You must report your findings in an informative-APA Styled 1,400- to 1,750-word paper, and include the following elements:
I. Description of interviewee:
Age, Gender, Ethnicity, Relationship
Socioeconomic status, marital status, type of employment.
Interviewee has giving permission to conduct the interview.
II. List of interview categories/headings that drive appropriate questions:
Memory and Learning Processes
Cognition and Problem Solving Processes
Myers/Briggs results & interpretation as to accuracy
Effects of gender and culture on emotions
Influences on Attitude: Genetic/environmental or both with examples
Personality: Influences of Race, Gender and Ethnicity on Personality
Past experiences impacting personality development
The following is a brief example of the types of questions you should be formulating:
· Does the interviewee remember information more accurately if he or she observes the behavior being performed or does he or she prefer to read how the behavior is performed?
· Does the interviewee prefer studying in a library, or at home where there are background noises and some distractions?
· Has the person you are interviewing taken the Myers Briggs test? Report the results.
· Does the interviewee think these results are accurate? Why or why not?
· Which experiences does this person think contributed most in the development of his or her personality?
· Does this person feel that he or she is self-monitoring in regards to his or her attitudes? How or how not?
· What does the interviewee feel was the strongest influence on his or her attitudes?
· What role does your interviewee think a person’s race, gender, or ethnicity play when forming that person’s personality and attitudes?
· Does this person feel he or she is better at tasks when intrinsically motivated or extrinsically motivated?
Remember: Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines (Title Page, Introduction, Headings, Conclusion and Reference page. Be sure to include in-text citations using your resources from your reference page).
