I was thinking no longer than a paragraph and I would need it by Monday if possible.
Th length is still the same. At least one paragraph. It has three parts. The one you just sent to me, this one and then one more that I sent to you as well. :)
Given the readings and assignments, identify and briefly discuss two concepts that you believe are best applicable to your professional discipline.
It is the same question as above only it was for Art not Psychology, my apologies again. :)
