Romeo and Juliet Survey Reflection:
From this survey, I have learned that people have disagreements. Though my dad and I had pretty much the same opinion, we still had some differences. I think that we had similar thoughts because our parents have taught us to possess these certain traits because they think that these are positive traits that will help us in our lives in society. I think that because our parents teach us to adapt these traits, they would want to find us a mate who would also possess these traits because they think that they will help us in life.
