...Cognitive Processes s Cognitive Processes Introduction According to Robinson-Riegler and Robinson-Riegler (2008), learning is a natural task carried out by humans to facilitate better and more fulfilling life development. In general, human beings learn through, observation or even through other classical methods. Humans learn how to adapt to specific disciplines as well as how to ignore some unnecessary responsive stimulus though classical methods. However, in applying the available learning methods, human beings must pass through a comprehensive cognitive process. There are several types of stimulus or cognitive processes common in human growth and development. Different people employ... the...

...Cognitive Psychology I have learned that the main focus of this branch of psychology is on the way people get hold of, store, and retrieve information in their brains. It helps us study the internal mental states of an individual. Hence, it is unlike behaviorism that only focuses on observable behaviors. It was easy for me to grasp concepts about cognitive psychology when I looked at the many advantages it offers to the psychologists. For example, I learnt that it helps in cognitive research regarding enhancing memory, improving decision-making capability, and designing such educational curricula that helps enhance the learning process.

...COGNITIVE DEVELOPMENT The basic premises of cognitive development theory Cognitive theory concentrates on the way an individual reacts to situations based on their thought process. It deals with the link between a person’s perceptions and the resulting emotions, sensations, behaviors and personality. And many people believe that without these thoughts humans would be devoid of any emotion, and would be just like empty vessels. Cognitive development can then be defined as the development of every human being’s ability to Deduce and analyze. The basic fact that every human being processes information in a different manner...

While the common sense does help a lot in rational analysis and decision making, there is also a dark side to the excessive reliance on common sense which organizational personnel need to be wary of; their instincts are capable of steering them in the wrong way. This is termed by the behavioral psychologists as “cognitive bias”.

How individuals perceive, conceive, recall from memory, articulate their views and arrive at conclusions, etc, are all studied. As opposed to Freudian psychology, Cognitive psychology adopts a scientific analytic method rather than introspective or speculative theorizing. At the outset, it acknowledges the presence of such internal mental states as knowledge, belief, motivation, desire, etc. Before Cognitive Psychology attained recognition Behaviorism was the dominant school of thought.
