Document Summary

Behaviourists do not agree with freud"s theory, and many cognitive and psychodynamic psychologists believe it is out dated. Cognitive psychologists reject the notion of an unconscious mind driven by instinctive urges and repressed conflicts. Rather, they view conscious and unconscious mental life as complementary forms of information processing. Controlled versus automatic processing controlled processing: the voluntary use of attention and conscious effort automatic processing: take little or no conscious effort (routine tasks, etc) things that are use conscious effort such as typing eventually become automatic. Divided attention: automatic processing facilitates divided attention, the ability to perform more than one task at a time. Modern psychodynamic views emphasize that emotional and motivational processes operate unconsciously and influence behaviour these hidden processes can cause to feel and act in ways we cannot explain. > circadian rythems: our daily biological clocks biological cycles within the body that occur on an approximately 24-hour cycle.
