FALLACIES 2
Decision-making is highly contributed by personal reasoning. At times, one may be
faced with a situation that requires them to make effective decisions that would end a dilemma.
The results associated with the decision will determine whether the decision was effective or
not. I have ever found myself guilty of arriving at various conclusions in different instances
contributed by an error in thinking.
I was elected as a student leader during my secondary school period. Student leaders
are supposed to represent their colleges to the administration mainly when deciding concerning
students' welfare is being discussed. When a student is faced with any indiscipline case that
may lead to suspension, student leaders are given a chance to participate in the disciplinary
discussion procedure. This helps in neutralizing the case, giving a punishment that would be
more supportive to a student.
During my era of leadership, one of the students was faced with an indiscipline case of
sneaking out of the school compound. Evaluating the case on my capacity, I viewed it as just a
normal case that would not require more concentration, mostly from the student leadership
body. The student informed us, but I ignored the matter, making me not give the required
effective concentration. I was lost in a false dilemma, and I could not consider all relevant
possibilities. I presumed that all would be in favor of the student. I even gave the student
courage to face the panel, assuring him that nothing bad would happen to him. My main aim
was not to participate in the discussion of the matter. I finally managed to convince the student,
making him proceed to the panel alone.
Afterward, the student was expelled for sneaking out of the school compound. I later
found myself guilty for ignoring the case. In this case, I felt that my participation would have
changed the committee's decision concerning the punishment. The fallacy of presumption had
highly affected my decision-making concerning my reaction to the case.
