Liar's Poker Organizational Behavior Term Paper

… Liar's Poker

The Salomon Brothers and Michael Lewis' Liar's Poker: An Inside Look at Organizational Structure and Culture

The recent economic downturn that the world experienced -- and is still experiencing, in many parts of the world and indeed globally, according to many theorists -- has led to renewed reflections as to the regulation of and watchfulness over financial markets and attempts at profiteering from risky investments that could destabilize major organizations in the financial and banking industries. The use of mortgage-backed securities as places in which to invest and grow wealth, for example, was allowed to occur in a period of rampant deregulation and massive speculation in the real estate industry and he making of home loans by a variety of banking institutions. The…. [read more]

Spot a Liar, a Presentation Essay

… Additionally, Meyers (2011) maintains that a change in vocal tone, body positioning, and head shaking and shoulder shrugging are also strong indicators of lying. Meyers (2011) places special emphasis on duping delight, or the uncontrollable instinct that causes a liar to smile when they believe they have gotten away with his or her deception. Meyers (2011) demonstrates how duping delight operates through two examples: one of a woman who murdered her children and claimed that they were killed by a stranger who attacked them, and a genuinely grieving mother, Erin Runnion, whose daughter was violently murdered by Alejandro Avila in 2002. Meyers (2011) maintains that although the presence of a single type of deceptive body language does not indicate an individual is a liar, the…. [read more]

Sociopath or Psychopath Psychology Term Paper

… Family nurture does play a vital role. In addition to the family environment, the other very strong social force is the culture from which a person belongs to. Researches have pointed out that the incidence of psychopath and sociopath individuals is much higher in United States of America than in Japan. The reasons of these varying percentages of psychopaths and sociopaths are quite contingent on the culture they are part of. In Japanese culture, the family members share a tight bond with each other and there is lot of love and respect for one another. In contrary, higher percentages of American family consists of single parents who raise their kids alone. The negative influence of being part of a single parent family does influence the….

Ethical Behavior of a Person Essay

… There was no way to logically argue that what happened was an honest mistake. It might have been plausible that one person's account could go missing, but it was completely implausible that everyone's accounts could disappear and Madoff would not have been aware of it while it was taking place. There was no way to explain what took place, other than through unethical behavior.

So, the question becomes what happened with Bernie Madoff and with Enron? Why did they do what they did? Surely, Madoff as well as Enron executives knew what they were doing was wrong. They were taking people's money and saying that they were doing good things with it, but ultimately they were spending it and losing it and hoping no one…. [read more]

Political Scandals in Canada Essay

… Meanwhile Seaton also blasts the media for the style in which the media interviews politicians. "Most broadcast interviews of politicians take the form of attempting to make them pledge promises, followed by attempting to reveal them as liars" (Seaton, 175).

What Seaton also mentions in her essay -- which is very important to researchers looking into improper sexual adventures of politicians -- is that the media used to avoid covering sexual trysts that they new about. The liaisons that John Kennedy (as president) had with Marilyn Monroe, for example, were never published albeit many in the mainstream media knew about it. Perhaps they didn't want to be excluded from interviews with Kennedy, but whatever the reason, Kennedy got a pass from the media. Lyndon Johnson,…. [read more]

Controlling Our Emotions? Emotional Literacy Research Paper

… g., Ekman & Friesen, 1975; Nowicki & Mitchell, 1998; Scherer, Banse, & Wallbott, 2001). When focused on the self, this dimension is related to greater emotional awareness (Lane, Quinlan, Schwartz, Walker, & Zeitlin, 1990), lower alexithymia (Apfel & Sifneos, 1979), and less ambivalence about emotional expressivity (King, 1998; King & Emmons, 1990). When focused on other people, this dimension encompasses what is meant by affect sensitivity (Campbell, Kagan, & Krathwohl, 1971), affect-receiving ability (Buck, 1976) and nonverbal sensitivity (Rosenthal, Hall, DiMatteo, Rogers, & Archer, 1979).

Use of emotion to facilitate thought

B.F. Skinner: Shaper or Destroyer? Term Paper

… B.F. Skinner: Shaper or Destroyer?

This paper promotes two points from James' statement, "there is no worse lie than a truth misunderstood by those who hear it," and "reasonable arguments...are folly when... dealing with human crocodiles and boa-constrictors." (Columbia, 1996) One, despite this and other challenges to misinterpretations and/or lies, an individual will basically believe what he/she chooses to believe. Two, when defending a position and/or challenging a lie, one needs to consider the source of those promoting lies and/or misinterpretations, whether it be from the heart of human crocodiles or boa-constrictors or from a human who has not yet accepted the fact that he/she has misunderstood.

