This will paper will explain the critical thinking process. It will explain the sensing process and define memory, it will also identify what medium is. Last but no least it will Identify personal barriers and describe thoughts. Sensing process has to do with the way humans perceive things like seeing, hearing, smell, taste and touch. Humans perceive stimuli from the outside and inside of their body. Sensing controls the way the brain functions it allows people to pick up on vibes, and have gut feelings about certain situations. Sensing helps the brain observe and get ideas about things that are happening around them. People are able to pick up on things easily, and suspect things without even knowing what the situation might be.
Memory is the process that is used to store information in the brain in which it makes it easier to retain, and retrieve information from it later on. There are three major processes that make up the memory process. Encoding: is the process that forms new memories and information by changing into usable form. Once information has been locked into the brain, it is stored in the memory for later use. Stored memory: can be found outside of our awareness the majority of the time, except for when it needs to be used.
Retrieval process allows the human brain to bring memories that have been stored back into awareness and conscious. Without the process of memory people would not be able to do their daily activities in which they need in order to survive in life. Medium is the language that is used for communication it is designed to transmit information from a speaker to a writer. Medium is the sender, audience and receiver.
My perception was far from the actual facts when I thought that my boyfriend felt the same way about me as I felt about him. In beginning everything was great he acted like he was so much in love with me but in reality it was lie. Going into our second year of our relationship my boyfriend told me that he wasn’t in love with me he said that he really liked me but he didn’t love me because he does not know what love is. When he told me this I did not know what to do I felt very heartbroken and confused.
Outline your own perceptual process.
What did you think was going on?
I thought that our feelings were mutual, I thought that he and I were building a strong relationship and one day we were going to get married.
What was really going on?
Our relationship was based on a lie he made me believe that his feelings were mutual but in reality he was living a lie, he was playing games with my heart.
Why was there such a difference?
I believed that our relationship was going good and that we were in love. Meanwhile his feelings were totally different and he was only with me because of the things I could do for him.
How did language empower or limit the expression of your thoughts?
Hearing the words come out verbally triggered my emotions, I felt angry and sad from the words he told me.
What did you learn about your thinking by evaluating the situation again?
I learned that I could never trust him again, I also learned to reserve myself and not jump into things so quickly.
Personal barriers are factors that prevent people from achieving their goals or
My thoughts were influenced by the personal barrier denial. I was in denial about the things my boyfriend told me. My personal barrier would not allow my thoughts to register clearly I was in denial about my feelings, I didn’t want to believe the truth. Thoughts can be manipulated by personal barriers when the mind doesn’t allow the brain to deal with the situation a move. Instead of moving on our personal barriers take over our mind in which it causes us to lash out and make hasty decisions.
Critical thinking is a very crucial topic it helps people understand how the human brain works. Without the thinking process our life would be a vegetable. Thinking help us be able to survive in the world and learn from our mistakes.
