The purpose of this report is to analyze key emotional intelligence characteristics that define successful sales associates at CIBC, as well as analysis on my emotional intelligence skills and how they affect myÃ academic, professional, and social performance. My assessment was done online through Emotional Quotient Inventory. The study done by CIBC consisted of data collected over a six-month period and emotional intelligence scores done through Emotional Quotient Inventory. In conclusion, many areas of emotional intelligence, such as interpersonal skills and self-actualization, contribute greatly to the performance of the sales representatives. Companies should start using emotional intelligence for selection of their sales representatives, and this way, they can successfully select higher performing sales representatives. From my assessment, it shows that my top three strengths are interpersonal relationship, emotional self-awareness, and happiness; and my two weaknesses are social responsibility and self-regard. I should volunteer at the local community centre to become more socially responsible, therefore become more successful in every aspect of my life. 1.0 Introduction Recently, emotional intelligence is being regarding more and more importantly by employers, parents, and teachers. Success in school, at work, and in life depends on social and emotional skills and, unlike IQ, emotional intelligence can be improved. There are numerous areas where emotional intelligence can directly affect performance. This report discusses my emotional intelligence scores, and explains how my emotional and social functioning impacts my academic, professional, and personal performance. It also discusses the results from the study done by CIBC that determined key emotional intelligence characteristics that define successful sales associates. Since recruiting and training can be costly, employers always try to lower the turnover rate and increase the success rate. This report provides useful information about emotional intelligence that could solve this problem. My assessment was done online through Emotional Quotient Inventory. The study done by CIBC consisted of data collected over a six-month period and emotional intelligence scores done through Emotional Quotient Inventory. 2.0 My Emotional Intelligence Assessment By using Emotional Quotient Inventory, it helped me to identify my perceived frequency of emotionally intelligent behaviours in terms of fifteenÃ established emotional intelligence skills. 2.1 Analysis Among the fifteen emotional intelligence skills, five of which have been identified as significant areas, including top three strengths and two areas offering the greatest opportunity for personal development. Figure 1. My Five Emotional Intelligence Areas of Interest My top three strengths are interpersonal relationship, emotional self-awareness, and happiness; and my two weaknesses are social responsibility and self-regard. The Interpersonal Relationship component is defined as the ability to develop and maintain mutually rewarding relationships that are characterized by intimacy and the exchange of affection (Multi-Health Systems Inc., 2012). I am generally able to establish mutually satisfying relationships through communication that includes a balance of listening, empathy, and sharing of information. My results for the emotional self-awareness scale indicate that I am generally in touch with my feelings and that I usually know what my are feeling and why. In addition, I usually feel comfortable expressing my feelings and ideas to friends, fellow students, and co-workers without feeling threatened. Individuals who find their lives personally, academically, and socially rewarding are generally more successful in what they do (Multi-Health Syst ems Inc., 2012). People with happy dispositions are likely to be more proactive, resilient to adverse conditions, and less prone to stress symptoms. I am this type of person. I feel satisfied with my life, genuinely enjoy the company of others, and am able to derive pleasure from my daily routine. For the weaknesses, my results from the Social Responsibility scale suggest that that I am fairly self-aspiring and may put my own desires and needs above those of others. In some cases, my results reflect recognition that I sometimes act without full consideration of the effects of my behaviors on others and further suggest a lack of regard for others or for social regulations. Furthermore, I appear to be lacking self-confidence in many, if not most situations. It is during these moments of uncertainty when my functioning may suffer. These areas should be considered an area for improvement. 2.2 Reflection The results have been identified to help me maximize my social and emotional functioning by leveraging my strengths and by enhancing areas for development in order to achieve personal, academic, and professional success. Through the assessment, I have learned about my strengths as well as my weaknesses. What I should do to improve social responsibility is to take control of my emotions, since it is the most critical aspects of social responsibility. Also, to improve my self-regard, I should try to be optimistic and have confidence in myself. I also should try to be less critical towards my actions in order to increase my confidence level and self-regard. In the future, I will further apply what I have learned about myself, keep improving myself in areas such as self-regard and become more socially responsible. This way, by combining with the positive aspects of myself, I will be able to reach my potential and success in every aspect of my life. 3.0 Emotional Intelligence and performa nce at CIBC determined key emotional intelligence characteristics that define successful sales representatives. 3.1 Analysis The CIBC Global Private Banking and Trust team conducted a study where the emotional intelligence levels of the successful and unsuccessful sales representatives were assessed (Multi-Health Systems Inc., 2011). The results for this study were obtained over a six-month period. After the study, it turned out that many EI skill-sets are clearly conducive to higher performance. As shown in the chart below, the two key emotional intelligence skill-sets for success were interpersonal skills and self-actualization (Multi-Health Systems Inc., 2011). Interestingly, having a lower score in impulse control in combination with higher scores in other EI areas, translated into higher performance amongst sales representatives (Multi-Health Systems Inc., 2011). In addition, the difference in scores was very small for three areas: social responsibility, impulse control, and reality testing. Figure 2. Emotional Intelligence Skill-sets and Scores 3.2 Reflection Since I am working as a sales representative for the CIBCÃ¢â¬â¢s Petro Points Mastercard this co-op term, I have compared my results of the emotional intelligence assessment with the result from the study CIBC conducted. Also,Ã comparing my sales volume with the high and low performing sales representatives. Both successful sales representatives and I have high scores in areas of interpersonal relationship, happiness; and low score in social responsibility. In addition, my sales volume is in the top ten percent in the company. This shows that I am a high performing sales representative, and the emotional intelligence assessment accurately determines the factors affecting sales volume. Studies also have shown that emotional intelligence and leadership abilities are closely related. Emotional intelligence also determines the performance of debt collectors, insurance agents, and air force recruiters. 4.0 Conclusions From the study done by CIBC, it can be concluded that many areas of emotional intelligence, such as interpersonal skills and self-actualization, contribute greatly to the performance of the sales representatives. Interestingly, areas such as social responsibility, impulse control, and reality testing do not affect performance since the difference in scores between the high and low performing sales representatives were insignificant. My assessment closely matched the scores of high performing sales representatives, and my sales volume is considered high in my company. My EI scores and performance on the job are closely related. From my assessment of emotional intelligence, it can be concluded that my top three strengths are interpersonal relationship, emotional self-awareness, and happiness; and my two weaknesses are social responsibility and self-regard. By improving on my areas of weakness, I can be successful in every aspect of my life. 5.0 Recommendations Companies such as Royal Bank of Canada and Scotia Bank should start using emotional intelligence for selection of their sales representatives, this way, they can successfully select higher performing sales representatives. This method should be implemented by the end of 2013, since many companies such as CIBC already use this method for selection of employees. I should volunteer at the local community centre, Frank Mckechnie Community Centre, to improve my poor social responsibility score. I will do so from August 1st to August 31st, three hours a week, to help children and seniors who attend activities at the Centre. Below is the volunteer schedule I created. SinceÃ the Centre is always in need of volunteers, I can easily obtain this opportunity to improve my emotional intelligence level. Table 1.

