reformation and thesis

so I have to work on my paper some more because there are still mistakes. it has to be in perfect APA format.

Aggression Theory. Aggression theory, I learned, is ‟intended harm and is driven by anger” (Anderson & Bushman, 2002, p. 36). Sometimes it is a “person factor (biological, belief system, traits) and sometimes it is situational (frustration, pain, provocation) that a person may behave violently” (pp. 35-37).

Social Learning Theory. According to social learning theory (Bandura, Ross et al., 1961) People acquire aggressive responses the same way they acquire other complex forms of social behavior—either by direct experience or by observing others.

Systems Theory. Systems Theory, first proposed by Bertalanffly (1950) emphasizes the way in which organized systems (human and non-human) respond in an adaptive way to cope with significant changes in their external environments so as to maintain their basic structures intact. We all want “homeostasis” a balance to get back to normal (p. 134).

Game Theory. Game theory is the study of strategic decision making. Specifically, it is “the study of mathematical models of conflict and cooperation between intelligent rational decision-makers” (Myerson, 1991, p. 1). I studied Zero and non-Zero theory and the Prisoner’s Dilemma.

Intercultural Conflict and Face Negotiation Theory. I enjoyed learning more about Face Negotiation Theory (Ting-Toomey, 1985). Collective cultures, such as an Asian culture, is more concerned about “saving face“ and for the good of all; whereas, low-context cultures, such as the United States, are more concerned with the “self” (p. 362). I learned this could lead to a conflict because of differing cultural values. Pederson (2006) also addresses “multi-cultural resolutions” (p. 649) by getting an understanding of the other party’s cultural perceptions; and how the problem would be handled in the culture of the opponent.


Also, IFL is doing a sermon about the reformation and that was a question last night on Jeopardy and I answered Theses instead of reformation. but I was on the right track because it was still Martin Luther.


Played harp early this morning.
