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.
Also some people who have special needs don’t understand what consequences are, so punishing them or reprimanding them for things may be pointless because they can’t comprehend why what they did was wrong (Attention Issues and the Brain). So their actions and their consequences may differ from the actions and consequences that other people deal with in everyday
We, as a species have a hard time admitting when we are wrong.How do you live with something that has no cure? Sure, they have medication and counseling that can help subdue the problem for a short time being, but, it’s always there, haunting the corners of your mind. Attention Deficit Disorder, or ADD is a somewhat commonly known. People sort of know what it is, but that doesn’t mean that they completely understand what it is. The problem is more People believe the myths of ADD, such as, ADD is more about a lack of willpower, when in factuality, it is so much more complex than simply not wanting to focus.
Numerous stereotypes are ignorant ideas of those who are different than they are. In the above cases, it would degrade and offend people to be stereotyped based on your location. People are stereotyped every day, not just on the location of where they are living, but any aspect that people are different from those making the judgement. People who cast stereotypes may just be uneducated about other cultures or geographic locations. It is easier, sometimes, for some to make a judgement, rather than find out what is true.
Many are often confused on the difference between stereotyping, being prejudice, and discrimination. Being prejudice often includes an unreasonable attitude that is unusually resistant to a rational influence. Discriminating a specific group can include treatment of a person or particular individuals in a way that is worse than the way people are usually treated. As for stereotypes, they are simply cognitions or beliefs. If someone stereotypes another person or group of people, it does not necessarily mean they are prejudice or discriminatory.
Emotions can make everything look blurry and generate doubt when it comes to truth, it can alter the results and conclusions lightly or in large quantities. When it comes to emotions, people tend to believe in what they are more emotionally attached to, their emotions influence in what someone believes something is true or not; the stronger the feeling, then you are more attached to something. This way of knowing affects directly and neutralizes the previous one, reasoning. When using emotions, people are blind to the truth, because they don’t what to see the reality of what they are attached to. In here comes the term, “Appeal to Authority”.
Egotistical behavior tends to be looked down upon, and is considered to be corrupt and reprehensible. It is also considered wrong to put your own opinions and ideas before others’, especially if it will affect others negatively. Odysseus evidently has demonstrated that his actions are for his own best interest of appearing to be
A person’s behavior should be considered abnormal if it adheres to one or more of the following criteria: • Behavior deviates from social norms or is unusual (reflective of cultural standards). • Faulty perceptions of reality; including hallucinations (hearing/seeing things that aren’t there), and ideas of persecution (i.e. people are out to get you). • Significant personal distress caused by emotions, especially if they are prolonged or persist even after the source of pain is removed, and if they impair one’s ability to function. • Behavior is maladaptive or self-defeating; actions that knowingly lead to unhappiness and impair one’s ability to function and/or adapt to an environment.
This fear is carried out to the point that they see certain freedoms as less and less important. While another group, feels as if political correctness is being forced and upon them and in relation to this they have begun to act out in frustration and anger. This has led this group to extol certain freedoms above that of other rights and individuals. The consequences of both of these groups will have lasting and
This clearly shows how sometimes reaching a consensus is not the a great idea because there can be trust issues in the group or simply discomfort working with them.Another exemplification of how consensus making is not always a excellent idea is shown in the article “How to Reach a Consensus” where it states “Decide how your group will reach a final decision. (Some groups insist on unanimity; others accept a consensus with one or two dissenting voices)” What if there's a lack of trust between the people.How will they reach a consensus if they do not trust each other or feel comfortable with them.This shows how there can be flaws when reaching a consensus and how lack of trust can be a deal breaker when reaching a consensus.In other words reaching a consensus is not always possible because there can ble flaws or simply there can be a situation where it is impossible to reach a
I agree with Trudeau’s ideals of how national relationships should operate. In my view, it’s because some don’t prioritize interaction and being open with each other that our current society is plagued by a discriminative feature: stereotypes. The problem affects both our government and social society. Because of stereotypes, there are certain aspects expected from a person because of their race, beliefs, and/or culture. Stereotypes are widely known and are hard to get rid of since, some choose to be ignorant in learning the various types of people we will come to communicate with; their lack of knowledge would force them to use the information available to them, which are stereotypes.
This creates a whirlwind of problems for Holden, convincing the reader that “Holden is clearly flawed . . . (Bickmore and Youngblood 254)” His failure to reflect upon his poor choices, such as his failure to study and lack of motivation, can be seen as the birthplace from which many of his problems spring, leading to his pessimistic
In addition, vague policy mandates can be a disadvantage to public administrators because vague policies can lead to different interpretations of a policy and allow room for confusion and tension to arise among people in achieving a desire goal. According to Feldman, the presence of ‘‘many possible ways of perceiving’’ means that there are ‘‘competing interpretations’’ ( Feldman,1989, 7). Therefore, an organizational goal loses clear understanding, and eventually becomes inconclusive and unproductive when it