One erroneous contention claims that Skinner "raised one of his daughters in a box and that she later…. [read more]

Biblical Terms Used for Counseling Term Paper

… Biblical Terms Used for Counseling

There is much debate and contention about secular as opposed to religious approaches to counseling - which is in effect a reflection of the secular / religious divide in contemporary culture. However, an analysis of the terms and concepts found in the Biblical texts showed evidence of a great deal of similarity and concurrence with contemporary counseling terminology. This study examines a few central terms in the light of Biblical meaning as well as the relevance of these terms in a contemporary therapeutic and counseling environment. The result of this analysis indicates the ways in which Biblical concepts enrich and expand the meaning and effectiveness of modern counseling. The analysis of the specific words tends to concur with Olsen's (1997)…. [read more]

On the other hand her boyfriend tries to convince her that she is not insane and the girls that she has made friends with while in the institution are not even her friends.

Leadership Moment Summary

Treasuries trader, Paul Mozer, was a known serial abuser of federal auction rules, corporate policies at Salamon, as well as abuse of customer trust. Upon discovery of these facts, the company's chairman and chief executive officer, John Gutfreund, had numerous immediate decisions to make:

How was he going to discipline Mozer, one of the company's supposed superstars?

What was he going to do to fully understand the full scope of Mozer's fraud and abuse?

Gail Godwin's "Dream Children Essay

… 499). James claims that "even things I did well got on her nerves," (p. 500). Nothing he did could make his mother happy. When he did not cry at the funeral, likely because James was in shock, she scolded him. Then when James finally did show tears, his mother was only "willing to accept them because I had staged them for her benefit," (p. 500). His mother's narcissism creates an unbridgeable gap between the two. Similarly, Mrs. McNair notes the gap between she and her husband. "Mutual sorrow" hung "like a sword between them," (p. 242).

James and Mrs. McNair are both sensitive characters, for whom death caused a fragmentation of self and a need to escape. James uses lies to escape. Mrs. McNair also…. [read more]

Detecting Deception From Nonverbal Cues Research Proposal

… Detecting Deception

The Detection of Deliberate Concealment of Intentions and Deception

Psychology professor Paul Ekman pioneered the use of facial expression recognition for the purpose of detecting deliberate deception. According to a large volume of work by Ekman dating back to 1974 (Ekman, 2001; 2003) as well as collaborative work in conjunction with O'Sullivan and Frank (1999; 1991), human facial expressions are reliable indicators of deliberate deceptive behavior. The potential value of practical security applications of Ekman's principles and techniques in the contemporary climate of global terrorism and counterterrorism efforts is difficult to overestimate, particularly in light of contemporaneous evidence by Ekman, O'Sullivan, & Frank (1991), DePaulo, Lindsay, & Malone, et al. (2003), and numerous others reported in scientific literature (Stanovich, 2007) conclusively establishing the…. [read more]

Post War German Film Term Paper

… National Socialism in Cinema -- putting the unspeakable into cinematic language

One of the problems of depicting complex historical phenomena like the Holocaust in cinema is that film is the art of the particular, rather than the general. In other words, films, at least fictional films (and even most documentaries) cannot show the broad sweep of history, or go back to the very beginnings of a country's history to show how political and economic events conspired to create a mass tragedy. At best, films can only show a part of life, and cast light onto a small sliver of history. The German films "Germany, Pale Mother" (1979) and "The Murderers are Among Us" (1946) do so successfully, raising questions about how Germany's horrific past haunts…. [read more]

Lying Shakespeare's Historical Plays, Richard III Term Paper

… Lying

Shakespeare's historical plays, Richard III and Henry IV are both centered around very important political figures- Richard III and Henry IV. The plays have as characters two of the most famous villains in Shakespeare's theatre: Richard III, formerly the Duke of Gloucester, and Falstaff, prince Hal's friend. Both characters are known for their extreme lack of morality, although they are very different in other ways: Richard III is Shakespeare's absolute villain- a duke who, driven by his immeasurable ambition, commits a great number of crimes so as to obtain the crown of the kingdom. Falstaff, on the other hand, is more like a jester, known for his great witticism, but at the same time, a great dissembler who always lies, steals or cheats on…. [read more]

Ethics in Law Enforcement Essay

… The "Law Enforcement Code of Ethics" was created by the Peace Officers' Association of the State of California in 1956, and has generally be adopted and used by a number of law enforcement agencies.

