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)

Comparison of temperament and character profiles of anesthesiologists and surgeons: a preliminary study. (3/110)

BACKGROUND: Given the high levels of stress in anesthesiologists and also their close working liaison with surgeons, it may be worthwhile to compare the personality profiles of these two groups of professionals. AIM: To compare the personality profiles of surgeons and anesthesiologists, using a well-standardized and validated instrument. SETTINGS AND DESIGN: Survey (cross-sectional) on surgeons and anesthesiologists working in several medical institutes in India. MATERIAL & METHODS: The self-report Temperament and Character Inventory, 125-item version (TCI-125) was mailed out to an incidental sample of surgeons and anesthesiologists working in medical institutes in India. 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)

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.

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: ...

The characters arent flat like a lot of (especially beginner) OCs, which tend to fall back on edgy, cute, dead parents or any combination of those. Any of those aspects COULD work, but it needs to have a purpose and influence the characters traits in some way. I think you did that really well! Great job! ...

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 ...
MC: I cant say exactly how it affected my life in that manner because that would be an amazing self-psychoanalysis that would liberate me from a lot of other bad character trait I have, but...I can say this - Enlisting at 18 is mandatory for all Israeli men and it does brings about adulthood pretty fast. You turn from a nice little teenager to a soldier and this gives you self control, discipline and a more mature and balanced perspective on life. Its not all fun an games, theres a price to pay. Especially in Israel. And it gets you thinking about whats important in life and what are your dreams.

Summary:. Ryan Knighton writes in his irreverent memoir that his sometimes comical, sometimes dangerous clumsiness-he smashed his fathers car into a boulder and nearly backed a forklift over a co-worker-registered on others as an unfortunate character trait, the carelessness of a distracted teenager. On Knightons eighteenth birthday, a doctor offered another explanation: retinitis pigmentosa. The diagnosis of a degenerative eye disease that causes night blindness and tunnel vision before progressing to complete blindness rescued his moral standing. This rescue and the diagnosis seemed to increase rather than moderate his youthful drive for independence along with his search for strategies to make his disability less conspicuous. He tested his independence by attending Simon Fraser University and sharing an apartment with a deaf student, and he discovered that the chaos and flowing alcohol of the local punk rock clubs made him indistinguishable from other stumbling revelers. The clubs became a ...
Ryan, glad you could make it," Trent Collins greeted him with an outstretched hand. Ryan shook it, and was immediately struck with distaste. The handshake was as limp as a cold fish. Trent Collins had already been a shallow, pompous asshole at the tender age of twelve, and adulthood had only accentuated his less-desirable character traits. He had always cultivated an air of piety and false dignity, something that looked decidedly out-of-place on a pre-teen boy. Couple that with the arrogance to believe that his status as the bosses eldest son gave him the right to order grown men around, and on the day Spud Collins had dealt a fearsome ass-whipping to his older brother, it was no surprise to that hed had a cheering section of EMTs ...

michael valentine, "As Dick Cheney has proved the Office of Vice President can be used as a very blunt tool and isnâ t a do nothing job. " Cheney was chosen by W to add gravitas to the ticket. Just goes to show you that gravitas is an overrated character trait. Had there been no VP, W would have had to go on his own against Gore, and that race isnt even close. "With a 72 year old four time cancer patient as the head of the ticket the choice of Palin as his running mate isnâ t a joke. This woman winks and we are suppose to forget that she believes that dinosaurs and men walked together just a few thousand years ago?" So, is your objection with McCain that he is 72 years old or that he has cancer? I know many 72-year-olds who are doing quite well for themselves, thank you very much. As to his cancer, two words: Lance Armstrong. As to Palins belief system on evolution, the First Amendment and Article V of the U.S. Constitution allows her to have whatever belief system she wants, whether you ...
Im not much on "self-help" books, but the advanced copy of Drs. Les and Leslie Parotts upcoming book "What Kind of Parent do you want to be?" was pretty good. It is set up in short chapters that can be read in any order. Each chapter contains clear, concise definitions of the character trait being discussed as well as self-tests and discussion questions. Based on their research and information, Im a better parent than I thought (raising boys, you always wonder!), but I could work on my patience and being more intuitive about my childrens feelings. The only negative for me personally was the fact that this couple feels the need to get away from their children to discuss them, which I thought was kind of odd. They preface their own get-aways with the fact that a get-away is not necessary, but....Oh well, they know a lot about this mystery role called parenting, and they are wise enough to encourage us all to lean on God and depend on Him to fill in the gaps that we inevitably leave in the ...

While weve been quiet this month, weve stayed busy working to make Demi: Labyrinth of the Gods even better. While it saddened us to cancel the Kickstarter campaign we put up in January, we know now that it is for the better. As you can see above, weve begun constructing a laser cutter! This will allow us to create better prototypes, faster. This means getting them out to prototype reviewers, you-tubers, bloggers; it means well have a lot more interaction and footage to share when we relaunch our Kickstarter. Prototyping is a major area we failed at, with the Kickstarter - we just didnt have the prototypes available that the community expected. We own that, and this time around well be able to create them far more efficiently. Theyll also be better quality as a result!. The extra time has also meant furthering the balance of the game. There is a certain character trait that we were unaware allowed for some unbalanced play, that we recently caught. We missed it, our testers missed it - but ...

