Discussion: Personality Assessment and Diagnosis
 
For this Discussion, review this week’s Learning Resources and consider the BEMIS Personality Report Sample and if this type of assessment is reflective of personality.
Post by Day 4 a reflection of the potential impact of results from the BEMIS Personality Report think about how the results from this type of assessment may or may not be reflective of personality. Then, post one possible benefit and one possible risk of using personality assessment results to inform diagnosis. Then, explain one possible benefit and one possible risk of using projective assessment results to inform diagnosis. Research the Internet and Walden Library for a peer reviewed journal article that supports your response.
Be sure to support your postings and responses with specific references to the Learning Resources.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
