Being a good person means having a good personality. Psychology studies personality based on theories of individual differences. One emphasis in this area is to construct a coherent picture of a person and his or her major psychological processes. Another emphasis views personality as the study of individual differences, in other words, how people differ from each other. A third area of emphasis examines human nature and how all people are similar to one other. These three viewpoints merge together in the study of personality. Basically it’s having a good personality is what makes you a good person. Almost every individual struggles to achieve the status of a good person, a good person being a person who doesn’t see the negative in others, a good person being who has good morals and who has a sensitive approach to other’s feelings. Being a good person means to be that exact person everyone wants to talk and wants to be around. Having the qualities of a good person is what I want to be like when I grow. That’s one of many quality I want to have. As I grow up into a separate responsible individual, I want to be represented as a confident, responsible, trustworthy individual. Confidence is the key to make people more appealing in public. Confidence is what makes you a strong individual, a strong individual who is ready to face the world. That’s the type of a person who is attractive in the community and being confident leads the person to become a leader in his society. That’s what I want to achieve as I mature the title of being confident as well as the title of being responsible, as the major signs of maturity is being responsible. With every aspect of growing up any individual should be subjected to be responsible.

Being There

...Being There Being there is about a man named Chance, who is isolated from the outside of the old man's estate, getting his knowledge from watching television and taking care of the garden. He is around 40 years old, stupid and illiterate. He doesn't have any social skills, so he just talks about the garden. When the old man dies the lawyers who handle the estate can't find any evidence that chance has lived there, he is thrown out of the house. When he is on the street he is run over by a limo, and hurt his leg. The woman in the limo, named Elisabeth Eve Rand, apologized and asked him to come home to her, she had a doctor staying at her house, because her husband was very ill. Chance accepts, and goes with her. EE's husband, Benjamin, is a wealthy businessman, and a friend of The President. EE and Benjamin are fooled to think that Chance's name is Chauncey Gardiner and he is a wealthy businessman because of his look when he is in the old man's suit. Chance and Mr. Rand then become friends, and when Mr. Rand couldn't go to a meeting, because of his illness, The President was coming to visit him and Rand wanted Chance to meet him. When chance is asked about something financial he answers by talking about a garden, and everyone thinks he is metaphorically speaking, when actually he's just answering with the few things he has learned in his life. So it goes with Chauncey talking nonsense to a lot of people including The President of the United States, a television......

Being a Homeless Person and the Broader Issue of Poverty in Society

...American Intercontinental University Unit 1 Individual Project SSCI210-1302A-03: Sociology May 5, 2013 Abstract This paper will attempt to explore the sociological imagination of how being unemployed can and foes often have an impact on more that just the person in question. Several groups are affected as well as the individual person. Introduction Sociology is the study of human behavior using conceptual tool and scientific methodology to discover the impact of society on individuals and the causes and consequences of social change. (Editorial B 2012). When we take a look at how the subject of unemployment affects us as individuals we tend to take it personal, as we should. However if this effect us within a group and we are participates in that group then the impact may not be as damaging. Unemployment counts 7.5 % according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics in April of 2013 Unemployment Being unemployed and the impact of unemployment as a broad issue, this is a subject that is always up for discussion. No one really likes to take accountability for this matter, we tend to point fingers and push blame on other. Unemployment has to be look at on an individual basis, and then it expands to community, city, state and then national. Where does it start? People need to be able to translate their personal problems into the societal issues of the public at large according to C Wright Mills (Editorial B 2012). When people are......

What Does It Take to Be a Good Person?

...embraces in order to be a good person. The first is integrity. It encompasses all of the traits that make a truly “good” person, such as honesty and being morally upright. An individual with integrity will keep their word, they won’t go behind your back, and they follow a code of ethics that make them predictable, but safe. No unpleasant surprises come from someone with a high sense of integrity and they adhere to principles of common decency. Courage is the next character trait a good person should have. Someone who can’t and won’t stand up for their own beliefs will definitely no stand up for you or anyone else. A sense of humor is a great character trait for a good person. Life is full of ups and downs and everything is easier if one keeps a sense of humor, or at least surrounds oneself with those who have one. Intelligence, education, and common sense are important builders of character. I have met plenty of people with high IQ’s and no common sense. My personal belief is that common sense, social intelligence, and “street smarts” are pretty much all in the same. Being able to solve the most difficult math problem won’t make you a good partner or friend, if they cannot hold a conversation, relate to others, and have zero social skills. Relating to others is an ability that requires the use of common sense, which dictates what to do or not to do in everyday situations. Kindness is another character trait, like integrity, that a good person should have. A person who......

...S0457566 Modern America and the Diminishing Individual In his essay “Modern America and the Diminishing Individual”, Peter Cooper talks about how today there is an absence of genuine compassion for one another. Copper opens his essay by stating “The impudence, indifference, self-centeredness, evidenced by some Americans are symptomatic of contemporary national malaise” (70). Which basically means that our attitude for “self” is like a sickness in our society today. He goes on to say “Individual significance in society commonly diminishes in direct proportion to the number of people” (70). He expresses that the reason for this being is that “Human behavior deteriorates when many people are crowded closely together, contending elbow to elbow for the same space without respite” (72). Where in which, Cooper then points the blame for our selfishness and carelessness on the Vietnam War by stating, “Vietnam War and its aftermath made a fundamental, enduring contribution to what we have termed modern America callousness” (72). Cooper continues his arguments by saying that “The quest for wealth and aggrandizement encompassing all,…for many as the meaning of life, or a substitute for meaning” (72) He says that this idea is natural to us and that we believe that “Those who possess wealth, power, and their trappings constitute the elite, and thus demonstrate superiority in the struggle for existence.” (72) Throughout his essay Peter Cooper thoroughly demonstrates why we as humans are...

...differences disappear if men and women were complete equals in the workforce? I believe if personality differences were to disappear in the workplace, complete gender equality must be branded on the individual first. But, complete gender equality is shunned away from society because of these four theories: Strength theory, Compatibility with Childcare theory, Economy of Effort and Expendability theory. These theories are the division lines for labor and are the deciding factors for gender equality. The three theories I have listed above are also the separation between male and female roles in workplaces. For example, the Strength theory, which states that men are generally stronger than women, can be used against a women in terms of not being capable to move large amounts of equipment, while a man of the same physical characteristics would be looked more upon for his capability to move the equipment and further segregating occupations. Women are more likely to apply themselves to secondary subsistence jobs, such as shopping and preparing food, and with this likelihood of subsistence jobs female personalities are preconceived as fragile because of the gender roles that have been applied on society for hundreds of years and have now been molded into their occupation approach. My opinion is that the workplace shapes our personalities, and with the workplace shaping our personalities I believe that complete gender equality would alter gender personality differences.......

...how they actually appear to others. Many small businesses get snared in this same trap. For an accurate picture of where your business is, conduct external and internal audits to get a clear understanding of the marketplace, the competitive environment, and your organization’s competencies (your real—not perceived—competencies). 2. Identify what’s important. Focus on where you want to take your organization over time. This sets the direction of the enterprise over the long term and clearly defines the mission (markets, customers, products, etc.) and vision (conceptualization of what your organization’s future should or could be). From this analysis, you can determine the priority issues—those issues so significant to the overall well-being of the enterprise that they require the full and immediate attention of the entire management team. The strategic plan should focus on these issues. 3. Define what you must achieve. Define the expected objectives that clearly state what your organization must achieve to address the priority issues. 4. Determine who is accountable. This is how you’re going to get to where you want to go. The strategies, action plans, and budgets are all steps in the process that effectively communicates how you will allocate time, human capital, and money to address the priority issues and achieve the defined objectives. 5. Review. Review. Review. It’s not over. It’s never over. To ensure the plan performs as designed, you must hold regularly scheduled...

Good

...Define what "good" means to you. Being good does not mean only by outer goodness . You have to consider being good straight from the heart i.e purely . Ultimately, you have to decide on your own code of ethics, and what matters is that you follow through with what you believe makes you a good person. At times, this may conflict with what others believe is good, and they might even accuse you of being wrong or evil. Consider their views-either they know something you don't, in which case you may learn something from them and update your morality, or perhaps their experience is limited, meaning that you should take their views with a grain of salt. Ad Be Good Step 2.jpg 2Be good for its own sake. Don't try to be a good person because your parents told you to, because you want recognition or respect, or for any kind of reward except your own satisfaction in doing what you believe is good. Never act superior to anyone else or brag about your "goodness" or "righteousness". Your dedication to a particular creed, ideology, or set of guidelines does not make you better than anyone else. Do what you believe makes you a good person on your own terms, and remember that it's an individual journey-everyone's path is unique. Do good by stealth, and blush to find it fame.[1] Be Good Step 3.jpg 3Be proactive. It's tempting to infer that as long as you avoid doing the things you know are bad (stealing, badmouthing, lying, intentionally saying hurtful things, etc.), then that means......

...How to be a good person? This may seem like a simple question, yet it may be a complicated one, too. Generally, there are two sides to every coin. For example, without evil, there can be no good. In order to answer the question, one must ask which factors facilitate doing good things and which ones facilitate doing evil things? In my opinion, there are many key factors which facilitate good and evil acts: patterns of childhood, societal pressure where one lives in such as: family, school, peers or friends. Family is the most important factor influencing human behavior and attitude awareness because people spend most of their times with their families at home. Second, schools take the next role in influencing and building people’s behavior. Schools enhance the learned behaviors given at home from the family. Thus, in school, teachers become secondary parents. Third, friends or peers influence opinions, attitudes and behaviors. I have read many stories about good people. One story is about Jesse Figuerido, a maintenance mechanic at Edgerton House who wins the James N. Murphy Award. He receives this award because of his kindness to all of the people around him. He is known as a nice and a good person. He does many good things including helping other people and always sacrificing his time unconditionally for others. He is a good example of being a good person, and tries to show this to MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) students. He wins the students’ hearts by...

