2 Interview Profile This course, BEH225, has spent the past nine weeks introducing us to different human behaviors and specific types of mental disorders. When exploring theories and concepts associated with the psychology of the human mind, you quickly discover that genetics does play as big a role as does upbringing. I specifically enjoyed the section that explored different types of motivation an employee may or may not display. Another area that I found to be enlightening delved into the various psychological disorders that we may encounter during our life. I am going to apply what we have studied throughout this course to my interview with Dorothy. Certain aspects, methods, and attitudes are going to be explored, such as memory, learning, intelligence, personality, cognition, motivation, and testing of Dorothy and myself. Memory and Learning Do you remember or memorize information easily? Understanding different learning styles is important when evaluating how a person processes information. A learning style is simply a form of learning or an approach a person takes to learn and memorize information (LdPride.net, n.d). Possessing an understanding of how she receives and processes information helps the interviewer to be more organized. As a result when deciding how easily she remembers information, she refers to reading a book and observing a behavior as examples. Because the interviewer is a visual learner, he remembers information easier through observation. When asking Dorothy the same question she responded, “I remember more details when I observe a behavior, as opposed to reading about something, but I do not need to be directly involved”. The interviewer’s response is “it is much easier for me to remember details when I observe them. I prefer to be directly involved, especially if it is something I have to repeat”.

3 Interview Profile Long-Term Memory What learning strategies do you use so the information learned remains in your long- term memory? “Long-term memory is a system for permanently storing, managing, and retrieving information for later use. Items of information stored as long-term memory may be available for a lifetime” (Medicine.Net, 2004, Para. 1). When asking her the question about her process for remembering things over a long period, Dorothy responded , “I remember new information by associating it to something I already know, and then I store it in my long-term memory and link it to other similar information until it is ready to be re-called”. The interviewer’s response was very similar to the interviewee. He stated, “I link the information processed to already stored information, kind of like a comparison. The only problem is that if the information is not important or is boring, I tend to disregard it”. Observational Learning and Environment
