FC: Generations Interview | BY:Chance Pickenpaugh

1: Prefix | P.2: P.3 P. | Introduction Response from older generation | 1

2: The objective of this interview is to see the psychological and environmental changes taking place over a period of separate generations. There will be a series of ten questions asked to two separate generations not including me | 2

3: Response: Older generation: Homer > born1937-age:73 1.How much time did you spend outdoors in your youth? (Give examples) Probably about eight hours a day, on days that I didn’t have school. I was a counselor in the Y.M.C.A and spent as much time outdoors. 2.Of the four parenting styles which include authoritarian, democratic, permissive, and uninvolved which parenting styles did your parents use? (3.3) Authoritarian, my life was very controlled and if I didn’t do what was supposed to be done I was punished for it. 3.From the people around you, and in your past, how many are/were driven mostly by the desire to achieve? (12.2) Seven or eight people including myself, I strived for excellence in everything I do. 4.How do you think emotions have shaped your decisions (give specific examples) and how they have affected your physical, behavioral, and cognitive abilities? (12.3) Emotions run everything that you do such as love, anger, anxiety, hate, and fear. When I love someone I would want to be with them and I would think about them, I would not spend any longer at work than I had to so I could be with the people I love. | 3

4: 5.Of the four types of conflict situations which are Approach-Approach (you must choose between to attractive options), Avoidance-Avoidance (you must choose between two disagreeable options), Approach-Avoidance (both enjoyable and disagreeable consequences), and Double Approach-Avoidance (multiple options all with enjoyable and disagreeable consequences) which do you find more stressful? (15.1) (Double Avoidance-Approach)- I feel life is this way. There are enjoyable things that you do such as go to the casino or go to a friends house or go out to eat with friends. There are also bad things such as fights with family/neighbor, or an accident. 6.Out of these three coping skills for stress, which do you think is most useful?(expand on reasoning and personal preference)”Seeking social support” “Active coping”- take additional action to try and get rid of the problem, “Acceptance”- learn to live with the problem, and “Turning to rel Gods help.(15.3) (Active coping)- I chose this one because if I am addressed with a problem I will take care of it if I could, but if I couldn't do anything about it then I don't worry about it. | 4

5: 7.Why might it be easier to obey if you are shielded from the consequences of your action?(19.14) It doesn't matter what happens after your actions, you will know what you did and you will live with your own conscious. 8.Denial is a coping skill in which you act as if a situation is not stressful. How have you used denial to deal with stress in your life? What were the short and long term outcomes?(15.3) The only denials I had is that I couldn’t deal with something and once I realized that I could my denial went away. 9.Do you feel like there is/was a large amount of pressure to conform in groups? Have you ever conformed to a group? How did you feel? (19.1) I was in the service and conformance was survival for us. I didn’t feel pressured into the group because I knew what I was supposed to be doing. 10.How and why has your attitude changed over time? Is the change beneficial?(20.1) Age, I don’t sweat things anymore. This is beneficial because stress is reduced when you don’t sweat stuff. | 5

6: Younger generation: James > born1962-Age: 49 1.How much time did you spend outdoors in your youth? (Give examples) I woke up in the morning and didn’t come back until sun down. We lived on a Navy base so we didn’t have to worry about crime. 2.Of the four parenting styles which include authoritarian, democratic, permissive, and uninvolved which parenting styles did your parents use? (3.3) There are two different parenting styles, my mom was always was around so she did most of the disciplinarian parenting. My dad was the one that backed up my mom but he was also passive. He was deployed a lot so he was somewhat uninvolved until he came home. 3.From the people around you, and in your past, how many are/were driven mostly by the desire to achieve? (12.2) All the people around me want to achieve something and are driven by it. 4.How do you think emotions have shaped your decisions (give specific examples) and how they have affected your physical, behavioral, and cognitive abilities? I don’t let my emotions get in the way of anything. I feel that what happens is meant to happen and that’s that. | 6