In the first paragraph, the officer is sworn to "…protect the innocent against deception" and to protect the "weak against oppression or intimidation" (Riverside Sheriff, CA). Protecting the innocent "against deception" is ironic because police use deception as a commonly, court-approved strategy, and "intimidation" is part of the everyday process of interviewing and interrogating. In the second paragraph, the officer is pledging to be "honest in thought and deed in both my personal and official life," and obviously deceiving suspects is not honest. The third paragraph reminds officers to enforce the…. [read more]

Lie Detection: Recent Research Term Paper

… Likewise, later research studies demonstrated that many of the students actually did reach the grade-point-average goals that they had outlined in their "exaggerations/lies" making a stronger case for the fact that these mistruths should not exactly be treated as such, but should be viewed more correctly as exaggerations and desired aspirations.

However, such a treatment just mitigates the dishonesty. Viewing these students' lies in this fashion just softens the disturbing results that the researchers found. It's entirely possible that lying makes people feel more relaxed; some people might even enjoy lying. It's also possible that an individual's biological reaction to lying might be entirely dependent on what he or she is lying about. For example, lying about things related to careers goals might be easier…. [read more]

Business Society and Corporate Values Essay

… Case 18 - American Red Cross (ARC)

The organizational structure and compensation at ARC has not had a strong enough impact on fostering ethical behavior among chief executives there. There's not enough transparency; it's far too easy for corruption to take over and there's too much compensation available for top executives, making a culture of greed far too easy to takeover. For instance a story on the ARC developed by CBS lists the following problems as indicative of a flawed organizational structure and compensation: "the fundraiser in Louisiana caught padding her own bank account with donations; the manager in Pennsylvania who embezzled to support her own crack cocaine habit; and the executive in Maryland who forged signatures on purchase orders meant for disaster victims" (Ferrell….

Holden Caulfield's Narcissistic Personality Disorder Research Paper

… Salinger describes Holden's narcissism in this quote: "The reason he fixed himself up to look good was because he was madly in love with himself" (Salinger 27). Holden is quite bold in announcing his own sexual attractiveness at several times through out the novel. He boasts, "I am quite sexy" (54) and that he is "probably the biggest sex maniac you ever saw" (62). These statements are a thinly veiled, narcissistic attempt to convince the audience of his sexual prowess, but this prevents Holden from expressing his true feelings, which are doubtful of his abilities.

A significant trait of narcissistic personality disorder is the habit of sabotaging relationships out of fear of intimacy (Twenge and Campbell 19). When Holden is with Sally Hayes, he starts…. [read more]

Should Patricia Dunn Have Been Forced to Resign Essay

… Patricia Dunn should not have been forced to resign. Her role as Chairman of the Board was to oversee the governance of the company, and assist with the selection of the CEO. Further to this, Dunn was to act as an agent of the shareholders, to protect their interests. The interests of the shareholders, and by extension the interests of the board and the managers at the company, are generally to seek profit, in order that the investors receive a return on their investment that is roughly commensurate with the risk they are taking as owners of the company (Friedman, 1970). It is by that standard that Dunn's job performance should be judged.

There are two key perspectives from which to analyze this situation --…. [read more]

All Marketers Tell Stories Book Review and Analysis

The book, All Marketers Tell Stories by Seth Godin is entertaining, educational and very insightful about the nature of marketing according to one of the world's most celebrated gurus of this area of business. He treads a very controversial line about all marketers are liars or tell stories; it is the remarkable and believable ones that are successful. Treading this line of ethicacy and credibility, he takes the majority of the book to provide insights into how entire companies can be re-defined by the stories they tell. His contention is that the difference between a fib and a fraud is one that can be backed up with execution of the…. [read more]

Ability of a Bipolar Student Case Study

… Tracy Anglada: The Student With Bipolar Disorder: An Educator's Guide

While writing this article Tracy Anglada sought to offer guidance for educators who interact with students with bipolar disorders on a regular basis. She talks about the most suitable classroom placement. The most important thing educators should note is the classroom setting dictates the mode of learning. Therefore, they should always choose the setting that best suits the need of the student given the circumstances.

