Module 4

Assignment 2: Myers-Briggs Type Indicator

Over the years, trait theory has been increasingly used by corporations in hiring and in career counseling. Research has shown that certain combinations of personality traits fit well with different career paths. Thus, personality trait tests for specific jobs can be predictive of both success and satisfaction. Understanding your own personality-trait combinations can give you great insight into your own strengths and weaknesses. With this understanding, you can work to grow your strengths and minimize your weaknesses. 

In this assignment, you will explore your personality using a personality test and then analyze the results. 

Part 1 

First, explore your personality preferences by completing Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MTBI). The full version of the test can only be administered by a trained professional; however, there are many online informal versions of the test which you can find on the Internet. You can search for the test using any one of the following keywords:

  • Personality test + Myers-Briggs typology
  • Myers-Briggs test 

Record your four-lettered personality type after completion of the test and use the Internet to interpret your personality type. 

Part 2 

In this part of the assignment, you will write a research paper that analyses your results. Do the following: 

  • Mention your four-letter type and the URL of the Web site where you took the test.
  • Discuss whether this type accurately represents what you know about yourself. Examine the four spectrums and explain your answer thoroughly. Substantiate your agreement or disagreement with real-life behavioral examples.
  • Analyze what you consider the strengths and the weaknesses or challenges of this type. List three strengths and three weaknesses and provide a rationale for each.
  • Evaluate why this test could be a valuable tool for an employer.
  • Analyze how a clinician may use this test as a tool for promoting meaningful interventions in treatment.
  • Summarize what you have learned about yourself through this exercise.

Write a 3–4-page paper in Word format. Apply APA standards to citation of sources. Use the following file naming convention: LastnameFirstInitial_M4_A2.doc.

By Wednesday, February 8, 2017, deliver your assignment to the M4: Assignment 2 Dropbox.

Given these variables and design, what information would a factorial MANOVA provide you, psychology homework help

Considering your I/O psychology research interests, identify two IVs (each with 2 categories) and three DVs that are measured on continuous scales. Think of DV measures that probably are moderately correlated with each other because they are measuring different components of the same or similar concepts (e.g., three different measures of academic performance). Given these variables and design, what information would a factorial MANOVA provide you?  What more would you want to know if you get significant results in the factorial MANOVA? Why would this be significant

to your research? (Research support is not required for this question.)

I have provided and example of how the questions needs to be answered. 

IV : Gender  IV 1 = Male Veteran and IV 2 = Female Veteran in the following 2 groups

  Category  1 – level of experience (entry, mid, experienced)

  Category  2 – college degree (none, Bachelors, Masters)

DV is:  Hiring data for:

    – Veteran hiring rate and

 – number of months taken to get hired

  – average salary range received


What information would a factorial MANOVA provide you?

A factorial MANOVA design can look at the relationships between the main effects of each of the IVs, and their interaction with the DV.  With the Factorial MANOVA the interaction effect is how the combinations of levels of the IVs influence the dependent variables.  The MANOVA can identify main effect as well as interaction effects between the IV’s and the DV.  The main effect would tell us if there is a difference between our IV and all of DV’s.  Since we have two IV’s with two levels each the factorial MANOVA can

examine effects across all other variables and evaluate significant effects.  The interaction effect can exist between factors such as there an effect between gender with college

degree and level of experience effect hiring rate or any of the other DV’s; determining significant effects on all of the dimensions.   Thus we can identify the relationships with the most significant influence.  This helps us to answer if the IV has a significant impact on the DV, how does the IV relate to the DVs and what are the separate relationships for each variable and the power of the effect on each. 

What more would you want to know if you getsignificant results in the factorial MANOVA? 

A significant result can be seen in a factorial MANOVA in through the separate F-values generated for the main effect and the interaction effect between IV we are using such as

with the Wilks or Pillai’s trace criterion to evaluate the significance level.  When we look at the significance level and find it to be statistically significant we reject our null  hypothesis since the DV was significantly affected.  We can also look at the partial eta square and see if the effect had a large or small effect on the variable.  In my example I could have a significant effect between the IV level of experience and the DV salary range with a small effect, as where I may have a statistically significant effect on IV with

college degree and salary range with a large effect size.  I would then see that both effected the DV but that college degree has more influence on salary then does level of


Why would this be significant to your research?

When there are several similar (correlated) DV’s the MANOVA allows me to analyze single variables without running multiple individual test and causing type I errors.  It also allows me to investigate how the IV’s influence each of DV singularly and collectively.  However, additional Post Hoc test need to be run for this level of comparison. Understanding how each variable differs from each other and how they may overlap in their influence  we can see to what degree they correlate and how much one may affect the other or how the combination effects it.

What is a perceptual set?

Perceptual set is a tendency to perceive or notice some aspects of the available sensory data and ignore others.

Our bodies are magnificent machines. One of the ways they demonstrate this is by taking repetitive motions and actions and reducing the resources needed to perform them. For instance, when a baby is learning to walk, each step is planned and performed. But after a relatively short period of time, they are running without giving it a thought – they just run (and run and run and run…)

Our brains do the same thing. The world is full of information that continually enters our senses. In order to speed up processing time and reduce the energy needed to perform those functions, it operates largely on what is expected and not necessarily on what is actually there.

And that is what Perception Set Theory gets into – how the brain “perceives” – or as the below link describes it – “Perceptual set theory stresses the idea of perception as an active process involving selection, inference and interpretation.”