7: 5.Of the four types of conflict situations which are Approach-Approach (you must choose between to attractive options), Avoidance-Avoidance (you must choose between two disagreeable options), Approach-Avoidance (both enjoyable and disagreeable consequences), and Double Approach-Avoidance (multiple options all with enjoyable and disagreeable consequences) which do you find more stressful? (15.1) (Avoidance-Avoidance) Because you would just be avoiding it and you would be dragging it on. 6.Out of these three coping skills for stress, which do you think is most useful?(expand on reasoning and personal preference)”Seeking social support” “Active coping”- take additional action to try and get rid of the problem, “Acceptance”- learn to live with the problem, and “Turning to rel Gods help.(15.3) (Active coping)- Because it’s easier to get rid of the problem then to live with it. The whole idea is to make your life better, there is always a way to solve something. 7.Why might it be easier to obey if you are shielded from the consequences of your action?(19.14) It’s because you can hide from the real problem “your actions”. | 7

8: 8.Denial is a coping skill in which you act as if a situation is not stressful. How have you used denial to deal with stress in your life? What were the short and long term outcomes?(15.3) Denial does nothing but cause more stress! It makes you have to remember what you are denying. 9.Do you feel like there is/was a large amount of pressure to conform in groups? Have you ever conformed to a group? How did you feel? (19.1) When I was younger I never really conformed to any group I was independent. When I was younger it wasn't as strong as it is today. 10.How and why has your attitude changed over time? Is the change beneficial?(20.1) Age is the main reason that my attitude has changed. When you go through life you become bitter, but I’m actively coping with it. | 8

9: My response:Chance:yob1993-Age:18 1.How much time did you spend outdoors in your youth? (Give examples) 1.In my youth is spent most of my time outside. The next door neighbor and I would play hide and seek. 2.Of the four parenting styles which include authoritarian, democratic, permissive, and uninvolved which parenting styles did your parents use? (3.3) 2.I would have to say that they were more authoritarian in there parenting. 3.From the people around you, and in your past, how many are/were driven mostly by the desire to achieve? (12.2) 3.As far as the adults and family around me I would say all of them are driven to succeed 4.How do you think emotions have shaped your decisions (give specific examples) and how they have affected your physical, behavioral, and cognitive abilities? (12.3) 4.As a teen I am aware of how powerful and influential emotions can be. So when I’m confronted with a situation that I am emotionally attached to I try to set aside the emotions involved. For the question I would say that because I try to avoid or deny my emotional involvement in a situation I have been shaped by emotions to use denial as a coping skill.

10: 5.Of the four types of conflict situations which are Approach-Approach (you must choose between to attractive options), Avoidance-Avoidance (you must choose between two disagreeable options), Approach-Avoidance (both enjoyable and disagreeable consequences), and Double Approach-Avoidance (multiple options all with enjoyable and disagreeable consequences) which do you find more stressful? (15.1) 5.Approach-Avoidance: I would choose this because you have to put considerable amount of attention and cognitive skills when you size up what you believe to be right and wrong and what society, family, and law believes to be right. 6.Out of these three coping skills for stress, which do you think is most useful?(expand on reasoning and personal preference)”Seeking social support” “Active coping”- take additional action to try and get rid of the problem, “Acceptance”- learn to live with the problem, and “Turning to God help".(15.3) 6.A combination of Active coping and Acceptance. I would choose these because i will have to just accept some things in life. I would use active coping to get rid of problems that I have control over.

11: 7.Why might it be easier to obey if you are shielded from the consequences of your action?(19.14) 7.Well, people alone buy themselves already try to blame their own actions on other people. So to have a free shot at doing something and being able to deny responsibility would be to many people a no-brainer. 8.Denial is a coping skill in which you act as if a situation is not stressful. How have you used denial to deal with stress in your life? What were the short and long term outcomes?(15.3) 8.I have and do use denial to separate myself from an emotional situation that becomes an issue. I think that if used properly denial can be effective in some situations. Usually using denial as I do helps the situation because emotions can cloud your judgment, the only problem is in the long term you will realize that you cant run from your emotions forever and you will either have to change your emotions or make a decision to deal with the problem that came up to maintain your emotions. 9.Do you feel like there is/was a large amount of pressure to conform in groups? Have you ever conformed to a group? How did you feel? (19.1) 9. I don't think i have ever really conformed to a group however i have worked and compromised with groups of people.

12: 10.How and why has your attitude changed over time? Is the change beneficial?(20.1) My attitude has become more negitive to protect myself.
