Q333. Consider each of the actions listed in the left column of this table. Thinking like Max Weber, in the other columns of each row, give a short explanation of how the action could be oriented in each of four ways (instrumentally rational, value rational, affectual, traditional). In some cases, you might conclude that it is simply too far fetched for an action to be subject to a particular orientation; these can be noted with an "X."

Action Instrumentally Rational
Value Rational
Affectual Traditional
Picking a major
Helping an elderly person
Clipping coupons
Setting the table
Observing holy days
Doing a class assignment
Going to college
Respecting one's elders
