Truth and character: sources that older adults can remember. (1/110)

Are age differences in source memory inevitable? The two experiments reported here examined the hypothesis that the type of source information being tested mediates the magnitude of age differences in source memory. In these studies, participants listened to statements made by two different speakers. We compared younger and older adults' source memory in a traditional perceptual source task (memory for voice) and in two affective, conceptually based source tasks (truth of the statements, character of a person in a photo). In both studies, the perceptual and conceptual source information were conveyed in the same manner, as one speaker was associated with one type of information (e.g., female voice speaks truth). Age differences were robust for decisions regarding who said each statement but were negligible or truth or character decisions. These findings are provocative because they suggest that the type of information can influence age-related patterns of performance for source-conveyed information.  (+info)

Hereditary influences in relation to the problem of child adoption. (2/110)

There is little exact information on the hereditary influences which are of greatest interest from the social and educational points of view. Many genes are involved in the origins of socially significant traits and there are usually many steps in the causal chain linking gene to trait. The value of genetical judgements is thus limited; they cannot be substituted for facts ascertained about the physical and mental state of the child itself at the time of adoption. Information on the family occurrence of recessive autosomal or sex-linked traits may be used for predicting the likelihood of the onset of diseases later on in life. The knowledge that a rare dominant abnormality is present in a close relative is especially important if the close relative is the subject's own parent. But most genetical problems in adoption cases concern graded characters, and here prediction can only be very tentative. A definite degree of likeness obtains within families for graded characters, but the genetical divergence may be considerable, and it can be accentuated by environment.  (+info)

Of the 200 questionnaires sent (100 to anesthesiologists and surgeons each), 93 completed responses were returned (46 anesthesiologists, 47 surgeons; return rate 46.5%). STATISTICAL ANALYSIS: Student's unpaired 't' test; P<0.05 was considered statistically significant. RESULTS: The mean scores of anesthesiologists vis-a-vis surgeons on the various temperament dimensions were Novelty seeking: 8.6 vs. 9.2; Harm avoidance: 7.3 vs. 8.1; Reward dependence: 8.1 vs. 8.0; and Persistence: 3.0 vs. 3.1, respectively. Similar scores for the character dimensions were Self-directedness: 16.9 vs. 15.9; Cooperativeness: 17.5 vs. 16.5; and Self-transcendence: 7.0 vs. 6.7, respectively. There was no significant difference between the surgeons and anesthesiologists on any of the temperament and character variables of personality chosen for the study. CONCLUSION: Personality measures did not differ significantly between surgeons and anesthesiologists in this preliminary investigation. If replicated on a larger and more representative sample, the findings have clinical relevance to improve the working relationship between these two groups of closely working professionals.  (+info)

Temperament and character: prognostic factors in whiplash patients? (4/110)

We studied the relationship between whiplash injury and personality in 40 whiplash patients who admitted the hospital within 8 h from the car accident and 80 age- and gender-matched controls. For this purpose we used the Temperament and Character Inventory (TCI). We found that personality dimensions in whiplash patients both in the acute phase and at follow-up 2 years later showed the same results, i.e., significantly less Harm Avoidant (less anxious; low HA) than controls, but when dividing patients into groups depending on severity of outcome from whiplash injury 2 years after, no differences were found. According to our results personality symptoms related to whiplash injury is probably not a secondary phenomenon. Whiplash patients were normally developed in character, i.e., self-directedness (SD), and CO (cooperativeness) and therefore in general are capable of coping with their somatic problems.  (+info)

Temperament characteristics of street and non-street children in Eldoret, Kenya. (5/110)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the interaction of temperament and environment and how these impact on the psychological function of street children and non-street children in Eldoret Kenya. METHOD: This was a cross-sectional study conducted in Eldoret town. A Revised Dimensions of Temperament Survey (DOTS-R) a 54 item, factor-analytically-developed self-report instrument that measures nine temperament dimensions was used. RESULTS: The statistical analysis showed that the largest significant level was on the approach/withdrawal dimension (F = 12.38, p<.001) the activity level-sleep (F = 4.20, p<.01) and the task orientation (F = 3.62, p<.01) dimensions were next in rank in terms of significance. The highest mean score on activity level-general (17.88) and the activity level-sleep (9.65) were in the "of" the street children that is consistent with their scavenging lifestyle and sleeping patterns. They have to be vigilant when sleeping on shop verandas, run down buildings, and trash-bins. CONCLUSION: These results support earlier research on street children. Counter to public opinion and hostility, the children are resilient, adaptable and flexibile in the face of adversity and remaining well adjusted as individuals.  (+info)

