1-1 Discussion: Cognitive Processes From Past to Present

 
In this discussion, we will explore our preconceived notions about our own cognitive abilities. To answer the questions below, use the textbook reading, as well as your own life experiences. Your initial post should be a minimum of 200 words. When you describe ideas that are not your own, be sure to paraphrase and not use direct quotations.
For your initial post, address the following:

According to the behaviorists Watson and Skinner, we could never know what is really going on in the mind. However, that is the focus of cognitive psychology. Do you think we can really understand the mind? Why or why not?
What do you see as your biggest cognitive strength and why? To get you started, review and comment on the following examples:

Are you someone who spots something out of place?
Are you someone who is good at doing two things at once?
Are you someone who is a master of trivia?
Are you someone who is good at maintaining laser-like focus?
Are you someone who can recall what they did for their fifth birthday?

 What is one cognitive function of your mind that you would like to improve? Describe why you would like improvement in that area.
Do you think we are good judges of what is going on in our own mind?
How does the concept of cognitive strengths and areas for improvement apply to any of the following programmatic course themes?

Self-care
Social justice
Emotional intelligence (EI)
Career connections
Ethics

Remember to respond to two peers while being respectful of and sensitive to their viewpoints. Consider advancing the discussion in the following ways:

Post an article, video, or visual to reinforce a peer’s idea or challenge them to see their point from a different perspective.
Engage in conversation with your peers around cognitive processes. Consider asking a question or sharing your personal experience.
