Questions


 

For the article "Illusion and well-being..." consider the following questions as you read it. You do NOT have to turn in your answers.

 

1. What was the "old" definition of good mental health as the authors described it at the beginning of the article?

 

2. What aspect of that old definition do the authors believe is no longer appropriate given some research on social cognition?

 

3. What are three of the illusions the authors identify that lead them to question that old definition?

 

4. So, what criteria do the authors believe should the "new" definition of good mental health include?
