Cognitive view writing is a very simplified and descriptive writing that paints a picture and allows the person reading it to comprehend and understand what they are reading.

I recently wrote a brochure to hand out to my employees here at UPS on heat related injuries. I wrote simple steps to prevent getting overheated, and the dangers of what could happen if proper measures were not taken. I gave examples and illustrations that would make the employees stop and think about what to do as they are getting hot, and before they get over heated and tragedy occurs. Some examples of this would be proper amounts of water drank daily, and proper amounts of water drank while working in the heat. I explained how caffeinated drinks, sugary foods, and some medications will dehydrate the body, which can lead to heat exertion, heat stroke, or even death. I added many pictures to illustrate proper hydrating methods, and pictures showing foods and drinks that can quickly dehydrate a person. I also explained and illustrated what to do in case a fellow employee showed signs of heat exertion, or stroke. After brochure is read and explained each employee must take, and pass a test at 100 percent. Each employee must also verbally explain to me proper methods to helping a fellow employee that shows signs of heat distress.

I have each employee to take the test to make sure each and every employee not only understands, but also remembers what they have read. The conclusion to this is to ensure each and every one of my employees are not only safe from preventable dangers, but to help a fellow employee who may be in distress. This will help keep our work place a safer place to work.…...

Profile

...English 134 24 January 2012 The Man Behind the Camo, by Kelly McBride, is a profile that focuses on the author’s younger brother, Scott, and his experiences with the concept of manhood. McBride goes about this by describing past events like childhood traditions and activities that she shared with Scott, and then providing her own commentary and thoughts on the matter. McBride’s detailed recounting of her personal experiences helps make this piece a well-written profile because it effectively gives the reader insight into Scott’s childhood as well as their relationship as brother and sister. This firsthand source (memories written onto paper) helps the reader to feel as if they were really there, and makes them more aware of what the actual events were like and how they helped McBride come to the conclusions that she did about Scott and masculinity. The author uses both quotes and detailed imagery to portray her brother in this profile, a combination that both appeals to the senses and works very well to describe events. McBride uses quotes to emphasize or confirm the memory that she is currently describing, which helps to lend the reader a hand and give them a real example of the subject while helping to align the author’s train of thought and the story. For example, when McBride is recalling Scott’s first venture into manhood in the form of football she quotes him saying “’All of my friends were doing it that year. Football is just kind of the ‘guy’ thing to......

Personality Profile

...CSU Word count: 638 In an effort to better understand myself and why I make some of the choices in my life, I have taken two personality profile questionnaires online; the first was one recommended by my professor, called Keirsey Character Sorter, the second was of choosing and that led me to Humanmetrics Jung Typology Test. After careful dissection of the results I found that even though some of the findings were similar, the two tests painted different pictures of my personality. I will contrast and attempt to compare both examinations, showing why I believe the Keiser test is a more accurate description of my personality and character. I took both tests within one day of each other, to avoid an influence from one test on the other. After completion of the Keirsey test, I found the results to be surprisingly accurate, especially its description of the way my type makes decisions and view important choices. As for the Jung Typology test, I found it to be only accurate in generalities; the same way a daily horoscope found in the back of a newspaper would be. Both tests consisted of more than 60 questions with only two possible answers, all of which I answered with an open mind and honesty. The Keirsey test described my personality as a Rational Inventor or (ENTP), in it I found deep connection with its key characteristics, specially the first paragraph where it describes how this type of personality “is always trying to build a better mouse trap”(Keirsey, n.d., para1)....

Writing a Profile: My Friend Jenna

...Profile. I arrive on floor twenty-one; fifteen floors above my own. The elevator doors glide open, and I am greeted by a large poster of a friendly looking yellow sponge and a pink starfish. I walk out of the elevator and proceed to my right. My interviewee’s room number was 2123, and I struggled to find it at first. I walk the perimeter of the floor, and discover it in the corner. It was just a plain brown door; there were no name markers on it. I hoped she had given me the right room number. I knock with force three times, and wait patiently. After about ten quick seconds, the door flies open and startles me a little. “Hey! Sorry my room is a little bit messy, I was gone all weekend, and I got back not too long ago” Jennah says. I explain to her that I totally understand, as I was gone all weekend too. I look past her a little bit as I am entering her dorm room. It is a little bit plain, and not equipped with much. As I look to my left at her bed, I do notice something that catches my interest: a Hello Kitty bed comforter. “No way! Jennah, I adore your comforter” I say excitedly. “Hello Kitty is the bomb” she agrees. I am not surprised at the fact that she has a comforter with a character popular among young elementary-aged girls. For the week that I’ve known her, she seemed very free-spirited, and young at heart. I observe her outfit and see something I, for some reason, did not notice when I first entered. She was wearing a Hello Kitty t-shirt. Accommodating......