Clinical holistic medicine: induction of spontaneous remission of cancer by recovery of the human character and the purpose of life (the life mission). (6/110)

The recovery of the human character and purpose of life with consciousness-based medicine seems to be able to induce spontaneous remissions in several diseases. On two different occasions, we observed breast tumors reduced to less than half their original diameters (clinically judged) during a holistic session, when working with the patients in accordance with the holistic process theory of healing, the life mission theory, and the theory of human character. One tumor was histologically diagnosed as malign breast cancer prior to the session, while the other was under examination. As both patients had the affected regions of the breast surgically removed immediately after the session, we are unable to determine if they were actually healed by the holistic treatment. We find it extremely interesting that the size of a tumor can be reduced dramatically within a few hours of holistic treatment, when the patient is highly motivated for personal development. The reduction of tumor size is in accordance with the holistic view that many types of cancer are caused by emotional and existential disturbances. From a holistic perspective, cancer can be understood as a simple disturbance of the cells, arising from the tissue holding on to a trauma with strong emotional content. This is called "a blockage", where the function of the cells is changed from their original function in the tissue to a function of holding emotions. The reduction of the tumor in the two cases happened when old painful emotions were identified in the tissues, in and around the tumor, and processed into understanding; when the patients finally did let go of negative beliefs and attitudes that had kept the feeling(s) repressed to that part of the body, the tumor first softened and then disappeared, presumably by apoptosis. We believe that the consciousness-based/holistic medical toolbox has a serious additional offer to cancer patients, and we will therefore strongly encourage the scientific society to explore these new possibilities. Our holistic medical research meets both ethical dilemmas and practical difficulties, as it obviously is important for the research in induced spontaneous remissions that surgery and chemotherapy is not used before it is absolutely necessary. On the other hand, is it important for the patient"s survival that they receive any well-documented treatment as soon as possible. An additional aspect for the patient who is able to cure her own cancer is that she is much less likely to get cancer again and much better prepared to deal with other diseases and challenges in life. Knowing that one can fight even cancer gives a strong belief in life and the need to improve quality of life. The high incidence of secondary cancers and the physical and emotional wounds from the biomedical treatment seem to justify a focus on prevention and additional holistic treatment modules. To support the patient in learning the mastery of coherence of body and life, using the crisis of cancer to recover the human character and the purpose of life, seems turning a personal potential disaster into the greatest gift of all. When it comes down to it, life is not just about surviving; what is more important is to live fully, to learn from the great challenges of life, and to obtain the optimal quality of life while being here.  (+info)

The life mission theory VI. A theory for the human character: healing with holistic medicine through recovery of character and purpose of life. (7/110)

The human character can be understood as an extension of the life mission or purpose of life, and explained as the primary tool of a person to impact others and express the purpose of life. Repression of the human character makes it impossible for a person to realize his personal mission in life and, therefore, is one of the primary causes of self-repression resulting in poor quality of life, health, and ability. From Hippocrates to Hahnemann, repression of physical, mental, and spiritual character can be seen as the prime cause of disease, while recovery of character has been the primary intention of the treatment. In this paper, human character is explained as an intersubjective aspect of consciousness with the ability to influence the consciousness of another person directly. To understand consciousness, we reintroduce the seven-ray theory of consciousness explaining consciousness in accordance with a fractal ontology with a bifurcation number of seven (the numbers four to ten work almost as well). A case report on a female, aged 35 years, with severe hormonal disturbances, diagnosed with extremely early menopause, is presented and treated according to the theory of holistic existential healing (the holistic process theory of healing). After recovery of her character and purpose of life, her quality of life dramatically improved and hormonal status normalized. We believe that the recovery of human character and purpose of life was the central intention of Hippocrates and thus the original essence of western medicine. Interestingly, there are strong parallels to the peyote medicine of the Native Americans, the African Sangomas, the Australian Aboriginal healers, and the old Nordic medicine. The recovery of human character was also the intention of Hahnemann''s homeopathy. We believe that we are at the core of consciousness-based medicine, as recovery of purpose of life and human character has been practiced as medicine in most human cultures throughout time. We believe that such recovery can help some (motivated) patients to survive, even with severe disease.  (+info)

Eating disorders and eating problems among adolescents with type 1 diabetes: exploring relationships with temperament and character. (8/110)

