  • Blog Post : Are You Experiencing Poor Job Satisfaction?
    Are you happy with your job? You may have been asked this question before--by your friends, your family, and maybe even your employer--but have you ever really thought about the answer? If you are like many people, you are probably tempted to automatically reach for a cliché phrase as your answer, something like "Well, is anyone really happy with their job?" This very common answer reveals something about job satisfaction that many employers and employees are unwilling to admit: that people expect to be unsatisfied with their jobs. While some employers--and employees--may see job satisfaction as a pipe dream, an increasing number of studies and research on the topic of job satisfaction have shown that it can have a significant influence on your overall work performance... and even your life outside of work.
  • Blog Post : 5 Common Types of Organizational Citizenship Behavior
    What is Organizational Citizenship Behavior? Organizational citizenship behavior is the technical psychological term for what can be simply defined as the compilation of individual behaviors in a group setting. Organizational citizenship behavior was first defined by Dennis Organ in 1988 as "an individual behavior which is not rewarded by a formal reward system ... but that, when combined with the same behavior in a group, results in effectiveness." In the business world, organizational citizenship behavior has been linked to work productivity, employee effectiveness, and other factors which can impact a business in the short or long term. Common examples of business organizational citizenship behavior occur when employees are grouped together, which may occur on a regular basis or a part of a special or temporary assignment. For example, employees in the marketing department will display organizational citizenship behavior on a regular basis because of they are co-workers in the same department; employees who are put together for a temporary work assignment will also display organizational citizenship behavior, albeit on a temporary basis.

  • Blog Post : The Effect of Stress on Memory
    The effects of stress on memory are well-studied and well-recorded. At the most basic level, the main effect that stress has on memory impacts the brain's ability to both encode information and retrieve information. When a person experiences stress, their body releases stress hormones into the blood streams; it is these hormones which have an impact on the brain and can influence a person's ability to remember information through encoding and retrieval disruption. The most well-known stress hormone which negatively affects memory is Glucocorticoids--more commonly known as cortisol. Cortisol disrupts the ability of the hippocampus to encode new information and retrieve existing information by diverting the glucose levels in the hippocampus to surrounding muscles, which deprives the hippocampus of necessary energy it needs to perform regular memory functions. The areas of the brain which are usually the most affected by stress are the hippocampus, the prefrontal cortex, and the amygdala.
  • Blog Post : Retail Jobs and Job Satisfaction
    Are certain jobs more prone to poor job satisfaction than others?

  • Blog Post : Pregnancy and Memory Loss
    Does pregnancy cause memory loss? It is not unusual of expecting mothers to complain of forgetfulness; however, their complaint of forgetfulness is usually relegated to a result of the stress which is so natural to women who are expecting a child. Stress, of course, has been proven to affect memory and cause forgetfulness—or memory loss—especially when experienced for a longer period of time. And since pregnancy lasts for about nine months on average, naturally this ongoing stress could affect the memory of a woman who is pregnant. Other times, forgetfulness in pregnant woman is attributed to the fact that they are likely to be distracted because of their newfound focus on the health and welfare of their child. However, could these complaints of memory loss during pregnancy be more than just a result of pregnancy-related stress or worry about their child?
  • Blog Post : Learning in Infants
    Do infants learn? The question may catch some people, even parents, by surprise. Although it is common to acknowledge that children are able to learn—and in fact, are sent to school to learn—it is lesson common to think about infants as capable of learning. However, infants are able to learn just as older children are able to learn. What they learn, how fast they learn it, and how they use that knowledge is vastly different than what older children learn, however. For example, while a seven year old child might be starting their first history lessons in school; an eight month old infant is hardly going to be able to recite the names of the kings of England. This does not mean that the eight month old infant is incapable of learning, just that what they learn—and how they use that learning—is different.
  • Blog Post : Distance Education
    Distanceeducation is defined as a broad system of education which delivers instruction and education to students who are not physically present as they would be in a traditional classroom setting. Distance education, sometimes referred as distance learning, is a way for students to be instructed through non-traditional means while they are not actually present in front of an instructor in a classroom. Distance education, then, is a way to provide access to learning for students when the source of the information--such as the teacher--and the students are not connected due to factors such as distance and time. Some types of distance education require the student's presence in a physical location for certain reasons, such as taking examinations or getting together with groups for projects--these types of distance education are usually referred to as "blended education," since they do require the student to bridge the disconnect between themselves and their instructor in what is usually atraditional classroom setting.