Vanishing point fails on many levels. The most obvious one is a distinct lack of originality. Most obviously, the whole thing is a pretty direct rip-off of TNGs The Next Phase, in which Ro and Geordi go through a very similar experience. There are also shades of TNGs Remember Me and Realm of Fear.. Ripping off previous offerings in not automatically an episode-killing sin; what matters is whether you can put a novel spin on the idea, and how well you pull it off. Unfortunately Vanishing Point doesnt do too well here either. For one thing, I was already a bit sick of Hoshis whiny attitude to the life shes chosen for herself. If shes so afraid of space travel and all it entails, she should go back home to her old job. If she does think its worth the risk to be out here, she should get on with it. But to stay on the ship and just endlessly complain about everything is the worst of both worlds, and its a seriously annoying character trait. Its even worse that this comes ten months after ...
Amazing. The group itself was surprised at the amount of material moldering away in various institutional film archives in Buenos Aires. The most impressive-- & charming-- piece of filmmaking showcased was, to these eyes, a Western parody rather obviously titled El Último Cowboy. The selection of clips evidenced excellent visual, photographic & directorial quality; it seemed a well-acted, spot-on satire featuring droll, dry humor which may (or may not?) be another regional Mendocino character trait ...
First off, we learned about adjectives last week. I saw the idea I think on Pinterest at some point for doing this activity with character traits, but I adapted it for adjectives. They had to come up with 9 adjectives to describe themselves. It was a great self-esteem boost! I modeled for them how to do it first, and I let them come up with adjectives to describe me. I need to do that more often, because they were so sweet! If you are having a bad day, do this activity! You will feel great afterwards!!!! You can get the adjective template {HERE} ...
Later, we discover that under the mask, Kroenens unbounded Nietzschean will to self-transcendence has transformed his body into a mere machine. He began by surgically removing his eyelids and lips, then never looked back. Tin Woodsman style, he progressively replaced his organs with intricate clockwork mechanisms as the blood in his veins turned to dust. Eventually, he becomes a mere puppet of Rasputin.. A third member of Project Ragna Rok is the beautiful blonde Ilsa Hauptstein, who first appears in a black SS cap (get it?). Rasputin grants her eternal life, youth, and the power to serve him. And she does.. Rasputin succeeds in opening the portal, but before the Ogdru Jahad can be released, it is blown up by a team of vulgar American GIs (where were the Brits?) guided by Professor Trevor "Broom" Bruttenholm, who is the paranormal adviser to President Roosevelt and the head of a top secret Bureau of Paranormal Research and Defense.. Kroenen is apparently killed but his body disappears. Ilsa ...
I was notified by a Google Alert that my name was mentioned on this site. What did I find? Amazing that a great testimonial was met by such venom. So, I defended myself. You all are not the first to have shown such a mean spirit. Advertising? Hardly. Thats not the goal. I mention my book and websites and the amount of wonderful people who come to me as a way of defending my business model. But you prefer to think those that come to me as fools because you are certainly smarter than they. You guys want to know who I am and what I stand for or do you just want to attack? You have made yourself clear about the type of people you are and how intellectually lazy you are. You have not at any time even slightly attempted to read anything I have written or suggest a patient do about any given condition. Your opinion is that if it isnt medical, its a scam. Unfortunately, I dont have a natural cure for narrow mindedness. Enjoy yourselves and the inside the box world you live in. Ill just carry on ...

When it comes to determining which Filmation characters you want in MOTUC, what do you find yourself measuring by the most? Is it the number of appearances that had in the episodes? Is it their overall look or character design? Is it the significant role they had in the show? Is it gender? Is it faction? Or, is it something else completely? True, some times it may be all of these. But, think hard and ask yourself, which is the one that you consider most when wanting a figure?

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 ...
A second theme was the protection/projection of the Sesame brand that I just mentioned. Louis does a lot of this as he vets everything from scripts to DVD covers. 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 ...

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..

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 ...
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.

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..

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 ...

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 ...

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.. ...

Hello Im working on a project within visual studio 2015 and coding in vb.net. I have a datagridview that displays data from an MS Access database. There is a field name Condition in the database that is in long text.. There is another form where the user inputs the data and then it entered into the database. The issue Im having is when the user opens the application that I have created in visual studio, the cell in the datagridview that shows the Condition field is truncating the data. Interestingly when I actually view the access database, I see everything that the user entered. I would like to know if there is a maximum number of characters that a cell in the datagridview can display? If not , then what code or property can I use to increase the amount of characters the cell will display? One of the cells that is being truncated has a character count of 254. Any help will be appreciated ...

