1. Assignment: Changing Perspective Paper This course has discussed how people look at life events differently. Many factors influence how people as individuals may view a situation. Just as people can make snap judgments about a person, they can also make those same judgments about situations. · Consider the following scenario: A man rode on a train, for example, and observed a woman in the seat across the aisle from him with two children. The children were being loud and were fighting. When one of the children knocked over the man’s coffee, he became aggravated and asked the woman, who sat there staring out the window, if she could control her children. The woman turned to the man half- coherent and apologized, explaining that she and her children were coming from the hospital where their father, her husband, had just passed away. Immediately, this changed how the man viewed the situation. · Describe a situation that might be viewed differently by two people. This event can be as minor as an encounter on the street or as major as the birth of a child. · Summarize how it could be viewed differently. How might religious, cultural, or personal beliefs influence how this event is interpreted? How might a person’s mood, personality, or situation influence how he or she interprets this event?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
