Week 2: Journal In the current state of the world, the media is significant in our daily lives. All forms of media, news, and social media experts use directed personality observations to sway public opinion in the coming political climate. This week’s theories are ones that inform us how current media is used to disseminate information based on what is of interest to specific demographics. The stories told, and the presentation differs depending on who is watching. For example, in the middle of the country, the weather is a big event, so one network finds stories that focus on how the weather is affecting the local economy. In contrast, another network will focus on how people are preparing for weather effects. An illustration of the usage of personality tests to shape the real world is visible through the way businesses search for employees. Indeed.com is an example business uses personality tests to filter down to the best candidate from a large group of applicants.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
