Emotional and cultural intelligence have a special relationship. The one’s self-awareness and empathy in emotional intelligence influences the cognitive aspect in cultural intelligence. It assists one in understanding which behaviors are acceptable in unfamiliar culture by analyzing emotional gestures. They also have empathetic for differences of culture. The self-motivation will maintain the one’s inspiration in exploring new culture.
Consumption In Aldous Huxley’s “Brave New World”, the concepts of consumerism and utopia are continuously compared and discussed in tandem with one another to decide if any correlation between them is present. Although people may argue that the humans belonging to the World State are happy, their lack of simple human pleasures such as love, religion, intellect, free will, etc, denies the people of actual joy. Since the government is what controls these pleasures by glorifying consumption, the World State’s culture and consumerism must interrelate. The government's control of common human experiences and characteristics such as love, pain, religion, and free will result in the total dependence on the state. Because World State knows how much
THESIS: As a product of society’s “equal” meritocracy, we must find a scale for our actions by comparing our successes and failures to others, creating status anxiety, resulting in our idea of success being relative to our peer’s success. We base our own self worth and value too much on the outside influences and how others view us. We can no longer look in the mirror and see ourselves as we are, we unconsciously compare ourselves to what is “perfect” is based on ideals from our friends, family, and the media. We are constantly being presented with the image of perfection and the steps and rules needed to achieve it. Success has become relative.
In social penetration, theory, Irwin Altman and Dalmas Taylor studied the differences in communication in relation to the depth of interpersonal relationships (McLean, 2012). Self-disclosure is integral to all stages of relationships, but changes over time. The nature and
Whippman first discusses the opposing, popular viewpoint that the attainment of happiness is a solitary journey, an “internal, personal quest” (Whippman, 2017). Subsequently, she presents her opinion that “our happiness depends on other people” (Whippman, 2017), with supporting evidence from studies and research. As such, Whippman appears to be more persuasive as she acknowledges that “self-reflection, introspection and some degree of solitude are important parts of a psychologically healthy life”, but also asserts that a balance is necessary, with greater emphasis on social interaction. (Whippman, 2017) In addressing possible opposing views and giving reasons for her disagreement, she is able to persuade those with different viewpoints to consider hers. On the other hand, Graves merely
Niccolò Machiavelli, Baldassare Castiglione and George Washington all had small factors of similarity within their interpretation of an ideal person, some more than others. Machiavelli valued the unpleasant truth, so that people would view the world with a notion of realism. He also always wanted to be in control and make his own decisions without anyone else's opinion to mar his idea of keeping authority with others. And he furthermore pushed the trait of fake sincerity. Instead of truthfully being honest, religious and merciful, he told one that you should fake it, so that when the time arrives, you can switch your personality.
Empathy is important in culture differences because it is about understanding and accepting another culture that is different with yours instead of judging the culture whether good or bad and adapts to the foreign culture. (Adler, 1991) Without understanding and accepting culture differences, it will form intercultural barriers such as ethnocentrism. (Donald B. Pope-Davis, 2013) Ethnocentrism is a social bias which views own culture is superior compared than others cultures. Every individual holds ethnocentric behaviors. The degree of ethnocentrism will influence one’s intercultural competence to communicate efficiently and successfully in social context.
“Find their sense of value vulnerable to the opinions of others” ( Lickerman,The Value Of A Good Reputation). The article, The value of a good reputation by Alex Lickerman contributes that reputations are based off how one's actions are perceived in society, reputations can motivate a person to act accordingly to what others value and see important. “ It's harder to build than to destroy.” (Lickerman, The Value Of A Good Reputation) Shakespeare displays this idea in Othello, if you're creating a false image of yourself it will be much harder to maintain that
For this section, I chose to talk about social exchange theory. The textbook says that social exchange theory “tries to answer the question of why some relationships develop and last and others don’t, and is based on an economic model of profits and losses” (DeVito, 2017, p. 232). The scene that I am using for this theory is from minute 35 to minute 39. During this scene, Bertie returns to work with Lionel after he stormed out during their first session. The social exchange theory operates on the model of profits = rewards – costs.
The fact that individualists and collectivists rely on different information sets while making life satisfaction judgements have strong support in cultural studies (Suh, Diener, Oishi, & Triandis, 1998) is significant in the discussion of OB and its relation to internalist and externalist orientation. Suh et al. (1998) found that while collectivists made judgements about their life satisfaction based on their emotional experience and social norms, individualists based their judgements based on their emotional experiences alone. In a similar vein, it can be argued that internalsists and externalists rely on different information sets while making judgements about OB with externalists making reference to the PDO or a state of balance which the society considers to be optimal, and the internalists referring to acts of balancing that provide satisfying occupational experiences while making judgements about OB. As shown in the vignettes, circumstances in which the individual does not have the mental capacity to determine a satisfactory OB or in individuals whose personal interpretation of PDO as self-satisfying differs from a healthful interpretation, positing PDO as a yardstick on which both the individual as well as others could make judgements about OB could be helpful to understand and resolve differences.
The role of self-identity for an individual is the acknowledgement of their characteristics that make them who they are (Oxford University Press, 2015). This essay will look at whether developmental or social influences have a greater effect on self-identity, including some key theories. In terms of development, Bowlby introduced the Attachment theory in 1969 with the help of Ainsworth in 1973 looking at attachment styles in children, which later on went to explain the effect of attachment on self-identity. In terms of social influences, the Social Identity Theory developed by Tajifel and Turner in 1979 explains self-identity in terms of groups we are involved in and how that can affect self-identity. Developmentally, self-identity can be described by self-awareness: Public self which is the way individuals believe others see them and private self, the way individuals are aware of their own characteristics (Cherry, 2016).
