Modelul National de Performanta

De ce fiecare dintre noi actionam asa de diferit? De ce ceva ne atrage si putem sa interactionam fara limite si ceva ne indeparteaza si facem lucrurile in sila? De ce nu intelegem cand cineva comunica cu noi si ne intelegem perfect cu altcineva? De ce ne luam deciziile asa si nu altfel? De ce ne place sa lucram intr-un mediu si fugim de alt mediu? De ce fiecare opereaza dupa propriul sau sistem de operare? De ce gandim diferit? De ce credem sau valorizam lumea diferit? Sunt intrebari ale caror raspunsuri le cunosti sau le poti deduce din rapoartele de profilare. Mai ales cand iti vei compara raportul de profilare cu al celui de langa tine. Si asa unul langa celalat, profil langa profil, construim un  Model National de Performanta –  Romania (Performance Standard Romania).

Be careful what you say! Babies learn meaning of words months earlier than first thought

 

By JULIAN GAVAGHAN

Proud parents have long suspected that behind their baby’s gurgling lies a mind that is keen and sharp.

And now scientists have confirmed that those as young as six months can understand a wide vocabulary, and that if parents speak to them normally it could improve their language skills later on.

A study by psychologists suggests that babies can understand words months before they can say them, confounds traditional scientific thinking that they start to grasp their meaning at about a year old.

The building blocks of language: Babies can learn basic words by age six months due to their exposure to what their parents and siblings might talk about

It was thought that children of that age could understand elements of the sound of their own native language but not connect the sounds to meanings.

Many psychologists believed word comprehension would not being before the first birthday.

But in fact they understand at a younger age, argue psychologists Elika Bergelson and Daniel Swingley in journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

The pair found that when a caregiver repeated a statement such as ‘where’s the apple’, the child’s eyes would move to the relevant object on a computer screen.

In a study of 33 youngsters aged six to nine months they found the kids would more their eyes to the correct object even when a clutter of different things were shown on screen.

In tests, the researchers found that the six- to nine-month-old babies fixed their gaze more on the picture that was named than on the other image or images, indicating that they understood that the word was associated with the appropriate object.

How stress works

by Jamie Smart

When we believe our agitated, unpleasant feelings are coming from
something other than THOUGHT taking form in the moment
(e.g. money, other people, the past, the future, health, etc.)…

We automatically assume something other than
thinking has power over our felt experience

Which puts us at the mercy of that “something other than our thinking”
and thrusts us into the position of “victim”…

Making it essential that we control/manage/manipulate that
“something other than our thinking” in order to protect/
guarantee our felt experience, now and in the future…

So our heads fill up with superstitious thinking, a “to-do list”
of management tactics sponsored by this mistaken belief…

And because we’re always feeling our thinking, we have
a felt experience of this “troubling” world, where “something other than
our thinking” has power over how we feel…

Resulting in a congested, speedy mind…
insecurity, neediness and isolation…
stress, worry and anxiety…
etc.

—-
We’re never stressed out about what we think we’re stressed out about…
We’re only ever stressed out because we believe we’re feeling something other than thinking in the moment…

Modelling Excellence

What is Modelling?

In NLP, modelling is a five stage process as described by John Grinder and Carmen Bostic St Clair in their book, “Whispering in the Wind”. This is distinct from analytical modelling, also known as cognitive modelling, in which the expert subject will be asked questions about their process.

The disadvantage with analytical modelling is that conscious preconceptions of the questionner influence what is asked and conscious preconceptions of the expert influence the answers given. While experts do their best to teach, many of their books and lectures show evidence that they may not be the best people to describe their own expertise accurately.

Fritz Perls and Virginia Satir, the early models for NLP pattern development, held classes in their own therapies and both failed to teach the sensory acuity and language patterns they used so effectively to elicit change with their clients. It took NLP modelling, using unconscious uptake with no preconceptions to isolate the essential patterns that made the difference.

The five stages of NLP modelling require the following:

First a suitable model is selected. If it is worth modelling someone, they should be a model of excellence at their skill or in their field. Some people ask, “How do you identify excellence”? This is a subjective matter, but we can look for elegance, minimal effort and congruence in the model when they are performing in their context. We can compare the results they achieve with those of other exemplars, including the merely competent.

