Criminal and personality
I think this is descriptive because I also agreed that everything has a combination including human beings. In order to understand how a person acts, we should analyze the person's personality. According to the California Psychological Inventory, Hans J. Eysenck spent years defining whether criminal behavior had any relationship with personality. He divided criminal personality into three parts, which is Psychoticism, Neuroticism, and Extroversion. Psychoticism, which describes people as being aggressive, egocentric, and impulsive. Neuroticism describes people with low self-esteem, anxiety, and wide mood swings. The final one is Extroversion, which describes the personality of an individual who is sensation seeking, dominant, and assertive. These personality type traits are found in criminal. That's why people is like a clock. There should be a reason of a person doing something. And this research from Hans J. Eysenck has explained that personality is related to criminal.
As what I learned in the previous research, I knew more about criminal and personality. In the article, the writer mentioned Han J. Eysenck. However, How does the theory of Hans J. Eysenck analyze criminal by personality? I want to know more about him so as I was reading in my Google Reader, http://educationforum.ipbhost.com/lofiversion/index.php/t11377.html, caught my attention because it listed most of the information about Hans J. Eysenck. And how did his theory develop.
It is a quote from Hans J. Eysenck. I think this statement totally explained Eysenck's attitude. I agreed with his quote because if something people think that they must be true, supposing they are wrong, no one would discover the real truth. The major strength of Eysenck's model was to provide detailed theory of the causes of personality. His three factor model of personality is a model that makes use of five traits Openness to experience, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness, and neuroticism. The big five theory is similar to Eysenck's traits, however, Eysenck didn't agree with the address of penness to experience. There are lots of reference of Eysenck's theory and we can learn more about personality not only criminal personality through his theory.
I'm learning more about criminal personality right now, and in particular what I'm wondering about is: How does criminal personality theory use in our daily lives? As I was reading in my Google Reader, a magazine article, "Forensic Criminal Personality Profiling: Inside the Minds of Madmen", http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/122594/forensic_criminal_personality_profiling.html?cat=17, caught my attention because this article talks about forensic psychology and how people know criminal personality can help knowing forensic criminal.
The quote I chose here is basically saying criminal personality profiling can be extremely helpful in allowing investigators to narrow their research for a suspect, especially when physical evidence and other leads are scarce.
This image is from Kuzeytac, "http://www.flickr.com/photos/kuzeytac/3484168920/". This photo impressed me of my topic - personality and criminal. It is about a baby in a gate, and it reminds me of the prison. Maybe it's a bit too serious, but what I think is that if a person is born with a criminal personality, it is poor as personality is a hard thing to change. Although babies are pure and lovely, they have a destiny to get into crime, and becoming not pure anymore. The picture indicated people who have inborn criminal psyche.
