 Unit 2 Assignment: Summarization

Attached Files:

Throughout your coursework and professional career, it is extremely important that you write in your own words.  You will often be tasked with reading key materials and then be asked to incorporate the content into a paper, or other type of written or oral presentation.  At times, the material you are reading might be quite technical, and it might be challenging for you to present these ideas in your own words.  This is your opportunity to practice this important skill. 

 Review the following websites to learn about summarizing:

Textbook Passage: 

“…how much of our behavior is a consequence of our unique and special qualities, the individual differences that differentiate us from other people? Conversely, how much reflects the culture and society in which we live, stemming from universal principles that underlie the behavior of all humans? Psychologists who rely on the neuroscience perspective tend to look for universal principles of behavior, such as how the nervous system operates or the way certain hormones automatically prime us for sexual activity. Such psychologists concentrate on the similarities in our behavioral destinies despite vast differences in our upbringing. In contrast, psychologists who employ the humanistic perspective focus more on the uniqueness of every individual. They consider every person’s behavior a reflection of distinct and special individual qualities.” 

 Summarize this paragraph in your own words and include the following reference for your textbook below your summary:
