In Malcolm Gladwell’s “The Power of Context” he explains the change in human behavior based on the environments that they are in. Together these two texts can explain how emotions affect human judgment and critical thought. The cause and effect relationship between people and their environment allows for emotion to come in the process
These systems are a set of behaviors activated by environmental stimuli. The attachment system is activated in order to reconnect with a person that provides them emotional safety. The exploratory system allows a person to explore their surrounding environment. Also, the fear/wariness system is used to withdraw from frightening and distressing situations. Another key feature of Attachment Theory are internal working models.
The Biopsychosocial model studies a person on their disorder and how it occurred through biological, psychological, and social factors that could potentially affect them. The biopsychosocial model plays an important role in human functioning in the grouping of illness and disease. The Amygdala influences motivation, emotional control, fear response, and interpretations of nonverbal emotional expressions. Thinking can be improved by activities that require creativity and the use of memory abilities. James-Lange theory of emotion leads to a physiological reaction of labeling an emotion.
Behavioural approach is a theory to simplify human behaviour through observations. This theory focuses on the environment as a controlling factor to human/animal and that we are the result of the environmental influences. It concentrates on stimuli that trigger’s human, animal behaviour and
Due to the interdependent relationship between person, environment and occupation, a change in one component will result in changes to the other domains. Person:
Thus, it can be concluded that an individual’s performance is strongly affected by his environment. The same person would react differently to same stimulus when faced with different environments. Thus, to influence behaviour, focus should be laid on
III - In Emily Greenfield’s, description of Ford and Lerner’s 1992 Developmental Systems Theory, she writes “While DST notes that social environments can fundamentally influence individuals’ behavior, at the same time, individuals-within existing environmental constraints and opportunities-can select and shape these very environments. In this way, DST conceptualizes individuals as both products and producers of their own development. (E. Greenfield p. 532) The person-environment relationship is symbiotic, they affect one another and cannot be viewed independent of each other. Using Levine’s Basic Problem Solving Process, if we define assessment, as leading “...to a definition of the problem, and it beginning to indicate resources for dealing
He argued that these factors can affect our behavior. Our behavior influence and is influenced by the environment. Another concept of social cognitive theory is self-efficacy. It determine how people feel or think about themselves when performing a task. Social cognitive theory has some weaknesses.
I am studying my house with some of the five themes of geography. These themes are location; physical and human characteristics; interaction of people and the environment; movement of people, goods, and ideas, and regions found in a geographic area. I will use location, physical and human characteristics, and interaction of people and the environment. Each theme is applied when studying a location. The first theme I will use is location.
