Question 1

CO 5. There has been a bumper crop of politicians who have been revealed to be less than upstanding citizens. John Edwards, a former senator who was in the running for the 2008 presidential nomination, and who said family values were at his core, was revealed to have had an affair with a campaign worker, at the same time his wife was battling cancer. Similarly, New York governor Eliot Spitzer, a married, moralizing crusader for laws against sexual tourism, was caught in an escort service "sting", and forced to resign. These are only two of several recent examples of politicians who have celebrity status, and flaunted the social norms of decency.

Apply the course concepts of the dark side of self-esteem and moral hypocrisy to this type of behavior. What do you conclude about people who behave in such a way? Hint: Explicitly use each concept by name and also give a one sentence definition of it before explaining how the concepts apply to these people.

Question 2

CO's 4 and 12. At the 1994 Winter Olympics, American figure skaters Tonya Harding and Nancy Kerrigan became embroiled in bitter conflict. Harding, envious of the attention the media paid to Kerrigan, arranged for an attack on her at the Olympic trials. Harding's husband and a confederate, accosted Kerrigan with a pipe, and struck her hard on the knee, causing significant injury. When the facts of the matter became public, Harding was banned for life from participating in competition figure skating.

This is a two part question:

a.  What is it about the fundamental nature and structure of the Olympics that helps explain why the conflict arose and escalated?

b.  Was the form of aggression displayed by the attackers hostile aggression or instrumental aggression? Explain your reasoning. (Note: you must make a decision between these alternatives and defend your decision.)

Question 3

CO 9. Barack Obama became a very hot political commodity in 2006 when he caught the attention and imagination of the American public by announcing his intention to run for President in 2008. He is a tall, nice looking, and a very articulate individual, which quickly made him a media darling. Some media watchers have described his impact as similar to a rock star.

Name two (2) factors of interpersonal attraction mentioned in the textbook that would explain his attractiveness to audiences.

Question 4

CO 6. What is the difference between the Prisoner's Dilemma, and the Tragedy of the Commons?

Question 6

CO 13. Militant anti-abortion groups are socially deviant groups, by definition. They use violent aggression to get their messages across to their opponents, and to attack radical fringe supporters. People have been killed or seriously injured in bombings of abortion clinics and shootings of workers and physicians. All of the public attention is in effect, a payoff for the anti-social violence. Other groups have behaved similarly in the past, and the technique seems to have been successful. What theory or concept of aggression in the textbook corresponds to the argument that anti-abortion group violence continues because it is effective in getting attention, and reflects an imitation of observed behaviors of other people?

Group of answer choices

social learning theory

hostile aggression theory

frustration-aggression hypothesis