Across the water from Nick and Gatsby is the Buchanan home, located on East Egg. Between New York and Long Island is the Valley of Ashes, a desolate wasteland essentially a dumping ground for modern and industrial waste.

An influential figure in architecture of the twentieth century, Luis BarragÃ ¡n made his mark by inciting an architecture of modern simplification of form and imbuing it with the warmth and vibrance of his native Mexico. He is celebrated for his mastery of space and light and use of vivid colors and textural contrasts in his works. Aside from his architectural design, he is noted for his distinct approach to landscape design, which sought to accentuate natural surroundings and enhance the local foliage and terrain of Mexico. Though his formal education is in engineering, his ever growing fascination with architecture impelled his desire to develop his own take on modernism and led him to modernize Mexican architecture. Luis BarragÃ ¡n was born on March 9th, 1902 in Guadalajara in Jalisco, Mexico. Son of wealthy, conservative parents, BarragÃ ¡n was raised on an estate owned by the family in the southern state of Jalisco. His parentÃ¢â¬â¢s would afford him opportunities that woul d soon shape his future as an influential Architect.

Victoria Clark Scarlet Letter Final Exam: Expressions of the Transcendentalists Ã¢â¬Å"Nobody knows this little RoseÃ¢â¬ by Emily Dickinson expresses how important a rose actually is to its environment and without the rose being of existence will affect the objects that are close to it. Dickinson goes onto say what is affected by the loss of the rose. Also in The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne he emphasizes how when a situation alters that there is a different way of life that comes with it. We will write a custom essay sample on Scarlet Letter Final Exam: Expressions of the Transcendentalists or any similar topic only for you Order Now Emily Dickinson and Hawthorne use change within an entity to utilize how it can affect the things closest to it. Dickinson uses a rose to express herself,Ã¢â¬ Nobody knows this little RoseÃ¢â¬ , to convey how important the rose is be to its environment when it dies. Dickinson says,7 Ã¢â¬ËÃ¢â¬Å"Only a bee will miss itÃ¢â¬ Ã¢â¬â¢ (Dickinson line 5), this means that when the rose should die that the bee will not have somewhere to land to reap the pollen from the rose. Hawthorne uses a black flower to emphasize what is growing upon ChillingworthÃ¢â¬â¢s heart. Hawthorne writes,Ã¢â¬ Ã¢â¬â¢ Let the black flower blossom as it mayÃ¢â¬ Ã¢â¬â¢ (119). TheÃ¢â¬ black flower blossomingÃ¢â¬ is used to also indicate the evil growing upon ChillingworthÃ¢â¬â¢s heart and how it has an affect on the way ChillingworthÃ¢â¬â¢s deformity. The authors both use the colors red and black to create an image in the readers mind so that they understand what the colors red and black mean. The image that the red rose puts an image of love in some minds or how miserable the bee might be after the departure of the rose. The word usage that Hawthorne uses to describe the black rose gives the image of death, and the black flower that that was growing over ChillingworthÃ¢â¬â¢s heart would be the one that kills him. Dickinson goes on to say Ã¢â¬Å"Ã¢â¬â¢ Only a Bird will wonderÃ¢â¬â¢Ã¢â¬ (Dickinson line 9), this line represents how if the bird uses the rose to indicate where food is, it will not be able to get food, and will wonder where the rose is and will have to find a new place to gather food. Hawthorne writes Ã¢â¬Å"Ã¢â¬â¢I will keep my secret, as I have thisÃ¢â¬ Ã¢â¬â¢ (53). As Hester and Chillingworth are talking to each other about who her child, PearlÃ¢â¬â¢s father actually is, Chillingworth tells her to keep their connection a secret, along with the secret his true identity. Along with the other secrets, Hester makes a vow to herself that she will never tell anyone who PearlÃ¢â¬â¢s father is. In addition, Hester keeping this secret throughout the book brings a burden upon her heart, as well as DimmsdaleÃ¢â¬â¢s. This colossal secret has makes Dimmsdale start to fast and beat himself with a scourge that is hidden in his closet. This change within Hester and DimmsdaleÃ¢â¬â¢s minds is affecting Pearl, Dimmsdale, Chillingworth and HesterÃ¢â¬â¢s lives. Dickinson and Hawthorne demonstrate how one minute secret or objectÃ¢â¬â¢s can change from the life of something or someone that is very close to it. Hawthorne says,Ã¢â¬ Ã¢â¬ËSo speaking she undid the clasp that fastened the scarlet letter, and taking it from her bosom threw to a distance among the withered leavesÃ¢â¬â¢Ã¢â¬ (Hawthorne 138). As Pearl has gone off to play she dress herself up in leaves and makes a scarlet letter of her own and has placed it upon her bosom. While Dimmsdale and Hester discuss their lives, Hester has a sudden outburst of self-assurance and wants to