Tannen discusses her experiences and states that we are more confrontational and less open to others.
In reading "Mistakes were Made but Not by me," multiple accounts are given of traits exhibited by humans that are displayed subconsciously. The authors, Carol Tavris and Elliot Aronson, begin by defining these traits and give readers the actual terminology to these characteristics. With various examples being provided to the reading audience they are then able to make a clear correlation between the behaviors displayed and how they may impact not only themselves but others around them. "Mistakes were Made but Not by me" has a theme which is centralized around the two key facets which are cognitive dissonance and self- justification.
Most studies support the association between discrepancies and negative mood” (2012). This explains why I would often get irate at the slightest remark that had no intent of offending. A prime example that comes to mind is my body image issues I had growing up. In high school, I had a poor self-concept, and it was linked to my obesity. I would always take an innocent remark as a personal attack. Today, I am no longer overweight and have gained more confidence in myself. However, I still find myself going back to my old ways occasionally, which is probably irritating for the person I am communicating with. I am going to better myself by rationally accessing the situation before jumping to any

We don’t complain enough. Is the simply and unique argument that Buckley is presenting in his essay. The purpose of this essay is to convince Americans that it’s time to start complaining. Instead of simply pushing aside the issues that are present to us on a daily bases Buckley wants us to confront them head on and to simply speak up. Instead of dealing with hot trains, an unfocused movie screen and long line that is caused from a supposedly lazy worker, we should speak up because we have the power to change the little problems. Buckley is afraid that if we continue to show apathy towards small problems then we will continue this

What precipitates all my stress is the lack of communication with my husband and the need I have to be listened too. When there is a lack of communication between my husband and I, this makes me feel alone and in a way I recent him for it. I also get angry, but a lot of this anger is gear toward me because I should be able to cope with my problems in a healthy manner. I also do not want to depend on the feedback from others to feel better. Although I would love to have someone, I can talk to, I do not want to play the role of victim, so most of the times I end up bottling everything up, which I know only exacerbates the problem and my negative though and my imagination take over and I go immediately to the worst possible scenario and negative though.
For example, we get stress from family, relationships, school-like having to give a speech in front of people, financial problems, and arguments, but for a lot of people, it’s WORK.

If I learned that several people received a higher raise then me at my job, I would be extremely angry. Regardless of the amount, I would want an explanation. However I still have a job to do. I would complete the meeting with my client and try to calm my self down with positive self-talk. I would say things like, I know I better than this, don’t be angry, being angry is for the weak. For me just doing positive self talk is not enough for me when I am angry I would also have to squeeze a ball or do pushup. My favorite coping skill is to exercise, when I am finished exercising I am always to tired to be angry. In fact I would think hat it would be best for me to approach my supervisor another day. I think a more appropriate day would be on a Monday, when my supervisor is back from spending time with his family. Through my experience I have realized that if I want to have a effective conversation, having that conversation with someone on a Friday is not the best idea. Normally people are only focused on going home and being with their family on Fridays. I think that the least effective skill for me to use is journal writing because it just makes me even angrier that I am writing. I do not like to write or even type, but it is a necessity to studying in America so it something that I have to do but not want to do.
