Attitudes are an Inevitable Component of our Lives
Attitudes are an inevitable component of our lives. They determine our disposition towards a particular person, event, or thing. Attitudes have three components: affect, which is our feelings towards that particular something or someone. They also involve cognition, which is our thoughts towards the event. Finally, attitudes involve our behavior towards the person. Numerous studies show that while we all have attitudes, they do not always correspond with our behavior.
In a bid to encourage recycling in the community, I decided to draw up an advertisement to that effect. However, before I go about setting up the advert, I find it prudent to measure the attitudes of the community members, to determine how they will receive the idea. With the numerous news articles and most people encouraging us to recycle, it is not therefore surprising that almost everyone in the community believes that recycling is a good thing to do.
