while watching the 3 presentations "If we learn from our mistakes why are we so afraid to make them" The first presentation mention how us humans hate to be wrong and love the sense of control and always be right . I agree with my classmate because in away I can connect to the fact I hate being wrong I always feel like I need to have the last word . Other factors to this also are I fear to be wrong and I'm afraid of judgement not only with people but consciously . Another reason in wanting to avoid mistakes we've encountered and learned from are because the process to some can be painful and us humans want to avoid hurting and going through the same thing and some things should not be repeated .
they say were scared to make a mistake because people may judge us and no one likes to be judged
I say we make mistakes to learn from them and were scared to make them again be cause we don't want to be called losers or something much worse
While listening to the presentations on Thursday, my first classmate said that humans hate to make mistakes and that we hate to be wrong, but in the end we learn from them. Another student said it is in our nature to fear failure, but it is ok to have fear because it will push us to become better. I agree with everything they say. Nobody likes to fail, we feel a sense of embarrassment or even anger when once makes mistakes. We fear to fail because we don't want repeat the same mistakes, we don't want to be seen as failures or be put down by others.
We are afraid of making mistakes because we are afraid of being judged by society, I think that everyone is somewhat afraid of failure and making mistakes, it's human nature. We also fear the aftermath of the mistake, what is going to happen to us, what consequences are we going to have because of our mistake.
I agree with my fellow classmates and what they had to say about the topic. They said that we’re afraid to make mistakes but in reality mistakes are super normal. It’s sometimes hard to get where you want to be, but in order to get there you have to make mistakes and learn from them. I think we’re afraid to make mistakes because it’s reality and most people don’t like dealing with reality.
Our classmates said we can learn from mistakes but our fear makes us lose our head. Then we will make a mistake again. I agree with this perspective. However, more important is that life is different from exercise. The ways that the mistakes appear are variable. Sometimes the mistakes are too vague for us to recognize. Then we will make a mistake again.
I agree with classmates #1 and #2 because I think humans do always want to be right and because it’s something natural to feel judged when you make a mistake and therefore we are afraid. On the other hand I disagree with #3 because I’m reality we don’t usually think about “how far the consequences will go”. We make mistakes and then realize the consequences.
We are not afraid of making mistakes in life, we are afraid of the consequences. The mistake itself does not matter. What happens next depending on if you succeed or fail, can have an impact on you for the rest of your life. this is what most people are afraid of, hence the term a calculated risk. While we can learn from all the mistakes we make, that does not mean we can always recover or go back to how we were before doing it. Example being you break your neck on a flip. This is why we are scared of mistakes. Not to make them, but the effects they could have
I agree with my classmate that although a mistake was made, the mistake itself doesn’t matter, it’s what you do after. Learning from mistakes is crucial in life because it’ll determine how if the outcome is going to make you a better person or is it going to dig you a hole.
I believe that people are afraid of making mistakes because although we learn from them, some mistakes won’t give you a second chance. Simple mistake can become a great learning experience. And some mistakes are irreversible. For example, someone can kill someone out of emotion and yes they can learn their lesson but now they are spending thier life in jail.
People are afraid from making mistakes in the fears of being judged. No one really likes to be judged or they are looking for someone's approval. Making a mistake is just a life lesson, and those who try and fail, only learn more more life lessons. So why be afraid? It's as simple as being perfect, or the embarrassment that the mistake may bring upon yourself. I've made many mistakes throughout my short life, and with each mistake i only rise stronger from the ashes.
During this presentation, the presenters said that as humans we try our best to avoid mistakes and only strive for the best possible outcomes. Mistakes are nothing new, and no matter what there is alway a learning lesson that comes out of it. They said that as humans, we know mistakes can happen, and tend to affect us depending on their severity. Some mistakes we can brush off, but others scar us so much that they can make us close off any future opportunities because of the potential mistakes we could make. All in all, these presenters said although we try our best to avoid mistakes, we always learn from them.
Personally, I agree to an extent because I do believe that no matter what mistakes do in fact always teach us a lesson. Whether they are big or small, they always give us knowledge we didn't have prior to making them. I don't think making mistakes could close us off from new opportunities, but rather prompt us to try harder in everything we do so that there is more success to look forward to. In any case, I believe humans always try their very best at any task they do, whether it's small or grand. In the end, any mistakes that result will always serve a purpose in teaching us new things we did not know before.
