you have to write a 3 page argumentative research essay that logically convinces the audience of whether or not personal possessions can truly define an individual and whether or not certain possessions might indicate how “happy” or “content” one truly is as a result. Your  audience  is  other college students and those of  the psychology and business community. Assume the role of  professor of  your subject matter and use appropriate resources to support your point of view, mainly Belk’s “Possessions of the Extended Self” and Gertner’s “The Futile Pursuit of Happiness”.
