Response: Power Of Situation
Response: Power Of Situation. This discussion asks that we relate a personal, historical incident where our actions conflicted with our beliefs. After a typical summer of working on the family farm, I returned to the town where I attended high school. Upon arriving I was surprised by a call from one of my friends offering me a job at the state fair. He explained that his dad had some connections and that there was an opportunity to work for a timeshare resort in Missouri. All that was needed of myself, and four others, was to meet with the single representative of the company and learn what was required. At that meeting we five compadres were told three things; Show up on time, wear a white shirt and tie, and a secret that we could tell no one if we wanted to be paid at the end of the fair. The promotion was that by completing a card, a person would be entered into a drawing for a free weekend at the resort. The reality was that everybody who completed the card- well almost everybody, would be invited for a weekend, and the ?free weekend was littered with timeshare promotions. The secret was about the cards that were to be inserted into a small box in front of each of the five of us, and the prospective customers who filled out the cards. The box had a narrow slit at the center of the top to allow only a single card to be entered at a time. At the back of the box was an almost invisible string. If a black person completed a card, we were to covertly pull the string and divert the card which was then discarded. I wanted the job, but felt that the obvious racism was problematic. Yet none of us said a word until we were walking away from that meeting, and out of earshot. I voiced to my friends my concern that this was obviously racist. My four friends offered several arguments; If we don’t do this, he will just find five people who will. We can’t change this and we will lose a chance to make a good amount of money. We are doing these folks a favor by keeping them from a place that does not want them. Every business has a right to decide who they want as customers. After this rebuttal, I stopped voicing my concerns and agreed to do as the representative required but I didn’t. I did not pull the cord, but I did not tell anyone. In fact, I never told them. In retrospect, several social psychological factors influenced my behavior. This incident was a source of cognitive dissonance, in that my personal beliefs were at conflict with my resultant behavior (Aronson et al., 2019, p.134). My personal belief was that this was an obvious, illegal, and discriminatory practice. Nonetheless, I chose not to raise this objection with the resort representative, and when able to discuss it with my fellow hiree’s, I quickly complied with the group. I was able to resolve my dissonance by thinking that while I would not act on the instructions provided, I would not risk my exclusion from the group by voicing my concerns. That is, the logic that they applied in accepting their willingness to ‘pull the string’ was an attempt on their part to avoid discomfort to the black community, who would feel ill at ease if they were to accept the invitation to the resort. I elected to comply publicly. In this situation, I felt that there was significant threat, and loss of reward in a public display of noncompliance (Aronson et al., 2019, p.178). This dissonance extinguished, for the most part, any intrinsic motivation. What remained was a simple extrinsic motivation. The reward was a relatively large amount of money, and the continued acceptance by my friends (p. 134). I felt the pressure from my fellow hirees, who were also my friends, to comply. I no longer looked forward to the job, but focused on the reward, and my continued group compliance. In addition, psychological factors that predisposed to racial prejudice may be a social psychological event, and have significant influence on individuals. A study that took place in a highly segregated society pointed out the degree of prejudice is a property of the social context (Duckett, 1998, pp. 417-418). Thus, the degree to which the lack of diversity in my high school experience may have also influenced my decision to remain silent. Nonetheless, only extrinsic motivation remained. I justified my compliance based on the monetary reward (Aronson et al., 2019, p.164). The impact of this incident lingered long after the actual event. As noted, I never discussed my noncompliance with the request of our employer. I told neither my fellow hirees, nor the supervisor in charge, that I never pulled the string. From that, I assume, that I valued normative compliance within my group, and ignored my original concerns about the social injustice perpetuated by the resort, and confirmed by the behavior of my friends. That is, I relied on external justification; the monetary reward, and the avoidance of punishment by exclusion from the group (Aronson et al., 2019, p.164). I do not feel that I regarded the resort representative as an authoritarian figure, and hence, compliance, on my part was not a reflection of the classical acceptance of authority as described in a recount of the classical experiments of Milgram, as described in the text (Aronson et al., 2019, p.250). In summary, I was able to decrease cognitive dissonance, and alter my motivation for accepting a short-term job that was discriminatory. I focused on the rewards, and accepted the arguments of my fellow hirees, who were also my friends. I complied with the group externally. I did not actually exclude anyone from the promotion. Nonetheless, my fear of non-normative compliances within my group was significant. So much so, that while I was able to justify my own actions in that I did not ?pull the string’, I considered my appearance of social compliance to be paramount, and never expressed my true action, or feelings. Be sure to support your postings and responses with specific references to the social psychology theory and research. In addition to the Learning Resources, search the Walden Library and/or Internet for peer-reviewed articles to support your post and responses. Use proper APA format and citations.

