Unit VI Assignment DecisionMaking Table
For this assignment, you will apply analytical reasoning and identify strategies for selfassessment to reconsider your decisionmaking patterns. You will need to complete a table with four columns to complete this task. In the first column, you will provide two personal examples where you acted in accordance with one or more of the patterns of irrational or unethical decision‐making. In the second column, you will identify which pattern(s) of irrational or unethical decision‐ making applies to your situations. In the third column, you will identify any characteristics of egocentrism or sociocentrism, as well as any pathological tendencies of mind, involved in your thought process. Finally, in the fourth column, share how you could have applied the keys to sound decision‐making to approach the situation more rationally.

embodies the way we’re capable of

doing things that can kill us and/or
