Definitions of the Different Personality Types
Definitions of the Different Personality Types The Realistic Type (R) This personality type shows a definite preference for working with objects, tools and machinery. This leads to the mastering of manual skills, i.e. skills of a mechanical, agricultural, electrical and technical nature. As this personality type usually shows a clear aversion to educational, intellectual, social and creative activities, a lack of social, educational and verbal skills may be experienced. This type prefers occupations such as those of electricians, aircraft mechanics, plumbers, toolmakers, farmers and draughtsmen. The Investigative Type (I) The investigative type is characterised by a preference for the systematic investigation of the physical, biological and cultural phenomena. Consequently this leads to the mastery of scientific and mathematical skills. Careers preferred by the investigative type inter alia include those of physicist, biologist, mathematician, anthropologist and chemist. The Artistic Type (A) This type shows a preference for achieving his or her creativity in a free environment. This usually leads to mastery of artistic skills, irrespective of whether they relate to language, art, music or drama. Occupations relating to this type include those of actor/actress, interior decorator, musician and journal. The Social Type (S) The social type shows a definite preference for
Do you consider intelligence to have a stronger genetic or environmental basis?
Do you consider intelligence to have a stronger genetic or environmental basis? Since the term nature-nurture was first initiated by Galton (1883, c.f. Plomin, 1988) the question of whether intelligence has a stronger environmental or genetic basis has been the source of much controversy and debate (Bouchard., Lykken., McGue., Segal., & Tallegen, 1990a, 1991., Bouchard & McGue, 1981., Hernstein & Murray, 1994., Plomin, 1988., Scarr 1997). Traditionally, research into intelligence has been diverged by two opposing positions; Behavioural Genetic Theory and Socialization Theory (Scarr, 1997). Whilst Socialization theory provides useful insights into the qualitative nature of differences in behaviour and intelligence, methods used by such research are criticised as being "antiquated" and "confounded" (Scarr, 1997, p.34) hampered by their inability to include genetically informative designs (Baumrind, 1993., Hoffman, 1991., Scarr, 1997). Behavioural genetic theory on the other hand not only describes the genetic contribution on intelligence (Bouchard & McGue, 1981., Bouchard et al., 1990a, 1991) it also emphasizes the importance of environmental influences which provides a crucial explanation for the major source of variation in behaviour (Eysenck., & Fulkner, 1983., Loehlin & Nicholls, 1976, c.f. Plomin, 1988., Plomin, Loehlin, & Defries, 1985, Plomin & Daniels, 1987., Scarr,

Many people never consider the possibility of joining the political field. But why? Is it because it appears too daunting? Does it seem too cut- throat and competitive? Or does it just sound boring? In an attempt to find out more and to hopefully dispel these misconceptions, I decided to ask those within the political field for the truth. While it is a highly competitive field to get into, once you have established yourself in any department, it is very hard to leave the political world. Your department invests a lot in you- including funding of extra degrees, and they encourage working across departments- allowing you to increase your scope. There is so much depth and breadth to the field, so many opportunities available, from working abroad to learning new skills and acquiring new knowledge. Many could argue that it is a world of it's own where every kind of discipline can coexist. From administrative work, to public affairs, to IT, to marketing- the political field is not a closed shop. Farzana Sunderji, a qualified barrister, decided to move into a career of politics to broaden her experience and see what she could achieve. She found the bar challenging and insular and wanted to become a part of the bigger picture. She now works for a minister in the Foreign Office who deals with issues such as human rights, drugs and international crime, climate change and

Compare and Contrast the use of setting in at least two of the texts you have examined this semester. Twentieth Century Fiction brought about change in literary methods and the development of different narrative styles. Modernism a term that came in to use, since the second world war, challenges traditional concepts of story and plot, and brings about questioning, looking for meaning and truth. The Modernist novel delves in to the sub conscious minds of its characters, bringing about techniques such as 'stream of consciousness'. Post Modernism celebrates the modern world rather than question it, rejecting the idea of truth and meaning. It rejects grand narratives and explores the extreme, mixing fantasy with what is real; this is seen in the technique 'Magic Realism'. Some Twentieth Century Fiction, in particular Modernism and Post Modernism present human beings alienated from their environment. This essay will explore the use of setting in two Twentieth Century novels, 'The Magic Toyshop', (1969) by Angela Carter, which is a form of post modernist writing and 'Love on the Dole', (1933) by Walter Greenwood, which can be classed as Modernism. The setting of the novel can be very important in social and historical factors, depicting the mood of the environment the novel takes place and how it relates to the story being told. Walter Greenwood sets his novel 'Love on the
The current system of environmental governance is a diffuse process, spread through many different treaty bodies and other U.N. institutions. At present UNEP, is the primary environmental organ in the system.
