Jordan Brooks Mr. Autry English II January 29, 2011 Supreme Individualist Henry David Thoreau declares himself a supreme individualist. He is the greatest of his time in that regard. B.F. Skinner, a psychologist, agrees with Thoreau about the necessity to be an individual, but he claims community is ultimately more important. Being an individual can be rather contradictory, meaning it is both harmless and harmful at the same time. Today many individualists use Thoreau's ideas and have perfected them.
Searchlight intelligence involves observing lots of different things or aspects of something; this type of intelligence is commonly found in politicians. Laser-like intelligence is fully mastering a discipline in lots of detail. This theory is more ethical than the psychometric approach as in avoids labelling people like traditional IQ tests do. Outline and evaluate the role of genetic factors in intelligence tests performance Galton suggested that intelligence was genetic, and based his theory on
Myers-Briggs Assessment Review Gabrielle Brown PSCY101_D16 Professor Peters May 7, 2010 Myers-Briggs Assessment Review After taking the Myers-Briggs assessment, I learned that I have a personality type INTJ (Introverted Intuitive Thinking Judging). The details of my results showed that I am moderately expressed introvert, slightly expressed intuitive personality, slightly expressed thinking personality, and distinctively expressed judging personality. At first glance I was confused as to what this meant, but after reading the information provided in the links at the end of the assessment I was in awe of how accurate the assessment really was. Even with the results seeming correct I could not help but question the fact that it could be wrong or that it might need improvement. I felt that the assessment was correcting in saying that I was an INTJ personality type based on the links that were provided after answering the yes and no questions.
“The Pursuit of Happiness” suggests what we imagine occurrences and possessions that we believe would make us happy or unhappy. Then we even take that a step further by actually believing we fully realize what effect it would have on us and how we would react. The reality with this is, most of the time our beliefs are not even remotely close to what truly brings us genuine joy or despair. The same remains true in what feelings or reactions one would have with each situation. The article “Positive Psychology: The Science of Happiness”, on the other hand, states that
I can attest to this definition and characteristics of myself. I tend to find myself very direct that I had to learn how to put a filter before I speak bluntly. When seeking employment I find myself seeking leadership and management positions. Many times I find being overly confident in certain situations and wanting to take control of the situation. When working in a team setting I find myself wanting to start ahead of everyone else and leading the group to obtain the best results.
Personality Theory: Neurosis Brittany Nelson HHS 310 Instructor Smith There are many different theories involving personality among people in our society. These different personalities can occur through different people because not everybody is the same. In my case, I chose the Neurotic theory because this theory relates to my personality for the most part. Neurotic theories have been brought from the theorist Karen Horney. Karen Horney had come up with the best theory for Neurosis and it relates to me because I can agree with the needs that it calls for an individual.
That is to say, being smart is not equal to having and using only one type of intelligence, but having all types of intelligences which include practical, social and emotional intelligences as well as using them effectively. On the other hand, the definition of human intelligence may not be a simple one as it cannot be confined to one’s responses to numerical and verbal tasks in IQ tests. Human intelligence is beyond IQ tests as Phil Yam points out. Human intelligence is the combination of various skills and abilities that would work even in real-life conditions. People’s life success and practical knowledge are also determining factors while measuring their intelligence because they need to possess survival skills when they encounter stressful and challenging situations.
Pink is successful to point out empathy is an innate ability of every single person, “a natural inclination for the next essential aptitude” (159). The problem here is even though everyone has empathy. It is hard to learn how to use it and control it. Empathy enables collaboration, reflection, and the adjustment of our personal behavior. In business, empathy is the key to success.
Wisdom is having knowledge and knowing how to share it with everyone else. Intelligent is just a concept, trying to make something abstract measurable. Intelligence is to growth as wisdom is to a infinite never-changing knowledge of the essence of truth. Intelligence is the effective
We live in a world that seems to worship its own kind if greatness. Greatness cannot be achieved so easily. Greatness is not made to measure order. To achieve greatness, a lot of perspiration and hard work is needed. We all have a genius inside of us and we need to use it to become great.
