discussion 2

Provide an example of the self-fulfilling prophecy that you have seen operating in the real world, perhaps even an example of a self-fulfilling prophecy that you have created yourself. For example, a student in a previous class said that she worked as a server in a restaurant. When she served a middle-aged customer she tended to work harder because she expected a bigger tip than when she served a young adult customer. As a result, she got bigger tips from her middle-aged customers. What are the implications for the self-fulfilling prophecy for the people involved?
