Describe your subject according to a Trait Theory of Personality.

Describe your subject according to a Trait Theory of Personality. You are to select any ONE trait theory of your choosing (single trait*, many traits, OR the essential-trait approach/Big Five**). Remember that you are demonstrating your knowledge and application of these theories, so be sure to provide evidence of your understanding of concepts and for your claims of your subject’s personality. This is where you include the specific information from your data sources (but you don’t need to describe them in terms of BLIS)!*If you choose the single trait approach, please just analyze ONE trait.**If you choose the Big Five, please demonstrate your knowledge of all five factors and where your individual would fall on each (and why).How your paper will be graded:How well did you demonstrate your understanding of the trait theory? How well did you apply the theory? Did you provide sufficient evidence to support your claims?Is your paper well-written? Your paper should be coherently organized with no spelling or grammatical errors. Your paper should be well organizes and logical.Did you cite and reference correctly (as necessary)? These must be done in APA format. If the idea is not your own, you must inform your reader from where it came. Everything cited must be referenced and everything referenced must be cited.Other HintsYour paper should be 2 pages, double-spaced, 12 point font. There should not be headings or extra lines between paragraphs and each paragraph should be indented.You do not need to spell out the BLIS sources of data. Simply describe your evidence. You’ve shown me that you understand the sources of data, already!Use quotations very sparingly. A quotation is used only if it provides strong evidence of your subject’s personality. Do not simply quote any old phrase you find in a book or journal article.Be consistent in the tense you use throughout the paper.Try not to use the passive tense: it really weakens the way the paper sounds.Example: A study was done by researchers. (Passive voice)The researchers did a study. (Active voice)Proof read! Just because a word goes through spellcheck as okay doesn’t mean it is exactly the right word for the context. Through and threw have two very different meanings as do there, their, and they’re. It is your language. Think about the actual meaning of the words when you write them.Citations in text: Whenever an idea comes from a place that is not your own mind, you must tell the reader where you got the idea. The shorthand version of this information is called a citation. Citations will be in APA (American Psychological Association) format. Everything cited must be referenced in the reference section (below) and everything referenced must be cited. Components of a citation include authors last names (only), the year of the publication, and the page on which the information was found (if using a direct quotation).Citations look like this: The researchers (Smith, 2002) found a significant difference between the conditions presented to the participants. Or this: In Liebert & Baron’s (1972) study, they discuss the results of their experiments.Do not list the first names of the authors or the name of the article/book anywhere in the body of the paper.References (on their own page at the end of the paper). Where did the information come from? ONLY references and citations will be in APA format. References will be on their own page with the word REFERENCES centered at the top of the page.APA Reference Information for BooksNotice that references use a “hanging indent”. This can be done automatically through word processing software.Author, A. A. (Year of publication). Title of work: Capital letter also for subtitle. (Edition). Location: Publisher.Helfer, M. E., Kempe, R. S., & Krugman, R. D. (1997). The battered child (5th ed.). Chicago, IL: University of Chicago Press.No plagiarism. Any plagiarism will result in a 0 on that portion of the assignment and will be reported through an Academic Dishonesty Incident Report. To minimize this risk, your paper must be below 15% duplicated in order to be evaluated. Any paper 15% duplicated or above will receive 0 points, even if sources are cited and referenced properly.Quotation Example“Few things are harder to put up with than the annoyance of a good example” (Twain, 1883, p. 7).
