THE POWERS AND PERILS OF INTUITION
This lesson teach us about the memory is partly controlled and partly automatic. Our
memory is not just actually the full memory. It just a copy of a part of memory. We can’t
store everything inside the memory bank.
The thinking, divided into controlled and automatic. Controlled thinking can be control by the
owner and automatic thinking is unconscious. Automatic thinking contains schemas which
mean the mental concept that guide our interpretation and perception. For example, when
you tell a girl what the fox look like. Then, she wil imagine the structure of the fox. But, when
she sees a wolf, she see the same characteristic on the wolf. She will initially call it is a fox.
Besides, our life can’t without memory.It help us remember all important thing in our life and
it cannot be replace by the technology. For example, we need to remember the important
person phone number so that we can still contact them if the phone of anything is missing.It
prove that memory can take an important place.
Next, the emotional reaction means the happened before there is time to deliberate thinking.
We also learn about the construction of memories. It states that our current feelings and
expectation are used to combine information fragments. Besides, our self-image and
present are not only shaped by the past.
In a nutshell, I feel that the people who always feel too much as the attitude is under the
This lesson teaches us about the attitude. As we know that, attitude is positive or negative
evaluation of object of thought. However, it is not just only that.
Attitude is important in our life. Positive attitude can let us think about the good thing and do
work in a proper way. In opposite, negative attitude will lead you to think about the bad thing
and also have a bad mood when working. During the lesson, we learn that attitude basically
have 3 components which are cognitive, affective and also behavioral. Cognitive is about the
idea while affective about feeling and behavioral means predispositions to act.
For example, a person with positive attitude will let you feel energetic and will influence the
people surround feel happy. But, a person with negative attitude will make you feel sad and
no energy. That is the difference between positive and negative attitude.
Some interesting advertisement will show the behind meaning of the advertisement. It’s
always show the positive and negative attitude inside. So, this will attract the attention of the
viewer and let them think about the interesting meaning. It is about the attitude.
The roly-poly and the mouse experiment show that we have reinforcement after action. In
case, we will have positive and negative reinforcement too. For example, when the adult
become the example of the child that beat the roly-poly, the negative reinforcement will
create. The child will start to follow what adult do even though they had not been teaching
before. Another experiment, the mouse will learn something after get the punishment or
reward. The negative reinforcement also created.
In conclusion, I feel that attitude will influence a lot for a person. It is very important in our life.
Lastly, always have a positive attitude will make the life more meaningful.
