I can tell he is very defensive in his speech because he says “Lord Sugar with the greatest respect that’s an exaggeration”. Jim is trying to persuade Lord Sugar he is incorrect in his thinking. However, Lord Sugar is not taking what Jim has said into account. Even though Jim is trying to tell Lord Sugar he is wrong in his thinking, he still addresses Lord Sugar in a formal way, this is most likely because he feels threatened by Lord Sugar and knows he has the power to ‘fire’ Jim, this is due to the control Lord Sugar has over the contestants. So Jim knows he must consistently respect Lord Sugar, even though he can say what he wishes to. Jim uses a very anxious tone to say this quote; this suggests he is trying to cover up he has done something wrong. Jim accuses the other contestants, trying to get himself out of trouble, he knows that if he -takes the blame Vincent is more likely to take him back in to the boardroom. The word “exaggeration” means Lord Sugar is making a bigger deal out of a situation than it actually is. This could also suggest Jim is trying to show up Lord Sugar as someone who over-exaggerates.
Jim was brought up as a Methodist. He became quickly fascinated with the pulpit oratory. Vera Price, a childhood playmate remembers, ”He’d always be the preacher, standing up making sermons”(Axthelm 54). Even at the young age of seven Vera, recalls Jim’s speeches encouraging strict discipline. She remembers occasions when Jim was playing with other children and “he’d hit them with a stick and make them cry. He had a power that most boys don’t have”(Axthelm 54). As Jim matured into a young adult this internal power he possessed was not fully matured. In high school Jim was in the popular crowd, but never the leader of the pack. “Only in retrospect does anyone claim to have spotted seeds of the horror to come.’ I had a hunch something bad was going to happen to him,’ says a middle-aged man in Lynn. He was smart as a whip. But he had some strange ideas. He never fit in with the town. He was different”(Axthelm 54).
In addition to Jim's superstitious nature, throughout the novel he also demonstrates gullibility. A good example of this
I thought about a conversation I had with Jim weeks before this project which covered my worst subject of politics. I tend to know Jim gets angry about this and goes off the deep end with conspiracy theories. I could recall and explain back to my daughter what he said several days later even though I couldn’t stand listening to him when he was discussing it at the time,
the beliefs that were implanted into him by society. He would mock Jim, but now- after all
The first professional organization that I will always have as a resource is the University of Phoenix. Using the resources that are offered during enrollment and after graduation will be instrumental to achieving my goal. Another professional organization is the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE). ACHE offers membership to students and to heath care professionals. ACHE members can access mentoring, coaching, and the career resource center to help build strong heath care executives. ACHE states, “A mentoring partnership involves developing trust, investing feelings and energy and sometimes taking risks by challenging a partner’s self-image (American College of Healthcare Executives, 2014, p. 1).
Thanks to his strong personality and nature, Jim develops into a wonderful man by the end of the novel, despite having gone through many difficult times. He used these tragedies to form himself into a strong person, instead of allowing it to break him down. When he was very young, he was orphaned, and sent to live in a new state, ‘I was ten years old then; I had lost both my father
Jim is highly respected around his family because he had served in the military, and was enlisted for six years. He is successful
I learned that our thinking can make bad decisions. Our thoughts can change with comparing things. We can say no to one thing, but if it is compared to something else that can change our mind. The comparison can make things look different in our mind to make us make a different decision. The information that I learned is important because it helps you to look at things differently now. Sometimes it is best to stick with your first choice or decision and can cause an irrational decision.
But not me. I do not understand. Well, it might have something to do with forces on him and n0t me. He is hanging along with the crew much more now, so possibly there are waves of confidence floating out to Jim. In real life, I would say that if someone were to be quieter and shy like Jim, then if they had friends who weren’t, that would affect them. What is that force called? Oh yeah, it is called the force of influential advantages. I don’t really know, I just made that up.
Houston’s very own medical center, I will obtain all of the mentioned degrees. According to UT
*For instance, He tried to convince Kevin that he could fight Mike even though in the end he wasn’t able to beat him. This shows that he had overestimated himself because towards the end we had found out that Kevin was actually correct. *In addition, Jim acted confident when people questioned him about the fight or if he was really going to fight Mike. This is significant because in the end, Jim, instead of winning, lost! *Finally, he was trying to show his ex-girlfriend that he could really take down Mike because he was jealous and wanted her back because the story states that; “ I had foolishly broken up with her ten months before.”. Jim may feel that way about Linda, (his ex), Linda probably doesn’t feel that way about him because in the story she states; “Kill him! Kill him!”. To summarize, Jim has a pretty big ego, and I believe that he had taken it for granted. Because soon enough, he’s going to lose
would be a good idea to offer me an opportunity to help people and make
Jim had become fed up with Irene’s obsession with the enormous radio. He did not understand why she listened to it so intently if all it did was bring her misery. Meanwhile, Irene constantly nagged at Jim for even an inch of reassurance that they had better lives than those on the radio. Jim fought himself to hold in all his built up anger and frustration towards his wife and replied "Of course we’re happy" (Cheever 823). Jim knew that they had just as many problems as the next family. He tried to discuss them with his wife, but as TaVeta Smith points out, she "doesn’t address Jim’s concerns at all" (59).
