I.- Why do people lie?
Everybody lies. It may only be “white” lies, but everyone tells lies or “omits the truth” sometimes. We start lying at around age 4 to 5 when children gain an awareness of the use and power of language. This first lying is not malicious, but rather to find out, or test, what can manipulated in a child’s environment. Eventually children begin to use lying to get out of trouble or get something they want. White lies, those concocted to protect someone’s feelings, are not a big deal at all. The person, however, who seems to feel compelled to lie about both the small and large stuff has a problem. We often call these folks pathological liars (which is a description, not a...

Lying is ubiquitous. It is seen everywhere and it is truly an art form, it comes in many shapes and forms: white lies, doublespeak, and dismissal are some of many forms of lies. Whether lying is a positive or a negative thing is a question that many people have different views on. Humans are very selfish, everyone lives for themselves, everything someone does is something that is in their best interest. Whether you're a Politician, insurance salesman, a real-estate agent, or simply just an average Joe doing nothing special you're going to be lying countless times throughout your life to people you hate and love. And that is okay because it's your life and if you can get what you want or...

“Ford Pinto Case”
After watching this video about the Ford Pinto Case, I think their decision was no ethical, because of the cost-benefit analyses they applied, trying to determine if the flaw in Ford Pinto automobiles is worth the financial risk in comparison to the value in human life, which is unconscionable and indefensible. Ford estimated that each dead that could be avoided would be worth $200.000 and each major burn injury $67.000 and average for repair cost of $700 per car involved in an accident. Moreover, it assumed that there would be 2100 burned vehicles, 180 serious burn injuries and 180 burn deaths. And when they made some math, the cost was calculated to be $137 million,...

Vygotsky is known his theory, called the Cultural-Historical Theory. This theory states that child development is the result of the interactions between children and their social environment. These interactions include those with parents, teachers, playmates, classmates, brothers and sisters. They also involve relationships with significant objects, such as books or toys, and culturally specific practices that children engage in the classroom, at home, and on the playground. Children are active partners in these interactions, constructing knowledge, skills, and attitudes and not just mirroring the world around them.
Vygotsky opposed the psychologists who believed that...

In the beginning, God created the earth and everything in it. He looked at
everything He had created and saw that it was perfect (Genesis 1:1, 31). All of God’s
creation worked together in perfect harmony. Why, then, is the world not perfect today?
In the beginning of the world, mankind fell from perfection and God made a plan to
All of God’s creation was perfect. Man was perfect because “God created man in

Self-preservation and the downfall of Salem
Self-preservation is the act of protecting one’s self. It is often correlated with pain and fear and it is regarded as a basic human instinct. People often use self-preservation to protect their image and reputation in society, thus potentially having to lie and hurt someone else’s status in the process. In Arthur Miller’s The Crucible, many characters demonstrate self-preservation to avoid the consequences of their own actions. This results in prolonging the witch trials in the town of Salem, causing the destruction of the community.
Reverend Samuel Parris is a prime example of a character that uses self-preservation throughout the play...

Smaller Objects in the Solar System
Asteroids are small, airless rocky worlds revolving around the sun that are too small to be called planets. They are also known as planetoids or minor planets. In total, the mass of all the asteroids is less than that of Earth's moon. But despite their size, asteroids can be dangerous. Many have hit Earth in the past, and more will crash into our planet in the future. That's one reason scientists study asteroids and are eager to learn more about their numbers, orbits and physical characteristics. Most asteroids lie in a vast ring between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter. The main asteroid belt holds more than 200 asteroids larger than 60 miles long. Nearly...

Growing up we are told that lying is bad and that telling the truth no matter the consequence is always the right thing to do. As we grow up we learn the difference between a bold faced lie, which always causes more damage than telling the truth, and a little white lie, which usually causes little to no harm. For example lying about stealing money from your dads’ wallet and blaming it on someone else is a bold faced lie and the other person usually faces consequences that they don’t deserve.

Now I’m not going to lie to you, I don’t attend church every single Sunday like I should but I make it when I am not working. I grew up with the tradition of going to church every Sunday but when I turned sixteen that all changed. I had a car and a job to pay for my car.

I will be writing about Harry G. Frankfurt’s piece “On Bullshit.” Which after reading the piece I was not satisfied and did a little more research about it to give me a little more insight. The piece in the book compares lying and bluffing to bullshitting. He explains that lying is a falsehood and so is bluffing. The liar and bluffer are intentionally getting the facts wrong. Bullshit on the other hand is basically a counterfeit. Frankfurt uses an older Mr. Simpson from Eric Ambler’s novel “Dirty Story” and he said to his...

Deception involves “acting in such a way which leads another person to believe something that you, yourself, do not believe to be true” (Alonso-Quecuty, 1992).

To capture the enemy's entire army is better than to destroy it; to take intact a regiment, a company, or a squad is better than to destroy them. For to win one hundred victories in one hundred battles is not the supreme of excellence. To subdue the enemy without fighting is the supreme excellence.

However, education by itself is not sufficient, it needs to be applied and acted upon and this is where experience comes in.

In Dust Tracks on a dirt road, Hurstons use of imagery, telling us about her gingham dress and how most kids did not wear shoes evoked feelings similar to those that arose as a child when children would run around without shoes, get into a scuffle or two, and be home by dinner unless you wanted a bit of a whipping with...

In most cases nowadays, the color of gold or yellow is highly regarded as a “wealthy” or “proper” color. In F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel The Great Gatsby, the author uses symbolism to show how gold is symbolic of richness and wealth, and in turn, corruption and death, with clothing/setting choice, Myrtle’s house, and Mr. Gatsby’s car.
According to John Green, when Gatsby talks about his first meeting with Daisy, it is apparent that Gatsby is more in love with her mansion than Daisy herself. Green also points out the not-so-obvious fact that when Daisy and Gatsby finally meet again, everything is yellow. Gatsby’s suit, Daisy’s buttons, Gatsby’s Windows, and even the flowers outside...

The two psychological perspectives I have talked most about are the humanistic and cognitive approaches.
Humanistic theory says we are all unique, that we have free will and free choice. We all have certain needs that have to be met. So energy is focused on most basic physiological needs first before we can progress through the higher level needs. Humanistic theory also says that we are motivated to reach our full potential. This is self-actualisation. In residential care it is important that we help and encourage residents to move through this hierarchy...

Some people think that heartbreak is the worst feeling in the world. Many relationships have gone wrong, leaving more questions than answers.
