Table 4: Socks and Drawers Comparison Table
|Outline||John Quincy||James Jones|
|Claim||It is important to keep socks separate from other clothing in a separate drawer.||Socks need to be near the underwear in the same drawer so they are easy to retrieve since both go on underneath the body.|
|Reason #1||Socks are easily contained when they are separate from other clothing.||Since I am always in a hurry in the morning to go to work, I need to be able to find the socks.|
|Reason #2||When my socks are in one place I don’t have to search for a match.||When my socks are in the same drawer as the underwear, I don’t have to search for a match.|
|Reason #3||I like organization. I like to categorize. I like everything in its place.||I like everything in one place.|
