Mitchell, a college freshman, is not very consistent with showing up for class and turning in his assignments when they are due. Research studies would suggest that Mitchell's inconsistent behavior: is not necessarily unusual. is a sign of learned helplessness. indicates he is emotionally withdrawn and troubled. reflects a problem in another area of his life. is a sign of an overactive id.

    I don't think that the whole idea of the Id, Ego, and Superego is widely accepted, in the scientific community. I mean there are some psychologists who believe in it. But I don't think the idea has actually been supported by research. ~~~~~~~~~~~ I am actually leaning on the first choice. He's late for class, and hardly ever turns his work in on time. Have you guys talked about the Big Five domains of personality in class yet? Mitchell here might not have a very CONSCIENTIOUS personality. What that means is that he's not very organized, or timely. Some people's personalities are low in conscientiousness. And that's not an unusual thing.

    Okay, how about I give you a quick run-down of each one? If you'd like to learn more, you can do a little research. Just type it in Google, lol. ~~~~~~~~ PROJECTIVE TESTS are a category of personality tests. There are many specific kinds of projective tests. Like....have you heard of the Rorschach Test? Some people call it the Inkblot Test. It's where you look at a black splash of ink, and you describe, to the psychologist, the kinds of pictures that you're seeing. Like this one: http://holisticgender.files.wordpress.com/2008/05/rorschach.jpg And depending on what pictures your mind sees, in the inkblots, it's supposed to reveal something about your personality. Again, the Rorscach Test is only ONE example of a Projective Test. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ TAT stands for "Thematic Apperception Test." Some people call it the "Picture Interpretation Technique." It's where we look at a picture, like this: http://www.utpsyc.org/TATintro/TATlab.jpg And we're supposed to tell a story about the picture. Any story we want. And the psychologist listens to our story, and tries to learn more about our personalities, based on the kinds of stories that we tell. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The MMPI stands for the "Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory." It's a test of 567 questions. And there are no right or wrong answers. We just answer them by telling the truth, as we see it. Psychologists use this test to help them diagnose mental disorders. They can look at the way that people answer the questions, and learn more about the person's personality, and the kinds of mental disorders that the person may be experiencing. Unfortunately, I don't know any of the questions on this test. But I do know that a lot of research has shown that this test is reliable. It's not PERFECT, but it's dependable. And many psychologists today use it.
