This is the report to the Psychology 100 class assignment. In the assignment, I handed out surveys about my personality and asked others to rate me; then I collected and analyzed the data. The results will show that how other people see me may or may not be the same as I see myself.
In this paper I plan to briefly review what happened during the counseling demonstration. Next, I will discuss two basic counseling skills that I believe I used well, and one that I struggled with. Finally, I will discuss the next steps I will take in order to improve my counseling skills.
I was inspired by the content this week so much so that I incorporated digital storytelling into the UNIV 100 course I am teaching. One of the requirements for the course is to attend four outside events and write a one-page paper about each experience. The third paper is due within two weeks, and students have tended to dread the activity, waiting until the last minute to decide on the event and submit the paper.
My personal character can be described as driven, analytical, and honest. The driven nature that I have pushes me to finish any task no matter what challenges I come in contact with. Moreover, I motivate those around me to finish and reach their goals so that not only I succeed, they will too. The mindset that I have is analytical, which allows me to view things in very reasonable perspectives. My analytical mindset and honesty will help me succeed not only in college but in life too; when I need to make a serious decision that can’t have any emotional input into it I will be able to accomplish
I’m ideally pessimistic, therefore I’m not easily influenced. Receiving a large amount of honor, uniquely I come off as formidable. I’m only 17 moreover, I’m just now starting to find myself. I feel as if without comfort I would perform surpassingly, accordingly I’m precisely individualistic. Throughout my childhood I’ve had various coaches not only in sports, likewise for life. Being adolescents, we imagine our parent to become our role model, opposingly I’m just now finding mine.
One's self-concept affects one's perception, attitude and behavior, which can be demonstrated during the process of interpersonal communication. Aspects of one's life influence their self-concept, which not only affect how people perceive them but how they perceive themselves. Such things are gender, motivational level and psychological type. It is widely
The clocks at LIH appeared to be online and communicating to the WDM. I began my check to start data collection that is when I realized the clocks are not operating normally. I tried to reboot, initialize, and test both clocks though it appeared the clocks were in the process of successfully completing the task, it failed. Within the last two hours, I managed to get both clocks to complete a data collection successfully. I contacted Kari, LIH Coordination Center and request to have a TSO swipe their badge on both clocks located at the Checkpoint and Break Room, respectively.
did not fare as well as I expected on my portfolio. I enjoyed this class immensely too, including my professor, Dr. Susan DeLuke. I learned a great deal during the course as well as after the course from Dr. DeLuke, with the multiple homework assignments, and papers, and achieved very good grades under her guidance. However, applying it to the portfolio was challenging. It was a great deal to absorb, retain and get accurate in a short amount of time and I have a tendency to let tasks likes these overwhelm me. I know I could have performed better on my portfolio now. I went from an A in this class to a C+ because of my final portfolio. I thought I did well on it, and I did not. It was very disappointing results for both the student and Professor
As I completed finding the character traits, I discovered how different I act outwardly than I do in my own head. Inside, I am a nervous wreck scared that I will say the wrong thing and hurt someone’s feelings. Additionally, I am reliable whenever I tell someone I will be there for them no matter what (whether I like that person or not), I will do everything in my power to help you. Finally, I feel as if in my own head I am an old woman. I am more mature than any teenager that I have met in this school; I am bound and determined to get my work done even if it means no breaks. When my friends come to me looking for advice, I give them the most sensible solution, but they don’t want to do it because, “That’s not what I wanted you to say,” Then
Self-concept is defined as a “subjective description of who you think you are” (Beebe, Beebe, Redmond, & Salem-Wiseman, 2014, p. 28). A few positive ways in which I would describe my self-concept to be are terms such as someone who’s athletic, caring, compassionate, dedicated, disciplined, empathetic, friendly, hardworking, humorous, a perfectionist, reliable, and trusting. As much as I wish I could define my self-concept regarding positive traits only, a few negative traits that define my self-concept include being insecure, shy, fear of failure and rejection, unable to take criticism without it being considered personal, being argumentative at times, being self-deprecating and being overly competitive. I believe the perceptions I have about myself significantly impact how I communicate with others, both positively and negatively. For example, because I consider myself shy, I know I am less expressive and verbal when interacting with others, which could be an issue when it comes to expressing essential opinions and honesty. I also defined myself as being insecure, which also affects communication with others. The reason why this is a concern when communicating with others is that rather than focusing on the conversation, instead, I am concentrating continuously on wondering what the other person is thinking about me as an individual and what judgments they are making at this very moment.
I am now approaching the conclusion of my college career and starting to adjust to work life. This is a period of self-reflection and an attempt to put everything I learned into perspective. During this period of my life, I have been constantly thinking and contemplating my future. I feel very anxious yet nervous during this time while I am adjusting to this new stage of my life. When I was in High school my life was very structured, because I could be very dependent on peoples help and I obviously still lived with my family. When I went to college, I had to break away from that feeling of dependency and start the adjusting to adulthood. In college there was more responsibility and I started to become more independent. This was a crucial step in my life but choosing a career is going to be an even bigger step. It is a bigger step because; I have to start structuring my career goals and family goal for the future. At this moment all I can think about is my career, and how I can I keep improving myself for work life.
I am a pretty well rounded individual although not perfect by any means. Throughout my life, I have always tried my best to be friendly to everyone and optimistic in all situations. I don’t think anyone would ever describe me as a critical or aggressive person. I’ve always been willing to give advice and be encouraging to anyone that I felt needed it. I believe that I am a fairly conscientious person in that I have always been careful and diligent when it comes to work and other life choices. I’ve always been organized and usually don’t act on pure impulse alone. I’ve never been described as traditional or conventional. I’ve always been open to new experiences and relish every opportunity that can make me a more well-rounded person. People would also describe me as a fairly intelligent individual with a vivid imagination. My weaknesses, however, would have to include my ability to develop people and team process. I’ve always been encouraging, but I can improve upon my ability to develop people by providing feedback to individuals on their performances and recognizing individual contributions when I am part of a team.
The person that I talked about for this paper was my grandfather, Richard Davidson. I wanted to talk to him because I didn’t know as much about his past and knew that he has strong opinions about the world and how it has changed. I also wanted to talk to him because I was interested in hearing how the world has changed from one of my older family members that grew up in the United States specifically as I was interested in seeing how much I could relate myself to what we talked about. There was also a perfect opportunity for me to talk to him for around an hour over thanksgiving break in person instead of over the phone. The main thing that we talked about was how he grew up going through World War II, and how much the world changed
Self! “Self is an ever changing system of perspectives that are formed and sustained in communication with others and ourselves.” (p.174) As I typed in “self” in the Google search engine what stood out to me the most was a quote by Buddha that goes, “you, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe deserves your love and affection.” On the first day you are born you, yourself is a individual who is living life to obtain a personal identity with no clue to who or what you may transpire to be. In the Communication Mosaics the 8th edition, it emphasizes the self as being dynamic, and concludes that every individual evolves and change throughout their lifetime. Through my studies of communication I have fondly realized how significant
Out of all of the topics that we went over in over the course of the Sister to Sister class, the one that resonated with and still resonates with me the most would have to be the theme of self. This is simply because you cannot even begin to form a sense of community or delve into higher education successfully without a keen awareness of self. This phenomenon is stated beautifully with, “an ongoing commitment to developing the self is paramount to the establishment of an identity that is centered and grounded” (King, T. C., & Ferguson, S. A 2). The ongoing aspects of this are stressed because as people, we are continuously changing, meaning that we need to be constantly in tune with our self and making sure that we are going about life in
