A teenage girl is “in love” with her 17-year-old boyfriend. He is encouraging her to have sex with him saying that he will make sure they only have “protected” sex. As humans we are required to use our ability to make wise judgments on a daily basis, and in this scenario the teenage girl can use the five components of wise judgment to help her decide what to do in this difficult situation. Ultimately, the girl’s decision should be based upon what is best for her.
The first component of wise judgment is factual knowledge about matters of life. This component focuses on knowledge about human nature, interpersonal relations, and social norms (Bolt, 2004). Utilizing this component will enable the girl to understand what motives her boyfriend may have for pressuring her into having sex with him. She should be able to conclude that her boyfriend is a typical 17-year-old boy with raging hormones, and the desire to have sex is just part of his human nature. She may also be able to conclude that he may be trying to fit in with social norms. Perhaps his friends have had sex and they are pressuring him into having sex to fit in with the group.
The second component of wise judgment is procedural knowledge. Procedural knowledge is based upon strategies for dealing with life’s problems, handling conflict, and ways of offering advice (Bolt, 2004). This component can help the girl explain the consequences of having sex at such a young age to her boyfriend. By offering her advice and opinions she may be able to persuade the boy to change his mind about sex. She can also use this component to contemplate her own personal goals in regards to sexual activity, which will help her make her final decision.
The next component is lifespan contextualism. This component will help the girl determine her current role and context in life (Bolt, 2004). This particular…...

Psy 220 Wise Judgement

...There are five components to making a wise judgment according to Baltes and his colleagues. These components can be applied to any real-life situation. How can a mother of a seven year old child that has stolen a box of cookies from the store while she was grocery shopping use these five components to make the best decision to handle the situation? The first component is factual knowledge about matters of life. This consists of knowing the qualities and traits shared by all humans, how they relate to or are associated with other people, and what is socially acceptable as normal behavior. In this situation, the mother knows that stealing is not a trait that is shared by everyone. This is not an acceptable behavior and comes with punishment on many different levels. Procedural knowledge is the second component to making a wise judgment. In this component, one must come up with ways to deal with the situation without conflict. One must offer advice without sounding controlling or demanding of the other person. The mother must explain to the child that what she did was wrong and that instead of just taking something, ask for it. The daughter may not always get what she wants but she did not commit a crime by just taking something without paying for it. Lifespan contextualism is another component to making a wise judgment. In this component one must be aware that life changes on a daily basis and each situation must be handled in a different way. Throughout life, one will......

Wise at Heart

...Jonald Bondoc “Wise at Heart” In 1973, Alice Walker wrote a short story entitled “Everyday Use.” It is about the conflict between two siblings over who gets to keep an artifact of the family’s heritage. At the end of the story, it shows that the younger daughter, Maggie, gets to keep the quilts which the older daughter, Dee, wants most. Despite the fact that the older daughter’s education is superior to the younger daughter’s education, Maggie knows more about her heritage than Dee does. They may both have a liking for their heritage, but Maggie likes her heritage because it brings back memories of her loved ones, while Dee likes it because she wants to use her heritage for selfish reasons. Dee is more educated than her family but lacks the knowledge about her heritage’s true essence; she wants the artifacts of her heritage but only for her selfish reasons. She is the only one in her family that goes to school which means she is the only one in her family who receives a proper education. In the story, Dee visits her family from college because she wants to have something from them: the family’s heritage. Dee wants to have the butter churn top and dasher which were made by her uncle, and she also wants the quilts that were made by her Grandma Dee, which contains pieces of Dee’s grandparents’ and great grandfather’s clothes. What is intriguing about Dee’s action is that she never likes her heritage, and it is even mentioned in the story that Dee changes her name to Wangero...

Wise Children

...How does Carters presentation of acting and performance affect your interpretation of the novel? Angela Carter presents acting and performance in Wise Children in a very theatrical, carnivalesque way. The carnivalesque, in terms of the novel and performance, is shown partly through the several links to Shakespeare’s plays and through the main motto of the novel ‘what a joy it is to dance and sing’. The novel is structured in five parts, with a first person retrospective narrative, in the same way a Shakespeare play is structured into five acts. The Hazard and Chance families in the novel, including Dora and Nora’s ‘legitimate’ and ‘famous Shakespearian actor of a father,’ Melchior, are all performers. The appearance of twins is a particular link to Shakespeare where this is a common element. This also links to the twins in the Shakespeare play ‘twelfth night’ where Viola dresses as her bother Sebastian producing confusion and comedy for the viewer. This display of deception links to when Dora asks Nora for Nora’s boyfriend for the night and they pretend to be each other and deceive him into thinking he is with Nora. Indeed, deception is a common theme throughout performance: Melchior deceives nearly everyone into thinking that he’s a nice man who’s ‘Our greatest living Shakespearian’ when really, underneath the performance he puts on, he’s really the ‘Prince of players’ and doesn’t really care about his own daughters, only that he’s centre stage. . Dora’s narration makes......