give up the scarlet letter to be free from the bondage it has brought upon her and her relationship with her child, Pearl. Hawthorne goes on to say,Ã¢â¬ Ã¢â¬â¢ PearlÃ¢â¬â¢, look down at thy feet! There! Ã¢â¬â Before thee! Ã¢â¬â on the hither side of the brook! Ã¢â¬â¢Ã¢â¬ ¦ Bring it hither! Ã¢â¬ ¦ Swallow it up for ever! Ã¢â¬ Ã¢â¬â¢(144). With the scarlet letter being off of HesterÃ¢â¬â¢s bosom Pearl does not recognize who Hester is, she sees her as if she is a stranger because Hester has had the scarlet letter on her bosom since Pearl can remember. Pearl also thinks that the scarlet letter is a good thing and that it is beautiful- Pearl wants a scarlet letter of her own. With the Scarlet letter being off of heaterÃ¢â¬â¢s Bosom Pearl cannot accept the change that her mother has made. Dickinson says,Ã¢â¬ Ã¢â¬ËOnly a Breeze will sighÃ¢â¬ Ã¢â¬â¢(Dickinson line 10) along with the other vital thing that the rose needs to survive the rose is also having an affect on the breeze. The breeze does not have anything to bump against anymore since the rose is not in the spot it was in before when it blew by. Hawthorne and Dickinson use these examples to show that when something or someone is use to seeing or feeling something a certain way; that when it changes they may or may not recognize the difference that has occurred with , in this case, the rose being missing from the breezeÃ¢â¬â¢s path and the scarlet letter being gone from HesterÃ¢â¬â¢s bosom. Nobody knows this little RoseÃ¢â¬ , Emily Dickinson concludes her poem by saying, Ã¢â¬Å" Ah Little RoseÃ¢â¬âhow easy/ For such as thee to die! Ã¢â¬ she understands that the rose meant a lot to the butterfly, bee, breeze ,and bird. She emphasized on how each and every thing was affected by the loss of someth ing that was very dear to them. The Scarlet Letter, Nathaniel Hawthorne uses the Scarlet Letter to call attention to how the Puritan society actually is. He explains how hard it is for a woman who has committed adultery with a secret that she cant reveal until the right time, a reverend who also committed adultery who has to keep the secret of adultery on his heart and sees his adulteress get punished for something that he participated in, and a man who was the seed to the tree that grew within The Scarlet Letter see what it was like to, in actuality, get a taste of his own medicine. Hawthorne began this story with a deep, dark picture of a jail entrance. He gave the reader a image of a gloomy, gray place and he saw it fit to put a rosebush into the story. Later on in the chapter you begin to understand the amazing significance of the rosebush next to the jail. He also dwells on how narrow-minded the puritans were, how they had different religious views. Public Punishment was also put into perspective when it came down to the crookedness of the Puritan society. Lastly, Hawthorne symbolized death and secrets to utilize spiritual breakthrough and mental freedom. Nathaniel Hawthorne has taken me on a emotional and theatrical rollercoaster. Emily Dickinson took a simple rose and highlighted on how natures creatures are affected by an absence of a friend. At the beginning she used the tone of a person who is taking a stroll and picks up a rose and is admiring how beautiful the rose is. As Dickinson goes on she say that she took it from its ways. Which means that after picking the rose she begins to see how the environment around it stop in their tracks and in a sense mourn over the loss of the rose. She also sees how the bee will miss it because of its sweet pollen that it needs to feed its family. Without the bee taking the pollen from the flower the bee cannot help produce for its family and new flowers when it goes to another flower. The Butterfly hastening from its far journey would usually lie down on the rose to rest but now the butterfly will have to lie itself upon another flower that it is not use to. Finally, Dickinson used the breeze to give imagery and a sense of smell; to paint a picture on how the breeze would look brushing up against the rose if it were in its regular spot. Also gives off the sweet smell of the rose. In Ã¢â¬Å"Nobody knows this little RoseÃ¢â¬ , Emily Dickinson creates a beautiful story in a twelve line poem. From the beginning to end , she creates a full-course dinner with one recipe. Emily Dickinson started off by gathering the ingredients, to slicing and dicing, to mixing all the ingredients together and smelling the beautiful aroma , to finally serving p a stunning creation of a poem. Nathaniel Hawthorne and Emily Dickinson have many similarities in their technique of writing. By reading a piece of their work; I have come to realize that they are two very dynamic authors that bring so many things into prospective about life, death, self-awareness, love and hate, and they put all of their thoughts into one small novel or poem.

