“The actualising tendency refers to the tendency in all forms of organic life towards more complex organisation, the fulfilment of potential, and in human beings, the actualisation of the whole person including the persons self” (Merry 2002). Through my own experience I believe there is a need for positive self regard in order for an individual to make positive choices and trust in their own decisions.”To develop a sense of trust in the accuracy and reliability of our own inner experiencing” (Merry 2002). Again through personal experiences I understand the effect of the conditions of worth have on individuals. I believe that these affect us later in life and can be explored
Resemblance was centering the idea that objects that may be familiar to someone can spark certain memories. The law of contiguity is concerned with experiencing things at the same time, which creates an association between these two things. Cause and effect was based upon the idea that if two things are regularly associated with one another an individual might come to associate these two events. These laws of association
Cognitive restructuring techniques commonly center on producing a confident self-image, encouraging constructive social interactions, and removing thought deformations (mistakes in reasonableness or points of view). However, regardless of their shared goals, diverse approaches apply to some extent, different actions and ways to achieve their purpose (CTU Online, 2012, pg.1). The primary theory behind cognitive restructuring is that an individual’s reactions and conduct can be significantly influenced by something they believe. If an individual could intentionally alter the habit of what they say to themselves, and what depictions they portray to themselves, then they could render themselves more content or nicer or more constructive or could achieve one of numerous other beneficial adjustments; simply stated, that by correcting our way of reasoning, we can constructively change how we feel and how we take action (Strayhorn, 2003). The cognitive restructuring theory would facilitate Tom in learning to control his anger by learning how to change his way of thoughts, thus changing how he permits events to control his
Such contemporary thoughts include the idea that imagination is much more than an image or a “mental” photograph, but a portal to another place that allows it’s creator to entirely experience it. A simple image encaptures the two dimensional appearance of a moment in time. Imagination, however, is a tool that allows a person to transport themselves entirely to the place of their own desire or creation. It enables them not to simply observe an image they form, but to experience it. This reading is established from my close analysis of the text’s descriptive language and imagery.
They are able to transform with the help of imagination, and our ability to spontaneously generate images within out mind. It helps provide meaning to experience and it is a fundamental facility through which people make sense of the world, and keeps us able to manage our lives. Landscape in our minds is not what we literally see, but how we want to see things. As life is experienced, it is interpreted via our senses; as such it is perceived by contrast to most thoughts and imaginings. In fact, reality leaves a lot to the imagination and mind to process what is concrete into something more dimensional.
Once the needs have been fulfilled or achieved, people are then able to move to the next level. Maslow believed that these needs are similar to instincts and play a major role in motivating behavior (Cherry, 2010). Existentialism uses a philosophical approach which is called phenomenology. Phenomena are the contents of consciousness within an individual which are, the things, qualities, relationships, acts, memories, feelings, thoughts, fantasies, images, events, and so on, which we experience in our
Critical thinking would allow one to be able to “second-guess” themselves but in a more constructive manner that is conducive to their needs and wants. What Is Critical Thinking? Critical thinking is a self-motivated, self-guided, and methodic approach to our thinking process. Critical thinking affords us the opportunity to base our decision making processes off of key essential elements, they are: clarity, assurance, and rational understanding. Critical thinking allows us the chance to place importance and meaning on our past and current situations; while at the same time, shaping, molding, and directing the outcomes of our future by influencing our choices and decisions that we will make.

TOK Writing Assignment (Sense Perception) By its very nature every embodied spirit is doomed to suffer and enjoy in solitude. Sensations, feelings, insights, fancies - all these are private and, except through symbols and at second hand, incommunicable. -Aldous Huxley (1954) Much of what everyone acquires and takes in form of world base on our five basic senses; touch, taste, smell, hearing, and sight, which is known as sense perception. Sense perception is conceived as our private and very first way of knowing, since we are born with sense from which we feel the world around us. Unlike languages, believes, memories and any other ways of knowing, sense perception is a natural ability within us for acquiring the knowledge.
