Making Decisions

Read Through Chapter 5-13 to do this assignment!!!! Pick a decision you made recently that has had an important consequences for you.  It may be your decision about which college to attend, which major to select, or which job to take.  Using the material in this chapter, analyze how you made the decision and be prepared to share it with the class.   Each question is worth 4 points; either full credit or no credit will be issued. Identify the criteria you used, either consciously or subconsciously, to guide your decision making. List the alternatives you considered. Were they all possible alternatives?  Did you consciously or unconsciously ignore some important alternatives? Try to remember how you reached the decision. Did you sit down and consciously think through the implications of each alternative, or did you make the decision on the basis of intuition?  Did you use any rules of thumb to help make the decision? Do you think in retrospect that you made a reasonable decision? What, if anything, might you do to improve your ability to make a good decision in the future?
