Angela’s Guide To: Decision-Making Process [Angela’s Ver.]

Today’s topic–>> How do you make decisions? [Angela’s Version]

Here’s my guide to my personal step-by-step decision-making process. 🙂 Enjoy~


Solution 1 2 or 3 Choice Showing Strategy Options Decisions Or Solving

Solution 1 2 or 3 Choice Shows Strategy Options Decisions Or Solving

 How do I choose what to wear, what to eat, which to buy, what song to listen to, which shoes to wear, which correct answer to a question, etcetera, you get the point? 

For me->

number-1

I narrow down my choices, make sure to choose the ones you’d probably use/do/say. Like if you were to choose from what bag to buy. I’d go for the one that would help me more on caring my stuff, or think about what the bag would be used for besides the obvious reasons. Maybe you wanna answer a question from your test, but your not quite sure which ones correct. Just try to narrow your choices and put that question as a real world problem, apply all the knowledge you have and use common sense.

number-2

Once you narrow your choices and pick your correct decision then here comes the ‘second thought process’. Make sure before you decide on this particular thing you have to have your list of pros and con, of course, pros reigning over the cons. You have to have a really good cause or reason for choosing that decision.

number-3

Last but not least, if you really can’t choose or decide, ask for an opinion or just do the random eeny, meany, miny, mo game, let the faint of your finger decide on your decision. Sounds stupid, but sometimes it might just work! 😉


 Share your part of the world by showing how you do your decision-making process, maybe it might just help someone! Hope my process helps some of you guys! 🙂

Tell Tale Heart Essay

   An assignment my class did for language arts class! 🙂

 

The ‘Tell Tale Heart’, is a short story full of suspense, which is also included in a film. The short story and the film shows the characters’ fear and anxiety, while describing dramatic sights and sounds. They also repeat words, phrases, and actions to create suspense. ‘The Tell Tale Heart’ is about a man who lives with another man that has a disturbing vulture-like eye. That makes the man go bizarre because the other’s vulture-like eye  looked mutated and disgusting, making the man very paranoid. He decides to murder the man with the abnormal-looking eye. Edgar Allan Poe, and the film maker show the ‘Tell Tale Heart’ with an abundant amount of suspense, catching the readers attention.

Poe’s story, the ‘Tell Tale Heart’, creates a lot of suspense by using a few techniques to get the reader really curious and interested. For example, in many lines of Poe’s short story, he repeats a few words and phrases now and then. Like the characters’ movements, Poe repeats the characters’ actions making it more suspenseful. The repetition creates a sense of tension making the readers hooked on the story. Poe also relatively describes the characters’ sights and sounds to something else, making it more detailed and understanding, showing great suspense.

On the other hand, the film maker, with the same ‘Tell Tale Heart’ story shows the same technique for creating suspense, but with a little something extra. Like Poe’s techniques, the film maker shows suspense using the sense of sight and hearing. Compared to the story, the film shows a somewhat higher level of suspense. This time the reader/watcher can actually see and hear what’s happening. This action creates powerful suspense that can hook the readers’/watchers’ attention. Both film and story use the same technique in different ways to catch the readers’ attention through the power of suspense.
