Team Personality Traits
Personalities can vary in groups of people from different areas of the country. University of Phoenix Learning Team A reflects similar personalities in which may not be a common aspect in most team environments. The ladies in team A truthfully assessed the Big Five Personality test to understand strengths and weaknesses within the team. However, each member has displayed a high regard for team goals and participation. According to each team member the results of the test would prove complete accuracy in the Big Five Personality test.

publications. Then, I discuss about personality from two different theories, which are the humanistic approach theory and the Big Five Personality Model theory.
We have to know how personality developed when we discuss about personality. According to the humanistic approach theory from a humanistic psychologist Roger, “development of a person personality is mainly affected by their childhood experience.” Hence, from Roger’s opinion, “persons’ personalities vary with different amount of parents’ love received by each of them.” There is an example that if a person receives love and support from parents only when the person complies to their parents’ prospects in his/her childhood, the person

or OCEAN (Carpenter & Huffman, 2008). This model is the first to achieve a major goal of trait theory. This describes personality characteristics using the fewest number of traits. However, experts argue that the variation seen in personalities cannot be accounted for by only five traits and the big five model fails to offer casual explanations for these traits (Carpenter & Huffman, 2008). Due to the severe mood swings of the bipolar disorder, the five basic traits can be extreme for the bipolar person. Research indicates that mood disorders may be inherited. An example is that when one identical twin has a mood disorder, that a 50% chance that, the other twin will also develop the

Among the big five personality traits, women score higher than men in agreeableness, making them more compassionate and cooperative, and neuroticism, making them more prone to anxiety, anger, and depression.

The feminine classification represents tendencies that are traditionally associated with women such as

A persons personality is unique to that person there are no two people in the world that have the same personalities. A person’s personality comes over time as they grow up to be an adult. As a person grows they learn what they like and what they do not. What a person goes thought in their life growing up can make them what they are as an adult. The psychodynamic theory says that a person’s behavior comes from psychological forces that happened in their life. If a person is raped at a young age, this could be a big part of their life and how they act. If anything happens to a person as they are growing up this could make them who they are as an adult.

Trait Theory of Personality
Trait theory focuses on the levels of different traits, or tendencies that make up dimensions of personality. The most widely accepted model is the five factor model of personality. The five dimensions are openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness, and neuroticism (Kowalski & Westen, 2011). If we apply this theory to Eva Peron, we can see that she

Personality is totality of qualities and traits, as of character or behavior, which are peculiar to a specific person. The set of emotional qualities, ways of behaving, etc. that makes a person different from other people.

of an individual. Personality tests, as an example, commonly analyse candidates according to the ‘Big-Five’ personality factors approach from Costa and McCree (1992). The BigFive factors to be measured in a selection process are: extraversion, neuroticism/emotional stability, agreeableness, conscientiousness and individualism. With regards to this, research findings indicate a causal relationship between the Big-five personality factors and job performance of an employee. Future and conclusion: Due to increased competition environment among organisations, recruitment and selection processes tend to utilise more effective selection tools in order to find the desired candidates.

In the past twenty years, it has been discovered that there is a genetic component to every human trait and behavior. However, genetic influence on traits and behavior is partial because genetics account on average for half of the variation of most traits. Urie Bronfrenbrenner, who studies genetics, said, "It is not nature vs. nurture, but the interaction of nature and nurture that drives development." Researchers are finding that the balance between genetic and environmental influences for certain traits change as people get older. Also, people may react to us in a certain way because of a genetically influenced personality and, we may choose certain experiences

“Big Five” personality traits. The Big Five traits are also referred to as the "Five Factor Model" or FFM.
The Big five factors are Openness, Conscientiousness, Extraversion, Agreeableness, and Neuroticism.
Openness is a general appreciation for art, emotion, adventure, unusual ideas, imagination, curiosity, and variety of experience. The trait distinguishes imaginative people from down-to-earth, conventional people. People who are open to experience are intellectually curious, appreciative of art, and sensitive to beauty. They tend to be, compared to closed people, more creative and more aware of their feelings. They are more likely to hold unconventional beliefs.

A definition of a successful life is hard to come up with on your own. If you look up a successful life in a dictionary you can find the definition to be the accomplishment of one’s goals, the attainment of wealth, positions, and honors. The true definition is much more than that, there needs to be a spiritual aspect. I believe that a successful life is a fruitful life that points to Christ. In my opinion Mr. Anthony Rossi lived a very successful life, not only is he know as a great man and great business man. He is more importantly known as a great man of God.

Research, Statistics, and Psychology
Psychology is the scientific investigation of mental processes and behavior (Kowalski & Westen, 2007, p. 3). During the late 19th century, psychology became an actual science because of the fascination of human behavior. Psychologists use observation to measure human behavior better to understand mental and biological processes, motives, and personality traits. Human behavior may be understood through applied and academic science (Psychology Majors, 2011). Based on this, research using the scientific method is necessary for statistical psychology.

A. Psychodynamic – The oldest form of therapy that considers an individual’s personality to be a product of dynamic unconscious interactions that develop in early childhood, an imbalance of which is thought to result in abnormal behavior. (Id, Ego, and Superego.) The psychodynamic model is best used to treat depression and some other forms of mood or stress disorders. Psychodynamic therapy, unfortunately, is considered pseudoscience. Not that it doesn’t work to help patients (it most certainly does), but the theories lack falsifiability as they cannot be scientifically verified. Sigmund

managers to follow in order to effectively institute change in an organization’s behavior.
The 11 Reasons Employees Resist Change are:
- An individual’s predisposition toward change.
- Surprise and fear are unknown
- Climate of mistrust
- Fear of failure
- Loss of status and/or job security
- Peer pressure
- Disruption of cultural traditions and/or group relationships
- Personality conflicts
- Lack of tact and/or poor timing
- Nonreinforcing reward systems
- Past success
Each of these responses is an emotional/behavior response displayed by individuals towards a real or imagined work change. Resistance to change can be as small as resignation or as big as someone sabotaging the change process.