A suitable model is also someone with whom we can spend time while they work. NLP modelling does not function with written work or sound recordings. Video recording is a very poor second to live modelling and should only be considered as a last resort. For training modelling projects, it is more useful to model someone who does something with excellence than to model someone unavailable in person.

Having identified one or more excellent models in a skill, the act of modelling requires us to spend time in the presence of the model while they work or perform their expert function. Our state includes open peripheral vision, internal silence and minimal tension required to assume a similar posture to the model. In this state, we observe, listen, match anduse micro-muscle movement to mimic the model’s micro behaviour over time, while we remain comfortable with not knowing. It is essential to keep everything we take in at this stage, unconscious, so no speculation and no searching for meaning.

The third stage of modelling is reaching criteria. This will only happen cleanly if we are rigorous in our unconscious uptake. We continue modelling with unconscious uptake until we can achieve the same class of results as the model and in the same time frame. When we can do this, we continue to practice our skill unconsciously. Just because we reach criteria does not mean the skill is reliably available immediately and would remain intact under conscious scrutiny. We need a period of unconsciously led skill practice before conscious awareness starts to happen spontaneously. If we are modelling for our own use, the project ends at this point and we do not search for more conscious awareness. We use our skill in real time with unconscious, automated flow.

The fourth stage is only necessary when modelling is intended for skill transfer to others. The skill can become conscious after a period of unconscious practice and will begin to do so spontaneously. The choice in coding the model for transfer depends on the area of expertise and the manner in which it functions. Often, there is choice in how to represent something depending on the desired outcome and the capacity of the learners.

Finally, the model is coded, arranged into stages for transfer and others learn the skills. The evidence for successful coding and transfer is in the performance of the learners. ]

Nine Essential Qualities of Mindfulness

Learn how to say “yes” to the present moment.
by Melanie A. Greenberg, Ph.D.

Meditation is one aspect of mindfulness
Most people these days are stressed out by the fast pace of life, economy, and worries about the future. In a recent survey, conducted in the UK, a whopping 86 percent agreed that “people would be much happier and healthier if they knew how to slow down and live in the moment” (Mental Health Foundation, 2010). It is no wonder that mindfulness has rapidly gained attention in the popular press and is one of the few complementary medicine techniques to be offered in hospitals and clinics worldwide. But what exactly is mindfulness?
Mindfulness is a mind-body medicine practice, based on ancient Zen Buddhist meditation techniques, that was popularized by Jon Kabat-Zinn, a researcher at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. According to Kabat-Zinn, mindfulness is an internal resource that all of us already have within us. The idea is to channel or direct this resource to transform our relationships with stress, emotions, pain, and illness. Indeed, controlled research studies suggest that mindfulness-based interventions can effectively reduce symptoms in people with chronic pain, recurrent depression, anxiety disorders, substance abuse, binge-eating, and many other health conditions. Mindfulness interventions have also been shown to change the brain’s grey matter and reactivity to emotional stimuli in ways that promote greater conscious control over emotion.

Mind/Body Medicine

There is mounting evidence that mind-body techniques like relaxation and hypnosis may actually affect the course of disease.
By Daniel Goleman, Joel Gurin,

At the University of Massachusetts Medical Center, 30 patients with diverse medical conditions—including heart disease, cancer, diabetes, chronic back pain, and colitis—sit meditating with eyes closed, focusing in utter stillness on the feeling of their breath moving in and out of their bodies. Most who practice this on a daily basis report relief from many medical symptoms.

At a hospital in Cleveland, children with chronic, intractable pain from cancer are being taught to escape it by visualizing themselves in a relaxed, happy place.

Such studies are producing an ever growing body of evidence that portends a sea change in the way health-care professionals and patients are viewing the role of the mind in the treatment of illness. Relaxation, hypnosis, and other mind-body approaches have been used in Western medicine for decades by traditional healers. Two things are different today: these approaches are gaining more respect and interest from researchers in major medical institutions; and evidence is mounting that mind-body techniques may actually affect the course of disease itself.

