Myers-Briggs Type Indicator Model of personality types A chart with descriptions of each Myers–Briggs personality type and the four dichotomies central to the theory The Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is an introspective self-report questionnaire indicating differing psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions.[1][2][3] The original versions of the MBTI were constructed by two Americans, Katharine Cook Briggs and her daughter Isabel Briggs Myers.[4] The MBTI is based on the conceptual theory proposed by Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung,[5] who had speculated that people experience the world using four principal psychological functions – sensation, intuition, feeling, and thinking – and that one of these four functions is dominant for a person most of the time.[6] The four categories are Introversion/Extraversion, Sensing/Intuition, Thinking/Feeling, Judging/Perception. History[edit] Katharine Cook Briggs began her research into personality in 1917. Differences from Jung[edit]

PhD: The Book! by James Hayton In 2003, I started a PhD in physics at the University of Nottingham. Although I was determined to do well, I soon discovered that it is much easier to get onto a PhD program than it is to complete one... I succeeded in the end, but only after a struggling through a change of project, countless failed experiments, broken equipment, constant self-doubt, and a minor mental breakdown. This book shares my experience, along with the general principles I've developed over the last four years working with PhD students in all disciplines. The purpose of a PhD is to develop the skills of a professional academic researcher. In this book, you will learn the fundamental principles of skill development, and how to apply them towards becoming an excellent researcher, while avoiding the most common mistakes. We will cover... To get the book finished quickly, I need to be able to work on it full-time, and that means I need funding to support myself.

How to conduct social science research If you would like to produce good quantitative social-science research, try remembering these two words: “ceteris paribus.” That’s Latin for “other things being equal.” And it’s a key principle when designing studies: Find two groups of people who, other things being equal, are distinguished by one key feature. Consider health care. If you can find two otherwise equal groups of people who differ only in terms of health care coverage — one group has it, one doesn’t — then you may be able identify a causal relationship at work: What difference does it make when people get health insurance? Without such a research strategy, scholars can be left staring at a tangle of potential causes and effects. “People are constantly looking at the world around them and trying to learn from it, and that’s natural,” MIT economist Joshua Angrist says. Angrist, the Ford Professor of Economics, has long been one of the leading advocates of research that uses “ceteris paribus” principles. Fun and failure

People around you control your mind: The latest evidence So you’re sitting on a plane, somewhere in the back. Sweat is rising off this human stew, and in horror you watch it condense, trickling down the window glass. You slam the blind shut. Of course the feeling is irrational—you’re flying, through the sky! Someone next to you swipes his credit card to buy an in-flight movie, which again reminds you of the insult, the nickel and diming, of air travel. And yet. That’s the power of peer pressure. In a recent working paper, Pedro Gardete looked at 65,525 transactions across 1,966 flights and more than 257,000 passengers. If someone beside you ordered a snack or a film, Gardete was able to see whether later you did, too. Because he had reservation data, Gardete could exclude people flying together, and he controlled for all kinds of other factors such as seat choice. By adding up thousands of these little experiments, Gardete, an assistant professor of marketing at Stanford, came up with an estimate.

Can an index ever be a good measure of social inclusion? | Let's Talk Development I really don’t like indices, particularly those that claim to measure what are termed “social issues”. And they seem to be everywhere. Ok, the Human Development Index did a lot to push countries to do more on health and education, and its rankings serve to pit countries in good competition with each other. Just to stop my initial train of thought here, I have two problems with indices that measure “well-being”: first, they are often weighted and the weights assigned to individual components expose the subjectivity of their creators. Second, in a bid to make them comparable across countries, their creators make indices awfully generic - almost reductionist. ​But what do I do when people ask me for a summary measure of social inclusion? I have been mulling over the Social Progress Index, since the beta version came out in 2013. The Social Progress Index is a simple average of three dimensions of “social progress” – basic human needs, well-being and opportunity. Agreed!