The total number of the surveys has been further seen to be ranging from a total number of 200 to 400 samples for each model year (Consumerreports.org, 2017). Based on the consideration made in the previous consumer survey reports tit has been seen to be discerned that it is recommended that the consumers should avoid buying of the new cars in their first year of production. Some of the main recommendations to refute this have been seen with the following considerations: Improving the RMA or RGA services- The recent issues with Model X including mechanical fault such with falcon wing doors and latch on the third-row seat cannot be overlooked and Tesla needs to take appropriate actions to address the same. Return merchandise authorization (RMA) or Return goods authorization (RGA), it that part of the operations management which ensures that the product ordered is eligible to receive a replacement, refund, or repair during the product's warranty period. Tesla should allow the consumers to contact the manufacturer or distributor to receive the authorization to return any part which has been identified to be faulty. The company can seek to improve the existing RMA and RGA services by ensuring that the consumers are able to get these services receive free of cost for the assigned warranty period of Model 3. Some of the other considerations need to be made in terms of the various types of the services which are seen to be associated to the manufacturing pr ocess itself. This will be able to ensure that the products will be replaced even before the reaching the consumers. This can be done during the final testing of the products and ensure that the new cars are not equipped with any faulty equipments (Calvi et al., 2015). Improving the Return to vendor (RTV) services - The company needs to further ensure that specific steps needs to be taken in terms of the various types of the considerations which are seen to be related to the process of returning the goods to the original vendor of the products rather than sending the same to the associated distributor of the products. Tesla needs to particularly reduce the various types of the process which are related to the returning of the original goods to the original vendor rather distributor. The end consumers should be allowed to book the various types of the service which are seen to be related to the booking of RTV services. The company needs to ensure that in incidence of any failure of parts of the car a service deliver agent is able to pick the car from the destination of the user and it needs to en further ensured that the associated faults due to the manufactured process needs to be resolved free of cost (Heizer, 2016). Effective warranty services In order to refute the recommendation based on the Model X of the company it needs to ensure that the warranty services are best on compare to the competitors. It has been further discerned that the various types of the cost incurred to provide the after sales service will result in increasing customer loyalty and more consumer will look forward to invest in the new model of Tesla. Treat the Situation with Urgency- The Company needs to solve the various types to the previous issues which are seen to be associated the faults of the production in the previous Model X. It needs to further ensure that the different types the service provided by Tesla is delivered with utmost testing and reliability. The company needs to focus on the improvement of the quality of the consumer survey and be able to deliver the most reliable product with efficient design (Slack, 2015). Have a Positive Attitude- Tesla should look forward to regain the trust of the consumers not only by the process of the adding exclusive features to the new model but to ensure that Model 3, will be one of the best in its class. It needs to regain the faith of consumers, by ensuring that the new model of the car will be completely different in terms of reliability than its predecessors (Dow Dow, 2016). Managing the delivery of the new Model 3 during the initial production ramp up It has been seen that Tesla has been able to share the various types of information which are seen to be related to the delivery of the new Model 3 during the initial production ramp up. Tesla should set a target of 20,000 consumers in December. Tesla should take reviews from the customers for its first 30 orders of Model 3. It needs to further aim to produce 100 and further increase this to 1,500 in September. As the company has been seen to launch a total of 25,051 vehicles in the first quarter, it should double up the distribution process in the second quarter (Hull, 2017). The main geographic locations selected to deliver the products in Europe and North America. For the delivery of the efficient service the company needs to consider the partners which are seen in terms of the position of the new cars in the market. Tesla is having more than 30000 of them including long working in the factory located at Fremont. The models of the car have been shown off with 5,000 cars per week and the company should further consider 10000 cars in 2018 (Greentechmedia.com, 2017). The company needs to further select the various types of the value chain partners which are seen to be based on the component, partners and the various types of the other regulators. The enabling process of the company has been also seen to be based on the vehicle testing process, using of big data and testing of the testing of the battery in the Nevada plant. The core process of the company has been further seen to be based on the various types of the process like using the appropriate manufacturing and the assembling software, electric car and the precise technological knowledge. The customer service has been based on the customer brand evangelists, direct sales from the customer. The delivery service of Tesla can further take into consideration free charging stations. Some of the distribution channel of the company may include both online and retail store. The various types of the promotion done on the online sites and retail stores are considered as per the promotional strategies . The customer segment of the company has been further seen to be distributed based on the high end retail stores. The service process for the cost structure of the company needs to further consider the various types of the factors such as manufacturing, engineering, technology, real estate, maintenance and engineering salaries. The various channels of the revenue streams of the company have been further seen in from of sales of cars and partnerships. The position of the stores of the company in the designated geographical areas should be further based on the stores which are located in the high foot traffic with high visibility such as malls and shopping streets where the people are seen to visit on regular basis. This particular aspect will further allow the company to interact with the various types of potential consumers and it will be further able to learn about customer buying behavior. Tesla needs to further take various initiatives to train product