Diagnosis of Thinking

    it is a meaningfully specific process of dialectical thinking, giving integrity and completeness to medical knowledge. This definition emphasizes the main feature of clinical thinking - its identity with thinking in any other field of knowledge. Clinical thinking has a certain specificity: a) The subject of research in medicine is special - the human body, covering all areas
  2. Thinking
    Thinking is a solution to the problem of a generalized reflection of the surrounding reality, relying on the already achieved knowledge of its laws and a generalization of individual phenomena and specific facts. Thinking is a generalized reflection of the world and contains the knowledge of many people. It is inextricably linked with speech, since the latter is a means of transmitting thoughts, satisfies the need
    Mapping thinking does not eliminate thinking itself, but facilitates it. Practice organizing your thoughts with colors and
  4. Thinking and Speech
    The human race owes its greatest achievements to the ability to generate complex thoughts, share them and act in accordance with them. Thinking includes a wide range of mental activities. We think when we try to solve a problem given in a class; we think when we are dreaming in anticipation of these classes in the classroom. We think when we decide what to buy at the grocery, when we are planning a vacation,
  5. Software Inclusion of thinking in work
    Come on! Go! The icon representing this stage symbolizes the movement forward and upward, step by step. This suggests growth in increasing order. It is constructive. The line on the icon is continuous and accurate. Now this is no longer an opportunity. We are working on the implementation of our plan. It is absolutely true that action is not a necessary element of thinking. The purpose of thinking may be to collect
  6. Positive thinking
    This method of healing the body is closely related to such a psychological phenomenon as faith. In contrast to the irrational religious faith, psychological faith is associated with productive thinking and the person’s ability to act in accordance with the established attitude. Positive thinking is determined by a person’s faith in his own strength, high self-esteem and an optimistic outlook on life, which
  7. Basic thinking processes
    Before we begin a detailed analysis of each of the five stages, it is worthwhile to give a general idea of ​​the basic processes of thinking. These processes occur at each stage, so it’s nice to consider them first. The main processes that occur in thinking, which we will consider: 1. From general to particular. 2. Planning. 3. Attraction of attention. 4. Recognition. 5. The movement.
  8. Speech and thinking development
    The subject to which this chapter is devoted, the development of speech and thinking, especially the development of higher forms of thinking in childhood, is difficult and complex. Therefore, I will allow myself to start with the simplest - with the most well-known concrete facts, so elementary that I am afraid to be reproached for the extreme simplification of a big problem. But I do not see another way to approach the huge and
  9. Five stages of thinking
    This book is built on five stages of thinking that are not based on an analysis of the ordinary thought process. The analysis is useful in the description, but usually pretty useless in real life. It is a mistake to assume that analysis of the thought process can provide us with the techniques necessary for thinking — the techniques must be practical and necessary. The five stages of thinking described in this book form the framework
  10. Typology of thinking styles
    The style of thinking is determined by how a person collects information and how he processes it. The stylistic features of thinking belong to the individual characteristics of a person. Knowing the existing typologies of thinking styles will allow you to determine your thinking patterns and thereby increase your autopsychological competence. There are two main types of perception of information:

  12. Thinking and Speech Preface
    The present work is a psychological study of one of the most difficult, confusing, and complex questions of experimental psychology - the question of thinking and speech. As far as we know, a systematic experimental development of this problem has not been undertaken at all by any of the researchers. The solution to the problem before us, even with a primary approximation, could be
  13. What is creative thinking?
    We have already talked about how parents are able to help develop the intelligence of their child, for example, through programs for the development of creative thinking, or creativity. There are similar technologies for adults. A number of programs and tests are based on the ideas of the psychologist D.P. Guilford, on his model of the structure of intelligence. In these technologies, creative (divergent) thinking is opposed
  14. The eyes of our thinking
    Let's put aside the 6 x 6 rule for a moment and try to look for solutions in a completely different direction. And the eyes of our thinking will help us in this. In books, at business meetings, conferences, and brainstorming sessions, we are constantly told that we must use “innovative thinking” and “imagination”, as well as “think outside of established patterns”. This is all beautiful -
    Lee Goldman Clinical thinking is difficult to explain. It is based on factors such as experience and learning, inductive and deductive thinking, interpretation of facts whose reproducibility and value are inconsistent, and intuition, which can be difficult to determine. To optimize clinical thinking, a number of attempts have been made to quantify
    Electronic data processing is also used in mapping thinking. This chapter discusses the possibilities offered by the use of programs for compiling maps, as well as the changes that intellect cards have undergone in the course of processing them on

  18. The paradox of thinking
    Edward de Bono, a psychologist and a major expert on creativity, author of The Use of Lateral Thinking, argues that humor and the creative process are essentially the same thing. In both cases, the brain sets the value of the idea - absurd or creative. But this can only happen if the person looks at what is happening with
  19. Thinking and its development in childhood
    Today we have in turn the problem of thinking and its development. We will again begin the analysis of the problem with a schematic sketch of those theoretical concepts that, when applied to the problem of thinking, are now relevant for psychology. As always, the first place from a historical point of view should be an attempt at associative psychology, which for the first time experimentally took up
  20. Concepts and categorization: building blocks of thinking
    Thought can be regarded as the “language of reason." In fact, more than one such language is possible. One of the modes of thinking corresponds to the flow of phrases that we “hear in our consciousness”; it is called propositional thinking because it expresses propositions, or utterances. Another mode - figurative thinking - corresponds to images, especially visual ones, which we “see” in our
