Remember those kids who started random clubs like underwater basket-weaving just so they could write, Club President on their resumes? Even if the club never met? Right. This section is your chance to show that you are different, because it is more than just your responsibilities. It is also about your accomplishments. What is the difference?. Maybe the underwater basket-weaving club president was responsible for hosting meetings, planning events and organizing a fundraiser. But if she did not actually accomplish any of those things, she can not add them to her resume. So consider both your responsibilities and accomplishments, whether in a club, on a team, at a job, through a service project, etc. and then think of those accomplishments in terms of numbers. Say you are the editor of your schools newspaper. Think back to how many papers you have published. How many articles? How many meetings have you led? How many students in each meeting? Say you babysit neighborhood kids. How many kids? How old are they? How often do you babysit? For how long each time? Maybe you work at a coffee shop. How many shifts per week? How many hours per shift? How many people do you serve on average each shift? Maybe you are the team captain for your lacrosse team. How many warm-ups do you lead each week? For how many teammates? Do you lead team study sessions to help keep everyones grades up? How often?. Once you have got the numbers, think of active verbs that describe exactly what you did. Here is your chance to show that you have led, managed, organized, created, problem-solved, budgeted, maintained, coached, produced, written, presented, scheduled, built, developed, traveled, bought, bid, sold, delivered, etc.
We suspect that when disagreements are about heated topics such as politics, people will be even less likely to take note of the strength of contradictory opinions. Our findings may shed light on some puzzling recent trends in society. For instance, over the last decade, climate scientists have expressed greater confidence that climate change is man-made. Yet, a survey by the Pew research centre shows that the percentage of Republicans who believe this notion to be true has dropped over the same period of time. While there are complex, multi-layered reasons for this specific trend, it may also be related to a bias in how the strength of other peoples opinions are encoded in our brain. The findings can also be extrapolated to political current events. Take the recent impeachment hearings against US president Donald Trump. Our study suggests that whether a witness appears calm, confident and in command of the facts (as government official Bill Taylor was described when testifying during the hearings) or unsteady and uncertain (as the FBI chief Robert Muller was described when testifying about his special counsel investigation back in July) will matter little to those who already oppose impeachment when testimonies are unsupportive of the president. But they will affect the conviction of those who are in favor of impeachment. So how can we increase our chances of being heard by members of an opposing group? Our study lends new support to a tried and tested recipe (as Queen Elizabeth II recently put it while addressing a country divided over Brexit) — finding the common ground. The strength of a carefully reasoned opinion is less likely to be registered when launching into a disagreement with a sturdy pile of evidence describing why we are right and the other side is wrong. But if we start from common ground — that is the parts of the problem we agree on — we will avoid being categorized as a disputer from the very beginning, making it more likely that the strength of our arguments will matter.
