ATTITUDES







Virtually every day we are bombarded by attempts to influence the way we think, feel, and act. Advertisers try to persuade us to buy their products and services. Politicians try to influence our votes, teachers, our intellect, and religious leaders, our moral behavior. Friends influence our style of dress, vocabulary, and taste in music. Our parents often shape many of our attitudes about right and wrong behavior. We often accept ideas and attitudes without realizing how much we are influenced by the persuasiveness of others.

How do people change our attitudes? What is it about human behavior that makes us either susceptible to persuasion or resistant to it?

Attitude is everything.

ZZ.... You know well that I did my best. I don't think he is ready to change, not as yet!

Thanks Joe. You are right, attitude is great and is a marvelous thing because it has miraculous power. However, they should be shown appropriately.

It's a bad thing to hear people saying that you have attitude. It is a negative connotation.

Bay Martin said...

Yes, it exudes nega vibration, too!

It isn't really good to have the impression of being an arrogant, impolite, snobbish, pretentious,displaying an offensively superior condescending manner, etc. At all times, try to be friendly and accommodating.

Hey, ZZ, I was on phone with our friend, and he sounded like not enjoying his vacation. Just send him a text. He doesn't know your celfon number.
