1. What mental models do you have about attending a college or university lesson? Are these mental models helpful? Could any of these mental models hold you back from achieving the full benefit of the lesson?

2. Discuss how stereotyping, attribution, and self-fulfilling prophecy effects influence the perceptual process. Share a related personal experience.

3. Describe how a manager or coach could use the process of self-fulfilling prophecy to enhance an individual’s performance. Share a related personal experience if possible.

4. You are the manager of a district that has just hired several recent university and college graduates. Most of these people are starting their first full-time job, although most or all have held part-time and summer positions in the past. They have general knowledge of their particular skill area (accounting, engineering, marketing, etc.) but know relatively little about specific business practices and developments. Explain how you would nurture the self-concepts in these new hires to strengthen their performance and maintain their psychological well-being.
