3. What key concepts or “constructs” are used to explain your personality?

The key concept I chose to explain my personality would have to independence. I was raised by a single mother with hardly any family. She taught me that I was responsible for my actions, nothing would be handed to me, and that I had to work for what I wanted. I learned early on through my independence to appreciate all that I receive and all that I earn. That is why I believe I chose persistence and hardworking as personality traits in the previous question. If I did not know something or if I wanted something, persistence and hard work would step in and assist in retrieving the knowledge required to complete any task.

5. Have you ever taken a personality test before? If so, what was your reaction to the analysis? If not, what would you expect a proper test to measure?

I have never taken nor have I ever thought to take a personality test until this question. But now curiosity is settling in and I would definitely like to try and take a test just to see what the results would be. I expect a proper test would measure that I have overall a great personality. I suspect it would reflect the personality traits that I pointed out earlier of being a hard worker, friendly, and persistent. If it should show otherwise, it may start some personal searching within to either agree with it or to make changes if I don’t like its results.

6. What would make a personality test reliable and valid?

I would say that a personality test is reliable and valid if its results are consistent. I would like to compare this to jumping on a weight scale, let us say if you were to jump on a scale and it reads 190 pounds. Then step off and step back on the scale. If it reads 190 pounds again then it is consistent therefore reliable and…...

To Work or Not to Work

...To work or not to work – That is the question: Whether ‘Tis politer in the mind to tolerate the insults And listen to the complaints of annoying customers, Or to resign from my job entirely And by quitting, rest or study for school. To work, to quit— No more—and by showing up to work I face The same old same old preparations for customers That each day holds.—‘Tis a situation I do not wish to face. To work, to quit— To quit, perhaps to rest. Ay, there’s the problem, For in quitting what events may come about When we have no money to have fun Must make us all think. That’s the thought That makes disaster of an invite to a Girls Night Out. For who really wants to work a long 8 hour shift, Deal with the annoyance of refolding clothes, the crabby managers, The disappointment of an empty break room, the cheapness of supplies, The overly dramatic co-worker, and the grimacing looks That the customers send my way when looking at their totals, When they too, may work And go through the same things I have to? Who would want this, To walk in the same exact steps every day, But the dread of being broke, The thought of spending weekends alone or The realization of the fact that we don’t have a life, Wishing that we did have some sort of job for cash Instead of seeking those wasted days of being lazy? Thus the chance of missing out on a fun night does make us want to work, And thus happiness of being with friends Is tainted by thoughts of how I cannot afford...

...assault, threatening or coercive behavior that causes physical or emotional harm in a work setting (Rai, 2002). Aggression at workplace can also be to show or as a result of dissatisfaction and disapproval to other’s action. Violence is defined by the World Health Organization as the intentional use of physical force or power, threatened or actual, against a person, or against a group or community that either results in or has a high likelihood of resulting in injury, death, psychological harm, mal-development or deprivation. Workplace violence is an action or incident that physically or psychologically harms another person. It includes situations where employees and other people are threatened, attacked or physically assaulted at work (Department of Health, 2004). It ranges from threats and verbal abuse to physical assaults and even homicide. It can affect and involve employees, clients, customers and visitors. Violence is aggression; however aggression does not necessarily imply violence. When people talk about workplace violence they may be referring to a range of hostile acts – from threats and intimidation to homicide.. Workplace aggression includes violent acts as well as nonviolent acts such as harassment, intimidation, and threats that create a hostile work environment. Aggression can occur at the organizational level and a person might act aggressively based on factors of changes in the work environment, job changes, or injustice. If a person feels that they are......

...During an interview before a live audience in the KLRU studio in 2010, Evan Smith, editor of the Texas Tribune, put his chin in his hand and asked Gov. Rick Perry: "Governor, why does Texas continue with abstinence education programs when they don't seem to be working? In fact, we have the third-highest teen pregnancy rate in the country, among all the states." "Abstinence works," Perry replied, his arms folded and resting on the table be-tween them. Smith tried again – the point of the question, he said, was that abstinence education, by the stats, doesn't exactly seem to be working. It does work, Perry replied; it's the "best form ... to teach our children," he said. "Can you give me a statistic suggesting it works?" Smith asked. I Heart Pants abstinence website "I'm sorry, I'm just going to tell you ... from my own personal life, abstinence works," said Perry, increasingly agitated. "If the point is ... we're going to stand up here and say, 'Y'all go have sex and have the whatever is going on ... and here's the ways to have safe sex' – I'm sorry; call me old-fashioned if you want, but that's not what I'm going to stand up in front of the people in the state of Texas and say, 'That's the way we need to go, and forget about abstinence.'" Of course, neither Smith nor anyone else was asking the governor to "forget about abstinence," but the truth, say advocates for adolescent health, including doctors and educators, is that teaching "abstinence only" has not worked to...

