Please answer each in your own words:

  • Consider the difference between projective and objective tests for measuring personality traits, in particular the advantages and disadvantages of each. What is your opinion of these different approaches? Which do you think is preferable, and why?
  • Personality traits are not always as stable across time or
    across situations as we assume. Give your own original example that illustrates
    this fact. (This can be a real example from your own life, or it can be
    something hypothetical that you make up.)
  • Give your own original example (not one from the video) of how
    cognitive dissonance might trigger a change in attitudes.
  • Consider the compliance tactics discussed in the video (foot
    in the door, reciprocity and so on). Given that these can be used to manipulate
    or even harm us, what tactics would you suggest for resisting them?
