KIN 339: Fall 2016 – Week 2 Natalie Wong Lecture 9/1/16: “The Psychology of Human Potential” This is a run down of what happened during class: Class activity: We got into small groups to discuss a scenario provided by Prof. Sverduk Scenario: Victor is a tennis player and has a playoff game closely approaching. Create a list of the factors that could determine his performance and success in the match. Of the list items that each group provided, we further classified the factors into a list that we have control over, that is, things that are not dependent on other things happening. Circle of Control = training (how we train, when we train), who we choose to be in the circle of our support system, diet, equipment, how we warm up our bodies for the given activity, clothing/shoes, hydration, schedule of habits prior to activity Overlying concept: Of the many factors listed by each group, only a handful are in our control. This can be a bit daunting to think about, therefore, when we tend to focus on the uncontrollable factors, we create unnecessary anxiety. SOLUTION: Focus on maximizing the things you can control. Since the controllable factors make up a smaller list, they seem a little more achievable and realistic. Class Discussion topics: relationship between body and mind the conscious and unconscious parts of the mind and what is contained each of those parts the difference between mind and brain, but the inevitable cyclic relationship between the two awareness and how to optimize awareness how we can change our mindset (beliefs and values) NEXT WEEK (9/8/16): NO class meeting on 9/8/16 online discussion: 300 initial response by 9/8, and responses to 4 different classmate’s posts by 9/15. Responses do not have word count guidelines, but should be thoughtful and well crafted.
