He lets the readers know that students are well aware of the difficulties they face concerning writing and that much of the time they blame themselves. He then begins his argument by stating that he believes the problem is caused by ineffective teachers. Everything up to this point sends the paper in a good direction. The introduction does everything it is supposed to do including giving credibility to the writer, identifying the audience as future teachers, and gives a purpose for the essay.

After undertaking this course, I have high regard for literary discourse that promotes positive thinking in society.
Kanika Frye Alcorn State University Alcorn State, MS 39096 September 12, 2013 Mrs. Barker Vicksburg High School Vicksburg, MS 39180 Dear Mrs. Barker: Thank you greatly for your affable personality in my senior English class at Vicksburg High School. Because of your influence I was adapted when I transferred from the University of Southern Mississippi to Alcorn State University. You taught me that in order to acquire common knowledge and intellectual skills we must study and appreciate literary text. The multiple vocabulary quizzes I believed to be impediments for an early dismissal were your way of cautioning me of what was to come. In reality, knowledge of literary terms is crucial to successful reading comprehension.
However, I am also a person who likes directions and rules to make logical sense. If I am skeptical or unsure as to its logic, I will question and present alternate ideas which is uncharacteristic of a conventional thinking style. The dependent thinking style, for which I also scored in the 97th percentile, is characterized by indecisiveness, feelings of helplessness, preoccupation with pleasing people and passivity. I agree that I am a dependent thinker. I often look to other people’s opinions when trying to make decisions and I often feel that things that happen in my life are beyond my control which leads to feelings of helplessness.

Matthew McKee Self- Defeating Habits “If you are pained by external things, it is not they that disturb you, but your judgment of them. And it is in your power to wipe out that judgment now.” -Marcus Aurelius, Meditation This above quote by Marcus Aurelius on external pains and the effects on inner self could not have been articulated any better. When an outside force or stress is encountered, our “fight or flight” instinct will immediately initiate. This in laymen’s terms means that when someone [in this particular scenario, humans] is presented with an overwhelming stress, the immediate stimuli response would be, “Do I take this challenge head on and expect a positive outcome or do I avoid and mask the situation at all costs, hoping for the best?” Now, moving to the Freshman Success manual, a “Creator” would in fact be categorized as the type of person who would act on these stresses in a “fight” manner. The Creator would face the stress head on and expect a positive result whereas a “Victim” would mask the quandary and continually accumulate the given stress, inevitably breaking down mentally.
