Journal portfolio Ryan Wu Due date: 6th December 1. Executive Summary The most powerful finding in the study of evolutionary psychology is gender differences, which are mainly manifested in temperament and cognitive ability. Gender differences in temperament and cognitive abilities may be the product of evolution, which are the roots of both sexes engaging in different professional activities (Savić, 2007). In fact, there are many differences in temperament and cognitive abilities between men and women, and there are mainly those that have an impact on professional activities. Firstly, competition and domination. Male prefer to participate in competition than women, and when competitive factors are added to the task, male's behavioral motivation is enhanced (Tiefer & Kring, 1995). Secondly, male prefer sexive behaviors to female, and gain power, influence, or resources through these actions to achieve or maintain a relatively high status. Thirdly, take risks. Men are more adventurous than women in physical or social terms. For example, in racing, diving, gliding and other activities, the proportion of men is higher. In the risky occupational field, the proportion of women is also lower (Tiefer & Kring, 1995). Fourthly, social orientation. Women are more “human-oriented, more sensitive to relationships with others, and men are more “object-oriented”, they are more concerned with job performance, skills, independence and overcoming others (Tiefer & Kring, 1995). Gender differences in competition, domination, risk-taking, society and various cognitive abilities can have great impacts on career interests and career choices. In the sports industry dominated by competition, dominance, and risk-taking, male athletes are clearly receiving more attention and even preferential treatment than female athletes. Based on the discrimination of tennis player Serena Williams remonstrates, this paper analyzes the impact of gender inequality on organizational behavior (Litchfield et al, 2018). Serena Williams's move at the women's singles final of the US Open in early September sparked widespread debate. 20-year-old Japanese player Osaka Naomi defeated her idol Serena Williams to win the championship with a total score of 2:0 (Litchfield et al, 2018). However, Serena Williams had a fierce dispute with the referee because she suspected that the referee had unfairly sentenced her three times and that there was gender discrimination (Litchfield et al, 2018). The two sides were out of control, and the chaos on the field caused the game to be interrupted. For players and referees, different identities lead them to different perspectives. There are many disputes and differences in the tennis world today, whether it is the ATP Men's Tour and the WTA Women's Tour, or the Grand Slam and Low Level events. Whether all tennis matches should be the same as the United States, with five wins and three wins; should male athletes, like female athletes, stipulate high temperature lines to determine whether the competition is going on; should athletes be allowed to dress freely, for example, Wimbledon Championships strictly require athletes to wear white clothes (Litchfield et al, 2018). The French Open has no regulations, but Serena Williams used to wear black tights on the French Open. She was officially criticized. Whether a female athlete can change a jersey at a specific position on the court like a male athlete, need a fair determination. The sports industry needs a professional supervisor to solve these problems. He is neither an athlete nor a referee. His task is to ensure the fairness and fairness of the game from the perspective of a third party. Psychologists define emotion as a complex pattern of physical and mental changes, including physical arousal, sensation, cognitive processes, and behavioral responses, which are responses to a unique situation perceived by the individual. People from individualistic cultures are more likely to express their negative emotions than from collectivist cultures. In order to analyze the impact of gender inequality on organizational behavior, this paper also introduces the concept of Stress. Stress is a reaction mode. When a stimulus event breaks the balance and load capacity of an organism, or exceeds the individual's ability, it is reflected in stress. Anticipatory coping means that coping behavior can occur before a potential stressful event. Problem pointing (directly facing the problem) and emotional pointing (to alleviate the discomfort caused by stress) are two different solutions. There are two ways to cope with stress psychologically. One is to re-evaluate the nature of the stressor itself, and the other is to reorganize your cognitive structure of stress response. 2. Photographs Transactional theory of stress explains how stressful demands are primarily perceived and appraised, and how people respond to these perceptions. The table shows that coping can involve many different types of activities to deal with stress, these activities can be grouped into four broad categories based on two dimensions. The first dimension refers to the method of coping (behavioral vs Cognitive), and the second dimension focuses on coping (through problem solving vs regulations of emotions) There are four distinct responses that correspond to our primary behavioral tendencies. These are: Fight, Flight, Freeze Stress diagram with impact on body, mind, behavior and emotions Consequences of Stress are as follows. Physiological Symptoms mean that specialists in the health and medical sciences. Psychological Symptoms mean that the simplest and most obvious psychological effect. Behavioral Symptoms mean that changes in productivity, absence and turnover 3. OB and You 3.1 Reflection on Assessments/Exercises With the development of society and the increasingly fierce competition, the completion of many tasks has increasingly relied on collective wisdom and strength. As the “only child” in China, the concept of teamwork is unfamiliar to me. In fact, team building requires personal benefits to be realized through the realization of team benefits. This requires members of the team to have a high level of professional ethics and teamwork. In this assessment, the deepest feeling I feel is team awareness. A team is the lowest-level organization that can produce positive synergies through the joint efforts of its members. The combat effectiveness of a team depends not only on the level of each member, but also on the closeness of collaboration and cooperation between members and members, and the platform that the team provides to