The paper "The JET Participation Program " is a perfect example of a business case study. The selected character for the purpose of this report is Kelly. Kelly had always desired to work or rather she always had a great interest in Japan as she had studied Japanese from her high school days and also had visited Japan and always wanted to go back so as to advance her understanding of the Japanese language. The Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MIBT) decision-making theory shall be used to explain the decision making while the attribution theory shall be used to explain the perspective of Kelly.
Kelly made various decisions such as joining the JET participants program, buying a mountain bike so that she could be able to go for rides around the country, she also decides to join a local Kendo club so that Mr Higashi could be satisfied that she had finally decided to get involved in something that was traditionally Japanese and stop pestering her to sign up for the Japanese culture, declining to sign up for the Japanese culture program, the decision to tour the various parts of the island as well as the declining to sign for the paid leave instead of the sick leave just like the way Mr Higashi wanted.
Kelly, Mark and Suzanne wanted Mr Higashi to honour the terms that were stated in the contract but Mr Higashi wanted them to things like they were done by the Japanese as a way of honouring their employers something that the JET participants differed. This decision did not go down well with Mr Higashi. Kelly also decided to take the matter to a higher level as well as involve CLAIR so as to resolve the issue (Heller, 2012). Kelly’ s Character Personality is considered as the measurable traits that an individual portrays such as aggressiveness, shyness, ambition, laziness, hard-working as well as the way the individual interacts as well as reacts to other individuals.
The personality is determined by the heredity of an individual, age, as well as the environment. The values are considered to be the things or the character that the society approves or hold moral and ethical considered (Brattton & Gold, 2009).
