What is a misattribution of arousal? Provide an example.
Misattribution of arousal is the phenomenon that occurs when an individual mistakes the source of their arousal/emotions. Most often, persons unknowingly attach a positive emotion to a negative source. Example - A young man who is afraid of heights is made to cross an old rickety bridge that is several feet above the ground. Though terrified, he makes his way across the bridge all while shaking with fear. Once he successfully crosses the bridge, he is met by a beautiful young woman asking questions about his experience. Due to the arousal caused by his fear of heights, he becomes immediately attracted to the woman and feels as though she is the one for him. He mistakenly attributes the arousal he felt while crossing the bridge as an attraction to the young woman.

a) superior - towards the upper section of the body/above; towards the head.

Example - the muscles are superficial to our bones (our muscles are closer to our skin than our bones). c) lateral - further away from the midline of the body.
