My MBTI results showed that I am an ENFP. ENFP means enthusiastic innovators, that I am always seeing new possibilities in the world around me. It also means that my world is full of possible projects or interests that I want to pursue. I learned that I am confident, spontaneous, and flexible and that I also rely on my ability to improvise. By doing this I learned a lot of things that I did not know about myself. I can say that I am truly shocked by these results. This definitely explains why I find other types challenging. Now that I have taken this assessment I think that it is going to change the way I do anything. I know I will do some of the things different than I do now. Having this information mean a lot to me, I have read a lot on this. Such as ENFPs love variety—of ideas, people, and environments. They bring a lot of energy and enthusiasm to whatever they turn their attention to. They are stimulated by new people, ideas, and experiences. ENFPs see connections or relationships between ideas or events. They make their decisions based on their personal values. Those are some of the characteristics of an ENFP. I also learned about ENFP with others. Here are some examples, ENFPs are skillful in dealing with people and often have remarkable insight into the possibilities open to others. They look for the potential in others and then help them develop that potential. They are good at expressing appreciation and giving support. ENFPs enjoy meeting people from different cultures. They value harmony and goodwill; they like to please others and will adapt to others’ needs and wishes when possible. They usually have a large circle of friends or acquaintances and sometimes don’t distinguish between the two. ENFPs are extremely perceptive about the attitudes of others, aiming to understand rather than judge people. I can become a better student by thinking more. I…...

...win a match. Why I like this sport? I’m considered a person who likes to take risks, highly motivated and like to work in team. Paintball is also a good way to free the stress that I accumulate during the week. When I’m on the field, I feel free, but at the same time with a lot of responsibilities. Psychology plays an important role in this sport. If I were going to classify paintball under a subfield of psychology, I would classify it under cognitive psychology, which is also included under experimental psychology, the two best subfields to classify this sport. These two subfields are the ones that are focused in the studies of the psychological processes, like perception, learning, motivation, memory, thinking, reasoning, and decision-making. First of all, you have to learn how to play paintball. Learning is the first step that every human take before performing any task in life. You can’t do something if you don’t learn how to do it. When you start school, kindergarten, there you learn how to learn. Once you learned all the basics and strategies of the game, you are going to love the sport. Second, you have to be motivated to play it. If you go to the field unmotivated, the results are going to be, disqualification and maybe hurt. Depending in the position you play, you have to take decision and give orders, in order to lead your team to victory. Players have to trust their teammates, understanding their body language, a highly method of communication in the field, so......

Culture Preferences

...Week 4 Career Plan: Culture Preferences After completing the “Work Culture” preferences, I was not surprised by the results. It stated that I like working with a team of close knit people who are independent and supportive, having great ideas and being the “go to person” is my strong point because I enjoy being in control of my schedule and assignments. It also stated that I need a comfortable place to work that is safe and has all of the necessary resources to do my job. In general this description fits who I think I am as an employee as well as a leader. Completion of the Career Interest Profiler and the Competencies exercise was helpful in my search to determine what I needed to work on. Career interest profiler simplifies what career would be best suited for you by how you answer the questions asked. Within the competencies, I found that I have a lot of strength in team building. After completing both of those I found it easier to make a decision to stay with my original career path in entrepreneurship. I will focus on the business administration aspect, later venturing into human resource management. This will allow me opportunity to do all that my work culture results outlined. The work culture preferences were very similar to my personal competency results from week two of the course.

If you are thinking about buying a car, your choices can be overwhelming: Should you buy or lease? New car or used? A sport utility vehicle, a sedan, a sports car, or a minivan? Should you get a sunroof or four-wheel drive? How much extra would you pay for a vehicle that will have a high resale value in the future? What are the expected operating expenses for each model—insurance, repairs, gasoline, and so on? Finally, what opportunities will you forgo if you buy a car? How else could you spend your money, either today or in the future? Making decisions about a product with many options is not easy. Before buying a car, for example, you might draw on the experiences of friends and family, read advertisements, visit dealers, and test-drive vehicles. You might also research different models and financing options on the Web, read Consumer Reports, price insurance rates for favorite models, or even visit chat rooms frequented by car buffs. As a consumer, you make choices every day of your life. Besides choosing among automobiles, you must decide what kind of housing to......

