     I am independent, frank, and very nonchalant. I have picked these three words because I think that they accurately describe my personality. I would say that I am independent because I am able to rely on myself. I have a high sense of pride and really don’t like to ask for help because of that I make it a point to make sure that I can do things on my own.

    I would say that I am frank because I don’t like to hide what it is that I am thinking. If I feel it I will say it and pride myself on being the person who says what others want to say but won’t. With that said, I am not a trouble maker and don’t just go around raining on others parades but I will give you my honest opinion if you ask for it and sometimes when you don’t.

     Finally to describe myself I would say that I am nonchalant. I tend to be very Zen for the most part. I don’t bother other people and try my best to treat others the way I would treat myself. I don’t like a lot of drama or trouble so I tend to stay to myself to remain stress free.

I personally feel that being self-reliant is a gift and not everyone can be or is that way. I like that fact that I work for my own things and that I don’ have to ask anyone for anything most of the time.

     When it comes to self-serving bias I don’t think that I have a defensive attribution. I say this because I don’t think that outside sources cause failure. I feel that if I fail it is my own doing that has caused it. For instance, when interviewing for a job. I don’t think that a person that is picked over me is the reason I didn’t get the job, I think it is because the skill set needed isn’t something I possess. And in order to fix that I need to prepare better for the future. Hence me deciding to go to the University of Phoenix.

     The term confirmation bias is a subject that I really had to think about when it came to me. I tend to think that I am pretty opened minded and figure if the shoe doesn’t fit that try another one on. But in saying that I wonder if I look for characteristics of me that makes the belief that I am open minded a reality. SO honestly I would have to say that I am not sure if confirmation bias influences me on the way I think about myself and others.

   I think of the saying “so ...
