    Individual differences, some people may have an active sex live and because of the release of oxytocin and endorphins they are less likely to develop a stress related illness.

    I did the exam last year, and thought I aced it out of the park but got a B. Here is my advice if you want to learn from my mistakes(hopefully you guys won't need it ), make sure you handwriting is neat and you have sufficient amount for the 12 marker. Also know meanings, all research methods properly like graphs and all that other crap .

    GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD luck!

    I doubt the handwriting is THAT important. As long as it's somewhat clear ... it shouldn't be too bad... Right?... RIGHT!?

    As far as I know ... No. When they ask you to "discuss" it usually means outline so not evaluate. The marks should tell you whether it's both outline and evaluate.

    if the question is 12 marks and it says discuss it is always 6 for a01'and 6 for a02 so you evaluate?

    I have some flashcards I made on stress. There's a 'learn' section where questions are asked on the topics and you just need to answer, If you get them wrong, you have to answer it again in the next round. Its helped me remember a lot of my psychology and sociology especially with the research studies.

    Do you want to use the flashcards?[/QUOTE
    Yes if you don't mind that would be a big help thank you!☺️
    could I use it to

    for the question outline and evaluate research into conformity
    include:
    -compliance and internalisation
    -normative is an example of compliance
    -informational is an example of internalisation
    -outline Asch's study about normative social influence
    -evaluate his study e.g lab study
    -weakness, based on men only and American too so suffers from cultural bias and age bias
    -use of students, don't generalise to other ages

    hope this helps I'm struggling on sherifs study about information social influence

    Really need help with bodily response to stress!
    The whole process
    Bodily response:

    Flight or flight/ short term response- SAM (think of the S in SAM as short term!) :
    hypothalamus -> activates the ANS -> which acts on the adrenal medulla -> to release adrenaline (vessels costrict and blood pressure increases) and noradrenaline (increase blood sugar) this pathway provides energy + other flight or flight responses eg. pupils dilate, sweating, lower pain sensitivity.

    When a stressor is persistent over time, HPA occurrs.

    Stressor activates the hypothalamus -> causes the pituitary gland -> to release ACTH. -> this acts on the adrenal cortex -> to release glucose and cortisol. HPA suppresses the immune system.
