1. Our everyday personality judgments are shaped not only by the primacy effect, but also by our prior set of beliefs about which personality traits go together. These assumptions or na?ve belief systems that we have about the associations among personality traits have been called an implicit personality theory. In this unscientific theory of personality, we have a strong tendency to assume that all good things occur together in persons and that all bad things do so as well, with little overlap between the two.Write two or three paragraphs giving an example of a time in your life when you made an incorrect assessment about someones character or personality based on the Implicit Personality Theory using the operating principle of evaluative consistency the tendency to view others that is internally consistent. Describe how later on when you learned more about the person you realized you had misjudged based on the implicit personality theory.Do not use examples stated in your textbook.2. What can we learn about two variables from a CORRELATIONAL STUDY? What do we mean by CAUSE AND EFFECT? We cannot determine CAUSE AND EFFECT from a correlational Study. Why not?
