PSY504 Assignment#02 Solution

First of all you have to be aware about :processing:
then you will under stand the difference between control process and automatic process
1st scenario is about  automatic
2nd is controlled
3rd is controlled
4th is automatic
now you can easily justify about these scenarios
2nd question is about thought suppression and thought expression.
thought suppression is
Thought suppression is when an individual consciously attempts to stop thinking about a particular thought. We often try to control their thoughts in the hope that they will therefore be able to control their emotions, behaviors, or performances.
Thought expression is
to express thoughts clearly and confidently.
it is quite easy to discuss about these to aspect of thoughts

1. automatic
4. effortful 

controlled process are
Requires us to pay attention and deliberately put in effort. Control processing is initially done
When we are consciously aware of what we are doing. In other words we actually have to think about what is going On and make decisions.
We are controlled in these sorts of processes. For example when we first leer how to ride a bike.
automatic processes occur without us giving much thought to it. if we practise something long enough it becomes automatic.
playing the piano, walking and singing a song you are familiar with.
In automatic process tasks vary considerably in the amount of mental efforts required to perform them.
there are five criteria of intentional vs incidental learning
Intentional learning occurs when are deliberately trying to learn. while incidental learning occurs when we are not. for example, parents say their children do not lie but parents lie themselves. children learn from parent's and teacher's action rather saying.
