Fallacies always stem from many societal issues, where one does not consider the reality on the ground or the factors leading to certain happenings. They may lead to one having misleading interpretations of a given instance, hence coming up with unworthy conclusions. Behavioral mechanisms and also cognitive notions are always responsible for the different stances of fallacies that emerge in the society.
The natural attractiveness of one’s beauty always contributes positively to their hiring in the different companies. That is why the more attractive people without the best qualifications and those who are less attractive but with the best qualifications will be given the same opportunities in a firm, and it applies to average job opportunities. This is a fallacy that is always prevalent in many workplaces, and I am a victim of the same. Basing on my good looks, people thought that the first information technology job I got based on my beauty. This is a notion that is always in the minds of many people, who consider that the most beautiful people are always favored in most organizations. But for exceptional job applications, this physical attractiveness plays less a role during the selection because it is only needed when independently grooming. It is also said that the recruitment process seeks for those who are well groomed even though they are physically unattractive. This natural attractiveness is said not end in the interview room but that such people are lucky that they earn more wages for their work as compared to those who are less attractive. It thus emanated as a fallacy in this regard, as well put in the article (Bassili, 2011).
Industries that market seasonally are so much aware that sex sells that much of which this idea is also known to the public in general. However, these groups do not fully support the effectiveness of physical attractiveness to the citizens around and their behaviors. But for hospitality, service and leisure firms or companies, this attractiveness is not only used during advertisements and those improving instruments but also to interactions between the customers and the service officers plus the firm managers. Talking of a persuasive advertisement, the beautiful people are more chanced because they easily a diversion and attention to the one watching and in other businesses they easily ooze money from customers at any time they ask for it. For example those working for charitable organizations, they easily receive more donations due to their beauty luck. So the physically attractive people easily attract others through diversion and as well get what they want without hustling.
Photographs may portray issues that are not clear or may not even exist. Despite the fact that they are major modes of communication, they may also be misleading in one way or another. This is one area that has always affected me, in line with the fallacies depicted in most of the photographs. Most of them bring about hasty generalizations, especially when one considers the view of a general populace. This was the case in the article by John, where he posted several pictures. Some of the pictures could elicit sorrow and pity from the viewers, especially if one considers the backgrounds, but that was not the real case on the ground. I have been made to believe many fallacies in photographs. A smile from a person on a photograph may not necessarily elicit a feeling of joy. Some people smile only to lead others astray, as I was a victim of a photograph sent to me by a friend, after we had a quarrel. After apologizing, I believed he had pardoned me. The photograph immensely contributed to my confusion, as I had no idea that the person still bore a grudge on me.
The photographs used can create a different picture in the minds of the viewers for example the use glasses, clothing type which is sometimes not considered. This face expressed like larger pupils, smile and emotions shows positivity and actually drives the viewers to liking to look the same and yet in they can never be like that no matter how they try thus a bias. To continue with that, the difference in the age of those to participate can be restricted accordingly for example the range of 18-36 was carrying a mean of 21.2 years. This difference is in accordance that most of the participants are university students and the rest might be married women or even high school vacates. The motivation in career and the physical characters of one’s life reduce as they grow up explaining that self motivation may be strongly affected by age no matter other factors. This wind up that at a different and a bigger number of age for the participants will be needed in order for firms to handle the different kinds of customers and self actualization
Menus in restaurants
Some restaurants always have menus that are misleading to most clients. Some of the wording and vocabulary embraced on the menu may depict wrong information hence making many of the people get confused on the cuisine offered. A good case is the Guy’s American Kitchen & Bar in Times Square, where the vocabulary embraced on the menu can make one wander on the type of meal being offered. I once visited the restaurant, and was taken aback with what was offered in the end. The burger is described as “Guy’s Pat LaFrieda, and I was even astonished when I ordered for the same and what was served to me. It was not anything new to me, but I ended up feasting on it, yet expected a new experience on the same. This was clear in the article on New York Times, where many clients elicited their thought on the panic inflicted on them whenever they got the menu offered to them
Love may not be true in most cases. Some parents always offer conditional love in most instances to their children, when they are expected to reciprocate on the same. Parental love is expected to be a true manifestation of love. As the article portrays, some parents always want their children to behave in a given way, whenever they show them love. Parents are supposed to exhibit unconditional love to their children, in a bid to ensure that the desired morals and norms are nurtured in their families. The fallacy of weak analogy always shows itself in such cases, and it is a major problem to most families.
False advertising is the utilization of false or misdirecting explanations in promoting. Advertising can possibly convince individuals into business transactions. Truth alludes to basically the same idea, that viewers have the right to realize what they are purchasing. The important information regarding the item should be on the mark. False advertising is illicit in all nations. Nonetheless, advertisers still discover approaches to convince customers in ways that are lawful, or illicit, but unenforceable.
The following is one of the case of the false advertisement that relates to children. They deceive children because they do not know anything about the product. Society urges advertising ethics constantly. This normally happens in line with advertisements that include children. The following is the illustration of the advertisement of shampoo. The issue is not something in the spot. There is no grown-up supervision demonstrated around the swimming pool (Snyder, 2003). The CARU (Children’s Advertising Review Unit) and BBB (Better Business Bureau) obliges that grown-ups should monitor children when such products could be hazardous. Therefore, L'oreal changed the business to model great parental conduct.
