The author claims that people attitude are determined by how one reacts to an
immediate situation also surrounding in which one is living. I agree with the
the claim because what matters is how is one recting to a pragmatic situation because
As said above it is not important that what are the inherent characterstics of a
being but what is important is how he applies his knowlwdge whem it comes the
need of it. Say for example there is a patient of accute cardiac arrest. And we
have two doctors one is more qualified and the other more experienced. But when
both arrive at the emergency the one who is new becomes nervous seeing a moribund
patient and the experienced one saves life by simply giving the appropriate
treatment which he has given before also. So we can see who had better attitude.
So it is not the inherent quality but our response to the pragmatic situation
which matters. Similarly when I gave my engineering entrance I observed that
many students did better than those who had better preparation. This is temperament
or attitude which is also put to test in the case of urgent situation. I feel
this is the real test of ones attitude. In a cricket match when sometimes a not so
known batsman hits a six on the last ball of match bowled by a known baller and
wins the match for his country. It shows his attitude. Not all the people are
equally successful. Those who handle the situations of life better rise higher.
Another factor which is important is our surrounding. Surrounding mainly features
the people who surround us, our work culture etc. It has been observed when
somebody given the company of better people he tends to improve and vice versa .
I except the case the one is not obdurate. I feel this is a tendency of a human
being that it tries to copy the people around who he thinks are better than him.
