Perspective Experimental


Personality is what defines each individual. Humanistic perspectives of looking at personality is the use of seeing how ordinary humans behave. Ordinary humans act in certain ways, and certain characteristics are unison throughout all humans. Slight variation may cause one person to be shy while others to be outgoing. Part of personality development has to do with growth development. How ones parents nurture their child determines how they may act in the future. For example, if a person comes from an abusive household, they may be prone to abuse their children when they grow older. 

A brief list of personality types



The creation of false memories is the common cause of the incorporation of misleading information into the memory of an event.  For example, if a group of friends continuously talks about a sporting event that you were unable to attend, eventually you are so used to hearing the story you incorporate it as your own memory. Memories can alter how one looks back on past events. Adrenaline alters a persons memory. An increase in adrenaline makes emotional ties to a memory stronger, thus increasing the ability to retain that memory. If a memory of an embarrassing event is replayed in ones mind, eventually, they may build the memory up to be something different. They may alter their memory to make embarrassing or stressful memories more bearable to deal with. In this way, one can alter the perspective of how they view their past.

The Rashomon Effect

The Rashomon Effect is the effect of subjectively altering the perception of a particular event. For example, a class meeting is called to order and a certain topic is debated. The topic is eventually drawn to a conclusion and the members of the class go home. A week later, the members of the class  say 'We didn't agree on that' or 'that's not what you said'. The students altered their views on the subject to make it more suitable to their original ideas and needs. The Rashomon Effect, just like the suppression of memories alters the perception of ones past.

How Adrenaline effects perspective

Adrenaline, also known as epinephrine and non-epinephrine, is the the chemical readies the body for the fight or flight reflex. Adrenaline causes the body to work faster and heightens all of the senses. A person can react quicker, make better judgements, see sharper, and move quicker when an adrenaline rush kicks in. adrenaline effects the way in which our brain processes, because one does not think about their actions as carefully as if they weren't on an adrenaline rush. The person may act impulsively and act of off what may seem to be the best decision at the time
