HUM101 Discussion Forum
Im studying and need help with a Social Science question to help me learn.
It should be noted that this is one of the toughest professors I have ever been graded by. I felt like your last post and assignments you wrote were, “TOP NOTCH!!” He gave me a 12 out of a possible 25 points on the discussion forum and an 80% for the 4 page APA written essay. He goes strictly by the rubric and the posted questions. Not an easy class, and by far, not an easy A.

Discerning Fallacies and Cognitive Biases in Our Thinking
A) Where do you see sociocentrism at work in your own thinking or the thinking of those around you? Why is sociocentrism detrimental to critical reasoning?
B) As you think about your personal goals and aspirations, what cognitive fallacies outlined by Wilke and Mata (2012) might impede your growth? What active steps might you take to recognize and combat such fallacious forms of thinking?
