I need assistance with writing an intro for the theme of "conflict at a personal level", I am having trouble opening my essay, so assistance would be greatly appreciated. :)
Do you have the rest of your essay written already? Your introduction should be like a movie trailer; something to hint at what is to come. You don't want to spend too much time explaining what you are going to tell your readers in the introduction. It can be like a thesis statement if that works, or something less technical, depending on the content of your essay. Either way, it's just a teaser to get your audience interested in what you are going to tell them.
Do you have any more information on the paper other than that phrase? I find it a little ambiguous: is this a paper about conflict between people or conflict experienced within an individual?
That's a great question!
Conflict Essay; communication practices, descriptions, and the effects
I have to write an essay about the "four horsemen of the apocalypse" or communication practices criticizing, defensiveness, stonewalling, and contempt and the effects they have had on my life. I am uncomfortable with writing about my personal reflections. Is there a way to do this right with out rehashing personal experiences? My outline consist of the four communication practices, the descriptions, and the effects on my life.
If the assignment is to analyze the effects of these things on your life, there is really no way to get around the personal analysis part. The depth and breadth of your content, however, is up to you.