6 Mindfulness Exercises That Each Take Less Than 1 Minute

by Alice Boyes, Ph.D. in In Practice

Here are 6 short mindfulness exercises you can incorporate into your day if you’re not keen on formal meditation.

1. Two mindful bites.

Instead of attempting to do mindful eating all the time, try mindful eating for the first two bites of any meal or snack.

For the first two bites of any meal or snack you eat, pay attention to the sensory experiences – the texture, taste, smell, and appearance of the food, and the sounds when you bite into your food.

You don’t need to savor per se, you’re just paying attention to your sensory experience in an experiential rather than evaluative way.

2. What one breath feels like.

Instead of formal meditation, try paying attention to what one breath feels like.

ACADEMIA NLP ROMANIA – BUSINESS NLP APPLICATIONS

Mult mai plastic si mai sonor upgrade-ul site-ului Academiei NLP Romania  (institut de certificare NLP acreditat la International Trainers Academy of NLP, organizatie creata de dr. John Grinder, Carmen Bostic St Clair si Michael Carroll) avand o pagina dedicata consultantei manageriale pentru afaceri in situatii economice delicate, numit sugestiv ca un serviciul de ambulanta pentru afaceri: 112CORPORATE.

Serviciul 112 CORPORATE a inceput de la discutie cu Stelian (Apwin) acum aproape un an.

Stateam la o cafea la Gloria Jeans in Mall-ul di  Banesa si ne gandeam cat de spre buda o mai ia economia reala daca nu incepe sa tina cont de (citez din  memorie din Dan Pink):
1. ce se poate automatiza (citeam undeva ca in 2030 capacitatea de procesare a computerelor va depasi capacitatea umana) ,
2. ce se poate face in Asia (Harvardul a deschis scoala la India Research Center in Mumbai)
3. ce se face deja din abundenta in lume (daca te gandesti ca portocalele se arunca in Spania sa mai creasca pretul iar mancarea se arunca la hypermarket in Romania sa nu o vanda cumva spiritele “caritabile”) cu bataie spre Blue Ocean Stategy.
<div>

Beam cafea si vorbeam de evaluari in corporatii, chestie in care Stelian are coatele batatorite la Apwin.
Si am pus intrebarea banala:

“Mai dar voi nu evaluati si oamenii?”

NU.

Atunci pe loc mi-am adus aminte de vorba fostului drector de la Romvac pe la inceputul economiei de piata in Romania, cand intrigat ca in pliantul care-l produceam pentru ei aparea un vaccin impotriva hepatitiei B “pentru porci” in timp ce oamenii zaceau prin spitale cu ficatul zdrente, l-am intrebat “cum dracu pentru porci exista si pentru oameni nu?”.

Raspunsul a venit genial, il folosesc si astazi in curs: “Domnule, porcul are valoare de inventar!”.

Asa ca plecand de la oameni am ajuns la CORPORATII, adica tot la oameni, am bagat valoarea de inventar si am lansat “SMURDUL pentru Afaceri”: 112CORPORATE.

Ori oamenii vindeca compania cu 112 CORPORATE  ori ajunge la medico-legal sau la serviciul funerar! Chestiune de dorinte si nevoi tot pentru oameni (de afaceri, patroni, manageri, practicieni in insolventa, bancheri, operativi,etc.).

E.deBono: The intelligence trap
Unfortunately, many people with a high intelligence actually turn out to be poor thinkers. They get caught in the ‘intelligence trap’, of which there are many aspects. For example, a highly intelligent person may take up a view on a subject and then defend that view (through choice of premises and perception) very ably. The better someone is able to defend a view, the less inclined is that person actually to explore the subject. So the highly intelligent person can get trapped by intelligence, together with our usual sense of logic that you cannot be more right than right, into one point of view. The less intelligent person is less sure of his or her rightness and therefore more free to explore the subject and other points of view.
A highly intelligent person usually grows up with a sense of that intellectual superiority and needs to be seen to be ‘right’ and ‘clever’. Such a person is less willing to risk creative and constructive ideas, because such ideas may take a time to show their worth or to get accepted. Highly intelligent people are often attracted to the quick pay-off of negativity. If you attack someone else’s ideas or thinking, there can be an immediate achievement together with a useful sense of superiority. In intellectual terms attack is also cheap and easy because the attacker can always choose the frame of reference.           From Edward de Bono’s I Am Right, You Are Wrong

