For the final assignment, you will be identifying a famous person and creating an illustrative biography using concepts from the theories presented in this course. This week we begin by researching the person’s biographical information. Search specifically for environmental factors and experiences that have played a role in the subject’s personality development. Use a scholarly/academic source for each of the following aspects of the subject’s personality. Adjustment and Adaptation Cognition Culture Biology These four areas are outlined in section 1.3 of your text book. This also loosely reflects the organization of the Illustrative Biographies provided in the text. Take care to choose a person of substance who has had an impact on many, whether for good or evil. It could be a celebrity such as Aretha Franklin, a sports figure such as Magic Johnson, or a political figure such as Lincoln or Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR). These are examples; select someone you really want to learn more about. Other suggestions include: Vladimir Putin Elon Musk ******Steve Jobs******* Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Tom Brady Cult leader Jim Jones Ruth Bader Ginsberg Madeline Albright Kamala Harris Jeffrey Dahmer Michael J. Fox You may choose to write a paper or create a presentation. Need an example of a webinar? Growing Up Online (Links to an external site.) and Enhancing Online Schooling Experience Through Intentional Connections And Participation (Links to an external site.) are student UAGC Psych Club symposium presentations and are examples of how to present recorded information. (There are many ways to do this. Consider looking at other examples online to assist you.)

The paper must address the following sections. Please use the following section headers. Introduction Identify the famous person you have chosen to feature in your illustrative biography. Provide a brief overview of their life. Identify at least three credible sources that you will use to develop your biography. Adjustment and Adaptation Describe how your chosen subject has adapted to their life circumstances. Do you see a healthy or an unhealthy adjustment in personality? Note that this will be totally dependent on the subject that you have chosen. For example, if you choose Jeffrey Dahmer, then the adjustment and adaptation will clearly fall into the unhealthy category. Cognition Describe the role of cognition in the subject’s life. From your research, how did this person think? Were they emotional or cerebral? How did clear or faulty thinking factor into their personality? Culture Describe the cultural context of your subject’s life. What role did culture play in the development of their personality? Biology Describe the biological factors were at play in your subject’s life. For example, if you choose Michael J. Fox, his Parkinson’s disease would be a major biological factor in his adult personality.

Frequently asked questions
How soon can I get my paper done?
It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.
Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.
We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.
Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?
All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.
What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?
Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!
Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?
We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.
I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?
Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.
