Attitude Our Group Tech Hater= Dan O’Malley The Psychologist= Sam Lee The Tech Guru= Raman MathurThe Research Specialist= Jessica Park
Overview of Attitude• Definition: A manner, disposition, feeling, etc., with regard to a person or thing; tendency or orientation, especially with the mind.• Rating of Control: 7-8, because we can try to control our attitude by thinking positive, but bad days are inevitable and natural. No one can maintain a healthy attitude all the time.• Selling Point: Attitude is more influential than other determinants because it has a heavy influence on your mood. If you have a negative attitude, even good things can be twisted to be upsetting. A negative attitude emphasizes the bad things and results in much more stress. A positive person who looks for the best in everything can look past the bad stuff and tends to be much more relaxed, happy, and social as a result.
