Introduction

Final Project: Self Analysis WRITTEN BY: LAKIA MARSHALL INSTRUCTOR: MICHEAL FORD CLASS : PSY 285 I am independent, frank, and very nonchalant. I have picked these three words because I think that they accurately describe my personality. I would say that I am independent because I am able to rely on myself. I have a high sense of pride and really don't like to ask for help because of that I make it a point to make sure that I can do things on my own. I would say that I am frank because I don't like to hide what it is that I am thinking. If I feel it I will say it and pride myself on being the person who says what others want to say but won't. With that said, I am not a trouble maker and don't just go around raining on others parades but I will give you my honest opinion if you ask for it and sometimes when you don't. Finally to describe myself I would say that I am nonchalant. I tend to be very Zen for the most part. I don't bother other people and try my best to treat others the way I would treat myself. I don't like a lot of drama or trouble so I tend to stay to myself to remain stress free. In the terms of whether or not I an independent or interdependent I would say that I am independent. ...read more.

That just means you have to work that much harder to get it. This teaching as a child has affected my ability to conform. What may suite others and be fine may not be the best for me. I consider myself to be a nonconformist. I am not afraid to go against the grain and most of the time I choose to do just that. I don't think that being a self-proclaimed nonconformist is by any definition a bad thing. However when it comes to authority figures there is that part of m\e that likes to see how far out of the box I can go. For instance in high school I was always pushing the envelope for getting into trouble. I would always bend the rules to what I wanted just enough so that I wouldn't break them. I remember attempting to skip class a getting caught. My friends that were with me took their punishment but as for me I wasn't willing to accept it. After having my mother called to school to talk about what I did, it was explained that I was trying to leave school grounds. I then explained that I never stepped off school property and therefore didn't qualify for the punishment being given. Needless to say I didn't receive punishment for leaving school grounds but I did get detention for being insubordinate. ...read more.

Conclusion

My self-control is very important to me and dictates a lot of my relationships I find that if I can let go when it comes to building a personal relationship with someone it is a trait that I value. When it comes to picking a companion I look for three things they are honesty, humility and independence. Those are very important to me. As for sustaining relationships I don't have a game plan. I usually let the chips fall where they may. I try to give my all and I expect the same in return. I don't nit-pick about the things I can live with and I dismiss the person if there is a portion I can't live without. In order to resolve conflict in my relationships I tend to use the line "Lets agree to disagree", I won't tell a person that they are wrong when they may not be but if I disagree with the notion whatever it maybe I use that line. That way no one is being discounted and no one is right or wrong. This is my self-analysis. It is 100% my thoughts and outlook on things. In some circles it may be the right way to be or the wrong thing to be in others. All I can say is I am who I am. . o Relationships * What factors cause you to be attracted to someone? * What do you do to help sustain your relationships? * What do you do to resolve conflict? Provide examples to demonstrate your answer. ...read more.
