Wise Judgment Scenario

Choose one of the following scenarios and discuss how each of the five components of wise judgments can be applied to the scenario you have chosen. Then, make a decision based on the five components. Explain the rationale behind your decision.

1. 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.
2. 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 discovers that his manager is engaging in illegal activities on the job.
3. A mother knows that her 7-year-old child has stolen a box of cookies from the store while she was grocery shopping.
4. A high school friend cheated on his college entrance exam and told you about it.

Baltes and his colleagues have organized components of wise judgment into five areas. Understanding each component is important in handling the situation wisely. A seven-year-old child has stolen cookies from the grocery store. How does the mother handle the situation with her son stealing the cookies?
Component one is factual knowledge. Component one consists of knowing characteristics and traits shared by humans, how they relate to other people and what is normal behavior. The component helps the mother conclude that stealing cookies is not normal behavior or a characteristic for all children. Stealing is a punishable crime; therefore the right discipline is essential. The mother can think about the process of trial and error during the young years, and realize that it was faze to see what would happen.
Component two is procedural knowledge for making a wise judgment. Procedural knowledge is a component that helps the person avoid conflict and still deal with the situation. The person is understanding…...

...Reflecting On Wisdom name PSY/220 February 2, 2013 instructor My Aunt died a few days ago. I didn’t really know her very well until last year. Last summer we spent a long weekend together for a family reunion, sharing stories, deep from the heart kind of stories and I fell in love with this amazing woman who is the sister to my late grandfather. Aunt Patty was this radiant soul who cared for people deeply. She was with her wife for 25 or so years, both out lesbians since they became one, both working for the public school system. They had so much courage! They worked hard to fight for gay rights and to make a difference in big and small ways in their community. Sitting with my aunt, hearing her tell me their story and sharing with me about her life, I was so blown away by the way that she lived: with love, courage, humility, compassion, beauty and grace. I left our reunion so happy that this woman was of my blood and that I got to know her and her wife the way family should know each other: seeing each other for who we really are and cherishing that deeply. Thanks to facebook, after our time together, I got to know both of these awesome women more. To see them speak out about things that matter to them, to see them share their love for each other and this great big, giant love affair with life. WOW! Bold living and such inspiration! I can’t even really express how awed I became of my aunt and her wife. Two magical spirits living life in a big way. And then, we got...

...University of Phoenix Material Appendix B November 2012 Research Methods List the advantages and disadvantages of the following research methods: Case Study Advantages Case studies allow a lot of detail information to be collected that would not normally be easily obtained by other research designs. It provides detailed descriptions of precise and rare cases. An in depth data can be collected than can be found through other experimental designs. Case study can be a source of new ideas about a person’s behavior and open new ways of findings (Psy270 textbook). Case study can support a theory. Disadvantages One of the main criticisms is that the data collected cannot necessarily be generalized to the wider population. This leads to data being collected over longitudinal case studies not always being relevant or particularly useful. Case studies are generally on one person, but there also tends to only be one experimenter collecting the data. This can lead to bias in data collection, which can influence results more than in different designs. It is also very difficult to draw a definite cause and effect from case studies. Correlation Method Advantages Enables testing of expected relationships between two variables, and making projections, forecasts or predictions. These relationships can be assessed in daily life events. More experimental research can be conducted using new groups of participants to establish cause and effect. Correlational......

...University of Phoenix | Attachment Style and Relationships | PSY/220: Part 1 & Part 2 | | Lyndsey McMahon | 11/4/2012 | | Part 1 Sternberg's Theory of Love describes three components that make up different combinations or levels of love that can be shared between two people. The three components are intimacy, passion, and commitment. Intimacy refers to understanding and concern for the other person. This component deals with warm affection and getting to know each other on a deeper level. Passion refers to stronger feelings of emotion, excitement and physiological attraction. This component usually deals with sexual attraction and desire. Commitment refers to the conscious decision to stay in the relationship through the ups and downs. This component deals with putting in an effort to maintain the relationship and carries a sense of devotion for that relationship. By combining any of these components, you get different varieties of love. When combining intimacy and passion you get what Sternberg calls romantic love. For example, a summer love shows high levels of intimacy and passion, but no commitment to extend the relationship further. When combining intimacy and commitment in the model you gets what's called companionate love. An example of......

Psy/220 Week 3 Checkpoint

...Empathy Exercise Gina Krazer PSY/220 December 13, 2011 Mary Jeanell Buck Snap judgments have a negative effect of hindering one’s ability to foster empathy. Often, such judgments can prove to be incorrect about a person, if the time is taken out to get to know him/her. According to Bolt (2004, p. 51), “People are not always what they seem at first glance. This is not to say that negative judgments are always erroneous or that people never contribute to their own failure, merely that life situations are unique and shape people’s actions more than we know.” Almost every individual is guilty of making these snap judgments, including myself. However, I can only think of one person that I presently have negative feelings toward. I am not in the position to say that I know this person well either. She is a coworker of mine and one certain situation influenced my judgments about her. If I found that I was wrong, I would change my opinion and work to change the basic relationship that she and I hold. The circumstances that created this snap judgment occurred during the time I was training her to be a server. On the second day of her training, I had about three tables in a row not leave any tips. Since this does not normally happen, I had suspected that she may have taken the tips, because she was cleaning all of my tables. I had my general manager check the cameras and, as I suspected, she had taken the tips. I confronted her about it and she immediately......

Prejudice A negative attitude toward an entire category of people, such as a racial or ethnic minority. Labeling theory A social theory that holds that society's reaction to certain behaviors is a major factor in defining the self as deviant. People become `deviant' because certain labels (thief, prostitute, homosexual) are attached to their behavior by criminal justice authorities and others. The resulting treatment of the individual pushes them into performing the deviant role. Also called "societal reaction" theory.
