Research indicates that characteristics we are born with have more influence on our personality and development than any experience we may have in our life. Which do you consider to be the major influence?

Study points out that the people born with certain inherent traits have an astounding effect on their personality and growth, in comparison with experience and knowledge they gain during their lifetime. In my opinion, the qualities which a person inherits at the time of birth do affect the building of a personality, but gaining experience and knowledge has a profound influence in shaping the personality.

Personality is a set of characteristics that reflect the way we think and act in a given situation. It is formed by four basic elements that are physical environment, heredity, culture and particular experiences. An individual develops his personality with a combination of these four aspects. When an individual is encountered with different situations he responds to them uniquely. These responses develop into habits and thus form a personality type. For example when Mahatma Gandhi was humiliated and thrown out of the train for riding first class, he responded strongly in a non violent way, and started a freedom struggle. That was a turning point in his life that shaped his personality and destiny.

With the new experience, a person develops new habits, develops etiquette and forms new attitudes. These are the stepping stones to form a personality. It has been noted that, whatever a child imbibes during the first seven years, forms the foundation of his personality. The new observations and experiences make a lasting impression on his mind. For instance Thomas Edison was expelled from the school during his childhood, but his mother didn’t make him realize about the fact. She encouraged and taught Edison at home, who turned out to become one of the world’s greatest scientist.

To recapitulate, it can be said that genetic traits do affect the personality of a person to some extent, but the environment in which he is brought up and the experiences that a person go through, deeply impact the personality.

Essay – How widely do you think the problem spreads that people spend too much time on work than their personal life and experience time shortage? What problems will it cause?

Image result for spending too much time at work

The issue that people are putting long hours of work and spending less time towards their personal life is widespread, because of cut throat competition, rising economic inequality and travelling far for work. Because of this phenomenon, it leads to decreased productivity, sour relationships and rise in health problems.

In today’s rat race, majority of the people feel financial insecure, which leads them to work overtime to prove their work to their employers. Secondly, sometimes it is very important for the people to do more than one job to keep both ends meet. Ferocious competition and meeting deadlines has further compelled the workers to spend more time at the workplace. For instance, people working for BPO’s and KPO’s often put in extra hours of work to earn additional income.

Spending longer hours in workplace often leads to health problems like, stress, depression, heart problems, obesity and back pain. In India certain types of jobs like in police and other armed forces, people have to spend long hours of duty and away from home for a long time. This often sets in lots of stress and depression among the soldiers which has even led to committing suicide. Secondly, spending less time with the family often sours the relationships and can lead to divorce. Moreover, children can often indulge in bad habits in the absence of crucial parental guidance. Lastly, putting in more time at work can reduce the productivity of the workers. It is said “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy”

Finally, it can be concluded that giving time for personal life is also very important, because it rejuvenates and prepare people to cope up with all adversities at the workplace.

Essay – Marketing strategy for some companies is, offers and discounts, for some it is reputation. Should consumer goods companies concentrate special discounts and offers to promote their products or they should focus on reputation? What do YOU think is more important?


Marketing strategy plays a crucial role in the growth of a firm. Many companies face this moot question that whether to focus on offers and discounts or to build stronger reputation. I would advocate to invest in special discounts and offers on regular intervals. This will aid in grabbing attention of more consumers and foster company’s turnover periodically. 

To begin with, companies have to spend on advertising to promote special offer campaigns. For example, when Nestle promotes its Maggie noodles at special discounted price, it attracts more buyers than its standard price advert. This proves that Nestle will not only promote their product but also build a reputation in the market. 

Moreover, short term discounts can boost up revenues of a company. Take for instance; Startups usually hit the market hard with weekly or monthly offers. This strategy usually generates decent revenues for that period. This example evidently shows that special offers can effectively contribute to the growth of a company. From this, it can be said that the former strategy can kill two birds in one shot.

In a nutshell, investing in discount and offers will reap more benefits as it also contributes to publicity for companies. Thus, it’s in the best interest of companies to promote their products in this manner. Therefore, I strongly believe adoption of this strategy can lead to expeditious progress.

Image result for experiential learning

Gaining knowledge and skills through practical and training, is more productive in comparison to learning only through textbooks. I agree to the above statement because it is the most effective way to remember the lesson, a person can learn how the bookish knowledge can be effectively utilized and opens up diverse ways to demonstrate creativity.

A student learns numerous lessons from the books, but experimenting that education will have a deeper impact on his mind. He would remember those lessons throughout his life. For instance in most of the Engineering curriculum a six months of practical and industry exposure is mandatory. This helps the students to utilize his bookish knowledge effectively in field.

Utilizing the knowledge gained through the education and implementing it practically, will help the student to apply that learning in his daily life. Thus the concepts are clarified when put to practical purpose. In this way a student develops skills and gain experience. For example, students studying in IIM (Indian Institute of Management) in India, learn the business strategies through simulating hundreds of case studies and comes up with diverse solutions. These solutions are then implemented in various business houses to achieve success.