INTRODUCTION When the United Nations was founded in 1945, environmental issues were not yet on most national agendas, let alone on the international agenda. As a consequence, the U.N. Charter does not even mention the word "environment". In the years since, environmental degradation has emerged as a pressing international concern. Wind currents, rain patterns, rivers, and streams carry pollutants hundreds or even thousands of miles from their sources, violating national borders with impunity. On an even larger scale, the global environmental problems of ozone depletion, climate change, deforestation, and the loss of the Earth's biological diversity threaten all nations.1 Furthermore, recent research identifies population growth and natural resource scarcity as important factors in exacerbating social tensions and provoking conflict in many corners of the globe. As the problems have worsened, environmental issues have gradually moved onto the international political agenda. To date, governments have adopted more than 170 environmental treaties concerning subjects of shared concern: acid rain contamination, ocean pollution, endangered species depletion, hazardous waste exportation, and Antarctica preservation. More than two-thirds of these agreements have been reached since the landmark 1972 U.N. Conference on the Human Environment in Stockholm. This conference created the
Identifying unknown sample using test of functional group and IR/UV spectra.
Identifying unknown sample using test of functional group and IR/UV spectra Introduction The aim of this lab report is to identify the sample drug 81 from one of the possibilities which are supplied. There are: * Paracetamol * 4-amino salicylic acid * Salicycliamide * Benzocaine acid * 4-hydroxyacetophenone * 3-aminoacetophenone The way to identify the unknown drug sample is using simple physical and chemical tests which are test of functional group and IR/UV spectra. Each of the compound have different functional groups. However, in unknown drugs sample (81) it may contain phenol OH group, carbonyl group C = O, ester group -CO-O-, amide group -CO.NH2 , primary aromatic amine group -NH2 and N-aryl amide group. This predictable test allows to attempt a variety of reactions on an organic compound and determine what functional groups are present in sample drug ( 81). Furthermore, IR spectra which is used to gather information about a compound's structure is particularly useful for identifying the presence of specific functional groups and other properties in the sample. In UV spectra, one will be taken for water and the other will be taken for basic solvent which sodium hydroxide. This is to explain about the wavelength, peaks whether it is bathochromic or hypsochromic shift and whether the sample will ionise or interact with the solvents. Moreover, there is another
With reference to a range of geomorphic hazards you have studied, examine the role of human activities in both preventing and controlling this hazard type.