OBJECTIVE: To determine temperament and character among adolescents with type 1 diabetes with and without disordered eating. METHOD: A clinical sample of 199 adolescents from multiple centers with a mean age of 14.1 (SD, 2.5) years were screened and diagnosed for eating disorders. Assessed were temperament and character as conceptualized by Cloninger, glycemic control, and depression. RESULTS: Adolescent patients with clinical eating disorders or subthreshold eating problems had significantly higher mean scores in harm avoidance and lower mean scores in self-directedness. Harm avoidance remained significant even after controlling for depressive pathology. DISCUSSION: This study is the first to show evidence that among youths (in particular, girls) with type 1 diabetes, there is an association between low self-directedness, high harm avoidance, and the presence of eating, weight, and shape pathology. For these particular youths, important implications for clinical practice are outlined.  (+info)

Cloningers dimensional psychobiological model of personality accounts for both normal and abnormal variation in 2 major personality components: temperament and character. Here, we examined the psychometric properties of the Turkish version of the Temperament and Character Inventory (TCI) in a healthy Turkish population, obtaining normative data for the Turkish TCI. The study was conducted in healthy volunteers at both Karadeniz Technical University School of Medicine and Atatürk University School of Medicine (n = 683). The Turkish sample had significantly lower mean scores on Novelty Seeking and Reward Dependence and higher mean scores on Harm Avoidance than the American sample. The Turkish sample had significantly lower scores on Self-Directedness, Cooperativeness, and Self-Transcendence. Self-Directedness and Harm Avoidance, Cooperativeness and Reward Dependence, and Cooperativeness and Self-Directedness were intercorrelated. The Cronbach coeficients were between 0.60 and 0.85 on temperament ...

These clusters are typically not fleeting, they can explain the true if…then… conditionals, and they are manifest in the persons behavioral signature over time. So if I see a rat on my bed, I will tend to behave a certain way. Similarly if a few months later I see a rat in the kitchen, and so forth.. But now that we have clusters of psychological dispositions, we have everything we need for a person to have moral character traits too. For we can just equate a moral character trait with a cluster of cognitive-affective units which pertain to a given moral domain (as Mischel seems willing to do in some places; see Mischel and Shoda 1995: 257; Mischel 1999a: 456). Furthermore, they will be traits with causal powers, since the psychological dispositions which are their components have casual powers. Plus they can be global character traits too-they can be activated in a variety of different situations. In my simple example, the cluster of psychological dispositions associated with my seeing ...
In this paper I discuss connections between self-directedness, integration and higher cognition. I present a model of self-directedness as a basis for approaching higher cognition from a situated cognition perspective. According to this model increases in sensorimotor complexity create pressure for integrative higher order control and learning processes for acquiring information about the context in which action occurs. This generates complex articulated abstractive information processing, which forms the major basis for higher cognition. I present evidence that indicates that the same integrative characteristics found in lower cognitive process such as motor adaptation are present in a range of higher cognitive process, including conceptual learning. This account helps explain situated cognition phenomena in humans because the integrative processes by which the brain adapts to control interaction are relatively agnostic concerning the source of the structure participating in the process. Thus, ...

A self-conscious person usually obsesses over some aspect about themselves. Whether its a physical condition or something more hidden, self-consciousness can create great internal conflict. Young adult characters are filled with angsty self-consciousness. I still remember when I was in high school chemistry class, Phil Howard (name changed to protect the unfortunate) sat next to me one day. He was a great guy--funny and smart--but one particular day, he was less talkative than usual. I was trying to be my normal, joking self, but things werent as easy-going. Finally, the reason became apparent when Phil made the comment, Well, all you probably see when you look at me is this giant pimple on my forehead. Truth--I was too self-conscious of my own perceived flaws to even notice a giant pimple on him, and I told him such ...

