To what extend do you agree or disagree with any part of Adler s theory and how does it relate to your

circumstance of birth order MARIUS - Experiences I have encountered and behaviors I have noticed and continue to notice with regard to the relationship between my brother and my parents are shaky and insincere. As far as I can remember he has always been withdrawn from the family and resentful to all those associated with family life in general. Not holding gatherings for discussions or time spent together as high priority, more to be scoffed at. He is protective of me and lives by set goals and rules with very confined habits. Stories of my early years being my parents favorite and heavily pampered in comparison to my brothers recollection of his childhood being harsh and demanding. Until the arrival of myself five years later he became shunned and regarded as second best.

KEVONN - I AGREE WITH THE FACT THAT YOUNG AND ONLY CHILDREN MAY BE PAMPERED AND SPOILED BECAUSE WITHIN RELATION TO ME AND MY BROTHER THERE ARE CERTIN THINGS T WOULD BE ABLE TO AQUIRE FASTER FROM MY PARENT THAN HIM MAINLY BECAUSE I'M THE LAST AND IN THERE EYES THE BABY KRISTA - I AGREE WITH ADLER'S THEORY ,THIS RELATES TO ME BECAUSE I AM THE SECOND TO LAST OF FIVE CHILDREN AN BECAUSE OF HAVE BROTHERS AN SISTERS TO TALK TO IT BECAME VERY EASY FOR ME TO MAKE FRIEND

SHURIE - I agree to Adler¶s theory to some extent. I am a first born yes I felt a little bit dethroned due to my sibling an I were ³spaced out´. When they arrived I was at an age where I was already given all the attention and love necessary at that time in my life so it was much easier to deal with.

Educational Achievements:
y Motivation to seek education ± 1) What motivates you to achieve an education? MARIUS My main motive for education is the desire to become self sufficient. A private practicing psychologist, to further my career. To prove to myself and my family in particular that I am not the dropout that I once was during my teens. My minor motive being material happiness.

However they have excelled through their careers by other means such as simply working harder at their jobs and climbing their respective corporate ladders. Many people would base their goals solely on the desires of a big house with a family. y Family History ± 1) How would you compare your educational achievements to your family¶s history of educational achievements? MARIUS .I am doing it for me to not get a better job or more money SHURIE. Myself on the other hand am very content with being at the middle class of society with happiness in stability and accomplishment of my goals. . and the feeling that I would experienced when I successfully achieve.

yes because I want to be the first psychologist in my family KRISTA Yes it have a lot .Well basically while with my immediate family their educational achievements were limited to primary and secondary I took the step further to tertiary KRISTA . I hold education very highly and my family constantly tells me that many people like themselves never had the opportunity to become well educated and so I push myself to make them and myself proud of my achievements. I try my best to not indulge in conflict .I am achieving more because my family members stopped at Secondary Education . 2) Has your family¶s educational achievements influenced your educational drive? MARIUS.KEVONN .Yes definitely because I have never favoured a life of working in hot sun and long underpaid hours for the sake of financial stability or happiness. I am always trying to achieve more than them SHURIE. KEVONN.Yes it has influenced my educational drive greatly.Would have to say I am very average compare to my family history of success SHURIE. Due to their achievements it makes me more determine to achieve more ³to raise the bar´ Aggression: y Ability to deal with conflict ± 1) How would you rate your ability to deal with conflict on a scale of one to ten? MARIUS -I would rate my ability to deal with conflict as a 4.

Equally so the overly unnecessary neediness of women. selfish.I am more comfortable with gender relations with females. their emotional and physical frailty. However I do prefer the company and social relations of women over men due to their natural patience. The natural aggressive. .. protective nurturing tendencies and their emotional communicative skills.No motivation I¶m not doing ³d ppl ting´ Questions getting personal boy« Jus kiddin. KEVVON The beautiful ladies I my country and also the humanistic feelings and impules I experience KRISTA I laugh when I saw this question. abusive. Possibly the influences of ³What not to do´ according to my parents and my past religious beliefs is what initiated my curiosity to become sexually active. well I would have to say curiosity SHURIE. Men just do because they are men and so are allowed that liberty and justification of their actions is a ridiculous ideal in my opinion and aggravates me. LOL y Beliefs on how this develops ± 1) Are you more comfortable with gender relations being male or female? MARIUS .SHURIE. their understanding habits. macho ( I need to prove I am a man) behaviour is sometimes exhausting and frustrating as well as the lack of communication skills whether it¶s emotionally or in an everyday action. 2) What motivates you to become sexually active? MARIUS .I am a FEMALE Yah!! And I love men.Curiosity I would say was my main factor in motivating me to become sexually active.

I am the type of person who would always analyze something set out by society and culture and try and figure out if I agree or disagree with it. I try not to be a social and religious sheep.FEMALE KRISTA I am more comfortable with gender relations being male SHURIE -I¶m more comfortable with relationships with males 2) Do you believe that society and culture have an effect on your relations with other genders? MARIUS . I simply believe that society and culture has set their thoughts out on a table containing the roles and relationships between genders and its up to the individual to choose whether or not he/she would eat from this ³table´ KEVONN yes because u are socialized into the norms and culture s of society from birth so it would have an effect on your relations with other genders KRISTA yes to some extend but can people choose they love an is not up to society to juge anyone SHURIE-No it does not have an effect on my relationship with other genders because I like to do what I want and nothing gets in the way of my achieving what I want once its morally right an legal.I believe it does but a very limited amount. .KEVONN .
