Sternberg's Triangular Theory of Love Term Paper

… Sternberg Triangular Theory

Although the divorce rate is staying the same and not continually increasing as in past years, the numbers remain upsetting. The divorce rate in the United States had generally been going up throughout the 20th century until reaching a high in the late 1970s. It has slowly decreased since then. Now there are about 20 divorces for every 1,000 women over age 15. This number is down from the 23 divorces per 1,000 women in 1978, but it is still much greater than the 5 per 1,000 during the 1950s. The number of single mothers who are not getting married is rising as well.

Concerned about the country's high divorce rate, clergy, educators, social scientists, politicians, and others are looking for ways…. [read more]

… Implicit Factors and Love: Change in the Intensity of Love Over Time

Every human needs and desires love (caring support), from the time they are born, until they die. It is a basic tenet of philosophy and psychology that the human psyche needs the love and supportive care of a significant person in their lives, in childhood to build up the ego and in adult life to support it. Most humans desire the companionship and close intimacy of another human with which to share life's positive and negative events, to bolster the spirit and assure one of one's worth. When an individual chooses a life partner one expects the sharing and mutual support to continue for the rest of the two lives, but there are…. [read more]

Theories of Love

Sternberg proposed a Triangular Theory of Love (Sternberg, 1986), in which each point of the triangle shape represented an important element or ingredient for love. The three elements that he included were intimacy, passion and commitment. Intimacy, according to Sternberg, refers to the feelings that bring a couple to feel close to each other, concern for the welfare of one another, and a sense of happiness, shared positive regard, support and intimate communication. Passion refers to the sexual arousal one feels for the other, and the belief that one can have their sexual needs met by this person and vice versa. Commitment refers to the conscious decision….

Causes and Consequences of Romantic Love Article Review

… Romantic Love

Causes and Consequences of Romantic Love

How do I love these -- let me count the ways. So the poet advises the lovers of the world, but the advice could just as well be given to scholars investigating the ways in which romantic love is understood and explicated. This paper examines the ways in which a number of different scholars have defined love, trying to put into words an emotion that can feel for those who are experiencing far too deep for everyday speech.

While there are important differences among the findings of these ten different studies, there are important connections among the studies, especially when other factors are taken into account, such as whether love is being defined in terms of long-term…. [read more]

Romantic Love in My First Term Paper

… The elements of immaturity that were such a disappointment to me at the end of our relationship actually surfaced much earlier, but I excused them in a form of denial.

One of the most painful disappointments for me was the hostility and defensiveness that resulted on his part virtually anytime we had a disagreement. He reacted to any criticism or request for change as though it were a personal attack and a complete rejection of him on my part, to which he either responded with hostility or complete silence and emotional withdrawal. He admitted to me that this probably was at least partly a function of the way his mother treated him, telling him that he was

"useless" or a "disgrace" for quite minor disappointments.…. [read more]

Attraction and Love the Song Essay

… " In this song he wants her touch so desperately he uses the metaphor of a "lonely river" that flows "to the open arms of the sea." The level he wants is close enough to be touched, to satisfy his hunger.

So, if a mere river (that happens to be lonely like the singer) is flowing to the sea and the sea is waiting there with open arms, he wants to know why he can't just flow to the sea of her warm loving and open arms. Cacioppo & Patrick (2008) suggest loneliness is to feel "deprived of human social connections" and he might in fact be depriving himself of any contact because he misses her so much.

Question TWO: the love described in the…. [read more]

Theories of intelligence have evolved through a series of paradigms. The major paradigms are psychometrics, cognitive psychology, contextualism, and biological. Below we compare and contrast Spearman-factor analysis, Thurstone-primary mental abilities, Howard Gardner's Theory of Multiple Intelligence, and Robert Sternberg constructed a three prong triarchic theory of intelligence

Spearman-factor analysis

The first major psychometric theorist was psychologist Charles E. Spearman, who argued that People who did well on one mental ability test also did well on the others, and people who did not do well on one of them also did not do well on the others.

In order to confirm his prediction, Spearman devised a technique for statistical analysis, which he called factor analysis. By using factor analysis, Spearman was able to…. [read more]

Personal Theory on Personality Development Term Paper

… Personal Theory of Psychological Development

The formal academic study of human psychology is not much more than a century old, with most of its fundamental concepts evolving only in the 20th century. The study of human personality is a particularly complex area of human psychology because it is a product of so many independent variables, as well as on their interrelationships.

Undoubtedly, there are biological components to the makeup of personality; there are also myriad environmental factors, some of which even alter physiological development and function. Early experiences, especially those within the nuclear family unit, can have profound influence on the personality of the individual; even birth order plays a role in various aspects of personality; they are also linked directly to specific physiological processes….

Concepts of love are used in literature to explore how love impacts human relationships, the role of love within the lifespan, how love influences decision making, and how individuals choose to measure their lives in love.