Despite trying to hijack the terms open mindedness, imagination and curiosity, Chopra doesnt exhibit any of these traits in the slightest.. He doesnt seem to know the difference between open mindedness, and blind, unyielding belief. A truly open minded person will consider both an idea and the possibility that the idea is false. Chopra invariably chooses the former, whilst utterly closing his mind to the latter. Despite whining about how the mean mean sceptics would have stood in the way of great scientific advances, it hasnt crossed his mind that scepticism plays just as much of a role in the scientific process as acceptance. When Crick and Watson were told that their triple-helix model of DNA was wrong, they didnt moan about closed mindedness. Instead, they continued in their search for truth, and eventually succeeded. Scepticism filtered out the worthless nonsense, thus allowing the truth to be reached. Similarly, scepticism filtered out caloric, The luminiferous aether, and ...
When youre writing a character, its important to know why she is the way she is. Knowing her backstory is important to achieving this end, and one of the most impactful pieces of a characters backstory is her emotional wound. This negative experience from the past is so intense that a character will go to great lengths to avoid experiencing that kind of pain and negative emotion again. As a result, certain behaviors, beliefs, and character traits will emerge.. Characters, like real people, are unique, and will respond to wounding events differently. The vast array of possible emotional wounds combined with each characters personality gives you many options in terms of how your character will turn out. With the right amount of exploration, you should be able to come up with a character whose past appropriately affects her present, resulting in a realistic character that will ring true with readers. Understanding what wounds a protagonist bears will also help you plot out her arc, creating a ...

John C. Maxwell is world renowned for his knowledge of leadership, and his book, The 21 Indispensable Qualities of a Leader (published by Thomas Nelson, 1999), is clearly the place to get started. But first, lets start with a simple question: Why do some people consistently inspire others to follow their lead? According to John C. Maxwell, it is the character qualities they possess. In The 21 Indispensable Qualities of a Leader, he identifies these top traits and then defines them in ways that readers can absorb and utilize. Each character trait is covered in a separate chapter and contains relevant quotes and anecdotes, details on its meaning, suggestions for further reflection, and exercises for improvement. In essence, John provides a mini-course in each quality. So what are the 21 indispensable qualities? They are listed below: 1. CHARACTER: Be a Piece of the Rock 2. CHARISMA: The First Impression Can Seal the Deal. 3. COMMITMENT: It Separates Doers from Dreamers. 4. COMMUNICATION: ...

Subject: Re: A picture of Many Disney Triplets ,,,,here it is (Attached) Thank you, Sherif Elian, and thbanks again to Rich! Interesting families. In all those mentionned, who were the first such twins & triplets in comics (Disney & non-Disney)? The Katzenjammer Kids were not identical twins, but twins nonetheless. Mickey had Ferdie and Mortie, but then one of them was dropped. I guess theres a comics study to be made on this subject, maybe extending it to The Seven Dwarfs and The Smurfs; the exact relationships are not stated, but both offer instances of a host of characters embodying character traits; the Dwarfs are easily distinguishable, but the Smurfs are not, physically speaking.

Shelyn Elementary in Rowland Heights is raising money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society through Pennies for Patients this month. Last year, they raised $2500 and Mrs. Ruud dyed her hair green. This year she challenged the students to raise $5,000 and shell shave her head. If the students reach $3000 Principal Sarah Opatkiewicz promised to show the love and get a big hot pink streak through her hair. We are currently at $1,211 after only one week! Im worried! the principal said in an email. To help raise more money, the school is holding a Show the Love event today at lunch, when students can buy a yard of duct tape for $1 and stick the principal to the wall.. Our character traits this month are empathy and kindness, so were hoping this will help build our students spirits of giving back, she explained. ...
What Is Blushing?. Older meanings of the word Blush come from similar words in other languages such as Blozen a Dutch word meaning to blush and Blusse meaning to blaze or to blush. These words are similar to the old English words Bluschen or Blischen which means to shine brightly, gaze or stare.. In the past, blushing was seen as maidenly and modest; it was an acceptable, even praiseworthy, character trait. The derivations of the word blush show that its meaning has changed through the centuries, even if only subtly.. The modern meaning of the word Blush indicates that blushing is a normal response. Blushing can be caused by a reaction to a sudden strong emotion such as embarrassment, anger or confusion. The sympathetic nervous system reacts to these emotions by causing the blood vessels in the face to widen, thus more blood flows into these vessels, reddening the face as a result.. Although blushing is a normal occurrence, it does not usually occur with great frequency. A person ...
What are some grim theories regarding the future of humanity. Off-hand I will just get to the point and give my personal ideas on what I am convinced is at work currently to do us in as human beings. Uncontrolled greed.. This is a two edged sword. On the one hand it is the driving force within us to want to get things done. This works best when a reward is there for having done something, that reward being either money or a large amount of power. On the other side of this two edged sword is the long term effect on the majority of humans, the ones who are not capable or even want to do too much based on greed. Many people see greed as a negative aspect or character trait. Based on this viewpoint most people do not act from greed to the point of getting very far ahead of others. For me, this is the rational or empathic approach to greed. A little is alright. It is when it is allowed to be expressed to the point of taking so much that it ends up with the current situation of more and more wealth ...

