Ok I have to respond to something for my Psych class by either giving an example of nature vs. nurture (which I don't want to do because most of the class responded with that and I don't want to dish out that kind of personal information to everyone), or Age Graded, History Graded, and Non-normative events. We were given the examples of getting a drivers license at 16 (age graded event), 9/11 (history graded), and losing a child (non-normative).
My question is about history graded because my textbook also lists things like technological advances as "history graded" events. I already know what I'm listing for age graded and non-normative, but I was wondering if Blu-ray, smart phones, Kindle, and plasma TVs would also be considered "history graded" since it's something that has come about during my lifetime.
Sorry this was kind of long and a little dumb, but like I said, my brain isn't functioning lol. Thanks!