specialists so that the consumers will be able to buy the relevant sub model under Model 3. Some of the main features which Tesla needs to ensure during the launch of the product has been seen in terms of ensuring the facilitation of the features such as auto steer, auto parallel parking, sun roof, superfast charging, Level 3 fast charging and facilities such as vehicle to grid capability. Some of the main consideration during the delivery process needs to further consider based on the facilities such as free car rental for 3 weeks every year, preheating/ pre-cooling app. Figure: Service process model for Model 3 (Source: Slack, 2015) Other suggestions for Tesla relative to ensuring the quality of their new Model 3 car The company should consider the various types of flaws in the Model X as a hard lesson in the manufacturing process of Model 3. The Model 3 should build procedure should follow simpler specification that it was present in the Model X of the ultra-luxury offerings. Tesla should consider releasing of the details associated to technical specifications, financing options and interior design options. The company should ensure that the company is able to publish sufficient details about the product so that the customer loyalty has been ensured. Some of the main form of the other consideration taken by Tesla needs to be implemented based on the refundable deposits. The company has been already seen to considering total refundable deposits of 400000; however it needs to ensure that the people are placed in the first line to buy the vehicles. Hence due to the immensely high number of the orders, Tesla should consider deliver cars to customers on a first-come-first-served basis (i.e., in the o rder of when deposits were placed) (USA TODAY, 2017). The company needs to further take into consideration that the first-come-first-served basis of scheduling. This type of service is seen to be based on attending the orders based on the arrivals without the individual preferences. By following a first-come-first-served basis of scheduling the company will be further able to ensure that the customers are able to get an equal opportunity in the delivery of the desired services. The company will be able to ensure that the various types of the delivery of the service also seen with utmost fairness. This particular strategy needs to further employ in the sales orders, in determining restaurant seating and of course the vehicle orders. It has been further considered that the scheduling of the services has been further seen to be based on the different types services associated to the pre-booking of the products. The various types of the considerations made in terms of the after sales service of the adoption of the RMA services should be sim ilarly considered on First cum first serve basis. The important aspect of the services has been further seen to be base on the various types the factors which has been take into consideration made with insurance of the vehicles. The company should take the initiative of to inform the customers of the insurance option from the time of purchasing (Krajewski et al., 2013). In order to ensure the more reliability in the manufactured products, the company needs to ensure the adoption of six sigma technique. The maturity of the manufacturing process based on six-sigma approach will be able to ensure that the manufacturing process is seen with 99.99966% in terms of the al the opportunities of the produce to be defect free in nature. The continuous integration of the six sigma will be able to ensure the continuous effort to achieve a predictable and stable measure in reduce the variation in the manufacturing method. Hence, the company will be able to deliver highest quality to the customers (Pyzdek Keller, 2014). Conclusion The study has been able to focus on the feedbacks of previous consumer survey reports of Model X and suggest the various types the considerations for Tesla relative to ensuring the quality of their new Model 3 car. The main form of the recommendation to refute avoiding new cars in their first year of production of the cars has been seen to be based on the Improving the RMA or RGA services. This has been identified as the recent issues with Model X including mechanical fault such with falcon wing doors and latch on the third-row seat cannot be overlooked and Tesla needs to take appropriate actions to address the same. Return merchandise authorization (RMA) or Return goods authorization (RGA). Tesla needs to further ensure that specific steps need to be taken in terms of the various types of the considerations which are seen to be related to the process of returning the goods to the original vendor of the products rather than sending the same to the associated distributor of the produc ts. For managing the delivery of the Model 3, the company needs to take reviews from the customers for its first 30 orders of Model 3. It needs to further aim to produce 100 and further increase this to 1,500 in September. As the company has been seen to launch a total of 25,051 vehicles in the first quarter, it should double up the distribution process in the second quarter. It has been further seen that the company should adopt first cum first serve service for the order and maintain quality aspect with the adoption of Six Sigma. References About Tesla | Tesla.

Ezra Pound On Gender Essay, Research Paper The followers is Pound # 8217 ; s Introduction to his interlingual rendition of Remy de Gourmont # 8217 ; s The Natural Philosophy of Love Il y aurait peut- ? tre une certain corr? lation entre La sexual intercourse compl? Te et profonde et lupus erythematosus vitamin D? veloppement degree Celsius? R? bral. Not merely is this suggestion, made by our writer at the terminal of his 8th chapter, both possible and likely, but it is more than probably that the encephalon itself, is, in beginning and development, merely a kind of great coagulum of venereal fluid held in suspense or modesty ; at foremost over the cervical ganglion, or, earlier or in other species, held in several coagulums over the scattered head nervus Centres ; and augmenting in changing velocities and measures into myelin oblongata, cerebellum and cerebrum. This hypothesis would possibly explicate a certain figure of as yet uncorrelated phenomena both psychological and physiological. It would explicate the tremendous content of the encephalon as a shaper or presenter of images. Speciess would hold developed in conformity with, or their development would hold been affected by the comparative discharge and keeping of the fluid ; this proportion being both a affair of measure and of quality, some animate beings gaining barely at all by the alluvial Nile-flood ; the baboon retaining nil ; work forces seemingly besoting themselves in some instances by surplus, and in other instances dispatching seemingly merely a excess at high force per unit area ; the idiot, or the mastermind, the strong-willed . I offer an thought instead than an statement ; yet if we consider that the power of the antherozoid is exactly the power of bring outsiding a