Question one
The article tries to analyze ‘the role of power motivation in creativity’. This is achieved with ‘a moderated mediation approach’. The research involved the creation of the hypothesis that power inspiration would affect workers creative capacity. The research involved the conceptualization of a ‘moderated mediation model’ whereby power inspiration enhanced individual inventiveness through enhancing the superiority of ‘leader member exchange’. It was also proposed that the supervisor sustenance for creativeness would regulate the indirect consequence of power inspiration on creativeness that was mainly facilitated by the LMX. From a sample constituting mainly of Chinese employees in a number of corporations, it was discovered that power inspiration had a positive relationship with creativity. In addition, it was concluded that this positive correlation was facilitated by the leader-member exchange.
I think this research and its conclusion is effective in explaining the role of power motivation in creativity. This is because, for creativity to thrive, motivation must be present and should be supported by supervision of employees.

Question two
Various empirical and clinical analysis have inidctaed that individuals with borderline disorder can either be sensitive or insensitive to pain. The variation in the sensitivity and insensitivity can be described by the situation of the agony. For instance, borderline patients are observed to experience attenuated agony responses in the case of accute self-induced pain while the same patients appear pain intolerant for chronic endogenous pain. The research tried to expound this uncommon contradiction and discusses the psychiatric valuation of chronic agony. The research also emphasized the significance of primarily defining the patient status with respect to the borderline syndrome. The research recommended a particular pain-administration approach that tackled the self-regulation complications of these patients and reduces the hazards of treatment.
