Week 3:  Theory of genotype environment effect o Based on our genotype, we create our own environments o Passive, evocative and active  Passive genotype Environment effects  Parents provide both genes and environment for their children.  Occurs in biological families  Passive genotype environment effects  Adoption studies  One set of parents provided the adolescents genes, but a different set of parents provided the environment. o When adolescents are more similar to their biological parents, the genes play a strong role. Compared to when the adolescents are more similar to their adoptive parents, the environment plays a stronger role.  Evocative genotype environment effects  Crucial addition of the assumption that charactersitics such as reading ability, athletic ability and sociability are at least partly based on genetics.  Active genotype environment effects  When people seek out environments that correspond t their genotypic characteristics  People are drawn to environments that match their inherited abilities. o Passive genotypes are more for adolescents when parents control the environment which a child lives in, when they grow up, active genotype becomes more strong.  Adolescents/emerging adults are still developing the capacity to resist risky behavior o Rely heavily on intuitive thinking o Make different evaluations about the desirability of possible consequences.  Major Risks o Substance use and abuse peak early 20s  Once prefrontal kicks in o Automobile accidents leading cause of death (adolescents) o Depression and suicide, serious public health concerns o Homicide is another common cause of death in the U.S. during emerging adulthood o Rates of contracting STDs, including HIV, highest in early 20s  Piagetian Stages o Sensorimotor- 0-2-  Cognitive development involves learning how to coordinate activities of the senses with motor activities o Preoperational  2-7  Capable of representing the world symbolically (language) o Concrete operations  7-11  Become more adept at using mental operations  F o Formal operations  11-15 to 20  Allow adolescents to reason about more complex task and problem involving multiple variables  Involves the ability to think scientifically and apply concepts  Involves the development of the ability to think scientifically and apply the rigor of the scientific method to cognitive tasks  Hypothetical- deductive reasoning is the ability to arrive and defend an answer  Abstract thinking, complex thinking o Allows us to think ahead, formulate hypotheses and test them etc.  Complex thinking o Thinking that takes into account multiple connections and interpretations  Sarcasm  Metaphor  Adolescents become capable of understanding metaphors at 8-10.  Metacognition o Adolescents are aware of their thinking processes o The capacity for “thinking about thinking” enables adolescents to learn and solve problems more efficiently  Piagets research has inspired theories of cognitive development beyond formal operations known as: o Post-formal thinking  Pragmatism  Reflective Judgment  Reflective Judgment o The capacity to evaluate the accuracy and logical coherence of evident and arguments o Perry (1970;99) investigated reflection in adolescence and emerging adulthood which included  Dualistic Thinking  Multiple Thinking  Relativism  Commitment  Critical Thinking o Keating (2004)  Adolescence provide the potential for critical thinking in several ways  A wider range of knowledge is available in long-term memory across a variety of domains  The ability to consider different kinds of knowledge simultaneously is increased  More cognitive strategies are available for applying/gaining knowledge o Application  connection to other information o Analyzing  Cause and effect o Judgments of validity o DOES NOT happen automatically