With reference to a range of geomorphic hazards you have studied, examine the role of human activities in both preventing and controlling this hazard type. Preventing geomorphological hazards virtually impossible simply because the power of the earth is far greater than the power of humans and the ways in which we could try to prevent such hazards occurring outright. The example of the Californians highlights this well; an attempt was made to lubricate the San Andreas with water in the hope that movement would be more flowing and thus produce less energetic shockwave, as it is the vibrations of earthquakes that cause the body of the damage.. Preventing the geomorphic hazards from being a threat to human is very possible, particularly through human activity because our technology is developing rapidly and so as a result we are understanding the hazards that a posed by geomorphological events and there are many hundreds of individual example to prove this. Controlling the effects of geomorphological hazards is possible, and is successful as shown by a variety of examples worldwide, although it is by no means simple. Preventing geomorphological hazards from ever occurring is virtually impossible, simple because humans do not have the power to stop the convection currents that drive tectonic plate movement, we don't have the power to prevent a volcano from erupting and we don't
Identification of an Unknown Weak Acid
Analytical Chemistry Laboratory 319 Experiment 7: Identification of an Unknown Weak Acid Formal Report Bonnie LaPierre Drawer G-1 Lab Date: Thursday March 13, 2008 INTRODUCTION: One of the more common reactions seen in chemistry is the acid/base reaction. The most common result of an acid/base reaction is the formation of water and a salt. Such a reaction can be highly useful in the analysis of an unknown acid or base. By titrating the unknown analyte with a standard reagent, several characteristics of the unknown can be determined, as well as the identity of the analyte itself. One important aspect of an acid/base reaction is the pH of the solution. Since an acid/base reaction is often performed by titrating an acid with a basic solution (or vice versa), monitoring the pH during the titration shows how the acidity is changing as reagent is added. By recording these pH values during the course of the reaction, a titration curve can be generated; from this curve, several characteristics of the reaction can be determined such as equivalence point(s), pKa(s), and end point(s), etc. In this experiment, the objective was to identify an unknown weak acid. This was accomplished by titrating the unknown acid with a standardized base. Using a pH meter, the pH values were recorded as the volume of added base increased until the pH reached a specified limit of 11. From these
Synthesis of Benzocaine
Synthesis of Benzocaine A. Introduction/Aims: The aim of the current investigation is to investigate the acid-catalysed Fischer esterification mechanism underlying the synthesis of the anaesthetic benzocaine using p-aminobenzoic acid and ethanol in excess. The resulting synthesised compound was subject to IR and melting point analyses in order to determine the identity and indeed the purity of the obtained sample. Benzocaine exhibits two main components common to the anaesthetic family: (1) an aromatic system usually having directly attached an ester and (2) a one to four unit hydrocarbon chain. The ester group is essential in body detoxification of this substance due to enzymatic cleavage of the ester linkage. Other anaesthetics may also contain a tertiary amine functional group which translates into the compound being soluble in the body. B. Stoichiometric Equations: C. Reactant table: Reactant/product M.W. (g mol-1) Quantities used/obtained Moles used/obtained Mole ratio theoretical/actual 4-aminobenzoic acid 37.14 5.00 g 0.036 /1, limiting Ethanol 46.07 65 mL = 51.42 g .12 /31.1, in excess Sulfuric acid 98.08 5 mL = 9.15 g 0.093 Benzocaine 65.19 4.05 g 0.025 0.025/0.036 = 0.69 The limiting reagent of this reaction is p-aminobenzoic acid. Thus the theoretical yield of benzocaine is expected to be 0.036 mols as a 1:1 ratio exists between
The igneous rocks of north-east England
The igneous rocks of north-east England The area of north-east England, east of the Pennines and between the Scottish border to the north and Teesside to the south has a variety of igneous rocks of different ages, and in this essay I will try to describe the major types that are found, concentrating on the Whin Sill, the Cheviots, and the Weardale Granite in particular, but also commenting on other igneous rocks of the region. I have included a map of the area to show the main bands of igneous rock. The main igneous rock of the north-east is the Great Whin Sill, the largest hypabyssal intrusion in Britain which was intruded approximately 295 million years ago. As the name suggests, it is an example of a common concordant intrusion known as a sill, and the whole Whin Sill complex is a number of lenses of differing thicknesses linked together at depth. The sill sweeps in an arc around the Cheviots and forms many of the most recognisable geological features of north-east England, the best known perhaps being the north facing scarp in Northumberland upon which part of Hadrian's Wall stands. The Farne Islands are part of the sill, as are the crags at Bamburgh, which are home to the castle. The coastline between Dunstanburgh and Cullernose Point, as well as the rock that leads to High Force waterfall in Co. Durham are also parts of the Whin Sill. The Whin Sill has a total area of
