I have learned so many things throughout this Psychology course. However, just like any other semester-long course, it is impossible for me to retain all of that knowledge. While many things will slip from my memory, I know there will be a few psychological concepts that I will definitely be able to remember in five years. The one concept that I believe I will be able to recall most clearly in five years is the concept of love and intimate relationships, and how psychology influences them. In five years I will be almost 25, the age where many people start to settle down with someone that they believe they can spend the rest of their life with. To find this person, attraction and the psychological influences come in to play. There is a good chance that I will be attracted to someone that I see on a regular basis, and according to our textbook, I will find someone with the most "average" looking face the most attractive. And if I am already in a relationship with someone, I will know about the triangle of love, and I will be able to categorize how my relationship is based on passion, intimacy and commitment. Hopefully it will be all three!
