...Saturday, May 19th 2012 Hum/111 – Instructor K. Moore Week 9 Assignment: Personal Reflection Paper Critical thinking is when you use logical thinking process to evaluate things such as decisions, readings and much more. Critical thinking is developed as a person ages and the brain is introduced to critical thinking skills in order to effectively form the final tool of critical thinking. It may not be used as much if a person doesn’t employ the skills that they have been taught. How critical thinking differs from the usual thinking is the fact that there is depth. The three most significant things that I learned about critical thinking during this class are that it aides’ creative thinking, helps you better analyze things and it impacts the decisions you make. Creative thinking is aided by critical thinking because it assists in the thinking department and helps get the juices flowing when it comes to creating ideas because you have to evaluate them to see if they are worthy. Analyzing a situation wouldn’t be the same if you didn’t have critical thinking to help. When analyzing an idea or decision, critical thinking helps you answer those what, when, why and how questions that require an answer. Critical thinking impacts the decisions you make because if you don’t think critically you may find yourself in a whirlwind of confusion and frustration. When you are using critical thinking you will either get a positive result or a negative result. If you get a positive result...

I will also reevaluate my skills and give a formal and concise reason behind why I decided to change my level of critical thinking. What is critical thinking? Critical thinking is the intellectually disciplined process of actively and skillfully conceptualizing, applying, analyzing, synthesizing, and/or evaluating information gathered from, or generated by, observation, experience, reflection, reasoning, or communication, as a guide to belief and action.

Week 5 Individual Personal Reflection Paper

...Week 5 Individual Personal Reflection Paper March 11, 2013 HUM114 Critical thinking is when you stop to analyze any problem or situations and come up with ideas on how you can solve them critically; it is also the ability to use reasoning and logic to unfamiliar ideas and situations. Critical thinking is a form of behavior we can enforce in every moment we need to analyze a certain perspective, situation, problems, and issues. The three most significant things that I have learned about critical thinking during this course are how to identify if it is a problem or an issue, the steps to critically analyze a situation, and finally I learned how to listen, read, and view critically. Learning to identify if a situation is a problem or an issue is imperative. The reason is because they have different approaches to each one. If a situation is a problem, people can all agree that is a problem but may have different ways of mindset when it comes to finding the solution. There may be ideas for solutions that not everybody agrees with, but everybody will agree there is a problem. If the situation is an issue, people will not all agree there may be an issue. Everyone will have their own opinion on the situation to where some may think there is an issue, others may think there is no issue and also others may not agree on how to solve the issue. When you are able to identify if it is an issue or a problem, you can start thinking critically on how to come up with ideas and......

...Personal Reflection Paper Critical thinking is the ability to look beyond the first initial thought of something. Thinking is something everyone does every day. Critical thinking is a more advanced way of thinking, using a specific set of skills. Critical thinking is being able to look deeper into the facts to see how they are proven, to see how arguments are formed, and finally, how one reached their conclusion. Critical thinkers question and test their own thought processes which makes them more disciplined in their own research. Critical thinking is much more involved than our normal way of thinking. It is not just asking the six questions of who, what, when, where, why, and how. Critical thinking goes much further into things by observing, remembering, wondering, imagining, inquiring, interpreting, evaluating, and judging. Critical thinking can help with the elimination of negative consequences to ensure for more positive results. Critical thinking is learned and developed through practice. Chapter three of our text was very informative for myself when we discussed the habits that can hinder our thinking. I had not realized that the habits, mine-is-better, face saving, resistance to change, conformity, stereotyping, and self-deception had so much of an impact on my own ability to be a successful critical thinker. Learning about those habits gave me a better understanding of how my own mind works. This class as well as several others have made me realize......

...Personal Reflection on the Self Marshawn Metters PSY400 Monday, October 21st, 2013 Instructor Ami Taharka Personal Reflection The concept of self is a very intriguing subject in which many different psychologists as well as sociologist have spent a great deal of time in an attempt to define what the self means to each individual separately. Each and every individual share different ideas on what they believe about self and how it helps produce their whole being. The concept of self often deals with the past and the future, considering how an individual used to be as well as what an individual would like to be. The study of self often times will shine light upon an individual looking to the world for understanding, hopes, and fears of how to interact, what to expect, as well as what that individual believes the world thinks they should act or be. This paper will allow me to share personal experience that have played a part in my own social development as well as define self concept, self esteem, and self efficacy. The Self The term self-concept is defined as a person’s answer to the question, “Who am I?” (Myers, 2010). The self exposes how an individual may perceive who he or she really is. The concept of self defines the roles and often times the attributes in which an individual see when looking in at oneself. A basic explanation of self derives from social interaction; social interaction guides an individual’s actions and behaviors. My grandmother said to me......