Being Good

...“Being good person is like being a goal keeper: no matter how many goals you save, some people will remember only the one that they missed” Human being must obtain different goals in life. You must to be chosen in being good, perfect and excellent. Three characteristics that consists various meanings. It is a leveled characteristic from high to the highest. Being good is the ability to show that he must know to do something. It is he has the ability to open himself in every new opportunity. His willingness to learn and grow in his own way. It is indeed that openness is necessity due to the rapid change of technology. For Socrates, being good is enough though you have the ability to get more ideas out of your head into action. An exemption for this is human being is free to ask helps from others. It doesn’t mean that asking for help is a sign of weakness rather it helps to save time and lead to better end result. Good is differing from being perfect and being good done ashamed to commit mistakes. Though, you do so many things right you cannot move forward without looking back. There will always be good in the world if you decided to do right. Committing mistakes is pathway leading you to be perfect. “Being perfect doesn’t mean everything is perfect, it means that you decided to look beyond those imperfections” It is hard to act that you’re perfect. “Nobody is perfect”, that is how this quotation explains everything. Man is born to be real not to be perfect. Yet, no man...

Good Will

...on Kant’s views on good will and moral worth, along with some real life examples, Socrates’s discussion on differences between mere true belief and real knowledge of virtue and several other philosophers’ unique interpretations and related discussions on this topic. Kant makes a clear argument about good will in the very beginning of his book Grounding for the Metaphysics of Morals. He explicitly states that: “There is no possibility of thinking anything at all in the world, or even out of it, which can be regarded as good without qualification, except a good will. (Kant 7)” Kant believes that a good will is always morally good. Therefore, what a good will does is always morally good as well. Also, he obviously takes good will as the only true standard to judge the moral worth of a certain action. He explains that everything that seems to be good by itself actually could only be good if they are driven by a good will; without a good will, these other things might be used to produce negative outcomes. Except for a good will, nothing else would be good simply on its own. For example, loyal soldiers with bravery driven by a good will protect the city and the citizens well, and some of them may even sacrifice their own lives for such honorable aims. But without a good will, bravery can be used by greedy robbers and may lead to terrible outcomes. Also, scientists may use intelligence with a good will to improve our lives in various aspects; without such good will,......

Be Good or Be Good at It

...Tamyra Hamilton Susan LaPlant ENGL 1102 K 2 April 2015 Be Good or Be Good At It In the article “Parents Notification Policies for Underage Drinking Evolve” by Jenna Johnson she discusses the pros and cons of informing a parent about their child’s alcohol-related actions that they condone at universities. Johnson seems to be on the fence throughout the whole article on whether she agrees or disagree with informing parents on every little detail in their child’s life pertaining to consuming or even just being around alcohol. In the article, Johnson quotes the vice president of student affairs at Virginia Tech, Edward Spencer, when he states “[s]tudents are more concerned about their parents being notified than they are of the legal consequences,” which is true because parents are more terrifying than any form of law enforcement (qtd. in Johnson). Regardless of how minor a situation is parents should be notified if their child is in any situation pertaining to alcohol. It is better for parents to know and be upset for a little while with their child than it is for the parents to not know and possibly not even have a child to be upset with because their child could be taken away from them. It is always best to expect the unexpected in any case regardless of the teenager trying to gain independence. The director of student conduct at the University of Maryland, John Zacker, said it best when he stated that “[t]here is no magical line here between May of their senior......

...Personal responsibility includes being responsible for your own actions and well-being. In relation to social roles each person has their own way of doing things while living their own life. The concept is similar for businesses and organizations that work to provide opportunities for others. They have a responsibility in providing products, goods, and services that are fair while serving a purpose. In either scenario, consequences are suffered when failing to do what is right. In many cases, when you neglect to be responsible, others may be affected in ways you may not have anticipated. Responsibility is something most people are taught from an early age. As you get older you take what you learn and use it to your advantage to help you sustain a healthy way of living. This includes taking care of yourself from the inside out while managing emotions and other needs. Sometimes a consequence suffered from a previous event can make it more difficult for an individual to assume personal responsibility on a social scale. Keeping a sound mind and treating others with respect are things you continue to do throughout your life. When you do something wrong a consequence will follow as this is a part of human nature. But, there are actions that can be avoided yet people will do them anyway knowing potential consequences. For instance, youth are taught to stay away from drugs and illegal substances because they can harm the body and even lead to death. Unfortunately, youth are......
