The personality of any individual is heavily influence by environmental, societal, and biological factors. One of the most important environmental factors which shape the personality of any individual is that of culture. It is important to consider the impacts of culture on personality of any individual because of the fact that to other cultures, Western concepts and philosophies are not essentially applicable. It has been shown by research that across cultures, there are a lot of variations in personality traits. In this particular case of Samantha, though she was beautiful and competent enough to be a good dancer, but the negative attitude of the society made her to think that she is not good enough to be a dancer. The societal response to Samantha was discouraging and instead of supporting her, the society behavior altered her perceptions. She was badly discouraged and even started drinking which further deteriorated her health. The confidence of Samantha shattered badly. She even started thinking of her mother who went through similar kind of situation and Samantha started believing that the history is repeating itself. Because of the habit of negative thinking which developed in her because of society, he also started thinking wrong about her husband. When her husband came to know about Samantha’s situation, he at once contacted psychologist and also had a chat with Samantha. During discussion with her husband, Samantha spoke up about the way she thinks. As in case of Samantha, it is evident that many individuals who are competent; their talents are not properly utilized because of the behavior of the society. Moreover in such cases, any individual should listen to his own heart and think himself. One should be able to analyze himself that what is…...

...best friend would soon try to end my short life. Running down a never ending hall way, ankles bleeding, tears rolling down my cheeks, I was too young to die. Why was this happening to me? Samantha was my sister only hours before, and now she wanted to murder me in cold blood. Samantha was my cat, and I was three years old. In the early years, Samantha was a regular cat living the typical suburban cat lifestyle. She slept all day and enjoyed being rubbed on on her belly as she purred so softly. With her golden fur coat, she stood out from all the other neighborhood cats. Every once in a while, a dead bird would find its way to our door step. In a weird way, I always thought the dead animals she would bring us was her way of saying thanks for the love and care we gave her. I was too young at that time to understand that these tiny gifts that she brought to me were foreshadowing what would come later. In my little eyes, Samantha was the best cat and friend that any child could dream of having; but then things started to change. As the days passed and changed, so did Samantha’s characteristics that I loved so dearly. Her personality began to fade away from what I had known it to be. Instead of playing with the other cats in the neighborhood, Samantha began to display aggressive behavior and engage in cat fights. One morning she came home limping with cuts covering her face. I attempted to pet her, but she rejected my efforts with a hiss......

When that occurs, team members are said to engage in groupthink. Here are some examples: * A civilian worker at a large Air Force base recalls a time that groupthink overcame her team’s decision-making ability. She was a member or a process improvement team that an Air Force general had formed to develop a better way to handle the base’s mail, which included important letters from high-ranking military individuals. The team was composed mostly of civilians, and it took almost a month to come up with a plan, the problem: The plan was not a process improvement. Recalls the civilian worker, “I was horrified. What used to be 8 steps; now there were 19.” The team had devised a new system that resulted in each piece of mail being read by several middle managers before reaching its intended recipient. The team’s new plan slowed down the mail considerably, with an average delay of 2 weeks. Even though the team members all knew that new system was worse than its predecessor, no one wanted to question the team’s solidarity. The problem lasted for almost an......

...Kaplan University Statute to the Samantha Smith Slip and Fall Case Donna Barnes PA201-06 Statute: Ind. Code Ann. § 34-51-2-7 (West 2013). The statute states that action based on fault against a defendant or defendants maybe treated as a single party. It also states that the jury is to determine the percentage of fault the claimant, of the defendant of any non-party. If the percentage of fault to the claimant is greater than fifty percent of the total fault involved in the incident that caused the injury the jury shall return a verdict for the defendant. If the percentage of fault of the claimant is not greater than fifty percent of the total, the jury shall determine the total amount of damages the claimant would be entitled to recover if contributory fault were disregarded.

...DELEGATE POWER, OR KEEP IT CLOSE? Summary: Samantha Parks owner and CEO of SPARKS, a small agency that develops marketing strategies for high-fashion firms took care of most of the projects from start to end. As the firm expands she realizes that the work needs to be delegated so that it may not be totally dependent kind of a situation. There are two thoughts in this case, one is top executives need to stay close to the core of the business and another is outsourcing and delegating as much as you can so that executives can focus their attention towards most important decision making and control aspects. Facts: 1) Samantha kept a tight rein on her business. 2) A hairstyling chain wants a new marketing and promotion strategy. 3) Should Samantha delegate or handle as usual? 4) As the firm is growing she would not be capable of handling many aspects. Analyzing: Delegation in general means giving responsibilities to co-workers. Samantha’s firm grew to extent where she has to delegate certain actions to her employees. The delegation should be appropriate for the success. The employee to whom the responsibility is given should be motivated. There is indeed a risk if the employee is not capable. It is important that Samantha herself identifies the importance and criticality of the project. If the project is important than she should take responsibility. Moreover Samantha should be aware of her capability. She can involve the employees in the delegation process......

...Samantha Sanchez Boston University July 22, 2015 Self-consciousness and gender vs. depression In the current research it has have provided a wide overview of both founding and the present appreciation of the dispositional construct of self-consciousness. Several studies have established the significance of gender and psychological implications. Such as mortality concerns and self-consciousness. As important factors in determining depression levels in human beings (Leary & Hoyle, 2013).

Case Stude of Ethical Conflicts

...Coty Hampton Business Ethics Cohorts 49 Ethical Conflicts in Ethical Companies There's a story making the rounds about a consultant who was called into a lumber company. Profits were slipping and management couldn't figure out what was causing it. All of the other performance measures were stable or increasing. The consultant did what consultants do, talking with a large number of employees. He observed several things about this particular lumber company, including the fact that working conditions were somewhat austere and that the dominant leadership style was autocratic, almost to the point of being abusive. In one of his many conversations, the consultant asked an employee how it was that, given the difficult working conditions and harsh leadership style, there wasn't more absenteeism, poor production or any of the other typical symptoms of an organization that was "hard" on its workers. The employee answered, "Oh that's easy. When we get frustrated, or angry we just feed the hog." Seeing the puzzled look on the consultant's face the employee explained. The "hog" was the big mechanical wood chipper at the back of the plant. All unusable scrap was fed to the hog to make the wood chips that go into particle board, one of the least profitable products the company manufactured. "When we get upset," he explained, "we take finished lumber and feed the hog." (And the company never knows where the chips came from. After all, you can't tell scrap wood from finished lumber......