I agree with my classmates on the issue of being afraid to make mistakes since it can diminish our confidence and hurt the ego. When making mistakes, it can feel like others are making judgments. This feeling makes us lose confidence in making mistakes ourselves which can aid us in understanding a topic. Making mistakes should not be a negative result, but a positive one.
I also agree with another classmate who indicated that many of us focus on the "bad outcomes" instead of making the mistake. This is true considering that mistakes can not provide a second opportunity, but we can learn from it for another chance. It's impossible to not make mistakes since we are not perfect human beings. However, avoiding the mistake will cause us to not learn from it and continue to make the same mistake over and over again without understanding.
Indeed making mistakes is human but we are afraid to make mistakes, because doing mistakes in our private, social or professional lives have severe consequences. Unfortunately, for people to learn from their mistake, they have to be able to recognize that they’ve made one. We don't like to feel bad, so we find ways around the truth. We tell ourselves that we feel afraid because even though we learn, there are costs, and sometimes, costs are very high. For example many people live in jails because they committed mistakes and now many of them are paying for those bad mistakes and now many of them learn about that bad situation. Personally I made many mistakes in life but I think I learn more every time.
Listening to my classmates response on Thursday I would have to agree with the fact that people don’t like making mistakes because they don’t like having that feeling of failure in them. Although people learn from them they would just rather want to be correct at the first try then having to think others will judge them for not doing it right. In my opinion there is no right or wrong in doing something because regardless they will learn from somewhere.
I’m my opinion there is “right or wrong” because mistakes can be so bad that there is no coming back from it. I do believe that smaller mistakes are really good learning lessons.
Not everyone is okay with having failure in the back of their mind. In the world we live in now, it’s so hard to make a mistake and not be called out on it. Most people want to be seen as one who doesn’t make mistakes at all. Growing up as kids we were called out on our mistakes as a bad thing and now being older we know that our mistakes teach us something but still know that it’s known as something bad and something we shouldn’t do or something we don’t want. We’re afraid because we think in the moment, think too much about it and not in the future as “it wasn’t a big deal, it doesn’t define me now and it doesn’t mean anything to me anymore” because that mistake happened in the past.
One of my fellow classmates said in her response that the reason we are afraid to make mistakes even though we learn from them was because we are afraid of being judged by others. We are afraid of what others might think or say. She also said that mistakes make us who we are. I agree with her response because if we don’t make mistakes how could we learn to better ourselves. The first speaker to go up and share her response gave a perfect example of why we are afraid to make mistakes. She said in class when we raise our hand to answer a question and get the answer wrong we feel discouraged. I fully agree, most students including myself do feel discouraged in this situation. We fear making mistakes because even making one mistake scares us from making another one. If we don’t make mistakes how are we going to know what we are doing wrong or how to improve? Being afraid to make mistakes is only going to hold you back from great opportunities and a better life.
While hearing all the presentation they all had similar ideas and described how people hate the humility being wrong brings. At one point they all said they felt embarrassed from their mistakes and what other people said about them. One of them gave the example of when she speaks English by trying her best but sometimes making mistakes but learning from those mistakes. Another gave the example of making a mistake and hearing little laughters in the crowd and feeling discouraged and scared to make another mistake.
In my own opinion I agree with what they had to say. We all make mistakes but it can be embarrassing when people see you make those mistakes. It can discourage someone just hearing something giggle, marking you feel dumb.
I think we are awalys afraid to make a mistke becaues we might not know if you can over come the failer we hit with the mistake we have maked when you make a mistake your are consequences and with that we think if i cant over come this my life is over we rather be flaless hen have mistakes for people to piont out.
I agree with my classmates we are scared to make mistakes. Specially if we make them in front of a lot of people we feel embarrassed and wont speak up in front of people because we will feel we are wrong all the time.
They say that people are always afraid of making mistakes because they are afraid of the consequences and in the fear of being judged.
I said that Most of the time, mistakes will be criticized, so afraid is normal. Afraid of making mistakes makes us more carefully. since making mistakes created a sense of failure and frustration that making embarrassed and panic in the face of mistakes.
I agree with all of the presenter that we are all scared to make mistakes.Some people have different ways on how they act when they make a mistake some people get really mad and other people don't care if they make mistakes.Many people are scared to make mistakes in front of people because hey might think there stupid or might feel embarrassed.Even though you make mistakes people always want to be correct but it's not always like that making mistakes is nothing bad something you learn from and get better at it.For me I feel that when I make a mistake that people are gonna laugh at me and think that I don't know what I'm talking about.But making mistakes is never something bad.
