These are examples of automatic behaviors, where you act without purpose, or deliberate thinking.

Practice the three-step plan with small group scenarios.
Divide the students into small groups of 3-5 students and distribute a single Scenario Card to each group. In each group, appoint a discussion leader to read the scenario and the questions in the Sense-Plan-Act and Debrief sections.
For example, groups might want to script the entire scenario and perform it as a skit, dramatizing what happens to someone who doesn't use the three-step strategy.However, Kayak CEO Steve Hafner says new technologies are now starting to change how travelers plan and book their trips."It will be less point-and-click websites," Hafner told CNBC's "On the Money" in an interview.After modeling the three-step strategy, tell students to imagine that soccerfan5681 is NOT who he said he was—not a 13-year-old named Pat—and may have been someone with intentions to hurt Chris. Ask: How many of you have written the wrong year on a paper in January?How many have bumped into a mannequin at a store and said “Excuse me” before realizing it wasn’t a real person?So if you don't buy a ticket or hotel room from Kayak, how do they make money?