For instance, a regular classroom would be appropriate in the event that the student is presently stable on medication with previous indications of success in similar situations. Bipolar disorder emerges as significant health impairment. Though most students with bipolar disorders are often very bright, they are often unable to perform…. [read more]

Managing Diversity Is a Fact Research Paper

… 15). As Figiel and Kummel Sasser point out, companies are comprised of people and people have prejudices that cannot be easily erased. A third general problem for Diversity is the different attitudes of different cultures. For example, Rich and Mihalek discuss a study involving a fictional job applicant who lies on his resume and showing that different cultures may act differently when faced with ethical problems. Focusing on students in order to determine how they will eventually behave in the workplace, Rich and Mihalek found that minority students "felt much stronger than the non-minority students that the liar was preventing a more qualified person from getting the job...felt a stronger sense of loyalty to the university...are more sensitive to ethical transgressions by their peers and….

Observation of a Group Report Term Paper

… ¶ … Narcotics Anonymous Group Meeting

Group therapy is a method of counseling that provides the opportunity for addicted individuals to benefit from each other's experiences. It allows participants to share their perspectives and experiences with others in similar positions and promotes more intimate sharing and greater honesty than many other forms of therapy, particularly those between one addicted patient and a therapist.

The setting of the group meeting varies from group to group, but generally, groups meet weekly. Group leaders are almost always former addicts themselves, and some groups divide leadership responsibilities among several individuals. In some groups, newcomers are welcomed and encouraged to introduce themselves and participate; in others, newcomer meetings either take place at different times or they immediately precede the regular….

Prison Over-Crowding Prison Crowing Solutions Essay

… Treating the taxpayers (even the rich…who already pay the vast share of taxes) like piggybanks whenever a crisis comes up is simply wrong-headed and makes the problem worse in the long run. The money going through the system right now is not being spent wisely and it needs to be spent on keeping our society's miscreants away from the public.

Intellectual Diversity on the Surface Thesis

… Only this will prevent radical professors from intruding their "political agenda into the academic curriculum," by balancing it with a conservative political agenda. Nevertheless, the truth is that the majority of students do not change their political views in college, while those who move leftward do so more because of "gender and socioeconomic status" than the influence of professors (Mariani and Hewitt 2008).

As a man of words, Horowitz is quite clever about making the ABOR sound reasonable enough, and is highly skilled and practiced at playing the role of the beleaguered conservative struggling along against the mighty liberal intellectual, media and cultural elites. In reality, he also joined Dinesh DeSouza and Allan Bloom in the 1980s and 1990s in denouncing the supposed leftist dominance…. [read more]

Poetry Amiri Baraka Essay

… ¶ … Black Poem:

The Convergence of Culture, Art, and Identity

in the Works of Amiri Baraka

It is difficult to characterize Amiri Baraka's legacy in American literature and pop culture. He is deeply respected by some, deeply reviled by others. He has been considered a national treasure and a national disgrace. His poems have inspired, intrigued, empowered, terrified, and disgusted readers for over five decades. This extreme range of reactions speaks to the power of Baraka's artistic voice, a power that he uses to provoke emotion, reflection, and revolution both in individual readers and in society as a whole. As he said in a speech given at Rutgers University in 1997, "form and content are weapons of self-consciousness and revolution" (Chicago Review 111). Over…. [read more]

Introduction of Person

The person profiled in this paper is now a young woman of 22, whose name is Nita. Nita grew up in Los Angeles, the daughter of a Cajun woman, Delaire, whose relatives are almost all African-American, but who has French blood as well, from centuries back. This is important to know because Nita's looks cannot be differentiated from a white woman's looks. As a matter of fact, her father was Italian, so she has a longish, thin nose, pure white skin and black hair which is not curly. She is of normal height, though she is thin and gangly looking. Her mother, Delaire, a single parent, is a small, light-skinned black woman with fine features and it is…. [read more]

Christian Security the Christian Doctrine Essay

… Instead, we can observe that they had only gained false entrance in the eyes of man from the start. God will know of their falsehood. This view is even echoed in the text by Kowalski, which otherwise supports the view of conditional security. According to Kowalski, "In spite of my advocating conditional security, I believe much of the bottom line for both views is essentially the same, as, through their doctrine of the perseverance of the saints, Calvinists do not believe that those who rebel against God will share eternity with Him regardless of any profession of faith they may have made or Christian activity in which they may have engaged. They believe such people were not truly saved to begin with." (Kowalski, p. 1)…. [read more]
