MORE DECKS TO EXPLORE
Comparing Executive Function
Us versus someone we admire
What is executive function?
a set of mental skills that allow you to get stuff done
Break up big things into smaller tasks
See a progression of tasks
Offset immediate satisfaction for a later, and better, one
For these statements, give a number for you and your biography person.
1 = never, very hard
5 = always, easy, yes
I schedule lunch meets or rendez-vous greets in and out of school (rather than just letting mom or following what the group does).
I can handle large tasks/projects by breaking them down into smaller ones. (By yourself)
I treat little upsets as minor issues and don't freak out.
The Wandering Faun
When I fail at something it's almost never a surprise.
I almost always meet deadlines for assignments
I'm autonomous with transitions between classes, activities or tasks.
I'm okay with criticism and respond to it calmly.
I don't need to be prompted to use a calendar, to do list or agenda
Rajiv Patel (Rajiv's View)
I can put away distractions when working (phone, TV, music, etc).
People tell me conversations with me are always clear and understandable. (Not confusing).
I can stop myself before I act or say something I'll regret later.
In group work, I can keep a thought in my ram so as to keep on topic.
I can focus on one activity until finished.
When given something to do, I start right away.
If asked to get something from my room I haven't used in a bit, I'd find it in a few minutes.
I'm quite good at estimating how long a task, project, event will take.
I can take a step back and see myself rationally in any given situation.
So, you have a bunch of numbers.
One set for you, and another for the person you're reading about.
Given that success seems to favour the acquisition of EFs, what does your comparison say?
Why do we get stressed about EF issues?
What can we do about it?