Perceptual set is a tendency to perceive or notice some aspects of the available sensory data and ignore others. For instance, have you ever seen this:

Aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn’t mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoetnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be at the rghit pclae. The rset can be a toatl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe.

The brain doesn’t read every word but instead selects out important bits and teases out the rest based on expectation and inference.

Another kind of perceptual set is when we have a fear of snakes, to automatically assume that every suspicious looking thing in the grass is a snake – even though most times we’re looking at a garden hose.

There are a number of ways perception sets can change. If we’re hungry, the perception set will tend to look for food over other things.

The link has a great article about perception sets.


LASA: Mock Individual Assessment Final Draft

By Monday, July 3, 2017, submit to the M5 Assignment 2 a mock forensic assessment report based on a patient in a selected vignette. Provide your diagnostic impressions based on the DSM-5 criteria.

Complete the following:

  • Improve your interview and referral questions for the case vignette you selected in M1 Assignment 3.

Using this case vignette, add to your referral questions by integrating the feedback that you received from your instructor in M4 Assignment 2 on your mock interview questions and formulated hypothesis on why the individual needs the referral.

Example Referral Questions:

  • As a forensic mental health professional, what factors do you need to consider in your psychological testing for the forensic assessment report?
  • What are the pertinent multicultural consideration?
  • What behavioral observations do you make about the client by reading the case vignette?
  • What are your assessment options in working with the client?
  • What standard and accepted psychological tests might you apply to your client in a forensic setting? Select from the instruments you researched in M3 Assignment 2 RA.
  • How will you recognize and evaluate your client’s offender behaviors associated with malingering and deception?
  • What theoretical orientation do you want to use in this case for your treatment recommendations?
  • What is the case scenario that you have selected?
  • What is the reason for referral?
  • What is the purpose of the forensic assessment and report?
  • What is the nature of the problem presented in your selected case vignette?
  • What is the context in which the forensic assessment report will be used?
  • What is the background of your client? What are the symptoms displayed by your client and their significance in this case?
  • What is the mental status of your client? Be sure to elaborate on every major component addressed in the mental status examination.
  • What interview type and approach did you use with your client?
  • What tests are appropriate to use in your forensic assessment report? Identify one intelligence test, one objective personality test, and one projective test.
  • What collateral information will you use in the process of the evaluation?
  • How will you present your impressions of the client?
  • Revise your copy of Forensic Mental Health Professional Individual Assessment Report on the basis of your instructor’s feedback.

Using the Forensic Mental Health Professional Individual Assessment Report template that you downloaded for M4 Assignment 2, revise your evaluation and interpretation of the information provided to you in the case vignette that you selected. Synthesize the information you collected to create a forensic mental health professional individual assessment report. Your findings should be in a report format.

In a 10- to 12-page report, include only the following components:

    • Reason for Referral: Explain the objective of your case vignette analysis, clearly bringing out the aspects or reasons that motivated you to carry out the study.
    • Presentation: Create mock interview data and collateral information (you are to identify the questions to ask in the interview). Provide a synopsis of the interview. To support the mental status of your client, provide data based on your forensic assessment report and the mental status components you have identified.
    • Current Life Situation and Background Information: Explain the problem provided in your selected case vignette using the interview and mental status data. How does the data relate to the background and multicultural characteristics of your client and your behavioral observations?
    • Objective Testing: Identify the assessment instruments you would recommend to evaluate the client and explain the rationale for your recommendations. Describe the objective tests you have selected and their use. How did you apply these tests to your selected case vignette? According to your study, what is your analysis of the symptoms displayed by your client? What ethical and multicultural issues do you need to address? You will apply what you have learned from M3 Assignment 2 RA to this section.
    • Provide your diagnostic impressions based on DSM-5 criteria. What is your principal diagnosis? What is your secondary diagnosis? Are there other conditions that may be the focus of clinical attention to consider?
    • Conclusion and Recommendations: What is your hypothesis after taking into account the mental status examination, the interview, personality tests, and the symptom analysis? Explain your hypothesis and substantiate it using instances from your case study. Discuss your results with conclusions and recommendations.

The final version of Forensic Mental Health Professional Individual Assessment Report should contain all the assigned components and the corresponding information and include revisions and improvements based on your feedback from M4 Assignment 2.

  • Synthesize the data and write a reflection statement in 2–3 pages.

In a separate document, address the following:

    • Describe your professional role and relationship with the court and the third party requesting the assessment or evaluation.
    • Explain the hypothesis you have formulated.
    • Explain why you chose the tests for the assessment of the client.
    • Discuss potential ethical dilemmas that might arise in your assessment of the client.
    • Discuss the pertinent multicultural perspectives you considered.
    • Explain how you would prepare yourself to defend your evaluation in the court setting or to relevant third parties. Be sure to support your explanation with professional literature.
    • If you recommended treatment for your client, discuss the evidence-based approaches used with the disorder you diagnosed.
    • Discuss the influence of cultural factors on the assessment process.

Your final deliverables are:

  • A selected case vignette
  • A list of interview and referral questions
  • The assessment template
  • The final assessment report
  • A reflection statement

Your report and reflection statement combined should be approximately 12–15 pages. You are to utilize outside resources in your reflection statement only.

All written assignments and responses should follow APA rules for attributing sources.

Submission Details:

  • By Saturday, July 1, 2017, compile your report and reflection statement in a Microsoft Word document, save it as M5_A2_Lastname_Firstname.doc, and submit it to the M5 Assignment 2 LASA Dropbox.
