1.2.1 Journal: Record Your Thoughts
You're unjustly accused of stealing a bottle of water from a convenience store. What are two different ways that you might persuade the cashier that you didn't steal the water, and which do you think would be most effective?
I would explain to the cashier how reliable and responsible I am. I would probably explain to the cashier that I have never stolen anything. How I have never even been criminally charged with anything in my whole entire life. I would also suggest the cashier look at the camera footage so he and/or she would feel as though I have nothing to hide, because I would genuinely actually would want him to look to see if there is or was any evidence against me. The second alternative to persuade the cashier of my innocence. Is that I most likely probably cry and explain to him that I would have never done anything like stealing from a store, and how I had never gotten in trouble with the law or anything. The way I’d think would be the most effective is the first one. Mostly because I’m showing him that he can trust me. For example, telling him I had never stolen from anyone and that I don’t have a criminal record or suggesting the cashier go and see the security footage. Shows that I have nothing to hide because I’m telling the cashier to look at the evidence.
