Having an open mind is another characteristic people turn to when contemplating what an ideal person is. It shows that one is open to new ideas, suggestions and can see the opposing side of an argument. Appreciation is given to those with this trait because it is easier to reach agreements on important matters by both sides of the argument compromising.

Ungar’s essay, Charles Murray discusses why a liberal arts degree is unnecessary in his essay, “Are Too Many People Going to College?”. Murray believes that the basics of a liberal education are indeed important, but that students should be provided the basics of liberal arts in elementary and middle school (Murray 223). In this essay, Murray cites E.D. Hirsch Jr.’s book Cultural Literacy: What Every American Needs to Know.” Hirsch Jr. and Murray believe that there is a “body of core knowledge” that all students should have, and that “this core knowledge is an important part of the glue that holds the culture together” but that this core knowledge should be taught in grades K-8 (Murray 224). Murray discusses how young children are much better at memorizing facts than adults are, to support his position that kids should be memorizing this core knowledge at a younger age (Murray 224).
Negative thoughts will make an individual more inclined to avoid others. In a study about the effects of positive thinking, the article reads, “When you practice positive thinking, a connection with other people happens more easily, as you are open to them, and not so concerned with your own stuff” (Diaz). In the excerpt of “Dear Miss Breed”, Louise Ogawa is able to gain confidence and stay motivated because of others positivity.

He acts as a counselor for his students and sees the pressure they put on themselves. He tries to give them speeches of freedom and hope but the students want a “map” (Zinsser 2). The students want a perfect plan for their lives, they desire security. Zinsser, on the other hand, wishes “them the right to experiment, to trip and fall, to learn that defeat is as instructive as victory.” (Zinsser 2). But, as Zinsser explains, America’s society doesn’t allow you to fail.

Counteroffers are a response to the first offer. The tit for tat methods states parties respond to the opposing party the same. Power based negotiations does have its benefits, but it’s not without faults.
The exposure to numerous courses teaches students a wide variety of knowledge which assists them with their future careers. In his essay, Ungar analyzes the differences between colleges who have the liberal arts based education and ones who pursue the STEM fields—science, technology, engineering, and mathematics based education. Ungar states, “The liberal arts encompass the broadest possible range of discipline…The historical basis of a liberal education is in the classical artes liberals, comprising the trivium (grammar, logic, and rhetoric) and the quadrivium (arithmetic, geometry, astronomy, and music” (Ungar, 2017, p. 229).

The maxims in character-level interaction and implicatures are similar to the maxims applied in real-life conversation. The difference is readers could reach better implicatures than characters, since readers could have more information. As for the maxim of quantity on narrator-to-reader level, it is hard to determine which level of information should be considered as sufficient. Yet readers are disposed to think all the details are relevant and tend to interpret them in a meaningful way. And the repetitive narration of a same incident may suggest the narrator share the same interpretation with a character, which makes this interpretation more convincible.
