How Groupthink Helped Me to Open Up
Kind of thinking that occurs when people place more importance on maintaining group cohesiveness than on assessing the facts of the problem with which the group is concerned. I feel like this has helped me a lot this year. I used to be hy on talking to new people and when we had to go in groups or have class discussion, I feel like I opened up. Not a whole lot, but I noticed a change. This class had made me realize it is okay to open up and have discussions with people you may or may not know all that well.
Importance of Compliance in My Life
Changing one’s behavior as a result of other people directing or asking for the change. I feel as if someone asked me to do something, I would instantly do it. Even if someone didn’t ask me to do something, sometimes it was a habit. For example, everytime Mrs. Kalafut was going to show a video or picture, I automatically got up to turn off the light. Or when someone would knock on the door when it was locked, I would let them in. It is polite and it helps out Mrs. Kalafut. I feel like I have changed my behavior, so others could be happy and everything would be steady.
My Experience of Psychological Disorder
Any pattern of behavior that causes people significant distress, causes them to harm others, or harms their ability to function in daily life. I personally have not had this, but my sister did. I have been through this, just not personally. It relates to me though because I helped my sister through this. She had lots of issues and she did not like anyone and she would not show a care in much. She didn’t want to go to school or work, she didn’t want to be here. She would shut everyone out and not feel guilty at all.
Situational Context: the social or environmental setting of a person’s behavior. I relate to this because in every environment or place everyone is different. Maybe they act in a good way or bad way. I know certain places I go, I am super selfish and just want to be left alone. Such as, when I go to the cemetery to visit my sister. Or when I go to certain places, I am in a good mood. Such as, when I go visit my grandpa in the nursing home. When I visit him, it brightens up his day and he actually does what I tell him to do. He usually only listens to me and my grandma, he doesn’t like the nurses.
Importance of Nurture and Environment
The influence of the environment on personality, physical growth, intellectual growth, and social interactions. I feel like who I am today is based on the people around me and how I grew up around certain things. I would say it is more environmental than inherited. No matter what, the people you hangout with has a strong impact on who you are. The people I hangout with are similar to who I am because we hangout all the time. Yes, I do get some of who I am from my parents and siblings, but the more you grow up you see how much you have changed.
To conclude this, I feel like many of us kids are similar in many ways. Some of us may be different, but i’m sure the way we are today has a big impact of the society today. Who I am is based on who I hangout with, what classes I take, what job I have, what car I drive, or even who my parents are. Everything relates to what we do in our life. This class has taught me many different things and more interesting facts about myself I didn’t even know. Mrs. Kalafut is a great teacher, and I am glad she taught me psychology. She really explains things well and makes sure you understand.
In Mrs. Kalufuts’s class, I learned a lot of interesting facts I never knew about. Even better, I learned new things about myself I never knew about. Mrs. Kalafut is a very direct and great teacher. She helps you understand the concept of what we are talking about. It really helps when she shows visuals and shows videos. When we play games for some of the labs, it helps the students get a grasp on what we will be talking about. Some of the terms in the book help define who I am, some of these terms relate to who I am and I had no idea.
