HMC has faced some of the difficulties & problems that affect its market position & brand image. Their problems is going around three main problems which are "Sales, rate & quality". HMC rates was so cheap which made the product is undervalued by the customers. In fact, the cheap price of their cars reflect its quality as some customers are needed for expensive cars. Therefore, Hyundai goal in US only to maintain its share not to gain more profits & sales in one had. On the other hand, segmenting low level –moderate level people and focus on cost saving cars rather than high quality oriented cars affected it's brand image & identity. Moreover, Hyundai is caring only to save money by having cheap labor which also affect its quality of working and having lots of workers strikes. In addition, we can't forget that inherited Chairmanships that gave the priority to the family to run the business rather than the qualified professional from management.

...Abstract Personality has been assessed using many different approaches but non have come up with exactly what makes our personality. Personality is a pattern of enduring, distinctive thoughts, emotions and behaviors that characterize the way an individual adapts to the world. Behavior, character traits, attitude, environments we are exposed in makes up one’s personality. Humanistic perspective is the emphasis on a person’s capacity for personal growth and positive human qualities. Humanistic psychologists believe that we all have the ability to control our lives to achieve what we desire. Carl Rogers was struggling to understand the unhappiness of the individuals he encountered in therapy when he began his career as a psychotherapist. Rogers devised his own approach to personality. We have good tendencies towards growth and fulfillment but we are so unhappy because oftenly our need for positive regard from others is not met unconditionally (King 2011). Unconditional positive regard is the term Rogers used for being accepted, valued and treated positively regardless of one’s behavior. Unfortunately not everyone rates us the same way, some often value us only when we behave in particular ways that meet what Rogers called conditions of worth. According to my own perspective, this is when we have to get out of our comfort zones individually and satisfy what someone rates as good, because we need to be accepted, condition of......

...Singer’s Moral Guilt T PHI 208 January 7, 2013 Peter Singer’s goal in “Famine, Affluence and Morality” was to try and to get people all around the world to realize that they, as human beings, have a moral responsibility to help other human beings in need if they can. He argues that the way we view moral issues and our moral conceptual schemes need to be altered, and in fact the whole way in which our society takes our way of life for granted. Peter Singer’s argument is that “if it is in our power to prevent something bad from happening, without thereby sacrificing anything of comparable moral importance, we ought, morally, to do it”. (Singer, 1972). He believes that everyone in similar circumstances as himself should give as much as possible, up to the point that they might also be at risk of poverty themselves. He argues that if everyone in society all across the world did this, that the world would not only solve the Bengal crisis, but would also end world hunger all together. That also by not contributing to helping people suffering from tragedies we are not being morally responsible as a race to our “global village”. Counter points to Peter Singer’s argument that he makes are as follows: First he states that the view that he has taken on the Bengal crisis and world hunger may seem “too drastic a revision of our moral scheme”. (Singer, 1972). That in fact people would not judge other people in the way that he suggests they should, that they would save their......

...Personality PSY/504 June 25,2012 Elisa Doebler-Irvine Personality Personality Is perceived differently by the general public and psychology professionals. Through examining the behaviors of the term psychologist view it a little differently. The contents of this essay will describe the definition of personality used by psychologist professionals today. Later, this essay will go in depth explaining the differences between case studies, correlation designs, quasi experimental designs, and true experiments. Each of these methods will be describes from what information they all provide and what advantages and disadvantages they hold. Every individual has a different view of the term personality. Idealistically a definition is created by how people use the word within sentences of different structures. Philosophically speaking the term personality is defined by how the general public perceives and uses the word (Cervone & Pervin, 2010). The general definition of personality consists of a combination of different characteristics or qualities that produce a subject’s distinctive character. Personality is built up of different qualities that can make someone interesting, different, and/or popular. It is defined as an enduring pattern of thought, feeling, and behaviors that are unique to each individual. Psychologist, however, have a much more in detail definition of personality. For instance psychologist addresses three issues when analyzing personality. These issues......

...Introduction Personality is defined as the consistent pattern of emotions, thoughts and behaviours that define a particular individual as well as the psychological mechanisms that bring about such aforementioned tendencies (McShane, Olekalns, & Travaglione, 2013). It also refers to individual reactions and interactions with others hence, it is an inner psychological feature as Hiriyappa (2012) describes. This predisposition explains behaviours and attitudes of employees hence a core determinant in organization behaviour as Kumar, Bakhshia and Rani (2009) explain. Personality results from an amalgamation of nature and nurture factors. In the latter, innate qualities such as brain and hereditary factors, determine personality forms. In the former, brain stimulation aspects that define personality occur through genetic transmission (Parikh & Gupta, 2010). In the latter, genetic and molecular structures found in chromosomes, determine individual personality. Nurturing factors that determine personality are sourced from personal experience, behaviour and empiricism. Physical factors regarding a person’s appearance define one’s personality when interacting with others (Jennifer & Gareth, 2008). The culture of societies determines its members’ personalities particularly on aspects of interaction, cooperation and coordination in relationships. Religious and cultural factors also shape up personalities. This is because norms, regulations and convictions determine......

