The Gardner’s theory is a model of intelligence that differentiates intelligence into various specific (primarily sensory) modalities, rather than seeing it as dominated by a single general ability. The Gardner’s theory started around 1983. His full name is Howard Gardner. Howard Gardner came up with seven intelligences spatial, linguistic, logical-mathematical, bodily kinesthetic, musical, interpersonal and intrapersonal. In 1999 he identify naturalist and existential intelligence as the eighth and ninth types of intelligences. Gardner figured out that the different intelligence operate in an interdependent way rather than independently. The different intelligence complement each other and function in away that people can build skills and solve problems.
The two intelligence that apply to me the most is musical intelligence and linguistic intelligence. Musical intelligence encompasses the capability to recognize and compose musical pitches, tones, and rhythms. I have been singing and playing the flute for many years. I never had any training in the flute or vocal lessons. When I was younger my mother bought me a flute and I immediately knew what to do with it. When I sing the sound that comes out is so peaceful and beautiful. I love to change the pitch and rhythm when I sing. When I want to learn something or remember something I can sing it or play it on my flute. I use musical intelligence just about everyday in my life.
Linguistic intelligence involves having a mastery of language. I love writing poetry. I started writing poetry in the 1st grade,” Roses are Red, Violets are blue, Sugar is Sweet, and I know I am too”. That was my first poem I every wrote. Then as I got older I started to write more and even better. In high school we read a book called the “Tess of the d'Urbervilles” but I could not get into it. So for me to learn and…...

...Theory “Adlerian Psychology focuses on people's efforts to compensate for their self-perceived inferiority to others. These feelings of inferiority may derive from one's position in the family constellation, particularly if early experiences of humiliation occurred; a specific physical condition or defect existed; or a general lack of social feeling for others was present (Adler, n.d.)”. These feelings in society guide the professional behavior that makes up the theory of criminal justice is a crucial part of criminal justice system, and the ethics that make up moral principles of right and wrong, administration that distributes burden and stresses common good in our legal system. We are, faced with ethical issues every day and must deal with components that make up our involved system in a professional manner.

...University of Nottingham Ningbo China Business School Academic Year 2012/13 Autumn Semester Entrepreneurship and Business Maris Farquharson Discuss the relationship between entrepreneurship, innovation and economic development. What role do creativity and problem solving play in this relationship? Xiaoyu XU Student ID: 6509160 Word Count: 2006 COPY 1 1. Introduction In the recent few decades, the development of traditional manufacture is restricted as a result of the limitation of both capital and nature resources. Simultaneously, entrepreneurship and innovation are attached more and more importance in enhancing sustainable economic growth. Therefore, there is a need to explore the genuine relationship between entrepreneurship, innovation and economic development. Entrepreneurship has numerous definitions and one of the most acknowledged literatures is Schumpeter’s (1934) theory which viewed entrepreneurship as a creative reply to a problem or opportunity. On the other hand, innovation is simply doing something in a way which is new, different and better (Wickham, 2006). Nonetheless, in the process of realizing economic growth, problems will definitely occur and thus creativity and problem solving capabilities may play a significant role in the relationships above. While it may be true that innovation, as a crucial part of the entrepreneurial process, and entrepreneurship both have positive effects on economic growth, the overall GDP of a domain...

Kumar, RN, MSN, CNS, is Assistant Professor of Nursing, Kingsborough Community College, Brooklyn, New York. Introduction As the average lifespan is extended, more individuals are coping with chronic illnesses such as diabetes, which has reached epidemic proportions with more than 20 million people in the United States having this diagnosis (Gordois, Scuffham, Shearer, Oglesby, & Tobian, 2003). The American Diabetes Association (ADA) estimates that a million people will be diagnosed of diabetes every year (2004). Long-term complications of diabetes are costly to both the individual and the healthcare system. Over the past decade, diabetes research has focused on pharmacological approaches and lifestyle interventions to the illness (Odegard, Setter, & Iltz, 2006). Recent evidence in the forum of diabetes care revealed a need for healthcare professionals to assess and empower individuals in the self-management of this illness. For the purposes of this case study, health assessment by nurses was defined by Fuller and Schaller-Ayers (2000) as a...

