A SOCIO-COGNITIVE VIEW OF ADULT DEVELOPMENT
The field of psychology always has been fascinating to me, which is why I really took my time to find which article I wanted to choose.

To be honest, when I found this article I was intimidated at first because it seemed packed full of information. I had to read this article a few times ...view middle of the document...
This article discusses the cognitive side of adult development and how it affects different adults at different ages. The author also provided information on how our past experiences can help shape how adults develop over time. This article describes how different cognitive perspectives can be useful to understanding how an adults’ thinking, acting, and learning contribute to their development. I chose this article because I thought that it was related to what we have discussed throughout this psychology class. Another reason I chose this article is because I believe the brain has more control over the way a person thinks, acts, responds, etc. than what we may know. If I were to write a research paper about this topic, I would definitely use this article as a reference. However, I could not use this as my main source but I could use some compelling facts from it. I would prefer to have research from many different points of view on the subject matter. There are many different scientific approaches to cognitive views of development, and it would be interesting to gather information from other scientists’ views about the topic. Overall, I know that having adequate and credible information is crucial when researching a paper, so I could not use only this source while writing my paper.
