The Turn of the Screw by Henry James follows the story of a governess who takes care of the children Miles and Flora. The issue regarding the reliability of the governess as the narrator has been debated due to her “interactions” with the supernatural world. However, the governess is insane throughout The Turn of the Screw because the ghosts she sees are hallucinations; she shows irrational behavior towards the children; and she is obsessed with getting approval from others such as her employer and the children.

“The Veldt” is a short story by Ray Bradbury. This story can be analyzed using a Marxist and psychoanalytical perspective. For both of these perspectives, the main evidence is found in the kids and their relationship with their parents. For Marxist, “The Veldt” shows how the family relationship reveals the oppression of the lower class and their battle to become the new upper class. The structure of power in this can be connected to the power struggle of today’s society. As for the psychoanalytical perspective, “The Veldt” reveals the author unconscious feelings towards his class and wealth that was never dealt with when he was a kid.

n this world, there are many cases in which a person may have a mental disorder that is undetected by the person itself . In the case of Holden Caulfield, the main protagonist in “ The Catcher in The Rye” by J.D Salinger, he suffers from an anxiety disorder that is commonly know as PTSD. This stands for post-traumatic stress disorder in which an individual gets after the result of a traumatic event that occurred to them by either experiencing it or witnessing it themselves.

The question of free will and external causes comes to our point of view of human nature and the way we deal with universal laws of nature on the one hand, while the other side involves a transcendental component such as a deity. In this case, we must distinguish the external and internal causes of the action. Probable internal causes can involve one's emotions, habits, traits and other unconscious tendencies of action. Wegner states that whenever we become aware of one of these unconscious tendencies, we may lose some of the feelings of will, despite having timely thoughts before action. On the other hand, there are probable external causes for action involving other people or external forces that strike us even when we carefully contemplate
Porter states that whenever a new entrant enters an industry, they put pressure on prices, costs, and the rate of investment necessary to compete for companies already within that industry. This in turn “puts a cap on the profit potential of an industry.” (Porter, 2008) Porter also points out that there are seven barriers which new entrants much look at. The first barrier is the supply side economies of scale. “Supply-side scale economies deter entry by forcing the aspiring entrant either to come into the industry on a large scale, which requires dislodging entrenched competitors, or to accept a cost disadvantage.” (Porter, 2008, p. 81) The second barrier is the demand-side benefits of scale. “Demand-side benefits of scale discourage entry by limiting the willingness of customers to buy from a newcomer and by reducing the price the newcomer can command until it builds up a large base of customers” (Porter, 2008, p. 81) The third barrier is the customer switching cost which are “fixed costs that buyers face when they change suppliers”. (Porter, 2008, p. 81) The fourth barrier is the Capital requirements. Many industries require large financial resources in order to compete such as the airline industry which would require billions to invest in. The fifth barrier is the Incumbency advantages independent of size. Porter believes that certain companies can have certain advantages over their rivals which are
Hypnosis has a storied past that dates back over 200 years. It was originally created by Franz Anton Mesmer, but the name was not coined until 1843. This mental state is something that you normally experience when daydreaming or when you lose track of time while driving. It is similar to your mental state when you are completely absorbed by a television show, book or sporting event. During hypnosis, your brain waves change so that you are alert, but relaxed enough to accept suggestions.
It is used to analyze five important forces that shape competition in the business world.
The authors of this article talks about a study in which they did on human fear conditioning through neuroimaging. They evaluated the brain activity under numerous mixture rates between conditioned and unconditioned stimulus. An introduction of an attentional-associative that house emotional fear or fear memory. The anterior cingulate cortex may be part of the development of fear which includes traces of the fear memory. The activity in the amygdala and anterior cingulate cortex signifies the prediction of the unconditioned stimulus. While the activity in the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex and insula model was introduced by Schmajuk, Lam and Gray through computer simulations. This showed the activity in the amygdala and anterior cingulate cortex. The amygdala is a critical region of the brain captured by a variable coding the attention modulated illustration of conditioned stimuli. The model explains how variables control behavior, and provides a clear outline in how the variables play a key role in the explanation of several predictable conditioning illustrations. This model also offers a number of calculations related to the stimulus innovation for future neuroimaging studies that is connected to associative learning.

Five forces allow industries to identify their external environment. We use Porter’s Five Forces to conduct an industry and competition analysis for Sony. We find that Sony faces high internal rivalry, high buyer power, low supplier power, and high threat from substitutes. The electronics and game industry has high barriers to entry. We are going to discuss each as follows:
In reading this chapter about Freud, I found that his concepts of defense mechanisms were the most relevant to my own personality. I can definitely apply this theory to my own experiences and my personality because I have used probably about all of these to express my emotions. I can tell from my own personality that whenever I use a defense mechanism, mostly the ones that have to do with expressing an emotion, I tend to feel better about the situation, even though it may only be for a few minutes. These defense mechanisms help me understand my personality in relation to how and why I express my emotions the way I do. I can think of various examples where I’ve used a defense mechanism and for the most part, I was doing them consciously and
