What I will never forget from this class would probably be Development and Learning. While we were going over these chapters over the semester I was particularly interested because I am expecting to have a daughter in August. So just learning about the way babies learn was very interesting. Something in development that stuck out to me was how the brain develops and ideas such as object permanence. As far as learning, conditioning stuck out to me because I began thinking of ways i could condition my daughter to do certain things. So these two chapters were the ones that stuck out to me the most.

Everybody has an explanation for their behavior. Some people say its their personality others blame the situation for their actions. Many people believe that some situations bring out a persons true personality. Another group of people say that some situations can force people to do things that we wouldn't normally do. I believe that both personality and the situation has its factors on behavior. We have all been in a situation where no matter what happens we have to do something out of character to get out of a situation. There are also those situations that show people's character. For example, if a person confronts you with a problem then how you react is based upon your personality. But if that same person tries to fight you then in that situation you would fight back to defend yourself. So I think both situation and personality factor into behavior.
