I found this article very interesting because I had no idea this field of psychology existed. I find it very interesting thinking about the advertising and how to create a commercial or add, etc. That will appeal to the public and draw them in. What about a certain add makes people more likely to choose that product? How effective are these techniques? The only thing I would have liked more is if the average salary of a media psychologist was included.

Jose M Quiroz's insight:

football (soccer) takes part in sports psychology and i think is a great deal (since it has been played for a long period of time and is played in most of the rest of the world.) the question here was why Moyes over Mourhino? well the answer is easy: its because Mourhino does not have what Moyes do. Moyes pays a great deal of importance to culture, ethics and moral which are inevitably  real traits for a long lasting company with great accomplishments.

Top management succession lessons from football... a great article.

Mark Keane's comment, May 14, 2013 4:50 AM
Great find Ioannis. Where succession is concerned it is also worth noting the importance of longevity, something Sir Alex is certainly known for. It would seem that in the managerial sense Manchester United and Sir Alex sought the development of a new era built on solid foundations rather than a short-lived succession covering a few seasons. David Moyes certainly fits the bill in this regard having managed Everton since 2002. Indeed, he is the third-longest serving manager in the English Premiership behind Ferguson and Wenger.

this is a very helpful source of information due to the ignorance of some (but not all) when it comes to choosing a career regardless of which field or area i have chose.

Sam Stephens's curator insight, November 21, 2013 2:43 PM

I found this article very helpful and revealing. The fact that it actually stated what the average salary for each job was, and that it said what level of education was required for the job. I always thought that in order to have a job in the psychology field I would have to go to school the extra years, and be even more in debt than I already may be in. However learning that some of the careers offer a position with only a masters degree offered a new hope for me. I look at it this way, I can find an entry level position after I recieve my masters, then if I really want to I can work to get my PhD while I am working. This way I will have a full time job, and be able to afford the schooling more readily.

Sam Stephens's curator insight, November 22, 2013 2:35 PM

I found it incredibly helpful that this article explained some of the pro's and con's of this field of psychology. I had never thought about it, but say a forensic psychologist may be called in at any time of the day or night. School psychologists however, have a predictable schedule and even get summers off! To me that is a big bonus, also the fact that the school psychologist still make upwards or 50,000 dollars a year is a big importance for me.

Generation of children left without vital skills  - Telegraph | psychology | Scoop.it
Lord Baker, the former Conservative education secretary, says that large numbers of children are being forced to leave school lacking the vital skills needed to find a job
Jose M Quiroz's insight:

Education in colleges and universities is very important; but has failed to equip students with much of the essential skills they actually need. A further education is not guarantee that one will be successful in life; for example in England and Japan have the greatest number of overqualified students in the world just because education has turned too much theory based instead of hands on learning. I think that in order to resolve this problem is too think ahead of the problem and choose not only a career that matches you; but also one that won’t leave you cleaning tables at a bar six months right after graduation.

“There are five hiring attributes we have across the company,” explained Bock. “If it’s a technical role, we assess your coding ability, and half the roles in the company are technical roles. For every job, though, the No. 1 thing we look for is general cognitive ability, and it’s not I.Q. It’s learning ability. It’s the ability to process on the fly. It’s the ability to pull together disparate bits of information. We assess that using structured behavioral interviews that we validate to make sure they’re predictive.”

New research suggests detailed analysis of a situation may undermine the decision-making process because variables are inappropriately weighed.

Recent research results go against the "conventional wisdom" (which had resulted that thoughtful deliberation improves decision-making.) Indeed “In everyday life, people often try to be specific to be accurate,” said Suk and colleagues, but this new research suggests that specificity and accuracy don’t necessarily go hand-in-hand.

I really liked how this article actually gave interviews from experts in each of the fields. I especially liked how Dr. Mark Costanzo explained how he became interested in psychology, and what type of field he was most interested in and specialized. His advice to not choose a specialty right away made a lot of sense to me as well, being able to really discover which field is the right for you is incredibly important. Furthermore, I found it incredibly helpful that Dr. Costanzo explained that he is mainly a teacher and proffessor but he does consult every once in a while, and has been an expert witness, to me that sounds very interesting.

Consciousness Might Emerge from a Data Broadcast

Consciousness Might Emerge from a Data Broadcast | psychology | Scoop.it
What is consciousness? A neuroscientist's new book argues that it arises when information is broadcast throughout the brain

Quantum physicist Wolfgang Pauli expressed disdain for sloppy, nonsensical theories by denigrating them as “not even wrong,” meaning they were just empty conjectures that could be quickly dismissed. Unfortunately, many remarkably popular theories of consciousness are of this ilk—the idea, for instance, that our experiences can somehow be explained by the quantum theory that Pauli himself helped to formulate in the early 20th century. An even more far-fetched idea holds that consciousness emerged only a few thousand years ago, when humans realized that the voices in their head came not from the gods but from their own internal spoken narratives.

Not every theory of consciousness, however, can be dismissed as just so much intellectual flapdoodle. During the past several decades, two distinct frameworks for explaining what consciousness is and how the brain produces it have emerged, each compelling in its own way. Each framework seeks to explain a vast storehouse of observations from both neurological patients and sophisticated laboratory experiments.

Via Wildcat2030
Jose M Quiroz's insight:

just as this article emphasizes,  the consciousness is incredibly difficult to analyze. To be said is that we as humans are most likely to want an answer for what can't be answered yet; even if that requires implanting sensory devices in peoples skulls, and brains to discover what is yet to be answered. In this case it is a confusing material just as psychology is in great part gray area, indeed the conscious could be explained as the process of storing data to later be processed and used in the required way it is needed.

Jose M Quiroz's insight:

I think that this article emphasizes very well how this nations system of education has failed. Yes! Failed. Besides having the most expensive form of education along with the English, it has so many former college students that simply give up; either because they did not have the money to keep going with their studies, they environment was way different as their way of life back home or because they simply decided it was worth nothing to just keep trying since it is just way to expensive and the investment doesn’t even pay off by the time you retire. Also it is very important to consider that some eastern universities suck as Malaysian Universities have a competitive system with for only a fraction of the cost from the ones in the U.S.A. and England.
