When the Boss Releases Her Inner Toddler

1. How might be the episode (scene) you experienced be explained from the situational perspective? From the interactionalist perspective?

In a situational perspective, it acknowledges that there are other variables that could alter the direct relationship, and that it depends to the elements of the situation the right managerial action or behavior in any circumstance. Like in the example, in the part where the VP will be presenting his report, he was affected by the noise of thudding against the wall and that was the reason that made him go around the room and lose focus on his presentation, knowing that the president was not happy of his report. Also, one of his jobs was to evaluate each month's performance and this could also be another factor that influenced the situation where the president was angry of him because of the low sales performance on the women's apparel department. While in an interactionalist perspective, the experience he had as one of the VPs at a small chain of regional clothing stores was very difficult and challenging, especially when it comes to the president who has the inability to accept negative results which also resulted to the VP’s behavior of being so afraid of a simple presentation and not knowing of his unconscious actions that lead the president of the company to be angry with him.

2. Have you ever encountered anyone who behaved in ways that can be compared to the behavior of the teacher? As you think back on your experience, how well does Taylor’s TOT framework help explain the individuals behavior?

There will be times when we will have to face someone behaving like the boss in the example, and our group is not an exemption. Each of us had encountered someone with that kind of behavior, having the same kind of experience regarding a teacher.
One of us explained that during her high school years, she had a teacher that showed tantrums in her class, throwing chalks to students that irritates, bothers, or disrupts her lecture flow. Looking back on that experience of hers, Taylor’s TOT framework can be really deemed true. Her teacher, on our perspective could have a childish behavior; she finds it hard to handle pressure or stress. She wants everything to happen in her favor and if not, she kind of freaks out. On the contrary, as to what Taylor explained regarding the TOT framework, it's really important to know how to react. When someone starts acting childish, we should be able to know how to parent that behavior. Understanding and patience is helpful too, because it could enable us to deal with negative situations the positive way. In the end, it all boils down to who acted professionally and who managed it all in a "just right" manner.

3. Of the items on Burn’s list of recommended coping techniques, which would you be most likely to adopt?

Situations like what happened to the VP in the example episode may not be avoided since people may display different behaviors. People could be good or bad towards you, and the only thing that you could do is just to understand where they came from, what might be the reason why they acted that way, or know how to handle the right way occurrences like those.
Of the coping techniques Karen Burn listed, there are a few that could be used in handling those circumstances. One of which is being a star performer, you should always maintain having a positive disposition even when put through hard conditions. For example, when the company you’re working on is going through unexpected turbulence, you could be the one who brings a positive vibe to the company, being optimistic towards the unfortunate event that happened. Another would be pick your moments, avoiding your boss would not be a good action, one way to do it is to face your boss in the right moment. Seek community, as much as possible; seeking the help of others would make your experience in the workplace a lot more less than heavy, it is nice when you have someone to share with your short comings in the workplace. And lastly, Control what you can, just always keep in mind that you cannot control everything, what you can do is know the way how you would handle it.

Quiet: Power of Introverts

...MORE ADVANCE NOISE FOR QUIET “An intriguing and potentially lifealtering examination of the human psyche that is sure to benefit both introverts and extroverts alike.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review) “Gentle is powerful … Solitude is socially productive … These important counterintuitive ideas are among the many reasons to take Quiet to a quiet corner and absorb its brilliant, thought-provoking message.” —ROSABETH MOSS KANTER, professor at Harvard Business School, author of Confidence and SuperCorp “An informative, well-researched book on the power of quietness and the 3/929 virtues of having a rich inner life. It dispels the myth that you have to be extroverted to be happy and successful.” —JUDITH ORLOFF, M.D., author of Emotional Freedom “In this engaging and beautifully written book, Susan Cain makes a powerful case for the wisdom of introspection. She also warns us ably about the downside to our culture’s noisiness, including all that it risks drowning out. Above the din, Susan’s own voice remains a compelling presence—thoughtful, generous, calm, and eloquent. Quiet deserves a very large readership.” —CHRISTOPHER LANE, author of Shyness: How Normal Behavior Became a Sickness 4/929 “Susan Cain’s quest to understand introversion, a beautifully wrought journey from the lab bench to the motivational speaker’s hall, offers convincing evidence for valuing substance over style, steak over sizzle, and qualities that are, in America, often derided.

