“Succeed so that you can help us in future”. This is always the narrative when a member of the society gets into higher learning. The general population wants to get the best out of someone but what happens when circumstances do not allow for success. Cheating in the exam is one way to make people happy in that one has to violate the rules that govern exam misconduct. In this case, cheating is good but is it morally correct?
One could state cursive is unnecessary, but that does not mean it has no benefits. “It might not really be necessary, but it is one of those superfluous things that make life worth living.” (Blaser) As I previously discussed in my introduction, individuals will face a challenge if the reward is worth the cost, and tons believe cursive is a worthwhile investment. One argument for learning cursive is it increases one’s basic motor skills. Writing in cursive is complicated; it takes effort and it requires meticulous hand movements. The movements might seem small, but they are very good for basic motor skills.
One will also gain and keep more friends, because one will tend to be a good listener and have fewer biases. As one develop reasoning abilities, one will also develop various type of skills and insights absent in weak-sense critical thinkers. If we fail to take this reasoning seriously, the implications will lead us in becoming a selfish thinker and sophist which is known as weak-sense thinker. One will never develop higher-level skills and the positive value of critical thinking as we fail to consider in good faith of others opinion that contradict from our own opinion as it lacks fair-mindedness and the essential traits of mind. These weak-sense thinkers might develop some intellectual skills such as skills of argumentation and may gain so success in getting their goals but they will not develop the traits of disciplined
If you’re afraid of what will happen after making the change, you will resist it. Remember that a lot of things are out of our control. No matter what changes we make, or what changes are forced on us, we are never really in control of the events that follow. Also remember, that being proactive by making positive changes in your life creates positive results. Think about it.
Not only can the debaters benefit from group debates but the quality of information that is sent back and forth throughout these arguments can benefit the matters at hand. With the good always comes a little bad, so there are some drawbacks to debates as well. When people put in so much effort and passion into their opinions, points, and views, they can become sensitive, emotional, offended, and even provoked. This is not the intent for debates, but it can happen. Also, debates are basically a battle between people and one side wins and one side loses.
However, Schindler’s motivations may also be less altruistic: it is possible that his own ego and narcissism led him to be a saviour. He initially reacts angrily to the idea that his factory is a haven, but perhaps became enamoured of the idea of being a hero. The needs of his ego may, in some capacity, have surpassed his material needs. The film does not propagate such a harsh stance, but Schindler’s boorish behaviour makes this speculation plausible. Nevertheless, whatever the results of an analysis of Schindler’s motivations, the good effects of his choices are
But we have seen that the stories of Daniel and Jozef support the decision to act upon the desire for revenge and appear intended to discourage its mere expression. Diamond’s conclusion, though unsupported by his evidence, is not unreasonable. In fact, I agree that revenge is a natural emotion that needs to be expressed rather than repressed, but this can be done more efficiently and effectively through socially acceptable means, such as small comments and actions, rather than the large, virulent, melodramatic declarations Diamond seemingly recommends. This new conclusion can be applied to many other socially repugnant emotions like greed, envy, and sloth. Though Diamond’s evidence is independently enlightening, the conclusion he draws from it provides the reader with the broader opportunity to reconsider current philosophies about how we can best express common emotions within
Or overanalyze and deconstruct things and so the happiness that comes from just enjoying something in the moment disappears. Now, thinking things through can be a great thing of course. But being an overthinker can result in becoming someone who stands still in life. In becoming someone who self-sabotages the good things that happen in life. I know.
I liken defensiveness to being reactive. As humans we often react before we think. This tends to produce a defensive response. While defensiveness is a knee jerk reaction to something we are uncomfortable with, it usually ends up causing more harm than good. One thing that sets us apart from the animals we see on Animal Planet is that as humans we have the ability to recognize this defensiveness; while it feels instinctual our brain has the ability to become aware of this instinct.
Happiness is what every person seeks for. It is not measurable nor possible to buy with money. It is also difficult to achieve. And yet everybody wants it and looks for it. There are some circumstances under which people lose hope on whether happiness exists at all, like depression.
