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 ready to have sex with him just yet. If he is a mature young man then he will be able to also look at the situation and know that pressuring her into having sex is the wrong thing to do and maybe they should wait. The second problem in the situation is how he is trying to persuade her by saying it will always be protected. This makes me believe that she has told him no and he is trying to change…...

Higher Education: a Wise Investment

...Higher Education: A Wise Investment The world is perpetually changing, and people are changing with it. Every day, there are new demands, necessities, and ways to achieve success in the 21st century. Consequently, to evolve at this rapid pace, people desperately seek opportunities to grow intellectually and feel they have succeeded in life, because everyone has his/her own inner power to make the world better. According to a contemporary model of a liberal society, humans are placed in the center of the planet around them. They are not just observing what is going on, but also participating. They have the right to express their opinion. These ideas might seem to be not very related to an educational process. However, a basis of such concepts like a freedom of speech, a critical thinking and self-respect are formed at school and polished at higher educational institutions (Bronfenbrenner). Everybody has a unique individuality. Studying at a university or college is efficient for liberating consciousness and developing the creativity of young people. Thus, investing into a higher education might lead to efficient results in this sphere. All around the world, universities are considered to form free-thinking members of the democratic society. The latter tend to make themselves and their communities better (Sokol). It is quite difficult to state that attending a university is a sine-qua-non for everyone in society. However, most experts would agree that higher......

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......

Rhoda Wise

...Rhoda Wise –Wife, Mother, Mystic, Stigmatic, and Catholic convert (1888-1948) Rhoda Wise was born on February 22, 1888 and was the sixth child of Eli and Anna Greer (nee Anna Poulson). They eventually had eight children, five boys and three girls. She was born in Cadiz, Ohio, however when she was two they moved to Wheeling, West Virginia. Her father Eli worked in the family trade of bricklaying. Her mother was very patriotic and became involved with the Ladies of the Grand Army of the Republic, an organization which supported the veterans of the Civil War, even serving as a state and a national president for a time. 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......

Wise Advice

...Wise Advice Would you have liked to receive advice from previous students of a particular class that you were planning to take? We have all been new students at some point in our lives, and we know how overwhelming it can be. When students sign up for English 92 with Mr. Chapa, they most likely aren’t aware of what they signed up for. However, feeling overwhelmed so early into the semester isn’t the way to start. There are useful resources available for anyone who wants to know about courses and professors. One of many useful resources is an online website that consists of previous students stating reviews and comments about courses and professors, but the website doesn’t offer sufficient advice. I have several pieces of advice for incoming English 92 students to be able to succeed in the course. The first piece of advice for incoming English 92 students is to practice the concept that is taught. By practicing the new concepts, student will be able to develop useful skills needed throughout the semester, as well as for future college writing classes. Many students will begin the course with bad writing habits, but in English 92 they will have to let go of their bad habits to be able to replace them with good habits. The most important part of learning for English 92 will not be done in class; rather it’s done outside of class. At home or at a library the student will slowly begin to develop proper writing skills. Mr. Chapa is not a professor that will check on......

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).

Wise Judgement 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. 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......

Wise Blood

...Flannery O'Connor was born and raised in Savannah, Georgia. After her father died of lupus erythematosus, a rare and fatal autoimmune disease, she and her mother lived alone. She received a general education at Georgia State College for Women and then continued to study creative writing at the University of Iowa. After receiving an M.F.A. degree in 1947, Flannery spent time in an artists' colony in Saratoga Springs, New York, and then with friends in Connecticut. She finished writing Wise Blood in 1950. Later that year, Flannery developed the same disease that had ended her father's life. Though crippled by lupus, Flannery was able to enjoy a modest lifestyle on her mother's ancestral farm, raising peacocks and writing. Her short stories are collected in A Good Man is Hard to Find, and Other Stories (1955), Everything That Rises Must Converge (1965), and Flannery O'Connor: The Complete Stories published posthumously in 1971. Her only other novel was The Violent Bear it Away (1960). Flannery O'Connor was a devout Catholic. She approached her work as a novelist and short story writer with a realistic understanding of her audience. The society around her had separated physical fact from spiritual reality and was left without any ground for belief. As Flannery wrote of spiritual experiences, she was careful not to "approach the divine directly," but rather to "penetrate the natural human world as it is." (O'Connor 68) She had a keen ear for common speech and used her......

Wise Judgement Scenario

...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. The downside teens don’t seem to grasp is......

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......
