For Berger is that he only saw the victims and not the thought that went with the bombing. If Japan has just surrender and gave up fighting for a war that was already a lost cost. There wouldn’t be a need to lose all those lives. So Berger may want to point out the damage that the atomic bomb has cause to the people of Japan. However he should also see that the reason for this judgment, rather than seeing it through the eyes of the victims he should consider the other side of the story. So as do not created a misunderstanding or a harsh views of the situation. So it can be said if we let our emotions get involve on our judgement it can led to misunderstanding and regrettable reactions. So in the end is it not better to make every decision by not letting one emotions to get in the way, or is it better to let it have a voice because the end justify the means?

- From the moment they wake up, people experience events that trigger certain emotions. How people react to these events may depend on that person feels during that event.

- The expression of emotions is a natural human behavior, exhibited from birth until death. Emotions give a name to the multitude of feelings and moods that a human being will experience throughout their life. Why then, does society discourage this expression.

Even young girls are subject to harmful opinions regarding the expression of emotions, commonly being dismissed as “melodramatic” or “overemotional.” Only recently have the academic and societal spheres beg...

- Before I started to research for my project, I had a little background knowledge on my topic. I knew a little about the brain and emotions, since last year in science we learnt a bit about it, but we didn’t go into any real depth. Prior to the research I knew that the amygdala, hypothalamus and pituitary gland help in producing emotions, and what an introvert and what an extravert is, but not in any real detail; I didn’t know what causes people to become an introvert or an extravert, or all of the different parts of the brain that help to create emotions and interact with others....

I chose chapter eight on emotions for my reflection paper because emotions are something that everyone has and feels, yet cannot always explain or react to in the way you would expect.

There is a common cliché that says, “don’t let one emotions cloud one judgment.” However this itself is unavoidable because everyone let their emotions have a say in their judgment whether it was the right decision or not. We like to say that every important decision is well thought out but in reality this is not possible. “A man emotions are what define him, control is the hallmark of true strength, to lack feeling is to be dead, but to act on every feeling is to be a child.”( Dalinar Kholin) This holds some truth because to make a...
