Explain the KISS principle. Give an example of an actual situation where the KISS principle was ignored and the resulting consequences. Give an example of a real situation when the KISS principle was followed and the consequences.


Answer 1


The KISS principle.

Keep It Simple, Stupid.


The KISS principle states that most systems work best if they are kept simple (not simpler) rather than if they are made complicated. That is to say that, simplicity should be the most important thing (key goal) in design, and unnecessary complexity should be avoided.

For example to persuade someone, use simple and clear language rather than complex big grammar(erudition). Use words that people will easily understand. Keep sentences short and straight to the point. Use straightforward sentence construction. If speaking to a group, speak so the person least likely to understand that way you would use the simplest of languages, thus making it possible for everyone to understand you.

An example of where the KISS principle was ignored:

A politician who wants to reform both tax and local services, and use the message, 'You pay your tax, we alleviate your poverty'.

Consequences: People may not comply because they don't understand what alleviation of poverty means.

An Example of where the KISS principle was followed and its consequences:

A marketer that works to find a simple message for promoting toothpaste and might come up with 'For a cleaner, brighter, happier life'.

Consequences: He will have more sells and more customers because everyone understands what he is talking about.

Describe a discriminatory situation that you experienced or witnessed. Identify the individual aspects of this discrimination. Describe any institutionalized racism that you have observed or experienced.


This can only be answered correctly if you look at your own experiences, as this requires a very personal answer. However, I can give you an example that might help as inspiration.

I was once at a doctor's office and a woman was very stressed out because her daughter was sick. She was desperate to see a doctor and would not stop complaining, even though there were other people ahead of her. When the doctor finally came, he was Indian, and the woman began to ask for an American doctor who spoke English (even though the doctor spoke English perfectly).

This is an example of discrimination because the doctor is being treated in an unfair and unequal way because of his race. This takes precedence over his abilities and qualifications. This type of racial discrimination is one of the most common types of prejudices that we find in people. Although this is not a form of institutionalized racism, it can certainly have the effect of increasing such bad treatment in other contexts.

Emotions are often directed towards specific people or events in the workplace. They are intense, short-lived responses to perceived events, and unlike moods, they usually motivate behavioral responses.


The statement that is true of emotions in the workplace is: (C) Emotions are directed toward someone or something. Emotions can be defined as intense, discrete, and brief responses to a particular event that is important to the individual. Unlike moods, which are less intense and often not directed or attached to anything specific, emotions usually arise in direct response to a perceived event, are short-lived (lasting minutes to hours), and usually motivate behavioral responses.
