...This type reaction of coping is more stressor and it tends to be used by the people with high score on the big fire personality super factor conscientiousness Watson & Hubbar, 1996. Emotion-oriented / emotion-focused coping In contrast, emotion coping strategies involves the individual’s attempts to regulate emotional responses to, and decrease the effects of a stressful situation Edwards, 1999. This coping strategy can change a person’s emotional response to the stressor. This type of coping usually decreases arousal. People are likely to adopt emotion-focused coping itself and so they must alter their perception of, or responses to, the stressors. Studies with male participants have indicated that those perceiving less control over events are less likely to use problem-focused strategies involving direct actions and more likely to use emotion-focused strategies such as distraction and emotion support David&Sals, 1999. If he doesn’t think anything he does at work ultimately affects whether he gets did off, he is less likely to use active coping strategies. Another type of emotion-focused is venting. Penne baker, 1989 asked a group of college students to write for twenty (20) minutes, a day of for four (4) consecutive days. They were told their writing samples would remain confidential.

...Factors Affecting College Students’ Motivation A thesis submitted in partial fulfilment of requirements for the College of Arts and Sciences Major in Psychology By Imelda Tolentino Josan Alejandra Valle Charize Faith Laciste Mirriam Calimlim Arellano University-Pasig September, 2013 Chapter I Introduction Studying is said to be the primary key to achieve academic excellence, but what factors really driven students to study? Others might say that fears motivate students while others might claim that you should give them tough classes and they will pull through. Some teaching faculty would say that students are motivated because of their personal goals in life. Yes, you could ask everyone but they would just answer in different opinions. The disagreement about the sources of student motivation makes the question of academic motivation sound a great deal like that of workplace motivation. Management theory abounds with contradictory theories about what makes employees work. Maslow (1968) argued that needs drive behaviour, and that workplace (and, presumably, academic) motivation is determined by the level of the needs hierarchy at which the individual is operating. McClelland (1966) claimed instead that motivation is driven by an innate need to achieve, and Herzberg (1959) proposed that the content of the jobs themselves was the source of the elusive employee motivation....

They are: Economic Factors * Cost of certain vacations can act as a travel barrier * Economic prosperity can encourage people to take more trips * Good economic time, people have more discretionary income – money left over after paying taxes & basic living expenses Technological Factors * Methods of transport have become faster & more fuel efficient = more cost efficient – cheaper for people to travel * The more tourist facilities (infrastructure) a country has, the greater a success it achieves as a tourist destination * Developments in information technologies have also had a great impact.

Factors Affecting Teams

...5 Factors Affecting Team Effectiveness In An Organisation Some of the factors affecting team effectiveness are shown as follows: While informal work groups often develop feelings of close affiliation among members, formal work groups sometimes do not develop such loyalty. It is very important for management to develop, among the group members, such characteristics as dedication and cohesiveness. As Likert concludes: “Management will make full use of the potential capacities of its human resources only when each person in the organization is a member of one or more effectively functioning work groups that have a high degree of group loyalty, effective skills of interaction, and high performance goals.” To build an effective team, the management must provide an environment which is conducive to team work with an attitude which is understanding and supportive of team efforts and innovation. It is a real challenge to management to learn how to use groups more effectively. a. Individuals: A group is as good as the individuals who form the group. If the individuals are dedicated and consciously aware of their roles and their responsibilities towards accomplishing their group and organizational objectives, then the group would be an effective group. It is necessary and important that all members must share the enthusiasm of group activities and group accomplishments. b....

Factors Affecting Income

...WHAT FACTORS AFFECT YOUR INCOME? What are the factors that determine your earnings? Is it your skills, experience, competence, diligence, luck, profession, your network and contacts or your greed? Some people always seem to get more material rewards out of life than others. Many companies have fixed salaries, take it or leave it. Some have job grades with small margins for negotiations, while for some jobs you can negotiate with large margins. Have you ever thought who or what determines how much you earn? Is it your employer, the customers, the industry average, the government or some mysterious ‘market force’ or is it your skills, experience or your connections? Factors Determining Your Income No matter how highly you price yourself, three factors determine the material compensation (meaning money or equivalent) you get for your work. How others value what you do – People who are paying you for your services put a certain measurable value on your contribution. Your skills, experience and the value you add to the buyer of your services or your employer, determine the material compensation you get. This value may be very subjective as some people are more skilful in convincing others that their contribution should be valued higher than that of others. How well you do what you do – This is trickier. It doesn’t mean that if you do your job better than a colleague doing similar tasks at the same workplace, you will automatically earn more....

Factors Affecting Biodiversity

...Explain how different factors can influence the variations in global biodiversity (10 marks) The biodiversity of the planet Earth is the total variability of life forms. There are around 1.9 million extant species. There are many factors that can influence the variations in global biodiversity which can be either physical or human. The size of an area heavily decides the variations in biodiversity. The bigger the area, the larger the biodiversity, as large continuous biomes can support a wider range of species and extensive boundaries can encourage migration. Also, a larger area is more susceptible to a variety in climate, which can support a variation in species. A good example of this factor taking place is the Amazon Rainforest. This vast area of 5,500,000 located in the Amazon Basin of South America has the largest collection of animal and plant species in the world, as wet tropical forests are the most species-rich biome. It is home to 10% of the world’s known biodiversity. History and age shows that older and least disturbed ecosystems, is where there is generally higher biodiversity, especially in the tropics, where there are few physical constraints on productivity. Older ecosystems have a greater biodiversity as there is a longer time period for new species to evolve. Not only for new species, but also for migratory species such as birds....
