Describe the theory you have chosen including its background, key theoretical concepts, central assumptions about human nature, unique features, and theory of behaviour change Background and key theoretical concepts The five factor model came about after Eysenk’s believed that the dimensions of personality found through factor analysis, are meaningless if they were not of a biological basis. In order to identify factors that were based on observations of many individuals, Eysenk set four criteria to detect a factor. Those were psychometric evidence, heritability, it must make sense and social relevance (Feist & Feist, 2009). Over 25 years of extensive work by McCrae and Costa, the Five Factor Model advanced as a theory. This theory now could predict and explain a phenomenon.
Investing in cross-cultural training will benefit SWU. Common benefits of this training include a better return on investment in employees. This result is seen through increased creativity, increased ability to compete is a global market, and increased employee satisfaction costs (DTUI, 2004).

This selective narrowing of social interaction maximizes positive emotional experiences and minimizes emotional risks as individuals become older. According to this theory, older adults systematically hone their social networks so that available social partners satisfy their emotional needs.

Knowledge-related goals aim at knowledge acquisition, career planning, the development of new social relationships and other endeavors that will pay off in the future.

The leadership questionnaire added some understanding of traits approach. My scores on the questionnaire made the description even more important and give me some insight to know that the things done today can make a positive change in the next generation.

However, it is possible that moderate level of anxiety may have positive effects such as increased concentration and logical thinking. It further motivates individuals to take actions and cope in order to reduce the feeling of distress and anxiety. Thus, moderate level of anxiety may be good in doing tasks efficiently. In conclusion, although there are many theories that could explain the generation of emotion, SPAARS model provides a more holistic explanation of generation, transition of emotions as well as emotion coupling. Both episodes involve the generation of negative emotions, which could be generated through the appraisal route like anger in both episodes and guilt in the first episode as well as through the associative route, involving more unconscious and automatic processing, for the emotion of anxiety in the second
