Humanistic psychology looks at positive realisation, it states that everyone is different and that those differences are good as it makes people have different views. The humanistic approach sets out a hierarchy of needs which everyone work to achieve the goal of being a fully functioning person. The Cognitive view of psychology tries to understand the internal mental processes of an individual, associates brains with computers in the sense that we process information and produce an outcome from the stimulus as we process and give an output on the data we have encoded. The social learning theory depicts people as copying behaviour of others when that behaviour is observed to being rewarding for that person. The psychological approach believes human behaviour as determined by reinforcement and punishment contingencies in the environment.
The Fashion Channel M E M O R A N D U M To: Jared Thomas From: Dana Wheeler Subject: Market Segmentation Mr. Thomas, as you know, The Fashion Channel is facing several competitive threats in the fashion entertainment TV business. The purpose of this memo is to recommend a new segmentation and positioning strategy for TFC in order to strengthen its competitive strategy Recommendations It is my recommendation that TFC move forward with a dual-segment marketing strategy, focusing the programming efforts on the Fashionistas and Shopper/Planners. These two segments are predominately made up of females, ages 18-34 who could offer a significant boost in our margin and net income. I am also recommending that the majority of the advertising, promotion, and public relations budget for the fiscal year be dedicated to building brand loyalty for the two segments listed above. Data Analysis The data provided in appendix 2 lists all the financials associated with the recommendation above.
An example of this is Bandura's bobo doll study of aggression with children. This theory is also useful when treating phobias. But as everything this theory also has disadvantages for example, the fact that it focuses too much on the 'nurture' side of the nature/nurture debate. It suggests that all behaviour is learned but cognitive and biological elements have been proved to affect behaviour an example of this is the assumption that people learn behaviour by observing others getting rewarded for certain actions. It’s also difficult to use this theory with adults, as it is more difficult to manipulate them with punishments and rewards unlike
In other words, psychologists from this perspective study cognition which is ‘the mental act or process by which knowledge is acquired.’ | That it looks at thought processes which were ignored by other psychologists, especially behaviourists.Its theories have been applied to cognitive therapies such as Rational Emotive Therapy. | It is reductionistIt is too mechanical; it compares the human to computers in that they have similar processes. | Humanist perspective can affect your cognitive perspective. This is because the humanist theory believes that you behave the way that you are feeling and because of your self – image, whereas cognitive theory believes that if you want to know why someone is behaving the way they are then you have to get into their minds.
Norms guide all human activity, so the concept of Deviance is quite broad itself. I have seen both Deviance and Beliefs shape the society we live in today. This has helped me gain the capacity to evaluate my own behavior. No ones approval is needed in society one should always remember that ideal culture always differs from real culture while remembering that everyone has responsibilities to others. Sociology lets us define and explain human behavioralism such as Beliefs.
Howe, (1996:1) suggests that “Human Beings are social beings.” Theories of human development have argued from two viewpoints, nature vs. nurture. The nature viewpoint suggests, that from birth each individual has an inherent genetic deposition and capacity to become individualised and participate in society. It stands that our predetermined genes, our genetic blueprints, make us who we are. Our personalities, our physical appearance and character traits are all predetermined and unique to us as individuals, (Crawford, 2003). We developed independently, as nature intended us to be and our social environments have a minimal impact on this development, (Howe, 1995).
It came from the post-modern era. Striving to create the next best thing, the fashion industry looked to postmodernism, a time that drew pieces of the past to move forward to the future. The influence of postmodernism is needed in fashion in order to keep the fashion industry alive. In order to fully understand how both spectrums relate to the other, the post-modern must be discussed. The term post-modern covers a broad range of meanings.
Social Identity is an almost unconscious behavior that human beings adhere to. People will often put themselves and others around them into certain categories in which to help understand and to find their own “level of self.” (Turner et al, 1987) It is a way to associate with certain groups while finding their own distinctive identity within a social structure. One’s fashion and appearance is an essential means on how it will affect one’s social identity, and how it will affect one’s self-esteem. The way that the public use fashion and appearance has considerably changed over the past several decades, and with it the way subcultures and social identities as a whole is studied and discussed. Within the population’s subcultures, social identity had been originally used to show off their own individual characteristics within a unified group based on the notion of standing apart from the masses.
