Perception and attention influence whether an individual displays an open or fixed mindset.
Perception and attention influence whether an individual displays an open or fixed mindset. From this mindset as well as from one’s physiological set, an individual creates a mental map that leads to predictive patterns of behavior. These cognitive maps provide a sense of control over what is happening in one’s world; explain how the individual should evaluate events; and give the individual a sense of confidence, control, and stability. In this assignment, you will address the notion of predictive patterns of behavior and their relationship to mindset and physiological set. Write a paper (1,750 words) that discusses the notion of predictive patterns of behavior. Address the following in the paper:
- How do physiology and mental programming cause predictive patterns of behavior? Consider notions of perception, attention, imagery, memory, and cognitive mapping.
- What, if anything, can dramatically change those predictive patterns?
- How does this information explain both how an individual will behave and what interventions might influence his or her behavior given these parameters?
- APA format, 5 peer-review journal articles, in-text citations, reference page
