John Adams once said, “Thanks be to God that he gave me stubbornness when I know I am right”. John Adams, like myself was introverted, intellectual, thinking, and judging, or an INTJ on the Myers Briggs personality test. Like all INTJs, Adams was stubborn and flouted the ideas of others
Introduction How can a teenager with a “Peace-sign” on the back pocket of her blue jeans leading a “Sit-in” be described now as Responsible, Analytical, and Faith-filled? Yes, that is me! In this paper, I will explain these three main strengths that I believe to be true about myself. I utilized the Strengths Finder 2.0 and the Richard-step for my strength assessment (Rath, 2007 & "Richard-step: Enrich Yourself & Step Up Your Career – Tests, Tools, & Personal Guidance," 2015).

1) I want to take AP Psychology because the subject is very intriguing. For the past few summers, my parents force to learn something over the vacation of my own choosing, every Summer I would learn something psychology related and I would genuinely enjoy learning about the topic. I started off with the gripping Stanford prison experiment. Even though I was at a young age, learning this would peak my interest, next summer I would learn about B.F. skinner and his rats, then to pavlov and his dogs, and then lastly during the 8th grade summer about to become a Freshman, I learned about “Baby Albert” positive reinforcement, and negative punishment, how the “flight or flight” reaction occurred and if a paper bag really helps.

Who are you? Many fortune cookies, horoscopes, and other whimsical devices attempt to tell us our personalities, or our combination of traits and behaviors that make up who we are. However, psychologists today deviate from those unsubstantiated methods and have concocted various personality tests that give us a
The principles and theories of Social Psychology are important and useful in assessing behaviors in situations. These social psychological principles and their applications can be seen in fictional films which can also be attributed to everyday life. One such film that holds certain social psychological perspectives is Will Gluck’s 2010 production of Easy A. A film about high school student Olive Penderghast and how a sudden change in popularity and financial status, after an unintentional rumor about how she supposedly lost her virginity to a college guy spread through the entire her school. The film draws on the behavioral connections of pronounced hussy Olive Penderghast and her English class’s assigned reading of The Scarlet Letter.
Chemical Senses Paper It’s interesting to find out that the things we eat and drink are more so identified by our senses of sight and smell and not just taste. This is because food can be identified by just sight alone, and same thing goes for smell as well! Our brains actually view taste as a combination of the senses smell and touch at the same time. So really all sensory information is gathered from the actual substance we a consuming. The way we get this information through sent is located in the back of our mouths and called the “retronasal olfaction. The way we gather this similar same information through smell is located in the nose and called the “orthonasal olfaction”. These methods both influence the perception of flavor, so
It is noted that risk taking personality traits and neuroticism have been associated with poor health, and traits such as conscientiousness have not. Lifestyle choices outlined in the health behaviour model are said to promote poor health, alternative behaviours do not. Friedman & Rosenham (1974) help educate how type A personalities are at risk, similarly to type C's. Finally, stress reponse models emphasise the connection between personality and physical health; however, the predispositional model enhances that personality might not be influential on physical health. Watson & Pennebaker (1989) also further this theory, by outlining limitations of personality research. Therefore, this essay has outlined the aspects of personality and responses to stress, and by using relevant theory and research, it has concluded that personality influences physical health. It has also provided improvements for research that may produce more reliable theory. However, it has been established that there are many cause and effect issues with research. Additionally, research often concludes with personality resulting in high stress levels, not physical illness; it is assumed that if an individual is stressed, they become vunerable to related illness. It may be appropriate that studies conclude with more specific illnesses. Alternatively, it might be appropriate for research to focus on the vunerability of individuals developing stress related illness, due to their personality, instead of just stress
The personality assessment inventory tests provide results on my individual personality, values, motivation, decision making, communication, team skills, conflict skills, organizational structure preference, and stress. These results are broken down briefly in three parts and do not include any personal speculation or analysis as to their meaning. The application of these results are further applied and explains how the results noted from the tests and in the first step will make me a better employee, co-worker, and manager within my organization. These tests mentioned above are applied in conjunction with particular examples on how I can achieve becoming a better employee, co-worker, and manager. An explanation of how my personality and experiences were affected by the Holy Spirit is also discussed. Particularly, how potential weaknesses have become strengths with the guidance of the Lord.
1. “We are influenced by our own internal forces, forces of which we are unaware, have feelings towards, or urges we do not quite understand “(Freidman, 2012, p. 17). This is the struggle that personality psychology tries to understand, how and to what extent the unconscious forces plays a role in
