I’m studying and need help with a Psychology question to help me learn.
In this course on Human Sexuality, we are interested in the application of the information presented to students’ attitudes, beliefs, values, identity, and behavior.
In asking you to describe the various influences on your personal sexual identity, a variety of challenges and obstacles may arise. First may be the confusion that results from the barrage of conflicting messages and their interpretations. Second are the uncomfortable and sometimes painful feelings that may result from articulating and confronting certain experiences, perhaps for the first time. Third is the discomfort that occurs from revealing such personal issues to a stranger, that is, the instructor, for the purposes of receiving a grade. And fourth is the issue of how to proceed with your life once this information has been revealed. I hope that doing this exercise will give you a chance to clarify your feelings and reduce the confusion and discomfort that may be associated with self-exploration. The support and encouragement of your instructor and close friends as well as the Counseling and Wellness Center may also be helpful if you find that responding to this assignment unleashes feelings that are difficult for you to deal with. Above all, you have the right to decide what to include and what to keep private.
In spite of these issues, I have found that this assignment is one the most valuable experiences of the semester. Students who fully participate in this paper report insights that they say would not otherwise have occurred. Though many have discovered that it is no easy task to break the patterns and deeply ingrained beliefs that they have held since childhood, this exercise encourages you to consciously work toward improving them.
In no less than 2000 words, you are to describe various influences on your sexual and gender identity. Who are you as a sexual being? How do you feel regarding your gender? Your sexual orientation? Your sexual behaviors and partners?
The following are areas that you might want to consider. Take at least 5 of them and discuss how they have impacted you.
A.) Religious upbringing/Spirituality
B.) School/Educational experiences
C.) Peers or Friends
D.) Media: Television, Internet, Print material, Social Media, Movies
E.) Parents and Family
F.) Cultural or Ethnic Background
G.) Experiences in sexual relationships and intimacy
H.) Personal History: Loss, Trauma, Success, Triumph
I.) Personal Psychological Makeup: Trust, Control, Self-Esteem, Personality
J.) Any other area you find important
Your paper should include your age (23), relationship status (Single), family and birth order (7 siblings – I am the one before the youngest), and some history (two parents family – middle-class – lmk if you needed any other info). The conclusion should summarize key positive and negative experiences and possible constructive ways you can shape a positive sexual and gender identity. Your title should be creative and reflect a key issue or challenge for you. No references are needed, just your own reflection.
