A score of 3.5 or higher indicates a belief that using systematic decision making is useful. If you believe it is useful, you will be more apt to use systematic decision making.

She asks A to take her to East Island, but he does not want to hear about her problems or become involved in them. He wants to be left alone. B offers to take X to East Island, but only after she spends the night with him first. She agrees. The next day, after X has gotten over to East Island, C discovers the circumstances under which she got there and wants nothing to do with her. D, on the other hand, doesn't care what she's done or why. He'll take her under any circumstances. 107 gre06755_ch08.qxd 4/22/05 11:10 AM Page 107...

    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.

    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.
