I am not sure whether this client had consulted a mental health professionals or not. The analysis of personality disorders may be among the most contentious and challenging. Studies shown that one of the disputes surrounding personality disorders might be an unavailability of an obvious criteria for diagnosis. Due to this, psychologists might need to take more time in understanding the client, and his or her signs and symptoms, before reaching to a final diagnosis of personality disorder. With a vigilant method and belief on the DSM, psychologists might have more information to make a precise diagnosis of personality disorders.
It also has shown many challenges. “The following two questions are critical in evaluating the value of the MMPI-2 to insanity evaluations: 1. Do MMPI-2 clinical profiles differentiate between those determined to be sane and those determined to be insane? 2.

I remember that I have studied Erickson 's theory before at least three times, but when I read about it during this week assignment, I found some answers for many questions about the therapeutic applications for the theory. As Adler-Tapia, R. (2012) stated that “conceptualizing psychotherapy with Erickson 's stages of psychological development helps the therapist to formulate theories of when the client did not successful awareness each stage of psychological development” (p. 25). For me this is a kind of direct answer of how to integrate the theory into the practical intervention with client. Also, the examples of the Behaviorism theory were very useful for me to know more about the application of the theory because the author was talking about real clients
How did we deceive ourselves into thinking hurting ourselves will help us? Personally, I can relate to a lot of the reasons stated by those interviewed.

This study was carried out with a small amount of people, in my opinion I think that for a study to be successful it needs a lot more people to base a conclusion on, after the IQ assessment they participated in an interview giving feedback to the clinician, how they felt about the test and how they feel afterwards. To analyze this research Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis was used, IPA “is to explore in detail how participants are making sense of their personal level and social world. ”(Smith & Osborn, 2007) The study was composed of people between the ages 16- 65, all the participants were given the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale III within the last 6 months, this is a test design to measure intelligence in adults and older adolescents, the test is composed of 15 subtests and provide a full scale IQ and four additional composite score indexes, verbal comprehension Index, perceptual reasoning index, processing speed index and working memory
In order to more fully understand this myth, it is important to consider which demographics believe in it and what exactly they believe. 70% of introductory psychology students (92 surveyed) believed that hypnosis would be useful in helping witnesses to recall details of crimes (Lilienfeld et al. 70). Approximately 90% of college students say that hypnosis helps with memory retrieval (Lilienfeld et al. 70). 84% of psychologists believe that memories are stored in the mind
1. What is implicit personality theory? This theory is a set of assumptions that a person makes, often unconsciously, about the correlations between personality traits, including such widespread expectations of impression positively correlated with generosity, so that a person who is cold is perceived as being likely to be serious. Some implicit personality theories also include correlations between psychological and dimensions of impressions.
It is still widely used on a large scale to predict the personalities of others. In this test all the subjects are given with different pictures and are asked to write a story on it. The different subjects predicts different meaning of the same story which usually reveals their desires or the past experiences of the individual. TAT test is given by Murry in 1938.
The concept of personality has fascinated psychologists for years. Allport proposed the hierarchy of traits – cardinal, central, and secondary traits (Allport, 1945). Cattell also proposed his theory, the sixteen dimensions of human personality (Cattell, 1944). Jung developed a type-based theory of personality, with different dichotomous personality categories, which was further developed by Myers and Briggs in 1962 to produce the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (Ford, 2013). Some psychologists have even argued that personality does not exist; that people change behaviour over time and across various situations.
