I have really good attention to detail and I think this coupled with my sense of empathy helps me to actively listen and observe carefully. I am able to read the cues a person may be giving out verbally, through body language, tone, and facial expressions to develop a sense of what is going on with the person as a whole. I am also comfortable addressing when say the tone and expression don’t match the words that are being spoken. I have always found myself to be skillful in this with adults and adolescents and now in my work with children I am finding it even more important. I am finding those little clues in actions are so important to understanding what is going on with that child.
Individuals with higher levels of empathy are responsible of the consequences of their actions toward others so it is less likely to hurt other people and more likely to help them (McPhedran, 2009). Therefore empathy function as a wall against aggression because it provides an immediate feedback that make individuals aware and more sympathetic of another's suffering, so aggressive actions are discouraged (Hastings et al., 2000). In addition of aggression inhibition, empathy functions as a motivator in eliciting altruistic feelings (Hastings, Zahn-Waxler, Robinson, Usher, & Bridges, 2000; Palmer,2005; Zahn-Waxler & Radke-Yarrow,
In both groups low self-esteem was established as the most impairing factor and an important precondition of IP, and it was consecutively followed by the fear of failure and fear of success. However, the difference between students and working professionals was found, as students presented higher levels of fear of failure, whereas workers' levels of fear of success was more significant. In terms of IP's impact on individuals' career prospects, career planning and motivation to undertake leading position were the most affected. The more impostor feelings were reported by the participants, the less career planning and motivation to lead they expressed. Negative effect of IP on career striving failed to reach
If the task was repetitive and the participants knew what they were doing and therefore, knew that they will succeed at the task performance increased. Whereas more difficult tasks and therefore tasks with participants who did not know how well they are going to perform enhanced the participants nervousness and put pressure on them, hence the performance was inhibited. The social facilitation theory also states that if the task is not simple, then there will be a larger margin of error because of nervousness.
Formulate a definition of Empathy- Contribute to relationship maintenance, along with social support. By being selfless, helps look at the perspective of another 's point of view. To attain sensitivity and understanding to how other 's feel. "When you feel empathy with another person, you identify him or her and accurately understand his or her thoughts and feelings" (Rogers, 1957). *Consider importance in effective communication.
Does Empathy Influence Helping Behaviors? There is a correlation regarding being empathetic will result in helping others. Better interpreted, “Social cognitive skills such as empathy (matching the emotional state of another) and theory of mind (understanding others’ mental states) are crucial for everyday interactions, cooperation, and cultural learning” (Goldstein & Winner, 2012). So therefore if social cognitive skills are crucial for everyday interactions as stated by Goldstein and Winner (2012), there must be a reason for helping others which Graziano, Habashi, Tobin and Sheese (2007) mention, “First, motivation is a state with potential energy, a force within an individual, which is directed toward some goal.” The above statements profoundly suggest that one must have a motivation, theory of mind and empathy to be able to help another person but how much influence empathy has is an interesting question for one to be willing to help another. Graziano, Habashi, Sheese, and Tobin (2007) explore links amongst motivation, empathy and helping behavior.
They saw in their research that “positive and negative age stereotypes tended to have a beneficial or adverse effect” (230) which coincide with the other researchers that concluded the same idea. They also saw that doing their research that people tend to base their lives and ethics on stereotypes giving to them. They stated that “self-stereotypes generate expectation that in turn, are move likely to be self-filling prophecies” (233) which proves their theory right. They notice just as the other authors/researchers that positive stereotypes is beneficial to society than
A leader’s lack of EI leads to higher losses since they fail to communicate effectively and motivate workers thereby occasioning turnover. The company then spends more money in the recruitment and training of new staff. Further, lack of EI leads to disagreements with clients, which translates into lost revenue and hence losses to the company. Having low EI gives way to irrational thinking and poor emotional understanding. Leaders with low EI fail to accept and understand their emotions thus become unable to control them.
The amount of useful concepts gained through the learning of Emotional Intelligence (EQ) will have a profound impact on both personal and professional life. The purpose of EQ is having the capability to express, understand and manage our emotions as-well-as having the ability to understand, interpret, and respond to the emotions of other (Bradberry & Greaves, 2009). For the purpose of the final assignment I will discuss what I learned, the results from the EQ online assessment and a strategy that will enhance my EQ. Upon the multiple concepts gained, one important lesson learned is what true social awareness really means. I have always believed my skill in observing people were fairly good and as well as a pretty good accuracy when reading people and knowing the mood of the room.
One of the most beneficial aspects of feedback is the information the teacher acquires. Through effective feedback, teachers can determine the learning preference of individual students, the strengths and weaknesses in a given area, and information to help guide instruction. Students will experience more achievement as teachers use feedback to help direct their instructional practice. II. Forms of Effective Feedback 1.
