Blind Trust, Cynicism, Fatalism and Ignorance
Working in community requires a good level of integrity that ensures good relation and right communication to the community. One should always be open-minded and be able to know people quite well before trusting them (Nietzsche & Large, 2009). One should be open to learning also and not presuming that one knows everything
How to Avoid Blind Trust
Blind trust can be avoided by exhausting all the information about a thing (Argyris, 2000). One should seek to know the extent in which they benefit and not just accepting something by its looks or because other people have trust in it. Trust should be given having exhausted all information of the subject at hand.
How to Avoid Cynism
Being cynic is where one is not proud of their attitude. To avoid it, one should examine the social networks around like friends and media (Nietzsche & Large, 2009). One should then change how to interact with the negative groups. They should engage in fun activities to make them happy
How to Avoid Being Fatalistic
Being fatalistic is thinking that the things that are happening cannot be changed. This can be avoided by thinking about what might have caused the problem then thinking of how to avoid it in the future (Argyris, 2000). It is also avoided by looking at a mistake as a result of actions rather than as a fate. Developing positive mind of every situation is the key.
How to Avoid Ignorance
This is avoided by not being a know-it-all person (Argyris, 2000). Stop pretending that you know everything and opening up to listen to new ideas and views of others. Opening up to other people’s ideas is important. Developing listening skills will also help.
All these are of significance because they help me to get involved in the community so that when I encounter problems with them I can easily fix it up and not think that I cannot change a thing. Will also help me to learn from people by opening up and not close out people’s views. It will also help in getting people involved in the child day care agency by bringing in views to bettering the agency by listening to their views and by people getting to know how the agency benefits their children as well
