In a metaphorical term, we gain a lens, in which allows something to be more thoroughly understood. By removing ourselves from this area of our negative, quick to judge thoughts, we can perceive something through a clearer lens which reveals details which may have been previously unseen or assumed upon. We all hope though, a person is not saying persuading arguments for his own benefit. We must use our own opinions to determine our decision. Either way could make the judger or the person giving the opinion look bad, so it is almost dangerous.
Have you ever avoided doing your school work, but then realising that no matter what you do, there are always going to be consequences? I personally believe that one can avoid their reality temporarily; however the consequences of doing so cannot be escaped. Reality is a double-edged sword; we can evade it and face the consequences of doing so, or we can face it and suffer the consequences of doing so. All too often, reality can be overwhelmingly negative, with no other means of escape but to deny the truth. And when we come across this negativity, we will usually evade our reality.
I tell others that no matter how bad things may seem there is always someone who has it worse and I try to think that when faced with trials and tribulations of my own. •In your opinion, is prejudice easy or difficult to measure accurately? Why? I would say that prejudice is difficult to measure because it’s an emotion
Our value and credibility drop tremendously. Just as bad, while our wardrobe and looks may be in fashion, our vocabulary, the way and manner we speak, may simply be out of date. People must begin to realize the importance of word choice when talking to an individual or a group of people. Speech is an important thing to keep in mind when speaking with other people. The tone in which you talk to someone should range among
I will develop a plan about how I can regain control. I get angry when I feel powerless. The moment I feel I have regained control I will find my anger fading away. Action Plan # 2 Emotionality In the past it has been difficult for me to appropriately admit thanks for favors. I need to learn how to accept assistance from others and appropriately acknowledge their help.
If they believe they can't be successful, they can’t. Failure only exists in people's minds, and it is born the moment they decide to give up and stop working toward their goals. Yet, LeBoeuf agrees that although fear of failure should be avoided, there are some benefits people can gain from choosing to let fear of failure rule their lives. As stated in Fear of Failure, “Being ruled by a fear of failure lets you take the easy way out...Reacting to a fear a failure also provides a false sense of safety and security.” People can easily scratch a difficult task off their list and tell themselves that the goal is impossible, rather than trying to accept the challenge of reaching that goal. Also, by not trying, they give
He asserts the way in which such prejudice can “obscure the truth.” Furthermore, the author asserts the effects of other human fallibilities, such as personal experience and preconceived ideas, on the decision making process. However, Rose asserts that such weaknesses can be overcome if there is at least one person who is acting honourably and has the courage to stand against opposition, for through his actions, he can initiate others to acknowledge their prejudice and seek justice. Through the frailty of prejudice portrayed by the jurors, Rose asserts the difficulty of making objective decisions, and the effects such fallibilities have on the stability of the judicial system. Rose initially depicts the prejudice held by the majority of the jurors through the haste with which eleven of the twelve jury members reach a decision. Despite being required to deliberate a case with such serious consequences, all bar one of the jurors believe that there is an “obvious” truth, that it is “one of those open and shut things.” These views highlight the author’s concern as he demonstrates the ease with which the wrong decision could be made, as a result of prejudice.
My manager has recently told me that my strengths also fall in the logical range. I tend to lean towards policies, I am great at using logic to solve problems, and I make to do lists and following them logically. I believe that sometimes my logical thinking keeps me from doing impulsive things that would be fun, but I see those situations as out of control. I do desire to be more creative and artistic, but know that I will need to spend time learning those talents because they do
George Moore once said “The difficulty in life is the choice...” In other words, one faces many situations throughout life in which a choice must be made. Typically, the choice made defines the character and alters or affects the person’s path in life. Making a careless decision has the potential to destroy everything the character stands for and can lead to the decline of the individual’s sense of direction. However, a well thought out choice can liberate the soul from discontent even when the choice involves hurting others for the sake of saving yourself. I agree with this quote since reacting on impulse in a difficult situation is a lot simpler than thinking your next step through and basing your actions upon filtered and well thought out options.
There is definite value in her argument, but because she just scratches the surface of how emotions could be incorporated into the process of acquiring knowledge, there are a few areas of her theory that are problematic. For the sake of brevity, this paper will discuss what is, perhaps, the biggest flaw in the Jaggar reading—standpoint theories seem to be oblivious to differing experiences of particular individuals within groups and instead speaks of experiences of these groups as shared ones. Allison Jaggar asserts that theories that make the distinction between emotion and reason in association with acquiring knowledge are mistaken because they falsely assume that emotions are involuntary responses that can be separated from
