Each group of students should identify a behavior pattern they find interesting (procrastination, narcissism, perfectionism, happiness, anxiety, laid-back, religious, rude, bully, highly motivated, etc…) and then prepare seven sentences or questions about the characteristic using each of the psychologies perspectives. Each sentence should make a statement or raise a question about the behavior pattern from a given perspective.