Practical learning develops and brings out the creativity among the students. Instead of learning already established facts, they are encouraged to come with variety of solutions to a particular problem. A lot of inventions and discoveries are happening across the globe because of the creative minds which the students have developed. Steve Jobs, Bill Clinton, Mark Zuckerberg, Henry Ford, Thomas Edison are few persons who have used their creativity to contribute to the mankind.

To encapsulate, learning through books and implementing the knowledge accordingly to create something new is the best way for effective learning.

Essay – In a cashless society, people use more credit cards. What are the advantages and disadvantages of this phenomenon?

Image result for credit cards

In today’s generation public is using the plastic money instead of cash. In my opinion the advantages of using credit cards removes the risk of carrying cash, can be used for all types of transactions globally and it is easy to carry. Simultaneously, the disadvantages includes its misuse, can be easily hacked and involves paying up high interest rates.

First of all, using plastic money removes the risk of carrying cash. Moving cash is a very expensive business, which involves lots of security and people are always under a threat of being looted. Credit cards and digital transactions minimize the danger of carrying high volumes of cash. Secondly, plastic money opens up many avenues for transaction globally. For instance, nowadays any product or services can be purchased globally, just by swiping the card or by digital payment. Also it is very easy to carry as it fits in the pocket and can be processed from any device.

On the contrary, there has been lots of instances where credit card has been misused. Credit card cloning is now a global phenomenon and millions of people have been deceived by it. Simultaneously people and organizations have been the victims of cyber hacking which have resulted in huge financial loss. No doubt, nowadays cyber laws have been introduced but there has been a tremendous rise in the online fraud which cannot be detected easily. In addition to it, credit cards are not accepted everywhere, especially in rural areas where there is less internet coverage. Lastly, using credit card is not always free, because it involves hidden charges and certain transaction charges which the customer has to bear. Also using the credit card is very tempting and often leads to needless shopping which increases the burden of the consumer.

To sum up, credit cards have their own pros and cons and it is up to the person how to make the best utilization of the technology.

Essay – Whether studying films at school is as important as studying literature?

Whether studying films at school is as important as studying literature?

Analyzing motion pictures while at a place of education is as vital as learning literature. I agree with the statement because studying films helps in developing creativity, is a source of inspiration for many students and it helps the child in choosing correct life principles which can shape the career of the student.

First of all, while researching films students can get attracted towards the theme of the film and get inspired to create and innovate in various fields of acting, writing, composing songs, singing, dancing and even choreography. Many leading directors of Bollywood were once students and when exposed to the films, they chose the career out of it. For instance Shahrukh Khan, Silverster Stallone are successful stars in movies just because of their original work.

Secondly, films are a source of inspiration for many students. Mahatma Gandhi took a vow to always speak the truth while he was watching the play of King Harish Chandra. This little spark of enthusiasm, if taken care and nurtured, can shape the personality of the students.

Further, many times the students pick up their lessons from the movies they watch. So it is essential for the schools to include inspirational films in the curriculum of the school. Movies like Benhur, Apollo 13, Life of pie, Dead Poet’s Society and Pursuit of Happiness are a great source of information and lessons for the students.

Finally, while studying literature one can only imagine the stories, but while viewing the film a student can see and remember the stories and the themes for a longer time. Accordingly, the literature films are also as essential.

Parents should be held legally responsible for their children’s acts. What is your opinion? Support it with personal examples.

Parents should be held legally responsible for their children’s acts. What is your opinion? Support it with personal examples. (295 words)

Parenting is a vital role in molding the behaviors of the children. Sometimes kids behave in an unacceptable and unpredictable manner which they might have learnt from their parents.Some people think that parents are responsible for their children’s behaviors, while others argue that parents cannot take responsibility for their children’s attitudes.I am inclined to believe that parents should be held legally responsible for their children’s acts. The following paragraphs will analyze the impacts of kids’ behaviors and suggest the importance of parent’s role in raising their children.

First of all, children are like a sponge, they absorb and imitate everything they observe. Further, they spend more time with their parents in childhood. So mostly they learn language, culture and manners by observing their parents.If parents are having faith and good habits, their children will become more likely with vision in life and have good habits.For instance, after Thomas Alva Edison’s school teacher called him mentally ill in a letter, Edison’s mother hid the letter from the young inventor and homeschooled him so that he could reach his full potential.

Second of all, are responsible parenting involves not only taking care of children’s basic needs but also teaching social behavior and discipline to them. Furthermore, parents should take accountability for the damages caused by their children in the society. For example, the leading actor Jackie Chan had taken responsibility for his son’s drug use and apologized to public on behalf of him by telling that he failed to be a good father.

In conclusion, the foregoing discussion propounds the view that the parents are solely and legally responsible for their children’s act.Further, it is expected that the people make cognizance of the fact and teach their children good values and moral responsibilities.
