This worksheet is meant to accompany the film "500 Days of Summer" as a means of showing various concepts at the conclusion of the Motivation and Emotion unit in a Psychology or AP Psychology class. Students pick one of the main characters (Tom or Summer) and apply various psychological theories to describe/explain their motivation, emotion, and stress as represented in the film.
Concepts applied include need for achievement, need for intimacy, need for power, types of conflicts (approach-approach, approach-avoidance, avoidance-avoidance), extrinsic vs. intrinsic motivation, Theory X vs. Theory Y management styles, flow, Type A vs. Type B stress experience, and emotion theories (James-Lange, Cannon-Bard, and Singer-Schachter).
