is very much a part of the funhouse effect as these shows reflect the current image portrayed by reality stars while altering American’s image of what is socially acceptable. Since the use of technology is so commonplace in American households, people enjoy the instant gratification of following others, especially celebrities, on “reality” shows.

A personality disorder is a psychological abnormality that is defined by the characteristics of being unusually extreme, very problematic, and a tendency to have behaviors that affect social relationships. In addition to these symptoms, an individual may be ego-syntonic, viewing everyone except themselves as the issue. These symptoms are diagnosed at an early age, and if found they will possibly affect them in early adulthood. Tom Cruise, a well- known Hollywood celebrity, can be classified as possessing a personality disorder.

I believe people have basic behaviors that they are born with, but also that we as humans also learn from the people (or animals) around us, just as Oxana did. We model certain behaviors. For example, growing up in a household with my mother, I picked up some of her characteristics. When I am mad, I become impulsive and say the first things that come to mind, without thinking of the consequences. Also, I tend to be somewhat of a “neat freak” when it comes to my living space.
Hi Adrian, I am completely convinced and thinking on the same way like you too. Often advertisers are targeting on the consumers ' mentality and emotions because human have the tendency to follow trends. Besides, we love to see if there is any famous celebrity or expert is using the product too because we believe if the rich or influential people is using it, it must be somewhat effective. For example of Kim Kardashian 's effect, most of the women are willing to try on "Quick Slim"; they just want to be like her; good body shape. So persona is definitely play a big part in rhetoric that chosen by
A type of awareness, a sort of restriction, and the centre of attention, are just a few of the descriptions attached to a surgical mask out of its context. Amongst students and strangers, this participant observation proved to be somewhat an intriguing experiment. Including both offensive and sincere reactions towards one wearing the surgical mask, the experience provided, captivates the opinions/ judgements made by others, creating a sort of self-insecurity. Thus, proving that a simple unfamiliarity creates a total curiosity, an ordinary becomes unfamiliar purely due to situation. A surgical mask is a form of prevention towards airborne diseases, indicating either a potential risk or the individual wearing the mask possibly having contracted
For decades, many children grew up watching Jackie Chan and Bruce Lee. They both became well-established in the industry for their abilities in various forms of self-defense and attacks as they would perform many these unbelievable stunts alone. Although many people give a positive reaction seeing action through skilled fighting techniques, this has created an attached image to many Asians in society. Numerous of Hollywood castings seek physical backgrounds from these particular clients — “‘now the flipside of stereotyping is that every Asian American actor is expected to know some form of martial arts,’ Tisa Chang, director of the Pan Asian Repertory Theatre in New York, told ABC News”(Nittle). On many occasions, Asians are in the spotlight when the storyline resonance with what many people depict this race as.
There are many different careers in the world. Each of them offer various amounts of financial gain, with each one being unique in tasks. I am greatly interested in the field of performing arts, which means a lot to me. It is a difficult field to get into and be successful in, but performing arts is the only path I have been genuinely interested in long-term. I aspire to one day become a model, actress and singer.
As a result, we often change our memory so they are more sensible to us.” In his experiment, Bartlett told a person a story. Then, the person he told told another person, and so on. It was like a game of telephone. Each time, the story changed in some way. So how does this tie into eyewitness accounts in court?
An experiment which perfectly showed this phenomenon was done by Chartrand and Bargh in 1999, who showed there is a natural tendency for people to mimic other people’s behaviors which is known as Chameleon Effect. [ Bernard Carl Rosen 2001 Masks and Mirrors: Generation X and the Chameleon Personality p13-14] In 1999, two psychologists in New York University decided to research the question that whether people would automatically copy other people’s actions even they are strangers? Whether doing such actions would enhance their affection between each other and whether people who tend to open to others will display such kind of actions more than others? The first experiment they did is they found 78 people and each person who have a talk face to face with the confederate. The confederate would employ different kinds of actions during the talking, such as smiling, touching their face, shaking the leg, foot waggling etc.
Gladwell also made a point that the place you are from, your background, and culture has a lot to do with your success. My point of view on this could go either way because there is an equal amount of things I agree and disagree with. There are many people on this world who were just plain out born successful. Either someone they know or their family were very rich. I believe this is how most people are indeed doing very well, but they still need to apply themselves in some way.
So by doing this you could be facing pros and cons. One of the reasons athletes should be paid is by they are working very hard to bring success to your program. By doing that they are dedicating their life to the sport just to bring success to your program. You could argue saying “ all athletes should be paid then.” But if we do allow to pay athletes there needs to be a rule saying that the “main” attraction to that sport needs to be the one getting paid. So it would just be the “star” or “stars” of the team.
