Read the below case and answer the questions that follow: 
Following the work of Thurstone, American psychologist Howard Gardner built off the idea that there are multiple forms of intelligence. He proposed that there is no single intelligence, but rather distinct, independent multiple intelligences exist, each representing unique skills and talents relevant to a certain category. Gardner (1983) initially proposed seven multiple intelligences: linguistic, logical-mathematical, spatial, musical, bodily-kinesthetic, interpersonal, and intrapersonal, and he has since added naturalist intelligence. Gardner holds that most activities (such as dancing) will involve a combination of these multiple intelligences (such as spatial and bodilykinesthetic intelligences). He also suggests that these multiple intelligences can help us understand concepts beyond intelligence, such as creativity and leadership.
Q.49: Whom did American psychologist Howard Gardner follow?

Trait Approaches

These theories are mainly concerned with the description or characterisation of basic components of personality. They try to discover the ‘building blocks’ of personality. Human beings display a wide range of variations in psychological attributes, yet it is possible to club them into smaller number of personality traits. Trait approach is very similar to our common experience in everyday life. For example, when we come to know that a person is sociable, we assume that s/he will not only be cooperative, friendly and helping, but also engage in behaviours that involve other social components. Thus, trait approach attempts to identify primary characteristics of people. A trait is considered as a relatively enduring attribute or quality on which one individual differs from another. They include a range of possible behaviours that are activated according to the demands of the situation. To summarise, (A) Traits are relatively stable over time, (B) they are generally consistent across situations, and (C) their strengths and combinations vary across individuals leading to individual differences in personality.
Q.53: Who amongst these psychologists have not given a theory on Trait Approach?
(a) Gordon Allport
(b) H. J. Eysenck
(c) Carl Jung

The trait approach attempts to identify primary characteristics of people.


Read the passage and answer the questions that follow by choosing the correct option:
Hans Selye, a Vienna-born scientist, working in the 20th century, was the first person to describe GAS. Selye found that rats displayed a similar set of physical responses to several different stressors. The latter included cold temperatures, excessive physical exertions, and injection with toxins. The scientist explained GAS as the body’s way of adapting to a perceived threat to better equip it to survive. A paper on Selye’s GAS theory was published in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology in 1946. The three stages of GAS are:
(A)  Alarm reaction
(B)  Resistance
(C) Exhaustion
When does GAS occur? Selye’s study was limited to physical stressors, such as cold temperatures and physical overexertion. However, it is now understood that life events that induce psychological stress cause the same physical reactions, as were seen in Selye’s study. The sort of life events that can cause a person to experience stress and GAS include (relationship breakdowns, losing a job, medical problems and money troubles) In theory, the fact that these situations can cause GAS may be beneficial. The alarm reaction gives people a burst of energy and concentration that could help them to problem-solve. For most people, however, the physical response their body goes through when they are under stress is not helpful. Unlike threats people may have faced in the Stone Age, a person nowadays is unlikely to be able to resolve a stressful situation of modernday life with a burst of energy. Long-term stress can have a negative impact on a person physically and on their immune system. A 2008 paper noted that chronic stress could lead to increase the risk of viral infection, stomach ulcers, depression and heart disease.
Q.57: Hans Seyle was born in
(a) Vienna
(b) Australia
(c) New York
(d) Pennsylvania

Correct Answer is Option (a)
He was born on January 26, 1907.

(a) The Journal of Nature communications
(b) The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology
(c) The Journal of Astronomy
(d) None of the above

Correct Answer is Option (b)


Q.59: The events that can cause an individual to experience GAS are 
(a) relationship breakdowns 
(b) losing a job 
(c) medical problems 
(d) All of the above

Correct Answer is Option (a)
All these events trigger the individual to experience GAS.


Q.60: According to Selye’s GAS model, we respond to stress with alarm, then with resistance and, finally, with ________. 
(a) Adjustment 
(b) Eustress 
(c) Commitment 
(d) Exhaustion

Correct Answer is Option (d)
Continued exposure to the same stressor or additional stressors drains the body of its resources and leads to the third stage of exhaustion.
