Can you think of recent examples of how Maslow’s hierarchy of needs might have affected your behavior in some way?
Producers of popular movies and series typically indicate that they have increased representation regarding people of different sizes, sexual orientations, gender expressions, and abilities. Do you think that is true? Is representation a way to support diverse people?
In 2020 the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the Civil Rights Act must apply workplace protections to people regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression. Do you think the ruling has—or will—result in improved overall acceptance and opportunities for LGBTQ people?
Think about times in your life when you have been absolutely elated (e.g., perhaps your school’s basketball team just won a closely contested ballgame for the national championship) and very fearful (e.g., you are about to give a speech in your public speaking class to a roomful of 100 strangers). How would you describe how your arousal manifested itself physically? Were there marked differences in physiological arousal associated with each emotional state?
