Neuroscience Sheds New Light on Creativity - Rewiring the Creative Mind Perception Since the rise of experimental psychology in the 19th Century, psychology's understanding of perception has progressed by combining a variety of techniques.[3] Psychophysics quantitatively describes the relationships between the physical qualities of the sensory input and perception.[5] Sensory neuroscience studies the brain mechanisms underlying perception. Perceptual systems can also be studied computationally, in terms of the information they process. Perceptual issues in philosophy include the extent to which sensory qualities such as sound, smell or color exist in objective reality rather than in the mind of the perceiver.[3] The perceptual systems of the brain enable individuals to see the world around them as stable, even though the sensory information is typically incomplete and rapidly varying. Process and terminology[edit] An example would be a person looking at a shoe. Psychologist Jerome Bruner has developed a model of perception. Perception and reality[edit] Features[edit]

First Person Plural - Magazine An evolving approach to the science of pleasure suggests that each of us contains multiple selves—all with different desires, and all fighting for control. If this is right, the pursuit of happiness becomes even trickier. Can one self "bind" another self if the two want different things? Imagine a long, terrible dental procedure. There is a good argument for saying “Yes. Also see: Interview: "Song of My Selves" Psychologist Paul Bloom reflects on happiness, desire, memory, and the chaotic community that lives inside every human mind. The psychologist and recent Nobel laureate Daniel Kahne­man conducted a series of studies on the memory of painful events, such as colonoscopies. Such contradictions arise all the time. The question “What makes people happy?” But what’s more exciting, I think, is the emergence of a different perspective on happiness itself. This hierarchical structure makes possible the research programs of psychology and neuroscience. Examples abound in our own lives.

The New Frontier in Democratic Theory and Practice: Organizational Forms that Simultaneously Optimize Autonomy & Community Returning to the Jungians, we find that at the forefront of Jungian psychological theory is the creation of a feminine ego based on the devalued functions of NF. Jungian analyst Laurie Schapira heralds the advent of a post-patriarchal "feminine" ego that is "grounded in the emotional [F], imaginal [N] matrix of the Self."72 -page 57- Hillman believes that the lack of development of the feeling function in contemporary society results in a situation in which "we have a rather impoverished and sentimental notion" of what an educated feeling function could be.73 Zipes, in referring to the "instrumentalization of fantasy" explains how imagination [N] is devalued in contemporary society.74 In addition to these assertions there is statistical data that demographically demonstrate that the NF combination is underrepresented in contemporary Western society. -page 58- From this diagram we can draw a number of conclusions.

To samo odnosi się do typu postaw. Często rozróżnienie jest bardzo trudne i trzeba włożyć wiele psychologicznej pracy, aby z tego kalejdoskopowego obrazu, w jakim psyche ukazuje się obserwatorowi, wyłuskać właściwy jej typ. Na przykład często ten sam artysta jest w życiu ekstrawertykiem, a w swoich dziełach introwertykiem, lub odwrotnie. Jung uważa, że twórczość ekstrawersyjna powstaje dzięki artystycznemu przetworzeniu doświadczeń zewnętrznych twórczość introwersyjna zaś „dzieje się” wskutek przemożnego wpływu treści wewnętrznych przejawiających się za pośrednictwem pióra lub pędzla artysty. Fantazja jest wprawdzie źródłem inspiracji w pracy twórczej, ale jest to dar, który może pochodzić od każdego z czterech typów. “Często słyszymy, że dla artysty zajmowanie się nieświadomością jest niebezpieczne.

Humans Are Free Plug Energy Drains With These Magic Words In learning to manage my energy better, I have stumbled upon some magic words. These words are just as effective for extroverts as introverts , but introverts--with our deep listening habits, our hyperawareness, our busy, busy minds--may need them more. Say these words silently in your head when you feel yourself being sucked into a vortex of other people's demands and expectations. The magic words are: Several readers have written to me about, and I recognize in myself, an oversensitivity to social messages. For example: I'm at a dinner party. Was that really my responsibility? Nope. Photo by sergis blog via Flickr (Creative Commons) Oh, and if I don't really want to go a dinner party to begin with, it's not my responsibility to attend. See how that works? Or consider the chatterbox who corners you with a barrage of words at a party. These magic words don't work on genuine obligations and legitimate responsibilities. And you know their real magic?

The Mind Unleashed | Uncover Your True Potential Who Are You? (And What do You Think of Me?) The New Hire: What Do I Need to Know About This Job Candidate—and How Can I Find It Out? Every Sunday, America's corporate titans share their hiring strategies with . "I have a very good antenna about people," Starbucks founder Howard Schultz told the "Corner Office" column. "First off, I want to know what you're reading and then I'll ask you why. Tell me what work-life balance means to you." Abbe Raven, CEO of A&E Television Network, privileges her "gut reaction." The problem with such freewheeling approaches is that qualities like charisma and compassion are faked in job interviews as much as 90 percent of the time, according to one landmark study. People are hugely overconfident about their ability to judge others in general, and recruiters may be particularly so. Potential employees are in impression-management hyperdrive. Interviewers are drawn to open-ended inquiries because they think they'll zero in on personality. The Potential Lover: Is This Person Attracted to Me?