Her parents were staunchly Protestant and Rhoda grew up in the First Christian Church. There was a definite anti-Catholic bias in the family and among their friends. Rhoda often heard unkind remarks about Catholics and the Catholic Church. Nevertheless, she did have a few Catholic friends. Incidentally, when she was sixteen, Rhoda had a small encounter with Catholicism. While she was in Wheeling Hospital for an appendicitis operation, she received a visit from a Catholic Sister who gave her a St. Benedict medal. Rhoda explained to Sister that because of her parents dislike for the Catholic Church she would never be allowed to wear it, so Sister put the small medal in Rhoda's locket. Deeply touched by the Sisters kindness, Rhoda kept that hidden medal for the rest of her life. Rhoda married Ernest Wissmar, a young widower from Canton, Ohio, in November of 1915......

Judgement

...Hana Resa Ananda 141521019 Judgement Judgement is the final step in process of knowing. Before we’ve been learned together about conceptualization as the second process of knowing, and conceptualization considered apart from judgement. Simply allows to us to think the materials provided by sensation and perception. Conceptualization is the beginning of understanding, in that it classifies and relates as such-and-such the this-here-now of sensibility tentatively and hypothetically. The classification must correct and to be verified, that is, it must be shown that the evidence is sufficient to warrant the assertion in each case “it is so”. Only then is knowing complete, for only then is any truth-claim made. Judging Judging is the act of the mind by which a proposition is grasped as virtually unconditioned, that is, as having sufficient evidence for its assertion as true. The first is composition and division. This refers to the act of formulating a proposition in the form: S is (not) P. Proportion is difference language but the meaning, for instance: x. The book is red y. The book is red, these two sentence are same but has difference meaning. Utterances: 2 utterences Propostion: 1 proposition The second role of judgement on this traditional presentation is precisely affirmation or denial of a proposition. Judgement in the full sense requires an answer to the question for reflection, although it supposes an answer to the question for intelligence. The......

The Judgement of Beauty

...The Judgement of Beauty The judgments of beauty are universally consistent and biologically based, not influenced by culture and individual history. Argue for or against this statement using what you have learned from the course to support your point of view. You may use one or more examples from outside readings to illustrate your points. “Beauty”, as defined in the Oxford Dictionary (2015), is a collection of pleasant qualities, especially those increase the attractiveness of a person or an object. It can be categorized into two different kinds: external beauty and inner beauty (Panek, 2011). External beauty mainly focuses on appearance and body shape (Etcoff, 1999), while inner beauty refers to internal qualities which is considered nice and graceful to others (Perry, 2011). A person described as “beautiful” usually possess a combination of both. While the concept of “inner beauty” is universal, the standard of external beauty is subject to variations (Carla615, 2011), hence would be the main focus of this essay. Some believe that such judgments are universally consistent and based on biological evidence, while others are convinced that culture and one’s individual background may also impact on judgements of beauty. In fact, judgments of beauty are made under a mixed factor of biological intuition, individual history and cultural change. They are not universal across the world. Across centuries, the standard of beauty was always under the influence of culture.......

Wise Scenario

...A man has had a difficult time finding a job that pays enough to support his family. He has finally landed the job and has been working six months. He discovered that his manager is engaging in illegal activities on the job. Emotional intelligence could be applied to this scenario by the man in the scenario making a decision to either be fired or stay with the company, and deal with the situation of his manager engaging in illegal activities. When being faced with these sort of issues, you must take into consideration that if anyone finds out that you do know about the situation it may come and bite you later. I was once put in this situation at my place of employment. I was being sexually harassed at work for a long period of time, until the situation became dangerous for me. I then later decided to let the superiors know about the situation, and found that they were very understanding, this situation later caused my manager to be terminated, and he has not been able to find any employment in the law enforcement field thus far. I feel that if there is something going on at work that makes you uncomfortable or uneasy, it is your duty to make sure you help protect the rest of your co-workers. Successful intelligence could be used in the sense of finding a unique tactic for dealing with the situation at work. If the gentlemen involved can come up with a creative way to let a higher official know about the situation it may turn out where he would feel more comfortable. I......

