Schmuldt, Laura 13 September 2006 (has links)
Altruism is loosely defined as a desire to help others as well as acts and behaviors towards that end, particularly when no expectation of personal gain or reward exists (Batson, Fultz, Schoenrade & Paduano, 1987). It seems likely that individuals who choose to pursue acareer in counseling might be doing so out of some altruistic interest; in other words a desire to come to the aid of others in distress. It has been noted as well that some individuals may enter the counseling profession based more on self-interest; for example, as "wounded healers" hoping to work on personal issues (Wheeler, 2002). Some researchers (Shapiro &Gabbard, 1996) hypothesize that overstated altruism may lead to burn-out and fatigue among some counselors whereas those who have limited altruism may have difficulties empathizing with clients. Despite the apparent relevance of altruism to counseling as a profession, very few studies have investigated the level of altruism among those in the field. The primary purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between altruism and personality variables in beginning counseling students. It is currently unclear to what extent altruism is a state (situational) vs. a trait (inherent). Grasping a greater sense of what constitutes altruistic behavior among beginning counseling students may benefit researchers in understanding the potential difficulties Shapiro & Gabbard (1996) suggest; i.e., burn-out, limited empathy or even self-gratification. The population in this study was 87 students entering a Master's degree in Counselor Education at a large, public institution in the Southeastern Unites States. The subjects completed the following assessments at orientation to their program: The Robinson-Heintzelman Inventory (an instrument designed to study altruism vs. self-interest in counselor education students), the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and the Fundamental Interpersonal Relations Orientation-Behavior (FIRO-B). It was hypothesized that higher scores on altruism would correlate with the intuitive and feeling dimensions of the MBTI and low scores on wanted inclusion, wanted affection and expressed control on the FIRO-B. The hypotheses were not supported in this study; the only finding of statistical significance was the correlation between the thinking dimension of the MBTI and the total score on the RHI. Suggestions for future research are discussed. / Ph.D. / Department of Child, Family and Community Sciences / Education / Counselor Education

Podniková kultura ve vybraných podnicích / Company culture in selected businesses

HLADÍLKOVÁ, Andrea January 2014 (has links)
The aim of my work was to evaluate company culture in particular companies and suggest any possible changes that would lead to an improvement. The main aim was both the analyses of personal types of particular managers with their perception of company culture and the perception of company culture by ordinary workers of monitored companies. The final evaluation should result in suggestions of changes that would achieve the desired improvement. For the research the questionnaire method was used together with the directed interview method. Always two managers and two workers of the same company attended the interview. The directed interviews were performed with managers. During particular interviews, the managers were asked selected questions with the possibility of adding their own remarks. Questions concerned the managers personally and the company where they work. Further, all managers filled in a questionnaire that measured their perception of company culture. A questionnaire was also given to other employees of the company in addition a directed interview was also performed with them about the company culture. After the evaluation of results, managers were given the opportunity to express their opinion which was also implemented into this research.

En vanlig risk för organisationer är att användare inte har tillräcklig kunskap omdatasäkerhet vilket kan medföra att känslig information når obehöriga via internet.Administratörer i organisationer har fått ökade problem på grund av att användarna ärden svagaste länken i systemet. En vanlig orsak till detta är att användare i allt störreutsträckning utsätts för nätfiske-attacker. Arbetets syfte är att är att undersöka möjligheten att utforma ett test som undersökerkopplingar mellan personlighetstyper enligt Myers-Briggs Type Indicators ochanvändares förmåga att identifiera nätfiske-attacker. Testet som tagits fram består avtre delar. Första delen är ett MBTI-test, andra delen syftar till att se användarnaskunskap om nätfiske-attacker och tredje delen visar användarnas attityd till nätfiskeoche-postsäkerhet. Resultatet visar att det existerar skillnader mellan personlighetstyper vilket är enindikation på att metoden och testet kan användas för att se en koppling mellanpersonlighetstyper och förmåga att identifiera nätfiske-attacker. Skillnaderna kundeses i användarnas kunskap och attityd till nätfiske.

The Relationship Between Personality Type and Software Usability Using the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI®) and the Software Usability Measurement Inventory (SUMI)