JJ: A number of the stories in Salamandrine revolve around mothers, especially what many would consider bad mothers. Is motherhood a character trait or is it an occult force animating these pieces?. JM: Definitely closer to the latter.

The main finding of this paper is that the temperament trait harm avoidance was positively, and the character trait self-directedness negatively, associated with CRP levels in a population-based cohort of women. In line with this outcome, an inverse correlation between harm avoidance and self-directedness has been observed by others [39], and was confirmed by our data (not shown).. This is the first study examining CRP levels in subjects in which personality traits have been assessed using the TCI. Previous studies regarding personality traits, measured with other instruments, versus CRP levels, also are sparse. Proneness for anger and hostility has however been associated with elevated levels of CRP [4, 40-42]. Also, a study regarding fear for terror attacks revealed, in women but not in men, a positive association between fear and elevated CRP levels after adjustment for generalized anxiety, depressive symptoms and other confounding variables [43].. Although the literature is not unanimous ...
According to the God Gene hypothesis, spirituality has a genetic component, of which (VMAT2) comprises one component by contributing to sensations associated with mystic experiences, including the presence of God and feelings of connection to a larger universe.. The research uses the self-transcendence scale developed by psychologist Robert Cloninger to quantify spirituality using three sub-scales: self-forgetfulness (as in the tendency to become totally absorbed in some activity, such as reading); transpersonal identification (a feeling of connectedness to a larger universe); and mysticism (an openness to believe things that remain unproven, such as ESP). Cloninger suggests that taken together, these measurements are a reasonable way to quantify (make measurable) an individuals propensity to spiritual.. The self-transcendence measure was shown to be heritable by classical twin studies conducted by Lindon Eaves and Nicholas Martin. Their work demonstrated that approximately 40% of the ...
A number of recent studies investigating neurobiological substrates of mindfulness have indicated very specific changes in the function and structure of the insula and its connectivity with other structures related to experiential self-processing and body awareness. In terms of morphometry, two cross-sectional studies comparing GM morphometry between experienced meditators (8 weeks) and naïve controls have shown greater cortical thickness and GM concentration in the right anterior insula (Lazar et al., 2005; Holzel et al., 2008). A more recent study however (Holzel et al., 2011b) did not find such a change. Long-term vipassana meditation practitioners (,6000 h experience) have shown increased GM concentration in the AIC (Holzel et al., 2008), and functional increases in insular cortex have been found during mindfulness and compassion meditative states (Farb et al., 2007; Lutz et al., 2008a; Manna et al., 2010;Ives-Deliperi et al., 2011). A number of MBI studies have demonstrated the functional ...
The TPQ is a 100-item, self-administered, paper-and-pencil, true/false instrument which takes approximately 15 minutes to complete (Cloninger, 1987a). The questionnaire measures the three higher order personality dimensions of novelty seeking, harm avoidance, and reward dependence, each of which measures four lower order dimensions (Cloninger, 1987b). The novelty seeking domain measures the spectrums of exploratory excitability versus stoic rigidity (9 items), impulsiveness versus reflection (8 items), extravagance versus reserve (7 items), and disorderliness versus regimentation (10 items). The harm avoidance domain measures the spectrums of anticipatory worry versus uninhibited optimism (10 items), fear of uncertainty versus confidence (7 items), shyness with strangers versus gregariousness (7 items), and fatigability and asthenia versus vigor (10 items). The reward dependence domain measures the spectrums of sentimentality versus insensitiveness (5 items), persistence versus irresoluteness (9 ...
When intelligence, ruthlessness and empathy co-exist in the same person, one might expect the person concerned to perform certain actions, made possible by the first two attributes, which leave him or her guilt-stricken because of the last. Empathy is a stronger concept than sympathy; empathy allows one to feel what others feel, whether it is joy or pain or grief. When encountered in the same person, it stands to reason that the ability to be merciless would not sit well with the countervailing inclination to empathy. Add power to this precarious mix, and it makes for something explosive.. The eponymous character in (South African director) Gavin Hoods film adaptation (2013) of the first of Orson Scott Cards series of six science fiction novels, Enders Game, is such a complex personality, and although the films running time does not allow the director to dwell at length on the uncomfortable consequences of such a combination of character traits and power, they do show clearly in certain ...

