DAS2-Theory of Personality: A Cognitive Approach to the Enneagram  [PDF]
Erik Schwarz, Shayesteh Zarrabi
Psychology (PSYCH) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2017.811118
Abstract: The Enneagram is a typology of personality that scopes at the level of ego-personality. Despite the vast amount of attention, it has accumulated since its modern emergence in the 20th century from the Sufi tradition, it is still in need of grounding into current scientific work to disperse some of its much criticized mystical language. The DAS2-theory aims at reconstructing the Enneagram based on cognitive concepts by first establishing the Dynamic Social Field Theory (DSoFT) that expands the Bourdieusian concept of social fields (Bourdieu, 1984), and then proposing the ethological trilogy of Dominance, Aversion, Submission (the DAS-triad)—three distinct stances towards power that have evolved under the pressure of violence, as described by Lorenz (1998). DSoFT posits that the mind is constantly challenged to find the social field that most appeals to the ego in order to react to people and events. To this end—described by using the Buddhist concept of Monkey Mind—the mind jumps from scenario to scenario (field to field) creating micro-contests until it finds a proper reframing of the challenge where it can have a strategy that appeals to the ego. To understand how a DAS-type is formed, three iterative levels have to be built. At the bottom is the DAS-triad, or stances. Because each stance can be applied from a position of superiority or inferiority—that the mind evaluates from the field’s rules—, each of the three stances can branch into two styles, yielding six potential DAS-styles. DAS-styles explain behaviors clearly, distinctly, and ethologically, and form the basis for the application of the DAS2-theory. Lastly, a DAS-type is the selection of a style from the superior triad, as well as one from the inferior triad. Therefore nine types are possible, which correspond to the nine Enneatypes. The DAS2-theory typology can be applied to interpret not only the individuals but also the supra-individual entities’ behaviors without having to resort to metaphors that vaguely describe intentions and actions. It offers new innovative ways to analyze political events, power scenarios, market perception of brands, and other social dynamics, and can greatly influence the academic or social communities of the Enneagram and Power Studies. Further developments in neuropsychoendocrinology and other fields may prove the DAS2-theory assumptions.
Internet Intrusion Detection System Service in a Cloud
Amirreza Zarrabi,Alireza Zarrabi
International Journal of Computer Science Issues , 2012,
Abstract: Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) have been used widely to detect malicious behaviors in network communication and hosts. It is defined as a computer network system to collect information on a number of key points, and analyze this information to see whether there are violations of network security policy behavior and signs of attack. IDS aroused the concern of users as an important computer network security technology. In recent times, with the advent of Cloud Computing, the concepts of Software as a Service (SaaS), where vendors provide key software products as services over the internet that can be accessed by users to perform complex tasks, have become increasingly popular. Cloud Computing is a method to increase the capacity or add capabilities dynamically without investing in new infrastructure, training new personnel, or licensing new software. We introduce a Cloud Intrusion Detection System Services (CIDSS) which is developed based on Cloud Computing and can make up for the deficiency of traditional intrusion detection, and proved to be great scalable. CIDSS can be utilized to overcome the critical challenge of keeping the client secure from cyber attacks while benefit the features which are presented by Cloud Computing technology.
A Generic Process Migration Algorithm
Amirreza Zarrabi
International Journal of Distributed and Parallel Systems , 2012,
Abstract: Process migration has been advocated as a means of improving multicomputer configuration performance. The optimized migration algorithm utilized in migration event has direct effect on the efficiency and deployment of the process migration system. However, every design has preference factors results in concentration on specific aspect of the migration algorithm. There is no generic migration algorithm which could satisfy all circumstances with almost reasonable costs. This paper reviews the major issues which constitute the developer concerns when implementing a process migration algorithm. This examination indicates the existence of similarity in all process migration algorithms. A new migration algorithm is given and compared to the other algorithms. This algorithm attempts to integrate the significant features of the existing algorithms to form a generic algorithm.

