2. How and when is peer pressure harmful? Can it ever be helpful? Why?
Peer pressure is when "friends" persuade you to doing something that you do not want to do. But maybe you want to do it, and you just don't have the courage to do it and your friends talk you into it. [ Peer Pressure can be broken down into two areas; good peer pressure and bad peer pressure. Bad peer pressure is being coerced into doing something that you didn't want to do because your friends
said that you should. Friends have a tendency to think that they know what is best for you, and if your friends are like some of ours, they always offer their opinion whether it is wanted or not Well, if friends are going to tell you what to do, what can you do about it? The most basic thing that you can do is to say "No, I don't wish to do that!" or if you want to do it, say "Yes, give me a try!" ]

User: 3. What types of changes occur in the brain in late adulthood?

Weegy: There are declines with age in speed of processing, working memory, inhibitory function, and long-term memory, as well as decreases in brain structure size and white matter integrity. [ In the face of these decreases, functional imaging studies have demonstrated, somewhat surprisingly, reliable increases in prefrontal activation. To account for these joint phenomena, we propose the scaffolding theory of aging and cognition (STAC). STAC provides an integrative view of the aging mind, suggesting that pervasive increased frontal activation with age is a marker of an adaptive brain that engages in compensatory scaffolding in response to the challenges posed by declining neural structures and function. Scaffolding is a normal process present across the lifespan that involves use and development of complementary, alternative neural circuits to achieve a particular cognitive goal. Scaffolding is protective of cognitive function in the aging brain, and available evidence suggests that the ability to use this mechanism is strengthened by cognitive engagement, exercise, and low levels of default network engagement. ]

What do you think it means to be bias and how can reflection help limit bias? How do you detect bias?
Weegy: Bias typically involves a leaning or predisposition on an issue that may inhibit being neutral when communicating with others. [ When bias exists in attitudes, it is often reflected in the language and the way in which individuals interact with each other. Language can have a significant impact on the quality of our interactions. Many times, we do not intend to exclude or offend others by the words we choose. We may simply lack information about, and sensitivity to, certain words or phrases. Being aware and mindful of our language, both written and oral, can help create a supportive and inclusive climate. ] (More)

What are some of the factors that affect social development in adulthood? 2. What is a midlife transition? 3. Do you know anyone who has experienced this? What did they go through? How did it affect them personally, professionally, physically, and/or emotionally?
Weegy: What Are Some of the Factors That Affect Social Development in Adulthood? Transitional Years A shift in the way that people transition from adolescence to adulthood has taken place in western industrialized countries. [ [ Teenagers are taking longer, often up to the age of 25 to explore the period of early adulthood. This results in a greater tange of education, experiences and change before settling into adulthood. Career Choice The career that a young adult enters into plays a large part in determining the types of social skills he develops and the social norms that he finds acceptable. Careers affect almost every aspect of life for an adult. Relationships The relationships that adults form play a large part in the development of personal character. A person forms friendships, business relationships and romantic partnerships. Experience Age and experience play a role in social development. An older person usually has had a number of life experiences that provide a perspective and an experience that cannot be gained in any other way. "Mid-life transition" is something that happens to many of us at some point during life (usually at about 40, give or take 20 years). It is a natural process and it is a normal part of maturing. Mid-life can raise issues such as: Discontent with life or the lifestyle that may have provided happiness for many years Boredom with things/people that have held great interest and dominated your life Feeling adventurous and wanting to do something completely different Questioning the meaning of life, and the validity of decisions clearly and easily made years before Confusion about who you are, or where your life is going ] ] (More)
