Assess Judgment

Evaluation of judgment is performed by asking the patient to interpret a simple problem. Ask the patient the following:

What would you do if you noticed an addressed envelope with an uncanceled stamp on it on the street near a mailbox?''

' 'What would you do if you were in a crowded movie theater and a fire started?''

A correct response to the first question would be to pick up the letter and mail it. An example of an incorrect response might be, ''I'd throw it in the trash.'' Judgment requires higher cerebral function.