We as humans make mistakes all the time. But the smart ones learn from their mistakes to not make the same mistake twice. An individual can even be discouraged when they making a mistake because the can feel stupid or insecure on answering another question.
For example a student that presented in front of the class made a great example about if a student answered wrong and people laughed , that person will feel embarrassed.
I really like to hear what people have to say about making mistakes. The other day in class, Martha presented her thoughts on making mistakes. For her, she said making mistakes is part of her learning process. And as an English learner, she feels nervous at times. Anothet classmate said that making a mistake caused her to feel insecure. She grew up being afraid of being judged by her mistakes which is pretty interesting to me.
I know that people are afraid to make mistakes because I am one of those people. I am always afraid to make a mistake because if the mistake happens, I feel like I did not do my best at whatever it is I am doing. Such as making my soccer team lose a game. I have that sense of guilt in knowing I could have done better. I also believe that people are afraid to make mistakes because they are afraid of being made fun of or judged. This to me is probably the most common reason why people are afraid of making a mistake. I have learned though, that committing mistakes is part of what makes you become the best version of yourself. They are the reason why so many successful people have become great and I have learned to accept that. To me, mistakes are the building blocks to success
What can i say that hasn't already been said? I guess we're just cowards. When opportunity is in our grasp only the brave and foolish reach for it. But what causes this cowardice? Is our mentality shaped by our experience or are some of us predestined to fear what we dont understand? Is there any way to break the cycle? Imagine if your parents never got together because one of them was too afraid to talk to the other. You wouldn't have the opportunity to enjoy life's insufferable moments.
We are not afraid of making mistakes. In fact, we don't even realize if we are making mistakes. Thinking about the consequences of our decisions may prevent us from making mistakes. Sometimes we wonder if the decisions we chose are right or wrong. Is the path we chose the right one? Are we wasting our precious time on unnecessary things that could drag us down while other people move forward to a better place? Over time, we start realizing if we are doing the right things by looking back. Unfortunately, mistakes are irreversible. Mistakes will make us feel regret and trapped us in an endless cycle of depression. Set back, regret, wasted time, ruined life, and broken dreams are consequences of our our mistakes. The conclusion is we are not afraid of making mistakes, we are afraid of the consequences of our mistakes.
We're afraid to make mistakes because we are afraid of the negative effect mistakes have on us. Instead of seeing it as a lesson learned it hurts us and we see it in that negative view.
We humans are so afraid to do mistakes because the thought that we’re gonna look dumb or be laugh at. Be were learn from our mistakes that’s what makes us humans even there wasn’t mistakes we would never learn how things are supposed to be done we live in what we think is a utopian world
So on Thursday three of my classmates presented their own opinions about making mistakes and why are we so afraid from them. Honestly all three of them gave good opinions because at some points we or at least I start thinking about why do we make mistakes. I say making mistakes are just part of life.We make them and we learn from them.They are also fears that make us stronger.
I really liked the answer one of my classmates said about this. he said " The consequences that anything can happen scares us. Mistakes are among us everyday, we have to embrace it and learn from them." i thought that was a great answer because at the moment that speech even motivated me for a bit. To think that we make mistakes through out the day constantly but we are still afraid to make them? It's a silly thing to be afraid of something that happens every day with all people. So instead of being so afraid of making a mistake we should embracing them instead because everyone makes mistakes, It should be something we all should really think about. I believe the reason we are so afraid of making mistakes is because we care what others think about us, but we tend to forget and we have to remember that every mistake that we do we can use it as a learning opportunity instead of being afraid of being judge that you did something wrong. so embrace the mistakes you have and just look at the good side of it and remember that you can learn something from whatever mistake you did.
It's part of our human nature to not want to step out of our comfort zones, especially if we know we're set up to fail. Our pride is a huge part of our ego and it discourages us to put ourselves in new situations we know might not be in our favor, however making mistakes gives us the opportunity to see where we went wrong and grow from that. Every mistake is a lesson learned.
I agree with my classmates, we all make mistakes but that’s okay. Making mistakes allows us to be better than we were before and it gives us the chance to learn from it so we won’t make that mistake again. Nobody is perfect so all of us are going to make mistakes. The question is how bad is that mistake going to affect us in the future. We cannot be afraid of taking risk because without risk we will live in fear our whole life.
