People who were handed $200 did not change their thoughts. They were still bored with the work. People who were given one dollar, on the other hand, altered their thoughts; they believed the assignment was more intriguing than they had previously thought. This research demonstrates the consequence of weak justification. Weak justification is when someone believes a certain thing, but doesn't really feel sure about it.
We often use the word "justify" in math classes when talking about proving or disproving a statement. But we often use the word "justify" in social situations as well. For example, if you ask your friend why she thinks Obama is such a great president, your friend might say, "He has justified reason to be so because of this and that." In this case, your friend is using the word "justify" in a social context - meaning to provide a reason for something.
There are two ways to justify your thinking: logically and emotionally. Logically, you should follow the process of argumentation by analyzing cases where evidence suggests different conclusions. Emotionally, you should believe that which you intend to do or think.
For example, let's say you want to justify going to the mall on Saturday afternoons. You could analyze the situation to see if there is any good reason to go. Maybe there is a store there you have never been to before. If not, then there is no reason to go.
Why is it that the aim does not always justify the means, but the method always does? However, as children, we were taught that the "goal does not justify the means." In other words, if the techniques utilized were dishonest or detrimental to others, a nice outcome isn't so desirable.
The idea here is that since humans are rational beings, they should act accordingly. That is, they should use their reason to choose what action to take, and then follow through with this decision. However, because of our natural tendency to pursue pleasure and avoid pain, we often don't act rationally, but instead choose to follow our impulses without considering the consequences.
For example, if I want to get someone to do something for me, I might give them something they want even if this makes them feel bad about themselves. This is called "bribing" and it's a common practice in many countries where bribery is legal. The idea is that by giving people gifts they will do what you want them to do- even if this isn't true motivation behind their actions!
Another example would be telling white lies. It is normal for us to lie in order to keep peace between people, but telling small lies can have serious consequences. For example, if I tell you that my friend has tickets to the game when really she doesn't, she might think badly of me which could cause us to break up.
Not only may justification be preached wrongly, but it can also be preached poorly, mistaking a formulation of "sound" words for the real message or feeling obligated to express specific technical notions rather than the message's heart and spirit. The New Testament contains many commands and teachings on how to live justly, love mercy, walk humbly, and so forth--but also on what is called in John the Baptist's ministry "the law of Christ." This last phrase does not refer merely to what Jesus said or did, but to everything He was saying and doing throughout His public life and ministry.
Thus, it is possible for someone who believes that God justifies sinners through faith in Jesus Christ to preach incorrectly on this subject.
It is important to understand that while humans are capable of sinning and making mistakes, God is incapable of sinning and never makes a mistake. Therefore, whatever justification comes down to depends on what you believe, not who you are. If God is completely sovereign over all things and has complete control over when/if He chooses to act on our behalf, then nothing we do or don't do could possibly affect whether he decides to justify us now or later.
However, if man has any influence at all on what happens between him and God, then he could potentially affect whether God grants him justification now or later.
Because explanations are sometimes presented as reasons (excuses) for why someone's error isn't their fault and, hence, not their responsibility. Reasons are factors that make an action desirable or advantageous. An explanation is a detailed account of the cause of something.
People believe mistakes were made but not responsible because: 1 They were misled by another person 2 They didn't have all the information needed 3 They were distracted 4 They were under pressure 5 etc.
The reason why people think explanations aren't responsible is that they don't see any way in which those responsible could have prevented the mistake from happening. People believe errors weren't their fault because they believed there was no way they could have known better.
An example often used to explain this concept is that of a surgeon operating on patient X. The surgeon makes a serious error during the operation; however, since there was nothing else he could have done, it wasn't his fault. People believe surgeons aren't responsible for mistakes because they believe mistakes were unavoidable given the situation they were faced with at the time.
Another example often used to explain this concept is that of an athlete who does not perform well in an event they trained hard for.
The structure and distribution of rewards demotivates students. Students do not view their classroom environment to be encouraging. Students have competing priorities for their time and attention. They believe that the only way they will be successful is by using their time efficiently.
Students lack motivation because they expect little or no reward for their efforts. Teachers can help students see the connection between effort and outcome by demonstrating through one's behavior whether or not others appreciate one's efforts. Also, teachers can provide evidence of success by giving out awards or certificates for good work.
Finally, teachers can display high expectations for their students. If students know that hard work will pay off with positive results, they are more likely to remain motivated.