...Fatima Karriem Personal Learning Reflection The Introduction This paper states that learning styles are just as different as the individuals who utilize the various styles of learning. As an adult, you learn differently than you did when you were younger. As an adult learner, the author will find that the process of obtaining the information and resources needed is much different. According to Kolb (1985), individuals develop learning styles that emphasizes some learning abilities over others. Additionally, Kolb’s learning model assumes that individual exhibit a preference for certain learning behaviors that can be grouped into four distinct learning style: Converger, Diverger, Assimilator, and Accomodator. You may fit into just one or find that more than one style describes how you learn. The paper reveals that the author considers herself a Converger/Accommodator, which is helpful knowing your learning style to optimize your performance and aid in what you decide to study. As unique individuals we all learn differently and need help when it comes to learning. We all have a process by which we learn. One person’s end result of his or her learning process may be different from that of their peers. The following paper will be a personal reflection of my learning style. I will assess my strengths and show some opportunities available for me to grow. Even though we may be able to identify the type of learner we are, there are many benefits in learning and using...

Personal Reflection on the Self Paper

...Personal Reflection on the Self Paper 1 Personal Reflection on the Self Paper By Joe Everett April 21, 2014 University of Phoenix Personal Reflection on the Self Paper 2 The study of one’s self is a part of social psychology. A person to person in social psychology is not the same as self, now if you asked someone to identify what is self their response will be different all the time because every person will tell you a different response. However, even with all the different responses it does not make any of the answer wrong, it has to do with the person’s perspective that determines what they feel is self, it is because of this we have to wonder how many self’s are we dealing with. If we asked a person that question, they might answer that more than one exists. With this kind of response it is correct because we have to see the inner self, interpersonal self, body self, and the social self. What is considered us or yourself is self-recognized and self identifies; however, what all of this means is that other peoples are not going to see you the same way. There are a couple different theories that deals with such effect and the illusion of transparency. There is what is called a spotlight effect, and this is when a person believes that everyone is looking at them, they think that everyone’s focusing all their attention on how one’s they look or even behavior like, but in reality not one is really paying......

...Personal Reflection HUM/114 Personal Reflection In this paper I will discuss what critical thinking is and how my personal critical thinking skills have developed and possibly changed. Before starting the Critical and Creative Thinking course, I was unaware of the differences between thinking and critical thinking. The first assignment for the class was the “What Kind of Thinker Are You?” From this, I learned the differences between thinking and critical thinking, the strategies for developing critical thinking, and the different stages of thinking. What is Critical Thinking? Critical thinking is different from just thinking in general.  Thinking is considered daydreaming, and is distorted, or uniformed.  However, critical thinking is more controlled, is improved thinking, and is more of a problem solver. One would be critically thinking when he or she breaks each thought down into analyzing, and assessing each task. A critical thinker will direct their thinking with details and organization. “It is the ability to apply reasoning and logic to new or unfamiliar ideas, opinions, and situations. Thinking critically involves seeing things in an open-minded way and examining an idea or concept from as many angles as possible. This important skill allows one to look past their own views of the world and to better understand the opinions of others” (Wise Geek.org, 2013, para 1). What I have Significantly Learned I have learned many things about critical thinking;......

Personal Reflection Paper Christin Ferebee PSY/400 June 9, 2014 Nancy McGraw Personal Reflection Paper “Your self is your ongoing sense of who and what you are your sense f how and why you react to the environment and how you choose to act in the environment” (Myers, 2010). Only the self is able to define who someone is, what they are, and what their role in life is. How an individual feels about themselves defines who they will react to other individuals. This reaction to others will help each individual shape their sense of self. Our own sense of self helps us to organize our individual thoughts, feelings, and actions (Myers, 2010). We as individuals are able to recall our past, present, and even to think about our future by our sense of self. By using self-concept, self-esteem, and self-efficacy, we are able to apply the sense of self to current life. The goal with this paper is to apply my concept of self to my current life, and the social world. Describe the Concept of the Self in the Social world Each individual’s personality will influence their self-concept, but social experiences have even greater influence in the social world. Self-concept is becoming a major social-psychological focus since it helps an individual to organize their thinking as well as being a guide to their social behavior (Myers, 2010). Each individual has a different social role and social identity that defines our sense of self in the social world. A social role refers to titles such as......

...Personal Reflection Paper BSHS 345 August 26, 2014 Personal Reflection Paper Invidious comparison is the act of comparing one person to others according to their class, race, sex, or religion. This act can have a negative effect on people who are aware of it. Growing up in California, where the predominant Hispanic races were of Mexican and Central American origin, I was constantly compared to those Hispanic backgrounds. This was frustrating because I am Colombian and the Colombian Culture is very different from the Central American culture. My mind could not understand why people would compare me to them if I am South American. The traditions, food, music, slang, and even accents were different. American non-Hispanic people would call me, among many other things, a “dirty Mexican” or “wet back.” This was extremely frustrating because neither one of my parents hopped the border nor were they dirty. My young mind did not know how that these people were just ignorant so my frustration turned into anger and total repulsion of races of those other backgrounds and countries. A sense of insecurity and even self-hate would overcome me. I did not want to be Hispanic, I wanted to be white, and I wanted to be accepted. My way of seeing things changed in 2006 when the Immigration Equality Movements became popular. Latino activists would speak at events and in a sense give the people a sense of empowerment and hope. Attending these events made me feel proud of my Hispanic......