Purpose. Parents have important roles in child rearing, but the influence of their personality on rearing practices and their impact on the behavior of children has received surprisingly little attention. The aim of the current study was to investigate the relationship between parents personality and childrens problem behaviors.Materials and Methods. Participants consisted of 190 preschool outpatients (104 boys, 86 girls) and their parents who visited traditional Korean pediatric clinics with minor physical symptoms as chief complaints. The personality profiles of the both parents were measured by the Temperament and Character Inventory and childrens behavior problems by the Child Behavior Checklist 1.5-5. Correlation and stepwise regression analysis were employed for the statistical analyses.Results. The temperament trait of Harm Avoidance and the character traits of Self-Directedness and Self-Transcendence of the parents were significantly correlated with childrens problem behaviors.

Now while there are no other well developed human characters there is another well-developed character, Caeser the ape played by human actor Andy Serkis through motion capture animation. Every facial expression and tidbit of personality exuberated by Serkis is captured and animated into a computer generating ape. This is done extremely well but forsakes realism in the design of the apes as they look computer generated which doesnt bother me in the slightest because even if it looked like a real ape I would know it was fake. Caeser is different from your everyday ape as he has an enhanced intelligence due to the experimental drug administered by Will. As a result of his enhanced intelligence Caeser lives as a human does with Will and is treated in a way which will help him reach his full potential. This establishes a family relationship among the three characters namely Will, Caeser and Wills father and not only are they a family but they are a happy family. In the first act of the film there ...
Henrietta Lacks died at age 31, her body racked with cancerous tumors growing out of control. She was a poor black woman in the public ward of Johns Hopkins hospital in 1951, a person who hid her intense pain from her family and friends as long as she could. Her story is one that could have been forgotten, if not for the fact that the cells taken from her cancerous tumors transformed science, research, and medicine.. The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot is a complex book. At times it is a biography of Henrietta Lacks and her family, from the early years of the century until today. At times it is a science volume, explaining the ways in which HeLa cells have contributed to cancer research, immunization research, and so forth. At times it is a memoir of one persistent researcher looking for answers. In all aspects, its a look at the history of race relations in America, especially in terms of medical care and privacy. I found it so fascinating, I did not want to stop reading, in ...
Men who have narcissistic personalities may be more prone to psoriasis, according to a new study.. Both men and women can be narcissistic, however the study, carried out by researchers from the Universities of Michigan and Virginia, found that men experience far more negative reactions in their skin and health than women as a result.. Narcissism means a personality dominated by characteristics such as entitlement and inflated self-importance. This type of personality dramatically raises, in men, levels of the stress hormone cortisol. In narcissistic women, the levels of cortisol are not so raised.. Cortisol is a hormone produced by the body that regulates a wide range of bodily functions, including inflammation. Small bursts of acute stress levels can actually increase levels of cortisol and reduce inflammation. [quote]However regular chronic or persistent stress levels, which often accompanies a narcissistic personality due to the perfectionist and exploitative character traits, can lead to an ...

Well-known writer Philip K. Dick used the word "android" in opposition to the expression "human" as metaphor, not to identify artificial entities.. In his reflection on human nature, Dick guesses the impossibility to accept a pure definition of the living as opposite to non-living. Hes therefore convinced that the human being cannot be anymore defined in relation to ontology, but only to its way of being into the world. His book are filled up with creatures that, human from the biological point, have an android soul, in the sense that they are not able to experience any kind of feeling.. The writer, during one of his speculations, ask himself how a sophisticated intelligent machine can be negated to humanity, in the moment that it interrupts its habitual occupations to come to our rescue. In this case, he answers: "Youll end up attributing, plenty of gratitude, a human character that the analysis of its transistors and relays would proclaim impossible". Therefore, he ends: "A scientist that ...
It is possible that a norepinephrine transporter (NET) gene polymorphism is involved in the reward dependence-related personality trait. Although all previous research findings are based on Cloningers model, it is thought necessary to examine the relationship between NET gene polymorphisms and the personality dimension of reward dependence, as assessed by not only Cloningers model but also various other personality assessments, such as the five-factor model. In this study, we examined the relationship between three NET gene polymorphisms (1287G/A, -182T/C, and -3081A/T) and NEO-FFI, which is one of the self-report questionnaires based on the five-factor model of personality. The genotype and allele frequencies of the NET gene polymorphisms observed in this study were consistent with the genotype [1287G/A: χ2 (2)=0.695, p=0.707; -182T/C: χ2 (2)=2.274, p=0.321] and allele [1287 G/A: χ2 (1)=0.061, p=0.805; -182T/C: χ2 (1)=1.029, p=0.310] frequencies observed in the HapMap ...
BACKGROUND: Surgeons have a reputation for decisiveness and self-confidence, which suggests that they may tolerate uncertainty poorly and therefore be less capable than other doctors of experiencing clinical equipoise. Their typical behaviour is characteristic of the stable extrovert personality and so they may prefer spontaneous clinical judgement over randomized trials. The aim of this study was to compare personality dimensions and tolerance of uncertainty among surgeons and hospital physicians, to determine whether differences in either property might help to explain the apparently poor performance of surgeons in conducting randomized controlled trials. METHODS: This was a postal questionnaire study of 1000 consultant general surgeons and 1000 consultant physicians. Respondents completed a short self-assessment of Eysenck personality dimensions, Budners Intolerance of Ambiguity scale and a short questionnaire about attitudes to randomized trials. Correlation and multiple regression analyses were
