Blog #6: Reflection

a. What challenges did you overcome throughout this inquiry project? How did you go about
overcoming these challenges? 

Throughout this inquiry project one of the challenges that I had to overcome was sometimes a lack of information and resources that were easy for me to comprehend. Sometimes I would find a website or article that would be very useful, but it had quite a few complex words that I did not fully understand. To overcome this challenge, I would look up the words I did not understand in an online dictionary, or I would go on searching for another website/article that has similar contents that could be easier to comprehend. 

  1. How did this inquiry change the way you think?

This inquiry changed the way I looked at selfishness, how people around me are acting, and how I am acting. It changed the way I look at selfishness. Before this inquiry project I believed that selfishness was something that was rooted in our “human nature” therefore something that all humans possessed, later to find out that in reality is not true. 

  1. How did this investigation impact your future decisions?

This investigation made me think about how being selfish affects others around me, as well as myself. In the future I think I will be less judgmental while others are making selfish decisions or acting in self-serving ways as now, I know that from our systems to our culture it is very hard not to be selfish. While keeping this in mind I think I will also try to be more mindful of how I am acting, as I said it is very hard not to act selfish, thus making it even more important to really think about what you are doing before you are going to do it. 

  1. What impact will this investigation have on others locally and/or globally?

This investigation can help others locally and/or globally by helping change their perspective on the way humans act the way that they are, in turn this can help them try to act in less self-serving ways .