...I. What is a concept? a. A building block of a theory, can be a few of them, b. abstract ideas that cannot be visualized. Such as pain or coping or social support. You can have an idea in your mind of what these are but you cant actually touch any of these. Can you touch social support? You can probably touch a part of your body that may feel some sense of pain but the actual concept itself cannot be touched. c. Tend to be universal which means they apply equally to everything related. d. Concepts tend to be the basic elements of propositions (or statements that result from reason). If you remember geometry they had the proposition they had the “if A equaled B and B equaled C.Does A equal C.” That is the idea of what propositions are and they take concepts and build on them to create these statements to help define whatever we are discussing such as theory, research study. e. Help to integrate unrelated phenomena into a hypothesis which creates research. Critical to have very defined concepts and the concepts needed to be created into hypothesis so that you had something to study. That is critical when we discuss concepts and research i. Phenomenon is any even that can be experiences via senses, it is observable and can be seen. ii. Proposition: closed sentence or statement 1. Like geometry: If A=B and B=C, then A=C 2.

...THEORY Integration, values and mental health Integration is commonly considered to be essential to the healthy personality. It has been found in the definition of many personality psychologists and plays a central role in health. Over a long period of time integration has been identified as having the following characteristics: (a) The presence of a unifying life theme, (b) an overriding goal, giving meaning to all of life, and (c) values that give direction to a goal (Csikszentmihalyi, 2009, Levy, 1990, Lecky, 2010). Allport (1968) is far and away the expert in the field of meaning and values in psychology. He identifies different life themes that can give meaning to life. The healthy person, according to Allport, is the one who can give meaning to his life through choosing one of these life themes. Everyone eventually chooses a life theme that is meaningful to them. R. May (personal communication, August 30, 1983) said that the struggle between meaningfulness and a lack of meaning represented the human being's single most difficult challenge. METHODOLOGY The therapeutic team A therapeutic team was employed at each clinical site that had a psychologist, social worker, and medical specialist. The site was contacted to obtain permission to carry out the research. There were two treatment groups, criminals and non-criminals.

Theory X & Theory Y

...Theory X and Theory Y: “In establishing the capability-building agenda, top management provides employees with a clear view of the next advantage to be constructed. Challenges are the milestones on the path between today and tomorrow; they are the operational means of staging the acquisition of new competitive advantages. Corporate challenges are the operational means of staging the acquisition of new competitive advantages. Challenges are the means for allocating emotional and intellectual energy, energy that flows from enthusiasm for the firm’s strategic intent. We believe that the task of focusing intellectual and emotional energy is as important for top management as allocating financial responsibilities—unless every employee feels a deep sense of responsibility for success, and has a clear channel for contribution, global leadership, will remain elusive.” (Hamel and Prachald, 1994). Thus, we must manage our businesses so employees—advise from management—must have a clear channel for how they can contribute. To this end, is there a venue that exists that will give the worker on the assembly line the same sense of direction as the CEO? We will first test a remedy proposed in the 1960’s by published management theory mentor Douglas McGregor. McGregor’s perspective was that management was more that simply giving orders and coercing obedience; it was a careful balancing of organizational needs with those of the individual. He defined these individual needs...

...The influence of consequential ethics as an ethical framework (the greatest good for the greatest number) opposes the ethical principle of deontology (i.e., the rightness of an act itself determines what is right). Both of these impact the nursing profession. Modern social exchange theories are based on the principle of utility. Read the assumptions of social exchange theory and consider how these would affect the nurse-patient relationship, compared to how these impact the nurse within the health care environment. To what extent are all theories ethical? Is social exchange theory compatible with the values of the nursing profession? Theories from the sociologic sciences are integral to the discipline of nursing (McEwen &Wills, 2014). Social exchange theory deals with the many different types of interactions among patients and their nurses. The social exchange theory is defined as “a flow of emotional concern, instrumental aid, information, and or appraisal (information relevant to self-evaluation) between people” (Leahy-Warren, 2007, p. 370). The implication for using non-nursing theories to develop nursing knowledge is that borrowed theories are potentially useful for understanding the patient nurse interaction. The two categories of social exchange theories are individualistic and collectivist. In individualistic frame work “human beings are motivated by self-interest to act” (McEwen &Wills, 2014). In individulistic method the nurse will provide comprehensive...