International Journal of Grid Computing & Applications , 2013,
Abstract: Process migration refers to the act of transferring a process in the middle of its execution from one machine to another in a network. In this paper, we proposed a process migration framework for Linux OS. It is a multilayer architecture to confine every functionality independent section of the system in separate layer. This architecture is capable of supporting diverse applications due to generic user space interface and dynamic structure that can be modified according to demands.
Effect of Sugar Beet Root Aphid, Pemphigus fuscicornis (Homoptera: Pemphigidae), on Sugar Beet Yield and Quality in Iran
M. Zarrabi
Pakistan Journal of Biological Sciences , 2007,
Abstract: Pemphigus fuscicornis (Koch) is a pest of sugar beet root in warm and dry regions of Iran. This belongs to the Middle East and south east of Asia fauna. Nymphs establish colonies in root sutures and feed heavily which cause wilting and yellowing in beet near harvest. This study was conducted to determine infestation indices, damage occurrence and the necessity for control measures of this pest. Nymph colonies were monitored in different experimental fields that were planted with commonly used monogerm variety Afshari and then five infested places were selected. Damaged root specimens were sampled from five foci and ranked for infestation, yield and sugar concentration. Results indicated that there were no significant differences in weight, sugar concentration and impurities between indices 1, 2, 3 and none infested beets. Only the sugar concentration of indices 4 showed significant differences with zero infested beets. In the other hand, no specimens were found with the highest population density index (indices 5). Therefore, the sugar beet root aphid populations did not reach to the level of economic damage in these experimental fields. Thus, the control measures such as chemical application and use of resistant varieties may be used when the colonies density increases to the indices four and five throughout the foci in such fields.

Strategic Management in Radiology Department
Arash Deljou,Shayesteh Shariatmadari
Iranian Journal of Radiology , 2009,
Abstract: "nA radiologist makes literally hundreds of decisions each day, but once each of those decisions is made, the case is finished. The radiologist is free to move on to the next set of decisions. Radiology practice administrators, in contrast, may be tied up solidly for 6 months while carrying out one business decision. The decision-making processes, environments, and timetables differ so greatly between physicians and administrators that bridging those cultural gaps becomes, in itself, an important step in planning, strategic and operational. "nOne of the main premise is that there is no “Holy Grail” to be found in strategic management, only an understanding that planning and change are the responsibility of senior management in radiology sector. "nIn fact, it is now their primary job in today’s radiology world of constant change, “Analogue to Digital”. "nExcellent organizations don’t just have a budgeting cycle each year; they have a “strategic management” cycle led by senior management as they work on the organization, rather than just in the organization. As planning is just the first function of management, and strategic planning is just the highest order of planning and the purview of senior management in every radiology department, then every department has three basic goals: "n1. Develop strategic and operational plans. "n2. Ensure their successful implementation and change. "n3. Build and sustain high performance over the long term.

Bastani F,Zarrabi R
Hayat Journal of Faculty of Nursing & Midwifery , 2010,
Abstract: Background & Aim: Gestational diabetes is a major concern during pregnancy. Psychological factors such as self-efficacy play important role in adherence of the treatment, control of blood glucose, and the outcomes of the pregnancy. The main purpose of this study was to determine correlations of self-efficacy in women with gestational diabetes attending to educational medical centers of Iran University of Medical Sciences in Tehran. Methods & Materials: In this descriptive correlational study, we recruited 100 women aged 15-49 years old with gestational diabetes and singleton pregnancies using consecutive sampling method. Data were collected using Diabetic Self-Efficacy scale. Results: The mean age of the women was 31 years. The majority of the women (66%) had moderate economic status; and more than half (60%) had no higher education. Sixty eight percent of the study participants were obese or overweight. About 33% of the participants were nullipara; and 69% had wanted pregnancies. The results showed that 43% of the women had low self-efficacy. The self-efficacy scores were significantly correlated with education (P=0.005) and occupation (P=0.016). Conclusion: Self-efficacy is an important determinant of self-management and self-control in gestational diabetes. Regarding low self-efficacy among the women, it seems that implementing educational-counseling strategies to enhance self-efficacy can be helpful to promote optimum self-care among women with gestational diabetes
