Psychology 1300 Note Set  Feelings are an essential guide to our wants and needs  Instincts > Emotions > Values > Attitude > Behavior o Amoral (neither good/bad): instincts, emotions o Moral: values, attitude, behavior  Four maxims of the emotions: o No one can cause emotions in another; you can only stimulate what’s  already there o Every emotion is telling us something about ourselves  Impression – Expression = Depression o We learn to hide (repress) our emotions because we doubt others will  be able to understand how we feel. We also fear our vulnerability to  open up because we don’t want others to use it against us.  Criticism and condemnation also make us not want to share our  feelings o Repressed emotions do not die; our bodies reveal how we handle our  feelings over time. Example: If we constantly frown because we’re  upset or stressed, after enough time, we’ll start to have frown lines on  our face. We’re even programmed by our parents to repress some of  our feelings and we learn to deny some of our feelings as well.   What is the difference between intrinsic and extrinsic motivation? o Intrinsic motivation: Wanting to behave a certain way because it’s  enjoyable in itself, not because an external award is attached o Extrinsic motivation: Wanting to behave a certain way to gain a  reward or avoid a consequence   What motives are acquired through interactions with others? o Our social motives are achieved through interacting with others.  What theory explains the biological approach to motivation? o This is called the drive­reduction theory. This theory suggests that our biological needs create internal states of tension or arousal (drives)  which we’re motivated to reduce. This theory is coined by Clark Hull. In simpler terms, this theory says that all organisms have biological  needs that must be met if they are to survive.   What type of psychologist deals with motivation and job performance in the  workplace? o They are called industrial or organizational psychologists  What are the basic tenants of emotions? o Emotions are unlearned and universal o Emotions are reflected in the same way across all cultures o Fear, anger, distrust, surprise, happiness, and sadness are the most  basic emotions  According to Maslow, what is the hallmark of self­actualizers? o The hallmark of self­actualizers is frequently occurring peak  experiences, experiences of deep meaning, insight, and harmony  within and with the universe.   What is the definition of motivation? o All the processes that initiate, direct, and sustain behavior
