Topic: Is it true that when we most need advice we are least willing to listen to it? Or is good advice always welcome?
I believe that when we most need advice, we’re least willing to listen to it. I take my stance from personal experience, I’ve been in situations where I need advice, and where when I get it, I don’t listen to it.
Of course, my stance alone can’t speak for all. There are some people out there who may be more open minded towards good advice, and willing to accept it. However, judging from what I’ve seen from other people and myself, I keep my stance on not listening to advice when we need it.
Many times in homeschool, I’ve asked my sister for advice for essays or something, and whatever advice she gives me I usually ignore and find my own way on things. There have been multiple instances where I have ignored advice given to me when I’ve needed it, and I’ve seen people ignore the advice that was given to them. Therefore, I believe when we most need advice we are least willing to listen to it.
Topic: Is it true that acting quickly and instinctively is the best response to a crisis? Or are there times when an urgent situation requires a more careful consideration and a slower response?
I believe that certain situations, it is better to carefully consider what courses of actions to take. However, there is simply not enough time in those situations to carefully consider what to do, so many people resort to acting quickly.
There may be and are situations where acting quickly is the best option. However, I believe that there for many situations, prior training and drills could help with one’s decisions during the situation.
For example, if a fire were to occur, an escape plan would help. However, if one goes without that, I believe careful consideration would be required, as acting instinctively may strike panic, making the person’s decisions awfully dangerous.
Topic: Do we learn more from finding out that we have made mistakes or from our successful actions?
I believe that we learn more from finding out we’ve made a mistake. Successful actions do teach us something, but I believe mistakes teach us more. Like a trial and error principal, you learn how an action couldn’t be successful of you make a mistake in doing it.
You learn the wrong ways to do an action. You learn a lot more from making mistakes than you do during a successful action. Again, successful actions do help you learn. They help you learn that the way you did that action was correct.
But technically speaking, you do learn more from making mistakes. You learn the wrong ways of doing an action, which you wouldn’t have known if you successfully done the action. repetitive
The 7 Years War took place between the dates of 1750-1760, and was a war between France and Britain. There were several skirmishes prior to the war, but it was only declared in 1756.
When the war was declared, Britain made heavy military preparations, such as allying with other countries. Despite this, the British wished to avoid a massive war, and this wish was crushed when the French managed to capture an island the British had conquered almost immediately after the war was declared.

Topic: What gives us more pleasure and satisfaction: the pursuit of our desires or the attainment of them?
I believe that the attainment of our desires gives us more pleasure and satisfaction.
When we look at some of the common realistic desires showed among humanity, as more space exploration, we know that all desires have long roads in order to pursue them. However, in many circumstances, such as the ones above, the road towards them can be uncomfortable.
Further space exploration requires ships to be made, more machines to be built, potential lives lost in the process due to these machines failing. The road to it could be so rough that the attainment of this desire is a lot more pleasurable.
How about a more common desire, wanting to go to college? Homework has to get done. Tests have to be taken. Potential sleepless nights may be involved. You may be accepted or rejected.
Due to these circumstances and many others, I believe that the attainment of our desires makes us feel better than the pursuit of them. For many desires, it’s a long road ahead for those who follow them.
Topic: Is it always essential to tell the truth, or are there circumstances in which it is better to lie?
Well, in many situations I believe it would benefit all parties if the truth was told. I believe telling the truth will always lead to better circumstances, but really can’t see the benefit towards lying.
I suppose for very rare circumstances, lying could be the better option. The “ignorance is bliss” saying really is true, and lying to someone about a certain event or such might help take away the stress off the person. However, with lying, there’s always the risk of being caught lying, and being caught lying would do worse than better.
I don’t know, I think the choice of lying or telling the truth and how much good each would do really depends on the situation. I can’t speak for everything or everyone, but personally I think telling the truth is better than lying.
My favorite type of music is pop! I’d say that my music taste is fairly… generic, I’d say? But I do like other types of music, such as electroswing, EDM, country, and classical!
I think most pop songs are really catchy and enjoyable to listen to! I take fondness to the instrumentals, but I do enjoy the lyrics of many songs. I do think that vocals are fairly important to the enjoyability of a song, however if the instrumentals are good, then I’m sure I’d like the song.
Some of my favorite pop songs (at the moment) are by an artist called The Chainsmokers! I’d say their songs are a mix between pop and electronic, but I do enjoy them nonetheless.
Another few artists I like are Panic! At The Disco, Twenty One Pilots, 5 Seconds of Summer, and Charlie Puth! There are many more, but I would like to keep it short, haha…
Some of my favorite pop songs are Side Effects by the Chainsmokers, Without Me by Halsey, Just My Type by the Vamps, Lost in Japan by Shawn Mendes, Done For Me by Charlie Puth, and Ode to Sleep by Twenty One Pilots.