Preference Assessment

...Preference Assessment Assignment Student Background Brandon R. is a 12 year old male diagnosed with Autism. He presents no fine or gross motor issues. He does show many delays and deficits in language and social skills. Brandon likes interacting with age appropriate peers and has many age appropriate likes and dislikes. Part 1: Develop a reinforcer menu To develop a reinforcer menu for Brandon, I observed him during free choice time, asked his mother for input, and I asked him directly. I explained to his mother how I was going to conduct the reinforcer assessment and then told her what things he was currently enjoying in school. She then added to my list and even sent some extra food supplies to school the next day. Brandon has many age appropriate likes but his likes frequently change from day to day or hour to hour. I was able to identify seven stable items to use in the reinforce menu that stay as constant likes for Brandon. Reinforcer Menu: 1. Goldfish crackers 2. 5 minutes of iPad time 3. M & M’s 4. 5 minutes of computer time 5. Chips Ahoy! Cookies 6. 5 minutes of drawing time 7.

PAUL UNIVERSITY ILOILO A thesis Presented to the Faculty St. Paul University Iloilo College of Accountancy and Business Partial fulfilment of the requirements for the degree Bachelor of Science in Business Administration Krizel Cava Janina Tan Mary Jun Sumagaysay Marisol Tabasin Joanna Paula Velete December 5, 2013 Introduction Learning styles originated in the 1970’s. They involve educating methods, particular to an individual that are presumed to allow that individual to learn best. It is commonly believed that most people favor some particular method of interacting with, taking in, and processing stimuli or information. It has been proposed that teachers should assess the learning styles of their students and adapt their classroom methods to best fit each student's learning style. (Wikipedia.org) The researchers chose this topic because the researchers want to know what different learning styles the third year College of Accountancy and Business students got used to. Understanding a particular learning style and how to best meet the needs of that learning style is essential to performing better in the classroom. Once a person has unlocked his learning style and discovered the best methods for helping him to learn through that style, he may be surprised to discover just how well he can flourish in the classroom, even in subjects that he previously......

Learning Preference Assessment

...Learning Preference Assessment Claudia Sanchez Grand Canyon University NRS-429V-0103 July 13, 2014 Learning Preference Assessment There are four different learning styles: visual, aural, reading/writing, and kinesthetic. Different people learn different ways; some are visual, some are aural, some are reader/writer, and some are kinesthetic learners. There are also people who have different degrees of combinations of the different learning styles. These learning styles preferences influence how people use different types of information to learn: some will learn better by observing, others by listening, others by reading or writing, and others by hands on practice, or any combination of these four. This paper analyzes the writer’s perceived preferred learning style by completing a questionnaire and compares it to the actual learning style or styles that the writer utilizes. Results of questionnaire After completing it, the questionnaire suggested that this writer’s learning preference is a combination of reading/writing and kinesthetic, with a score of 7 and 6 points respectively, while visual and aural obtained 2 and 1 points respectively (vark-learn.com). Reading/writing and kinesthetic study strategies The study strategies suggested by the website for the writer’s two strongest learning styles identified are: for reading/writing: taking and reading notes, changing information from diagrams and graphs to words, practicing with multiple choice questions, organizing......

Learning Preferences

...Learning Preferences Learning styles and preferences have great influence on the way an individual will learn. Your individual preferred learning styles “can guide the way you learn and change the way you internally represent experiences, the way you recall information, and even the words you choose” (Brown, 2003, para. 1). Learning styles group ways that people learn and describe strategies that help with learning. Some people find that they have one main style of learning. Others will find that they use different styles in different circumstances. There is no right or wrong style. By being able to recognized and understand your personal learning preferences, you can use strategies better suited to you. This will improve the speed and quality of your learning experiences. The VARK learning styles questionnaire is a tool that can help learners identify their preferred learning styles. VARK learning styles, consist of four styles of learning preferences. Visual learning (pictures, movies, diagrams), auditory learning (music, discussion, lectures), reading and writing (making lists, reading textbooks, taking notes), and kinesthetic learning (movement, experiments, hands-on activities) complete these styles (Cherry, 2014). After completing the VARK questionnaire the author discovered that her prefer learning style was multimodal. Aural and read-write were equally strong focuses for her, which VARK puts into the category multimodal (Fleming, 2011). An aural or auditory......

Preference for a Learning Environment and Academic Performance of Students in a Selected College of Nursing

...CHAPTER I THE PROBLEM Introduction Learning environment refers to the physical characteristics of the surroundings of the students when learning. These may vary depending on environmental elements such as sound, light, temperature, and design (Tenedero, 2009). Sound is the first element of the learning environment. Most students are contented with only one sound inside the classroom. This sound refers to the teacher’s voice - explaining the lesson, giving out instructions or assignments, or scolding a student or the entire class (Tenedero, 2009). Some learners prefer total silence or minimum sound because sound acts as a distraction to their effective learning (Senge, 2006). A study done by an American, named James Wallace (2008), mentioned that Filipino students prefer a quiet environment rather than having music or other sounds when studying. However, there are researches which showed that many students prefer to listen to a lecture or study on their own with some background music on because it makes them more receptive to learning (Tenedero, 2009). Light is the second element of the learning environment. Brighter lightings can reduce visual problems, fatigue, and posture problems and produce effective learning which helps improve students’ academic performance (Jensen, 2006). However, research also shows that there are many students who perform significantly better in low light environments because bright lights make them restless, fidgety, and hyperactive. Dimmed...