  • Blog Post : The consequences of organizational citizenship in business
    Organizational citizenship behavior is defined as behavior in a workplace environment which benefits the workplace while not being directly required or recognized by a formal reward system. Instead, organizational citizenship behavior is the product of an instilled sense of community and citizenship in the workplace, an individual’s personality, and their personal decision making. Organizational citizenship behavior is referred to as “citizenship” behavior because the behavior which is defined under this category is intended to benefit a company and, more importantly, benefit the other individuals who are involved in the work life of the person exhibiting organizational citizenship behavior. These behaviors are not necessary or critical in order to perform a job; however, they can still enhance work performance and create a positive and more productive work environment.

  • Blog Post : The Psychology Behind “The Deal”
    Business is about making money—so why is it that so many businesses have seemingly constant “great deals,” “bargain bin deals,” and “extreme price-cut deals”? Because, more often than not, these seemingly too-good-to-be-true deals are actually benefiting the business, not the consumer. Every year, countless numbers of businesses take advantage of the psychological effect that “the deal” has on consumers. This “deal” effect can actually influence people into spending more money and into spending money that they otherwise would never have spent were it not for the psychological pull that a good deal has on people’s minds.

  • Blog Post : The psychological signs of suicide
    Suicide is defined as the act of an individual killing themselves. Suicide is a complex action which is often the result of a myriad of different factors. Personal experiences, mental health, relationship problems, and a host of other factors can all lead someone into feeling that suicide is a necessary, acceptable, or practical response to their experiences. There is no one reason for committing suicide, but the fact remains that suicide is an action which can affect not only the person who has chosen to kill themselves but that individual’s friends and family, who are often left to handle the complex psychological trauma which often occurs after someone commits suicide.
  • Blog Post : Symptoms of a major depressive episode
    A major depressive episode is defined as an episode during which a person is shown to be exhibiting symptoms of major depressive disorder while not necessarily exhibiting all of the symptoms of major depressive disorder itself. Someone who is experiencing a major depressive episode is not always able to be diagnosed with major depressive disorder, although it is common for people who experience these depressive episodes to have a depression diagnosis. Major depressive disorder, which is also known as clinical depression or clinical depression, refers to a mental disorder which is characterized by frequent episodes of low mood, low self-esteem, and other negative emotions and symptoms which can lead to an overall feeling of depression. People with major depressive disorder will also experience major depressive episodes on a recurrent basis.
  • Blog Post : The Top Three Principles of Neuro linguistic programming
    Neuro linguistic programming is defined as a particular approach most often used in psychotherapy forms of communication, and in the improvement of personal and interpersonal development. The basis of neuro linguistic programming is that the connection between neurological processing in the brain and behavioral patterns allows for people to develop themselves and influence those around them through communication that takes advantage of these neurological processes. Neuro linguistic programming can take many forms; the overall umbrella of neurolinguistic programming includes methods and techniques which can be used during hypnotherapy, regular psychotherapy, retail or business marketing, regular interpersonal communication, as well as self-improvement, and so on. Neurolinguistic programming is typically considered to be a pseudoscience by those in the scientific community because many of its methods and techniques are not based on hard scientific fact but on subjective data and the study of overall social and personal traits--for example, one of the bases for the Milton Model, a common neuro linguistic programming model, involves taking advantage of the conscious mind's distraction in order to tap into the unconscious mind. Although this method does not have any strict scientific basis, it was developed after research and study on social and behavioral patterns.
