Lisa Owens’ Personality (Trinity) Assessments Summary Is the information accurate? Why or Why not? According to Lisa, the information from the MBTI, DISC personality profile and Holland code was quite accurate. Lisa indicated that the summary results of the MBTI (INFJ) were rather descriptive of her personality Although Lisa is relationship oriented, her experiences growing up in the foster care system, has resulted to her being mistrustful of others and can be detached, isolated from others when she is emotionally overwhelmed. As for careers, although Lisa has previously worked in service industry, she likes working in areas where she can help others; she is currently working on her nursing degree.
I’ve looked at families, friendships and romance. I’ve studied schools, universities and workplaces” (Turkle). Her great success as a psychologist shows the credibility of her work. It also implies that she knows a lot about the subject she is forming an opinion over because she preformed high quality research before forming an opinion over the
Though she has made a poor decision in the business world, she was capable of overcoming her problem and moving passed it for the better. As proven, Fiorina accomplished many achievements for the company of Hewlett-Packard exactly like she is planning on for the country of America. Many candidates may argue that they have what it takes to provide for the
In today’s society, we learn about many things, including ourselves, in the media, primarily through television and movies. We learn about what we dislike, what we like, what scares us, and mostly how the media portrays someone who is male, female, transgender, etc.. According to Aulette and Wittner (2012), “Television is a primary source of images of gender. Gender can be portrayed in a range of ways, but two kinds of images are dominant: hegemonic masculinity and emphasized femininity” (pg. 397).
This motivation brings very effective result on the performance of women who have their role models. Further studies shows that it is not necessary that the role model should be very famous personality, they can be chosen from school, college or from group level too, who has performed well in the science, technology, engineering, and maths (STEM) fields. It was further observed that the women performed better in the same gender group rather than in mixed group when their performance was evaluated about their mathematical skills. Role models can help female students in their college or school and can retain them in STEM subjects. It has also been observed that the presence of women in faculty, teaching assistance, or in labs etc also motivates them to pursue their career in stem
As an African American woman entering the field of computer engineering, I realize that diversity is a crucial aspect in order to accelerate technological solutions. An engineering team with similar thought processes and backgrounds will achieve far less than their culturally aware counterparts. Representation matters. Occasionally it is difficult for me to look around a room – to look around a career field – and see a very small amount of people representing my gender and ethnic group. However, this issue does not deter me in any way; in fact, it serves as quite the catalyst.
Do you perceive her as healthy/insane? I feel a little bit of sympathy towards Andrea Yates, but not so much. The reason is because although Andrea did have mental problems which must have been hard to deal with while taking care of kids I do still believe she was still fully capable of understanding that her actions were wrong. Andrea lived a normal life and showed promise that she would lead a successful life. Andrea grew up with loving parents, she got good grades, and she was liked by everybody, and had a career going for her as a nurse.
Clearly they were more suited for handling the typewriter than men by nature combined with the fact that they were eager to work despite the significantly smaller wage. What Hake demonstrates in his article is how this mechanical creation was “the perfect ticket” for a rather enjoyable, suitable work environment and profession for women during the second half of the 19th century. It might not have been created specifically for women social process, but this does not change the fact that either directly or indirectly the large accumulation of typewriters in most offices was something that women were naturally better and more eager to deal with. It is because of this eagerness to work in an office, in addition to the preference for women by the employers that the typewriter brought that would eventually bring about social change and a more equal office environment for
The reading that best supports this view is the Laura Mulvey reading “visual pleasure and narrative cinema” (Mulvey 1975). Although this reading is dated it does raise some interesting issues with regards to gender representation in cinema. Mulvey discusses the male gaze in cinema and outlines how woman are portrayed on screen from a male view point. She discusses how this could influence media in such a way that it may lead to the female section of the society to be misrepresented. The mention of scopophilia in Mulvey’s study is focused mainly on females and it is outlined that in most films by most directors the woman is the object of desire or the damsel in distress.
This strong display of her intellect is such an uncommon trait to be written for someone of a lower class, much less a black woman. With Marquez being a known liberal, it can be inferred that this was intentional and designed in such a way to portray how the future is in those who are ignored. He writes a poor, at the time young, black woman to be the one to revitalize a company, doing what an old, upper-class man could not. This is such a self-evident
Mama believes that students should attain knowledge about racism, slavery, and segregation even though it’s not taught in the book. She calls these subjects “radical” subjects as they relate to most of her student’s lives. Mama believes that learning about their true past is more important than learning the biased version taught in the books. This act gets Mama caught and fired. Even though Mama had gotten fired for the subjects she taught her students, she did not regret her actions.
It is with great pleasure that I recommend Katrina Schwartz. She is a hardworking and kind individual who has demonstrated strong ability and talent throughout her high school career. Katrina’s talents extend beyond the classroom. Not one to just sit back and let life pass her by, she is involved both in and outside of school. Although quite modest, Katrina is a student that is well liked and admired by her peers, as well as her teachers.
Nova wants to be a detective someday, which sort of fits perfectly with the situation she is thrown into. She is smart, fierce, vulnerable, and thick skinned all at the same time. I actually really liked her even though I had a hard time getting into her head at first. When you have such a developed character, like Nova, the little things that would normally bother me had absolutely no effect. Sure, I still got annoyed with her sometimes, but it no was nowhere near the scale of making me want to quit the book like some others have before There were so many great characters all packed into this one story, I think Kelly deserves some serious acknowledgement for that
But for Serena she just wants to win, and that was her main focus. Just because Serena Williams is a “black women” (Claudia) she is seen to portray a certain type of image in “white America” because she is in the public eye, and on the flip side she overpowers her white competitors. But of course, once recognized, black excellence is then supposed to perform with good manners and forgiveness in the face of any racist indifference or violations. Even on her worst days media reports can put down Serena Williams but that will never stunt her growth as one of the worlds best tennis players or take any of her talents away. Through injuries, sickness, training, and harsh name-callings Serena has showed the world why she is one of the top tennis players.
