2. Two theorists important in the area of cognitive development are Jean Piaget & Lev Vygotsky.
3. Social development refers to the changes in our ability to interact with others as we age.
4. Our primary caregiver provides us with our earliest social cues.
5. The stages of prenatal development.


Part II: PERSONALITY
1. Personality refers to patterns of behavior that remain constant across situations.
2. There are different approaches to personality, including psychoanalytic, trait, humanistic, and learning theories.
3. Sigmund Freud is responsible for the psychoanalytic approach, which states that we are controlled by unconscious conflicts. 
4. Trait theorists argue that our personality is simply a collection of traits.
