Use an overhead of Sheldon's body types, and present this to the class with a short lecture on the proposed types and personality variables. Ask the students if there is any validity to this concept of personality. Some will say yes and use an example of a friend or relative. Explain the problems with this research and with trying to explain personality in terms of personal observations and common experiences. Use this discussion as a springboard for lectures on personality theory. 2. Have the students write on a piece of paper their "best" and "worst" personality characteristic. Be sure the students do not write their names on their papers and instruct any individual who does not want the information to be made public to so indicate. Have the papers passed in and discuss the best as a lead-in for your lectures in personality theory.

  L ecture E xtenders 1. – A Day in the Life: Manager, Psychometics, and Assessment. Students often think of psychologists as one dimensional - a therapist, researcher, teacher, or consultant. Actually many psychologists have jobs that are multi-dimensional combining skills from many career areas. A Day in the Life is an example of Nicholas Greco’s day as a manager of psychometrics and assessment in a busy and challenging Neuroscience Department at a major pharmaceutical company. I tell all of my students to go into a career they enjoy, and if they are fortunate, they’ll truly love what they are doing. I also encourage them to strive to develop a niche within that field in order to “stand out from the crowd.” I practice what I preach everyday as the manager of psychometrics and assessment in the Neuroscience Department at a major pharmaceutical company. My job is challenging, exciting, and rewarding.

    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.
