Intimate Winking Intimate Winking The face is an organ of emotion and we constantly read facial expressions to understand what others are feeling. The face also contains other powerful clues. Our identity is captured in our features and our eyes reveal important truths about us, even those we would prefer to conceal. We use facial expressions as a process of sending and receiving wordless messages such as smiling, frowning, laughing, and winking to name a few. Body language symbols may be learne
jokes1 Sigmund Freud\'s revolutionary ideas have set the standard for modern psychoanalysis that students of psychology can learn from, and his ideas spread from the field of medicine to daily living. His studies in areas such as unconsciousness, dreams, sexuality, the Oedipus complex, and sexual maladjustments laid the foundation for future studies and a better understanding of the small things that shape our lives. In 1873 Freud graduated from the Sperl Gymnasium and, inspired by a public read

Jungian View on The Great Gatsby The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic story about the shallow aristocracy of the 1920’s American society, is the topic of much interpretation. This paper is a simple proposition that the “Roaring Twenties” were years dominated by an SP (part of Carl Jung’s archetypal psychology that will later be explained in more depth) society and the characters in The Great Gatsby reflect and were deeply affected by this fact. Daisy will be analyzed herein, as well a
Kierkegaard Søren Kierkegaard Søren Aabye Kierkegaard (b.1813, d. 1855) was a profound and prolific writer in the Danish "golden age" of intellectual and artistic activity. His work crosses the boundaries of philosophy, theology, psychology, literary criticism, devotional literature and fiction. Kierkegaard brought this potent mixture of discourses to bear as social critique and for the purpose of renewing Christian faith within Christendom. At the same time he made many original conceptual cont
kj Why IQ tests don\'t test intelligence The task of trying to quantify a person’s intelligence has been a goal of psychologists since before the beginning of this century. The Binet-Simon scales were first proposed in 1905 in Paris, France and various sorts of tests have been evolving ever since. One of the important questions that always comes up regarding these tools is what are the tests really measuring? Are they measuring a person’s intelligence? Their ability to perform well on standardiz

For the homosexual couples, this decision is great, but for some other people, the decision is a disaster. The question is what is rig

Metacognition Metacognition has been defined as "having knowledge (cognition) and having understanding, control over, and appropriate use of that knowledge" (Tei and Stewart; as cited by Collins, 1994, p. 2).

Mothers Memories1 In “The Accuracy of Mother’ Memories of Conversations With Their Preschool Children”, Maggie Bruck, Stephen Ceci and Emmett Francoeur examine the “specific elements” of mother’s memories when interacting with their children. Twenty four mothers with young children from the ages of three to five were picked for this study. Most of the children were from middle class families. The mothers were all told that the experiment was about their interactions with their children. Then the

Then, it will cover some general topics that will effect teachers\' identity with a school and look at the theoretical concepts that relate to motivation, especially the motivational theories of Ma

Myths are neither wholly true nor wholly untrue. They may have been more true in the past than now, but people act as if they are still true, even when they no longer really believe in them. Some modem usages of the word have connotations that suggest that myths are irrelevant or wrong, but this is not necessarily so. Myths are of c

ObsessiveCompulsive disorder 1 I have always been fascinated with behavioral disorders, especially OCD. I learned about OCD a few years ago when I was reading a medical journal. At first, it seemed like something very odd. The idea that otherwise normal people can do such strange things, and not be able to control themselves was fascinating. I wanted to know more about this topic, which is why I chose to write my paper on it. I thought that by knowing more about the subject, I will be able to be

out the easy way Before I started high school, elementary school teachers told me that no one cared about you at the high school. It was a different world and you had to do everything on your own. As I started my first semester, I was working with A’s and B’s, and great conduct. I learned a lot though. It was true; most teachers really didn’t care about their students and followed a lesson plan that had been in repetitive use since the 70’s. But that wasn’t a problem. I like looking at things fr

Paul had lived one splendid breath and a losing game in the end, just as he had referred to the flowers growing

Not shying away from the world in fear, but rather in an insecure manner. He seems to live in his own world, not caring about what is going on around him or what he is missing out on. He lives according to his standards and rarely lets his peers influence him. Once you have the chance to get to know him, your perception of him

Polarization in the Political System On Tuesday, November 14, 1995, in what has been perceived as the years biggest non-event, the federal government shut down all "non-essential" services due to what was, for all intents and purposes, a game of national "chicken" between the House Speaker and the President. And, at an estimated cost of 200 million dollars a day, this dubious battle of dueling egos did not come cheap (Bradsher, 1995, p.16). Why do politicians find it almost congenitally impossib
Polygamy1 Journal #4: Africa We have been recently studying the country of Africa and one aspect that I have found rather interesting is how commonly polygamous marriages are practiced there. We were able to understand these situations in better detail from studying “Things Fall Apart” and reading about Okonkwo’s many wives and his different relationship with each one of them. I was unaware of the fact that this is also taking place in the United States before reading the article, “My Husband’s
Polygamy2 Polygamy is the practice of a man taking more than one wife at the same time. Polyandry is when a woman takes more that one husband at the same time. Polyandry is rare compared to polygamy, because it is only known to be inexistence in two parts of the world. One is among the Nair people who are inhabitants of India’s Malabar Coast. The other is in Tibet, where a woman can take her husband’s brothers as her mates. This paper will be focused strictly on the debate over polygamy. It does

psychology Analytical Paper on Spike Lee\'s Do the Right Thing Director and actor Spike Lee presents his "truth" about race relations in his movie Do the Right Thing. The film exhibits the spectacle of black discrimination and racial altercations. Through serious, angry, and loud sounds, Lee stays true to the ethnicity of his characters, all of which reflect their own individualism. Lee uses insulting diction and intense scenes to show how severe racism can lead to violence. The biases reflected