...Chapter 1 SIGMUND FREUD AN INTRODUCTION Sigmund Freud, pioneer of Psychoanalysis, was born on 6th May 1856 in Freiberg to a middle class family. He was born as the eldest child to his father’s second wife. When Freud was four years old, his family shifted and settled in Vienna. Although Freud’s ambition from childhood was a career in law, he decided to enter the field of medicine. In 1873, at the age of seventeen, Freud enrolled in the university as a medical student. During his days in the university, he did his research on the Central Nervous System under the guidance of German physician `Ernst Wilhelm Von Brucke’. Freud received his medical degree in 1881and later in 1883 he began to work in Vienna General Hospital. Freud spent three years working in various departments of the hospital and in 1885 he left his post at the hospital to join the University of Vienna as a lecturer in Neuropathology. Following his appointment as a lecturer, he got the opportunity to work under French neurologist Jean Charcot at Salpetriere, the famous Paris hospital for nervous diseases. So far Freud’s work had been entirely concentrated on physical sciences but Charcot’s work, at that time, concentrated more on hysteria and hypnotism. Freud’s studies under Charcot, which centered largely on hysteria, influenced him greatly in channelising his interests to psychopathology. In 1886, Freud established his private practice in Vienna specializing in nervous......

...write a story that consisted entirely of a War between Mormons and Scientologists and Atheist Texan Cowboys in the Future, and he said that would be fine. I knew he’d let me do it, as his homosexuality is a well known fact to the student body, and therefore his concomitant openness to avant-guard art and literature and experimentation and stuff like that. Not like the other English teacher, Ms. Nichols, who is the sort of totally sexless spinster that makes her students write poems about Jesus, which I’m pretty sure is fucking illegal, although I’m sure nobody in this hick town cares. God and Football, all the way. Ok, so, then I didn’t do any work on it at all until last night. We had to do a one-page outline a few weeks ago, which is so stupid, so I did it on the bus and I have no idea what I wrote, so last night I just started over from scratch. Anyway, last night, I thought, hey, why not post it on the forums and see what people on the forums think about it? And then, I had the absolute coolest idea. What if, when I hand in the final copy, I hand in the entire thread as my story? My story would be in there somewhere, and then all the posts that you goons make will also be part of the story. That would be so awesome, because...

Introduction to Psychology

...TPS 101: INTRODUCTION TO PSYCHOLOGY TPS 101 serves as the beginning course in psychology; as such, it is broad in scope. The course will introduce students to the history of psychology, and current paradigms and theories. We will cover neuroscience, sensation, perception, memory, and language, stress and health psychology, personality and social psychology, intelligence, and developmental psychology. Because of time limitations, none of these topics can be covered in great depth. The reference textbooks and the material presented in class will serve as the primary sources for the material to be covered. INTRODUCTION TO THE STUDY OF PSYCHOLOGY Psychology is the scientific study of behaviour and mental processes. It is an academic and applied discipline involving the scientific study of mental processes and behaviour. Psychology also refers to the application of such knowledge to various spheres of human activity, including problems of individuals' daily lives and the treatment of mental illness. It is largely concerned with humans, although the behaviour and mental processes of animals can also be part of psychology research, either as a subject in its own right (e.g. animal cognition and ethnology), or somewhat more controversially, as a way of gaining an insight into human psychology by means of comparison (including comparative psychology). Origins of the psychology Near the end of 19th century things started drawing together. Questions raised by philosophers were......
