Back from the 1990’s emotional intelligence or (EIQ) if you prefer was and still is the biggest phase in contempory psychology. In the business world it is one of the hottest topics thanks to author Daniel Goldman, righter of Emotional Intelligents why it can matter more than IQ.
When taking the EIQ test it relayed to me a message of my results, those results were:
There's some bad news and some good news. The bad news is that your Emotional IQ is rather low. In a practical sense, this means that you are not reaching your full potential. Low EIQ has a negative impact on all aspects of life such as relationships, emotional health and level of motivation. As a result of your behavior, others may often view you as critical, inexpressive, inhibited, detached, cold, or even condescending. Your difficulties relating to others and dealing successfully with your own emotions may have a negative impact on your health; people with lower EIQs are prone to anxiety, depression, excessive guilt, aggressiveness, low self-concept, and stress-related problems. Chances are that you also have difficulty bouncing back from life's problems. Now for the good news: by learning and practicing new skills and more effective ways of dealing with people, you can significantly improve your EIQ. The benefits will be numerous, including stronger relationships, a more successful career and better health. Most of all, you will be an all-around happier person.
My experience with taking this test was hard hitting. It showed me that I need to overcome some obstacles’ in my life to be a better person. It also tells me that I worry too much about all the things in life that is uncontrollable. This test made me realize that I look down too much on myself and the abilities I have to overcome certain situations. It also helps me understand that no matter what I have to love myself and help myself…...

...“The mid-twentieth-century era of a dictatorship is a highly disturbing chapter in the history of civilization. The key development was not only the resurgence of authoritarian rule but also the rise of a particularly ruthless brand of totalitarianism that reached its full realization in the Soviet Union, Nazi Germany, and Japan in the 1930’s. Stalin, Hitler, and Japan’s military leaders intervened radically in society and ruled with unprecedented severity” (McKay, History of World Societies, p. 907). Hitler came to power in 1933 in Germany. There are a few reasons why Hitler came to power from his incredible speaking to his many promises. Germany had just been through a war and had lost. With the ending of the war the Treaty of Versailles was a step toward establishing order. “More harshly the Allies declared Germany (with Austria) was responsible for the war and had therefore to pay reparations equal to all civilian damages caused by the war” (McKay, History of World Societies, p. 863). The government opposed and protested this Treaty, but there was no alternative. With this treaty in effect, living in Germany was very hard. The people of Germany were poor and needed someone to lead them out of this depression they had fallen into. Hitler promised to restore hope and to solve the problems of the depression. To Germans at the time Hitler made sense, uniting everyone. With Adolf Hitler came his National Socialism movement. National Socialism was shaped by Hitler’s beliefs...

... type and act just like him. A research strand is saying “Children who consume high levels of media violence are more likely to be aggressive in the real world”. In relation of years, television and movie theater became big after the 70’s. The crime and drug wage in the 80’s and the decline in violent crime due to incarceration in the 90’s made our nation vulnerable to federal government control. In the 90’s, violent crime declined. Our nation joy a period of seven long years of low crime. Statistics shows during this period a 25% in violent crime declining. During this period, the prison population grew approximately 47%, taking into account changes in national population in the history of violent crime in the USA. The new report says that between 2000 and 2001, the number of people who reported they were victims of violent crime fell from about 28 per 1,000 to about 25 per 1,000, a 10% drop. The people who reported violent crime fell from 6, 323,000 in 2000 to 5,744,000 in 2001. In accordance with a FBI report in violent crime figures. In conclusion, America has to recognize its problems with gangs, drugs and organize crime. This type of negative behavior is spreading to all our society and helping to create a new breed of people. The media or producers of movies need to provide with tools or ideas to how to create a new society, a new way, or style of life through work and education. Instead, they stimulate...

