Welcome to Psychology
Hello all, I hope you are having a great summer! For summer work please read your assigned paper and then fill out the wikispaces related to your paper. You can always look at the example that I started for you here. Please finish your paper and wiki by August 1st. Following that, I would like you to read at least one other wiki, add to it, correct it, comment on it , or edit it. I highly suggest that you at least briefly read that paper before you make comments/ suggestions. You will have until we return to school to make those comments/edits.
See you in August!
See you in August!

videos on brain conditions
Phineas Gage had a 3-4cm by 1m long iron rod shoot through his head/brain. His mood changed and was no longer considered the same person after the accident
Broca's and Wernick's
Broca's area controls the movement or formation of words (usually slow to speak, as they are 'looking' for the correct word)
Wernick's area deals with comprehension and competency of language (normal speed speech but nonsense is produced)
Brocas in Sara Scott
Sara Scoot had a stroke that stopped blood flow and killed cells in her Broca's area
In this case the person believes that they are repeating the information properly. Also notice that she has difficulty "showing" instead of repeating indicating comprehension may be "off"
Hypothalamus stimulation and rats
This video talks a lot about drugs, but it was the best video to describe this.
Today you will be taking a test similar to the MBTI. Please go here to get started. When you get to the website you can go to the "personality test" that is found at the top of the page. Go ahead and take you time filling in the answers as truthfully as possible. The questions will give you two polar options and this particular "test" allows for some answers to be more towards one direction than the other.
Note: this "test" is being taken for educational/entertainment purposes only. A true MBTI would need to be done with a clinical professional, and there would be an associated follow up session.
Following the "test" I would like you to do the following:
Read through your "personality" describe traits that you agree with and those that may not fit you or your particular style.
After that research if there are any criticisms of the MBTI.
Does the first website I sent you to today talk about any negatives about the "test". Why do you think that may or may not be. What about this website?
Has the test been found to be valid?
If not so why do 89 of the US Fortune 100 companies use it.
What might be a better "personality test"? Why would that test be better?
Please do not rush through today's work. Go slow and do good research.