PLEASE GIVE REFLECTIONS 400 WORD COUNT EACH
6. Focus on the present. I’m talking about the present?not today, not this hour, only this exact moment. You might be getting chewed out by your boss, but what in this exact moment is happening that’s so bad? Forget the comment he made five minutes ago. Forget what he might say five minutes from now. Focus on this one, individual moment. In most situations, you’ll find it’s not as bad as you imagine it to be. Most sources of negativity stem from a memory of a recent event or the exaggerated imagination of a potential future event. Stay in the present moment. 7. Find positive friends, mentors and co-workers. When you surround yourself with positive people, you’ll hear positive outlooks, positive stories and positive affirmations. Their positive words will sink in and affect your own line of thinking, which then affects your words and similarly contributes to the group. Finding positive people to fill up your life can be difficult, but you need to eliminate the negativity in your life before it consumes you. Do what you can to improve the positivity of others, and let their positivity affect you the same way. Almost anybody in any situation can apply these lessons to their own lives and increase their positive attitude. As you might imagine, positive thinking offers compounding returns, so the more often you practice it, the greater benefits you’ll realize.

Conflicting Viewpoints Essay – Part II
When looking for information about a particular issue, how often do you try to resist biases toward your own point of view? This assignment asks you to engage in this aspect of critical thinking. Write at three to four (3-4) page paper in which you address the following: Restate your topic from Assignment 1, give your position on the topic, and explain why you chose that topic. Identify two (2) opposing views on the topic, and then present the view that you’ll try to defend in the assignment. Be prepared to support your opinion with academic sources. Identify three (3) reasons to support your position. In separate paragraphs, go through each reason and describe why it supports the position you took in the first section. Go back to your Believing Game answers from Assignment 1. Describe why you thought those responses were true. What led you to ?believe’ things in that way? Was it an expectation (straw man) or did you truly examine what they were saying? Identify at least two (2) biases you experienced in your examination of the topic. How did the biases support or contradict the position you took? Did the biases create a barrier to your thinking? Since we all have biases or opinions, how did your own background shape the way you felt about the topic you presented in the first section? Now that you have used the Believing Game, has your thinking about the topic changed? If so, why? If not, why not? The paper should follow guidelines for clear and organized writing: Include an introductory paragraph and concluding paragraph. Address main ideas in body paragraphs with a topic sentence and supporting sentences. Adhere to standard rules of English grammar, punctuation, mechanics, and spelling. Follows APA citation rules.

Assignment outline: The first step towards completing this assignment is to identify an interesting political question that you’d like to investigate further. You might use your own country or your ?adopted country as a source of inspiration for this question, but it is not necessary that you do so. You will use this to generate a more general research question that will apply across multiple countries. Your next task is to write a critical essay of no more than 2500 words in which you compare and contrast a pair of academic papers attempting to answer your question. You must clearly explain the specific question each of these papers is attempting to answer, and the main argument from each piece. Taking into account the quality of the theoretical argument, methodological approach, and value of statistical findings, you will decide which of the arguments you find most convincing, and explain why you arrived at that conclusion. Finally, you will find and clearly state two possible objections that might be raised against your preferred piece. This may involve criticism of the theory, methodology, or statistics used in the piece. Grading criteria: Your responses will be graded based on the quality of your research question, the thoroughness of your research efforts, the quality of your research analysis, and the quality of your writing.

N491 Assignment Mod 7
Your assignment this week will be an APA paper to include title page, level headings, and a reference page. Case Study The hospice nurse sat with Ann’s husband, Ben. Ann was resting quietly as the increased dosage of IV pain medication gradually reached its therapeutic level. Ben turned his head and slowly turned, looking out the room’s only window. As he glanced up, a small flicker of light caught his breath. It was a shooting star. A tear fell from the corner of his eye and he turned to Ann. The nurse sensed that something significant to Ann and Ben was unfolding. Shuffling to Ann’s bedside, he took her small fragile hand in his. These hands had rocked cradles, burped babies, and groomed the horses she loved to ride. Gently holding her hand, he turned to the nurse. “She would ride like the wind was chasing her.” Looking back to Ann his voice broke; choking back tears “Ann, Ann I saw Jessie Jessie is calling.” Ben turned “Jessie was our daughter. She died having a baby that was too big. When she died it was a pitch-black night. Cold, so cold, the baby died too, a little boy, named him Abe, Jr. after Jessie’s husband. I took Ann outside so she could cry to God above and there in this dark sky we saw two falling stars together just falling. We knew it had to be Jessie and Abe two angels to light up the night.” Ben turned back as a deep sigh escaped from Ann’s lips. A soft smile remained as she joined Jessie and Abe. Based on this case study how would the nurse actualize Parse’s theory of Human Becoming? What are characteristics of a human becoming nurse? What are strengths and weaknesses to this theory of nursing? What challenges exist for healthcare institutions to switch to this nursing approach? How might Parse’s understanding of transcendence guide the nurse, as Ann’s death became a reality to Ben? From the nursing theories we have discussed, what additional theory would you apply to this case study? Develop a plan of care to include both nursing theories (be specific and provide reasons) The APA formatted paper should include 2 outside references and your book. The essay should be between 1250 and 1500 words in length.
