The course textbook identifies four individual decision-making styles: individualist, altruist, pragmatist, and idealist. In this activity, your instructor will assign you to a group of your peers, and each group will be assigned its own discussion forum. Each member of the group will take on the characteristics of one of the four decision-making styles and explain how that style would affect the way he or she would communicate, negotiate, and apply this to interpersonal situations.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
