I believe that life is a learning experience and being able to recognize our own strengths and weaknesses can help us become better individuals in anything we choose to do, whether it is positive abilities and skills that can help achieve our goals or negative personal areas that need improvement. Knowing yourself and what you can do, can help you recognize and overcome your weaknesses.
One of my greatest strengths at work that I have recognized would have to be my ability to be a well-organized individual. I tend to write what I have to do down on paper and prioritize what is more important to least important. In doing this, it helps me organize and accomplish my work and meet...

Personal Strengths and WeaknessesIdentifying personal strengths and weaknesses are crucial part of the overall learning processes. Just as understanding which methods and techniques help us to learn at a peak level, understanding our strengths and weaknesses help us to become more self-aware and well-rounded individuals.In any situation, a person has attributes that will detract from the task and others that will prove beneficial. I believe that weaknesses and struggles define a person more so than their strengths.Our strengths, from throwing a baseball 95 miles an hour to analyzing complex software code to compassion and patience with others, are usually easy to...

The method by which a person can seek to be successful in the varied areas of their life, can be pin pointed to how well a person is aware of them self. To be more specific, the person needs to have an understanding of self-awareness and the connection it has to success. "Self-awareness is fundamental to self-leadership. Leaders who have mastered self-awareness are realistic and accurate when they assess their personal strengths and weaknesses." (Watson, 2004).

StrengthsI believe that teamwork is one of my strengths because according to Kinlaw (1993) "being part of a team is one who unites others toward a shared destiny through sharing information and ideas, empowering others and developing trust." My ability to interact, communicate and cooperate with a group will enable me to be an effective member of a team and work towards a common goal.I believe that teamwork is important when teaching because it allows all students and teachers to work and cooperate together with the aim of reaching a common objective.

Life is a learning experience. As a child I was constantly criticized and reminded daily of my flaws, but never commented on the good things. As I grown, the negativity I received affected my personality and way of life. I realized that in order to become a better individual, I needed to recognize my strengths and weaknesses, whether it be at work, home, or school, for myself as well as make improvements where needed.The majority of my strengths are related to my job. I am able to learn a task quickly if necessary. Deadlines are made on time. I can multi-task if required. And also, solving problems by doing research in the company's database comes naturally to me.

Art is the desire of a man to express himself, to record the reactions of his personality to the world he lives in.
Amy Lowell (1874 - 1925)
It's very surprising that I had to think for a reasonable amount of time before I finally came up with the lists of my strengths and weaknesses. As a human being sometimes we forget to measure ourselves for self enhancement. I am not sure how artistic I am going to be in presenting myself, but I believe that I will fulfill the purpose of this paper if after finishing it I can maintain my healthy qualities and start making effort to take control of my...

The Japanese culture has been greatly influenced by its religions, and one of the most influential religions has been Shintoism. Shintoism has been dated back to 500BC, when the descendants of the sun goddess, Amaterasu-OmiKami, worshiped the gods and goddesses of Japan. Shinto means "way of the gods" and that represents what people who practice Shintoism believe in. Shintoism is a religion based on Japanese mythology, which is centered on a male god, Izanagi, and a female goddess, Izanami. These two gods were believed to have created Japan, which was thought to be the only land in the whole word. The two gods had two children, the sun goddess Amaterasu, and the storm god, Susanowo. ...

Being a parent is by far the most fulfilling and toughest job anyone can have. One way to make the job of being a parent a little easier is by learning a child’s strengths and weaknesses. The importance of knowing a child’s strengths and weaknesses can be found throughout the short stories “Everyday Use” by Alice Walker and “I Stand Here Ironing” by Tillie Olsen. Assessing a child’s strengths and weaknesses is something that teachers have been doing in the classroom for a very long time. The techniques that teachers use in the classroom can also be used in the home by parents.

Biological Positivism has both its strengths and weaknesses, it changed the way of criminological ideas and opened up new theories that were based on scientific facts rather than philosophical ideas like in Classicism. It also highlighted the importance of looking into peoples genetic make-up as research such as Brunners' research into the extra 'Y' chromosome which led to the idea that genetic defects in a family can cause abnormal behaviours and also the Twin and Adoptions studies that showed a correlation between genetics and crime. In more modern approaches, researchers then started to look more into the brain and biochemical factors such as brain dysfunctions and imbalanced chemicals....

The Strengths and Weaknesses of Augustine’s and Ireneau's Theodicy
‘Evil did not come from God, since God’s creation was faultless and
perfect’ (St Augustine)
St Augustine was a man wrote a theodicy about the problem of evil and
suffering based on the Creation and Fall of Genesis in the bible, he
believed that evil was caused by something that was outside the
omnipotence of God. God himself is all powerful but after creating the
world, he Himself would not be able to control the actions that human
beings create in changing it. When God created the world, with
absolutely no evil and suffering, he saw what he had done and saw it
was all good.

Psychology is one of the newest sciences. Because it is the science of the mind and behavior, it is also less concrete than some of the other sciences. Over the years, social scientists have developed theories or perspectives based off of their observations, research, and the perspectives of other scientists. Although there is some overlap, each of the major perspectives of psychology is unique. As a result, they each have strengths and weaknesses and explain psychology in a different way. One theory, the sociocultural perspective, is exactly what its name suggests. It’s the idea that the society and groups that an individual belongs to are what influences development, thoughts, and...

