Oghkhay kids. Let's get down to business. A first year course, taught by former TA Clayton, and TAd by Daniel, little could have been expected. The students staged subtle rebellions, such as everyone standing whenever the teacher said "up", turning off the power, and saluting the teacher on the way into class. Mr. Bojangles is a vampire goatfish, and apparently also the class mascot. Tess Shaler was the most famous member of the class, and got sent home early.

Guide to JudgeMental

Author: Ben Hogan

If you get called on and wern’t paying attention:

  1. Get him to say the question again. The best way to do this is to ask something like “can you rephrase that?”
  2. After attempting number one and he is actually able to rephrase the question, try to answer with a general concept. The most general concepts (in order of decreasing broadness) are:
    1. Naive realism
    2. Biased Assimilation
    3. Schemas
    4. Heuristics

Answer the question in the following format, adjusted for one of the concepts: “I think that it can be best associated with the concept of Naive Realism”

  1. Refer to Anthony or let him interupt you