...Personality Danielle Taliaferro PSY 211 June 5, 2013 Andrea Mc Lellan, MA, MFT Personality The study of personality is one of the major topics of interest within psychology. Each of us, as human beings, influences much that is within us and around us. Each person has many psychological attributes; feelings, thoughts and motivations. It is our personality that orchestrates our psychological qualities. Some individuals cannot help but wonder how the personality works, how it came to be and what it might mean for their future. Some also wonder about the personalities of others; how they are the same or different from them. Although these questions are intriguing, the question that must be answered first is the most basic: “What is personality?” Personality encompasses the many characteristics that arise from within an individual. It is what makes an individual unique. Researchers have developed four different perspectives on personality. Each of these perspectives attempts to describe different patterns in personality, including how these patters form and how people differ on an individual level. Psychoanalytic Perspective emphasizes the importance of early childhood experiences and the unconscious mind. This perspective was created by psychiatrist Sigmund Freud who believed that things hidden in the unconscious could be revealed in a number of different ways, including through dreams, free association and slips of the tongue. Freud’s work shaped the fields of......

...The 5 big personality traits are significant to work-related aspects of personality. But to first understand the personality traits we must talk about deep level diversity and surface level diversity. Deep level diversity is differences such as personality and attitudes that are communicated through verbal and nonverbal behaviors and are learned only through extended interaction with others. Surface level diversity is differences such as age, sex, race/ethnicity, and physical disabilities that are observable, typically unchangeable, and easy to measure. People often use the dimensions of surface-level diversity to form initial impressions about others. Over time, however, as people have a chance to get to know each other, initial impressions based on age, sex, race, ethnicity, and mental or physical disabilities give way to deeper impressions based on behavior and psychological characteristics. When we think of others this way, we are focusing on deep-level diversity. Deep-level diversity represents differences that can be learned only through extended interaction with others. Examples of deep-level diversity include differences in personality, attitudes, beliefs, and values Recognizing deep-level diversity requires getting to know and understand one another better. And that matters, because it can result in less prejudice, discrimination, and conflict in the workplace. These changes can then lead to better social integration, the degree to which organizational or group......

...Personality Joseph Torres PSY 405: Theories of Personality March 17, 2014 Sarah Lind University of Phoenix Personality Psychology of personality is the study of personality, which a person’s differences distinguishes him or her from others. Defining personality becomes difficult because of the many aspects that are included. The word theory tends to be confused with other words like hypothesis or philosophy, which many factors can affect a person’s personality. There are different theories that assist psychologists in determining how or why a person develops characteristics and traits. Without a clear understanding, personality will continue to be a focus for psychological research and theories. Personality Definition The term “personality” in the Latin reference means persona, which is like a mask an actor, wears in shows during the Greek or Roman performances (Feist & Feist, 2006). The actor superimposes his or her persona to establish an appearance in the characters plot. During modern day, personality has a separation from false appearances in regards to behavior that is observable. Personality tends to describe the characteristics or traits of people. There are consistencies of behaviors that traits take account for through time, which characteristics describe the attributes of a person. An example would be a person’s intelligence of physique. A pattern of traits, which are permanent, with characteristics that are unique provide consistency to the......

For this assignment, we are required to take the personality test and write a comprehensive analysis of ourselves and match our personality to the most suitable job based on the big five-personality model, which are extraversion, agreeableness, neuroticism, openness and conscientiousness. I took the test and it shows that the highest score is 4 out of 5 for agreeableness, and openness comes second with a score of 3.4 out of 5. According to resources, agreeableness describes people who are fond of working with other people. In general, individuals who have this trait are trustworthy, cooperative, considerate, friendly, and helpful. These people are easily liked and they can easily interact or communicate well with others because they have a positive view of human nature. In a career test, social harmony is one of the most important goals for individuals who grades high on this particular personality trait.

...The many theorists of personality and psychologists cannot agree on a definition of personality. They understand that it is what makes each person unique, but other than that they are baffled. This is not from a lack of trying. Many theorists have been studying personality for years. Sigmund Freud has theorized many things about personality and his work is still being used today. Nature verse nurture is another debate in the personality world. Psychologists cannot come to a conclusion as to whether it is genetics or the environment that gives people their personality. Psychologists have theorized many ways as to how people obtain their personality, whether it is nature or nurture; this paper will discuss that topic. The word personality has no set in stone meaning. The reason for this is because psychologists cannot agree on the meaning. Each branch of psychology will think that the meaning of personality is different, as well as each psychologist within the branch thinking that the meaning is different. Although psychologists do not agree on the same definition they can agree on what it does to a point; this is the generic definition of personality. They agree that personality is the characteristics and traits of a person that attribute to each person’s own behavior. Since psychologists cannot agree on just one definition of personality, many psychologists have come up with theories for what it is and different concepts about it. According to Feist & Feist (2009),” A......

