I'm still thinking embarrassed since she mustered up the courage for 4 weeks, and has finally told the dr her main concern and he just shuts her down. Sure she would feel helpless later on, but DIRECTLY after the consultation she would feel embarrassed as she was already nervous to begin with. The doctors response was pretty much saying that kids nowadays take drugs and 'dismissed' her concerns by portraying it as a reality most people should know. Also, after being signalled out of the room, she would feel as if it was such a stupid question to ask, and combined with her being nervous originally to ask the question, I believe she'd be embarrassed.
So I'm thinking that helplessness would be to the secondary degree
I think all it takes is effective (and lots of) practice. I guess it may be easier for some or something like that.Originally posted by animadverted@Apr 23 2007, 12:03 AM
I don't understand how people can speed up their reading. There mightn't be much hope for me though, I read a lot and I'm still fairly slow. I think with section 1 the best way is to read through once carefully and not multiple times quickly.
oh snap. i think section 2 is pretty ridiculous. it's less about your actual empathy and emotional intelligence and more about accurate reading and knowing the fine differences between faux-synonyms. most people i know did worst in this section (although logically that cant be a pattern for everyone what with percentiles...). just look really closely at the examples in the umat practice qu's and try and discern what angle the questions are coming from and how they want you to answer them. there is a bit of a knack to it ive been told but i never got it.Originally posted by Mana@Apr 22 2007, 01:55 PM
I think section 2 is that bad... bad enough that discussion threads on mso regarding one question really really promote discussion. Also there was a significant portion of reading in section 2 questions too, but you only really need to be able to get a basic idea of the situation before you start deducing what the answer is... i kind of used gut feeling + putting myself in their position. and i failed miserably.
