pourquoi pas? c:
How do others
decisions affect Us
- What if we just got "it"?
- How do we Influence others?
- Why do I care?
Without the aid of prejudice & custom, I should not be able to find my way across the room; nor know how to conduct myself in any circumstances, nor what to feel in any relation of life. “ – English Critic; (Hazlitt)
What is the problem?
Decisions made without the experience?
Only when its absued...
...... limbic brain can’t deal with randomness well. Our newest brain, the neo cortex
... is designed to create patterns although there may be known or lurking variables that are not seen. - (Yales; Moore, McCabe, 1996)
How We Decide
- Jonah Lehrer
- The "supercomputer of the brain where
- complex decision takes place." - (Lehrer)
The supercomputer of the mind, analyzing millions bytes of data instantaneously
Dopamine Response System
subset of tools for the limbic brain
He says that, conversely, when we make bad decisions, dopamine is not released & an ‘empty’ feeling is sensed.
.... trying the same instance of an scenario repeatly & expecting different results – (Einstein, n.d).
controls decision making; but not language... -(Sinek,2009)
We must consciously make the decision to act on our irrational decision to an extent and understand its origin, from stereotypes & experience.
Why should we care?
~ we have to understand ourselves & why we do what we do.
~ closer to utopia.
~ society that is more compassionate & not eliminate prejudice, but reduce its abuse.
- Preconceived opinion that is not based on reason or actual experience.
An impulse reaction of hate or superioty to a group
Prejudice is not the child of Ignorance
Prejudice is the rubric for how we divide and classify our world for decision making.
When we truly understand,
we love and sympathize
Much less sophisticated than the limbic brain.
Is the true orgin of creativity...
Creativity's origin is from complex association with experience.
When truly understand our enemy, we then love our enemy. - O.S. Card
Why does this affect prejudice?
What does it matter?
... rational brain is used to generate a generic response. It just feels right. - (Sinek, 2009)
However, the capability for language capacity is not there so when trying to examine directly.
I challenge you to affect others through your decisions; not allowing preset prejudice to exclude yourselves; allow yourself to be a part of another social system for some time.
Through understanding, those we call our enemy; the aliens in our social world; we in term will love them as they love themselves.
