To somewhat contradiction and agreement, Sacks states "some areas of the visual cortex may be reallocated and used to process sound and touch"(Sacks,330). In contrast to Johnson, it is clear that the pacemaker, our brain, allows the visual cortex to reallocate to heighten other senses, which allows the blind people to adjust their new way of life. However, to some extent, Sacks statement bolsters Johnson's case that self-organizing system is a very complex system, just like the complex structure of our brain, which acts as a pacemaker for us. The complexity of a structure is indeed dependent on how efficiently each component is able to carry out its functions, and structures which are deemed complex have different components which it is dependent upon to perform its functions. The idea of pacemaker itself cannot be disregarded in the making of
The information we gain from experiencing the world around us originates from our senses. Our senses pick up and analyze the information which in turn allows us to better understand or doubt the information received. In conclusion, Descartes believes that sense perception is the root of thinking, doubting and understanding. Descartes, establishes his conclusion
Through his diagram, it is easy to understand that without one, there wouldn’t if not couldn’t be another. There are layers of understanding and one must start with one aspect before proceeding into the next, more challenging heart of the culture. It begins with the outside circle, peoples’ behavior and demeanor. Once your able to understand why people act a certain way then you can see and understand more of their values. Not only does this provide an even greater understanding of their behavior, it also helps to assist in the simple understanding of people.
You’re not just learning the words of things or actions, you’re becoming much more aware of other values, perspective and beliefs. According to Mickey Gast, Studies have shown “Being exposed to different ways of speaking about and understand the world will make you more open to the idea that your view of the world is just that: your view of the world. Rather than being fixed and absolute, you will become more aware of variety perspectives” (Gast). Gast point is that, the more things you are exposed to, the greater chance you have at being more open-minded rather than those who don’t expose themselves to the world. You also gain the chance to communicate with other people from around the world.
You can find people who tend to like the same types of things but not every single little detail of everything that one likes, the other would like too. There are similarities which connects people, but differences is what makes people feel connected to themselves. The choices in life we have are not as limited as people think. People feel pressured to like the same things as others so that they will be well likes but little do they know, if they like something different and express it freely and passionately they will most likely be worshiped for showing a more unique and inquisitive side of
The stage of thinking critically is like the ultimate stage to reach in this stage you are able to see that some viewpoints are better than other viewpoints. In this stage people are more open-minded. Unlike the other stages you are looking at all of the views on a topic, the negative and the positive. Chafee states, “We have a responsibility to explore every perspective, evaluate the supporting reasons for each, and develop our own informed conclusions that we are prepared to modify or change based on new information or better
This essay will discuss the statement by William James, “-whilst part of what we perceive comes through our senses but another part (and it may be the larger part) always comes out of our head.” (James, 1890). This excerpt relates to the topic of perception, which can be defined as the acquisition and processing of sensory information to see, hear, taste, or feel objects, whilst guiding an organism’s actions with respect to those objects (Sekuler & Blake, 2002). Every theory of perception begins with the question of what features of the surrounding environment can be apprehended through direct pickup (Runeson et al. 2000). Is it only vague elemental cues that are available, and development and expansion through cognitive processes is required
As we go about our daily lives, we are acquiring knowledge from our surroundings through the lens of our eyes. Henceforth, many describes knowledge as a mirror, where our knowledge is defined by our perception : this aspect of knowledge is extremely beneficial in terms of confirming the validity of knowledge itself . Nonetheless, not all the time what we see are true, there are exceptional situations when everything is not always what it seems. Compared to a mirror, our knowledge is also limited because we only see what perspective allows us to, we seldom think beyond what our eyes reveal to us. Situations that can elicit our understanding of the world are often derived from our worldview; our worldview is determined from the way we perceive the world.
StrengthsFinder: Choose five different strengths. Using the information in your motivation chapter, discuss how to differentially motivate these individuals. From StrengthsFinder 2.0, I chose these five strengths, “Achiever, Strategic, Individualization, Responsibility, and Intellection” (Rath, 2007) which are defined below. An Achiever feels the need to “establish a relationship with a person, and detests slackers” so I would approach this person by making sure that they always had a list of stuff that they could do (Rath, pg. 40).
Evolve into Having Self-Awareness Being self-aware simply means that you have a keen understanding of your own personality. That includes your positive and negative traits, your thoughts and beliefs, your feelings, and your inspiration. It would be easier for you to understand others when you are self-aware. You will also be able to tell how they see you in return. Most people believe that they have a good sense of self-awareness, but it would be best to check at a comparative scale to see where you fall on it in contrast with others.