...How have these sources developed my understanding of the holocaust? The sources I used to do my assignment have helped my understanding of the holocaust hugely making my knowledge of the holocaust even wider as there is so much detail and effort put into this very important and devastating event that occurred I had little understanding of the holocaust before these sources broadened my knowledge there are so many things about hitlers plans to get rid of jews that it so horrible I couldn’t even imagine how he could come up with such horible things . The one source that helped me a lot to do my assignment and to teach me more about the holocaust was the united states memorial dedicated to the victims of the holocaust. The one thing that triggered my mind which I learnt about via this website was the jewish partisans and nazi genocide , I didn’t realize that there were jews to fight against the nazi party in this way this site has made me want to investigate more on why hitler targeted this race and others . And It doesn’t make sense why hitler would want to kill people who had actually fought for Germany and defended Germany in world war 1. The other sources I used I didn’t find as effective as this one because they were lacking in all information however I found that they did answer the question that needed to be answered but it didn’t have the same depth and knowledge that the other site did have. Overall I think both sites increased my knowledge of the holocaust and......

Cultural Diversity in Criminal Justice: Victimology

... Derrick L. Jackson Cultural Diversity in Criminal Justice CRJS410 - 1304A - 01 Professor: Samantha Carlo Unit 1 Individual Project 1 July 25, 2013 Abstract Within this paper a report is written for the California Chief Attorney in efforts to support a presentation to the County Commission. Key components of victimology, history of victimology, theories, and differences between criminology and victimology are discussed. The flagstaff of safe houses for abused women and children, along with our nation’s first rape crises center are highlighted. The contribution from our history’s civil rights movement and how it has played a part in the U.S. laws are explained, along with children’s rights groups and the problems child victims face in the criminal justice system. In the conclusion of this paper, readers will be given a path to take in regards to advocacy groups for victims. Before we begin to understand the concept of victimology I feel it is important to first understand the definition of a victim, and the history in which victimology stems from. To be a victim means that you are a person who individually or collectively, has suffered harm, including physical or mental injury, emotional suffering, economic loss or substantial impairment of your fundamental rights, through acts or omissions that are in violation of criminal laws operative within member state, including those laws proscribing criminal abuse of power (UN Declaration 1985 on Basic Principles of Justice for...

Writing a Victimology Report

... of financial instability, such as garnishments, draws, and collection calls at work would be investigated. Statements the victim made to his co-workers could shed light on other aspects of the lifestyle the victim enjoyed or not enjoyed. Any adversarial business relationships would be identified and investigated. From the information above, a list of domestic/significant relationships would be built. Some other important information to known about is the victim's general state of physical and mental health. It Would be a good time to write a history of psychological counseling or substance abuse since it could be associated with the crime that took place. The importance of writing a good victimology report can not be stressed enough. Yes, the process of acquiring every little detail about the victim is long and can be frustrating at times; but when the time comes when you need to know or explain anything about the victim, you’ll have your report to turn to. When/if you need to appear in court to assist the prosecutor, you want to make sure you have every detail in that victimology report, just in case it is needed in court. Many people say that the report writing is what makes an investigator a good one, and i agree with them. If you don’t take the time to really learn and study about the crime or victim, then why are you even investigating in the first place?...

... city of Antioch. Seleucus When the Seleucids fell out of favor in the city, Antioch joined with the Romans and became part of the Roman Republic. Rome ruled Antioch for a long period until the Crusader Era where it became the capital of the crusades/ One of the most significant accomplishments that were known to come from the city of Antioch was that it was known for the founding of Christianity. Although Antioch became part of the Roman dynasty and eventually into what we know now as Turkey, there still exist many cultural aspects that existed during the Antioch time period. For example, Farming in todays’ southern part of Turkey is very similar to how it was during Ancient Antioch. Foods such as Wheat, grapes, olives and cotton are still produced here (Aakanksha). The main reason Antioch became what it is known for today is its foundation in Christianity. Not only in Turkey but also the rest of the world, Christianity is one of the most practiced religions. None of that would have been possible without the foothold that began during the period in Antioch. St. Peters Cave, known as one of the oldest Churches in the modern era still stands today and is visited by tourist as well as religious figures of our time.

