Step 3 - Reactions!
  
    After collecting all figurative data we must examine our responses within and in relation with others for that specific experience to find out how accurate were or are our reactions to the similar event; hence, we can use them to evaluate the course of actions that we might take.

  How did you react/respond?
    We must state as much detail as we can recollect about our own physical and emotional behaviour during and immediately after that incident like a reporter who is observing an event and without any bias.

  How did you handle that situation?
    In addition we should state any form of calculated action that we took, during that specific episode, which involved cognitive thinking, such as instant evaluation of situation, pros and cons of different reactions, and estimating the outcomes as a result of our chosen behaviours.

  Did you discuss it with your family?
    We must write down if we discussed that event with family members, to whom, why, how much detail we revealed to them, whether we told them the whole truth, or the reasons we didnít speak about that event with our family. We must state what responses we received from them, and how those responses shaped our subsequent communications with them.

  Did you talk about it with your friends?
    We must write down if we discussed that event with our friends at the time of the incident, to whom, why, how much detail we revealed to them, whether we told them the whole truth, or the reasons we didnít speak about that event with our friends. We must state what responses we received from them, and how those responses shaped our communications with them at a later time.

  Did you talk about it with strangers?
    We must write down if we discussed that event with our colleagues, acquaintances and strangers, to whom, why, how much detail we revealed to them, whether we told them the whole truth, or the reasons if we didnít speak about that event with our colleagues, acquaintances and strangers. We must state what responses we received from them, and how those responses shaped our communications with them later on.

  How did you see others?
    We also must state our views toward those who were either present or involved during and immediately after that incident.
