66 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. Describe Freud’s stages of psychosexual development.
  2. Describe the five factors in the five-factor model of personality.
  3. What is a projective measure of personality? Describe one such measure.
  4. How can the study of twins shed light on the influence of nature and nurture on personality?