...change in their personal life, relationships, and the way they view the world and others. When a person listens to the details of the client’s traumatic experience, they become witnesses to the traumatic realities, they picture and they play out the events in their mind, which leads to a transformation within the psychological functioning of counselors (Kress, 2004). Even those that work in other careers, like police officers, emergency medical workers, and firefighters go through vicarious traumas. I as a human being has not gone through a vicarious trauma, and I don’t know of many people that have gone through it. Even though I have not gone through it or I don’t know any person, it doesn’t mean that I will never go through it and more when I start working with human services because I will listen to many stories, and events that will hurt me or affect me or would make me think. I am a very loving and heartwarming person and when it comes to stories or trauma or event in people’s lives that have hurt them or make them suffer or have made them feel depress, it gets to me sometimes, and I start feeling sad or angry because it gets to me. Do to me being like that I will have to learn to avoid vicarious traumatization in my career. There are strategies that we can do to prevent vicarious traumatization, which consist of getting professional help, by going to a counselor or therapist that can help you with your problems.

While identifying theses to aspects, I am also going to address how to stop invidious comparison. As well as identifying strategies that I use to avoid vicarious traumatization in my own personal life. I will also go in to depth to show how to avoid vicarious traumatization as a human service worker. Lastly, I am going to address the strategies that can be considered or developed to avoid vicarious traumatization. What is invidious comparison? Invidious comparison is the comparing yourself to others. It can be through race, sexual orientation, and religion. Invidious comparison can make a person feel that their self-worth is not wanted and even take its toll on the person doing the comparison themselves. It can send you into a depressive state where you develop levels of stress. To stop invidious comparison, we must first get an understanding on others and accept the different views that other may possess. Everyone is different in their own way. There will also be an individual that may excel in different things that you may have thought you were good in. Some may be incapable of abilities that one may have. By understanding these aspects we must acknowledge the strengths that we have and do not have without dwelling on the weaknesses of others. Everywhere we go there are comparisons, it is......

...Personal Reflection Paper BSHS/345 November 10, 2014 Personal Reflection Paper Invidious comparison and vicarious traumatization are two very real concepts in life. However, when working in the human service field, both concepts must be controlled to avoid negative outcomes. This paper will describe two concepts and how each has played a part in my life. The first concept of discussion is invidious comparison. The second topic of discussion will focus on vicarious traumatization. Aside from how both concepts have affected me personally, I will examine strategies that can help me avoid vicarious traumatization as a human service worker. The first concept of discussion is invidious comparison. According to Merriam-Webster (2014), invidious comparison is defined as “tending to cause discontent, animosity or envy”. In other words, invidious comparison is when a person compares themselves to others by class, religion, sex, and race. While this concept occurs to everyone, and seems to be a normal part of human nature, negative ramifications such as poor self-esteem, depression, and stress may result if not directed in the correct manner. The concept of invidious comparison is one I can relate to well. For many years, I used to compare myself to those who had more money that I did. While I am ashamed to admit how shallow I was, this comparison brought me into a state of depression. It was during my depressed mode that I realized that I needed to take control......

...Invidious comparison and vicarious traumatization are two things that most people will experience in their lifetime. I know for I personally have experienced both during my 28 years of life. Invidious comparison and vicarious traumatization can both be damaging to yourself and other people involved. That is why I'd like to take the time to explain a few important topics on invidious comparison and vicarious traumatization, such as; how to stop invidious comparison, identify strategies that I currently use to avoid vicarious traumatization in my personal life, how those strategies will help me avoid vicarious traumatization as a human service worker and what strategies I could develop to avoid it as well. I myself have compared myself to others at such a level that it did damage to my own self-esteem. I had a baby at a young age, I gained a lot of weight and my self-esteem instantly dropped. Always comparing myself to other moms who had babies. I would be so hard on myself about why I didn't look like them and why it was taking me so long to drop the baby weight. It even got to the point where I stopped eating because I thought that was the answer to losing weight and looking like these other moms that had babies just like I did. I was so busy focusing on my weakness and faults that I didn't stop to embrace my strengths and to embrace the difference of those other moms. Instead of allowing those other moms to inspire me, it brought me down because of envy and jealousy. ...

Will focus on how to avoid vicarious traumatization in your personal/ work life and ways to strategize to avoid this. These will also be strategies that I use as a Human Service professional to avoid traumatiztion as well. How to Stop Invidious Comparison We have to realize that we are all different and no two people are the same in any way, but as humans we have a natural tendency to constantly compare ourselves to others that we may see on a daily basis or those that we see on television. It is normal to do this to merely evaluate the similarities and differences between yourself and others. In today’s society we have turned in to comparison junkies and this is something that starts at birth with comparing babies on who’s the cutest and then it just carries over throughout the years into adulthood. * We have to learn that comparing ourselves with others is a bad habit and is a sign of low self esteem. Today’s society does project flawlessness within everyone nowadays and that is an untruth, because no one is perfect. *Understanding that everybody is different because that’s just how we are and how we were meant to be. Everyone is born different even with twins, they may look alike, but they have different mindsets, different experiences,......