...Police History Brett Hanson CJA/211 August 7, 2009 Sarah Plies Police History The image of a uniformed police officer is so ingrained into our system today that it's easy to think of the cops as an institution used to stop crime. It may be surprising that the idea of police officers as we know them is an extremely young concept, dating back to only the 19th century. As did most governmental institutions, law enforcement agencies in society evolved slowly over time. In the ancient societies, there was no law enforcement of any kind there were only families and clans that took it upon themselves to take revenge against those who may have inured or offended or killed one of their own. The idea of crime prevention was almost nonexistent in the early history of law enforcement and criminology. During the early history of policing, individual citizens were largely responsible for maintaining law and order among themselves. Those who served as a judge or jury did so voluntarily and were not paid for their services. This loosely-based system of social control worked quite well for centuries, particularly in more rural and less populated regions. However, the late 1700's and early 1800's saw a population explosion in major cities in the United States and England. Riots and civil unrest was common, and it became increasingly clear that there was a need for a more permanent and professional form of law enforcement that would carry the official authority of the government...

Intro to Victimology

...Abstract This paper will provide a definition and history of victimology as well as give examples of real life victims. Second, this paper will discuss how victimology is different from criminology, sociology and psychology. This paper will also discuss hate crimes, the first safe house for battered women, children’s rights groups. Finally, this paper will also discuss organizations that provide advocacy for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse and homicides. Introduction to Victimology Victimology is the study of victims of crime and the interactions between the victim and the perpetrator (victimology, 2006). Victimology is to investigate the victims role in the commission of crimes and sometimes the psychological effect those crimes have on the victims (victimology, 2007). Today’s criminal justice system is a fairly new appearance, in the middle ages victims themselves were responsible for dealing with criminals on their own as there were no authorities to enforce the law. Murder has always been unacceptable behavior, but it was always up to the victims or their survivors to determine the course of action to be taken against the person committing the crime. In 2200 B.C.E. was when Law of Moses, the Code of Hammurabi and Roman law all consisted of elements to individual responsibility for harms committed against others (Doerner & Lab, 2008). It was until the 1940’s that the criminal justice system decided to not only focus their time...

Victimology

...INTRODUCTION The principal aim of this paper is to trace and analyze the development of victimology. Firstly this paper will be concerned with defining the concept of victimology and the concept of victim before explaining the origins of the study of victimology. Furthermore, this paper will explain and evaluate the development of victimology as a field of study, in a broad sense this paper aims to acknowledge where the field of victimology originated and how it has developed and in addition this paper involves a general overview of the victim’s role in various systems of justice throughout history. Defining the concept “victimology” Defining the concept victimology is tricky because different people define victiomology in different ways, there is no universally accepted definition of victiomology, however for the purpose of this paper one broad definition of victimology will be used but not necessarily meaning that this paper does not acknowledge that other definitions do exist. Victimology refers generally to the scientific study of victims and victimization, including the relationships between victims and offenders, investigators, courts, corrections, media, and social movements ( Karmen 1990 ). Defining the concept “victim” The origin of victimology The origin of victimology can be traced back to several articles, books, and research projects initiated by criminologists during the 1940s and 1950s. According to Walklate (2007) victimology's roots are often...

...Violence can be tied to many reasons behind it and as well as the theories that are closely associated with the reasoning’s behind violence. With Intergenerational transmission of violence being one of the theories, we can get a better understanding if and why violence is in turn carried within families from generation to generation. Can aggression within a household eventually be carried out in violence with future relationships? How is one to tell the boundaries for aggression have gone too far? When a father releases his frustration on his children they are paying the price in the future. After all the father is molding them into the adults they are to become later in life. Many roles are transmitted from generation to generation. Skills such as being honest, wise, confident and being money suave, but with good there is always bad. Bad trait such as lying, cheating, and above all abuse. After watching the film on demand, “Breaking the Cycle of violence”, I could relate to where the father was coming from when he wasn’t sure how to hold back his aggression but opted to trying a different ways to control his son instead of showing force towards him. Raising kids is no easy task, but when we as parents cross the boundaries on enforcing discipline. Relating this to Morris & Gibson and their article on the influence of corporal punishment on children helps us distinguish the many rights and wrongs when it comes to disciplining children. It may help them or ultimately teach......
