time but they get in the way of critical thinking because they shorten the response and thought. Our belief perseverance we go in a conversation with experiences and opinions this may hold back the conversation and we tend to stick our personal beliefs and they become obstacles. Answering the wrong question is a fear because we do not want to be wrong and we feel like people would look down upon us as bad questionnaires and failure. In Ten Little Indians Sherman Alexie gives us a certain amount of detail for students to either relate or be interested in and he has a methodology behind his masterpiece. Alexie relies on the mind in order for us to use our brains to paint pictures in our heads. He has used the methodology of critical thinking by defending certain characters and evaluating their actions and opinions of how they would react to certain situations. Alexie knows his audience and knows what grabs their attention and this makes readers relate when he talks about real-world situations. There are so many stereotypes of Indians and he lays out what they practice and why they practice this may be the reason Alexie talks so much about Indians. Beliefs and morals are what Alexie tries to describe Indians just like in “do not go gentle” the parents did not lose hope they did what the believed what would wake up there baby and with their morals and beliefs there wish came true.