He does the Macys Thanksgiving Day Parade balloons and floats, and talked about how one Super Grover pose was too heroic, when in fact hes an idiot, so he redesigned it to look more bumbling. (The original character designers, in passing him the baton years ago, emphasized that each character was created to exemplify certain preschool character traits, and the most important thing--for characterizations and curriculum--is to ensure that the characters remain true to that purpose. Grover, then, may be bumbling but hes never down on himself, hes the eternal optimist. Thats what Super Grover as well as Regular Grover teaches, which may be why he was my favorite as a kid.) But with the property in so many territories and existing in so many media--print, live, interactive, etc. etc.--the brand is more than just something that ...
Self-Discovery is an important element mental health and in pursuing ones needs, values and aspirations. It helps in building a stronger sense of self, which is helpful from a mental health perspective. It can help make decisions and reduce internal conflicts. Knowing more about own character traits and personality can also help make interactions with other people work better. Since internal and external communication is how individuals get their needs, values and aspirations met, better communication can raise the quality of life and work effectively against various mental health issues. When life is out of sync with the own needs, values and aspirations, anxiety and other symptoms increase. Self-discovery is an important tool among communication-focused approaches to resolve the underlying causes of these symptoms.. Keywords: self-discovery, psychotherapy.

Now first, the negatives: It took me a little while to get into this book. You might think itd be hard to get in because theres so much information thats vital to understanding the story as it unravels, but no, I actually think the way the narrative handles the doling out of information is one of the books many strengths. Rather, I think I just enjoyed the last half of the book so much better than the first because the beginning of the book just isnt as strong as the middle or end. It felt like we spent a lot of ink re-establishing certain character traits or societal prejudices that had already effectively been established. Also, I wasnt able to buy some of the characters in the early-going. I guess most of it gravitates toward Sarenes scenario. Early in the book, you have a lot of scenes that bring home the Sarene is your headstrong heroine and People in Arelon had never seen a strong woman before and Sarene was much smarter than everybody else vibe. You also had a lot of scenes ...
In my opinion, Cheri is correct in saying that being unbiased in distributing the tossed ball, even to virtual players who dont reciprocate, is not definitively indicative of altruism. I have autism and I do believe in fairness and promoting equity in endeavors. Life, however, has shown me that sometimes I run into people who do believe in taking advantage of me. As far as the reason for those autistics who played fair in this video game? It could be that they were very obedient and believed in following the rules without question. I agree with you that the game-playing which the autistics presented is a virtuous character trait to possess. It is sad for me to see that this study endorses being greedy and self-serving as accepted & typical human traits, rather than base, animalistic behaviors. This study points out to me that the researchers began this study with the intent of re-forming autistics into more socially-accepted individuals. It is a great wish of mine that each person (whether ...

One character trait that Ive prayed for many times is compassion. I admit Im not a compassionate person. If you tell me your sad story with tears streaming down your cheeks, I probably wont cry with you. I will most likely just listen, hold your hand if youd like, and give sound advise if requested. For some people thats more than enough; for others I come across as cold and a bit heartless. It isnt my intention. Im like my mom - a very matter-of-fact type of person whos always looking at things on the practical side rather than the emotional side. I know God made me that way, but I also ask Him to teach me ways that I can show compassion to others. Once again, He delivered.. My oldest son has a friend from high school thats going through a rough period in his life (as many are these days). Hes 23 years old, his parents died when he was young, and his adoptive parents moved some years ago to Peru, leaving him with no family here. He lost his job some time ago and has been trying to ...
You have taken off your old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator (Colossians 3:9, 10).. Creativity and adaptability have never been my strong points but God is using my health problems to develop these character traits within me.. As my health has deteriorated I have given up various activities and responsibilities, and I am learning to accept these limitations. Yet I am also learning there may be creative ways to work around some weaknesses, rather than complaining and giving up hope.. Some of these adaptations are rather humorous. I have difficulty sleeping so have acquired quite an accumulation of pillows to keep me comfortable. Thankfully our bed is big and my husband is not, or he would be pushed on the floor by the mountain of pillows which varies nightly. Because of back pain, many times I either carry a heating pad or wear an ice pack under my clothes. Finding outlets and hoping I dont develop leaks can be ...