signifier, and if we consider the deficiency of any other known substance in nature capable of turning into encephalon, we are left with merely one surprise, or instead one decision, viz. , in face of the littleness of the mean encephalon # 8217 ; s activity, we must reason that the spermatozoic substance must hold greatly atrophied in its alteration from lactic to coagulated and hereditarily coagulated status. Given, that is, two great seas of this fluid, reciprocally magnetized, the admiration is, or at least the first admiration is, that human idea is so inactive. Chemical research may hold something to state on the topic, if it be directed to comparing of encephalon and spermatophore in the nuclear submarine, to the syrupy binding of the bee # 8217 ; s fecundative liquid. I offer lone contemplations, possibly a few informations ; indicants of earlier prefigurations of an thought which truly surprises no 1, but seems as if it might hold been lying on the survey tabular array of any doctor or philosopher. There are hints of it in the symbolism of phallic faiths, adult male truly the Phallus or antherozoid charging, head-on, the female pandemonium ; integrating of the male in the male organ. Even oneself has felt it, driving any new thought into the great inactive vulva of London, a esthesis correspondent to the male feeling in sexual intercourse. Without any aside on feminism, taking simply the division Gourmont has given ( Aristotelean, if you like ) , one offers adult female as the accretion of familial aptitudes, better than adult male in the utile gestures , the flawlessnesss ; but to adult male, given what we have of history, the innovations , the new gestures, the extravagancy, the wild shootings, the impractical, simply because in him occurs the new upjut, the new bathing of the intellectual tissues in the remainder, in la mousse of the life sap. Or, as I am surely neither composing an anti-feminist piece of land, nor claiming disproportional privilege for the antherozoid, for the interest of symmetricalness ascribe a connate function to the ovule, though I can barely be expected to introspect it. A inundation is as bad as a dearth ; the ovular bath could still account for the refreshment of the female head, and the recharging, regracing of its traditional aptitudes ; where one adult female appears to profit by an alluvial clarifying, 10 twelve appear to be swamped. Contending that the intellectual fluid tried all kinds of experiments, and, striking affair, forced it into all kinds of signifiers, by flushs ; we have true in insect life a female predomination ; in bird, mammal and human, at least an increasing mate prominence. And these four of import subdivisions of the fan may be differentiated harmonizing to their evident head desire, or beginning of taking their species. Insect, public-service corporation ; bird, flight ; mammal, muscular luster ; adult male, experiment. The insect stand foring the female, and public-service corporation ; the demand of heat being present, the insect chooses to work out the job by hibernation, i.e. a kind of negation of action. The bird desiring uninterrupted freedom, plumes itself, Desire for ornament appears in all the subdivisions, adult male bring outsiding it most. The chiropteran # 8217 ; s secret appears to be that he is non the bird-mammal, but the mammal-insect: economic system of tissue, hibernation. The female rule being non merely public-service corporation, but utmost economic system, adult female, falling by this division into a male subdivision, is the least female of females, and at this point one escapes from a journalistic sex-squabble into the resistance of two rules, public-service corporation and a kind of adventurousness. In its subservience to the money fetish our age returns to the darkness of medievalism. Two osmies may do otiose eggless nests, but do non kill each other in contending which shall lodge the supererogatory honey therein. It is possibly no more foolish to travel at a anchorite # 8217 ; s command to retrieve an old burial chamber than to do new burial chambers at the command of finance. In his turning subservience to, and worship of, and web in machines, in public-service corporation, adult male rounds the circle about into insect life, the absence of flesh ; and may hold necessitate even of horned Gods to salvage him, or at least of a signifier of idea which permits them. Take it that usual idea is a kind of agitating or switching of a fluid in the syrupy cells of the encephalon ; one has seen electricity depriving the atoms of Ag from a plated knife in a chemical bath, with order and quickness, and garnering them on the other pole of a magnet. Take it every bit materially as you like. There is a kind of spirit-level in the ear, giving us our sense of balance. And dreams? Do they non go on exactly at the minutes when 1 has tipped the caput ; are they non, with their incoherent commixture of known and familiar images, like the pouring of a complicated honeycomb tilted from its perpendicular? Does non this spring exactly the needful mixture of familiar signifiers in non-sequence, the clutter of fragments each coherent within its ain bound? And from the popular address, is non the reasonable adult male called healthy , has he non his caput good screwed on or screwed on heterosexual ; and are non madmans and grouchs frequently recognizable from some curious passenger car or joust of the headstall ; and is non the mind ever pictured with his caput bowed into his manus, yes, but degree so far as left to compensate is concerned? The upward-jaw, head-back airs has long been explained by the comparative places of the myelin and the more human parts of the encephalon ; this need non be dragged in here ; nor do I intend to asseverate that you can bring around a moonstruck simply by keeping his caput degree. Thought is a chemical procedure, the most interesting of all transfusions in liquid solution. The head is an up-spurt of sperm, no, allow me change that ; seeking to watch the procedure: the sperm, the form-creator, the substance which compels the ovule to germinate in a given form, one microscopic, small letter atom, come ining the castle of the ovule. Thought is a vegetable, says a modern hermetic, whom I have frequently contradicted, but whom I do non wish to belie at this point. Thought is a chemical procedure in relation to the organ, the encephalon ; originative idea is an act like fertilization, like the male dramatis personae of the human seed, but given that dramatis personae, that interjection, I am absolutely willing to allow that the idea one time born, separated, in respect to itself, non in relation to the encephalon that begat it, does take an independent life much like a member of the vegetable land, blowing seeds, thoughts from the paradisial garden at the acme of Dante # 8217 ; s Purgatory, capable of lodging and shooting where they fall. And Gourmont has the phrase fertilizing a coevals of organic structures as mastermind fecundates a coevals of heads . Man is the amount of the animate beings, the amount of their inherent aptitudes, as