THIS PAPER HAS ALREADY BEEN WRITTEN I NEED THINGS ADDED TO THE PAPER ONLY
THIS IS WHAT I NEED ADDED…
You still need:
two characteristics or actions by Josh.
another thing making him more likely to be aggressive done by Elizabeth. (credit for 1: aggressive modeling)
four factors related to four-factor theory of emotions illustrated in the vignette.
THIS IS THE PAPER ALREADY WRITTEN
Emotions Part 1
Josh became aggressive because he felt that the stranger harmed their loved one. “At a point, a man bumped into the woman, causing her almost to lose her footing.” Also, Josh felt the rage, or perhaps adrenaline rush that encouraged him to become more aggressive. “The husband could hear his heart pounding in his ears…he decided he must be angrier than he realized. In short, Josh was motivated by physical abuse on his wife, with little indications of verbal abuse.
Four Factor Model
Arousal: this refers to causes of anxiety, which can be linked to conflicting behaviors or values, “at that point, a man bumped into the woman…”
Behavior control: this is when individuals try to control their anger, yet leakage may sometimes occur. “The husband could hear his heart pounding in his ears…”
Emotion: Emotions can be betrayed through micro-motions on the face. “…but began yelling at the man saying he had insulted his wife.”
Thinking: Moving away from traps by creating more generalities. “…the husband’s cursing while taking control and separating him from the other man.”
Elizabeth’s positive, non-aggressive modeling helped Josh control his anger to some extent. “…she tried to make a joke out of it and laugh it off.” Elizabeth might have encouraged her husband to become more aggressive, “at first, she angrily told him to ‘watch it’! Here, Josh must have felt responsible for protecting his wife through confrontation, which leads to aggression and sometimes violence. Secondly, making a joke out of the incident could only encourage Josh to act aggressively. For one reason, the statement made Josh feel like his wife was helpless at the time, and hence the need for help.
THIS IS THE GUIDELINES TO THE PAPER ALREADY WRITTEN
Note: Please read this entire question carefully. This is Part I of a two-part assignment.
Read the text below describing the setting, a political rally. Then answer the questions under “Interpretations,” “Explanations Based on Theory,” and “Argumentation” below.
“Aggressive Acts at a Political Rally”
A large political rally for presidential candidate Louise Cranston is taking place in a baseball stadium in this Midwestern city. Police and reporters estimate over 15,000 supporters are present. In addition, there are a number of protesters who are standing on the fringes of the rally waving signs and chanting slogans trying to interrupt the candidate’s speech. Many in the crowd express frustration at waiting in line for hours undergoing unnecessarily slow security checks, then hours more waiting for the candidate and her team who were late arriving.
News coverage of recent rallies had shown the candidate’s supporters punching or kicking protestors, but the campaign security officers generally did nothing or just escorted the protesters out while supporters hurled insults at the protesters or urged others to hit them again. Supporters of the candidate (along with newscasters) generally seemed to believe the violence was helping their candidate in the polls (rewards and costs).
Near the stage the standing crowd is dense. There is lots of excitement with people jostling around , each trying to get the best view of the candidate. It is a hot summer day, in the high 90s, with bright mid-day sun and everyone is sweating. Minutes earlier, a fight broke out in the crowd not too far away (aggressive modeling) and a protester was dragged out while other supporters expressed support for supporters involved in the scuffle. One supporter of the candidate even displayed his gun in a holster as he shouted at the protester, “You’re not welcome here.”
In the middle of the crowd stood a married couple, Josh and Elizabeth, both had recently moved to the state from the South. The couple, like those around them, were excited, cheering loudly and waving energetically in support of the candidate. They were more boisterous than usual, having had several beers at lunch before stepping inside the stadium, and their hearts were racing with excitement.
At that point a man bumped into the woman causing her to almost lose her footing. At first she angrily told him to “watch it!” But then, seeing that her husband appeared to be getting angry, she tried to make a joke out of it and laugh it off. The husband could hear his heart pounding in his ears and tried to make sense of it. He decided he must be angrier than he had realized. He tried to control his anger but began yelling at the man saying he had insulted his wife. A nearby security guard stepped in and tried to calm the husband, ignoring the husband’s cursing while taking control and separating him from the other man. As the husband turned his anger against the guard, the man who had bumped the woman took advantage of this to slip away into the crowd. Meanwhile the guard ignored the insults the husband was hurling at him and tried to calm the husband down.
Name two characteristics or actions by Josh that encourage him to become aggressive, giving a quotation to show where each occurs.
Explanations Based on Theory
What are the four factors in the four factor theory of emotion? For each include a quotation showing where they occurred in this vignette.
One of your friends reads this and concludes that Elizabeth (the man’s wife) made a big effort to keep her husband from becoming aggressive through positive non-aggressive modeling. What quotation from the text shows where she did this? But another friend says he identified three ways in which she actually made it more likely her husband would be aggressive. Identify at least two ways she encouraged him to be more aggressive. Based on this, overall, do you think she did more to increase his aggression or decrease it?
A good essay for Part I of this assignment will probably require roughly 1-2 pages. Do not just list the questions and respond to them in a list. Your essay should look like an essay with a broad introduction that sets the context and a broad conclusion that pulls the various elements together and provides a summary or closure. It should be organized into paragraphs with related content together in the same paragraph and with transitions and paragraph headings that help convey your narrative or your argument.
