The research is, therefore, unrepresentative of interests of wider population. Secondly, the questionnaires are seen as being inflexible. When the questionnaire’s responses are finalised, the researcher can see little scope for formulating new interests or ideas and exploring them as it can be done in participant observation. Furthermore, the interviewer may collect biased data because in standardised questions he/she already imposes interests of their own and excludes questions that might be important to respondent. Thirdly, where the sociologist has interpretivist perspective, detachment may seem a big barrier to overcome.
As a result, this rule is not well enough to be implemented in our personal life as well as professional life. To eliminate the cons of the golden rule, “The Platinum Rule” is born. The Platinum Rule is all about treating people the way they like to be treated. Under this rule, personal standards should not have impact to treat others and one has to base on another’s desire to treat them. A person has to use his knowledge and skill and figures out the people around him.
This is a weakness because it means abnormality cannot be judged across eras. Another definition is failure to function adequately. Under this definition a person is considered abnormal if they are unable to cope with the demands of everyday life. They may be unable to perform the behaviours necessary for day to day living e.g. self-care, holding down a job, interacting meaningfully with others and making
1) Describe one way in which Milgrams research is unethical. Milgram did not obtain informed consent from his participants and deceived them. Milgrams participants did not know the true purpose of the experiment as they thought the study was investigating punishment on learning rather than obedience. They therefore could not give informed consent. This is a limitation because it raises ethical concerns and would not be acceptable under the current BPS (British Psychological Society) guidelines for conducting research.
The fear of losing agency is not an adequate reason to reject epiphenomenalism. Rather, the fact that so much of how humans behave seems to be attributed to their beliefs or desires, the emergence of psychology in explaining behaviour, and the lack of universal laws of causation, all contribute to undermine the strength of epiphenomenalism as a theory to explain the mind-body relationship. Beliefs and desires seem to be the reason why humans act in a certain way in certain situations. This type of behaviour is regarded as psychological and relates to an individual’s mind and behaviour. Psychologists, try to study an individual’s mind to determine the causes of their behaviour’s.
Both have an impact on the quality of sex research. Just as with Biases and Stereotypes, both are based on one’s opinion of another person. One cannot necessarily generalize the experience of oneself to others, thus resulting in inaccuracy. Clinical, Observational, and Experimental approaches are all used to study human sexuality. Clinical research is used to study human sexuality
I do not feel superior to the individual who is conversing in “broken” English because I cannot judge someone on the basis of how they talk in the English language. They probably are proficient in another language that is foreign to me, and if I were to learn that language and speak it in a “broken” manner, I would not appreciate it if people looked down upon me because of that. There are stereotypes and misconceptions concerning people who speak in “broken” English and how they are perceived to be uneducated and stupid, but this is very ignorant. Another aspect that has shaped my views on people who speak “broken” English is the fact that my parents speak in “broken” English. However, this has not limited their possibilities in life, as my parents are very successful today.
The problem with standardized testing is that it does not agree well with education. Even Alfred Binet, originator of the intelligence test said himself, “It should not be used to prop up a theory of intelligence” and that it was “nothing more than a practical device” (“Intelligence Testing”) This includes motivation, teaching, and evaluation. The most obvious forms of motivation, such as bribes and threats, are ultimately more harmful than helpful. Some schools use diplomas as both a way of bribing and of threatening students to do well on standardized tests. Not only is this unfair, but it is destructive.
The danger with stereotypes is that we often generalize and combine characteristics of an individual to make conclusions about groups of people. This commonly occurs due to conclusions made without obtaining all the information necessary to make a fair judgment about people or situations. People with disabilities can’t lead a full and productive life, are part of a one-dimensional group, and are considered “special.” People with disabilities can’t lead a full and productive life. Disability does not mean dependence. They are capable of fully participating in community life without having to depend on someone without a disability.
Is it because of an assumption that all people think differently or opposite of who they are toward others? For example, on one question it reads “Tends to find fault with others.” I wrote a 2 because I disagreed a little. The score sheet required me to reverse this to 4, meaning that I do agree that I blame others for my faults a little. This goes to show that this test takes into consideration that people do not evaluate themselves honestly, but does not consider those who do. In conclusion,
