Question:

Explain Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs and how each section interconnects.

Kira C.
Answer:

Maslow created a pyramid that represents an individuals humans' needs and their hierarchical status. These sections include, from bottom to top, physiological, safety, love and belonging, esteem, and self-actualization. They interrelate with the help of motivation and explains that, as these needs are met, motivation decreases and that they are typically met in a certain order. To be able to fulfill the human need of safety, the individual must first achieve physiological safety or the basic requirements for human survival, such as food, shelter, clothing, etc. Once those needs are fulfilled, the individual can then continue in their motivation to achieve safety needs, such as emotional and financial security. Moving to the next section, an individual can go on to fulfill their need of belongingness that includes friendship, trust, and acceptance. Esteem relates to both themselves and how they relate to others, such as dignity and independence as well as status and prestige. Finally, self-actualization refers to the ability to realize one's full potential and seek growth. It is often described as the desire to accomplish everything that individual can and is not possible without having first fulfilled the previous needs.

Question:

How important are standardized tests in college applications?

Kira C.
Answer:

The higher education admissions system, especially since COVID-19, has seen a reduction in priority when it comes to standardized testing. Some colleges aren't even requiring a submission of test scores. As such, there is an increased focus on an individual's personal statement and transferable skills over academic achievement and standardized testing proficiency.

Question:

Explain the symbolism represented in The Masque of the Red Death.

Kira C.
Answer:

The poem itself is an overarching symbol of the progression of life. The seven color-coded rooms each represent a stage of life, starting with birth and ending with death itself. Prospero chases a stranger through these rooms as if rushing through life and is ultimately faced with the consequences of such. There is also the clock present throughout the story representing that time is running out for the main character and that their life is fleeting. Finally, the color red is prominent in this story as a symbol for passion and blood used to sustain life, specifically because the plague this story is centered around is the Red Death that makes the pores of the inflicted individuals bleed.