As Gowthorpe (2003: P457) argued, that "A budget is a plan, expressed in financial and/or more general quantitative terms, which extends forward for a period into the future." Budgeting actually refers to the process that, after the strategic plan of the business has been made, companies made a short term plan (usually one year) to meet the strategic purpose. Traditional budgeting has offered a lot of contributions in so many years' practice. But it seems it is more and more unsuitable for the modern business. In this paper, I will give a brief induction for traditional budgeting; and then discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the traditional budgeting; last I will explain and evaluate...

Crime has existed for thousands of years, but research and theories into crime as a 'science' have only emerged within the last couple of centuries. There are many factors and influences that may lead up to any individual committing a criminal act, whether they be biological, psychological, sociological, cultural or gender based. Any one of these factors are necessary to induce conditions for the existence of a crime, typically, criminological research tends to focus on one or two factors instead of analysing them as a multi-factored simultaneously. Early criminologists such as Beccaria, (1738-1794) and Bentham (1748-1832) sought to explain crime within the classical school of...

The Three Main Theories of Deviance and Their Strengths and Weaknesses
A functionalist analysis of deviance looks for the source of deviance
in the nature of society rather than in the biological or
psychological nature of the individual. Although functionalists agree
that social control mechanisms such as the police and the courts are
necessary to keep deviance in check, many argue that a certain amount
of deviance can contribute to the well-being of society.
Durkhiem (1895) believed that:
* Crime is an 'integral part of all healthy societies'. This is
because individuals are exposed to different influences and will
not be committed...

To attempt one's own definition of religion, I feel one must first explore its origins, characteristics, function and practices, including the etymology of the word.The etymology of the word "religion" has been under scrutiny for many years. The word is believed, by some, to have come from the Latin religio, meaning "reverence (for the gods)" or "conscientiousness" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Religion). Others believe that it comes from Latin word religare, which means "to tie, to bind." (http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/Religion) Both meanings show the power that the word religion could have on individuals and...

The Strengths and Weaknesses of the System of Choosing Presidential Candidates
It seems reasonable to conjecture that the Achilles' heel of the
modern presidency is one of recruitment. The long-winded delegate
nomination process could in theory be replaced by a daylong direct
election of presidential candidates. Instead, tradition dictates that
the presidential race is drawn out quadrennially over the pre-primary,
primary, Party Convention and campaign seasons. All four phases
influence the outcome of candidate selection and much also depends on
campaign finance, the role of the media and the nominees themselves.
Although the process is considered a...

The Strengths and Weaknesses of the Cosmological Argument for the Existence of God
The cosmological argument seeks to prove the existence of God by
looking at the universe. It is an A posteriori proof based on
experience and the observation of the world not logic so the outcome
is probable or possible not definite. The argument is in three forms;
motion, causation and being. These are also the first three ways in
the five ways presented by Aquinas through which he believed the
existence of God could be shown. Aquinas regarded Aristotle as the
principal philosopher so many of these concepts originate in the
thinking of Aristotle.
One example of the...

An Analysis Of The Strengths And Weaknesses Of The Big Six Database Servers.
In 1991 I performed a thorough evaluation and comparison of the four major DBMSs at the time: Informix, Ingres, Oracle, and Sybase.

At that stage, the distinguishing criteria were query optimizers, triggers, views, and support for distributed databases. Some products had these features, but some others' marketing per sonnel were just talking about them. For example,...

"Create all the happiness you are able to create; remove all the misery you are able to remove." - Jeremy BenthamJeremy Bentham created the utilitarianism school of thought, which is an incredibly useful ethical position. It can be most effectively defined by Wikipedia, "Utilitarianism is the idea that the moral worth of an action is solely determined by its contribution to overall utility." Utilitarianism has many benefits, but those benefits are harmonized with some major flaws. I will discuss the founding fathers of utilitarianism, the strengths and weaknesses of act-utilitarianism and rule-utilitarianism, other forms of utilitarianism, and recent philosophers of this school of...

The fundamental process of strategic planning is through the encompassment of SWOT analysis. Taking a chance will be inevitable if a company fails to self-evaluate and strategically plan for the future.

Multiculturalism vs. Melting Pot
Before I begin discussing these two topics, we must fully understand what they mean. The definition in the dictionary states that, multiculturalism consists of, relates to, or is designed for the cultures of several different races. Whereas the word melting pot is not a term used in the dictionary. For the purpose of this assignment I will make up my own definition for both these terms.
Multiculturalism to me is defined as abundant amounts of cultures in one area. Or it is simply a society where many different types of people with diverse cultural backgrounds, religion, and traditional values and beliefs cohabit peacefully with one...

A religious experience is an event which brings about an encounter between God and the experient. It is a communication between God and the individual which brings about an overwhelming awareness of God. As a result, the experient may undergo a conversion, may believe they have received a revelation or feel called to fulfil a divine commission or spiritual responsibility. But a question that would arise is whether there are strong grounds that suggest that such experiences prove the existence of God.
There is not just one definitive type of religious experience, there is a variety. They could be coincidental events that are given a religious significance, corporate and private...

Before the 1980s, majority of the companies were manufacturing units, producing a limited range of products, with material and direct labour being the paramount costs. Since overhead costs were low and information computing costs high, the companies were satisfied using traditional product costing methods. The emergence of the 1980s, brought with it intensive competition across the globe and growing importance of overheads while that of direct labour declined (Drury, C., pp 225). Also there were problems that were being faced with traditional cost systems. The use of traditional costing lead to a distortion of data as it allocated indirect manufacturing costs by using volume-related...
