Extroverts can be some of the best people you meet. They have plenty to offer and thrive at the attention of others. However, being introverted can be just as great. In a society where being extroverted is the ideal, it can be very difficult to be an introvert. Susan Cain argues in her Ted Talk, “The Power of Introverts”, that introverts can share many brilliant ideas with the world and should be encouraged and celebrated for who they are. While she utilizes all 3 persuasive appeals, Susan Cain most effectively uses ethos in her TED Talk to persuade her audience to encourage people to allow introverts to thrive.
Symbols have various hidden meanings that are used as a language to express emotions. They are used to make people aware of various thoughts about life and it is proved by Harper Lee’s novel to kill a mockingbird. Lee demonstrates through plot and characters that symbols express those thoughts that cannot be converted into words to express relations and emotions to a greater extent.
Symbols, the meaningful representations that we constantly come across throughout our lifetimes, live within the minds of each human in our society. Not only is it associated with great meanings, it provokes many emotions that we feel such as aggressiveness or delightment. Symbols are extremely expressive and can change how our behavior may come about. For example, heart signs, logos, money and even religious flags have enough power to instantly change a person’s behavior when particular symbols are being encountered. Many experiments, tested by featured psychologists in the book, Drunk Tank Pink by Adam Alter, reveal surprising results when people are faced or reminded with even a glimpse of a symbol. Certain feelings arise and the brain interprets
“Symbolic Explosion” happened about 50,000 years ago and was to depict the various forms of human art, cultural presentations, standard rituals and probably, the power assimilated within. Symbol became universally accepted by kingdoms, countries and societies as a natural and effective expression for whatever the symbol may represent. Symbolism has been given various interpretations by laureates, be it to adorn or to showcase religion or to represent a society or tell a story. It may be more powerful than a religion or money or land or violence. Its presence is as pictures or images, yet, is capable of narrating an entire story revolving around the subject that it represents. Humans have grown up with the symbols. Over time, symbol has become a habit or an innate tendency for the human race.
Commonly, a symbol commences as a principle object of discussion, usually based on rational inquiry and deliberation. The scarlet letter undergoes three distinct changes throughout the book, much like the Swastika throughout cultures. Adverse or not, symbolism personifies as a deeper and more meaningful way of representing certain things. The world presently determines itself on the understanding of various symbols, and without them, the basis of human thought withholds little
Susan Cain’s Quiet opens on a familiar scene: Rosa Parks’s refusal to relinquish her seat to a white passenger on a Montgomery, Alabama public bus. Most descriptions of this tide-changing event stop there, but Cain goes deeper into the personality of the late civil-rights advocate, and reveals something unexpected: Rosa Parks was an introvert.
I choose to do a piece of art inspired by Alphabet/Good Humor, a sculpture by Claes Oldenburg. Oldenburg’s Alphabet/Good Humor (Fig. 1) is a large Popsicle shaped sculpture, formed by fleshy pink bubble letters. At almost twelve feet tall, the piece, made of painted fiberglass and bronze, has a playful, almost charismatic feel. The odd muted peach, almost vomit-esque color of the letters reminds me of a brain, or some other body part that could be found deep inside someone, and clashes with the bright colors one traditionally associates with these frozen desserts. Located at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, the piece was recently reinstalled in the west end of the Early Twentieth Century Art Gallery bridge, where it demands to be noticed
Are those who are happier also more likely to be more extraverted? Extraversion is operationally defined by The Big 5 Personality measure as having high levels of activity, assertiveness and cheerfulness. Those who are considered to have this personality trait tend to be more friendly, excitement-seeking and enjoy being in social situations. There have been large amounts of research which has been carried out in order to attempt to explain the causes of happiness, and a considerable amount has shown that extraversion is closely related (McCrae and Costa, 1980, Tamir, 2009). This report aims to look at The Five-Factor Model as a part of the Big 5 personality test,
The exclamation mark was introduced into English printing in the fifteenth century. As with emoticons, the exclamation mark 's usage varies in different parts of the world. The main purpose for our research is to determine if it is true that women convey their emotions via text message more than men through the use of emojis, punctuation marks, and capital letters.
The construct that our group chose to measure was social introversion. For the purposes of our project, our operationalized definition of social introversion stated that one is an introvert if one has a tendency to contemplate and observe before engaging in activities, possesses a high level of self-awareness on one’s actions, feels comfortable in solitude, and tends to reflect on one’s life. As we analyzed other assessments that similarly measured social introversion, we began to realize that social introversion had been unfairly characterized. According to Ward (1998), who wrote the measurement of social introversion in the MMPI-2, “social introversion is positively correlated with self-consciousness, social avoidance and self/other alienation”
How do emojis help us communicate? Emojis are imperative components of communication, that help others to understand emotion while having virtual conversations.

An average high school English teacher works tirelessly to prove to his or her students the value of formal language. Countless weeks are spent reading and interpreting the world's most revered writers. A whole day may be devoted to teaching students why Shakespeare's characters attempt to define love by saying, “Love is a smoke raised with the fume of sighs; Being purged, a fire sparkling in lovers' eyes; Being vexed, a sea nourished with loving tears. What is it else? A madness most discreet, a choking gall, and a preserving sweet” (romeo juliet.) Yet, to the teacher’s disappointment, the entirety of the lesson can be lost when a young girl receives a text from her admirer saying, “u wanna d8???”
