Cognitive psychology is a piece of that. There are many other factors that affect behavior, mind and brain. Cognitive psychology is concerned with the systematic study of how cognitive processes work. Mind wandering is also a very interesting branch of psychology. It is exceptionally important. We use that time to make a lot of decisions. We think to ourselves and it has a lot of utility and thus should not be ignored. What is it that helps us understand something, or make things not easy for us? Thinking outside the box = creativity. How do we understand what it is? How can we teach creativity or innovatively? Seeing the world differently – situatio▯ ▯he▯e so▯eo▯e asks ▯ou to da▯▯e → pe▯so▯ ▯a▯ ▯e interested or they can be messing with them. SO one situation can be interpreted very differently. So how does culture and social culture make us act differently? Endel Tolvin: the most impressive cognitive ability we have is to imagine a state of affairs that does not exist at the moment. For the demo: 1. When words flashed up we visually perceived the letters. Recognized and understood the words. 2. We put the words together into a sentence we can understand the meaning of 3. We decided whether it was true or false 4. Remembered the condition of hands 5. Chose which hand to raise 6. Moved hand 7. Looked at what other people are doing All of these happened in about a second or a second and a half. Second example: name color on screen: (STROOP TASK) When the color and text of color is different: Reading is an automatic process so we tend to read it. Colo▯s ▯e do▯▯t ▯ead as ▯u▯h. We do▯▯t ▯alk a▯ou▯d sa▯i▯g ▯olo▯s. So it took longer when the process is not automatic. - Maintain the task rule - Perceive the letters and colors - Read the word and extract meaning find more resources at
