    There are many factors that can influence a person’s interpretation of a situation. Cultural background, religion, prior experiences, or something as simple as a person’s mood can affect the outlook they have toward situations. Two individuals can witness the same event and have opposite reactions or interpretations of the incident. One instance of this can be illustrated by the observations of interaction between a group of friends and a man who was seemingly down on his luck.…

    Obviously, it is difficult to keep track of a representatives every move in the deep dark chamber of congress[Doc G]. In some congress people’s opinion, this anonymity leads them to believe that they don’t have any responsibility to their constituents. This is a classic example a a psychological phenomenon called groupthink, in which anonymity provides a cover for risky and generally worse decision.
