For the most part I agree that we have set boundaries on what is "me" or "you", although I am having trouble understanding the concept in terms of my knowledge.

Introduction

Arlene Moreno June 2, 2003 Psychology 308 Long Paper 2 My Answer to Handout 6 In answering to handout 6, I would like to begin with stating that cognitive is private, yet I believe it is psychology's job investigate the phenomenon. To that extent I will use all my acquired knowledge from this class to discuss my interpretations and doubts with handout 6. For the most part I agree that we have set boundaries on what is "me" or "you", although I am having trouble understanding the concept in terms of my knowledge. But I am aware that in order for me to identify me as a "self" then the other people must have "self's" too, yet I do not know if this is was the handout is trying to explain. I believe this is like the idea that if there is good, there must be evil, for one cannot exist without the other. For example, Watson believed the mind was associated with the idea of a soul, which did not fit into science. ...read more.

The ice cream was needed to function and Dr. Wapner's awareness of his need for ice cream was cognitive privacy. I will use Dr. Wapner story because I can really distort it apart and it works well in my paper.

Conclusion

Now I realized this is something small, but he is developing self identity and he is now telling me what he likes and does not like. I think it is important for psychology to be aware a notion of the self and identity. I do not know if I am right on the spot which is what Dr. Wapner wanted me to understand. I would really like to know if I am on the right track, because it is important for me understand this so that I can incorporate it into my life. I am a strong believer of self identity and believe it is the essence of psychology, and I believe it because I see in my of son. In the last few papers I have written, I really bashed on Watson but I will admit he did try to make psychology real and honest. In all I have learned in this class self-identification as been the most valuable to me in my life. I am also aware that this is Dr. Wapners last quarter teaching and I would like to say that in the few classes I have been in it has been a pleasure. ...read more.
