<p>my prompt was "is it wise to be suspicious of motives of those who appear as authority?"</p>
<p>My thesis was "it is not wise to be suspicious"
My examples were:
Steve Jobs trusted his college professor while other students rejected him. And finally he was able to succeed because of his professor's advice
Chinese emperor, Qin shihuangdi, was able to unite China under one rule with a belief of legalism while other people were skeptical to the legalism which was a relatively new belief system.
And a movie in which a white doctor hires an african american doctor in 1940s. Although other doctors were suspicious of his motive and behavior, the african american doctor trusted him and enabled a heart surgery for the first time in history. If the african american doctor did not trust him, they would not have made impossible to possible.</p>
<p>I wrote full two pages but the examples seem not fitting to the topic.
Do you think my essay is off topic?
I would really appreciate your reply. I'm really concerned about it.
