Sorting Out Emotions | Caltech

Sorting Out Emotions | Caltech | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
Building on previous studies targeting the amygdala, a team of researchers has found that some brain cells recognize emotions based on the viewer's preconceptions rather than the true emotion being expressed.

Another, deeper roots to our biases... on the brain-cell level... well, that might be a challenge...

"These are very exciting findings suggesting that the amygdala doesn't just respond to what we see out there in the world, but rather to what we imagine or believe about the world," says Ralph Adolphs, the Bren Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience at Caltech and coauthor of a paper that discusses the team's study.  "It's particularly interesting because the amygdala has been linked to so many psychiatric diseases, ranging from anxiety to depression to autism.  All of those diseases are about experiences happening in the minds of the patients, rather than objective facts about the world that everyone shares."

emotions are the products of our mind, as much as they are of objective reality out there!

Conférence du psychothérapeute Paul Watzlawick, enregistrée en 1987, à Stuttgart. Traduction française: Peter Cogen. Sous-titrage: Fabrice Pierredon.

Via Philippe Vallat
Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

A classic from one of the most interesting therapeuta and thinker, author of Palo Alto Mental Research Institute... I have found it earlier in German on youtube but now it's also with French subtitle... his books are really amazing,  at the time a very new insight how people are thinking...

 

Just to mention some of his books (in English):

- Change

- Language of change

- How real is real

- The invented reality (editor and author)

- Situation is hopeless, but not serious (not the script of the similarly titled film comedy...:-)))

Sur le bon sens, les comportements obtus, les systèmes sans mécanisme de sauvegarde, notre psychologie humaine qui cherche de la cohérence plutôt que la vérité, les représentations (erronées) du monde, la réalité  etc. avec beaucoup d'humour. A (re)voir.

How Does Your Ego Impact Your Decision Making? | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
Do you know of anyone who has suppressed bad news to preserve their career or reputation?Or told the boss what they wanted to hear instead of the truth?Or overlooked a red flag to preserve the sense of harmony in the workplace?Most often ego is catalogued as 'good' or 'bad', but what if it's simply about your relationship with yourself? At the heart of the matter your ego, your self-esteem, self-worth and personal sense of security, chaperons your decision-making.

Mindful Judgment and Decision Making - Elke U. Weber and Eric J. Johnson

A full range of psychological processes has been put into play to explain judgment and choice phenomena. Complementing work on attention, information integration, and learning, decision research over the past 10 years has also examined the effects of goals, mental representation, and memory processes. In addition to deliberative processes, automatic processes have gotten closer attention, and the emotions revolution has put affective processes on a footing equal to cognitive ones. Psy-chological process models provide natural predictions about individual differences and lifespan changes and integrate across judgment and decision making ( JDM) phenomena. JDM research leverages our knowledge about psychological processes into causal explanations for important judgment and choice regularities, emphasizing the adaptive use of an abundance of processing alternatives. Such explanations supplement and support existing mathematical descriptions of phenomena such as loss aversion or hyperbolic discounting. Unlike such descriptions, they also provide entry points for interventions designed to help people overcome judgments or choices considered undesirable.
