(4.2) 2. A) “I was aware of maturity in some ways, but as far as learning about growing and going through puberty, I learned from my friends.

A) “This has happened in the last 10 years, I look at my self in the mirror and ask my self where my life has gone. As far as psychological problems I would have to say no, I have been very good at dealing with my physical changes and by embracing them they have made me happier”. 4.Dying and death is something everyone faces at some point in there life’s, how do you think the topic has affected you, and how do you look at dying?

7: 7.When there was a family discussion, where you and your siblings aloud to state your opinions? (4.3) 7.

A) “Well, I spent most my time working for the family outside, so we had animals to take care of and crops to tend to.

(4.4) 9. A) “ Yes, Men where expected to go to work and earn money for the family. The woman was expected to stay home and take care of the children, prepare dinner and clean the house.

(5.3) 4. A) “I’m currently not afraid of dying, I’m still young, and I’m not living life to dangerously.” I look at dying as a part of life, it happens to everyone, and there’s nothing we can do to stop it.” 5.Looking at the three types of motivations, which include achievement, fear and failure, what do you think you have used the most in your life? give a time when you used that type of motivation.

(20.1) 10. A) “I’m pretty good with not getting in trouble, and if I do its like no friends for a week, or I get my free lines token away. As far as it happening, I think getting in trouble is a common thing now a days.”

11: Conlusion | After interviewing my relatives and getting the results, I would have to say that what I found out was very surprising. My relatives I interviewed where each born in different generations, meaning that the answers to the interview questions where different from one another. When interviewing my dad who is 50, and then comparing that to my grandfather who’s is 76 I found out that being born in different times can determine how and what a person does in life. Surprisingly my father and grandfather had a lot of similar responses, they both stated that stress as well as emotional problems where not discussed with family members, but rather swept under the table. Obedience, was also very similar in both my fathers and grandfathers home, they both would get in big trouble and be spanked, but because getting in trouble was not tolerated it didn’t happen much. As for myself, I would say I am very open to my family about stress, and to be honest, I do not get punished often. All three of us had the same response to the awareness of physical changes, we all learned from our friends, not our parents. This interview project has been a great experience for me, I have learned how different and yet similar house holds and people are in different time periods. Its strange to see how different things have gotten and how other things have stayed the same. I have come think that now a days people have more mental problems because the fact we are more open about them now, when back then, they where not discussed about. This assignment should be done in every psychology class because it shows how and what can be behind a persons thinking by looking at there childhood as well as there personal experiences.
