The action reaction phenomenon in physics is also particularly true for decisions on reasonable action. It is an expectation by people that each and every activity they partake in is beneficial to them. The fact that a lot of people are willingly participating in this class exercise, therefore, directly correlates to the fact that they must be obtaining mutual benefit from this action. This may be in terms of material benefit, benefit in knowledge or even in terms of emotional benefit. This factor, combined with the fact that we are selfless in nature, provides an excellent ground that is strong enough to inspire benefit expectations from participation in the class exercise (Skinner 71).

Any person that is willing to see the best of a situation will keep an open mind, and survey all the prospects so that they are sure to find positive benefits of their choices. Attending this class with the notion that I will benefit one way or the other gives me an edge over others on benefiting. My mind would be set on finding maximum possible benefits from the exercise, and as a result, would be keen to locate them.

Again, it would ensure that I am not disappointed by over expecting or expecting benefits from the exercise.
