On the other hand, Katniss is suspicious of his behavior, and believes he is just pretending to be nice, but she realizes that he is just being himself. She states in the book, “Peeta Mellark, on the other hand, has obviously been crying and interestingly enough does not seem to be trying to cover it up. I immediately wonder if this will be his strategy in the Games. To appear weak and frightened, to reassure the other tributes that he is no competition at all, and then come out fighting.” (Collins, 2008, p.49) He is a very caring person because he doesn’t want Katniss to sacrifice herself for him. Instead, he is helpful, and helps her, for example by helping her get away from the enemies.
It was seen as a bad trait and no one wanted to spend time with Thomas because they did not want to listen to his stories. In general, in the written version of this story the storytelling aspect was merely used as a quirk that Thomas has. It does add to the story though, because it shows why Victor does not like Thomas or why he finds him embarrassing. The fact that Thomas feels comfortable telling his stories says a lot about him. “Thomas Builds-the-Fire
This is shown by the quote ‘he could, he could have kept her on instead of throwing her out. I call it tough luck’. This quote is saying that Eric doesn’t care about any other women because he is treating them in the wrong type of manner for example ‘he treats them like they are prostitutes or people of the street’. There is another point that stats ‘Changed by the events in the play’. This is shown by the quote ‘I know I’m to blame – and I’m desperately sorry – but I can’t believe – I won’t believe – it’s simply my fault that in the end she had committed suicide hat would be too horrible’.
The issues with Dana’s mentality should be very obvious, however, the other characters don’t necessarily see this change as a problem. For example, Kevin just thinks that Dana needs some alone time, but then after some time they can have sex and everything will be fine. Similarly, Rufus doesn’t ever take in to account Dana’s emotions, so the beatings and slave trade which are normalized in the 1800s are not normal for Dana, but Rufus ignores her feelings and does what he wants in order to keep power over her (Butler 214). Both Kevin and Rufus simply think that Dana is not used to the situation or is
He attempts to make peace, his actions are no different than those of others, and he is experiencing resentment. Although there is no excuse for murdering others, Grendel does not kill for the fun of it. His actions are just reactions to emotions he is experiencing. Furthermore, his willingness to make peace emphasizes the remorse he feels for the crimes he has committed. This also shows that he acted impulsively because of his strong feelings of resentment.
However, I think the clip from the Break-Up of Brooke and Gary were using destructive communication because the argument started out as a minor issue that escalate into a major problem. I believe this because of the couples reaction to how Gary responds to Brooke when she ask him are you going to do the dishes and Gary respond nonchalantly like cool, so this is when the destructive communication starts with the couple. Because Brooke had already been in an irritable mood, so her destructive communication defensive mode came into play, because how Gary was acting with not trying to help Brooke with the dishes, he just wanted to relax and play the game. Besides Brooke had already started the conflict mode because of Gary not just getting up and help her just clean the dishes, he wanted Brooke to do them tomorrow and now the couple is angry between each other because of Gary not want to help Brooke do
There was one small moment of discomfort when one older member started making nasty comments to a very young member because he was “talking way too much”. The older man stated, “The thing that will save you, is if you shut up”. I found this to be very rude, as did many of the other members. I, however, did not say anything because it was not my place. Other than that short moment, I really enjoyed this meeting.
(Plous, 2003) Regarding participation in offensive jokes, people would rather refrain from taking part in them, while some do not mind them. A reason for that is everyone’s different type of humor – we find different things amusing and while we do not see a joke as offensive, even if it is done on our behalf, there are others who would be hurt by it. It is important to take that into consideration and always analyze our surroundings before engaging in controversial behavior. While most avoid using words that reinforce negative stereotypes, there are those who do it. A reason for that may be the different cultures and level of context societies the participants in the questionnaire come from.
In this work, it’s important to know that deviance is a form behavior that is against the norms of the society There are numerous conflicting theories on the causes of deviant behavior, but the main ones fall into three categories: functionalist, conflict and symbolic interactionism. Deviance as a violation of social norms, sociologists have characterized it as of their values or rules or group conduct, that violate studies of social deviance is the study of the violation of cultural norms in either formal or informal contexts. Social deviance is a phenomenon that has existed in all societies with norms. Sociological theories of deviance are those that use social context and social pressures to explain deviance. Deviance- means violation of social norms in a society.
The means of defining yourself as a person come to us from different experiences and different attitudes on life that we’ve got. Our actions towards others and towards different situations help us define the world we live in. By creating certain groups and/or organizations that we belong to based on our beliefs we divide the world and the people among themselves into meaningful subgroups within larger organizations. At the same time, the world has a great impact on our decision making, and action taking, and most of all on our thought process that is directed at everything we encounter on the daily basis throughout our lives. Such correlation between the self and the world in sociology is defined and the “sociological approach to self and