In society every person has different traits such as skin, color, height and weight. They have different types of personalities because individuals are not alike.

It develops during the process of socialization in a culture of a specific group or society.

...performance. They may be physical barriers or they may be systems or processes that discourage better performance. Behavior analysis therefore also views behavior as a function of the environment” (McSween and Pounds, ¶6). The important implication in this concept is that managers also need to consider ways to change the job in ways that make it easier or more convenient to perform better. The next giant leap in organizational performance will require managers and employees alike to understand the dynamics that are behind the effects of their behavior on themselves and others. Personality and Behavior Analysis Behavior analysis provides managers with tools they need to be more effective in developing relationships. Too often employers believe that the root cause of most employees’ performance problems is related to who they are (their personality) rather than what they do (their behavior.) They tend to communicate the belief -- often unintentionally -- that performance problems are related to personality. The solution is therefore to change the employee through some process or to get another employee. This not only doesn’t work but communicates blame to employees from a moral perspective.

...PERSONALITY There are many different theories of personality; the first step is to understand exactly what is meant by the term personality. A brief definition would be that personality is made up of the characteristics pattern of thought, feelings, and behaviors that make a person unique. Besides this, personality arises from within the individual and remains fairly consistent throughout life. “Generally speaking personality refers to the unique core set of characteristics that influence the way one thinks, act, and feels” (Licht, Hull, & Ballantyne, 2014, p.467). After visiting the 41 question personality website, my overall personality profile was fantastic, real, and true. My results show that I am warm-hearted, popular and conscientious. The assessment further reveals that I tend to put the need of others over mine, I feel a strong sense of responsibility and duty, value traditions, and security, and interested in serving others. However, I need positive reinforcement to feel good about myself, well-developed sense of space, and function. My four different dimensions of personality are extroversion (E) vs. introversion (I), sensing(S) vs intuitive (I), thinking (T) vs feeling (F), and judging (J) vs perceiving (P). Extroversion tends to manifest as outgoing, talkative, and energetic behavior, whereas introversion is manifest as more reserved and solitary behavior. According to (Licht, Hull, & Ballantyne, 2014), “extroversion dimension tends to display a marked......

...Personality and Behavior – Essay Sample Each individual develops a specific and ultimately unique personality that encompasses the person’s upbringing throughout childhood.  These personalities produce many different behaviors as options for how to act and react to any given set of situations.  To examine the differences between two individuals, this paper seeks to examine the answers provide to basic interview questions for the interviewer and the interviewee.  Each individual is similar in age and economic background; therefore, their responses can generate a keen insight into the personality and behavior similarities and differences based on very specific questions. The first question that was asked to each individual was if the person remembers information more accurately if he/she observes the behavior being performed or if he/she prefers to read how the behavior is performed.  The interviewee provided this answer: “I am more of a visual person. If I can see it being performed I retain it easier. Reading is more audible not visual and I am more of a hands on person.”  On the other hand, the interviewer responded by stating that information is easier to be retained when “I see it performed rather than just reading it. When I read something like instructions it takes much longer for me to understand it and sometimes I have to read it multiple times before I can comprehend what they are telling me, but once I see it performed I can copy the actions quickly and normally......

So after that introduction it should be no surprise that Narcissistic Personality Disorder was the highest rank personality disorder that I ranked for. Understanding that I narcissism is something that could easily be seen in me it is almost a most that I keep myself in check, meaning I maintain my humility while in therapy. Not to think too highly of myself and ensure that I will continue to have empathy and sympathy towards to clients that I will see in therapy. However there are some pros and cons to having a tad bit NPD. I could easily become a role model because I think high of myself. I also could make people feel comfortable about themselves because I am so comfortable with who I am. The con side of that is that people could feel intimidated about my aura. It could be that I am too comfortable with that and myself could cause people to feel like I am not relatable. Also I could become so engulfed with me that I lose sight of what the client is there for. I would not want clients to see me and think I would lack empathy for them nor do I want them to think that I can not get passed myself and lose their trust. My second highest personality disorder was Schizotypal Personality Disorder. I thought it would be Paranoid Personality Disorder but I can see how I could relate to SPD. Within the last 4 or 5 years I have noticed that within my romantic relationships, around month 6, I......
