Transcript of The Psychology of the simpsons.

after reading this article i wold say this chapter is about personalty. In this article David and Deirdre Kenny discussed the the big 5 factors. The first of the big 5 factors is Extroversion : outgoing, energetic, humorous 2ed.Agreeableness : warm, accepting, trusting 3ed.Conscientiousness : conventional, careful, organized 4th.Neuroticism : stable, well adjusted, calm (indicators of low neuroticism) 5th.openness: independent, creative, adventurous. i this chapter a study is conducted where 13 are to judge the characteristics of twenty character that are all based apron the big 5.the standard approach to the measurement of a person’s personality is for a person to take a personality test. The person is asked a series of questions, and based on his or her answers, a measurement is made as to whether the person has the Big Five factor. These tests are used in a wide variety of settings, among which are: employment, vocational counseling, diagnosis of psychopathology and mate selection. so the big question is How do The Simpsons shake out when it comes to the Big Five? though you cannot ask them you can get viewers to classify the personality's of the Simpsons? this is where the experiment comes into play. The cartoon characters in the Simpson are very complex but yet have many personalities. So after being judged where dose everyone fit and who scored the highest? Extroversion:Krusty, 6.19,Agreeableness Ned Flanders 6.27,Conscientiousness marge at 6.54,neuroticism millhouse at 5.92 and lastly bart at openness with the score of 5.54. this study would be marked as pure assessment because others are rating someone else personalities. This has a higher accuracy rate than personal test because we may then become bias of ourselves. i liked this article because i found that the judges were not bias and only gave true answers.

The cafeteria deep fryer is not a toy.
In this article the author starts off by stating that murphys law proposed (could something go wrong. it will). although somehow murphys law isn't a major chartists in the Simpsons family? this phrase goes along with the phrase of human interaction and technology called human factors.the study interest was with the understanding of human capability's,errors and limitation to design and operation of technology. This study proves to be an essential key in psychology. The author wants to focus on mishaps involving technology or more precisely artifact that were designed by humans for humans. and example of this would be car to machines to nuclear power plants. some human factor professionals are concerned with the understanding of the human capabilities and limitations for the understanding to the design and operation of technological systems Homer’s place of employment, the nuclear power plant. The nuclear power industry has been a consumer of human factors knowledge, as accidents and errors in the operation of such plants have the potential for truly spectacular consequences much more than a flash or a green glow. it could be a truly devastating outcome like chlorophyll. All of these high-profile confluences of physical plant failures and human error.
After i completed this book i would have to say i was satisfied. This book held my interest with is with its knowledge of how people are classified in society. This book also shock me with it classification of people, its journey into the brain and also cognitive psychology. Overall, i would say that i was satisfied with this book because it expanded my knowledge of how people work and behave.I find it interesting how every detail of peoples action can alter the way they behave.
Overall Reaction, whats the book has done for me
My expatiation's for this book were very high including that the Simpson is a childhood classic cartoon that i grew up on. it i was also excited to learn about each of the psychological background of everyone in the Simpson family. even when i was young i was always curious about the Simpsons family and how they managed to stay together through all of there there dis functionalism.i expected to learn about why homer was so dumb, why brat was delinquent and why Lisa was so smart and not effected by her dysfunctional family. so, in overall i would say i had high hopes for this book and was enthusiastic to learn more about the Simpsons family.
In this article the author discusses the marriage of homer and marge Simpson with its increases and is declines. he uses the independence theory to measure the strength of Homer and Marge relationship. His study of marge and homer marriage divulges that there is no such thing as an superb marriage. The author states the characteristics of a perfect family. He believes that life is normal or (Humdrum). independence theory psychologically describes ways to preserve love and emotions in a marriage. the theory started when the thought of a couple could be studied . from what i read it also says that individuals are influenced by each other. This theory allow one to predict weather the couple will stand the test on there level of satisfaction. satisfaction is gratification in a relationship. a balance between good and bad. to begin they must test there satisfaction.then they measure the good stuff and the bad stuff. Once they ran the test on Homer and Marge and they have concluded that they are indeed satisfied with themselves.
For better or for worse.
Stupid brain.
The Psychology
In this section the author discuss each part of the brain. the overall topic is intellectual thinking. the issue in this chapter is how psychical damage to the brain can harm intelligence. this chapter also covers how the different lobes and parts of the brain work together.in this chapter they discuss homer sticking a crayon in his brain. when homer sticks the crayon in his brain it effect his frontal lobe and his parietal lobe. the frontal lobe is in control of behavior and planning. the occipital lobe deals with sight. The cerebellum is the lobe of the brain that has to do with skill and conditioning,The temporal lobe has to do with hearing. cognitive psychology is the study of psychology that we studies how people see,think ,perceive,imagine,remember and act out. I would say that this is the most noticeable brain damage that is done . it is shown through homers quick temper and his anger outrages on Bart. when homer get the crayon removed he finds how you could say a burst of intelligence. this section of the book is what interested me the most. as the days goes on after homer had the crayon removed, he began to notice that the thing he would usually do his brain would advise him not. he had become so fascinated with this new found intelligence that he had began to document daily on what new experiences he had with his brain. before homer couldn't remember small task information like take the trash out. you would ofter find homer becoming distracted and wandering off and doing something completely different. homers brain was opening doors in parts of his brain that he had never used before. days had gone buy and homers interest grew ever grater than before that he even enrolled himself into Springfield's community college. after awhile homer had become highly intelligent. you could tell he had gained because he had stopped misspelling simple words and he had gained a vast vocabulary. eventually homer had grew broad of his new intelligence because he says it was no fun. so homer has the idea to stick the crayon back int his brain . once done homers pitiful grammar returns. it get to the point where hid daughter Lisa has to log for him.