Leader Profile

...LEADER PROFILE Leader Profile 1 The person who has influenced me the most in my life is my mentor, Stanley (Stan) King, CPA. He is the reason why I am a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) today. I have known him all of my life and have admired him as long as I can remember. Stan is known as a man of great integrity and credibility. In the Leadership Challenge book1, it discusses what people look most for in a leader is someone who is honest, forward-looking, inspiring and competent. Stan has all of these qualities and characteristics which is why he is well respected among his peers, subordinates and those who know him. I feel as though Stan has both types of leadership characteristics; transitional and transformational. Stan is the type of person who helps others by creating options, opportunities, building commitment and facilitating relationships. I think that he has a charismatic way of inspiring others to achieve and succeed. He treats others with respect regardless of their position. He is very confident in his own abilities and not afraid when to let people know he does not know the answer. If he does not know the answer, he will try find it let you know about it and provide the resource for your records. This is a form of credibility and developing competence not only for himself but for others as well. As a leader, below are the areas in the leadership scorecard that I believe Stan rates: 1 Kouzes, J. & Posner, B. (2008). The leadership challenge (4th......

Profile of a Person

...The purpose of introducing Major Project B: Profile of a Person was to inform my audience about Toby Bush and the 20 years he spent in the United States Air Force. My main focus was to get a good understanding of his thoughts and feelings so that I could have that same effect of my audience when they read it. Considering the phases I went through, they all gave me an opportunity to go deeper into my main point. When planning and preparing to start my interview I had a goal that was to ask all the right questions without offending or asking for too much. I first made a list of questions based on what I wanted to know and what I felt was important for my audience to know. The interview went well and I was very observant so that I could give my profile a setting. Later, I did background research on the bases Toby traveled to and also the events happening at the time. This helped me better include my thoughts and if asked any questions, I have information to share. Proposing a draft and then receiving and giving feedback was most important and helpful to me because I’m very concerned when it comes to doing things the right way and also getting a passing grade. I also enjoy the constructive criticism and I’m always open for improvement. While developing this project I would say it took a lot of thinking. I say this because I had to basically speak for others, considering all types of things. Above all I spoke for Toby. I also spoke for the customers by describing the great......

This neighborhood needs to be respected and protected in order for people to thrive and carry-on with their everyday lives. My community is made up families raising their children and just going with everyday life. We take pride in living for our children. Sports and education is big in the community, during school and during the summer months as well. When the adults are not working they take their leisure time going to basketball games on Friday nights during the fall or baseball games during the summer. Also during the summer months my community has a farmers market. The farmers market supports local farmers and also brings other small businesses out. The farmers market always brings out the community and brings people together. It is also a great way to contribute to small businesses and give back. Some other wonderful, fun things we have during the summer months that brings the community together are car shows, a day in the park and the jubilee. A reason we can have these things is because of the workforce in the community. The workforce ranges from industry to clerical to fast food to medical. We are very diverse in what needs to be done. The community used to be mostly industrial but a lot of factories were shutdown due to the economy. The community still has a couple of bigger industrial factories that are in production but...

Career Profile

...method, but while viewing the results I do recall the impression it left on me. According to my results, I was assigned conventional, social, and realistic aptitudes. I agree with this assessment; the description seemed to describe the needs in my current career. According to the profile, “conventional occupations frequently involve following set procedures and routines” (University of Phoenix, 2014). In my role as a trainer and Continuous Improvement, this was my job description exactly. The Social Aspect perfectly aligns with my strong communication skills and mentoring roles I have adopted with many employees. The last of the profile indicated ‘realistic’ aptitude, which lends itself to “practical, hands-on problems and solutions” (University of Phoenix, 2014) which is also the goal of Lean Six Sigma and Continuous Improvement. I cannot say I agreed with the career matches, but in all other aspects, the profile was correct. The Career Plan Building Activity: Competencies was completed a while ago, and I cannot recall the questions it uses to assess to competencies. The report does not provide detail, but I can comment on the results I have available. The highest competency listed was writing, followed by applying expertise, adapting to change, researching, logical thinking and cooperating. I am pleased to see research and logical thinking were listed in my skill set. In my opinion, these core competencies are key to applying critical thinking when writing or......

He was the most normal kid aside from the ADD making homework a dreadful thing in our house. His social life however was the main reason he went to school, he use to always get yelled at for talking while the teacher was taking. Matthew Alexander Watson was always a big talker even as a little boy, after he said his first words we couldn’t get him to stop. Matthew was born in New Jersey to my parents John and Kim Watson. He was then taken home to there little town house where he was raised until I came along 4 years later and my parents moved to a bigger house, in a cul-de-sac right on top of a hill with a park right at the bottom where all the kids played. Matthew being a very outgoing kid would go play basketball with the kids at the court near the park when he was 10. It wasn’t until that year when my dad got a new job and was relocated to Florida.

Profile Report

This paper will compare and contrast the responses of the interviewee with myself concerning the learning and memory processes, the Myer’s Briggs test and personality, attitudes, and motivations providing a profile report of both. The person I interviewed is a 26-year-old, white (Italian/Scotch/Irish) female. The highest education level she has reached is a high school diploma. She is currently employed full-time, married, with one child. The learning and memory process: The interviewee remembers information more accurately if she observes the behavior being performed rather than reading how the behavior is performed. For example, if she were told to paint a picture by following directions by observing someone or reading them, she would remember better by observing someone painting a picture than by reading the directions on how to do it. She paints a better mental picture by seeing something done. ......
