Liebert & Spiegler’s text on the four strategies of personality for me was an interesting journey through the minds of some of the greatest thinkers of all time. Personality makes us who we are. I’ve learned that it guides me in how I make my life decisions and that I carry my personality into every situation. The type of personality you develop through the stages of life can adversely or positively affect your current life situation.
In reading the chapter on the Dispositional Strategy I felt the authors were successful in relaying the information in such a way that made it easy to understand. The question that arose in my mind was is my personality made up from the gene pools of my parents and already predisposed or does it develop over time? For example, the idea of saying African-Americans are lazy or Jewish people are cheap, Italians are hot-headed, is a label that was placed on groups of people many decades ago and does not give a person the proper insight into one individual’s personality. I did not agree with the connection of describing groups of people by nationality or race in dispositional terms. After reading through the sections and doing some more research I have come to my own assessment that our personalities develop over time as we grow and are exposed to new experiences throughout our childhood. We start to develop our likes and dislikes, and I think that falls in line with the Freudian theory
Freud’s theory on the Id and pleasure principle, ego and superego fell in line with my thoughts. The idea of the brain being broken down into “sections” and developing from infancy made sense. As babies we are born with the need to satisfy ourselves; eating, drinking, sleeping, the Id. Freud’s idea that as we grow our personality starts to emerge and by the age of three our ego develops making us more cognizant of other people’s needs...

...practices are in a combination setting of three places. The weight room is used for conditioning weigh training and is located above the gym. The gym is used for mat practice and warm-ups and the local community is used for endurance and cardio exercises. The specific setting I have chosen is in the gym for mat practice and warm-ups of which is where the team spends most of their time. The purpose for choosing this setting is to observe the dynamics of social interaction accompanied by leadership of the older more senior varsity wrestlers and to include the naturalistic form of competition that exists in sports programs. The gym environment is typical for a rural community high school as it is small in size. Laid out on the floor there are four large wrestling mats coordinated with team logos to accommodate 23 team members. Eight members are female wrestlers and fifteen are male wrestlers. Education level ranges from senior to freshman as varsity and junior varsity has not yet been decided. The wrestling team has three coaches as...

History Paper

...Name: Zhihao J. Date: 03/23/2014 Class: HIST 119 Primary Source Analysis on The Salt Merchant’s Wife 1.) Bo Ju-Yi is one of the many famous poets in the Tang dynasty. He presents his poems in a variety of style. More specifically, he mostly addresses social and political issues that are unjust to ordinary people. In this particular poem, he addresses the issue of merchants gaining too much profits that the government can’t obtain enough taxes revenue. 2.) This poem expresses excessive richness of a merchant through a third person’s perspective --- his wife. By doing so, the merchant’s wealth is more emphasized here because not only can he live a luxury life but his wife also can. I personally believe that the narrator is the author Bo Ju-Yi because he is criticizing the way that merchants gain too much money and also challenges the social problem that a person can obtain wealth easily without working hard. 3a.) According to the basic ideas of the poem, the audiences might be intended to be the scholar officials who want to challenge the social problem that the merchants on the bottom of the social classes gain too much profits without any kinds of production while the educated scholar officials on the top of the social classes gain much less profit. The merchant’s wife is mentioned several times throughout the poem. She does absolutely nothing and yet is able to live a much better life than the scholar officials can thanks to her wealthy merchant husband. The......

...Running head: WEEK THREE INDIVIDUAL ASSIGNMENT 1 Popular Literature Paper SOC/105 October 10 2012 WEEK THREE INDIVIDUAL ASSIGNMENT 2 The following paper will describe to the reader a brief overview, followed by a little bit about the author, and then explain how this type of popular fiction fits with other literature in the same genre. Comic books of yesterday and today have introduced a lot of new and interesting characters. The character that I selected to right about is the Incredible Hulk. The Incredible Hulk was introduced to the world in a comic book back in 1962. This character, Bruce Banner, was a scientist that was working with atomic weapons when an atomic bomb went off and exposed him to an enormous amount of gamma radiation. When he was exposed to the radiation, it turned him into a savage and extremely strong animal of a human being. Normally when Mr. Banner becomes enraged the Incredible Hulk is exposed and only when the Incredible Hulk calms down does he turn back into Bruce Banner. Although the Hulk's color has varied just a bit over the time that he has existed, the majority of the time he is the favorable and most popular green color. Whenever Bruce Banner turns into the Incredible Hulk, he is then capable of immense strength, minus the brains. Strong emotions such as anger, terror and grief are also triggers......

...Armero, Rizzalyn M. BSACTECH I. Definitions 1. Condition is a future and uncertain event, upon the happening of which, the effectivity or extinguishment of an obligation (or right) subject to it depends. 2. Civil loss- when a thing disappears in such a way that its existence is unknown; or even if known, it cannot be recovered, whether as a matter of fact or of law. 3. Reciprocal obligations are those which arise from the same cause and in which each party is a debtor and creditor of the other, such that the performance of one is designed to be the equivalent and the condition for the performance of the other. 4. Pure obligation is one which is not subject to any condition and no specific date is mentioned for its fulfilment and is, therefore, immediately demandable. 5. Potestative condition- a condition suspensive in nature and which depends upon the sole will of one of the contracting parties. II. Discussions 1. Illustrate an obligation subject to: a. Suspensive condition- the fulfilment of which will give rise to an obligation (or right). In other words, the demandability of the obligation is suspended until the happening of the uncertain event which constitutes the condition. b.

