They also rated the onlooker more highly if given positive feedback about their performance. This study shows that positive reinforcement, such as praise, will increase the likelihood of an individual rating that person more than they would if they had received no positive feedback. This supports the rewards/need satisfaction theory as it shows that receiving a reward
He also says how people overestimate the extent of money and what it can do for them. Relationships are another important thing that makes people happy.

The independent group design could have meant, by chance, the group who were told to expect no negative withdraws, were naturally more determined people, thus increasing their chance of giving up anyway. Without a control group we cannot see how many people would have relapsed with no expectations being induced. Furthermore, self report methods were used when reporting withdrawal symptoms, which are subjective and could be influenced by demand characteristics, with people guessing the aim of the study and trying to give answers to help the experimenter. Another cognitive explanation is the self medicated model, which descried relapse as a result of the individual believing without their addiction they cannot cope, focus on a task or feel bored without their addiction to occupy them. For example a smoker may feel too stressed to function properly at work, therefore relapse and continual smoking occurred to reduce these negative
These distances are called proxemics. When the person feeling interacted with experiences physical and psychological discomfort this is now called threat threshold. The Expectancy Violations Theory also explains communication as the exchange of information in a logical content that can be used to disrupt the anticipation of another. For example, you may expect a person to act in a cruel manner but then the person ends up turning out to be the sweetest person you’ve ever met. The perception of exchanging can be accepted either negatively or positively, which is called violation valence.
The client also learns what the consequences of these thoughts are/could be. This can be done by the therapist asking them to focus on a time when they did manage to get work in before a deadline and how good they felt. The second stage of CBT requires the therapist to challenge any negative beliefs the client may have by pointing out positives that contradict them. This energizes them to look at the situation in a more positive way than they were before, leading to a new behaviour being portrayed due to their change in thought processes. Cognitive behavioural therapy has been shown to positively affect many disorders, including phobias and depression.
He states that ethnic diversity is a stepping-stone for varying perspectives and even more skillsets to a particular population. As a result of this collection of ranging views and skillsets, society is perceived to unify and bond over these ideals rather than segregate from one another. “Diversity might actually reduce both in-group and out-group solidarity….both bonding and bridging together of social capital” (Putnam, 2007). In other words, a more self-less, unified and society is formed due to tolerance and acceptance of others ideals, preferences and values amongst co-ethnics and non co-ethnics. This idea plays well in hand with the principle that cultures and ethnic identities are formed with shared values and preferences.
