My judgments are my own and it’s unique. I can’t predict when it happens and when to shut it down, just like my heart beats. I thought this way because whenever I am are faced with someone or something new, I don’t necessarily think over my thoughts to see if it’s reasonable or if I should not think these thoughts. I was questioning how Gladwell will be able to educate and teach someone to control their judgments and first impressions because everyone is different and their thoughts are of course not the same. However, I do understand how learning to control my snap judgments and first impressions is important because it gives people a second chance to prove who they are but everyone is entitled to their own judgment and not everyone has to agree with
Running head: Self Assessment/Reflective Memo Strayer University Gordon McQuaige English 115 Dr. Brandy T. Wilson February 20, 2011 Pre-Writing/ Invention Process I used the brainstorming / listing invention process. I did find this strategy effective but it was hard to focus on one individual subject that I could inform my audience with. I guess my main problem was to focus on one particular subject because I had many thoughts going thru my head. I learned that I should try more prewriting strategies to find the one that will give me what it is that I need instead of staying focused on the one that is not working well for me.
It can be frustrating at times so I think studies that are done with this topic can maybe help spouses figure out where they are going wrong with their communication skills. I have been around a group of strangers and have felt a time or two that they understood me better than my spouse which I did not understand. How can someone who does not know me understand and communicate with me better than someone who spends all their time with me everyday and lives with me. This article shed a little light for me. It makes sense that when you are comfortable with someone you think that you know all you need to know or all you was going to absorb.
If the problems are quite vast and have deeply-rooted causes, you may want to secure the help of a neutral negotiator. This third party may be able to get inside the problem more thoroughly than an insider because when communication problems crop up, the group involved may choose to clam up or point fingers rather than admit to their role in creating the problem.

Common Task 5 – The Help – Write an argumentative essay in response to a quotation from a text. In Kathryn Stockett’s The Help, the following line appears. “....I realized I actually had a choice in what I could believe.” Do people really have a choice in what they believe? Or is much of what we believe decided for us without our even realizing it? To what extent do our parents, peers, and environment influence our beliefs without our being aware of it?
Well, maybe I shouldn’t be so harsh, I couldn’t understand what he was trying to say. The majority of what he was explaining came from other stories in which he didn’t relay, so unless you’re a master in philosophy then you would need to go back and find these stories to read, and then go back and read Beckman; that is how it looks to me anyways. He does however use passages from the tales in which I did not know, which kind of gave me a clue on what was going on. So in short, this book was beyond me. Smart man Beckman gets an A+ from those who can understand him, but a D from those who didn’t know what the hell he was talking about.
As I was reading the article “Close Relationships Sometimes Mask Poor Communication” I thought this article was very true about what it was saying with the lack of understanding people have when they communicate. As the article says” people may think loved ones understand them better than they actually do” (Jan. 2011) I believe that because I always thought people close to me understood what I was telling them until they come to me later and ask what I meant by what I said. Also as this article states people believe they communicate better with close friends than with a stranger, I believe that people do believe that but not everyone knows you will think you communicate the same with friends and
How to improve decision-making at CanGo The decision making at CanGo needs some improvement. At CMN consulting, we believe in the Intuitive decision making model. Intuitive decision making models Some people consider these decisions to be unlikely coincidences, lucky guesses, or some kind of new-age hocus-pocus. Many universities are still only teaching rational decision making models and suggest that if these are not used, failure results. Some researchers are even studying the logic behind the intuitive decision making models!
America's education system at this point in time has become blurred and unattained to. Michael Moore, author of Idiot Nation, is one of the few that has noticed the problem that is going on and makes important point on why this is happening and how it can be helped. There is a specific audience that Idiot Nation is directed towards which includes students and people who can make a big difference such as the president or political representatives. The language used in the essay is descriptive and subjective but also has a lot of hard evidence and facts. People have lost sight of the true value that education holds and do not realize how easy it is to make a difference.
“A good man is hard to find” essay Emily Brooks 26 January 2012 HU110B My Opinion on this short story In my opinion this short story could have brought my mind several different ways. I see this story as a learning experience for people and a way to teach people that not all good things happen to good people. I feel, as this is a way to show people what life is truly about and how some people think that nothing bad could happen to them. It makes you question why people do what they do. Do people act upon what they see rather than what they know is the right thing to do?