The claim that there is some sort of distinction to be drawn between knowing what is, and knowing what is right or true, is simply nonsense. There is no such distinction.. I suspect that the reason for this nonsense is to deliver a religious message - to denigrate and insult those who do not share the religious views of those promoting this particular concept of wisdom. As I mentioned in the blog entry referenced above, this list of character traits is associated with a group of people in Ohio more interested in theocracy than in liberty. Consistent with this, a reasonable interpretation of something greater than intelligence is religious faith. It is an attempt to draw a distinction between those who know the world through observation and science, and to assert the superiority of those who are aware of a greater truth probably available through scripture, divine revelation, or a personal relationship with God.. It is interesting to find insults and denigration of others with different views ...
Before he died, my father-in-law gave me sage advice. I was a pleaser, he said; someone who enjoyed making other people feel good. Just as I was blooming with pleasure at an unexpected compliment from this reserved man came the sting.. Nothing wrong with pleasing everyone, he said, except that I tried to please all parties at the same time-continually, and often at a cost to myself.. It is true and you see me here doing it just now. Why begin an article with a self-put-down?. I have a good and strong sense of self, in the psychological sense of the term, I told my brother. Which is why I have no problem putting myself down; because, you see, compliments and criticisms are not linked with my self-worth. Shyam said he didnt even understand the sentence, let alone the underlying concept.. It has taken me some time to own up to this character trait as a potential flaw. For a while, I thought that the reason I allowed my sentences to trail off tentatively was because I didnt want to appear ...
I like reading about bad boys that have good hearts and strong morals. Maybe they just prefer to do things on their own terms in their own way. When I think of military men, I think strong Alpha males that follow the rules and do what they are told and expect complete obedience from their team too. When I think of bad boys in romantic suspense I still think of all the same character traits but see a man that is more independent, follows his hunches and maybe does things in an unconventional manner that is no less effective than the rule followers. I see them as bounty hunters, private detectives, rogue or undercover FBI or DEA agents. Someone with an air of mystery that is comfortable making his own decisions without being ordered ...
ifnanything your thesis would better explain the rational if indeed the taadikbwere mentioned and the chacham wasnt. it seems like you take for granted that the taadik (a character trait) also has extensive chachma which j dont necessarily see being the case. If someone was just a taadik I dont see why there is a Java Amina that there would be little to teach him. If a thong the thirst to learn more would create a feeling of greater obligation upon the father as a mechanaych to feed his thirst for knowledge. As a father I would feel much more pressure to ensure I was keeping up with the Torah stimulation that my righteous sons thirst for truth and knowledge demanded.. ReplyDelete ...
Usually an analytical writer, Doronila even stooped to rabble-rousing by ending his column with a sarcasm: Who runs the country - the INC? . Even Rene Saguisag , a human-rights lawyer and veteran of a hundred demonstrations during martial law that created traffic in Manila at a time when daily monstrous traffic was still unheard of, even called the INC a super bully, and compared the 2-million strong religious sect to the superpower state of 1.3 billion people - China - which he claimed is similarly bullying us in the South China Sea.. This Yellow Hordes distinctive character trait of having double standards is clearly infectious.. I dont remember any column by Doronila complaining about the demonstrations at the EDSA Shrine in 2001, which paralyzed the Ortigas business area for four days and led to Estradas fall. I dont remember hearing Saguisag point out that EDSA Tres in 2001, in which the INC provided most of the warm bodies, was a case of bullying President Arroyo by the camp of ...
Notwithstanding the increasing interest into the influence of reward on human behavior, one question that remained unresolved is why some individuals respond more consistently to the rewarding outcomes of their actions. In the current study, we aimed to address this puzzling variability by identifying stable anatomical substrates that may account for it. The results revealed that gray-matter volume in specific parts of the lateral prefrontal cortex predicted the degree of reward dependence that human subjects display during the acquisition of a novel skill. This predictive relationship was specific to reward dependence, in other words to the quantitative trial-by-trial relationship between reward and subsequent performance. No such relationship was found between brain structure and performance feedback, or the magnitude of overall reward-related on-line learning gains. Further, the predictive relationship between brain structure and reward dependence was specific to the most dorsal parts of the ...
We model environmentally conscious consumption behavior (ECCB) with three psychometric values constructs: Schwartzs Self-Transcendence Values, Kahles List of Values, and Richins and Dawsons Materialism. Comparison of competing models and non-nested specification tests lead to a statistically significant model of ECCB which reasonably fits our author-designed and collected survey data. In addition, benevolence and universalism (elements of Schwartzs construct), and acquisition centrality (an element of Materialism) exhibit statistical significance and conform to expectations.

