7. Exercise • I’m going to present an image of people in rush hour in NYC; I’ll have an arrow pointing to one person. • I want you to write down the following: • Is this morning or afternoon rush? What gave you the clue? • What type of work do you think that person does & why you thought that? • What do you think that person is thinking? • If you were given $1000 to help that person in some way other than giving it directly to them, how would you go about doing it? Why did you select this choice?

8. Exercise (Again) • I’m going to again present the same image of people in rush hour in NYC; I’ll have an arrow pointing to a different person. • I want you to write down the following: • What type of work do you think that person does & why you thought that? • What do you think that person is thinking? • If you were given $1000 to help that person in some way other than giving it directly to them, how would you go about doing it? Why did you select this choice?

9. Next Step • For both your responses, categorize what your answers were into the following: What was factual? (What could I actually see…) What did I infer? (What did I believe may be occurring…) Why did I think that? (Any prior event that to led my thinking…)