members is also crucial. Secondly, the same purpose as our group presentation, I also gained insights about gender discrimination in this assignment. The number of women in higher education in the world is increasing, and the number is getting closer to men. However, even though women have the same higher education and the same workplace experience, in the business world, women at the top of the company are still very rare (Brewer, Mitchell & Weber, 2002). The number of women employed is unprecedented, but the two major gaps between genders still exist: Firstly, the pay gap. Even with the same qualifications, from the same background, there is still a pay gap between men and women (Brewer, Mitchell & Weber, 2002). The second is the gap in leadership positions. No matter from what angle, the ratio of male to female in the workplace is unbalanced. Although organizational behavior analyzes the impact of gender differences on organizational behavior from a physiological and psychological perspective, gender inequality in the field of work is due to the fact that some corporate systems and corporate structures were designed primarily for male. Not only in the sports world, companies also have to make adjustments to make them more flexible, innovative, and more contemporary, in order to better adapt to today's gender-diverse workplace. 3.2 Description of Job experience that links to an OB concept The success or failure of the retail and catering industries is largely determined by its level of service, which has the lowest attendant income and the highest liquidity (Lewis & Fagenson-Eland, 1998). Reputation, which in turn affects business performance. I used to work part-time at Starbucks. I found that Starbucks used a two-factor model of organizational behavior very well. Health care is the factor about work conditions and environment, including remuneration package, management level, physical work environment, interpersonal relationships and company policy (Poulin & Boivin, 2000). Incentive is the factor about the work, including work challenges, work achievement, development of job, opportunities for promotion and personal success. Firstly, the Starbucks work environment is comfortable, and it has a working atmosphere that makes people feel relaxed and happy. In addition, Starbucks' salary is better than its peers. Secondly, for incentives, Starbucks encourages employees to express ideas and taking employees’ suggestions seriously, which reflects a kind of respect for employees, thus enhancing their sense of ownership. 4. OB and the world I chose a case in which American universities discriminate against Chinese and Asian students. According to a Princeton University study, Asian students need 140 points higher than whites to be admitted to the same university in a college entrance exam with a total score of 1600. The five most famous high school Asian students in New York City account for a high proportion. For example, the most famous Stuyvesant High School, the proportion of Asian students is 72.5% (Tsai, 2008). New York City Mayor has therefore requested changes in the law and admissions policies, thereby reducing the proportion of Asian students. No country is perfect, and no system or society can handle affairs perfectly, as is the United States. If countries can interfere with each other, then on certain issues, Asian governments have reason to pressure the United States to improve. I also chose Baltimore resident Clifford to be accused of rape six times, but four times without a case of conviction. It is generally believed that the so-called "fair trial" is more important than arresting and punishing real criminals. The United States has such a judicial rule: the jury should not hear other crimes and allegations involving the accused (Ogren, 2015). The reason is that if the jury hears the murder of the accused committing other horrendous crimes (such as rape or theft), the jury may assume that the accused is guilty, even if he has not committed murder, the jury will convict him. Facts have proved that this principle has many loopholes and has led to many serious misjudgments. In the third case I chose Affirmative Action. The so-called Affirmative Action was born in the 1960s. An administrative order against discrimination, which began in 1961 with President Kennedy, was later revised and became an important bill affecting countless Americans today. In the early 70s of the last century, the University of California, Davis Medical School proposed a dual enrollment plan to increase the proportion of vulnerable groups (Friedenberg, 1997). Alan Bakke, a white man who filed an application with the school's medical school, was rejected. Bakke believes that the enrollment plan violates the equal protection clause and treats people differently. In fact, the University of California has the right to implement special policies that diversify student sources and campus academic environments. This does not violate the equality protection clause. Races can be considered as a factor when recruiting freshmen, but race cannot be the only factor.

Organizational Macro-behavior



Organizational macro-behaviour
Organizational behaviour refers to the ongoing forms of business management
researches which are meant to evaluate and examine the systems of operation in a specific
company, on the bases of the relationships between the employees and the management and also
on the leadership approaches implemented (Harmon, 2019). The study of the organizational
behaviour is comprised of the various elements which affect the relations with an organization's
setting, including the psychological approaches of the human adaptations and responses to the
multiple challenges in the operations. Due to the development of organizational behaviour, there
are several discoveries on the organizational theories of management and models of business
techniques that have been discovered to enhance productivity in the firms. Analysis and
evaluation of the corporate behaviour help to provide awareness to the employees on how they
are supposed to relate and perform within the organization. Also, it helps in the understanding of
the key motivations of the employees in a workplace, to enable improvements in their
performances and even in the teamwork. Besides, organizational behaviour helps in the
establishments of strong relations and loyalty with the employees and the management team in
authority. Therefore, the macro-organizational behavioural study refers to the performance of the
entire organization, including the employees and the leadership an...