Theory Review

...personal criminological theory review Janise harris ajs/542 instructor reyes january 19, 2015 personal criminological theory review Janise harris ajs/542 instructor reyes january 19, 2015 Personal Criminological Theory Review In criminology, analyzing why individuals perpetrate wrongdoing is imperative in the progressing level headed discussion of how crime should be taken care of and prevented. Numerous theories have developed throughout the years, and they keep on being investigated, individually and in combination, as criminologists look for the best solutions in eventually diminishing sorts and levels of crime. During the six weeks of this course we have examined several theories. Here is a review of some of the key theories: * Rational choice theory: Individuals act in their venture toward oneself and settle on choices to perpetrate wrongdoing in the wake of measuring the potential dangers against the rewards. * Social disorganization theory: An individual’s physical and social situations are basically in charge of the behavioral decisions that individual makes. * Strain theory: Many people have similar desires, yet they don’t all have the same opportunities or abilities. When individuals neglect to attain society’s desires through approved means, for example, hard work and delayed gratification, they may attempt to accomplish accomplishment through crime. * Social learning theory: Individuals create inspiration to commit crime and the...

...Orem’s Theory and Leadership Gretchen M. Ngaruiya Chamberlain College of Nursing NR501: Theoretical Basis in Advanced Nursing September 2015 Orem’s Theory and Leadership Nursing theory can be used to help solve problems in any aspect of nursing. It can solve problems in general nursing as well as leadership and management issues. The topic or specialty is not necessarily the basis on which nursing theory should be used to solve the problem because many different theories double to cover multiple disciplines. In this paper we are going to discuss Orem’s theory. Orem’s general nursing theory encompasses the ideas that self-care is necessary for the benefit of health and that as nurses we are designated to assess and find the self-care deficits and recognize who is needed to be able to perform the action (nursing) for the individual, and this relates to many nursing issues because it basically defines the role of the nurse to the patient in recognition to total care of the patient. And no matter what specialty you are in the main goal is adequate patient care. This paper will discuss a problem that happens far too often in home health. Patients are turned away daily because of assessment. Nurses in leadership positions such as administrators, directors, and admissions nurses are turning away patients because their needs are not expressed well in referrals and discharge / admission assessments. Also, discussed, will be the strategy to fix this problem by using...

...Adair approached leadership from a more practical and simple angle; by describing what leaders have to do and the actions they need to take. His model was figuratively based on three overlapping circles representing:- Achieve the task. Build and maintain the team. Develop the individual. This creates a clear distinction between leadership and management. Creating charismatic 'Great Man' leaders is difficult and cannot be relied on. You cannot guarantee that such a person can be developed and, once developed, that they will be reliable. Adair's theory is more practical and shows that leadership can be taught and that it is a transferable skill. The three circles in Adair's model overlap because:- The task needs a team because one person alone cannot accomplish it. If the team needs are not met the task will suffer and the individuals will not be satisfied. If the individual needs are not met the team will suffer and performance of the task will be impaired. Leadership Functions Adair lists eight Leadership Functions required to achieve success. These need to be constantly developed and improved to ensure success. Defining the task: Using SMART goals (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Time-Constrained) to set a clear objective. Planning: An open minded, positive and creative search for alternatives. Contingencies should be planned for and plans should be tested. Briefing: Team briefings by the leader are a basic function and essential...

...PSYC 210 Discussion Board 1 Humanism was the most beneficial theory to me at this point in my life, as this is an area that I have been working on in myself. I don’t mean to dismiss other theories, but we glean that which is useful at the time. I can see areas such as being too critical of others and their beliefs or lifestyle, when I don’t know what has gone on in their lives to bring them to the point they are in. We are all still human and that will remain. As I seek acceptance from others, I must learn to give it as well. Grace bestows grace. Or in the words of our Lord, “Love thy neighbor as thy self” (Matthew 22:39 ESV) I am starting to understand that we are all individuals with different perspectives and priorities, but at our very core we are all created in His image. That is the part we must strive to see in others. Letting the shell of this world fade from our view, and focus on God in man. “He must increase, but I must decrease” (John 3:30 ESV) In the textbook, when speaking of Carl Rogers it said “He did not think that everything people do is good but, he believed that people themselves are good, as in “Hate the sin but love the sinner” I think we should apply that to our Christian outlook more often. The other theory that I enjoyed was the cognitive theory. I think this theory applies to my Christian worldview because our world is changing and we have to keep changing as well. I think this theory would help us teach children about being christians as......