Symptoms stage 1 was chronic fatigue, memory difficulty and difficulty sleeping. Stage 2 started about 7 months of being in the apartment, in addition to stage one symptoms: headaches, blurry vision, disorientation, lack of appetite, increased chronic fatigue, equilibrium problems, and lack of libido. Stage 3 was: mini strokes, pain in joints and muscles, headaches, migraines- thought my head was going to explode, passing out. After a few weeks of feeling terrible I was admitted to the ER; but heres the thing after all the test the ER doctors did they said I was fine and to go home. So, I went home and within 24 hours my symptoms had gotten worse. After leaving my apartment for about two weeks I realized my symptoms has lessened in severity so I moved out. Health continued to improve until about three months afterwards, at this point whatever my body was fighting off ceased to do so-my metabolism, digestion, adrenals, thyroid, pituitary functions all seemed to slow or something just wasnt ...
Interesting points. This has to do with a writing paradigm I dont really control too much on other sites. It was written for a place that has the norm as second person and typically I can see the merits of it and Im used to it now. Third is better overall if were being hones here, and I prefer it for the power a third person narration gives me as a writer, but I didnt want to rewrite it all since the prose didnt feel right when I tried. It would also mean Id have to maintain two versions if I planned to post on /mlp/ and on FImfiction. The workload just isnt worth it.. As for using Anonymous, thats also a story paradigm for the place I wrote this for, but I prefer Anon over named characters anyhow. For me, reading James or Cameron feels pretty cringey, whereas Anon is just a stand in for a human character. Its just a lot more inoffensive conceptually. But if you want, you can always download the story then clt+f anon with whatever name you want. I cant serve every single ...

But let me also take another issue, which you all are familiar with. But before then I will talk about what informed the appointment of the medical doctor who is here with us today, Dr Samayain. As some of you may know, a lot of people raised issues about his appointment on the ground that he is not biologically from Bayelsa State and I, in furtherance of the openness and open mindedness which we brought to this government and in furtherance of the ideals of the unification of the Ijaw nation which informed our appointment of a commissioner for the first time in this state who is not from Bayelsa State geographically. I also took that decision and I believe that subsequent governments will see the need to make appointments on the basis of merit. Dr Samayains appointment showcases the need for us to rally round our people in the Ijaw nation. I do not see why a man who has spent his entire working career serving and taking care of the sick in this state should be stopped from attaining the ...
Most of the patients that I see in my Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics practice have ADHD. All ADHD patients have a mixture of strengths and weaknesses just like the rest of us. Attention is a weakness. Impulsive behavior is a weakness. Absent mindedness is a weakness. I have ADHD and I am a typical absent-minded professor on occasions. However, there are many strengths that ADHD itself can provide. The endless amount of energy in ADHD individuals allows them to be involved in many things. Their schedule will often be much fuller than that of their colleagues. Their work volume will frequently be very high if they can block out distractions and interruptions. We sometimes think of ADHD as a disability. In actuality, it really depends on the situation. Sitting still in a classroom may be hard. However, having the necessary energy and stamina to see something to its conclusion is a strength. Having ADHD and being able to survive on only a few hours of sleep per night is a real advantage if ...

We break down each of the 24 characters, their abilities, and how they stack up to the rest of the roster.. In Genshin Impact, characters are everything. Each of the 24 currently available characters has unique elemental skills, weapons, and passive bonuses to activities like cooking and mining.

We evolved as an extraordinarily social species, with group cooperation a key adaptation. Of course every animal looks out for itself, to get its genes into the next generation. But humans balanced that selfishness against cooperativeness so the whole group could thrive and replicate. That required being able to tell who was really cooperative, and…
1. Characters are NOT place-holders: I recently saw a movie that was quite well done, yet many of the characters felt flat. I thought about it that night and realized that the issue was that the characters felt like place-holders rather than unique individuals. The story was compelling, but the characters were used almost like moving pieces, there mostly to make the storys point. In other words, even for your secondary characters, give them their own unique back-stories and motivations. For example, if you have a drunk father, remember he is his own unique character, not simply The Drunk Father. Your rebellious teenager is his own unique character, not just The Rebellious Teenager. This seems like an obvious, overly-general strategy, but I know that for me just keeping this in mind as I write has helped a lot ...
In Creating a Character Table, we introduced the character table as a way of representing a number of characters simultaneously. In that problem, we found a character table representing an unrooted binary tree on a collection of taxa.. Of course, in practice, the problem operates in reverse. We first need to generate a character table before we can model a phylogeny on this table. In modern genetics, a reliable way to obtain a large number of characters is by using SNPs. As mentioned in Counting Subsets, for a given SNP, we can divide taxa into two sets depending on which of two bases is present at the nucleotide, thus defining the split of a character.. ...