Gourmont has repeated in the class of his book. Given, foremost a few, so as we get to our ain status, a mass of these spermatozoic atoms withheld, in suspense, waiting in the organ that has been built up through ages by a countless similar waitings. Each of these atoms is, we need non state, witting of signifier, but has by all counts a capacity for formal look: is non thought exactly a form-comparing and form-combining? That is to state we have the hair-thinning abstract idea and we have the concrete idea of adult females, of creative persons, of instrumentalists, the mockedly long-haired , who have made everything in the universe. We have the form-making and the form-destroying idea , merely the first of which is truly satisfactory. I don # 8217 ; t wish to be discriminatory, it is absolutely possible to see the abstract idea, ground, etc. , as the comparing, regimentation, and least common denominator of a battalion of images, but in the terminal each of the images is a small spoilt thereby, no 1 of them is the Apollo, and the shapers of this sort of idea have been called dryasdust since the beginning of history. The regiment is less interesting as a whole than any single in it. And, as we are being highly material and physical and animate being, in the aftermath of our writer, we will go forth old married womans # 8217 ; shots about the profuseness of hair, and its opportunity possible indicant or countenance of a possible neighbouring wellness beneath the skull. Creative idea has manifested itself in images, in music, which is to sound what the concrete image is to spy. And the idea of mastermind, even of the mathematical mastermind, the mathematical prodigy, is truly the same kind of thing, it is a sudden out-spurt of head which takes the signifier demanded by the job ; which creates the reply, and baffles the adult male numbering on the abacus. I question the comments about the sphex in Chapter 19, que le sphex s # 8217 ; est signifier? lentement , I query this with a strong belief for which anyone is at autonomy to name me moonstruck, and for which I offer no better land than simple self-contemplation. I believe, and on no better land than that of a sudden emotion, that the alteration of species is non a slow affair, managed by cross-breeding, of nature # 8217 ; s Belgian hares and mules, I believe that the species alterations every bit all of a sudden as a adult male makes a vocal or a verse form, or every bit all of a sudden as he starts doing them, more all of a sudden than he can cut a statue in rock, at most every bit easy as a locust or long-tailed Sirmione false mosquito emerges from its outgrown tegument. It is non even proved that adult male is at the terminal of his physical alterations. Say that the variegation of species has passed its most sensational stages, say that it had one time a great stimulation from the celerity of the Earth # 8217 ; s chilling, if one accepts the geologists # 8217 ; reading of that thermometric cyclone. The cooling planet contracts, it is as if one had some clay in a Sn bucket, and forced down the lid with such force per unit area that the can jump a twelve leaks, or it is as if one had the clay in a linen bag and squeezed ; simply as mechanics ( non numbering that one has all the known and unknown chemical elements chilling at the same time ) , but simply as mechanics this contraction gives energy adequate to squash flora through the pores of the fanciful linen and to detach certain atoms, go forthing them still a impulse. A organic structure should chill with diminishing velocity in step as it approaches the temperature of its milieus ; nevertheless, the Earth is still, I think, supposed to be warmer than the environing unknown, and is presumptively still chilling, or at any rate it is non proved that adult male is at the terminal of his physical alterations. I return to horned Gods and the aura in a few paragraphs. It is non proved that even the kind of drift provided by a shrinkage of planetal surface is denied one. What is known is that adult male # 8217 ; s great divergency has been in the devising of detached, resumable tools. That is to state, if an insect carries a proverb, it carries it all the clip. The following measure , as in the instance of the male organ of the nuclear submarine, is to turn a tool and detach it. Man # 8217 ; s first innovations are fire and the nine, that is to state he detaches his digestion, he finds a agency to acquire heat without let go ofing the Calories of the log by internal burning inside his ain tummy. The innovation of the first tool turned his head ( utilizing this term in the full sense ) ; turned, allow us state, his encephalon from his ain organic structure. No demand for greater aerial, a 5th arm, etc. , except, after a oversight as a circuit Delaware force, to demo that he is still Godhead of his organic structure. That is to state the crawfish # 8217 ; s long antennas, all kinds of extravagancies in nature may be taken as the consequence of a individual flush of idea. A individual out-push of a demand, made by a spermous sea of sufficient energy to project such a signifier. To project it as one electric pole will project a flicker to another ; to bring outside ; sometimes to move in this with more enthusiasm than cautiousness. Let us state rather merely that visible radiation is a projection from the aglow fluid, from the energy that is in the encephalon, down along the nervus cords which receive certain quivers in the oculus. Let us say adult male capable of bring outsiding a new organ, horn, aura, Eye of Horus. Give a encephalon of this power, comes the inquiry, what organ, and to what aim? Turning to folk-lore, we have Frazer on horned Gods, we have Egyptian statues, by and large supposed to be symbols , of cat-headed and ibis-headed Gods. Now in a crude community, a adult male, a volontaire, might put on the line it. He might desire prestigiousness, authorization, want them plenty to turn horns and claim a Godhead heritage, or to turn a cat caput ; Grecian doctrine would hold smiled at him, would hold deprecated his fanfare. With crude adult male he would hold risked a good trade, he would hold been deified, or crucified, or perchance both. Today he would be caught for a circus. One does non asseverate that cat-headed Gods appeared in Egypt after the 3rd dynasty ; the state had a long memory and such a phenomenon would hold made some splash in the vale. The horned God would look to hold persisted, and the vastly high caput of the Chinese contemplative as shown in art and the China images is another isolated grain of tradition. But adult male goes on doing new modules, or burying old 1s. That is to state you have all kinds of aptitudes developed without external alteration, which in an earlier biological province would perchance hold found animal look. You have every exploited hyper-aesthesia , i.e. every new signifier of mastermind, from the module of hearing four parts in a fugue absolutely, to the ear for money ( vide Henry James in The Ivory Tower, the transitions on Mr. Gaw ) . Here I merely magnify what