudes is what you originally offer or “bring to the table” that will result in what outcome you will have. I think that this behavior occurs because people have the wrong mentally of how to act in certain situations. The attitude you carry around will predict the outcome of your actions along the way. For example, some people do not wake up with the right attitude and since they have a sour attitude they whole day goes bad because they have the wrong attitude everything goes wrong. By changing an attitude the actions or result of what you are doing can go the opposite…
you will try to act a little kinder than is necessary—the world really would be a better
place. This theme is seen and shown a lot through the conflicts the characters go through,
the characters’ actions, and the positive changes as they develop as dynamic characters.
The characters in this novel face many difficult situations, however the result
turns into something positive. For example, Auggie was having quite a hard time on
whether he should go to school or not. “‘We can’t just keep protecting him,’ Mom
whispered.’ ‘We can’t just pre…

The Positive Effects of Dreaming
Why do individuals dream? Are there any benefits to dreaming? The average person spends approximately six years of his or her life dreaming. “Over a seventy-year life span, you’ll devote at least fifty thousand hours to dreaming” (Segell 42). The earliest documented research about dreams came from the works of the Egyptians, followed by the Greeks in the 8th B.C. But studies have shown that dreams do in fact have a positive effect on people’s everyday lives. Only…
Positive Psychology has discovered that there are 7 Habits of Happy People. Those 7 habits are Social Life/ Relationships, Spirituality/Caring, Exercise/Nutrition, “Flow”, Meaning or Purpose, Stress/Coping skills, and Love/Passion. Those 7 principles are what make up our happy life, without them we wouldn’t be our happy selves. Each of those habits affect our life in positive but different ways.
Social life and Relationship have one of the biggest impact on our lives,…
An interesting claim made in the movie Happy is the concept that people who experience Flow are happier. Flow can be described as a “synergy of different aspects of consciousness” according to Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, a Professor of Psychology at Claremont Graduate University. This synergy can often cause the feeling of being “lost in the moment” where the world around you seems absent due to the enjoyment of this activity. Flow can help people to feel in control and allow them to forget…
If you ask my mom, I definitely get my attitude from my dad and I am sure a lot of parents say this and they could be right. An attitude is something that may be learned, and it is also something that could be due to circumstances. According to "About Education" (2015), "Psychologists define attitudes as a learned tendency to evaluate things in a certain way. This can include evaluations of people, issues, objects or events. Such evaluations are often positive or negative, but they can also be uncertain…
