Each and everyday we get up in the morning and go through our daily routines. We go through all the motions we usually go through, sometimes faster sometimes slower. We also go to school, work, some of us even volunteer. While we are at work or at school we are around people whether it be our co-workers or our classmates. We all play a role and have our own scripts. Think of us as actors on a great stage. This is what Erving Goffman defined as the presentation of self. A persons efforts to create specific impressions in the minds of others. Think about it, we do this every day! There are many elements of presentation of self that include Performances, Nonverbal Communication, Gender and Performances, Idealization, and Embarrassment and Tact. Regardless of who you are you have experienced these elements. For example, a presidential candidate has to dress very presentably. They must look respect but also look like their apart of the people and be relatable. They should have a strong voice that will capture your attention. In photos they should look strong and determined which gives his people faith and hope. Their demeanor should show restrictions such as putting their feet on the table at functions or swearing at their opponent at debates. They must look approachable and not like someone who you wouldn't stop and talk to while walking down the street. They must show care and compassion for their people and treat them they way that they should be treated. They must be able to…

This Road We Call Life
This Road We call Life
Boy Meets World had so many great things going for it. It taught children life lessons without them having to learn the hard way and there being a possibility of ruining their lives forever. The show talked about real issues going on in the world, unlike many other television shows geared toward the same audience. The show even became emotional at times. Some people in the show were…
house is a hard decision to make. Especially when it’s not just a bargain for merchandises, it’s the place where we live. In order to get a ideal house, I would want to know about the surrounding area, the flexibility of space using, and the price of the house.
First of all, quality and convenience of the neighborhood is essential for me. Since the house will likely be the habitat for life time long, easily accessible supermarkets and a friendly neighborhood would be mandatory for the house. Let’s…
Describe the emergence of forensic and criminal psychology as we know it today.
Forensic and criminal psychology is a study of the relationships between psychology and the law. The Concise Oxford English Dictionary (2011) defines ‘Forensic’ as “Of, used in, courts of law”. Criminal psychology primarily focuses on the criminals reasons for committing a crime.
The origins of this field began in the mid-18th century. It has evolved over years of studying, research and analysis to the modern day established…
Descriptive writing: City centre!
Hiss went the pink sizzling hot dogs as they landed onto the boiling hot grill beginning to turn a light brown. The warming sensation drifted up everyone’s small nostrils like a colourful kite drifting up into the day time sky. Biting into the deliciously refreshing hot dog the amazing feeling of it fulfilling our hunger was sensational! It was like it danced around in our stomachs like a ballet dancer.
However the loud noises of the tiny children screaming…
Never measure your life by people who don’t know Christ.
When I prepared to write this to you I was a bit dismayed because of some personal issues I was facing and needed a word from the Lord. Have you ever wondered I mean just sometimes why you the child of the king need go through so much while others who could care less about the Most High seem to be on easy street or even the hypocrites those who are saved on Sunday and hellish on Monday get away with so much? Psalm 73:2-3 reads like this:…
AS we know, the knowledge of our strengths can contribute to our
successes.After finished the almost200 questions research on Strengths
finder website,the report lists my top five strengths and analyzes these
positive issues, including Input, Context, Intellection
and Relater. I did the research very hurry but the results are very
accurate. I think these five topics are quiet fit with me, especially the
first one. However, there still are some significant questions; for
What We Know and What We Believe
Have you ever wondered why things are the way they are. I have often asked myself this same question numerous times. It wasn’t until I took a philosophy class; I started to develop thought and try to understand the world. A philosopher that stuck out to me the most during the course was Plato. Plato was a western philosopher, who studied philosophy in 427-347 B.C. He was a good friend and admirer of the great philosopher Socrates (Melchert 119). In this paper,…

Radio frequency identification, also known as RFID, is a breakthrough in technology and could just be the next big step in surveillance. Yet, how far is one willing to go to be sure that all of their past history is accurate? This sounds a little like George Orwell’s 1984; a chip inserted into one’s skin, embedded with data that can be transferred to a reading…
