What is self-efficacy?
Question
Updated 3/7/2011 6:28:21 AM
1 Answer/Comment
Self-efficacy has been defined in a variety of ways: as the belief that one is capable of performing in a certain manner to attain certain goals,[1] as a person’s belief about their capabilities to produce designated levels of performance that exercise influence over events that affect their lives.[2] It is a belief that one has the capabilities to execute the courses of actions required to manage prospective situations. It has been described in other ways as the concept has evolved in the literature and in society: as the sense of belief that one’s actions have an effect on the environment;[3] as a person’s judgment of his or her capabilities based on mastery criteria; a sense of a person’s competence within a specific framework, focusing on the person’s assessment of their abilities to perform specific tasks in relation to goals and standards rather than in comparison with others’ capabilities. Additionally, it builds on personal past experiences of mastery.[4] The idea of self-efficacy is one of the center points in positive psychology; this branch of psychology focuses on factors that create a meaning for individuals. It is believed that our personalized ideas of self-efficacy affect our social interactions in almost every way. Understanding how to foster the development of self-efficacy is a vitally important goal for positive psychology because it can lead to living a more productive and happy life.

Do you think some personality types are naturally better at receiving criticism than others?
Weegy: Yes, some people treat criticism as a challenge and motivator for them to improve User: What type of criticism as a challenging and motivating way could youu give a person? Weegy: 1. CONSUMERIST - Recommendations to a consumer. For example, whether or not to see a movie based on whether the reviewer liked it. [ Usually the critic is an expert—the knowledgeable film reviewer for a newspaper—or conducts some type of research that might help the consumer make a decision. 2. STRUCTURALIST - Art, television, films, books, etc. reviewed or criticized from a viewpoint of a work's structure, i.e. did a movie have a good opening, rising action, a good climax, and a good ending. How was a work edited or put together. Was a painting composed well? 3. POLITICAL - What are the political implications of a work of art (popular or fine art, pop or high culture)? A political criticism of Oliver Stone's “JFK” would deal with the film’s conspiracy theory and the past and current political ramifica­tions of the movie. 4. ECONOMIC - What are the economic implications of a work of art? An economic criticism of “Avatar” might deal with how much money the movie made and how ticket pricing affected gross. 5. MARXIST - A criticism from the viewpoint of class struggle in general, and, often, more specifically how the capitalist class or corporations are trying to impose their values (bad values) on the worker class or common people (good values). A critic who is a Marxist is not necessarily a communist. 6. ETHICAL – A criticism of a work of art or journalistic/news content from an ethical point of view. Did the work or content being criticized follow common ethical values of professional codes, such as journalistic codes of ethics (SPJ, RTNDA, ASME, e.g.) and did it follow one of several ethical principles (Aristotle, Kant, Mills, Rawls, e.g.). 7. THE AUTEUR THEORY - A criticism, usually of films, from the view that the director is the author, or ... (More)

Receiving Criticism
Weegy: Receiving criticism with confidence Allow yourself to learn from criticism directed at you. Even if it is invalid, respond diplomatically. [ Conclusion of a series on personal and personnel judgments in the lab. Mark Twain said, "I like criticism, but it must be my way." Most laboratorians take Twain a step further: They do not like criticism, and they never divulge what their way is. For the vast majority of people, criticism has a negative connotation. Consequently, it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. If you hate criticism and avoid it even when constructive, you make avoidable mistakes and cause even more disapproval. If you change your mind-set about criticism, however, and view it as either neutral or positive, it will have a neutral--or even positive--result for you. To help you change your mental set, let's define criticism as "somebody's opinion of a situation, action, or person that he or she wants to share with you." This is a neutral definition that doesn't imply the opinion is correct, is the only one, or must be acted upon. If you can accept this definition, you are half way to changing your view of criticism. This will lead you to be more effective in handling it. The next step is to recognize the many different ways of interpreting judgments. If you seek more than one interpretation of what someone said, you will have more options for reacting to it. Choose the interpretation to which you will respond. Some will build your confidence, others may put you on a growth track, and still others may key you into an insight about the politics of the organization--who is allied with whom. Using this multiple interpretation approach, you may eventually be able to say, as actress Helen Hayes did, "I like criticism. It's the only way to grow." * Criticism analysis guidelines. Here are several different ways to evaluate criticism: * Analyze source. Do you respect the critic? Is your critic credible? What might be the motivation? Is the ... (More)

Bodily Kinesthetic Intelligence
Question
Not Answered
Updated 3/7/2011 6:49:33 PM
1 Answer/Comment
The core elements of the bodily-kinesthetic intelligence are control of one's bodily motions and capacity to handle objects skillfully (206). Gardner elaborates to say that this intelligence also includes a sense of timing, a clear sense of the goal of a physical action, along with the ability to train responses so they become like reflexes. Along with these, you often find a high degree of fine-motor control and a gift for using whole body motions.

These abilities may not seem very impressive, at first glance. Bodily intelligence is not widely appreciated in our culture. Calling it an "intelligence" is almost startling, though less so after Gardner has called upon Marcel Marceau, athletes, actors, inventors, and dancers to make his case for a bodily intelligenc]
