Question

Fourteen-year-old Javier is quiet and reserved around his parents. When he is with his friends, however, he is boisterous and a bit obnoxious. How common is this pattern of behavior among children and adolescents?
a)  Fairly common; the way we behave in different environments reflects the differential impact of parents and peers in shaping behavior.
b)  Fairly uncommon; even young children show remarkable consistency in their behaviors across a variety of interaction partners.
c)  Fairly common; "multiple identities theory" suggests that core personality traits do little to shape behavior.
d)  Very uncommon; personality traits and behavioral tendencies are solidified early in life.
