This is an indefinable concept in sociology even though he integrated it as an aspect in his model of alienation (Seeman, 1959). Many researchers along with Karl Marx consider self-estrangement to be the end result and enjoy a decisive part of social alienation. Besides this, self-estrangement can be defined as “the psychological state of denying one’s own interests – of seeking out extrinsically satisfying, rather than intrinsically satisfying, activities...” (Kalekin & Fisherman, 2006). In addition, self-estrangement could be explained as a feeling of becoming a stranger to oneself, wholly or partially, or alternatively as a problem of self-knowledge, or
Festinger replaced the term “consonance” instead of consistency and “dissonance” instead of inconsistency. Dissonance is very powerful when we are doing something that against what our belief tell us. Cognitive dissonance is a very powerful motivator which will often lead us to change one or other of the conflicting belief or action. Aristotle says that, human being is a social animal that has different conflicting shades in its personality, taught process, conducting patterns and executing preferences. When conflict occurs, if it is not powerful enough to be solved, people will tend to avoid and stay away from the problem and this might increase the level of conflicts and discomfort.
What accounts for the divergent and intriguing results observed in this recent research? Although within-person analyses appear to be essential to reveal the negative self-efficacy effect, it seems untenable to conclude that all positive effects of self-efficacy on performance observed in the vast body of existing research are little more than artifacts of between-persons methodology. As Bandura and Locke (2003) noted, the voluminous research on self-efficacy has utilized varied methodologies, including designs in which self-efficacy was experimentally altered both between persons and within persons. With few exceptions, these studies have found self-efficacy to positively relate to subsequent performance. These results, when considered alongside those reported by Vancouver and colleagues (Vancouver & Kendall, 2006; Vancouver et al., 2002, 2001), highlight the variable nature of the self-efficacy and performance relationship, as both positive and negative relationships have been observed even among studies conducted at the within-person level of analysis.
Moreover, it used to establish hypotheses to link each construct. The concept of the dynamic capability theory views the firm as unique resources capabilities that, if employed in distinctive ways, can create competitive advantage. Dynamic capabilities can be defined as ‘the ability to integrate, build, and reconfigure internal and external competencies to address rapidly-changing environments. The concept of dynamic capabilities arose from a key shortcoming of the resource-based view of the firm. The RBV has been criticized for ignoring factors surrounding resources, instead assuming that they simply “exist”.
The research has started building in this area, since the time of this case. The findings in this experiment allow us to see that one of the main factors playing a role in the misinformation effect is temporal misinformation. Sequencing and stringing together events and then being able to pick up on details is much more difficult to do than identifying objects. The article suggests that a lot more research has to be conducted to clearly understand the source of the misinformation effect, but they have started piecing things together. Although eyewitness testimony is reliable sometimes it may not be, as more research comes together, the process has to become fool-proof
The major factors in the adaptive process and the way these factors relate to one another to facilitate adaptive work are not clearly delineated. The third weakness is that it can be called out for is being too wide ranging and abstract. For example, the approach suggests that leaders should protect leadership voice from below, but it is difficult to interpret what these means. The last criticism of adaptive leadership is that it hints at but does not directly explain how adaptive leadership incorporates a moral dimension. This leadership style focuses on how people evolve and grow through change, but the way evolution of value leads to a greater common good is not fully explained (Northhouse, 2016).
Cognitive dissonance theory has a long history in social psychology (O’Leary, n.d). Cognitive dissonance is consumed when a person holds two contradictory beliefs and or when having a belief that is unrelated with an action that the person has chosen unreservedly to present (O’Leary, n.d). With this situation, this is where the individual have feelings of discomfort and tries to change one of the beliefs or behaviors to keep away from being not consistent(O’Leary, n.d). Also, hypocrisy is a form of cognitive dissonance because it is introduced when the individual freely chooses to demonstrate a behavior that they do not practice themselves (O’Leary, n.d). The cognitive dissonance scenario I chosen to discuss is about a lady named Coral and
Cognitive restructuring is a core concept of CBT , which is defined as the process of identifying core maladaptive beliefs and correcting them by generating more adaptive alternative modes of thinking (Clark and Beck, 2010; Holtforth et al., 2006 This component of CBT is seen as very important as often our thinking in relation to environment or situations can lead on to quite distressing emotions, physical feelings and behaviour which is in keeping with these feelings. Research journals have noted however that despite the absence of cognitive restructuring in BA that Cognitive changes were evident following a successful course of BA. (Jacobson et al
The ideas of mine didn’t correspond to what was happening, and the process of self-justification took place. Thus, I came to realize that I would, probably, be able to handle Energy sources if putting enough efforts. And my answer to the question of my friends modified too. “Well, the course is difficult indeed, but if you work hard and want to know more about power plants and the way they operate, it is worth taking.” As the theory suggests, one changes the evaluation of the task after getting even a little reward. In this respect, my grade was my reward which changed my perception of Energy sources.
While change is necessary once in a while and will bring out good to the company, it will always to be subject to some form of resistance. What should be understood is that resistance is not a barrier to change but a force that makes it difficult to implement change. As barriers always create a gap between the current and recommended practices; conducting a baseline assessment is a supreme idea to identify present-day and potential barriers. 1) Lack of flexibility and adaptability of