OBJECTIVISM VS. EXPERIENTIALISM

“The meaningful thought and reason essentially concern the nature of
the organism doing the thinking–including the nature of its body, its
interactions in its environment, its social character, and so on. ”

We will be calling the traditional view objectivism for the following
reason: Modern attempts to make it work assume that rational thought
consists of the manipulation of abstract symbols and that these symbols
get their meaning via a correspondence with the world, objectively construed,
that is, independent of the understanding of any organism. A collection
of symbols placed in correspondence with an objectively structured
world is viewed as a representation of reality. On the objectivist
view, all rational thought involves the manipulation of abstract symbols
which are given meaning only via conventional correspondences with
things in the external world.

Body Communication

In Metaphors in Mind (p. 85) we say that our nonverbal behaviour is primarily for our own benefit rather than for communication with others. Recent research has confirmed that observation:

Gesticulating with the hands helps us to organise our thoughts better when we are speaking and frees up short-term (working) memory for other tasks, according to findings by psychologists at the University of Chicago.  Seventy-two mathematics undergraduates were asked first to memorise a series of letters or arrangements of dots and then to explain how they had arrived at solutions to maths problems they had been set earlier.  Afterwards, they were tested on their recall of the letters or dots.  When students were allowed to make hand movements during their explanations, they recalled significantly more of the letters or dots than when they were asked to refrain from gesturing.  The researchers’ explanation is that hand gestures “provide a framework that complements and organises speech and thus lightens the burden on working memory”.

‘Point to Make A Point – And Improve Your Memory’

Human Givens Journal, Vol. 11, No. 2, 2004

Nonverbal behaviour becomes ‘body language’ when an observer uses it to (mostly unconsciously) create a model of the mind of the gesturer and ‘mind read’ the meaning the nonverbal behaviour has for the person them self.

Also, the body has several advantages over language as a medium of communication. To give just two examples:

Because the body can do more than one thing at once, it can ‘communicate’ several ‘messages’ simultaneously.

When the messages don’t match Bandler & Grinder called it a ‘simultaneous incongruity’. From a Symbolic Modelling viewpoint, however, ‘simultaneous incongruity’ is a judgment by an observer (including a person observing them self) who does not understand enough of the system. When Symbolic Modelling we presuppose that as long as a system continues to exist there will be both a coherence within the system and a coherence to the relationship between the system and its immediate environment — it  just looks like incongruity from the outside.

The body can more easily represent degree, shades or continuum, i.e. analogue distinctions.

In the Encyclopedia of Systemic NLP and NLP New Coding, Robert Dilts and Judith DeLozier explain the centrality of the body to ‘Somatic Syntax’:

“One of the tenets of Somatic Syntax is that the body itself is a ‘representational system’.  Rather than perceiving it as simply being some kind of mechanical shell for inputting and outputting signals to and from the brain, Somatic Syntax views the body as a means of representing and processing information … According to Somatic Syntax, we can use our bodies to make a model of the world just as we do with our other representational systems.  We can represent key relationships in the world around us and in our personal history in the relationship between parts of our body … [Our bodies] have the capability to represent information in at least two ways: literally and figuratively.  As is the case with our other representational modalities, metaphorical representations are often more meaningful and impactful because they carry multiple levels of information.  (p. 12)

FELDENKRAIS ON LEARNING

“Willpower is necessary only where ability to do is lacking.  Learning, as I see it, is not the training of willpower but the acquisition of the skill to inhibit parasitic action and the ability to direct clear motivations as a result of self-knowledge.” (p. xl)

“In the learning stage, a number of habitual and faintly recognized motivations enact themselves.  The essential in learning is to become able to recognize these unwanted faint motivations and to discard them … on examining any of our acts that do not bring the intended result — or, better still, those that just barely succeed or are more or less a failure, we will always find ourselves enacting extraneous motivations that are due to habit and formed attitude.”  (p. 21)

