Outline what is meant by soft determinism. [2 marks] A psychologist investigated the effect of the presence of a friend on mood. She used a controlled laboratory experiment. She asked a group of participants to rate their happiness on a scale. In Condition 1 (Alone Condition), participants completed the scale after sitting alone in a room for 30 minutes. In Condition 2 (Friend Condition), the same participants completed the same scale after sitting for 30 minutes in a room with a friend. The conditions were counterbalanced. The psychologist analysed the results of the study using a Wilcoxon test. The analysis showed that happiness ratings were significantly higher in the Friend Condition. 0 2 Explain two reasons why it was appropriate to use a Wilcoxon test in this situation. Refer to the description of the study in your answer. [4 marks] The psychologist claimed to have demonstrated a causal explanation for happiness. 0 3 What is meant by a causal explanation?

I do the household jobs and you earn plenty of money. It works well.” Sam says, “It balances out. Also, it would be such a waste if we split up now. We’ve each put a lot of time and effort into this relationship and we have a lovely home. It could never be this good with anyone else.” 0 7 Use your knowledge of theories of romantic relationships to explain the comments made by Chris and Sam.

He concentrates on what the other boys are doing and why.” 0 9 Use your knowledge of cognitive explanations for gender development to explain the comments made by Olga and Frank.
