The Theory of Human Development :: Papers
What defecates a person what they are? wherefore does a person do what they do? Where does record come from and how does it bring out? These are some frequently asked questions when discussing the topic of personality. The latter(prenominal) of the questions is actually an do in itself. Personality does originate from a specific point, and from then on it continues to grow and become exponentially more complex. This core point from which personality begins and the growth of it will be discussed in the sections to follow, but first we must(prenominal) look at certain assumptions that are commonly made when exploitation a personality theory. Assumptions The first of these assumptions concerns whether one studys that the behaviors, any type of action, a person exhibits are produced by conscious choices and ends, also known as escaped will, or determined by forces beyond ones control. I believe in the free will explanation, but not the type of free will commonly imagined. Huma ns do finally reach the office to choose their actions, however the extreme influence of other factors, such as heredity, environment, and learned behaviors, may make it seem like a persons actions were predetermined. For example, if a starving people were put into positions where they could either eat a vacuum tube turkey round placed in front of them or conscionable sit there and survey and stare at it, common horse sense shows that these people would eat. However, it is possible that one person, like an anorexic, would just sit and stare at the sandwich. For that reason, it can be assumed that human beings do have free will, however the choices made are greatly impacted and plain determined by inherited basic fatalitys, environment, and learned behaviors. This leads us into a second assumption, rationalism or irrationalism. Do human beings operate in the main on the basis of intellect, or on the basis of impulses and passions? The answer is the latter theory. Going back to the Subway example, the most likely decision on whether or not to eat the turkey round would be ground on an irrational impulse in ones subconscious. The basic physiological need of food has a profound influence on the given choice. scarce note that this is only the most likely response and not a definite one. There is always the chance that a person could make a conscious, rational decision not to eat. Because a people ultimately do have some sort of a conscious decision over their actions, it cannot be assumed that behavior is solely determined by irrational impulses.
