Some of the things that go into unemployment are depression, state of anxiety, trait anxiety, subjective fluctuating happiness, life satisfaction, self-esteem, and self-efficacy. Once reading the article and know that these take part in unemployment made sense. Each has to do with different parts of someone’s life that could help explain why they are unemployed or why they have been unemployed for so long. With what I have learned from this forum I will use the information about self-efficacy I will try to use it in my everyday life to improve my life in situations. Also, when it comes to courage I will take what I have learned and try to apply it to my everyday life.
Antwone Fisher Personality Matrix: Who Will Cry for the Little Boy? Sharon L. Moses March 7, 2010 Capella University COUN5214 – Theories of Personality Dr. Sola M.

Shaneika Newell Exercise 15.1: Task and People Orientations This exercise was to measure whether I’m task oriented or people oriented when it comes to leadership. After I completed the exercise, I scored 8 in the concern for task and 9 in the concern for people. Overall, the results show that I’m slightly people oriented by one point. I do agree with the results because I have worked in groups where we didn’t always get along and I believe that in order for any group to be successful, the members must have respect for each other’s opinions, view points, and each other’s individual work ethic. Exercise 15.2: Leadership Style Analysis In this exercise, there are three cases that require a leadership diagnosis using the Vroon-Jago model.

Summary:Paul Krugman's “Degrees and Dollars” In his article “Degrees and Dollars” Paul Krugman states that education is not key to economic success. Technology keeps growing everyday and Paul shows that this technology is harming highly educated jobs. He also is showing that middle class jobs are becoming less popular while low wage jobs seem to be increasing. Krugman will also explain his thoughts on how to fix the economy as a whole through bring the society together as a whole. In his first section Paul says that “It is universally acknowledged that education is the key to economic success.” He is actually just stating that to make a generalization of most of the worlds thoughts on education and job success, because right after he makes that statement he goes on to say that “what everyone knows is wrong.” Krugman says that the growing technology and use of software is extremely cheaper than the “old fashioned” way of doing things.

Running Head: PSYCHOANALYTICAL PERSONALITY ASSESSMENT Psychoanalytical Personality Assessment Upon the completion of the Jungian assessment test, I have discovered that my Jungian type is ISTJ. ISTJ is the acronym used in the Myers-Briggs publication and stands for Introversion, Sensing, Thinking, and Judgment. My Jungian assessment test results presented a 44% average liking of Introversion over Extraversion, a 25% average liking of Sensing over Intuition, a 1% marginal or no liking of Thinking over Feeling, and a 44% average liking of Judging over Perceiving. Introversion Introverts are motivated and stimulated when they are occupied with the thoughts, recollections, reactions, and images which are an element of their internal world. Introverts normally prefer spending time or reserved activities with one or two people with whom they sense a likeness and they often generate a laid-back effect on those around them.
A reflective practice model would enable learners and novices within a discipline to compare their own practices with those of experienced practitioners, thus leading to development and improvement. Although given currency by Schon (1983) and Kolb (1984), reflective practice has been advocated by educationists such as Dewey (1909) and Lewin (1952) and can be traced back to the Socratic method of enquiry - in which questioning and exploration of the implications of another's viewpoint are employed to enlighten the enquirer. Moon (1999) defines reflective practice as "a set of abilities and skills, to indicate the taking of a critical stance, an orientation to problem solving or state of mind." In essence, it is a readiness to constantly evaluate and review your practice in the light of new learning (which may arise from within the context of your professional practice). A reflection in a mirror is an exact replica of what is in front of it.
My Personality Type Assessment CMGT/530 IT Organizational Behavior University of Phoenix My Personality Type Assessment To assess my personality type, I chose the personality type assessment located at www.humanmetrics.com. Carl G. Jung theorized that human consciousness is characterized by the individual’s preference to general attitude; extraversion vs. introversion and the mental functions; sensing vs. intuition and thinking vs. feeling (Personality Types Explained, 2007-2013). In addition to Jung’s three dichotomies, “one more preference enters into the identification of type—the choice between the perceptive attitude and the judging attitude” (Meyers & Meyers, 1995, "Chapter 1 - An Orderly Reason for Personality Differences"). The personality type assessment at the “Human Metrics” website is composed of 72 questions with “yes” or “no” answers. The answers are weighted with a percentage of preference to a characteristic in each of the four pairs of dichotomies and assigned a letter that corresponds; Extraverted = E, Introverted = I, Sensing = S, Intuition = N, Thinking = T, Feeling = F, Judging = J, and Perceiving = P. The result is one of 16 possible four letter acronyms representing the individual’s personality type.
