Does mankind actually have control over what happens in their lives? In 1966, Julian Rotter proposed the idea of locus of control. Locus of control refers to one’s beliefs about the power they have on their own lives. A person with an external locus of control thinks that outcomes in their lives are based on outside forces out of their control. An internal locus of control is the belief that people control their own outcomes, that life is a direct result of their efforts.

Perception is the organisation, identification and interpretation of sensory information in order to represent and understand the environment. Like perception, logic plays a role in critical thinking. Critical thinking is the process in which one mentally explores deeper than the superficial matters at hand into the deeper layers in order to find out what the real issues are. However, when it comes to weighing their beneficial impact on the critical thinking process, logic and perception are by no means equal. While logic is firmly rooted in reason, perceptions are just as firmly rooted in one’s senses and can easily be corrupted.

2.2. Desolation In the first week of the Spiritual Exercises, St. Ignatius gives rules for discernment. Spiritual desolation is an experience of trail to remain firm and faithful. Gallagher says, “Persons in spiritual desolation, who consider this truth while they are enduring the desolation, find themselves crossing a spiritual threshold.”
Isen, a researcher at Cornell University, questions that most people believe that emotion can affect “their decisions and thought processes, at least under certain circumstances,” however, it must be strong feelings that can have such effects. Isen argues that “common positive feelings are fundamentally included in cognitive organization and processing.” Isen discusses about having positive emotions affect “cognitive organization,” such as memory process, which enhances creativity and flexibility of the brain. Isen cites her previous studies that motivations produced by positive affects “promotes helpfulness, generosity/responsibility, and friendliness/sociability.” Also, while a person does the decision making or problem-solving, that person
During a this fall semester I made a decision that I am not proud of and felt guilt when i was confronted about it. When writing an outline for an assignment I copy and pasted a couple of points that weren’t mine. And I used them in the assignment as if they were mine. I knew that it wasn’t right of me being a critical thinker but I did it anyway not thinking about the consequences of my actions.

I had to really think about my actions and how others interpret them.
1. Philosophical analysis is an essential tool for the improvement of our critical thinking skills. The world have introduced to us different ideas about life, death and the existence of God, and thinking about these concepts could sometimes be really confusing. The only effective way to analyze these kinds of concepts is through critical thinking, breaking down the broad and big questions into smaller and more specific questions to understand them better.
Ethan’s agreement that death is better than parting is an example of cognitive dissonance that directly affects the plot of the novel. Cognitive dissonance is best described as an inconsistency in the beliefs that one holds, which is prominent in the thoughts as opposed the actions taken by Ethan. He is essentially given an ultimatum when Zeena threatens to fire Mattie; Ethan must make the decision to act upon his desires without the benefit of time as he had once thought he had. Before this is thrust upon him, he has the general cognition that he should not pursue Mattie. This is evident in his lack of action during their dinner without Zeena.
