comparing and contrasting biological and behaviorist theories

Submit a 2- to 3-page paper that includes the following points:

  • Compare and contrast biological and behaviorist theories by explaining the strengths and limitations of each theory.
  • Apply the behaviorist theory in explaining the differences in the siblings Jane and John.
  • Apply the biological theory in explaining the differences in the siblings Jane and John.
  • Explain which approach is most effective for understanding the differences between Jane and John, and defend your reasoning.
  • Consider these descriptions of Jane and John. Keep in mind they are fraternal twins. Although their age is not given, from their activities they are teens in high school.
    • Jane is very outgoing. She enjoys large gatherings of friends, participates in many extracurricular activities in school, and is a cheerleader and captain of her volleyball team. She loves to travel, meet new people, and experience different cultures.
    • John is a quiet and studious young man. He loves to read and to listen to classical music. He has a small, intimate circle of friends who share the same interests. He is captain of his school’s chess team, and his idea of the perfect sporting event is a chess competition. He is not interested in travel—unless he is going to a chess competition.