...Wise Judgment Scenario Psy 220 Wise Judgment Scenario I chose the scenario, “A teenage girl is “in love” with her 17-year-old boyfriend. He is encouraging her to have sex with him saying that he will make sure they only have “protected” sex.” I decided to choose this scenario because I have grown up in a generation where this situation is very common and many teenage girls do not know how to react to this. Sometimes it can be hard to use wise judgment but it’s not impossible. The first way would be to take a step back and recognize the situation before it gets out of hand. For instance the 17 year old girl has to recognize that the boy is maybe becoming too pushy about the situation by saying, “they will only have protected sex.” The problem here is that he is trying to persuade her and change her thoughts on the situation by saying it will be safe. By realizing this problem she will able to sit down and actually think about the situation instead of falling to pressure and having sex. She will also be able to realize that what he’s doing is wrong and maybe even be able to sit down and talk to him about everything. Another wise judgment would be to define each problem and decide which ones are solving. The problems in this situation are number one he is encouraging her to have sex. She apparently is having a problem with that or he wouldn’t have to encourage her to do anything. This problem would be easy to solve by telling him that she is maybe not......

Wise Blood

...The haunting behavior Flannery O’ Connor creates a fictional world in need of faith. In the book Wise Blood by Flannery O’Connor, Hazel (Haze) Motes is a young man that is driven to find Christ in the city of Taulkinham. Who I considerably believe him to be naïve person, because of his innocent, ignorant, and impulsive behavior. Flannery O’ Connor character is spiritual lean and hungry figures that reject lip services to Christianity and the insipid certainty of rationalism in the pursuit of salvation and portrays the moment of grace as an encounter with holiness and as a moment of epiphany and physical and emotional violence as an essential part of one’s transformation and growth. Hazel Motes is usually deprived economically, emotionally, or both and is dwell in a world which, in Flannery O’ Connor’s words, “the good is under construction”. Hazel is someone who dares to dream but shows no remorse towards the faith and belief that other people may have upon Jesus. Nobody seems to be impressed by the power of his words when Hazel Motes says, “Do you think I believe in Jesus?”… “Well I wouldn’t even if he existed, Even if he was on this train” (7). Hazel speaks to Mrs. Hitchcock in the train letting her know, he would never want to be redeemed; “If you’ve been redeemed, then I wouldn’t want to be” (7). His ignorant and stubbornly attitude is always against Jesus that even if he existed and had him in front of him, he still would refuse to believe. His ignorant attitude is...

...Wise Judgment Scenario Wise Judgment Scenario Making a wise choice takes someone to trust their better judgment whatever the situation maybe. If you are someone like myself, who does not always trust their better judgment than you the choice of making a more promising decision by going over the five components to help someone or yourself to make a decision, trust the decision, and stick to it. When it comes to what I like to call a sticky situation, none of us ever really made that decision or trusted out better judgment that could have kept us out of the situation in the first place. Often times than not, most of us never really thought things through, so for us the five components has become our self-help book so to speak. The first of the five components is factual knowledge about matters of life. The knowledge of and about human nature has always been known to be complex, because there seems to be more than one way or reason to describe it. The factual part is information or knowledge that can be verified and is consider accurate, but also credible. The fact of life with the scenario of this teen girl and her 17 year old boyfriend is even though this is nothing new for most of us; there is something you can do. Between the ages of 12-16, puberty is bound to hit at some point, the urges in those hormones will give the teen the extra push to explore and cross boundaries they may not would have crossed without the hormones.

...Wise Judgment Scenario A teenage girl is “in love” with her 17-year-old boyfriend. He is encouraging her to have sex with him saying that he will make sure they only have “protected” sex. This scenario is a very common one among teenagers these days. I can especially relate to this scenario because I was once in the same situation. However, this scenario can be applied to the five components of wise judgment to help come up with an answer, or solution, to this situation. First, there are four components to emotional intelligence one is emotional perception and expression, emotional facilitation of thought, emotional understanding, and emotional management. Emotional perception and expression is the ability to recognize your own emotions as well as recognizing other people’s emotions. Also, this component involves the capacity to both express positive and negative emotions accurately. As a teenager, it is very hard to control your emotions I myself know how this feels I went thourgh this also when I was teenager. For one this teen girl thinks that she is in love with her boyfriend, but for , being so young she could be confusing love for lust or even a very strong liking feelings because these feelings are probably something she has never felt before and are new to her.

Her boyfriend is encouraging her to have sex with him saying that he will make sure they only have “protected” sex. The questions that come to my mind is what exactly is protected sex and how does she know she really is in love. At this age, do young adults really understand the true meaning behind love? There are five components of wise judgment and they can be applied to this scenario to understand what is happening and what can be done to help her understand how serious this situation can be. The first component to wise judgment is factual knowledge about matter of life. In this situation, does Michelle really understand what is at steak? This is similar to The Death of Ivan Ilyich when he states “What is the right thing?“ (Tolstoy, 2243). If not she should understand that correct information about protected sex. Even if someone has protected sex does not mean they are one hundred percent safe. Everything that is available for protective sex has warnings printed on them. Just because someone is in love does not mean they have to have sex. On the other hand, if Michelle was not ready and understood what can happen if she does give in to having sex with her boyfriend then she......
