I’m trying to study for my Communications course and I need some help to understand this question.
This discussion is about the impact of a self-fulfilling prophecy (see page 76 in textbook). Let us get to know one another more by continuing to learn about the other students in this course. Please remember to adhere to Netiquette guidelines (see page 8 course syllabus) so that we can share and be part of an inclusive classroom environment.
- What is the connection between the phenomenon of the self-fulfilling prophecy and your success or disappointment in performing a challenging task? Share with your classmates one incident in which the self-fulfilling prophecy you have imposed on yourself has affected your communication.
- Explain how this prediction shaped your behavior, and describe how you might have behaved differently if you had made a different prediction. If the self-fulfilling prophecy has the potential to be so powerful, why don’t we use it to our advantage more often?
Please contribute your primary post of approximately 250-350 words to our discussion. Responses (at least two) of approximately 100-130 words
