Personal values can affect research in the sense that we all have our own personal values. One may misinterpret the study’s findings just on values alone. In regards to my study, I will have to try to leave bias out of my research and take into account that not everyone has the same point of view when it comes to identity. Overall, I believe by using this approach, will help me understand why we pretend to be someone we are not in order to fit in with the crowd during
In an article, Warren stated that “We tend to judge ourselves by our intentions and others by their actions” (Warren 1). This is because no one can truly know what a person 's motives are, but they can know their own intentions. It is easier to conclude an idea of a person based on what one can see and know for sure. A person can have good intentions, but the outcome may turn out unfavorable, knowing the final action is simpler to judge because it can be known for sure. Warren also stated that “If we judged ourselves by how our actions are perceived by others, we may become more sensitive and understanding of any hurtful responses by them” (Warren 1).
Many have debated about the psychological aspect of what makes us human. Some say that human nature and the mind can be influenced by the world around us. Whether it be physical or social influences in our environment, they both play a role in the development of our thoughts, actions, and emotions. People, like Nicholas Carr and John Locke, have put thought into what they believe is their point of view of the mind. Both Carr and Locke share a similar idea of the mind which is that experiences are the foundations of the mind.
However, even if initially people are making attributions to someone’s internal state, they can change this way of thinking and recognize outside situations. Only if someone is not distracted, because it involves a conscious effort to change these thoughts. Gilbert’s theory argues often people do not get to situational attributions if they are not able to cognitively because of distractions or they do not have the information to infer a situation affected the behavior. However, many people, as Wallace states, may not get to this step in the model because they simply do not care to see outside themselves at that moment. It can be extremely difficult for people to see past their own situation in the first place, especially in irritating situations like heavy traffic or a busy grocery store.
I believe that power is something people will obey because they know if they don’t do it that something bad will happen. Power will make people act differently to others and people can see that. When you act different people can tell that something is going on. I wouldn’t want people know that I got a raise if they have been there longer than me. That is just disrespectful and I wouldn’t want to do that.
Introduction Does someone really use psychological defense mechanisms to protect their ego, the side that is not fully conscious yet is aware of reality? Some people may use Sigmund Freud’s defense mechanisms more than others, but they may be used for many different reasons. They could be trying to fit into society or simply living their day to day life while protecting their ego at the same time. At one point in everyone’s life, they will have a feeling that is similar to one of these ways to protect themselves. This could be in an action of blaming others simply so they don’t get into trouble themselves, trying to find reasons to avoid a situation, possibly in school or simply out in public and maybe even trying to change their identity simply
Additionally, this ability to understand and accommodate equips the individual with the power to utilize their personal emotions and personality advantages to comprehend and regulate with others they interact with. Alternatively, the Trait model is so dependent on the personality of an individual in order to evaluate emotional quotient, some believe the Trait model does not have the legitimacy to assess emotional quotient. It is believed that the Trait model is better off within the groundwork of cognitive-emotional ability. However, this model does include elemental factors that correlate with emotional intelligence.

Culture can help us build a community that involves people who have the same beliefs and agree on certain subjects. However, culture can also create discrimination and otherness. Sometimes, we “other” people just because we do not understand their culture or because their beliefs are different from ours. The act of “othering” can often lead to conflicts or misunderstandings. So we have to ask ourselves, is there a way for us to preserve and respect a culture without othering
This quote from the Diary of Anne Frank supports the claim of accepting each other’s differences because people cannot just judge a person by the way they look, but by the way their personality grooves with yours. Accepting each other’s differences is a great way to respond to conflict because it allows violence to simmer down in a time of conflict. There are many different ways to respond to conflict, but only our true identities determine if we completely resolve these conflicts or
In some instances the person is asked to do something for others. But the person would sometimes realize that a bad consequence in his side could happen if he follows the favor of the other person. This is where the person can say no without any if's or but's, while still reasoning out why he would commit the act of selfishness. The person would have to be assured that the other people would completely understand his decisions and reasons behind doing the selfish act. Making reasons for doing a selfish act is usually done in order to maintain healthy relationships with others despite having had done the act of selfishness already.