“[As a child every new] act has not only (1) the normal physiological and mechanical difficulties to be overcome through learning, but also (2) the ever present adult whose approval must be sought and met.  All these normal conditions make it practically impossible to learn anything without linking it with an affect, a sort of third eye, which watches our mobilization of means and reinstates the original corrective influence in most details.  The result of all this is that we screw ourselves up to do things and thus come to associate with all action a sensation of effort.  The internal resistance then becomes part and parcel of the action, and a necessary component to perform it.  How many people can use a pair of scissors, especially if they are not perfectly sharp, without producing all the contortions of the fact, the tongue, the shoulders, and abdomen that originally they had learned together with this action?”  (p. 58)

“If we try to learn any new skill, we find our muscles enacting not only the projected act, but also much else that is unnecessary and often contradictory to the motivated action.

Learning to inhibit unwanted contractions of muscles that function without, or in spite of, our will, is the main task in coordinating action.  We have to learn to inhibit those cells of the motor cortex to which the excitation spreads.  Before we become able to excite a precise pattern of cells in the wanted order, the neighboring cells all along the pattern of the cells essential to the movement become active.  After adequate apprenticeship, when proficiency is achieved, only those cells that command the muscles for the desired performance along send out impulses.  All the others are inhibited.  Without this inhibition, no coordinated action is possible.

The sensation of difficulty or resistance to action is indirectly due to the imperfect inhibition of the cells commanding the antagonistic muscles that are indispensable in forming the desired pattern.  Most of the time it is not the simple inability to inhibit the parasitic contractions that is the problem, but the attempt to simultaneously enact mutually exclusive patterns … Correct coordinated action seems, and feels, effortless no matter how great the actual amount of work involved may be.”  (p. 85-86, our italics)

Body of Thought:

How Trivial Sensations Can Influence Reasoning, Social Judgment and Perception Fleeting sensations and body movements hold sway over what we feel and how we think

By Siri Carpenter

In Brief

The mind uses the body to make sense of abstract ideas. Thus, seemingly trivial sensations and actions—mimicking a smile, holding smooth or rough objects, nodding or giving a thumbs-up—can influence social judgment, language comprehension, visual perception and even reasoning.
The flexing of our facial muscles does not just reflect our emotions but is necessary for our experiencing them.
People represent the concepts of past and future in a bodily code that includes direction of movement and perception of space.
We can now get a grasp of our own feelings and actions by looking beyond our minds to our bodies and the world around us. Such a perspective can point us toward actions that change the way we think and learn.
Why do we look up to those we respect, stoop to the level of those we disdain and think warmly about those we love? Why do we hide dirty secrets or wash our hands of worries? Why do we ponder weighty subjects and feel a load lift after we have made a decision? Why do we look back on the past and forward to the future?

Such turns of phrase, invoking a physical reality that stands in for intangible concepts, might seem like linguistic flights of fancy. But a rapidly growing body of research indicates that metaphors joining body and mind reflect a central fact about the way we think: the mind uses the body to make sense of abstract concepts. Thus, seemingly trivial sensations and actions—mimicking a smile or a frown, holding smooth or rough objects, nodding or giving a thumbs-up—can influence high-level psychological processes such as social judgment, language comprehension, visual perception and even reasoning about insubstantial notions such as time.

Learn to Learn by Embracing Surprise

by Winston Sieck

We humans like to think we understand the world pretty well. It gives us a fair amount of comfort to think our beliefs about how things work are spot on. When our human-made devices, our friends, or other bits of the natural world don’t behave as we anticipate, it’s all too common to write off the experience as an exception. It’s also normal to get somewhat peeved in the process. Although these responses are typical and understandable, we often do better when we treat the surprise as a curiosity – something interesting in its own right to explore and find out more about. Doing so may not always be comfortable, but will help you to be smarter. If you learn to learn from surprises, you will come to understand more about how things reallywork.

Dr. Kevin Dunbar of the University of Maryland conducted studies to better understand how people make scientific discoveries. In his research, Dunbar created a game-like simulation that allowed his research subjects to play scientists in a biology lab. Their mission was to attempt to discover how particular genes work. The simulation was based on real findings and theory from genetics research originally conducted by Drs. Monod and Jacob.

