Therefore, the concept of mirroring can definitely mislead us, making us feel as though we are experiencing the same action and/or emotion as another, even if they are feeling the total opposite way. Fallacies play a part in everyday life when we project the world one way and think that everyone is projecting the world in that similar view, however, this is not always
Although one comportment or disorder might be regarded as norm in one culture, it could be regarded as abnormal in another culture, and thus making therapy less equal in altered populations. Counselors must take into justification every culture, otherwise they are unwitting and are under culture coercion. Unfortunately, individuals come with bias and pre-conceived concepts. These biases and pre-conceived concepts generally impinge on treatment and therapy, because when working with culturally diverse populaces heedless of their beliefs and values, the outcomes of therapy are ineffective. Those who are attentive in the study of multiculturalism have even defined counselors negatively in the sense of treatment by calling them impervious to the beliefs and values of their culturally distinctive clients.
One typically tends to prioritize facts and uses reasoning, especially when they have past experience instead of exploring new ideas that are not proven. One prefers structure and order in their life and the things they do rather than having no guidance system in place at all. I do agree with the results from the Keirsey Temperament Sorter that concluded that I am an ISTJ. I am usually more introverted but
Humanity prejudges others for many various reasons whether it is based on race, gender, culture, sexuality, etc. We sometimes forejudge others without even knowing it just because we grew up thinking that its’ “okay” or “normal”. It’s not okay but society has that impact on us all and we feel as though we can do it without facing consequences. Based on what I’ve read in "C.P. Ellis" by Studs Terkel and "Veiled Intentions" by Maysan Haydar, both authors believe that prejudice is something a person is taught, but they both experienced prejudice differently; Ellis was the one feeling prejudice while Haydar was the one being prejudiced.
The reason why is that Anscombe is being too judgemental about thought experiments and suggest they are corrupt and irrelevant to argue. However, if we take the considerations of Walsh’s reply, we see that thought experiments cannot have the power to take over our minds, but rather they supply us with a different take on things. I agree with Walsh in saying that the use of thought experiments can turn our conventional perspectives around and look at situations with new perspectives. What I gather from Walsh is that thought experiments can sometimes provide relief to a situation instead of always viewing issues as
Obviously this can’t be done perfectly because you haven’t experienced the culture, but there are several ways to do this. For instance, researching the culture online is extremely helpful, but it is also good to have someone who has experienced the same culture shock that you will be experiencing to debrief you. If we prepare ourselves for what we are about to experience, we will be less likely to assume that we are the norm, and it will help us realize that there is a vast variety of norms to be experienced. If I assume that certain behaviors are normal for you, even though they are not part of my normal behavior, it will be easier for me to change my expectations to the reality I am currently experiencing. Instead of saying, “That is not like me, it must be inferior or wrong,” I can say, “That is not like me and I do not understand it…yet.
I know that I myself am guilty of being critical at times, because of my influence of post-modernity (truth that is relative to the community in which one participates) which is skeptical and calls everything into question. However, becoming a student did not mean that I blindly accepted everything that was shared. For me being a student meant that I listened to the information that was shared and tried
A discourse is comparable to what sociologists would call an ‘ideology’. It is composed of statements and/or beliefs that shape knowledge in the interest of one particular group. But, according to Foucault (in: Hall, 2006) a discourse is more appro-priate because an ‘ideology’ claims ‘truth’, which in turn can be falsified. But the social, po-litical and moral world seldom allows the formulation of ‘entirely’ true or
They argue that it has many major flaws, but they acknowledge that parts of theory have some truth to it. Throughout this essay, cultural relativism will be questioned, but also supported in some ways. The idea of cultural relativism reminds me of a sociological term--ethnocentrism--that essentially means the opposite. Ethnocentrism is essentially a bias about your own culture against other cultures. One can only see their culture (usually as dominant to the others), rather than attempting to see the perspective of whatever culture is in question.
To put it simply people do not hold their own views to the same scrutiny they do others and will disagree with an opinion just because they believe it is not their own. This study does not tell us how people's attitudes influence behaviours but it does make astoundingly clear how fluid people's opinions are. And if they are so fluid then how reliably can they be used as an indicator of one's
