B. accentuate the importance of reasoning over performance. C. [ have never been associated with the concept of mental age. D. provide an advantage to people who don't rely mainly on verbal skills: IQ classification is the
practice by IQ test publishers of labeling IQ score ranges with category names such as "superior" or "average."[1][2][3] There are several publishers of IQ tests. No two publishers use exactly the same classification labels. IQ classification labels have changed from time to time since the beginning of IQ testing a century ago. IQ scores have been derived by two different methods since the invention of IQ tests. The first method historically was the "quotient IQ," based on estimating a "mental age" of the test-taker (rounded to a specified number of years and months), which was then divided by the test-taker's "chronological age" (rounded to a specified number of years and months). For example, a mental age score of thirteen years and zero months for a test-taker with the chronological age ten years and zero months results in a quotient of 1.3 after doing the division. The division result was then multiplied by 100 so that scores could be reported without decimal points. Thus the score in the example would be reported as IQ 130. The current scoring method for all IQ tests is the "deviation IQ." In this method, an IQ score of 100 means that the test-taker's performance on the test is at the median level of performance in the sample of test-takers of about the same age used to norm the test. An IQ score of 115 means performance one standard deviation above the median, a score of 85 performance one standard deviation below the median, and so on.[4] Lewis Terman and other early developers of IQ tests noticed that most child IQ scores come out to approximately the same number by either procedure. Deviation IQs are now used for standard scoring of all IQ tests in large part because they allow a consistent definition of IQ for both children and adults. ]

Weegy: The research of social psychologist Vincent Hsu determined that Americans tend to fulfill their ideal of self-reliance through A. conforming to role models. B. developing personal ideals. C. strong individualism. D. [ rebellion against social norms.: There have been many American experimental social psychologists that are known for their radical experiments. Timothy Leary, for example, experimented with LSD and the effect of it in large groups. Stanley Milgram performed an obedience experiment when people were led to believe they were electrocuting someone with increasing intensity. c. "The patient must be viewed simultaneously as a disturbed person and as a diseased central nervous system. The former view requires an empathic, subjective approach, whereas the latter demands an objective, medical model approach. The clinician must be able to shift between these two modes gracefully while remaining attuned to the impact of the shift on the patient" (p. 151). Gabbard notes that patients sometimes feel like their doctors are "giving up on them" when they recommend medication. He also notes that clinicians and patients often disagree about the relative contributions of psychotherapy and medication. In my experience, patients are often too eager to attribute positive treatment gains to pharmacological effects. The psychological effects of medication are especially clear when patients report significant improvement within a day or two after starting SSRIs, or after taking homeopathic doses of their prescribed medications, or when they say that they "only take my Wellbutrin when I'm having a bad day." Some quibbles: The doctor's chair is too far forward; his shoes are in the patient's peripheral vision and he should be completely out of view. (That way she will feel more free to say whatever comes to mind - free associate - without concern over his reactions.) There shouldn't be a painting in the patient's line of sight, either, because it will influence the ... (More)
