Living in such multicultural country as the USA, adds on many dimensions to our daily lives in contrast with ethnocentrism. These changes may lead to many advantages and disadvantages in how we interact with each other. One of the advantages that ethnocentrism brings is that it is unlikely to experience internal conflicts within the same culture group. Given that the group consistently believes in a particular way of doing things, they follow them and less opposition are likely to develop. For example communities that greatly value their traditions are unlikely to accept practices that are abolished by the values of other cultures.
OUTLINE Paragraph 1: INTRO Paragraph 2: Suffering from a specific phobia does not affect your life a. You are not exposed to the cause of the fear frequently b. A phobia does not interfere with the achievements of goals Paragraph 3: Rejecting treatment to avoid changing what you consider a normal life c. You experience a sense of insecurity d. It implies to make an effort to reorganize your life Paragraph 4: CA: Although there are certain phobias that will not prevent you from leading a full active life, it is always advantageous to overcome that unfounded fear e. If left untreated a phobia may worsen thus creating other physical symptoms f. If left untreated a phobia may trigger social and professional obstacles Paragraph 5: CONCLUSION Living along with my phobia Surely you have heard about the benefits of overcoming your fears or the harmful effects that hinder a person from leading a normal life. However, you have rejected to undergo any treatment because you have managed to live an active life fulfilling your goals and establishing different kinds of relationships, even when your close friends and relatives keep on suggesting that you must defeat your fear. It is my contention that there is nothing wrong with refusing to undergo treatment if you consider that your phobia does not affect your daily routine or that the treatment may have harmful consequences.
It’s also keeping us form thinking thoroughly we sometimes can find it easier to just maybe “copy and paste” rather than using our brains and actually trying to think for at least once in our life. It’s true that all of this helping us and plays a huge part in our generation but its keeping most people from actually thinking and or imagining because it just seems easier to look it up on our devices. How is it that solitude is not solitude and poverty not poverty nor weakness really weakness? All these things that may appear may not be as bad as you might claim them to be because it all just depends in what perspective you have at that particular “problem” and at life. There may be some people that are in poverty and they don’t see it bad because they maybe feel good because they’ve maybe accomplished what their goal was in life.
They regularly do sports, however, none of them realizes the benefits and importance of sports. In fact, vice versa, some people want to be fit and attractive, look smart. Unfortunately, these people can’t consider other benefits of sports. In my opinion, there are several benefits of sports that people often do not consider: sports are required to be healthy people, are needed for enjoyment, and are great market for countries’ economies. The first advantage of sports for people is that they help people be healthy, and be fit.
While this model has proven to be applicable during periods of technological advancements, McCrimmon (2005) calls for a model that is less focused on managerial activities and instead more focused on the individual without management responsibilities. In this way, he proposes a new model of leadership called thought leadership. Thought leadership is the innovation of ideas and is essential for success. Thought leaders do not have to be credible, just influential so others can support their ideas. The management of people and the distribution of task are not needed in this form of leadership.
Effectiveness on the other hand, is getting things done. The end goal must be met and so different factors that may change in the future must be taken into consideration. Being effective encourages innovation and makes one more adaptable to the changing environment. The negative side to only focusing on being effective or producing the end goal is that you may be engaging in whatever means possible without thinking about the costs and other factors that may have undesirable effects in the long run. For example, the over-working of employees with minimal added benefits and pay would lead to unproductive, tired employees which would then lead to lesser output and unhappy employees.
It involves the transformation of ideas into something useful. Innovation is just not limited to creative people and organizations, but also involves the availability of technological and scientific talent. Technology and innovation are synergistic. Technology has definitely changed our lives and for the better. We use it without even thinking about it because it is second nature to us, as it has become a part of how we go about everyday life.
Setting a goal such as changing the world is not easy; many people may criticize me or let me down. Others may tell me that what I want is not plausible, but as an optimistic person I believe that there’s nothing impossible in this untamed world as long as the person is willing to achieve his goal. Person may commit mistake and as humans we can’t change the fact that we are not perfect but as rational people we can do something to improve it and avoid ourselves in doing unnecessary things. We can do something to
The MBTI introverted personality type says that introvert type does not get energy from outside. It means an introverted person develops good energy from themselves. Nowadays, many people wish to become a good leader, but many have the preconception that an extroverted personality is required to become good leaders. Moreover they believe introverts have disadvantages in our social activities. However, I believe this misconception distorts the truth because an introverted personality actually qualifies for leadership in our current society.
By further explanation of the halo/horns effect, the author gains some persuasion but yet the illustration and examples given do not apply to all situations. The author’s point of view is not persuasive due to overgeneralization. Even though attractive people may possibly leave a good first impression to others, it would not lead them further without good inner personalities. Especially when it comes to friends and lovers, the primary consideration for most people would be common interests, honesty, and kindness instead of a good appearance. Furthermore, Katz’s notion that beautiful people can “cash a check with far less hassle than a plain Jane or John” is very misleading since professionals such as educators, bank clerks are often trained with strict disciplines of treating every person equally with same respect and patience.
