How do social mores and values fit in here within respect to biological theories? What do they have to do with personality feature and/or disposition per trait theories?

Hi Everyone,

 

 

How do social mores and values fit in here within respect to biological theories? What do they have to do with personality feature and/or disposition per trait theories?

 

Class, please do jump in to discuss!

 

Thanks,

In what ways are African American stereotypes perpetuated through popular culture?

To what extent do youth emulate and/or internalize these messages?

Can public schools be sites whereby students and teachers critically engage the topic of race?

Can middle grades and secondary social studies class- rooms facilitate such controversial topics?

My research questions:

Do centrality of beliefs mediate behaviors that effect social reconstruction?

Do learning strategies mediate beliefs and behaviors that effect social reconstruction?

Do age mediate beliefs that effect the behaviors of people for social reconstruction?

 

My research question is based on the reconstruction of social norms to understand the effects of belief involvement as a subsystem of  social changes. Understanding that changes are constant and not unified across groups, I want to evaluate the centrality of beliefs and learning influences on children, adults, gender, and environment to evaluate its impact on overall social relationships and learning.

I would want to use MANOVA in a mixed methods approach for analysis in qualitative (questionnaires), (Interviews) (Survey Monkey data) and quantitative research to define the problems that might be hidden behind subtle influences of unknown originations in early childhood development, cultural and social learning that presents a cultural divide among believers and strengthens the tighs of social revolutions.

Re:Module 5 DQ 2

Biological theories have been considered to be divergent from social perspectives on personality. In light of recent research, might biology and social influences actually combine to shape personality? Why or why not?

 

This discussion question is a very interesting question and it so happens that on the paper that was due Wednesday (October 12, 2016) regarding genetics, environment, or combination of genetics and environment in relation to personality, I had cited a research where the study has shown that there are indication and agreement among academics that genetics and environment may both play a part in personality development. One such study argues and discusses that the debate of nature versus nurture or genetics versus environment that scholars have an understanding and perhaps an agreement of that both are important and not really independent from each other in terms of an explanation of whether it is genetics or environment individually that explains a particular behavior pattern (Spinath & Bleidorn, 2016). Spinath & Bleidorn (2016) further elaborate that there are genetic factors and environment that come into play when it comes to that are intertwined in the explanation of and influence individuals and social injustice. This study I find very interesting because the authors take a holistic view on social injustice and behavioral patterns of individual in relations to personality types and decision making of individuals.

I agree with the study because in my own personal experience, I do believe that genetics and environment both play a role in personality and behavior. I really never thought that I was going to be an adjunct professor because of my innate trait of being shy and fear of public speaking. However, with practice of public speaking and communicating with clients gave me the practice in the real estate environment

Assess your learning- In light of biological theories and an entire 360 approach to treatment in a clinical sense for example, how would you go about assessment of a patient/client for need of medication?

Hi ALL,

 

In light of biological theories and an entire 360 approach to treatment in a clinical sense for example, how would you go about assessment of a patient/client for need of medication?

 

Thoughts?  Is medication needed all the time? Should it be a first line of defense?

 

Please back your answer.

 

Thanks,

 

Dr. N

Re:Module 5 DQ 2

Biological theories have been considered to be divergent from social perspectives on personality. In light of recent research, might biology and social influences actually combine to shape personality? Why or why not?

The evidence supporting biological theories is growing. Biological theories claim that the individual’s personality originates from their genetic makeup or biology. These theories diverge from social theories which believe that personality originates from learned life experiences. This leads to the classic nature or nurture argument about the origin of personality. This topic is important because it has massive implication of how clinicians treat patients with personality disorders. For instance, a clinician that believes that there is an underlying biological problem may try to treat with drugs or gene therapy whereas a clinician who believes there is an underlying social conflict may try to treat with psychoanalysis.

As this week’s lecture mentioned, personality is affected by a combination of biology and social factors (Grand Canyon University, 2016). For instance, individuals are probably born with certain biological characteristics, but their personality is further defined through social interactions. Kandler (2014) conducted empirical research that was able to statistically confirm the presence of biological factors in the personality of their patients. His results “indicate a model of personality development that integrates genetically driven development (e.g., niche-picking) and social maturation (e.g., changes in social roles and social identity formation)” (p. 582).

Biological and social theories have both shown promise in accounting for personality differences, but neither of the theories alone can fully explain all of the variation in personality. Personality is from a combination of biological and social factors. It will be interesting to see new models of personality as researchers continue their work on the origins of personality.
