Cognitive Development
Samuel Carino
PSY202:   Adult Development and Life Assessment (CNA1211A)
Prof. Don Frey
March 31, 2012



After reviewing the cognitive areas created by K. Warner Schaie, I found that I am currently strong in all areas but some are stronger than others. I also noticed in the graph based on longitude changes in the six areas of cognitive development that in late adult hood some of the cognitive areas decrease dramatically (Witt & Mossler, 2010, Chapter 4: Cognitive Development, Figure 4.4). I hope that with the development of modern medicine that the areas would change with age.
Out of the six cognitive development areas I feel I am strongest at perceptual speed.   The mission that I am currently tasked for puts me in situations where I have to make life changing decisions in the blink of an eye.   My weakest area of the six would be numbers, I always had a problem with math and I will increase that area with the continuation of my education. Throughout my education I will have to use all of the areas to the best of my ability, and with the increase of my knowledge through school I will be able to get better at each area.
I can get better in each cognitive area by studying and applying myself in everything I do. Through time I will develop different methods of expanding my areas of cognitive development. I feel that one way to develop and sustain all six areas will be by living a healthy lifestyle. I also think as I get older if I can stay busy I will be able to sustain the six areas a lot longer than the average man.
