 PSY615:Prior  to beginning work on this discussion, read the required article by  Appel and Kim-Appel (2010) and watch the Episode: 118 – Inside Out: An  Introduction to Psychology – The Enduring Self video excerpt, which is  accessible through the ProQuest database in the Ashford University  Library.  For this discussion, you will build on your experience in the  “Personality Theory at Work in Popular Media” discussion from last week  by re-examining the major theoretical approaches studied in the class  (psychodynamic, behavioral, learning, trait and type, and humanistic)  within the realm of social networks. In addition to these five domains,  you will also consider the theoretical approaches related to complex  models. Your initial post will be presented in a video format. Please  see the instructions for this below.  To begin, choose a social networking site (this may be Facebook  (Links  to an external site.)Links to an external site., LinkedIn (Links to an  external site.)Links to an external site. or Twitter  (Links to an  external site.)Links to an external site.). Choose someone you know in  your personal or professional life who has a profile on one of these  three social networking services. It is important in your posts and  responses not to disclose identifying information about your subject.  You may choose a pseudonym by which to identify your selected subject in  this discussion.  Choose one of the five domains (psychodynamic, behavioral, learning,  trait and type, and humanistic) and create a personality profile based  on your current knowledge of your chosen subject using the framework of  your selected domain. Then, review the online profile or feed of your  subject in your chosen social networking site and create a personality  profile based on the information your subject has published on the site  using the framework of your selected domain.  Compare and contrast the two different personality profiles. Provide an  analysis of any differences between the two profiles. Select one of the  models with the complex models domain. Explain the reasoning for the  differences between the real world and online personality of your  subject using your selected model within the complex models domains.  Research a minimum of two articles on your chosen model and use these to  support your statements. Evaluate and describe the usefulness of  complex models as they pertain to this exercise in personality theory.  You may create your initial post as a screencast video presentation or a  video blog using the software of your choice. Quick-Start Guides are  available for Prezi (Links to an external site.)Links to an external  site., Screencast-O-Matic (Links to an external site.)Links to an  external site., and YouTube (Links to an external site.)Links to an  external site. for your convenience. Be sure to include all the required  material from the instructions above in your presentation or video  blog. Once you have created your video, please include the link in your  initial post.