What is the effect of the fulfilment of the condition in a conditional obligation? * Acquisition of rights * Loss of rights 2. If the...

First Week of School

...Reflection #1 Let me just start with saying that high school is completely different from college. I am looking forward to finishing my high school career at SCFCS and I am excited on what comes to this new adventure. I have learned a new couple tricks at the seminar which will be in use for all my subjects, I also have figured out how to do finish all my assignments on time, and last but not the least just some challenges I am trying to overcome. Last week on Thursday on the 3rd of September, a lady from the SCF library came in to talk to the class. I learned a couple things from her. I already knew coming in how citations are very critical in college but I did not know how to cite properly. The staff are experts when it comes to that, they are willing to help us cite properly. Another thing I found very helpful is that we already have $5 dollars in our account that we can use for free printing, I thought that was pretty nice of the school to do that. Mostly I was very intrigued about the Data Base on their website. It is very helpful for any kind of research papers, whether it is English, Science, or even History. The thing that is really cool about the database is that they are ALL reliable sources. I actually already used it a few days ago for my English paper and it definitely saved me a lot of time. Taking 6 subjects all at once equals tons of endless homework. I was pretty stressed out the first week of school because I kept thinking to myself that it is......

What Literacy Means to Alexie

...What does Literacy mean to Alexie? It all started out with a comic book; a superman comic book that opened up three year old Alexie’s eyes to success. Along with learning to read by himself by looking at comic books and trying to associate words with pictures came different struggles, his parent’s not being able to afford great books, spending his whole day trying to learn how to make the words become real to him, and of course the biggest struggle; his peers making fun of him for being smart. For Alexie to go through all of these struggles alone; learning to read and write must mean something more than just scanning through words on a page or writing the alphabet mixed up in different combinations, it must mean something much greater. The first thing that shows that Literacy means something more to Alexie is that it means being sufficiently educated with his writing and reading skills. Alexie’s wild adventure began with opening a comic book back when he was three years old. He had tried to associate the words and the pictures to try to teach him-self how to read. To this day, he cannot recall exactly what the comic book was, but he was indeed successful. After trying to read that comic book, Alexie wanted more, he didn’t want to learn how to read; in his mind, he had to. Alexie’s Father was an avid reader and I believe that Alexie got the idea to teach him-self to read because he wanted to be just like his father. The family was not rich; very far from it, but......

...striking with your head or your hands, with only the head strikes counting as points. Originally the game was designed to be played for a time limit (1-2 Minutes) and with the team losing a point each time the ball hits the floor. When playing this version, it is a good idea to designate 1 person, in each group, to be the counter. At the end of the time limit, groups will compare scores, then try again to beat their previous score. With younger groups, you could play the same version. However, I have also played that the round is over as soon as the ball hits the ground. Each team would then compete against the class best and/or their personal best. Set up nets so they form for separate courts (resembling a four square court). The class is divided into four teams. Play begins with the team in...

...Love  Is never afraid Of fear.   Fear Is always afraid Of love   No destruction-fear  In oneness-love.  No oneness-love  In destruction-fear.   Fear beckons danger. Fear is self-enslavement. Fear is the eternal loser. Fear is helplessly founded upon stupidity. Fear secretly travels with the mind and openly travels with the body. Because you fear, God the Satisfaction does not hear you and God the Perfection does not near you. If fear knows how to grow quickly, then love knows how to glow soulfully, convincingly and perfectly. - Sri Chinmoy    Jealousy has  Frightening eyes.  Jealousy has  Grinding teeth.  Jealousy has  A cunning face.   Jealousy can live  Without a mind,  Without a heart,  Without a soul,  Even without God. Human jealousy  And divine Ecstasy Are eternal strangers. Jealousy  Is an aggressive boxer,  A repulsive dancer,  A hopeless singer  And a useless storyteller.   Jealousy,  Before you entered  Into my life,  I was the world's  Richest prince.  Now that you are in me And I am for you,  I have become  The poorest street-beggar.

Similarities Between ThéRèS Raquin and the Origin of the Species

...Thérèse Raquin was published in 1867 shortly after Charles Darwin’s Origin of the species was published in 1859 and translated into French in 1862. Darwin’s book looked at the theory of natural selection and its effects on the animal kingdom. It looked into ideas such as natural selection, the struggle for existence, inherited traits and survival of the fittest, all of these subjects can also been found in Émile Zola’s ‘Thérès Raquin’, Zola applied these theories not just to society as a whole but to a specific family. Zola is thought to be one of the greatest naturalist writers. He was keen on the idea that fictional writing could be much like a science that could be used to study human passions and psychology and hoped to develop a ‘scientific literature’, one that could be seen by looking at science through a microscope. The preface to the second edition is used by Zola to speak to the reader directly and to give them some guidance and understanding about the intention of the book. He states ‘In a word, I wanted only one thing: given a powerful man and a dissatisfied women, to search out the beast in them, and nothing but the beast, plunge them into a violent drama and meticulously note the feelings and actions of these two beings’. Here he clearly says that humans are much like animals, with their predatory instincts and he puts this couple together, almost like an experiment to see how they react together and what happens next. Zola seemed to be captivated by......
