The consequences of organizational citizenship in business

What is organizational citizenship?

Organizational citizenship behavior is defined as behavior in a workplace environment which benefits the workplace while not being directly required or recognized by a formal reward system. Instead, organizational citizenship behavior is the product of an instilled sense of community and citizenship in the workplace, an individual’s personality, and their personal decision making. Organizational citizenship behavior is referred to as “citizenship” behavior because the behavior which is defined under this category is intended to benefit a company and, more importantly, benefit the other individuals who are involved in the work life of the person exhibiting organizational citizenship behavior. These behaviors are not necessary or critical in order to perform a job; however, they can still enhance work performance and create a positive and more productive work environment.

The Psychology Behind “The Deal”

Why deals attract us?

Business is about making money—so why is it that so many businesses have seemingly constant “great deals,” “bargain bin deals,” and “extreme price-cut deals”? Because, more often than not, these seemingly too-good-to-be-true deals are actually benefiting the business, not the consumer. Every year, countless numbers of businesses take advantage of the psychological effect that “the deal” has on consumers. This “deal” effect can actually influence people into spending more money and into spending money that they otherwise would never have spent were it not for the psychological pull that a good deal has on people’s minds.

The psychological signs of suicide


Suicide is defined as the act of an individual killing themselves. Suicide is a complex action which is often the result of a myriad of different factors. Personal experiences, mental health, relationship problems, and a host of other factors can all lead someone into feeling that suicide is a necessary, acceptable, or practical response to their experiences. There is no one reason for committing suicide, but the fact remains that suicide is an action which can affect not only the person who has chosen to kill themselves but that individual’s friends and family, who are often left to handle the complex psychological trauma which often occurs after someone commits suicide.

The Top Three Principles of Neuro linguistic programming

What is neuro linguistic programming?

Neuro linguistic programming is defined as a particular approach most often used in psychotherapy forms of communication, and in the improvement of personal and interpersonal development. The basis of neuro linguistic programming is that the connection between neurological processing in the brain and behavioral patterns allows for people to develop themselves and influence those around them through communication that takes advantage of these neurological processes. Neuro linguistic programming can take many forms; the overall umbrella of neurolinguistic programming includes methods and techniques which can be used during hypnotherapy, regular psychotherapy, retail or business marketing, regular interpersonal communication, as well as self-improvement, and so on. Neurolinguistic programming is typically considered to be a pseudoscience by those in the scientific community because many of its methods and techniques are not based on hard scientific fact but on subjective data and the study of overall social and personal traits--for example, one of the bases for the Milton Model, a common neuro linguistic programming model, involves taking advantage of the conscious mind's distraction in order to tap into the unconscious mind. Although this method does not have any strict scientific basis, it was developed after research and study on social and behavioral patterns.

Task-oriented work procedures

Task oriented procedures are the tasks or activities which make up a position

The process of job analysis, or the process of characterizing and identifying the content of a particular job, relies on an analyst’s ability to define and separate work procedures within any given position. Every job is made up of various work procedures, which include but are not limited to: assignments, tasks, requirements, or other procedures which may be a part of a workday. A job analysis relies on defining these procedures in order to better define what makes up a particular position or job within a company or within the workforce.

Signs and symptoms of anorexia nervosa

What is anorexia nervosa?

Anorexia nervosa is an eating disorder characterized by the refusal to maintain an expected body weight through food restriction which is caused by a distorted body image and a fear of gaining weight. Anorexia nervosa is typically found more often in females than in males, although both men and women can be diagnosed with anorexia nervosa. In the past decade, the number of diagnosed cases of anorexia nervosa has steadily risen and the average age of anorexia nervosa ones has steadily decreased—the average age of onset for anorexia nervosa is now 9 to 12 years of age, whereas it was previously 12 to 17 years of age. Anorexia nervosa is considered to be one of the most fatal mental disorders because of the extreme complications that lowered body weight, food restriction, and other behaviors associated with anorexia nervosa—such as consuming diet pills or syrup of ipecac —can cause. Studies have shown that anorexia nervosa may be easier to treat when it is diagnosed relatively early on in the disease, rather than when it has been developing for years. It is therefore important for both professionals and family members to understand the various signs and symptoms that can help spot a potential case of anorexia nervosa in a patient or loved one.

Clinical depression

Clinical depression What is clinical depression?

Clinical depression, also known as major depressive disorder, recurrent depressive disorder and major depression, refers to a mental disorder which is characterized by periodic episodes of intense low mood, low self-esteem and a general loss of interest in daily activities which might normally be enjoyable. Clinical depression encompasses a range of mood lowering behaviors which result in an overall low-mood for a period of time; clinical depression, in some instances, tends to occur in brief episodes which repeat or reoccur at random.
During a clinical depression episode, or a major depressive episode, individuals with this disorder are more likely to have suicidal thoughts or contemplate committing suicide. Some people with major depressive disorder report experiencing hallucinations or even delusions during a major depressive episode, although these only occur in the most severe cases of clinical depression.