Mobile Preference

...mobile phones in India grew 3.6 percent to reach 40 million units during the quarter ended Sep 30, according to IDC’s India quarterly mobile handsets tracker, 3Q 2010. According to the study, Finnish handset maker Nokia had the largest share of 31.5 percent in terms of units shipped during the quarter. While the emerging vendors captured 41.2 percent combined share of the market. Chinese brand ‘G’Five’ followed Nokia in terms of units shipped share and Korean handset manufacturer Samsung occupied the third position. The study also showed a strong quarter on quarter growth in Smartphone sales of 34.2 percent, and a year on year rise of 294.9 percent. This clearly underscores that India mobile handset buyers have started showing higher preference for Smartphone. Thanks to increased competition, the prices of the Smartphone also dropped through the year. Over 80 percent of total Smartphone sales were below the average sales value of Rs.18, 000 in the second quarter of the year while this proportion increased to 90 percent in the third quarter. ‘The India mobile handsets market got even more crowded and fragmented in the lower- and mid-market segments with the further entry of new players offering innovative models at attractive price points to lure buyers,’ said Anirban Banerjee, associate vice president, research, IDC India. ‘The propensity to adopt feature phones and Smartphone is greatest amongst the youth and business executive segments, whose purchase decisions are often...

I would choose Experimental psychology for my subfield. I believe it would relate to my fear of public speaking. The Experimental psychology is pertaining to all basic psychological process including perception, learning and motivation. My main fear of public speaking is based of the perception of others.

Consumer Preference

...of the entire setting of the store/outlet on the emotional reaction of the customers and their approach to purchase and loyalty, when all components of the store environment traditionally identified by music, lighting, colour, smell, temperature, decorative, etc. come into play together, is limited. Problem Statement: Theoretical frameworks to adequately determine the effect of surrounding or store ambiance in consumer behaviour are lacking which leads managers to depend on their intuitions while designing the store area. This leads to a selection of specific design without knowing the effect of that design on consumer preference. Such selections are vulnerable and may not give the desired outcome in terms of customer preference. Research Question: The aim of the research is to determine the components of store ambiance that influence the customer preference and to understand and establish the relationship of customers’ behaviour on these components of store ambiance....

...Preferences I like my sense of humor, my friendliness, my dedication toward things and imagination. I like my ability to help others and give worthy advice. I hate I have ever hurt people when I never meant to, being dishonest at times and mistakes I have made in the past. I hate manipulating people and those who are not straight forward. I will be discussing the personality trait of being straight forward. This is a trait that I believe I possess and something I like very much. The subfield that this like fits in is personality psychology. Personality psychology puts together the pieces of the person--perceptions, thoughts, motives emotions, relationships--into one unified picture of the whole person. The three major kinds of puzzle pieces, thinking, feelings, and behavior are what personality psychologists are trying to explain, and we do this by referring to consistent patterns of thoughts and feelings that give rise to behaviors. But the relations between thinking, feelings, and behavior are not always as straight forward. People can show similar behaviors for many different reasons. Also we are not always perfectly consistent in our personalities. And the inconsistencies among our thoughts, feelings and behaviors are the puzzling part of the personality puzzle. Engaging the personality trait of being straight forward affects my state of consciousness in a positive way. By being straight forward one can avoid many pitfalls of negative personality traits, such as,......

Predicting Preferences

...Predicting Preferences Prediction involves making a statement concerning the likely value of an event or action uncertain or unknown at the time of the statement. Since the theory of probability, (inaugurated by the French mathematicians Blaise Pascal and Pierre Fermat in 1654), was developed to quantify uncertain events in terms of their likelihood of occurrence, formal prediction is now viewed as a mathematical topic involving probabilistic modeling. Indeed, the mathematician Karl Pearson said in 1907 that the fundamental problem in statistics is prediction. Prediction, however, is usually not an end goal itself, but rather means to put probabilistic bounds on the relative frequency or likelihood of occurrence of future uncertain events so that strategies or actions can be taken incorporating these predictions. Risk management needs predictive analysis, as does economic regulation, engineering control, and marketing effectiveness. This latter use of prediction often involves predicting an individual’s choice (or group’s choice) or preference over alterative options. Preference can be conceptualized as an individual’s (or group’s) attitude concerning a set of objects, and is usually formulated within a choice making context (i.e., X is preferred to Y if one would choose X over Y). In this way choice and preference are linked, and predicting preferences is akin to predicting choices. An auxiliary question is to formulate models that explain “why” or “how” the......
