Answer Key

1. b Rationale: The components of emotion are physiological changes in the face, brain, and body; cognitive processes such as appraisals and interpretations of events; action tendencies that spur us to fight or flee, embrace or withdraw; and subjective feeling. (Page 448, Factual, Moderate, LO 13.1, APA 1.1)

2. b Rationale: The seven facial expressions that Paul Ekman found to be universally recognized and expressed are anger, happiness, fear, surprise, disgust, sadness, and contempt. (Page 448, Factual, Moderate, LO 13.2, APA 1.1, 1.2)

3. d Rationale: Darwin argued that facial expressions are innate, and that they evolved because they were adaptive. (Page 448, Factual, Easy, LO 13.2, APA 1.1, 1.2)

4. c Rationale: Facial feedback affects our emotional states, causing us to tend to feel the emotion that is being expressed. (Page 449, Applied, Easy, LO 13.2, APA 1.1, 2.2)

5. b Rationale: Regions of the right prefrontal cortex are specialized for the impulse to withdraw or escape (as in disgust and fear). (Page 451, Factual, Difficult, LO 13.3, APA 1.1, 2.2)

6. b Rationale: Stanley Schachter and Jerome Singer argued that the experience of emotion depends both on physiological arousal and on how you interpret and explain that arousal. (Page 455, Factual, Difficult, LO 13.6, APA 1.1, 1.2, 2.2)

7. c Rationale: This is a definition of emotion work. (Page 459, Factual, Easy, LO 13.7, APA 1.1)

8. a Rationale: In Western cultures, both sexes unconsciously associate “angry” with male and “happy” with female. (Page 459, Factual, Moderate, LO 13.8, APA 1.1, 2.2)

9. d Rationale: People with an external locus of control tend to believe that their lives are controlled by luck, fate, or other people, whereas those with an internal locus of control tend to believe that they are responsible for what happens to them. (Page 466, Applied, Moderate, LO 13.13, APA 1.1, 2.1, 2.2)

10. c Rationale: The only factor associated with the Type A personality that is related to heart disease is cynical or antagonistic hostility. (Page 468, Factual, Easy, LO 13.14, APA 1.1, 2.2)
