Can anyone Grade my essay i have my exam on 17 th of AUG [#permalink] New post 03 Aug 2018, 04:16
Essay topics: People who make decisions based on emotion and justify those decisions with logic afterwards are poor decision makers.


The speaker statement tends to a sweeping generalization. We need to take a dialectical approach to various perspectives connected with the topic. The speaker states that people make decisions based on emotion and then later justify those decisions are rational are poor decision makers. I would like to cite several examples & reasons to substantiate my position.

Firstly, let us examine the pros and cons of the author statement and discuss examples that support the idea that people make decisions based on their actions rather emotion or logical.

The great Trolley problem which states the situation of an emotional dilemma. It states there is a trolley riding fast to the endpoint suddenly lost its brakes and in front, there are two dividing tracks, one of them are 5 people being tied and another one has only one tied to the track. In the meantime, you are being located at the junction where you can switch the tracks by pulling the lever. So here comes the emotional dilemma where you need to decide to save 5 people instead of one or vice-versa.

There are some situations where you are found to connected with your own emotions rather than the rational sense. The judge should be in a unbias way such that he is not being partial to any of these judgments. But at several times when the arbiter family is being put into the court and being the judge, he should be keeping his emotions in control so that it doesn't confront the issue. Decisions based on emotions may ruin one's life and may benefit one's life.


Situations which can be solved with some rational thinking may lead to disaster when you have emotions on board. In the late 1800's there is a famous psychology test called "The Marshmallow Test(Learn to delay Gratification)".It is a test where there are ten children who were given each one marshmallow and said them to wait for one hour to get an extra one. After one hour, some of them have eaten the marshmallow, while the other resisted eating the marshmallow and were doing some uncertain tricks to avoid the temperance of marshmallow. This shows that waiting or controlling emotions can lead to gratification rather than being complacent and feeling somber later.

Therefore, I conclude by saying that there will be situations where our emotions control by the mind and vice-versa so the speaker statement cannot be fully agreed or disagreed. The best way is to keep aside both the emotions and logic in order to succeed.

this should be still a premise and then start with the 1st paragraph.

Repetition of situation that should be followed by which not where.

The red sentence where you talk about emotions on board is not very clear.

The same thing could be said like the followin: Rational situations should be always tackled through the lens of logic BUT whether a state of emotion comes into play this could lead to a not proper focus-center evaluation.

Other grammar errors and stylish deviation.
