  • Emotional Development: Infancy

    Emotional Development: Infancy
    As an infant, I was Securely attached to my caregiver.
  • Physical Development: Infancy

    Physical Development: Infancy
    I started walking around age 1.
  • Cognitive Development: Infancy

    Cognitive Development: Infancy
    During infancy Piaget's Stage of cognitive development is the sensorimotor stage. During this stage I loved playing with my wooden animals and my Noah's Ark. I would try and see different ways in which they fit, or how I could pair them up, what would happen if I used things other than the wooden animals. (Tertiary circular reactions, novelty and curiosity) I also loved watching my older sister, anything she would do I would do.
  • Cognitive Development: Early Childhood

    In Piget's Theory of development The Preoperational Phase, specifically the Symbolic Function substage (age 2-4) is when a child can mentally represent if an object is not present. When I went to my grandmothers recently she showed me a picture I drew of my grandparents with a sweet note included. Of course it looked exactly like them.. Because at this stage children use scribbles to represent things
  • Cognitive Development: Early Childhood

    One way that my mom helped me with my language acquisition was by using Recasting. She also encouraged lots of reading, or reading to me.
  • Emotional Development: Early Childhood

    Emotional Development: Early Childhood
    My temperament as a child was an "Easy Child." This was different from me as an infant, when I could be considered a "Difficult Child"
  • Cognitive Development: Early Childhood

    Cognitive Development: Early Childhood
    In early childhood my interest were doing things like playing dress up, playing with dolls, my sister and my neighbors. I was very interested in science and reading. I also enjoyed nature and animals. The research on a child's concept of formalization would fit with my interest in my early childhood. ( in the photo my cousin and I are playing doctor)
  • Cognitive Development: Middle/Late Childhood

    In Piaget's Theory of development during the pre operational stage, specifically the intuitive thought substage, children want to know the answers to all types of questions. During this stage I was infatuated with planets and space. I loved Jupiter, so much so I did an entire report on all the cool things about it.
  • Cognitive Development: Middle/Late childhood

    In my late childhood years, the concept of intelligence was introduced by the GRC program at my school. If you were a "gifted" child you could be in the program, and if you weren't you had to be in an "enrichment" class. This concept of intelligence made me see myself as not so smart. It made me think that to be intelligent you have to be tested, and told so in order to reap the benefits to be in the program
  • Physical Development: Childhood

    Physical Development: Childhood
    In my childhood I exercised daily. I took dance classes, played outside, rode bikes, swam or really anything I could. I loved doing these activities.
  • Physical Development: Childhood

    Physical Development: Childhood
    As a child some activities I enjoyed were ballet, art, and playing outside. Ballet (and playing outside) was helpful in improving motor skills of balance, and precision in all areas of my body. Art was especially helpful in helping me improve my fine motor skills in my hands.
  • Cognitive Development: Middle/Late Childhood

    In Piaget's Theory of Cognitive Development the Concrete Operational Stage children are able to perform concrete operations, and think logically about them. An example of this would be me getting on the dock outside my house. It was extremely wobbly so I learned from past experience not to lean over too far to else Ill fall in. I further applied this in the case if too many people were on the dock at once I wouldn't get on in order not to fall off.
  • Physical Development: Adolescence

    Physical Development: Adolescence
    As an adolescent I entered puberty early. I think it influenced my development in a negative way. Girls who enter puberty sooner are more likely to drink, smoke, engage sexually sooner, have unstable relationships, be drawn into risky behavior and have older friends. I would say this was all compatable with my development.
  • Physical Development: Adolescence

    Physical Development: Adolescence
    As an adolescent I would exercise daily. I exercised through activities to relieve stress, enjoy myself, and pass time. I enjoyed hula hooping and I was the mascot for two years for my school. I also enjoyed taking long walks and bike rides.
  • Cognitive Development: Adolescence

    Cognitive Development: Adolescence
    In Piaget's Theory of Cognitive Development, The Formal Operational Stage is then adolescence reason in more abstract, idealistic and logical ways. My Dad always taught me to use hypothetical deductive reasoning. For example, if my car broke and we didn't have the part to fix it we would always find other way to fix the problem.
  • Emotion Development: Adolescence

    For Sternbergs Triangular Theory of Love he states that love has three components: passion, intimacy, and commitment. As an adolescent I only experience intimacy which would include feelings of warmth, closeness,and sharing.
  • Physical Development: Adulthood

    Physical Development: Adulthood
    I exercise probably a couple times a week through activities like hula hooping, walking, working, and yoga. These activities are not as fun as they used to be, since there is little time to do them in my busy schedule.
  • Cognitive Devcopement: Adulthood

    In Piaget's Formal Operational Stage a person develops means to reason in more abstract, idealistic and logical ways. I find myself thinking daily how everyday I learn something new. This reminds me of how the more I know, the less I know. I find it helpful to be able to be creative and always come up with a solution when I previously thought there wasn't one.
  • Emotional Development: Adulthood

    Emotional Development: Adulthood
    In my current closest relationship (with my partner) I would describe my attachment style as secure.
  • Emotional Development: Adulthood

    As an adult in a relationship I would say I experience all three of Sternberg's requirements for his Theory of Love being passion, commitment and affection.
