An Introduction to THINKING STYLES
时间:2009-2-15 下午 04:34:14,点击:0

During the 1980s, researchers in communications and psychology discovered that different groups of North Americans communicated according to different patterns of expectation, goal, attitude, and assumption.

A huge amount of misunderstanding and miscommunication developed from the fact that individuals who used one style of thinking typically assumed that all other people used their own thinking style. In other words, most of the population assumed that their was only one correct or sane method of thinking. This assumption produced a great amount of intolerance, impatience, abuse, frustration, and inefficiency in the communication and relationships which were formed between individuals.

This simplistic understanding of others is a development of authoritarian social and political structures and is present in all politicized groups. The resulting US-THEM adversarial interaction pattern has contributed to relationship division, separation, abandonment, and divorce. On a larger scale it has supported unjust legal systems which substitute endless laws and costly legal battlegrounds of depersonalized fact for education systems which encourage the respectful appreciation and fair treatment of others.

From a spiritual perspective, the Ego- or SuperEgo domination of others under the protection of secular rationalizations of status-quo standards of right and wrong is unsatisfactory. Anyone who has lived more than 2 or 3 decades can attest to the constancy of such values changing --- an indication of their inadequateness and inherent unjustness.

An improved alternative, with a spiritual perspective, is to learn to acknowledge the several obvious styles in which people have demonstrated that they think. Each style has its own strengths and weaknesses so each demands respect and self-discipline. Each style provides the greatest opportunity for successful involvement or intervention in very specific environment. Outside those environments, they fail.

Most individuals who have been tested have been found to use only 1 thinking style. A few have learned to use several styles. A very few use multiple styles to decision-making. Those who are adept at recognizing and using different thinking styles as is relevant to the circumstance and their other communication skills are consistently better communicators.

Almost anyone can acquire an appreciation of Thinking Styles by familiarizing themselves with the material available on the subject. Many can further increase their success in communicating by choosing to practice using each Style and making themselves able to use it constructively.

Provided here are point-form summaries of each Thinking Style.
Make your life more exciting and constructive by becoming aware of which Style or styles you rely upon and which are difficult for you to acknowledge, appreciate, or express. The challenge for you is to develop an awareness and skills which increase your potential for success in interactions which benefit, even rely upon, good communication. That means the opportunity is for you to experience deeper intimacy, a happier marriage, more efficiency in your duties, more consistency in having good health, more assurance in your goals, faster advancement in your career, greater respect from your social groups, more contentment in your activities.

You are worth the effort and the benefits.
Only you can make it happen.
