This would have been a great reference point to begin with. Despite not being able to implement the rational model there were some strengths as well as weaknesses during this process.

Decision making is a mechanism for making choices at each step of the problem-solving process (Nahavandi, 2015, p. 238). I believe brainstorming in conjunction with utilizing the rational decision making model will be the best way to solve the problem at hand. The rational decision making model, or Model I, can be describes as focusing on the goal as well as strategies and tactical to reach that goal. The goal is to accept the task if the organization can afford it. By accepting…
of the Rational Choice Theory When analyzing the rational choice theory, I remain committed to the opinion that crime is committed out of personal gain. There is this theory that tells us that people are able to make clear and concise decisions, knowing full well what those decisions are. This theory is known as the rational choice theory. Not only does the rational choice theory tell us people make the decision to do what they want to do when committing crimes, they are “rational” in…
there are two types of responses to whistleblowing. You are either a loyal person to your business or country or wherever you are currently employed or you are a disloyal person. But this is far from the truth. In the article, Whistle Blowing and Rational Loyalty, written by authors: Wim Vandekerckhove and M. S. Ronald Commers, the notion of loyalty to one entity is broken down into multiple categories. The argument in the article is that there is no real loyalty to a company because a company…
Are the criminals rational decision makers, or are they motivated by uncontrollable psychological and emotional drives? It depends on the person and the crime as well. Most of the crimes seem to be motivated by uncontrollable psychological and emotional drives, but if we analyzed deeply we may find out that that they are rational. For example serial killers it looks they are drive by emotions, but if we look the victims we will found that the victims are very similar. They are not random; they…
In fourth grade various new math ideas are presented and many students can face difficulties when new material is introduced. Difficulties are especially displayed when it comes to discovering decimals. Although decimals are introduced in fourth grade they are continuously presented in math thereafter. One common misconception held about decimals is the idea that the more digits that are presented in a number, the greater the value of the number. An example of this is students believing that 3…
For this curriculum study, I chose third grade mathematics as my unit of study. As far as my objectives go, I would want my students to walk away from this particular section of fractions with the understanding of what a fraction is, the difference between the components of a fraction such as the numerator and denominator, knowing how to identify how many parts of a whole are shaded in, and knowing how to simplify a fraction. As far as my instructional method, I created an original prezi, which…
effective method is adopting a rational-emotive outlook to patient-physician relationships. The rational-emotive approach to emotions means to fill oneself with “rational thoughts and self-talk,” (185) in other words, to adopt a mindset full of “positive thoughts and helpful constructive criticism.” I cannot hope to counsel my patients on how to live their lives if I myself am struggling with my own advice. To a…
“Make a rational choice,” how many times have you used this phrase or heard other people use it? Numerous times right? Whenever we are receiving or giving advice, we try to focus on the rationale. So what is a rational choice? According to a traditional model of rational choice theory, a choice is considered rational if it is expected to maximize utility. Usually, any choice that tends to increase the level of satisfaction is considered to be rational. To have a better understanding of the…
Rational Thinking According to Popkin and Stroll, logic can be defined as the most fundamental branch of philosophy that “deals with the nature of thinking itself” (237). However, the depth of understanding logic is so much more than ethical speculations and metaphysics. Whether or not something is deemed logical, depends on how consistent and coherent any particular piece of that reasoning is, as logic attempts to distinguish good reasoning from bad reasoning. This then can determine whether…
