Wise Judgment Scenario 2 The scenario that I have chosen to discuss and evaluate is the first scenario. This involves a seventeen-year-old boy, and a teenage girl who is “in love “with her teenage boyfriend? The teenage boyfriend is encouraging her into having sex with him, by saying that he will make sure that they only have “protected” sex. This scenario is missing some key information in my opinion. Such as: do these two teenagers attend, school, how long have the two been dating, how old is the teenage girl, and is the seventeen – year old boy having the same feelings as the teenage girlfriend. This scenario does not have enough adequate information, to make a full judgment; therefore, to determine the best solution, or appropriate action in this situation. I will apply the five components of wise judgment to make a decision based on the information provided. I will start this evaluation by determining the interests, and goals of these two individuals. Then I will determine both the short and long – term interests of these two teenagers. Next, I will examine the choices to adapt, shape, or by selecting a new environment, which will help in determining the appropriate course of action amongst these two individuals, using knowledge as a tactic. Finally, I will then apply the five components of wise judgments to this scenario of these two teenagers. In addition, I will provide a decision to the course of action that I have chosen.

The teen girls’ interest is not stated, but as the scenario mentions that, the teen boy is

Wise Judgment Scenario 3 encouraging the teen girlfriend to have protected sex with him; therefore, the teen girl is unsure that she is ready to have intercourse (protected or unprotected) with her teen boyfriend, this is what I have gathered from the scenario. Determining Short and Long - Term Interest The teen boys’ short- term is to have protected intercourse with his teen girlfriend, and the short-term interest of the teen girl (who is “in love” with her teen boyfriend) is not mentioned. However, the teen girl is indeed “in love” with her teen boyfriend. In my opinion consequently, the teen girl wants to continue to feel love, and the feeling of being “in love” with teen boyfriend, as does anyone who has ever experienced love. The long-term for this teen boy and girl are not mentioned, although the scenario does imply
