www.psy355edu.com One common problem of motivation is procrastination, or putting offuntil the very last moment doing what is necessary to attain one’sgoals, which is discussed briefly in chapters seven and 10 of thecourse text. According to Clayton Taylor-Ladd (1996-2007), the twobasic types of procrastinators are: • The relaxed type places littleimportance on the goal, so leaves it to be done until there is nothingbetter to do in an effort to not get stressed over the "insignificant,"but rather doing what brings more enjoyment to him/her. Ironically,the great dichotomy in life eventually wins out and the stress therelaxed type is trying to avoid materializes in spades. • The tense-afraid type feels, overwhelmed bypressures, “unrealistic about time, uncertain about goals, dissatisfiedwith accomplishments, indecisive, blaming others or circumstances forhis/her failures, lacking in self-confidence and, sometimes isperfectionistic,” (¶ 2) Choose one of the two types of procrastinator above and describewhat you might do to help your client overcome the procrastination, andreinforce the motivation towards his or her goal. ………………………………………………………………………………..

www.psy355edu.com We know that one’s emotions affect one’s facial muscles to produce theexpressions we understand as happiness, sadness, anger, fear,frustration, etc. Is it also true, though that, aside from regulatingintensity of an existing emotion, the muscles in one’s face can createor change one’s emotions? Before answering this DQ, please conduct all four steps of thefollowing experiment. There are no right or wrong answers, so justrelax, don’t over think what you are doing, and enjoy the experience! You will need a long pencil, pen, stiff straw, or chopstick, and apiece of paper on which to write. You will be asked to complete anaction, and then to record a couple of small bits of information. Whenyou record the information, write your answers with your non-dominanthand. In other words, if you are right handed, write your answersusing your left hand; if you are left-handed, write your answers usingyour right hand. (Writing with one’s non-dominant hand accesses theintuitive, emotional side of one’s brain.) To earn full credit forthis DQ, you must conduct the experiments yourself, but feel free tohave a friend or family member also conduct this experiment, and thencompare your answers. 1. Place the end of the pencil, pen, straw or chopstick between yourlips, then tighten your lower lip so the pencil or stick flips upwardslightly. Mentally count to five, and then (with the pencil still inplace), write with your non-dominant hand five to ten words to describe“weather.”


2. Raise your eyebrows as high as you can, mentally count to five, andwhile your eyebrows are raised, write with your non-dominant hand fiveto ten words that describe “weather.” 3. “Knit” your brow (i.e., bring your eyebrows together as tightly aspossible), count to five, then with your brow still knit, write withyour non-dominant hand five to ten words that describe “weather.” 4. Gently hold the center of the pen, pencil, straw, or chopstickhorizontally (side to side) as far back in the mouth as comfortablypossible (each end of the pencil or pen should be outside of themouth), count to five, then with the pencil still in place, write withyour non-dominant hand five to ten words to describe “weather.” To complete this DQ, please answer the following questions in thisthread: What are the descriptions you wrote in each phase of theexperiment? What feelings or emotions, if any, did you experience ineach phase? What insights did you gain from looking at your results ofthe experiment? So that your perceptions are not biased prior conducting theexperiments, I ask that you not read any of your classmates’ responsesto this DQ before completing your experiments. ………………………………………………………………………………..

www.psy355edu.com As you read last week, stress is not only a great motivator, on along-term or redundant basis, it is also responsible for a plethora ofphysical illnesses ranging from the common cold, to allergic reactions,to heart disease and even cancer. It is also a major contributor tomany psychological disorders including depression, anxiety, cognitivedisruption and learning disorders. Usually, stress motivates one toadopt various coping mechanisms, including understanding the cause ofthe stress, realigning one’s beliefs about the stressors, changingone’s lifestyle to eliminate the stress, and learning how to manage thephysical symptoms of the stress. Once in a while, however, you will meet people whose lives are beingcontrolled by stress, but who will resist making any of the changesnecessary to take the control back and learn how to effectively copewith, or eliminate the sources of, their stress. When this happens(assuming the person is mentally and physically capable of “coping”) itoften is helpful to remember that a person will continue a behavior aslong as it continues to work for him or her. We see this in people whocontinue to return to dangerous or exploitive relationships; people whocontinue addiction behavior even though their health is being ruined,their finances are in shambles, or they are facing significant legalconsequences; or people who procrastinate to the point of jeopardizingtheir health, careers or credit ratings, just to name a few examples. Please post your response to the following discussion question by clicking on Reply:


Think of an acquaintance in your own personal or professionalexperience (i.e., not yourself, and preferably not anyone in yourimmediate family) who is more motivated to continue his or herstressful behavior, than to learn how to cope with the stress (meet thedemands of life head-on) and take back control of his or her life. Howis the stress working for this person, and how would you use thisknowledge to motivate him or her towards a more manageable, stress-freelife? ………………………………………………………………………………..

www.psy355edu.com Part 1 1 - When you smile in greeting a friend, it is because you


are happy to see him/her, or is it simply a greeting without any feeling? 2 - What governs your facial expressions? Is it your felt emotions, your social motives, the person you are with, or display rules in general? According to the appraisal tendency hypothesis, emotions can influence a person's judgments and decisions. Has this ever happened to you? Have you made judgments, decisions, or commitments during an intense emotion that you would not have made in the absence of the emotion? When is it best to make a judgment or decision: in the presence or absence of an emotional feeling? Why? Part 2 According to the behavioral ecology hypothesis, facial expressions are used to influence other individuals to help satisfy our social motives. Has anyone you know ever manipulated their facial expressions in order to influence another individual, such as a. pouted to get what you wanted? b. cried in order to reduce your punishment (e.g., get out of a speeding ticket)? c. smiled at someone to reduce his/her seeming initial aggressive tendencies? d. smiled at a friend to reinforce him/her for spending time with you? e. look angry to influence others to decide things your way? Part 3 1 - What is the relationship between facial expressions and emotion? 2 - Do you think there is a universal nature of facial expressions? Why or why not? Part 4 Do you find yourself obeying the principle of least effort or the law of less work? For example, do you drive instead of walk, take the elevator instead of stairs, eat fast-food rather than cook, or take an easy elective course rather than a challenging one? Why do you think this is so?
