“Decision Dilemmas” in the Skill Analysis section of Chapter 1 by Thursday, and respond to at least three other students’ posts by the end of the week.
Instructions: Read each of the short vignettes. Choose which way you would handle each decision. Then use the following questions to stimulate thoughts about each case and about yourself.
Why did you make the choice you made in each case?
What principles or basic values for decision-making did you use in each case?
What additional information would you need in order to be certain about your choices?
What circumstances might arise make you change your mind about your decision?
Could there be a different answer to each case in a different circumstance?
After answering all five vignettes reflect about: What do your answers tell you about your own emotional intelligence, values, cognitive style, attitude toward change, and core self-evaluation?
