Look at the three scenes you have written. Choose the character in one and develop them further. Write two character sketches of the same character. With the first, make this their usual way of thinking. With the second, make this situational thinking. What changes between the two character sketches? How would this effect their relationships?
Over Generalization: you come to a general conclusion based upon a single incident or piece of evidence. If something bad happens once, you expect that it will happen over and over again.
Write a scene where a character demonstrates over generalization.
Polarized Thinking: things are black or white, good or bad. You have to be perfect or you’re a failure. There is no middle ground.
Write a scene where someone demonstrates polarized thinking.
Filtering: you take the negative details and magnify them while while filtering out all positive aspects of a situation.
Write a scene where a character demonstrates filtering.
