61 Short Answer/Essay Questions

Try these AFTER you have thoroughly studied the chapter.  You should not have to look back at the text to answer them (only to check your answer!).  Remember, the point is NOT to memorize parts of the textbook but rather to understand the material and describe it in your OWN WORDS.

If you are going to write more than a couple of paragraphs, think about the structure of your answer.

  1. What is the two-factor theory of emotion? Describe some of the research that has been put forward in support of it.
  2. Identify three nonverbal cues and give an example of how each can be used to communicate emotion.
  3. Describe the sexual response cycle.
  4. How does the human body respond to stress?
