Communication - Communication embodies the ability for one to convey a message through the use of verbals (words) and non-verbals (behaviours) in a process to compare, transmit and interpret messages.

For this process to be effective the message should be transmitted with "maximum accuracy and minimum effort" (Garside and Kleiner 2007) with "mindfulness" (Burgoon, Bieger and Waldron 2002) from both parties. Mindfulness requires the sender and receiver to be alert to "the content, situation and sequence of verbal messages, as well as the paralinguistic cues, gestures, facial expression, body movements and cues produced by the physical environment that occupy verbal messages" (Burgoon, Burger and Waldron 2000)....   [tags: Informative] 1449 words

Social psychology seems to have many origins; critically discuss the historical and philosophical roots of modern social psychology - There are many explanations for the origins of modern social psychology. It is therefore important to consider that social psychology cannot be traced back to one single source of origin (Burr, 2003). Hence, this is the reason why there are debates of what social psychology is. Allport (1985) described social psychology as “the study of people’s thoughts, feelings, and behaviours which are influenced by the actual, imagines, or implied presence of others”. As seen from this definition there is a direct link between social science and the individual psychology (Sewel, 1989)....   [tags: Informative] 1784 words

History and Origins of the Service Learning Practice - III. Review of Related Literature History of Service-Learning The history and origins of the service-learning practice in the United States is older than its own name (Clearinghouse, Titlebaum, Daprano, Baer, & Brahler, 2004).

The Black Plague Was Non-discriminatory. - “To put matters simply, it [the plague] did not spare those of any age or fortune,” (15). With this account, Nicephorus Gregoras, in my opinion, impeccably sums up The Black Death: The Great Mortality of 1348-1350. A large percentage of the contributors to John Aberth’s book of documents acknowledge that the plague did not discriminate against any person or group of persons. For this reason, I consider the overall sense of what the plague meant to the people of the mid 1300s to be a looming understanding that the plague could not be avoided, no matter how wealthy, powerful, or religious a person claimed to be....   [tags: informative] 797 words

Males and Females Have The Same Average Intelligence - Why are males and females so different even though they are both the same species. This is because of differences in the brain’s structure in males and females. Males have much larger brains than women because of their larger skulls.

Now, we know that this is not accurate because females and males have the same number of brain cells; female’s brain cells are just more densely packed to fit their smaller skulls....   [tags: informative]

Touching the Void - ... Moreover, Hawking likes Yates more than Simpson possibly that is why Hawking agreed to watch over their camping kit. This is the psychology of persuasion where Yates has the likeability factor: I got to know Simon quite well. I don't know whether it was because of his personality, or whether it was because he was more forgiving towards me, being a non-climber in that environment. But I found it very hard to get to know Joe. (2009). As Simpson and Yates climb the mountain, their autonomic nervous system that comprises the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems are active; the sympathetic nervous system prepares the body for emergency action, slows down the digestive process, and activates the release of hormones so that the body can act rapidly, while the parasympathetic nervous system helps the body to conserve energy, promotes the digestive process, and slows the heartbeat (SparkNotes Editors, 2005)....   [tags: Informative] 1457 words
