interest and values

What did you already know about yourself that showed up in your results?

I think the results showed that I am pretty aware of what job would fit my personality, interest and values as basically all the jobs that showed up on my results were either similar to my current job field as an aircraft electrician or what I am trying to get my degree in which is finance.

Based on the online assessment, what are your personality type, interests, and values?

I am an ISTJ (Introversion, Sensing, Thinking, Judging). ISTJs are good with details and think logically. Because they think logically, they often become practical problem-solvers and adopt a responsible outlook on life. ISTJs are good organizers and get things done. They often become good managers or hands-on technicians. They enjoy a workplace that is organized with clear expectations, where they can use their detailed knowledge and ability to organize. My interests were Realistic, Investigative and Conventional. My values were Achievement, Recognition and Working Conditions.

How can understanding more about yourself, help you make better decisions on your future career path?

Everyone should find a career that they love or at least enjoy, this makes work seem like less of a chore when you enjoy doing it which will lead to a better all-around quality of life from the workplace to home life. Knowing what jobs fit your personality can help lead to finding the type of career that can fit that mold.

What are two potential occupations that fit your personality, interests, and values and why? (use the Explore Occupations results for this part of the question)

Aerospace Engineering and Operations Technician which I am, this career field lets me keep an organized workspace as a requirement and requires problem solving. The second, which is something that I could picture myself doing is Landscape Architect, I have always been interested in doing landscaping even as a kid I built a goldfish pond area in our backyard by myself.

Using the last four weeks of class discussing the discipline as support, how does the discipline, Political Science, fit into those potential occupational plans?

I am very much an introvert so the only way I can think that Political Science would fit into my potential occupational plans is if as a Landscape Architect I had to converse with a client and politics came up then I would have a good base of knowledge to have the conversation with them.

global societal issues

Identify the global societal issue you have chosen to research for your Final Paper, an argumentative essay, and explain why further research on this topic is important.

The global societal issue that is caused by Veterans begin with mental health issues and getting addicted to drugs. What people don’t realize is that when our military men and women come back from the war they have gone through a lot and seen more than the normal person can imagine. Having Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a big part of the problems too.  As some of us when 9-11 happen it shock the United States and cause our military to go in overdrive to protect us. For those service men and women, it carried them to place they didn’t want to be, but they stood their ground and fought us. As some got hurt and some didn’t make it back home to their loved ones. The ones who did come home came back with more problems than we have in our daily lives. Having to live with the stress of seeing what happened to cause more damage than good for them. Another problem is that they came home to no jobs and no place to live. Enough though their job should be there when they get back. Some companies just don’t do that. They feel like they need that spot filled and that the production needs to be gotten regardless of what is going on. Veterans also come home to the house they use to live in be rented out to someone else. Regardless if they are gone a year or two the landlord should have the respect to find out what is going on before that happens. I think this needs to be discussed forth and more research needs to be done on it. In my opinion, most to all our Veterans are not begin treated fair.

Provide a clear and concise thesis statement that includes a solution to the global societal issue.

Majority of our service men and women become homeless because they have mental issues and became addicted to drugs. Among the Veterans, most of them are poor and have no place or no one to turn to.

Explain how this global societal issue impacts a specific population.

Among Veterans today most of them are men. Men are most likely to become homeless because they tend to turn to drugs or drinking to help them cope with their problems. With little to no help or group support, they can turn to they will most like be lost on the streets and no one will look or care what will happen to them.

Locate a peer-reviewed scholarly source and provide statistical data that you found surprising on the topic.

The article I found was History of co-occurring disorders and current mental health status among homeless Veterans by Kele Ding, Matthew Slate, & Jingzhen Yang. (2018). According to Kele, Jingzhen (2018), “Among the all-male participating homeless veterans (n = 253), about 20% did not report date of birth. Of the remaining cases (n = 199), 37.2% were younger than 50 years of age, 51.0% were aged 50 to 64, and 12.0% were aged 65 or older. The age range was 22 to 78. Missing cases in age were replaced by the average of known ages in the model test. The most commonly reported race was White (n = 149, 58.9%), followed by Black (n = 86, 34.0%). Nearly half (44.3%) of participants had served in the military for more than three years, nearly one-third (32.8%) served one to three years, and slightly over 10% (10.7%) served less than one year. More than two-thirds (n = 180,71.1%) had served in a war zone. Of the total sample, 32.8% reported that they never married, 44.7% were divorced, and 19.4% were married”.

Is the U.S. in or entering into a new Cold War with Russia? Why or why not?

What political ideologies were in conflict during the Cold War?

During the Second World War, United States and the Soviet Union put their differences aside to face their common enemy, Nazi Germany. However, after the war ended, they continued their ideological conflict capitalist liberal democracy versus communism. In the final stages of the Second World War, both the United States and the Soviet Union tried to gain the upper hand in territory and weapons technology. The Soviet Union at the time was a communist nation that was based on the principles of collectivism, while the United States was a modern liberal nation based primarily on the principles of individualism. In other words, the Soviet Union was positioned on the far left side of the economic spectrum, while the United States was position on the right side.  This difference in ideology was a major source of the conflict between the two nations because, throughout the Cold War, the Soviet Union sought to expand communism to other regions and the United States sought to stop it with its policy of containment. Each side clearly was trying to promote their own ideology while trying to limit the other at the same time.

What economic systems were in conflict during the Cold War?

The economic systems that were in conflict during the Cold War are communism, capitalism, and democracy. The Soviet Union was seeking to expand communism into the countries while the United States was fighting to stop the spread of communism and instead supported the values of capitalism and democracy.

Why did the U.S.S.R ultimately dissolve?

The leader of the U.S.S.R Mikhail Gorbachev believed to better the Soviet economy depended on a better relationship with the world, especially the United States. Gorbachev withdrew Soviet troops from Afghanistan, where they had fought a war since 1979 and reduce the Soviet military presence in the Warsaw Pact nations of Eastern Europe. Frustration over the bad economy combined with Mikhail Gorbachev’s hands-off approach to Soviet satellites to inspire a series of independence movements in the republics on the USSR’s fringes. One by one Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia declared independence from Moscow, followed by the Republic of Belarus, the Russian Federation, and Ukraine who created the Commonwealth of Independent States. Lastly, the eight of the nine remaining republics also left which lead to the fall of the Soviet Union.

Is the U.S. in or entering into a new Cold War with Russia? Why or why not?

I would say no the U.S. is not entering a new Cold War with Russia. The reason being, The United States and its allies are much stronger now than before. Also, the tensions between Russia and the U.S. possibly more volatile but they can always create opportunities for the West. Also, Russia is much more dependent on trade, and lastly there are no rules, for example, unlike during the Cold War when U.S. and Soviet pilots generally kept their respectful distance to avoid sparking a nuclear confrontation, Russian military pilots now routinely buzz U.S. warships and planes flashing their array of missiles.