Lindsey, William H. 01 January 2011 (has links)
This study attempted to determine if there is a relationship between user's psychological personality types, measured by the Myers Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) and distinct measures of usability measured by the Software Usability Measurement Inventory (SUMI). The study was expected to provide an answer to the following basic research question: When interacting with a typical user interface, do different users perceive usability differently? Specific hypotheses were formulated to answer this research question. Hypotheses were tested to determine if there was any statistically significant relationship between specific MBTI® personality types and individual measure of usability as measured by the SUMI. Each hypothesis was tested using ANOVA analysis in two ways. The 16 MBTI® types were condensed together using two letters of the full MBTI® type. First, the data was grouped by MBTI® function pair: STs, SFs, NFs and NTs, then by Keirsey temperament: SJs, SPs, NFs and NTs. By grouping data, the effects of small numbers of certain individual types from the sample should be minimized. When grouping by MBTI® function pair statistical analysis indicated all six hypotheses were supported, indicating no significant relationship between personality type as measured by the MBTI®, and usability as measured by the SUMI in this sample. When grouping by Keirsey temperament, statistical analysis indicated five hypotheses were supported, indicating no significant relationship between personality type as measured by the MBTI®, and usability as measured by the SUMI in this sample. Data analysis showed a significant relation between MBTI® personality type and the SUMI sub-scale of Helpfulness in this sample. Since only a limited relationship was found between MBTI® types and SUMI usability scales, developers may need to rethink the process of including individual differences as a component of interface design, at least based on personality. However, this study used only one measure of personality- the MBTI®. Different personality measures could offer different results. Finally, this research provided another analysis of how the typical computer user envisions usability and provides a basic summary of usability scales by personality MBTI® types.

Spelartypers påverkan på beslutsfattande av valbara belöningar : Baserat på BrainHex-modellen / Player types influence on decision making of eligible reward : Based on the BrainHex model

Clifford, William January 2019 (has links)
Denna undersökning ställer spelarketypsmodellen BrainHex under samma kritik som dess grundmodell MBTI (Myers-Briggs type indicator 1962). Kritiken är främst att människan är för komplex för att kategoriseras i dikotomiska grupper samt att kategorin de tilldelas anses vara absolut och inte en preferens. Baserat på ovan togs det fram en frågeställning som lyder: ”Vad för påverkan gör en tilldelad BrainHex-typ med en spelares beslutsfattande av valbara belöningar?”. Belöningar valdes som representativt medium för att spegla arketypspreferenser. Totalt 15 spelvana deltagare samlades. Deltagarna ställs inför tre val under spelomgången. Varje val är antingen av arketypen Conqueror eller Seeker. 10 av 15 deltagare fick dessa två arketyper tilldelade för att se om de spelar utefter en självuppfyllande profetia eller bryter sig loss. Resterande användes som kontrollgrupp och fick sina faktiska arketyper. Efter testet genomförts visar sig uppdragsvalen vara något viktade. Däremot så resulterar allt i en indikation till tendens att deltagare följer sina tilldelade arketyper

Tester - ett bra verktyg vid långtidssjukskrivnas återgång till arbete?

Lindroos, Elisabeth January 2008 (has links)
Jag har haft möjlighet att följa en HR- konsults (Human Resources) arbete med grupp långtidssjukskrivna under en bedömning av arbetsförmåga på ett stort företag i västra Skåne. Under dessa arbetstillfällen har gruppdeltagarna fått göra ett antal tester. Testerna har varit intresse och yrkestester samt personlighetstest. Då jag tidigare själv haft möjlighet att göra dessa tester har jag blivit nyfiken på andras upplevelser av att göra tester. Mitt syfte med detta examensarbete är att ta reda på en grupp långtidssjukskrivnas attityder till test och vilken betydelse dessa kan ha för individens återgång till arbete eller studier. Jag vill ta reda på om testresultaten stämmer överens med den testades egen bild av sig själv, gällande egenskaper, intressen och personlighet. Jag vill också ta reda på om testernas resultat stämmer överens med deltagarnas egen bild av tänkbar studie alternativt yrkesframtid, samt om deltagarna själva anser att de har haft någon hjälp av testerna. Resultatet på detta arbete har arbetats fram genom kvalitativa metoder så som intervjuer med deltagarna. Huvudresultatet på min studie har visat att deltagarnas egna bilder av sig själva stämmer överens med testresultaten – om deltagarna hade varit friska. Eftersom deltagarna nu inte är friska så ser de sina testresultat som relativt oanvändbara. Det har ändå visat sig att deltagarna har haft positiva upplevelser av att göra dessa tester då det upplevts stärkt deras självbild.

The joint effects of group composition and instruction in consensus-seeking on decision quality

Waugh, C. Keith 06 June 2008 (has links)
The purpose of this study was to investigate whether group performance could be significantly improved by forming groups with members heterogeneous in information-processing preferences, as measured by the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, and by providing those groups with instructions’ to facilitate consensus on the group’s solution to a complex, multistage decision task. Comparisons of four performance measures among undergraduate student groups (N = 38) differing in composition (homogeneous vs. heterogeneous) and mode of consensual instruction (instructed vs. not instructed) were conducted through a series of statistical procedures. The performance measures, obtained from individual and group solutions to NASA’s "Lost on the Moon" task, were: a) group scores, b) utilization of average member resources, c) utilization of the groups’ best member’s resources, and da) the proportion of groups achieving an assembly effect. The results of the analyses supported only those hypotheses predicting that groups instructed in consensus would demonstrate better performance on each of the measures. The hypotheses predicting composition main effects for the performance measures were not supported, nor were hypotheses predicting significant interaction effects. Implications of the findings and suggestions for further research are offered. / Ph. D.
