You now understand that there are many different areas of impact within the realms of parenting styles. Explore your own experience and reaction to the parenting disciplines and styles of your own parents. This awareness will help you in your interactions with children.

Reflect on the family dynamics that were prevalent in your own home (such as your temperament, gender, placement in the sibling group, parent’s life stage, marital quality of parents, traditions, and expectations). Based on this reflection, respond to the following: Looking back at your own experiences and influences, which dynamic would you say had the biggest impact on your own development during childhood and adolescence and the role that you played in your own family? Give reasons for your answer. Think about your role in the context of your family. How is it explained by the various family dynamics such as your temperament, gender, placement in the sibling group, parent’s life stage, marital quality of parents, traditions, expectations, and so on? Using the module readings, Argosy University online library resources, and the Internet, research your findings further. Incorporate information from at least two of these academic sources to support your statements and ideas in your response to the following: How does your biggest impact align with the research? Who are the major proponents (theorists past or current) of your chosen dynamic and how did they reach these conclusions? Ask two adults what or who had the most impact on them. Compare this data with your experience and your research about prominent dynamics.

Write a 2–3-page paper in Word format. Be sure to include separate title and reference pages. Apply APA standards to citation of sources, including use of in-text citations and full references. Academic sources could include your textbook, required readings for this module, or academic journal articles found in the Argosy University online library.

According to Alfred Adler, the relationship between personality and inferiority stemmed from a desire to overcome the feelings of inferiority in childhood.  Adler theorized that every person feels inferior to another person throughout their life (Lecci & Magnavita, 2013).  He believed that children feel inferior to the capable adults in their lives and that feeling of inferiority drives them to be recognized and seen as successful, powerful, etc. as they grow into adulthood.  Adler also believed that once people perceive themselves as adults, they begin to compare themselves to their peers as a check of their potential inferiority.

As for the relationship between personality and love, Fromm discusses love as an expression of personality.  Love is how people connect with their world and those in it (Fromm, 1957).  Different people with different types of personalities desire and exhibit different forms of love.  For those who are less secure with their connection to the world and those around them, they may seek greater amounts of love and praise to compensate for their lack of esteem.  Whereas someone more connected and confident is felt to give and receive love in a healthier fashion. 

One thing that really ties these theories of love and inferiority is the personal connection to other individuals—how one person perceives their connection to the people around them.  It is natural for people to compare themselves to those around them.  Inferiority and love influence the relationships we build, healthy or unhealthy, to those around us and in turn, affect how we engage in our surroundings.  Those who feel inferior well into adulthood and never come to terms with their status may find themselves beaten down by circumstances they could not overcome, and in turn believe they are undeserving and/or incapable of love—platonic, romantic, or otherwise.  Or in the reverse, someone who struggles in building or maintaining loving relationships may believe they are undeserving or less because they are not meeting the status quo they see in their peers.

Week 4 – Discussion 2 – Personification
Dr. Shoemaker
August 30, 2018
The differences between the two classes of personifications are (as cited by Sullivan), states personifications are mental images that allow us to better understand ourselves and the world we live in.”(Lecci & Magnvita, 2013, sec. 3.3) Sullivan personifications are identified as the bad-me, the good me and the not me. The bad me are the negative and hidden aspect of an individual. The good me are the positive aspect that is seen openly, and the, not me are the things we distant ourselves from, that will bring a negative connection.
The similarities between Sullivan’s personifying process and Freud’s concept of transference are the interpersonal relations forms, and the construct of transference appears to be involved in all our relationships. “Sullivan believed that we adopted new ego identities to meet the demands of different social situations” (Lecci & Magnavita, 2013, sec. 3.3). It is so true, whenever I’m with my church family I speak with them differently than when I’m around my friends. According to Lecci & Magnavita, (2013), ” the behavioral perspective uses the term generalization to indicate when learning in one context is generalized to another similar context”(sec. 3.3) In other words, transferring the emotional connection from one object to another. Additionally, it is believed that the role of interpersonal factors of ego development is to interpret and adapt to social demands, expectations, and roles. (Lecci & Magnavita, 2013, sec. 3.3)
Personification changes our image of people because we illustrate an object in a person’s mind and when the association is made to the ,t might not represent what you had in mind. Therefore the expected represention is not what the person would be present. The primacy of the social self in ego development is defined regarding the presence of others. Therefore, an individual establishes a new identity for that set of relationship as it arises. There isn’t a single or fixed personality. (Lecci & Magnavita, 2013, sec. 3.3)

Post the following to the discussion board          State the area of interest. What did you learn? Which resources were most helpful? Were there any resources that you found unhelpful?

Assignment 1 – I Get Better Grades With a Little Help From My Friends You have two friends who have been struggling with exams in their classes. They can’t figure out what they are doing wrong, so they approach you for advice. In talking with your frien



You have two friends who have been struggling with exams in their classes. They can’t figure out what they are doing wrong, so they approach you for advice. In talking with your friends, you learn: Both of them are studying in one big cram session the evening before the exam.  They’re just not motivated to put in more time.
They primarily study by just reread­ing notes and the chapters. One of your friends is only 17 and she checks her phone about every 2 minutes for text messages or social media updates. Your other friend is returning to college after some time away and is 65 years old.  She finds it easy to recognize some information when asked a fill-in-the-blank question, but it is much harder if she has to define a vocabulary word or answer an essay.  

The good news is that you are enrolled in a psychology class that can help both your friends improve their study habits and results on the exam.  

As you prepare to help your friends, here are some specific topics to address.  From Chapter 1, what part of the brain is responsible for remembering the important information that will be on the exam?  Describe that part of the brain and its purpose.  As covered in Chapter 4, psychologists have determined that age can effect cognitive development and memory. For your friend who is 17, how could you use what you have learned about moral development to explain why she may be checking her phone every 2 minutes for text messages and social media updates.   How could she expand her attention?  For your friend is age 65, and having a hard time with vocabulary, explain what may be happening that prevents her from doing well on this type of activity.  How could she improve?  In chapter 6, we learn about operant conditioning.  Describe operant conditioning in your own words.  Thinking of operant conditioning, how could you help your friend use rewards as motivation to study more often?   Using what we have learned in chapter 7, explain why your memory may not retain all the information learned in the cram session the night before the big exam.  How would cramming effect encoding?  How would cramming effect retrieval?  What is one technique that each friend could use to help improve memory and prepare for the exam?  It’s the night before the big exam.  You check on your friends and your younger friend is not doing well.  It turns out that things have turned out even worse.  Her boyfriend broke up with her, stole money from her bank account, and her grandmother passed away the week before.  You notice on her Facebook page that she posed, “Where can I find some rope?!?”  In chapter 5, you learn about suicide and what to do.  Based on that, what steps can you take to help your friend?  Be sure to include any resources that you could call to get advice.