...Anyone looking to work in the restaurant business shouldn’t be expecting to just walk in and know exactly what they are doing. I run food, which sounds easy at first, but after awhile it becomes an extreme pain in the butt. Something as simple as giving food to a customer can become utterly annoying. I learned many things through working in restaurant. “It’s dog eat dog world”. This sentence reminds me how hard to keep restaurant business. One of the biggest misconception about the restaurant business is that people seem to think it’s easy -going. I can say one thing for sure, a popular restaurant will never be an easy-going restaurant, but working at a popular restaurant is the only way to make any sort of money. making money in a restaurant can often become competitive. For the servers and food runners, it’s all about making money, so it is inevitable that some workers are going to butt heads. Sometimes, I find myself hustling over to a table of people before another one of my workers can get there, it’s almost laughable but that’s just the way it works. Some might even go as far to say that the business is “dog eat dog” amongst the workers. It really is simple, whoever waits on the most tables is going to make the most money. Don’t get me wrong though, a server could wait on the most tables all night, but if their service isn’t good the amount of money they makes will be minimized....

...pERSONAL SKILLS Hardworking and patient: Employees who are hardworking and get lots of work done will make an impression on their employer and be valued as opposed to employees who spend a lot of time talking, answering their mobile phones or surfing the net during work hours. Take care not to get distracted by chatting and answering private calls. Patience is also a good quality particularly if you are dealing with customers or members of the public. Good interpersonal skills: INTERPERSONAL skills enable us to get on with other people, promote positive relationships in the workplace and enable the job to be done better or more efficiently. Some people are naturally good at getting on with others and encouraging colleagues, but IT IS POSSIBLE TO LEARN GOOD INTERPERSONAL SKILLS. These skills will make you MORE EMPLOYABLE and will enable you to do a better job of work.

When someone is speaking you should be thinking about what is being said; does it sound reasonable; pick out the main points and summarise them in your mind. You must concentrate on the words being spoken and try to put other thoughts and distractions out of......

...The Organization of Work The Nature and Organization of Work With the onset of the Industrial Revolution and the emergence of the practice of the division of labor and the emphasis on specialization, factories and company-owned industries had to employ hundreds and thousands of workers whom the owner or the manager does not know personally. The relationship between the entrepreneur (capital) and the workers (labor) is remote and impersonal, so lacking the “human touch”. Sociologist are intensely interested in the study of the interactive and interrelation between the employer and the employee and between an employee as he relates with other employees. Since, the worker is not a mere ”machine” but a human being, he has to satisfy his social needs. Workers do not confine their lives only to their place of work. They have families. And as communities were formed, large industries eventually surfaced. Status, roles and social mobility, as well as social organizations and social interrelationships, are important aspects of community life. This community situation, both inside and outside the factory, has given rise to an important development in sociology which many refer to as Industrial Sociology (Espiritu, 1979). This is also known as the organization of work. It is associated with organizational problems such as workers’ morale, productivity, absenteeism, and turn-over rates. However, its main concern is not how management can solve organizational problems. As discipline,......

...M1- Explain the value of three different resources in the preparation of the complex piece of work. D1- Evaluate the three resources in terms of validity. In this assignment I am going to be talking about a complex piece of work that I have already done for an assignment, and I will be explaining the value of 3 different resources and evaluating the 3 sources in terms of validity. The 3 resources that I am going to be talking about are: the internet, a text book, and NHS facts. I found all of these resources useful in different ways, and also reliable in different ways. I chose these particular resources because I have many opinions about them, some good, some bad. The mix of opinions is good because I can discuss both sides, and have a good balance between the opinions. The internet The source that I will be talking about first is the internet. The use of the internet helped me a lot with the assignment, this is because I was easily able to just search up what I needed to and then was able to put it into my own words and add it into my piece of work. I think that it also made my work better because I knew that the websites I was using were reliable and all the information in them was correct. And I think that this made my work good because I knew the information was correct and knew that I didn’t put anything in that was incorrect. Another way that it helped to support my work was that it was quick and easy, it gave me the answers straight away, and I didn’t have to......
