For this Discussion, you consider barriers to problem solving. You also explain how one might overcome such barriers.
Write a brief description of two examples when you encountered barriers to problem solving. Then explain the steps you took to overcome the barriers in each example. Finally, explain strategies to enhance problem-solving skills. Support your response with references to the Learning Resources and current literature.
Would you flip a coin for the chance of winning two dollars? What if you were given a dollar and offered the chance to flip a coin to either gain a second dollar or lose the first? Which wager seems more appealing—the first or the second?
Far more people choose the first wager than the second. Both scenarios have exactly the same probability of outcomes: a 50% chance of ending up with nothing, and a 50% chance of ending up with two dollars. Why might the first wager appeal to people? Do we always make the best possible decision?
Impediments are factors that can hinder decision making. While they often vary by situation, common impediments exist that might influence decision making in general.
In this Discussion, you explain a difficult decision you have made. You also describe impediments that you faced when making this decision, as well as common decision-making impediments.
With these thoughts in mind:
Write a brief description of a recent difficult decision you made between two or more alternatives. Then explain the nature of two impediments that you faced in making the decision. Finally, describe two common impediments to optimal decision making.
On March 12, 2009, a former chief of the New York Stock Exchange pled guilty to one of the largest financial frauds in history. Bernie Madoff, founder of his own financial firm and active philanthropist, had been swindling thousands of private investors—many of whom were close friends—out of billions of dollars. Madoff had achieved a degree of personal financial success few individuals ever attain, though he will be spending the rest of his life in prison. Would you consider Madoff an intelligent person? What role might emotional intelligence have played in his decision making?
For this Discussion, you define intelligence and detail its components. You also take a position on whether or not emotional intelligence is an accurate measure of intelligence.
Write a brief definition of intelligence, including the main components of intelligence. Then provide your position on whether or not emotional intelligence is an accurate measure of intelligence. Justify your response.
What raw materials combine to create human emotions? How does the brain construct emotion? Certain theories suggest that emotions hinge on the axes of the following pairs of dimensions: pleasure-misery and arousal-sleep. Does this formula capture the variability of human emotion?
Consider the interplay between cognition and emotion. Some theories posit that emotions consist of automatic responses to stimuli. Other theories suggest that cognitive processes influence the ways in which people perceive emotions.
For this Discussion, select a theory of emotions. Consider why the theory you selected is optimal for the classification of emotions.
With these thoughts in mind:
Write a brief description of the theory you selected from the articles in the Learning Resources. Then explain why this theory is optimal for the classification of emotions. Finally, describe the SPAARS model and explain how it relates to the theory you selected. Support your response using the Learning Resources and current literature.
