Decision-Making Model

Step 1: Situation- A not so popular student has invited you to a sleep over at a birthday party on friday night. You have accepted the invitation and are planning to attend. On Wednesday, you are invited to a boy-girl party for the same Friday night by one of the most popular students at your school, someone you have hoped to become friends with. After talking with your friends, you realize most of them will attend the boy-girl party. Your parents have told you it is your decision, but that you should attend the party you responded to first. You really want to be a part of the popular crowd. what do you do?

Step 2: Options- To go to the party you responded to first or to go to the popular girl-boy party.

Step 3: Possible Outcomes- if you don't go to the boy-girl party then you might not be apart of the popular crowd.

Step 4: Values- She might not be in the popular crowd if she doesn't go to the boy-girl party. but if she does go to the boy-girl party then she might hurt the persons feels that invited first since you already accepted the invitation.

Step 5: Make a decision- I would go to the party i said i would go to first so i wouldn't hurt that persons feelings.

Step 6: Evaluate- if she says doesn't go to the party she responded to first then she might loose a friend and hurt that persons feelings.