Gourmont has indicated in Chapter 20. You have the visualizing sense, the stretch of imaginativeness, the mystics # 8211 ; for what there is to them # 8211 ; Santa Theresa who saw the microcosmos, bell, heaven, purgatory complete, the size of a walnut ; and you have Mr. W. , a wool-broker in London, who all of a sudden at 3 ante meridiem visualizes the whole of his letter-file, three 100 paginations ; he sees and reads peculiarly the missive at booklet 171, but he sees at the same time the full contents of the file, the whole thing about the size of two balls of loaf sugar laid level side to level side. Remains exactly the inquiry: adult male experiencing this protean capacity to turn a new organ: what organ shall it be? Or new module: what module? His first repudiation, flight, he has regained, about as if the repudiation, so recent in footings of biological science, had been committed in foresight. Instinct conserves merely the utile gestures. Air provides small nourishment, and anyhow the first great pleasance surrendered, the simple aspiration to mount the air has been regained and regratified. Water was neer surrendered, adult male with subaquatic longings is stiff, given a knife, the shark # 8217 ; s conqueror. The new module? Without so the fanfare of an organ. Will? The hypnotizer has shown the amour propre and Blake the uselessness of willing trifles, and black thaumaturgy its futility. The telepathic module? In the first topographic point is it new? Have non travelers ever told prick and bull narratives about its being in barbarian Africa? Is it non a module that adult male has given up, if non as useless, at any rate as of a really limited usage, a distraction, more bother than it is deserving? Missing a localizing sense, the barbarian knowing, if he does, what happens someplace else, but neer cognizing rather where. The module was possibly non worth the harm it does to concentration of head on some utile topic. Instinct preserves the utile gestures. Take it that what adult male wants is a capacity for clearer apprehension, or for physical refreshment and energy, are non these exactly the modules he is for of all time hammering at, possibly doltishly? Muscularly he goes easy, athletic records being invariably worn down by millimeters and seconds. I appear to hold thrown down spots of my note slightly at random ; allow me return to physiology. Peoples were long ignorant of the circulation of the blood ; that known, they appeared to believe the nervousnesss stationary ; Gourmont speaks of circulation nerveuse , but many people still see the nervus as at most a telegraph wire, merely because he does non shed blood visibly when cut. The current is interrupted . The school books of twenty old ages ago were instead obscure about lymph, and assorted secretory organs still baffle doctors. I have non seen the suggestion that some of them may function instead as fuses in an electric system, to forestall short circuits, or in some discrepancy or allotropic signifier. The antherozoid is, I take it, regarded as a kind of ether ; the encephalon is besides a ether, or at least in resonance with all parts of the organic structure ; the individual antherozoid demands merely that the ovule shall build a human being, the suspended antherozoid ( if my wild changeable rings the mark bell ) is ready to distribute with, in the actual sense, embodiment, enmeshment. Shall we postulate the mass of antherozoids, foremost accumulated in suspense, so specialized? Three channels, snake pit, purgatory, heaven, if one wants to follow yet another nomenclature: digestive elimination, embodiment, freedom in the imaginativeness, i.e. dramatis personae into an exterior formlessness, or into form stuff, or simply inventive visually or possibly musically or possibly fixed in some other sensuous dimension, even of gustatory sensation or smell ( there have been possibly originative cooks and perfumers? ) . The dead arduous digest and comparing of other work forces # 8217 ; s dead images, all this is mere labor, non the spermatozoic act of the encephalon. Woman, the curator, the heir of past gestures, clever, practical, as Gourmont says, non imaginative, ever the best adherent of any discoverer, has been ever the enemy of the dead or arduous signifier of digest, abstraction. Not sing the procedure ended ; taking the single mastermind as the adult male in whom the new entree, the new overplus of spermatozoic force per unit area ( quantitative and qualitative ) upshoots into the encephalon, alluvial Nile-flood, conveying new harvests, new innovation. And as Gourmont says, there is merely concluding where there is initial mistake, i.e. failing of the jet, rolling hunt. In no instance can it be a inquiry of mere carnal measure of sperm. You have the adult male who wears himself out and weakens his encephalon, reverberation of the Pongo pygmaeus, evidently non the gifted screen ; you have the contrasted instance in the type of adult male who truly can non work until he has relieved the force per unit area on his spermous canals. This is a inquiry of physiology, it is non a inquiry of ethical motives and sociology. Given the spermatozoic idea, the two great seas of fecundative affair, the encephalon lobes, reciprocally magnetized, aglow in their ain cognition of their being ; whether they may be expected to seek exterior lust , or whether they are traveling to reiterate Augustine anthem, is non in my legal power. An exterior Eden might non tempt them La B? tise humaine est La seule chose qui Donne une Idaho? e de l # 8217 ; infini , says Renan, and Gourmont has quoted him, and all flesh is grass, a superior grass. It remains that adult male has for centuries nibbled at this thought of connexion, confidant connexion between his sperm and his thinking, the abstainer has tried to keep back all his sperm, the enticement, the ignis fatuus possibly, of desiring to super-think ; the dope-fiend has tried opium and every inferior to Bacchus, to acquire an excess boot out of the organ, the mystics have sought the glow in the tap house, Helen of Tyre, priestesses in the temple of Venus, in Indian temples, isolated priestesses in the streets, unuprootable usage, and likely with a footing of saneness. A sense of balance might demo that asceticism agencies either a drouth or a crowding. The liquid solution must be kept at right consistence ; one would state the due proportion of liquid to syrupy atoms, a good circulation ; the existent quality of the screen or centrifuge, numbering possibly most of all ; the balance and recollective media. Possibly the hint is in Propertius after all: Ingenium nobis ipsa puella fecit. There is the whole of the 12th century love cult, and Dante # 8217 ; s metaphysics a small to one side, and Gourmont # 8217 ; s Latin Mystique ; and for image-making both Fenollosa on The Chinese Written Character, and the paragraphs in Le Probl? me du Style. At any rate the wrangle between cerebralist and viveur and ignorantist terminals, if the encephalon is therefore conceived non as a separate and dried-out organ, but as the really fluid of life itself.
