Talcott parsons provided one bridge between psychology and sociology by introducing what concept as a variable in frustration-aggression theory?


I think there is still inequality in the United States, but not because the reasons that mainstream media often give.
For example, income equality between Caucasian people and minorities. The Democratic party often tell us that it’s because the Caucasian people actively opressed the minorities so they can’t be successful.
But the fact is, Minorities in United States are not only African American and the latino/as but also the asian.
The asian currently held the highest average income among all races in United States. If one minority can do it while the other can’t , the reason point to the tradition/way of living, not the race itself

The goals of psychology are to a. develop effective methods of psychotherapy and cure mental illness. b. describe, understand, predict, and control behavior. c. research, infer, summarize, and publish. d. compare, analyze, and control human behavior.


Answer:

The answer is C. In order to carefully control conditions and confirm or disconfirm a hypothesis about the causes of behavior, one must perform an experiment.

Explanation:

Experimental research allows the researcher to control all the variables in order to create the conditions that can confirm or disconfirm a hypothesis. This method aimes to establish a relation of causality between two variables, which means that one variable is generated and determined by the other; this is posible because all of the other variables that can influence it have been controlled.

When a researcher conducts a survey or engages in naturalistic observation, he can’t control the variables, therefore, he can only establish a correlation between two variables, but not of causality.
