* Analyze the Conservative and Liberal decision-making scale by drawing their own model.
* Define the following vocabulary: Demand, Control, Schema and explain how they work together.
* Evaluate the four specialized vocabulary: Paralinguistic, Intrapersonal, Interpersonal, and Environmental demands/controls and how schema aids them.
