Case Study:
Paul is a 55-year-old computer technician. Paul says that his favorite thing about his job is that “I don’t fix computers; I fix people.” He is very popular at work and is often specifically requested. He expresses a profound humility and tends to make other people feel as if their ordinary experiences were extraordinary.
Paul has four children and two grandchildren. He likes to read poetry on his porch or play pickup football games with his sons and neighbors. Paul claims that he likes to travel, but his wife complains that he “never can get his act together” so they don’t travel much. However, in his home, brochures are affixed to the refrigerator with magnets.
Paul admits to taking stabs at novel-writing, painting, and sculpture, and he has a guitar he has never learned to play. About these incomplete goals, though, he says that he is only 55 and has plenty of time left. He considers himself an introvert and feels like he needs a great deal of private time to recharge after a busy day at work.
Evaluate Paul from each of the following perspectives: trait (focus on the Big Five), learning-theory, humanist, and sociocultural.
