  12. This is very old, but hopefully I'll be a help to anyone looking at this now.
    Number 2 is asking for a statement that is verifiable. Can you verify 100% that potato chips cause a person's skin to break out? You'd have to find that, factually, every person who has ever eaten potato chips has broken out because of that direct link.

    The third option is also making a generalization. If something generalizes people AT ALL, it is not a fact. If it makes mass generalizations about food or people or most other products, it is not a fact. There is no way to verify those types of things. Keep that in mind.

    The fourth option is a complete opinion. There's no way that's a fact. Using an adjective like "delicious" is in no way verifiable.

    That leaves the second option. Can you verify triple cheeseburgers have a high caloric count? Yes. Google it. Look at a menu and see the high number. It's a verifiable fact. You will never find a triple cheeseburger that is 50 calories, it is impossible.

    Hopefully this helps people realize what a verifiable fact is, because in the comments no one seems to know.

    And on the topic of generalization, question 3.
    hasty generalization is defined as a "fallacy in which a conclusion is not logically justified by sufficient or unbiased evidence. Also called insufficient sample, converse accident, faulty generalization, biased generalization, jumping to a conclusion, secundum quid, and neglect of qualifications."
    The first option isn't really a generalization, for it doesn't group a large group of people or things into a set category, it's just an opinion.
    The second option groups an entire mass of people (police officers) into a stereotype that ALL cops eat doughnuts. It doesn't phrase it as an opinion, it phrases it as a FACT. But is it a fact that all cops love doughnuts?
    The third option is verifiable enough. Does her brother like broccoli? Ask him, in this case he doesn't. Does she? Yes she does. So come to your own conclusion, this isn't generalizating anyone.
    The fourth option is once again easy enough to verify. It's just a declarative statement. She goes jogging every morning. Not generalizating because it's believed she does go jogging. No logic is needed.

    Come to your own conclusion, the answer is simple. I won't go through and explain every question, but take time to think about definitions in these questions. KEYWORDS. verifiable fact. hasty generalization. think about these things.

  13. Emotional intelligence is increasingly becoming a mainstream importance in relationships. Defined by helpguide as the “ability to understand, use, and manage your own emotions in positive ways to relieve stress, communicate effectively, empathize with others, overcome challenges and defuse conflict,” emotional intelligence centers in reading emotions in guiding your relationships with others.

    This is particularly important in your business: with team members, employees, clients, and in networking. Emotional intelligence not only has the capacity to better relationships, but expand your own influence over those you have relationships with (which is especially important in client or employee relationships). Here are three ways to engage emotional intelligence to better your relationships and expand your influence.
