Critical Thinking: How much stress is too much? The level of stress a person can experience before it does harm to the human body remains an important question. In a study of medical students, many working between 70-80 hours per week, nearly half suffered from extremely high levels of stress. In general, the more hours worked, the greater the level of stress experienced by the student. Higher levels of stress often corresponded with unhealthy coping strategies, including drug and alcohol abuse (Kasi et al., 2007) In addition, the study found that the students’ stress level also put their patients at risk. Stressed residents were more likely to make errors and to compromise patient care (Pitt et al., 2004).
Question 3 (1 point) In Rotter’s model, the behavior that is most likely to be performed in a given situation is Question 3 options: the one that has been reinforced. the one with the strongest behavior potential. the one for which a model has been reinforced. the one most consistent with the person’s self concept. Question 4 (1 point) Marlene’s desk becomes so messy that on occasion she cannot find an important paper she is looking for. After several incidents in which she suffered the consequences of not finding a paper she needed (such as a homework assignment), she learned to organize and straighten her desk.

She thinks she would have a better chance of winning in the 100 meter race, but decides to enter the 10,000 meter race instead. According to Rotter’s theory, Question 5 options: her generalized expectancies determined this decision. the reinforcement value of winning the 10,000 meter race is greater than the reinforcement value of winning the 100 meter race. the decision illustrates that the behavior potential does not always determine behavior. she must have been reinforced for winning the 10,000 meter race in the past.
