I had to pick 10 things to do out of a list of 20 and each one seemed like it should take at least a day to complete. I spent at least an hour just letting how much of a mistake I had made with putting this project off sink in. It was unfathomable. I could not handle the stress that fell on me. After all the time letting myself deal with my naivety of myself for the past months I had to pick out whatever 10 would be the easiest.
I think it is more important to create new memories than to hold on to old ones or even worst, not able to control my life. Therefore I would rather suffer from psychogenic retrograde amnesia, although none of the scenarios are ideal.
The text states,” But even Dr. Exner, the developer of the comprehensive system, agreed that the test "can be abused unwittingly by the ill-trained person," and he said he was uncomfortable with the use of the test in "adversarial" settings, like custody disputes.” The accuracy of these tests can definitely vary with the experience and training of the doctor who is distributing it, so only a few professionals have mastered being able to score the test properly. This clearly shows that the validity of these tests is questionable at best. Supporters of the Rorschach test say that the test is valid because it can delve into the mind of patient without requiring the patient to give up information they are not comfortable exposing. While this argument has some merit, the patient still has the ability to cheat the test by simply responding with the answers that make them look more mentally stable. It is clearly seen that the Rorschach test should not be used to diagnose mental illnesses.
I feel like that is also what Voltaire was trying to satirize, the way we as humans sometimes for the most part don’t take responsibility for our own actions, we are always placing blame on something else rather than ourselves. In addition, we are always thinking about these what ifs and never doing sometimes and that is a problem. Being that we are so worried about irrelevant events, it deters us from what is actually
I need to improve this weakness of mine to be more confident and comfortable with new people. 4. Which situations are most difficult for you, and why? The most difficult situation of all is to say No to someone because it disappoints them a lot when then come up to me asking for help and I cannot help them for any reasons. I usually say yes if it is in my area of expertise to do I usually do it but If the request is unobtainable I say a soft No and do explain them the reason for my
It’s exhausting to always be moving, not being able to go home after school and settling down, like I used to do. I can’t find the energy to do anything until it is at least 10:00 p.m. This way of my life goes along with another weakness of mine, prioritizing responsibilities. The order in which I usually get my work done is from least important to most important, and I do not have a good reason why I do
I do not know that I am not in the matrix. 3. Thus, I do not know that P. The skeptic has an advantage in pressing such claims because an epistemologist has to somehow prove that what a person knows is truth. The skeptic, however, only has to prove that a person's knowledge may be false. There are many people who are uncomfortable with the idea of not knowing of
Doubt is the existence of skepticism in one's thoughts, the idea of doubting is the belief that you’re views are being deceived. Descartes suspects that most things a person experiences or believes is open to doubt. Being a rationalist Descartes presumes all knowledge comes from our senses; sight, touch, hear, and smell, but with that comes doubt. Senses have been known to deceive us in many occasions, for example, our eyes may dominate our sense of hearing in some occasions and sound and sight don’t correlate in that instance. But, there is one thing that our senses can not deceive and that is that we exist.
In modern society, where human rights are highly protected, torture is considered as a hideous crime that makes us feel repugnant. In fact, in a few circumstances, as an interrogation technique, some people are of the opinion that the use of torture is justified. However, torture should still not be legalized because not only the information gathered from it is usually unreliable, but also its effects on both victims and perpetrators are unacceptable. There is no doubt that the confession extracted through torture is not always trusted. Humans, including detainees, mostly tend to avoid pain, which means they may deliver any information just to appease the tormentors instead of the accurate one.
However, it takes a lot of practice to reach this level of mental sophistication because one can become susceptible to being misled by their prejudices in a direction that ignores the subtle elements of a piece of art, which would indicate their level of delicacy. Furthermore, the difference between sentiment and judgment is that the former can always be right because it has no reference to anything beyond itself, while the latter cannot always be right. This is so because judgments do have reference to things beyond itself but don’t always conform. With these two terms in mind, one can understand how the
