This is the first in a series of seven lectures by Dr. Albert E. Ross, PhD, a psychologist. In this talk, he discusses the American male's invulnerability to his feelings and the infantile or 14 year-old model of feeling and behavior we use as a model. He compares the ways of thinking of the adolescent, the chronological adult who thinks like an adolescent, and the adult who thinks like an adult with respect to self-confidence and sexuality, King of the Hill phenomenon, role differences, need for models, responsibility, and hedonism. Produced by Roy E. Tuckman. Outro on tape indicates that tapes can be purchased from UCLA Extension. The lecture refers to previous lecture materials, which were not recorded. Contains sensitive language.
