SELF-REGULATED DECISION MAKING 35 would be interesting to consider the responses of adolescents and adults to questions such as the following: (a) Have you ever been in a car accident? ; (c) Did the accident cause you to change the way you drive? But again, the literature on practical intelligence suggests that successful individuals discern good ways to proceed on their own.
