“The ability to act sensibly, promptly, and appropriately, especially in a difficult situation or emergency” describes a Presence of Mind. This late 1600s, idiom in effect says that one's mind is present and functioning. Some may attribute this to a person’s propensity to exercise self-control over their emotions and make lucid decisions when faced with adversity. As I ascribe to eagerly ascertain not only an evolving mind, but one of presence this has brought about a period of introspection. In the course of this reflective occasion, oral communication and attention to detail are availed as my strong suits whilst time management and adaptability were definitive deficits.
The stone was cold and I could feel the pain swelling up inside. I took a step towards the edge, I thought to myself, “One more step and the worries would end…” if only it was that easy.
The brain-dead seldom seem like they’re dead. The rise and fall of their chests is so convincing, the ventilator seems like an ornament rather than the single source of oxygen that keeps their hearts beating. Their skin is warm to the touch, and condensation clings to the inside of the catheter from the fresh streams of body-temperature urine. Despite how peaceful they look, their bodies are undergoing progressive autolysis, utter and massive self-destruction. Without the helm of consciousness, my father and all of the patients in his section of the intensive care unit seemed adrift in a tiny boat on a wild, infinite sea – yet unconcerned about finding their way back to
Your evidence for DNA is the most practical and straight forward of all evidence. We all see parts of ourselves from both parents, as we see us and our parents, in our children. I look just like my mom with the exception of my dad’s complexion and hair type. My son baby pictures, look just like my mom, yet now he favors my dad more. I, myself, am completely an extrovert, with a very outgoing personality just as my mother is, whereas my father is just the opposite. My son is starting to take this trait from myself and my mom, easily seen in his never meeting a stranger, talkative, funny ways, as well as his mischievousness LOL.
The brain's default mode is when a person is not active or focuses on the present experience that is occurring. The default mode also occurs when the individual is thinking about others, thinking about themselves, remembering the past, and planning for the future. When people are mindful they are able to make better respond and decision in their life despite not being in default mode most of the time. An experience where I was aware I was in default mode is when in class and not putting attention. One day, about a week ago in math class I was so into my thoughts, that when I realize this I had missed a great portion of inequalities that day. However, I noticed that I was thinking about what happen yesterday on my show which is Degrassi on
Writing about myself is hard because I think too fast that my ideas are never in any kind of order let alone grammatically in order I can’t spell nor write as fast as I think, but what I can is so much more I can speak to you about anything I know and if I don’t know it becomes my goal to learn it and that is what thrives me in my career goals. I have a plan and then I have dreams; my plan is a more realistic version of my dreams and that is to become a research molecular biologist but my plan is to start school maybe finish after a masters be a teacher for a couple of years and then quit to get a PhD the real difference between these two thought processes is that I follow my dream and give flame fire and love to my
I have a hard time recalling my early writing instruction, but what I do recall was not pleasant. I struggled with words, writing and reading for much of education so writing was not my favorite thing to do. However, I do recall the need for perfection that was so frustrating, as it was a struggle just to produce the imperfect stuff. We did minimal work with the five-step process, prewriting, writing, revise, edit, and publish, until I was in high school. Currently, this is something that is being introduced at a much lower grade and in different ways to engage students. Also, certain aspects of writing, such as spelling, are not required to have perfection
Right before July 4th it was one of the best memories with my family. It was a nice day and their was a breeze that I felt on my skin and the sound that made me feel calm. We were all laughing and everyone has a smile on their face. I was with my mom, dad, sister , and my godbrother. That day we went to Water Tower in downtown Chicago and went to my favorite store called Marbles The Brain Store. They have cool games and gadgets. After that we went to get food from food life and I had a really good pizza. It smelled like a freshly baked out the oven and when you bite into it cheese started to ooze out of the good pizza. It tastes really cheesy and the bread was baked just right.
The Brain dominance theory has two hemispheres that include the right and left brain. Both sides of the brain controls different types of thinking. The right brain is expressive and can do creative tasks. The left brain is more structured and organized. The theory is based on what is known as the lateralization of brain function. From recent research, the abilities in subjects are stronger when the brain works as one. One of the strongest subjects is math when the brain works as a whole. (Cherry)
The body and soul are twins, when one parts the other must follow. The soul of his longtime comrade, Wyatt Gifford was long gone. The effects of rigor mortis replaced the boisterous facial expressions that were once so familiar. Here laid the lifeless, cold corpse of Gifford, whose soul was no longer a prisoner of the body. Gifford’s soul seemed to have lingered in the body, and then it sought its escape, as its life comrade – the body – no longer functioned. All that remained of the companion of his boyhood was an empty shell. Gifford’s body had no practical use; it didn’t have to carry a soul of a person full of life and energy.
When reading through the points listed in the article, I found myself connecting to all them. Some I found to be more of a weakness than others, but all the same, they were relatable.
This explains the difficulties people have in creating a coherent narrative: if the two sides of the brain are not working together, the story will be either chaotic and confused--overwhelming feeling, overwhelmed thought--or superficially logical but lacking the emotional oomph of a good coherent autobiographical story. There is a connector between the two sides, the corpus callosum. This is how the two sides of the brain communicate. The corpus callosum is the bundle of nerves that connects the two sides and integrates the emotional and cognitive aspects of our existence. We need the functions of both sides to have balance and derive the most out of life. Hypothalamus--receives incoming information through our senses: sight, smell, hearing,
I wanted to start a business. Sitting in my windowless basement office, across the hall from my state-of-the-art quantum physics laser lab, I decided I was going to start selling my services as a professional mentalist and hypnotist.
Valerie, you and I seem to be opposites in our dominant and weak functions. Personally, I believed that thinking was my dominant function while feeling was my weakest. I have a tendency to try and gather as many facts as I can about a given situation and based on what I’ve been given, I then allow myself to use my feeling function, which I believe to be more introverted than extroverted. That being said, I think your strength with the feeling function really helps you with your job. However, the two of us did get the same attitude result from the questionnaire, and I also was not surprised that the quiz labeled me an introvert. I think we were also right in knowing which function was more dominant in ourselves. While you ended up being an INFJ,
This week was exam week. I went into this week feeling good about the exam until it was handed to me, then I drew a blank. After looking at my grade I feel a little better. The chapter memory seems like it is going to be a little bit challenging. The memory tests were fun. The number test was easier. I used my fingers as numbers. As the teacher would say a number I would move my fingers as it I were to be playing a piano reciting my numbers while she would say her. It actually worked. The first memory test was good until “artichoke”. Really? I was doing so good until that moment. The eye witness video was an eye opener. It made me realize how much your mind can actually play a trick on you. You can influence your mind into believing something
