How do different people respond to change?

"Sometimes people respond negatively and sometimes people respond positively. Some people are in advantageous positions and don’t want it to lose their positions, so they respond negatively. Some people are open to change because they need something new in their lives."

"Some people respond positively to change or know that things are constantly changing in the world and it is just a normal part of life. Other people don’t know how to deal with change, think negatively about it, or are fearful of change. These people try to avoid a shift in routine, are afraid of the unknown, and are scared to learn new ideas or do things differently."

"Different people respond to change in many different ways. Some people are afraid of new ideas, or of something that changes their routine. However, some people think the opposite way."

"Some people adapt to the changes, but others do not, and may respond in a hurtful or violent way."

"They can respond in many different ways. Fear and uncertainty is a very common one but there are many people that can adapt to change very quickly."

"Many try to adapt to the change and some people just want to try and make everything go back to the way it was."

"Some people are open to it, and they are willing to adapt themselves to the changing situation. Some people eventually accept change, but take a while to get there; they may deny that it is happening for a while, and then something happens that forces them to change their mind. Lastly, there are people who don’t accept change. They deny the change is happening at all, and the people are saying so are lying. Most of the time, people do this because they are scared of change and don’t want to abandon their comfortable way of life. "

"Different people respond to change in different ways. Many people will move or act drastically if change comes to a place, while others will adapt with the change and stay calm throughout the changing process. Some respond to change with positivity and hope while others respond with negativity and hate."

"Some people are thankful for change and some people don’t want to let go of what they have so change for them isn’t good."

How will I use what I learned in this unit when confronted with change?

"This opens my mind to how I’ll react to a change. I’ve learned that it’s mostly best to try and adapt to change because that’s how you get through obstacles in your life."

"I can try to be as open as possible to change. I can try to put myself in other people’s shoes to be able to understand the change better. I can accept the fact that things are always changing, and that can be a challenge for me, but it is happening for a reason. "

"Change can always bring good and bad things. You have to analyze it and decide if it is what you want."

"I will use what I learned in this unit by opening my mind up to new things, experiences, and discoveries."

"I can use what I have learned to view/consider both sides of an argument."

"Change can always bring good and bad things. You have to analyze it and decide if it is what you want."

"If I disagree I should listen to the other side of the “argument” and see it from their point of view, hoping they will do the same."

"When I am confronted with change I will now know that with most changes more positivity happens in the future, and while it may be hard at the time it will most likely get better."

"I will approach every situation with an open mind. I will make the best out of the change."

"I will look back at the past and see how other people have done through these changes. Looking back at what others did to confront change is important because those people came with experience and have another perspective of life. "

"I will be optimistic about change. I learned it can go either way (good or bad) and I will adapt."

"I will think of all sides in the change. I will think about why people may or may not like the change, or why they might fear it. I will think of who benefits from it, and who is harmed. "

"In this unit I learned that change will happen no matter what and that I should think positively of these changes and with an open mind so that I can see from other people's points of view, try to understand why a change is being made, and learn about how change could be beneficial. Many times change is made to benefit people and make things easier like industrialization, so if I think positively about the change I can understand why it's an important change to make."
