Consider the following scenario: A man rode on a train, for example, and observed a woman in the seat across the aisle from him with two children. The children were being loud and were fighting. When one of the children knocked over the man s coffee, he became aggravated and asked the woman, who sat there staring out the window, if she could control her children.

Consider the following scenario: A man rode on a train, for example, and observed a woman in the seat across the aisle from him with two children. The children were being loud and were fighting. When one of the children knocked over the man s coffee, he became aggravated and asked the woman, who sat there staring out the window, if she could control her children. The woman turned to the man half coherent and apologized, explaining that she and her children were coming from the hospital where their father, her husband, had just passed away. Immediately, this changed how the man viewed the situation.

Describe a situation that might be viewed differently by two people. This event can be as minor as an encounter on the street or as major as the birth of a child.

Summarize how it could be viewed differently. How might religious, cultural, or personal beliefs influence how this event is interpreted? How might a person s mood, personality, or situation influence how he or she interprets this event?
