Now as I’ve been agreeing with all the test’s results and their meanings behind them, there is something that Ms. Kendra Cherry speaks of that I don’t agree with, and that is some of her career choices for ISFJ people. Now she does gives an examples of some that are good choices such as a bookkeeper, banker, and an accountant, she thinks that some of the best career choices for people with the personality type are social worker, counselor, teacher, etc. The reason why I disagree with her choices is that I feel that her choices don’t go well with people who have the ISFJ type of personality. Knowing what it means to be a ISFJ, you would know by now that people who have this type of personality are kinds of people who wouldn’t fit the mold of
Rhetorical Analysis of David Brook’s “People Like Us” The goal of argumentative writing implies the fact of persuading an audience that an idea is valid, or maybe more valid than somebody else’s. With the idea of making his argument successful, and depending on which topic is being established, the author uses different strategies which Aristoteles defined as “Greek Appeals”. Pathos, the first appeal, generates emotions in the reader, and it may have the power of influencing what he believes. Ethos, or ethical appeals, convince the reader by making him believe in the author’s credibility. Logos, or logical appeals, imply the use of reasoning, and, moreover, it may be the most powerful strategy in the pocket of the author as his audience is more likely to believe in facts.
Using blended English will make writing easier to read, comprehend, and reach a broader audience. A variation of English Tan uses is an informal almost slang form of English she uses with her mother and spouse. In the essay introduction, Tan states “Don’t judge a book by its cover or someone’s intelligence by her English” (Tan, 2003, p. 20). She recognized the forms of English used to speak to her family are very unique and knowing the differences can have a
Nussbaum argues that the details of context are of considerable interest and very important: “in many if not all cases, the difference between an objectionable and a benign use of objectification will be made by the overall context of the human relationship in question” (271). Nussbaum further contends that all types of objectification are not equally objectionable and in some form and is also connected with fungibility, ownership and commodification (290). Nussbaum also puts forth that the definition of objectification is not just the idea of treating as an object; defining objectification is more difficult because you have to factor in what is involved in the idea treating as an object (257). Nussbaum puts forth seven notions involved in this idea: instrumentality, denial of autonomy, inertness, fungibility, violability, ownership, denial (257). Each of these is a feature of our treatment of things, though we do not treat all things as objects in all of these ways (257).
As Edward Morrow says, “To be persuasive we must be believable, to be believable we must be credible, to be credible we must be truthful.” This quote perfectly presents how a person has to be believable in order for people to trust and relate to him/her. This person is someone that has weaknesses, is not a stereotype, expresses his opinions, and has hopes, fears and disappointments. Usually, authors try to write about believable characters in their stories, allowing the readers to connect with them. Holden Claufield is a quintessence of this type of character, since he has the exact same qualities as a believable person. Holden confidently shares his opinions and goals.
This article is no exception as it too shares these two points, strong and weak. However, though this article has a strong title, the rest of the article leans more towards being weak in its claim, opposing/common ground, evidence, and experts. The title of any article should catch an individual’s attention. Therefore, it is important to use words or phrases that can make a bold statement. John Platt has a strong title.
Both styles are effective due to the type of narrative they’re telling and what they’re trying to convey to the reader. In the case of “The Great Gatsby” the series of events is the key focus whereas the emotions of the narrator in the “Red Plaid Shirt” are the key focus. Despite, their effectiveness both have their respective drawback however despite this, the style of narration chosen by each author is highly effective and serves each respective narrative compellingly due to what they’re trying to convey and the length of the
What is resilience and is it possible to strength one’s inner self, even after adversity? Resilience is the ability to readily handle issues, and it is possible to cultivate more confidence that leads to resilience. Even though, those who do not attempt to improve to one’s self will have a more troubling time in conquering problems. However, the theme of overcoming conflict is displayed in a numerous amount of ways, as characterization, facts and details, and plot. The theme developed in the literary texts Defending Jacob, The Third and Final Continent, and The Art of Resilience is that overcoming adversity is necessary for success.
Use of Rhetorical Appeals in “Duty,Honor, Country” The effectiveness of rhetorical devices is no better illustrated than in the essay “Duty, Honor, Country” by General Douglas MacArthur. Throughout this piece the tone and opinion is made clear without being heavy handed making the piece infinitely more relatable. MacArthur’s use of the socratic appeals(Ethos,Pathos and Logos), not only makes the reader contemplate what he is saying but how it is being said. Establishing one's own credibility is a challenge often faced by both speakers and writers. How do you get an Audience to trust you?
Using strong and forceful words like ‘sin’, ‘forbidden’, and ‘inhuman’, the author takes a firm stance in the passage. This word choice ensures that there is no question of which side Orwell supports. Therefore, it enhances his point by augmenting his blunt tone. This type of word choice is most effective when explaining facts since
