Big Five personality traits

Big Five personality traits
In psychology, the Big Five personality traits are five broad domains or dimensions of personality that are used to describe human personality. The theory based on the Big Five factors is called the five-factor model (FFM).[1] The five factors are openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness, and neuroticism. Acronyms commonly used to refer to the five traits collectively are OCEAN, NEOAC, or CANOE. Beneath each global factor, a cluster of correlated and more specific primary factors are found; for example, extraversion includes such related qualities as gregariousness, assertiveness, excitement seeking, warmth, activity, and positive emotions.[2]:24 The Big Five model is able to account for different traits in personality without overlapping. §Five factors[edit] A summary of the factors of the Big Five and their constituent traits, such that they form the acronym OCEAN:[4] Openness to experience: (inventive/curious vs. consistent/cautious). §Openness to experience[edit] Related:  jpb1952Personality DISC

Resources for GRADEpro | The Cochrane IMS HELP files We highly recommend using the HELP files found in the GRADEpro software. The HELP files provide specific information to create Summary of Findings (SoF) Tables and use the GRADE approach to grade the quality of the evidence. You can also access the HELP file from your desktop if you choose to add the icon when downloading GRADEpro. Also found in the HELP files is a brief step by step task list to create an SoF. The Cochrane Handbook The Cochrane Handbook includes two principle chapters which provide information on how to create Summary of Findings Tables using the information from Cochrane systematic reviews and GRADEing the evidence. Chapter 11: Presenting results and ‘Summary of findings’ tables Chapter 12: Interpreting results and drawing conclusions Webinars and online modules Online modules for GRADE criteria and Summary of Findings TablesA variety of online modules have been created to help GRADE the evidence in systematic reviews and create Summary of Findings Tables.

Type A and Type B personality theory Type A and Type B personality theory describes two contrasting personality types that could either raise or lower, respectively, one's chances of developing coronary heart disease. There is considerable controversy about the role of these personality types in coronary heart disease and the role of tobacco industry funding of early research in this area. History[edit] Type A personality behavior was first described as a potential risk factor for heart disease in the 1950s by cardiologists Meyer Friedman and Ray Rosenman. After an eight-and-a-half-year-long study of healthy men between the ages of 35 and 59, Friedman and Rosenman estimated that Type A behavior doubles the risk of coronary heart disease in otherwise healthy individuals.[1] The individuals enrolled in this study were followed well beyond the original time frame of the study. The types[edit] Type A[edit] Type B[edit] The theory describes "Type B" individuals as a contrast to those with Type A personalities. Criticism[edit]

List of cognitive biases Systematic patterns of deviation from norm or rationality in judgment Cognitive biases are systematic patterns of deviation from norm and/or rationality in judgment. They are often studied in psychology, sociology and behavioral economics.[1] Although the reality of most of these biases is confirmed by reproducible research,[2][3] there are often controversies about how to classify these biases or how to explain them.[4] Several theoretical causes are known for some cognitive biases, which provides a classification of biases by their common generative mechanism (such as noisy information-processing[5]). Explanations include information-processing rules (i.e., mental shortcuts), called heuristics, that the brain uses to produce decisions or judgments. There are also controversies over some of these biases as to whether they count as useless or irrational, or whether they result in useful attitudes or behavior.

Science & Nature - Human Body and Mind - Mind - Personality The sketchnote revolution « Dachis Group Collaboratory I’ve got an idea for a new year’s resolution: Join the sketchnote revolution. Sketchnotes are a visual form of note-taking that can include drawings, various lettering sizes and styles, color, icons, arrows, boxes and more — whatever works for you. I’d say that sketchnoting is officially a movement — maybe you’ve seen some from SXSWi or other conferences. And the best part? But these sketchnotes are pretty great. We all go to conferences. Enter sketchnotes. Seriously, anybody can do it. Benefits of Sketchnotes By writing and drawing key concepts you can make a better connection with the content as opposed to just typing out someone’s words.Non-linear note-taking lets you arrange things in ways that make sense to you and allows you to go back embellish and enhance key points.Simply by doing it more, you become better at drawing and less self-conscious about it.People actually are interested in reading notes like this — they get passed around. Draw liveDraw live and later Draw!

Type D personality Characteristics[edit] Individuals with a Type D personality have the tendency to experience increased negative emotions across time and situations and tend not to share these emotions with others, because of fear of rejection or disapproval. Johan Denollet, professor of Medical Psychology at Tilburg University, Tilburg, The Netherlands, developed the construct based on clinical observations in cardiac patients, empirical evidence, and existing theories of personality.[3] The prevalence of Type D personality is 21% in the general population[4] and ranges between 18% to 53% in cardiac patients.[5] Research has shown that CHD patients with a Type D personality have a worse prognosis following a myocardial infarction (MI) as compared to patients without a Type D personality. Assessment[edit] Type D has also been addressed with respect to common somatic complaints in childhood.[10] See also[edit] References[edit] External links[edit]

Monomyth Joseph Campbell's monomyth, or the hero's journey, is a basic pattern that its proponents argue is found in many narratives from around the world. This widely distributed pattern was described by Campbell in The Hero with a Thousand Faces (1949).[1] Campbell, an enthusiast of novelist James Joyce, borrowed the term monomyth from Joyce's Finnegans Wake.[2] Campbell held that numerous myths from disparate times and regions share fundamental structures and stages, which he summarized in The Hero with a Thousand Faces: A hero ventures forth from the world of common day into a region of supernatural wonder: fabulous forces are there encountered and a decisive victory is won: the hero comes back from this mysterious adventure with the power to bestow boons on his fellow man.[3] A chart outlining the Hero's Journey. Summary[edit] In a monomyth, the hero begins in the ordinary world, and receives a call to enter an unknown world of strange powers and events. The 17 Stages of the Monomyth[edit]

Designing conference posters » Colin Purrington A large-format poster is a big piece of paper or wall-mounted monitor featuring a short title, an introduction to your burning question, an overview of your novel experimental approach, your amazing results in graphical form, some insightful discussion of aforementioned results, a listing of previously published articles that are important to your research, and some brief acknowledgement of the tremendous assistance and financial support conned from others — if all text is kept to a minimum (less than a 1000 words), a person could fully read your poster in 5-10 minutes. Section content • DOs and DON’Ts • Adding pieces of flair • Presenting • Motivational advice • Software • Templates • Printing • Useful literature • Organizing a poster session What to put in each section Below, I’ve provided rough tips on how many words each of these sections might have, but those guesses are assuming you have a horizontal poster that is approximately 3×4′.
