Loyalty versus intelligence
Unfortunately but also fortunately, the issue of this essay happens to be in the middle of the company whose CEO am I and it is concerning me from years. In my administration are two different persons, two antagonistic characters. The first person, let’s call him Mr. M, is the current technical production CEO and the second person, let’s say Mr. D, is ex CEO, current technical development department chief and so that Mr. D is subordinated to Mr. M.
For a better understanding of the problem, I will make short characterizations of these two persons from a professional point of view.
The “ history “ of this problem began three years ago, at the same time with the reorganization of the chart , when due to a huge desire of having a better way of working, there were mixed the two sections : production and technical development in a single one, called “ Technical-Production”. At that moment, Mr.
M was the chief production officer ( CEO ) and Mr. D was technical development department chief, but the new technical production chief was called Mr. M and Mr.
D was retrograded in the function of lay-out technical department chief, but without a salary decrease.
Mr. M is a very dynamic person, with a lot of initiatives and he is very loyal to the company (he is the first who comes to the office and the last who leaves).
Moreover, he has a native intelligence, but he is not very educated. Also, he is very impulsive and has little deficiencies in interacting with subordinates. Apart from this, when he has a task to accomplish, you can count on him to do it right. His technical knowledge is under Mr. D, but he is one of the best organizers of the production line.
Mr. D is a very intelligent person, not only native but also educated. He is a professional 100% and his solutions have always good arguments. Mr. D comes every day to…...

Loyalty

...Loyalty is a noble quality that is found not only in human beings, but also in pet animals, such as dogs, horses or elephants. The word 'loyalty' means 'fidelity to law' which is generally applicable in the case of the Sovereign of the State. But in its broader sense, it means one's steadfast­ness in allegiance to a person or cause, or to one's country or sovereign. Loyalty involves obedience, sacrifice and compassion of the heart. Loyalty is a very broad term which may be applicable in case of one's family, locality or the country. A loyal per­son is ready to sacrifice even his own life for the sake of his master, friend, relative or the country. A loyal person bears a moral character, honest outlook, and disciplined manners. A truly loyal man cannot be bribed or tempted to deviate from his own path. He is like a stone pillar which is firm and strong to stand any force that may try to penetrate through it. He is absolutely dependable in all circumstances of life. In this world, there are only a few instances of loyal personalities, who are well-known. In those days, some of the kings and emperors were lucky to have certain loyal commanders who fought for their kingdom and saved their masters again and again from the hands of the enemies, even at the cost of their own lives. Loyalty is common among the courageous soldiers and servants. There are also instances of pet animals, such as dogs, horses or elephants, who, out of loyalty, gave their lives for the interest...

Intelligence

...Intelligence: Analyze Executive and Legislative Roles Mambiri Goldstein Affiliation Intelligence: Analyze Executive and Legislative Roles Compare and contrast the elements of Executive Order 12333: United States Intelligence Activities and the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004. The order and the act both serve to intensify security and intelligence extraction that intends to secure both national and homeland security (Jordan, 2009). They were both implemented under the executive designation of the sitting presidents as the leaders of the executive function. Executive order 12333 was biased towards empowering the Central Intelligence Agency in extracting information from national agencies, while Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004 was biased on physical and identification screening of individuals at U.S. border points with emphasis on air travel (Jordan, 2009). The former was established with the sole aim of strengthening CIA’s covert actions that leaned on espionage, while the latter was largely triggered by the September 11th terrorist attack. How do these executive and congressional orders affect intelligence activities? Executive and congressional orders affect intelligence through extending the responsibility and powers of the United States Intelligence Agencies (Chauhan, 2004).

Loyalty in the Odyssey

...Loyalty in The Odyssey Many human cultures assign values as well as worthiness to the existence of loyalty. As a Classical culture known for its emphasis of loyalty at home as well as abroad, the faithfulness of ancient Greeks in their relationships is exemplified in many Classical texts, such as Homer’s The Odyssey. In both ancient Greece as well as in The Odyssey, loyalty was the social norm because of the egalitarian nature of the city-state as well as because of the typical ancient Greek family structure. Not only because of social expectations as well as traditions was loyalty expected, but there was also an added pressure by one’s religious conviction such that it was believed that if the guests were in any way or manner mistreated, then the ancient Greek deities would punish the offender(s). There are several passages in Homer’s Classical text The Odyssey which illustrate these aspects of ancient Greek loyalty. In illustration of the faithfulness between Odysseus as well as his crew, there is a passage that notes loyalty in the crew-leader relationship: He saw the town as well as learned the minds of many distant men, as well as weathered many bitter nights as well as days his deep heart at sea, while he fought only to save his life, to bring his shipmates home. But not by will or valor could he save them, for their own recklessness destroyed them all- children as well as fools they killed as well as feasted on the cattle of Lord Helios, the Sun… (651).

