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, having to lie to make other people like you. By being straight forward you are not concerned with what others may think of you but are yourself regardless of others views. This makes your life easier hence contributing positively to your over all psychological well being. The role of learning the psychology subfield of personality psychology has put a light on the puzzle of personality traits.…...

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. In week two, after finishing the personal competency exercise, I learned that I am on the right path. The competency test stated that I was well organized, enjoyed......

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.

Career Preference

...there a 'right' way to study or 'best' way to teach. Teachers should also avoid the temptation to try to categorise or confine individual pupils to one learning style. Age, educational level, and motivation influence each pupil's learning so that what was once preferred may no longer be that pupil's current preferred learning style. Nevertheless, greater awareness of learning preferences and styles helps teachers to be more flexible in their teaching and to utilise a wider range of classroom methodologies. The aim is not to match teaching style to learner preferences, but to help young people build their skills and capacities to learn well in both preferred and less preferred modes of learning. The main messages for teachers, schools and learners are as follows. 1. Do not place too much faith in any one learning styles theory. Most are not very robust or reliable. A learning style should not be thought of as an absolute, nor should it be considered the main determinant of intelligence, ability or competence. 2. Most students have elements of more than one learning style. They may have a preference for one way of learning, but can also learn in other ways although it may be harder to do so. Knowing their preferred learning styles may help students develop strategies to compensate for weaknesses and build on strengths. 3. It is important that learners are able to make use of all their senses when gathering, processing and recalling information. This is particularly true......

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......

Writing Preferences

...for distinct common experience. Sports, music, food, fashion, and hobbies are all culture. The currency of culture is how and where you spend your time and money. Ethnicity is not an exclusive passport that lets you in or keeps you out of a culture. Given that culture is a choice, everyone — the white majority included — can choose to opt in. And while it is fine to share your culture, be careful not to superimpose it on others. As Korean American immigrant from Hawaii, I’ve felt a subtle yet strong pressure from “western business culture” to fake a passion for fine wine and French food, because that’s what well-educated professionals in America are supposed to enjoy consuming. But I didn’t grow up with these things, and I have other preferences. It wasn’t until I saw this as culture and a choice that I felt comfortable saying I enjoyed fermented Kim Chi as much as a fine French reduction For those of us who are minorities, recognizing that culture is a choice means being more inclusive. Authenticity is great, but adaptation can be great too. Everyone has the right to travel into new cultures should they choose to. And we as minorities should welcome them (and their dollars) in. The best place to reach consumers who are multicultural in demand, not just demographics, may be in majority minority cities and markets. Just as superconsumers have a network effect on those around them, living near a large ethnic group has a big influence on what you watch and buy. The bottom......

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...

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....

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......
