Use your own words. Self-Regulation The textbook mentions the skill of self-regulation. How do you define this term?

Give an example from your personal or work life where you would use each of them, explaining why each is appropriate to the situation in which you use it. Heuristics Define “heuristic” in your own words. Give an example of a heuristic might be used in your personal or professional life and briefly show how it could have a positive or negative effect. Do not use examples found in the text. Dominance Structuring Explain the term “dominance structuring” in your own words. Is dominance structuring a positive or negative attribute of critical thinking? Explain. Use examples if that is helpful to your explanation.
