Think about a time when you were called in by a teacher or a boss for an appraisal of your performance (athletic performance, singing or dancing event, your work in a store or restaurant, etc.). Reflect on how the teacher or boss handled the situation— how you felt about what she or he said, how you felt about yourself during the conference, how you feel about yourself now as you recall the incident, and so forth. Write a few paragraphs about why you think you had the feelings about yourself then as you experienced the conference as compared with how you feel about yourself now as you remember it, and why you think those feelings differ, if they do.
