De fapt cand gandeste omul cu propria sa minte? Si cum face sa isi ia propriile sale decizii fara a mai fi influentat de reverse engineering-ul emotional al campaniilor electorale?

Nimic nu se compara cu disperarea de a pierde pentru cei ce traiesc pentru castig. Iar cand mass-media plus  “cel ce are puterea de a-ti rezolva problemele”  cu transele lor de autoritate te fac sa crezi ca vine sfarsitul lumii, ca haterul e la moda, ca rasismul redivivus, xenofobia renascent, homophobia crescent and misoginismul explodeaza si totul se trage de la “ceilalti”; de la establishment, la apparatchik, wall street, big corporations, albi, emigranti, musulmani sau alte culori…

Atunci comunicarea publica aluneca intr-o criza de valori, de fapt de non-valori exprimate tare si pe toate canalele. Emotiile limitative, ura, dezgustul, rusinea, si nu in ultimul rand frica scoate oamenii din case si de la treburi pentru nevoile altora de castig-putere.

De fapt cand gandeste omul cu propria sa minte? Si cum face sa isi ia propriile sale decizii fara a mai influentat de reverse engineering-ul emotional al campaniilor electorale?

Prin teoria profesorului Robert Kegan (cercetator la Harvard University) intelegem unde ne aflam in evolutia constiintei de sine si cat de mult suntem influentati de lumea (obiectele) din jur.

Pe scurt in teoria lui Kegan subiectul este “eu” si obiectul este “non-eu” iar acestea sunt cele 5 stagii de dezvoltare a constiintei de sine a si a perceptiei lumii din jur.

  • The Impulsive Mind (1st order of consciousness): the first stage is what mainly characterizes the behavior of children, who are unable to distinguish objects from people in the environment. This is the basic level of development. The person and the environment are linked. (Learning  Perceptual Position)
  • Instrumental Mind (2nd order of consciousness): Individuals in this stage (usually until adolescence) are self-centered and see others as facilitators or obstacles to the realization of their own desires. At this stage, the human being has only one perspective, his own. (NLP First Perceptual Position – or Me)
  • The Socialized Mind (3rd order of consciousness): at this level of consciousness, the person identity is tied to living in relationship with others in roles determined by his local culture.  Such a person is subject to the opinions of others and is therefore strongly influenced by what he believes others want to hear.  Such a stance tends to be reliant on authority for direction and less likely to question, making one a loyal follower. Approximately 58% of the adult population is until this level of consciousness. (NLP Second Perceptual Position – or Him or Her)
  • The Self-Authoring Mind (4th order of consciousness):  is able to take a step back from its environment and hold it as object, regarding his culture critically.  The Self-Authoring mind is able to distinguish the opinions of others from one’s own opinions to formulate one’s own “seat of judgment”.  The result is a “self-authoring” of one’s own identity that is independent from one’s environment.  Guided by their own internal compass, such a person then becomes subject to his own ideology.  These individuals tend to be self-directed, independent thinkers. (NLP Third Perceptual Position – or Observer)
  • The Self-Transforming Mind (5th order of consciousness): is the highest level of consciousness in Kegan’s model.  From this point of view, one is able to regard multiple ideologies simultaneously and compare them, being wary of any single one.  This multi-frame perspective is able to hold the contradictions between competing belief systems and is therefore subject to the dialectic between systems of thought.  Less than 1% of the adult population is at this level of development. (NLP  New Code Multiple Perceptual Positions -all four by own choice)

Iar relatia obiect (non-eu)-si subiect (eu) defineste fundamental modul in care gandim, simtim, relationam social,  intelegem realitatea din jur si …alegem TRUMP – “A Greater America” sau Hilary – “Stronger together”, Igor Dodon – “Moldova are viitor” , Rumen Radev – “We Decide Together!” sau comunul ”Îndrăznește să crezi în România…”.