Exclusif. Le recrutement des docteurs dans la haute fonction publique face au mur des "grands corps" de l'État Les docteurs pourront-ils intégrer les corps de la haute fonction publique, comme le prévoit l'article 78 de la loi ESR du 22 juillet 2013, et dans quelles conditions ? Plus d'un an après l'adoption de la loi Fioraso, la question n'est toujours pas tranchée, et a nécessité la mobilisation d'une mission spéciale dépêchée par la secrétaire d'État à l'Enseignement supérieur et à la Recherche, et l'avis du Conseil d'État. La Rue Montpensier a même convoqué mi-septembre une assemblée générale – un cas de figure rarissime pour un sujet qui ne relève pas de la plus brûlante actualité – pour répondre à la demande d'avis formulée par la directrice générale de la fonction publique, Marie-Anne Lévêque. Cet avis, dont EducPros a eu connaissance, examine point par point les dispositions de l'article 78 de la loi ESR. Une multiplication d'obstacles une autre lecture du ministère

¿Cuántos minutos vale viajar sentado? | pedestre Lunes 2 de marzo, 8.15 AM. En la parada del flamante bus de la RTP que hace el recorrido Miguel Ángel de Quevedo – Santa Fe (EcoBús es su nombre artístico) se pueden apreciar dos filas: una larga, bastante larga, y otra corta. El paisaje se repite en las horas de mayor demanda en gran parte de los centros de transferencia modal y terminales de microbuses de la ciudad: una fila larga, que se despliega de la puerta del bus hacia atrás, y otra corta que se coloca de la puerta hacia adelante. En la fila larga de Miguel Ángel de Quevedo y Universidad cuento 80 personas. El tema es que el confort para el pasajero es el gran olvidado de los procesos de transformación del transporte público implementados en México y Latinoamérica (el mencionado EcoBús puede ser una excepción). No debiera ser así, pero a veces el precio a pagar por viaje digno en la ciudad es media hora de espera. Palabras al cierre Interesante tuit el de Mauricio Rodas, Alcalde de Quito.

¿Cuánto vale mi comodidad? - Moviliblog | Moviliblog Foto: © CC BY Francisco Osorio Y cuánto vale nuestro tiempo. Las respuestas varían en función de las percepciones, de perspectivas y de nuestro entorno. Si me toca hacer fila en un parque de atracciones, la experiencia será completamente diferente si estoy sentado a la sombra o de pie bajo el sol. Si me llevan al cine, necesito saber si es para una buena película antes de decidir si invertir o no mi tiempo. Lo mismo pasa cuando viajamos en transporte público. Los sistemas de Bus Rapid Transit (BRT), en línea hoy en 180 ciudades, aunque han mejorado notablemente los tiempos de viaje, tienen el problema del sobrecupo. Para entender mejor el impacto del sobrecupo en la calidad del viaje, realizamos el estudio “Evaluación de la comodidad del pasajero en el transporte masivo” en Santiago de Chile (bus y metro) y Bogotá (BRT) donde hablamos con más de 1.000 usuarios a través de grupos focales y encuestas. Es necesario replantear el tema de la sobreocupación.

These travel time maps show how well, or badly, British cities are connected by rail There are two different ways of measuring distance. (Actually, there are more, perhaps infinitely more, but for the purposes of this story we shall go with two.) You can do it as-the-crow-flies, drawing a straight line to find the shortest distance between two points; or you can consider how long it would actually take you to get from point A to point B. Of these two methods, the former has the advantage of being objective, scientific and accurate; but it's the latter that actually chimes with human experience of the world. Which brings us to this rather clever map we found on the website of entrepreneur, occasional CityMetric contributor and professional Yorkshireman Tom Forth. The map shows how well connected 22 British cities are by rail. To make things even cooler, the travel time map overlays a warped, pink version of the British isles. All that's probably a bit difficult to visualise, though, so let's actually try it out. Let's start with London. Distances from Birmingham.
