5 examples of how the languages we speak can affect the way we think

5 examples of how the languages we speak can affect the way we think | Building Authentic Business Relationships | Scoop.it
A look at the ways that the construction of language can have implications for the way we think, act and parse the world around us.

Renee Baribeau's insight:

In Pormpuraaw, an Australian Aboriginal community, you wouldn’t refer to an object as on your “left” or “right,” but rather as “northeast” or “southwest. Some languages do not define the future. How does this affect your perception.

For me, this is confirmation that how we speak affects how we think and therefore how we perceive and feel.

HOW THE BRAIN WORKS: MEMORIES ARE PATTERNS ORGANIZED IN LISTS | Wisdom for Future Leaders

HOW THE BRAIN WORKS: MEMORIES ARE PATTERNS ORGANIZED IN LISTS | Wisdom for Future Leaders | Building Authentic Business Relationships | Scoop.it

Via Karin Sebelin
Renee Baribeau's insight:

How the brain works.

more...
Karin Sebelin's curator insight, May 14, 2013 5:05 AM

The brain stores and processes information and there is more between brains and computers than may be apparent. Each time we do something – or think of something – whether it is brushing our teeth, walking across the kitchen, contemplating a business problem or coming up with a new idea, we reflect on how we were able to accomplish it.


A good example to raise awareness of how our brain works is this experiment:


-> Recite the alphabet
Result: You remember this from childhood and you can do it easily.


-> Now try this: Recite the alphabet backward.
Result: You have extreme difficulties.


Why? Because we do not remember whole images.


Our memories are sequential and in order. They can only be accessed in
the order that they are remembered. We are unable to directly reverse the sequence of a memory. And we have difficulty starting a memory in the middle of a sequence. When we have learned to play a piece of music on the piano we cannot just begin at an arbritrary point in the middle of the piece.


Next problem:


-> Think about people whom you have encountered only once or twice.
Can you visualize them clearly?


When we have to identify a criminal the police will not ask:
What did the criminal’s eyes look like? Rather, the police will show us a series of images of eyes and will ask to select one.


What does that show?


There are no images, videos, or sound recordings stored in the brain. Our memories are stored as sequences of patterns. And memories that are not accessed dim over time.


Here the best example for our ability to think in patterns and to being able to recognize patterns:


Garry Kasparov, the world chess champion, has indeed learned to remember 100.000 board positions! Armed with that knowledge Kasparov looks at the chessboard and compares the patterns that he sees to all 100.000 board situations that he has mastered and he does all 100.000 comparisons simultaneously. Striking, isn’t it?


Our memories are in fact patterns organized in lists (where each item in each list is another pattern in the cortical hierarchy) that we have learned and then recognize when presented with the appropriate stimulus. Memories exist in the neocortex in order to be recognized.

 

OUR BRAIN IS A FASCINATING ORGAN … WE SHOULD LEARN TO USE IT MORE EFFECTIVELY!

When are humans most happy? To gather data on this question, Matt Killingsworth built an app, Track Your Happiness, that let people report their feelings in real time. Among the surprising results: We're often happiest when we're lost in the moment. And the flip side: The more our mind wanders, the less happy we can be. (Filmed at TEDxCambridge.)

Mercedes Benz uses Whole Brain Thinking Creativity at Work

Of course.

Karin Sebelin's curator insight, May 14, 2013 7:02 AM

This ad campaign revolves around “the two opposing parts of the brain that complement each other”: the left side, responsible for logic and analysis and the creative and intuitive right side. The message is that Mercedes Benz, like the brain, is a combination of opposites that together create technological innovation, breakthrough engineering, inspiring design and passion. It was created by Shalmor Avnon Amichay/Y&R Interactive, Tel Aviv  for Mercedes Benz Israel.

The story says:

Left brain

I am the left brain.
I am a scientist. A mathematician.
I love the familiar. I categorize. I am accurate. Linear.
Analytical. Strategic. I am practical.
Always in control. A master of words and language.
Realistic. I calculate equations and play with numbers.
I am order. I am logic.
I know exactly who I am.

Right brain

I am the right brain.
I am creativity. A free spirit. I am passion.
Yearning. Sensuality. I am the sound of roaring laughter.
I am taste. The feeling of sand beneath bare feet.
I am movement. Vivid colors.
I am the urge to paint on an empty canvas.
I am boundless imagination. Art. Poetry. I sense. I feel.
I am everything I wanted to be.

Mercedes-Benz
The best or nothing.

Whole Brain Thinking is what we should learn.

Karin Sebelin's curator insight, June 7, 2013 4:41 AM

by +Dharmesh Shah, Founder and CTO at HubSpot

What is confidence?

Dharmesh Shah explains confidence like that:
Confidence is quiet:
It’s a natural expression of ability, expertise, and self-regard.

He states 9 qualities of truly confident people:

1. They take a stand not because they think they are always right … but because they are not afraid to be wrong.

2. They listen ten times more than they speak.

3. They duck the spotlight so it shines on others.

4. They freely ask for help.

5. They think, “Why not me?”

6. They don't put down other people.

7. They aren’t afraid to look silly…

8. … And they own their mistakes.

9. They only seek approval from the people who really matter.

My opinion:
I have learned that confidence has nothing to do with "I am the best, I master everything" but with "I trust in my abilities, I am humble and I have faith". Confident people don't need the limelight, they sparkle through what they do.
I like these words here:  "... true validation comes from within."

John Michel's curator insight, July 8, 2013 11:34 PM

Dropping our self-importance and replacing it through humility leads to inner silence. We are able to see the world with clear eyes. And we see ourselves more clearly as we are. We no longer compare to others and we see others as equal. Humble people don’t see the own success as most important. They help others to become successful, too.
