Locate and take a free online assessment that uses the Big Five personality factors.

Write a 1,050- to 1,400-word paper describing your personality traits based on your findings from the Big Five assessment tool. Include the following in your paper: Summarize your results. Propose solutions for working with other personality types using the information from the Big Five assessment and the underlying principles of trait theories. Describe how your results from the assessment compare to the 16 personality factors. Explain how your results are relative to genetics.

Include an introduction and conclusion, and cite at least two sources other than your textbook.

 You will be completing a self-management project in Week 5, and your topic needs to be approved by your instructor to ensure it is behavioral, measurable, and objectively defined. Doing so ensures that you select an appropriate topic but also gets you thinking about how to operationally define behavior.

Choose a target behavior for your Week 5 Self-Management Project.

Write a 175-word summary on the target behavior in observable and measurable terms. Include the methods that will be used to observe and acquire baseline data.


  Research the 1976 Trial of Patricia Hearst


You are an employee of the Jury Consultation Corporation. Imagine it is 1976, and Patricia Hearst has just been charged with armed robbery. You have been hired by the defense to assist in developing a strategy to help to acquit her.


Find answers to the following questions:

 Research the 1976 trial of Patricia Hearst and briefly summarize the case against her. What characteristics does Patricia Hearst possess that could possibly sway a jury in her favor? As a result, what characteristics should her defense attorney look for when selecting a jury? What characteristics does Patricia Hearst possess that could sway a jury against her? As a result, what characteristics should the prosecuting attorney look for when selecting a jury? What type of psychological expert should the defense hire? In other words, what area of psychology should the expert specialize in? Be specific and support your answer.


Prepare a PowerPoint presentation, to the client’s attorney explaining your answers to the above questions. Make sure that your report is something that an attorney could use to assist them in developing and trying a case.


Use headings, the bold style, and bulleted lists to effectively communicate your findings. You should include detailed speaker notes to assist in your presentation. Please make sure to have at least 10 slides for review. All citations in the report should be in APA 6th edition format.



Criminal Case


Choose one of the roles a forensic psychologist may take in the legal field. Research a specific job that falls in this role (i.e. correctional psychologist, or police psychologist), if you can, find a job description. Note what qualifications are necessary.


Write a 3-4 page article for the magazine Psychology Today highlighting this particular job:

 Briefly describe the roles that people in this job may take on. Explain what the career requires you know about the legal system. Discuss any educational requirements of the job. Describe what an undergraduate psychology student may have to do to become eligible for this job.


Submit your article in Microsoft Word format. All citations in the article should be in American Psychological Association (APA) 6th edition format. Please make sure to also include a reference page in APA format, but there is no need for a title page in this assignment.


 The project is not to be a biography of a theorist. Nor is it simply an overview of some theory. Student papers are to demonstrate a thorough understanding of historical and philosophical roots of a specific theory, relevant modern extensions, and recent empirical support. For example, a student could explore the perspective of evolutionary psychology and elaborate on its philosophical foundations and provide criticism of this approach. Students will explore a perspective in psychology that they are not familiar with or perhaps disagree with. This is an essential critical thinking skill.

1. In what ways did the ideas of the Manichees put Augustine on the path toward truth? How did he eventually come to see their errors?

2. How does Augustine explain the presence of evil in the world? How can it be so prevalent in our experience, if it does not exist independently (as a substance)?

3. What is the source of goodness, according to Augustine (see especially VII)?

4. Augustine describes a time when he understood what is the ultimate good, and yet could not accept God’s grace (see especially VII. 18­19). What does this indicate about the relationship between mind and heart, between intellect and will?

5. Describe some of the ways in which Augustine’s conversion story (VIII. 12) is similar to other famous conversion stories (such as Paul’s, in Acts 9), and some ways in which it is different. 

6. What is time, according to Augustine? Does it exist objectively in the world? (See XI. 14­20)

7. How would Anselm reply to someone who said, “I know perfectly well what you mean when you talk about God, and I also know that there isn’t any such being.”

8. Why does Aquinas think that Anselm’s ontological argument is not available to us? 9. What is the relationship between reason and revelation, according to Aquinas? Is one subordinate to the other?

10. How are essence and existence related in created beings, according to Aquinas? What does this imply about the question of whether the world exists by necessity?

11. Summarize the arguments for God’s existence that Aquinas puts forward: the argument from change, from efficient cause, from possibility and necessity, from the goodness of things, and from design in the world. (The test won’t ask you to summarize all five but might ask for, say, two of them.)

12. How does doubt lead Descartes to certainty? What is it about which he cannot be deceived? 13. Why is Descartes called a foundationalist?

14. How does the conviction that God is not a deceiver help Descartes to establish the reality of an external, material world?

15. How does Descartes argue from the idea of God to the actual existence of God, in Meditation III?

16. How does the distinction between understanding and will explain the possibility of error, for Descartes? How can we avoid error?

17. What is essential to us as persons, according to Descartes? Are we physical bodies? 18. Under what categories does an aesthete (in Kierkegaard’s classification) organize his or her life? How does this differ in the ethical mode?

19. Judge William, writing to A, speaks of his “either/or”. What is that? And how does it mark the difference between A’s form of life and the judge’s?

20. What is the judge’s view of the relation between romantic love and marriage?

21. What is despair? What is the condition of a self when despair is completely eradicated?

22. What is characteristic of a system? What would an existential system be? And how does Kierkegaard attack this notion?

23. “Never at any moment in my life have I ‘sought for God,’” writes Simone Weil (p. 22). Why does she say this? What does it imply about the way in which we come to know God and ourselves?

24. Why is Weil so wary of the church and its “dogma,” its theological teachings? 25. In the essay on “school studies”) Weil writes that “the intelligence can only be led by desire.”

26. How is “every school exercise . . . like a sacrament”? (p. 63)

27. In The Little Logic Book, ch. 13, the authors argue that some purposes are appropriate and others are not in making an argument. Explain what they mean; give examples.

28. “Behind the cases where reasoning with others goes off track, there sometimes lies a moral failure that runs deeper than any logical mistake,” the authors write (p. 192). Explain what this failure is.

29. What is the virtue, in arguing, that represents the mean between excess in either direction? What are the excesses on each side? Explain briefly. The virtue is compromise

The remaining questions are review questions covering several writers. You will be asked to

answer one ortwo of these on the exam. What is important in answering these questions is not to come up with the correct answer – in some cases there really isn’t one – but to explore the

way writers’ ideas relate to each other and to our concerns as we study them.

30. How would Plato, Aristotle and Augustine answer the question that Socrates first posed: what is the best life for a person to live? How do we know that it is the best?

31. In what ways does Kierkegaard’s view of human life, and the choices we make, resemble Augustine’s? In what ways does it differ?

32. Descartes believes we must never act unless we are certain of the principle we are acting on. Kierkegaard, however, believes uncertainty and anxiety are the inevitable conditions of every human choice. Who is right? Or are both partly right?

would like to answer on the final exam. I will consider adding them as optional essay questions.
