(Answer to Q. 1)  ANS: C
FEEDBACK: Maslow's training in experimental psychology included work on dominance and sexual behavior in primates. It was a giant step from this type of research in the behaviorist framework to developing the ideas of humanistic psychologyfrom monkeys to self-actualization.

(Answer to Q. 2)  ANS: A
FEEDBACK: At Wisconsin, Maslow found the behavioral psychology of John B. Watson, leader of the revolution to make psychology a science of behavior. Like many people in the early 1930s, Maslow became enraptured, believing that behaviorism could solve all the world's problems.

(Answer to Q. 3)  ANS: A
FEEDBACK: When Maslow's early attempts at compensation to achieve recognition and acceptance as an athlete did not succeed, he turned to books. The library became the playground of his childhood and adolescence, and reading and education marked the road out of his ghetto of poverty and loneliness.

(Answer to Q. 4)  ANS: C
FEEDBACK: Maslow remembered his teenage years as marked by a huge inferiority complex. Convinced he was ugly because of his prominent nose, he also felt inferior because of his scrawny build.

(Answer to Q. 5)  ANS: D
FEEDBACK: The oldest of seven children, Maslow was born in 1908 in Brooklyn, New York. His parents were immigrants with little education and few prospects of rising above their desperately poor circumstances. His father was aloof and periodically abandoned his wife and children.

(Answer to Q. 6)  ANS: D
FEEDBACK: Maslow's theory does not derive from case histories of clinical patients but from research on creative, independent, self-sufficient, fulfilled adults. He concluded that each person is born with the same set of instinctive needs that enable us to grow, develop, and fulfill our potential.

(Answer to Q. 7)  ANS: B
FEEDBACK: Maslow objected to both behaviorism and psychoanalysis, particularly Freud's approach to personality. According to him, when psychologists study only abnormal or emotionally disturbed examples of humanity, they ignore all the positive human qualities such as happiness, contentment, and peace of mind.