Loyalty

...Loyalty is like a shadow it’s something that’s with you all of the time, but sometimes it’s hidden. Most people don’t show their loyalty hidden, but loyalty is something that’s not supposed to be hidden .To me loyalty is when someone is there for someone else. Loyalty is a characteristic many people should strive to have; it earns the trust and respect of many. A loyal person would never be able to fail someone because they are trustable. Loyalty is everywhere and there are many different kinds of loyalty. Loyalty to strangers is one of the many different kinds of loyalty. We have all showed loyalty to strangers at least once. When people follow rules somewhere either at school, work etc. This shows loyalty. Loyalty doesn’t only earn the respect of someone, but being loyal to a stranger show that you respect them even if you don’t know them. When we follow rules at some place it shows we are staying honest to the rules and the rule makers. Our honesty shows loyalty. Another type of loyalty is to friends. We all have friends, but there are many components to being loyal to your friends. When your friends tells you something and they expect you to keep it a secret, keeping this a secret shows loyalty. Not keeping the matter a secret will show disloyalty. Disloyalty will lose a friend’s trust and it will be really hard to regain a friend’s trust when it’s been lost. When a secret, which is supposed to be kept, gets out the friendship itself is in danger of breaking. Helping......

Loyalty

...Loyalty In Richard Russo’s novel Straight Man the theme of high and low loyalty in different characters plays an influential role throughout the novel. By high loyalty I mean a person who stays loyal to someone whom he or she loves, no matter what. By low loyalty I mean a person who does not stay loyal to people they are with and try to not reveal their disloyalty. We see characters of both types in Russo’s novel. We see characters who are loyal and we also the characters who are not loyal. Some characters in Straight Man show extremely high loyalty to people they love while other characters show extremely low loyalty. The main character Hank and his mother, Mrs. Devereaux, are very good examples of loyal people. Hank stays loyal to his wife Lily but he always has fear that his wife is not loyal to him and that she is having an affair. The reason why Hank thinks this way is caused by his father’s disloyalty when he left Hank and his mother when he was a little boy. He has a fear that Lily might leave him too one day. These thoughts that Hank has about his wife are wrong and shows his childhood trauma. That trauma caused him to lose his faith in other people, even to his wife. Even though that Hank tries to flirt with another woman he never thought of having an affair with her, which makes him a loyal person. Hank’s mother, on the other hand, even stays loyal to her betrayer husband who left her and her son and never came back for years. She thinks that he will come back and...

This paper serves as an added voice to the debate of Artificial Intelligence versus the Human Mind. The fundamental question being addressed is that of whether the rapid technological advancements that have and are still being made are stifling the growth of human innovation. The realization that technology is increasingly becoming a huge facet in the day to day lives of billions of people around the globe makes it ever more necessary to evaluate how dependent the world will be on it in the near future. For example, technology is used to determine weather patterns, determining the direction the global economy is taking and so forth. So it is pertinent for an evaluation to be made in relation to how detrimental an overreliance on Artificial Intelligence could be for the next......

Intelligence

...Intelligence is a construct, not a thing (eysenck 1979; Humphreys), as a result it is difficult to arrive ar a definition of ability/intelligence. Rather it is defined based on the behaviour that indicates various levels of intelligence. It is quite easy to say what make a person intelligent rather than what is intelligence. The concept of intelligence refers to a systematic individual difference in the performance of tasks that involves the manipulation, retrieval, evaluation, or processing of information. Ability Testing – Individual Test Widgor and Garner 1982 States the measurement of ability represent one of the most widespread applications of psychology in everyday life. Ability test range from those that looks at the general mental ability we refer to as intelligence to those that tap specific abilities such as spatial visualization. Measures of general intelligence have the broadest application in that they are used in educational, clinical, and work setting as aid in making a wide variety of decisions. The role of the examiner Psychological testing involves standardization, however in an individual intelligence test standardization is difficult to achieve. • The psychologist presence is seen as a stimuli that will affect ones behaviour • Characteristic of the examiner such as age sex, race physical attractiveness, social and non verbal skills affects a subject’s response. • The behaviour may change based on a response by the......

Besides the actual proprietary brand assets, such as patents and trademarks, other major elements like brand loyalty, perceived quality, brand associations, and others, underlie brand equity. A successful brand strategy must be based on creating brand loyalty. For achieving this goal consumers must be classified on a loyalty basis, while marketing strategies and mixes must be shaped accordingly. INTRODUCTION The success of a firm depends largely on its capability to attract consumers towards its brands. In particular, it is critical for the survival of a company to retain its current customers, and to make them loyal to the brand. Brand loyal consumers reduce the marketing costs......