The subjects, playing the role of would-be-famous biologists, were also given the same original belief about how the genes worked that Monod and Jacob had at the start of their research. The hypothesis they were given was, in fact, wrong, though it could help explain and anticipate some of the data. The biologist-players were able to conduct experiments to test this original hypothesis, and it was not long before they found evidence inconsistent with it.

At this point, the players dealt with the unexpected results in one of two ways. One group of players continued to seek evidence to support the original hypothesis, apparently sweeping the bad findings under the rug. None of these participants ever discovered the actual mechanism governing gene behavior.

Others instead paused to set a new goal. Instead of conducting more tests of their original hypothesis, they set up new experiments to try to explain the cause of the puzzling findings. These participants learned more about how the genes worked, and tended to come up with the correct hypothesis by the end of the experiment.

These, and other data, led Dunbar to conclude that people make discoveries when they encounter evidence that is inconsistent with their theories, and then try to determine the cause of the unexpected findings.

Learn to learn using this same strategy in your daily life, and you will begin to get smarter.

Whether you are on a path to win the Nobel prize, or just want to better understand your computer or your spouse, making an effort to get to the bottom of the little puzzles you come across can help you to learn more about what makes things tick.

Wisdom: From Philosophy to Neuroscience (Stephen Hall)

Reviewed by Lynne Fenton, M.D.
I was attracted to this book by its title and the illustration of the neuron on the cover. It reminded me of psychotherapy. Like many of you, I spend a lot of time thinking about what is helpful for patients, how to attempt to be wise, and how to impart wisdom to patients and trainees. And as an avid consumer of neuroscience literature, I looked forward to reading about brain studies on wisdom.

Written by science journalist Stephen S. Hall, Wisdom was sparked by an article he was asked to write for The New York Times Magazine. Later, he expanded the article into this book, and I have to admire him for taking on this important and difficult topic.

Francis Bacon’s idols

In the Novum Organum (the new instrumentality for the acquisition of knowledge) Francis Bacon classified the intellectual fallacies of his time under four headings which he called idols. He distinguished them as idols of the Tribe, idols of the Cave, idols of the Marketplace and idols of the Theater.

An idol is an image, in this case held in the mind, which receives veneration but is without substance in itself. Bacon did not regard idols as symbols, but rather as fixations. In this respect he anticipated modern psychology.

Human Basic Needs

by Florin Colceag

    I’ll try to define some of the brain characteristics, beginning with the hypothesis of the fractal development of the brain.

    I take in consideration the necessity of informational feed back for every stage of development, and the successive complication of the brain structures during the evolution.

    The general formula of the informational feedback is:

1) data entrance, 2)data processing ,3)data using , 4)data exit , 5) processing exit data , 6)using exit data.

    The phenomenal approach has been done , refining the previous concept .So 1.4 means that the primary approach is of data entrance (1) ,the next approach is the expression part of the entered data . I use in this material three coordinates .So 1.4.3  .give more information about the previous expression in the used data part.

Peak performance

It’s tough to compete in today’s informal educational marketplace. Tight budgets, keen competition, new technologies, and the changing needs of the public we serve all call for new standards of excellence. Paralleling this demand for excellence has been the timely emergence of a fascinating development – the science of peak performance. This article weaves together some of the most important research findings from this emerging science, thereby creating a cogent, practical model for peak performance.

Peak performance has nothing to do with being a workaholic. It doesn’t add stress and tension to our lives. It’s not a special or mystical process reserved for the selected few. Rather, peak performance is an enjoyable, fairly easy-to-learn process for doing what’s important to us in a more satisfying and effective way than we ordinarily believe possible.

Charles Garfield, the computer scientist, psychologist, and world-class athlete who has been one of the leading figures in the study of high achievement, said he first heard the term “peak performance” from a cancer patient, a nationally known concert pianist who said, “Staying alive these days is my peak performance.”1 Eighty years ago, William James, the great American psychologist, wrote: “Most people live…in a very restricted circle of their potential being….Great emergencies and crises show us how much greater our vital resources are than we had supposed.”