Rather, the facilitator needs to pay respect and attention to each, using the counseling skills to do so, but simultaneously utilizing the talents and capacities of each member to benefit the group as a whole. In other words, the focus should be on each, but just as long, and to the extent that, the group as a whole benefits.

Relational Discourse in a Film Research Paper

… Meta communication

Based on DeVito, metacommunication has been "communication which describes many other communications" (2001, p. 136). Quite simply, metacommunication has been making reference to communication. For instance, if two couples sit back to speak about a disagreement they just experienced, they have been metacommunicating due to the fact they have been referring to the conversation that occurred within the disagreement. Metacommunication may be conversation regarding both verbal as well as nonverbal interaction. In case a girlfriend has been speaking with her boyfriend and then she gripes that her partner doesn't appear to be paying attention to her judging through his insufficient eye contact (nonverbal communication), then this girlfriend has been metacommunicating simply because she has been referring to her partner's nonverbal interaction (Mann, 2003).….

Other somewhat subjective "soft" or human sciences developed quite rapidly in the eighteenth and especially the nineteenth centuries, with sociology, economics, and political…. [read more]

Adult Education Lesson Cognition vs. Metacognition Essay

… Adult Education


Cognition vs. Metacognition

There are significant differences between learning and learning how to learn. Learning is a cognitive strategy, whereas learning how to learn is metacognitive. According to the cognitive approach, learning involves interaction and experience, and learning is scaffolded upon previously learned information (Wirth & Perkins, 2008). The cognitive viewpoint suggests that learning can be defined as not only knowing information, but knowing how to use it. This is different, however, from learning how to learn, which is metacognitive. Metacognition is a term which essentially means 'thinking about thinking.' Metacognition involves the use of higher order thinking skills to regulate one's learning. Sternberg suggests that "the ability to appropriately allocate cognitive resources, such as deciding how and when a given task…. [read more]

… Giftedness: Literature Review


The issue of giftedness and the problematics of identifying and dealing with the gifted child in the educational environment is one that has raised concern and even contention in academic circles. The question of giftedness is also strongly related to the ongoing debate and research about human Intelligence. Some critics state that in contemporary research "... giftedness and gifted education have somehow managed to escape comparable critical analysis" (Margolin, 1994, p. xiii). One of the reasons given for this lack of focus is the dominance of studies on deviance and social problems in education, which has led to the relegation of the question of giftedness to the periphery of modern educational and sociological discourse. This has resulted in a situation where"...…. [read more]

Benjamin Banneker Term Paper

… Banneker


For many generations, the intelligence quota, or IQ test, has been the basis for comparing the intelligence of one person to another. That is, an individual's intelligence is based on the ability to solve problems, utilize logic, and think critically. These usual traits of intelligence are sometimes grouped together under the heading of "raw intelligence." Howard Gardner Harvard Graduate School of Education and Harvard Project Zero approaches this measurement in another way: He asks scholars and educators to consider that each individual has "multiple" intelligences and may be stronger in one area than another: musical, bodily-kinesthetic, logical-mathematical, linguistic, spatial, interpersonal and intrapersonal.

… Further, it is possible to interpret many intelligence questions in multiple ways (especially in the case of extremely intelligent test takers). Consider, for example, the following experience of one young man faced with an ambiguous question:

Indeed an intelligence test I was once forced to do required me to put certain cards in the 'proper' sequence to show a sunrise/sunset. Of course the test monitor wouldn't tell me if it was a sunrise or sunset which I was meant to show, despite the fact that the cards would naturally have to be put in reverse order to show a sunrise rather than a sunset. Thus to my mind intelligence tests seem to test for rigid thought and thus deny the very creativity which in children…. [read more]

Probably, her most famous written work is Ain't I a Woman: Black Women and Feminism (1981), where she equates racial discrimination to sexism, challenges the feminist camps to begin to include black women in the fight for women's rights and most importantly challenges black women to fight as adamantly for feminism as they have for racial civil rights. As an interesting anecdote, Gloria Watkins is still Hooks' legal name but she chose a writing persona early on in her career and…. [read more]

The idea of "intelligence" is a commonly held understanding that, for many years, was unbound by the definitions, practical examinations, and ultimate applications of in the scientific field. From Sternberg to Spearman, psychologists over the last hundred years have attempted to shed light on the popular idea of intelligence and turn its nebulous concept into one of concrete measured understanding. Some psychologists stress the importance of the interaction between heredity and the environment that lead to one's development of intelligence; Binet, Weschler, and Piaget focused particularly on this complex concept in structuring their own views of intelligence. Still others attempted to examine the disparity between scientist's view of intelligence and that of the general population or the multi-faceted manners in which it…. [read more]

When focused on other people, this dimension encompasses what is meant by affect sensitivity (Campbell, Kagan, & Krathwohl, 1971), affect-receiving ability (Buck, 1976) and nonverbal sensitivity (Rosenthal, Hall, DiMatteo, Rogers, & Archer, 1979).
