When when writing a narrative 5 paragraph essay, where do I get started in putting my thoughts into a fluid draft?
When taking thoughts to paper, it is important to have a plan. A plan that I give students to use is the pyramid of importance. Much like the journalism pyramid, this pyramid allows for you to put most important part of the message you are trying to deliver at the top. The who, what, where, why and how, in addition to the sensory experience should be included here. Also I recommend that students record their ideas on voice memo on their phone or computer so that all of your thoughts are recorded and transcribed into words. This works best for auditory learners. Reading out loud and listening back to what you came up with helps and allows for you to save time in the writing process. It helps deliver authentic voice that reader will be delivered and helps catch errors when reading back and listening.

What are the dynamics of understanding personality?
When understanding the dynamics of personality psychology it is important to understand the root of the word personality. The root of the word personality has the foundation in the Latin word persona. It is better known as the mask we wear in the way that we present our outward being to the world. Personality is alchemy of internal genetic composition(nature) and environmental factors/influence (nurture). The roots of personality psychology can be found in the work done by Allport in 1937. Allport classified personality as nomothetic and idiographic. Nomothetic is deeper seated in the laws that apply to different people experiencing the same personality trait such as self actualization, confidence or strength. The idiographic aspect takes an approach that is more focused on the unique trait or characteristic of a person in terms of their personality.
