Secondary appraisal is a perception regarding our ability to cope with an event that follows primary appraisal. He needs to decide if he can cope or not. If he decides he cannot cope he will experience too much stress which is not good for him. If he decides to cope he can do so in different ways. He could choose to deal with problem focused coping (a strategy in which we tackle life’s challenges head-on) or emotion-focused coping—a strategy in which we try to place a positive spin on our feelings or predicaments and engage in behaviors to reduce painful memories (Pearson
When thinking back to how the mind starts controlling you I think back to my situation and how I immediately started judging that person without even thinking of what they are going through. I couldn't stop the judgements from coming in my head because my day was already off to a bad start. Just because Wallace wasn't able to control his mind from these thoughts doesn't mean I won't be able to as well but in fact I will keep trying. I won't let the comments control my mind but instead my own power will control what I think and
However, prejuducie might prevail regardless of what a person thinks they are doing because someone cannot always recognize their own moments of partiality. Nevertheless, Gadamer might also reply with in that focusing completely on the game, a person could lose themselves because of this intense fixation to play, as they could not possibly think of anything else. But in not concentrating on changing one’s behavior, one is even more suscepible to previous habits and prejudices. So, Gadamer’s strict version of perfect spiel remains impossible to replicate due to a human nature prone to mistakes and
However, they don’t understand the fact that they are putting themselves in a pressure, where they have to make a decision. A decision, that is not only time consuming, but takes too much effort to deal with it. To have more choices only misleads people towards a higher expectation and that expectation can never
However, even if initially people are making attributions to someone’s internal state, they can change this way of thinking and recognize outside situations. Only if someone is not distracted, because it involves a conscious effort to change these thoughts. Gilbert’s theory argues often people do not get to situational attributions if they are not able to cognitively because of distractions or they do not have the information to infer a situation affected the behavior. However, many people, as Wallace states, may not get to this step in the model because they simply do not care to see outside themselves at that moment. It can be extremely difficult for people to see past their own situation in the first place, especially in irritating situations like heavy traffic or a busy grocery store.
“When we walk through our fears rather than run from them, it is impossible not to emerge as a stronger person” (Arcel). Using fear as a motivational tool is only effective when there is a description on how to avoid the threat. If someone were to look back at exciting times in their life, they would also be remembered as some of the most terrifying times. If fear piles up in front of someone and they do not let it hold them back, it could turn out to be more improbable than they ever expected. Fear can be too powerful of a motivator which will cause ineffective results making someone weaker.
Slow down where you are going and eventually, you will slowly and successfully reach your destination. Teenagers should learn to live in the present and to enjoy every moment of their lives. Lots of people miss true happiness not because they did not find a source of happiness, but they never stopped to enjoy it. Life flies by therefore primarily focus on the present and take a look at your
Many people do not have the privilege to be able to gain systematic instruction; therefore, when given the opportunity, people should be able to take action and begin to expand their minds in various ways. Having the quality of being able to further explain a situation “enables [one] to step aside asses the rights and wrongs of [their] actions and regulate [themselves]” (Kumar 1). Many people today are making terrible decisions that not only affect themselves but others also due to the lack of proper education. Fazlullah misinterpreted the Quran; As a result, those who were uneducated started to believe what he had to say due to their inability to understand the Quran on their own. As E. Ravi Kumar stated, “[one] knowing the true value of education will understand “a clear knowledge of human value” and not follow the “opposite values”” (Kumar 6).
In the article “How to Use Failure to Succeed” by Daniel Wood, he comments on the fact that some people are afraid of failing. “Most people are afraid of failure. Some so afraid that they can’t attempt anything that involves the risk of failure” (Wood). Being afraid of failing, blocks an individual from moving forward in progress. This is a common misconception of failure, believing that it will prevent you from ever succeeding.
However, when people fail to use their common sense in life situations, they end up making bad decisions, and it becomes difficult to fit in the society. Making of wrong decisions does not make an individual a failure but failing to learn from the wrong decision and repeating the same mistake does. All human beings have the ability to improve their lives no matter where they are now; it is necessary to know where they would want to be later in future. To change something, people should learn to apply common sense in different situations and get to understand the reasons why set plans fail and measures needed to be taken to move up the ladder and avoid getting back to the same
