To complete this activity,
- Complete the The IPIP-NEO (International Personality Item Pool Representation of the NEO PI-R) (Links to an external site.) (either the short or long version).
- Interpret your results.
- Illustrate each dimension of your personality with specific details and examples.
- What characteristics or behaviors have you noticed about yourself that support or dispute these?
- Relate elements of your own thoughts, feelings, and actions that may be particularly impacted by external situational factors (social and cultural contexts that you have experienced), rather than internal dispositional factors (your personality traits). (Example: Does being in a crowded place evoke emotions or an action on your part?)
- Discuss the impact of society, culture, gender, or other dimensions of variation, either on the person or the situation. (Example: Do you have behaviors or feelings that align with your culture, gender, or community?)
To fully demonstrate content knowledge and critical thinking, the Personality and Social Psychology discussion must
- Appraise course concepts explicitly, applying them to your personal experiences/observations, and cite the required readings as appropriate.
- Be thorough and specific, structuring your work intentionally (with an introductory and concluding sentence or two), providing clear context, and concisely and precisely explaining relevant course concepts.
- Use personal examples to illustrate as appropriate, but do be sure to provide an objective analysis too, referencing required materials and using additional credible sources as needed to support your insight. For more, see Summary vs. Analysis (Links to an external site.).
- Use your own Academic Voice (Links to an external site.) and apply in-text citations appropriately throughout your post. For more, review APA: Citing Within Your Paper (Links to an external site.).
- Your original post should be a minimum of 300 words.
