As conflicts arise - A constructivist analysis

A harmless story

...two hikers happen to meet in the evening with a cool beer in the Restaurant Alpenblick. Coincidentally, made both the same hike. Especially noticed two of the little Church on the hill, with a fountain and tree. They describe each other, the Church, the tree and the fountain, and are amazed by the description, and the Other of which each is massively different (see image).

- Which is the right Church? (Not religionsphilosophisch to  understand..)
- it is Undisputed that the Church exists
- there is no doubt that the Church has a Form
- Undisputed seems to be that both go to the same Church, have seen

If the two with each other about the Church speak of, and accept, their two churches constructs are different and nothing to do with the actual Church have to do, is everything okay

problems and disagreements arise, then, if the one opposite to the other claims his construct of reality can be the reality or his reality was more real than the reality of the Other.

- A is composed by: This "Church" is thought to be true
- Both insist on their positions. None there after. the
- The two Hiking the next day together to the Church. the

- Each statement is the result of their own subjective construction of reality. It is the experience, "truth"
- Any previous construction of reality is an individually correct and subjectively competent solution
- Basic appreciation of the subjective construction of reality is the Basis of all cooperation

conflicts can arise because the honest people of their Realitätskonstruktionen (as lens experience) want to generalize, and this compared to other people who do the same, want to impose!

A common new reality must be created!


Mental training

Your qualifications will avail them little, if your skills at the crucial Moment, are blocked. Mental Training can help provide the necessary performance at the right Moment to retrieve.

Almost always, when it comes to mental Training, to a certain ability, or the creation of a mental or physical condition either new to learn, to stabilize or improve. Stabilize means, an ability so far to train them, even under adverse circumstances, use can, for instance, under Stress and time pressure.

Improve means that you have a condition more quickly and effectively than previously. What you make should be for the current status of your knowledge and skills fit. Plug it in to high or utopian goals, come you might have already been the first step into a Skid and put your project out of sheer frustration back in the box. Quite a few athletes make at the beginning of their career this error.

Mental Training aims at the improvement of three areas, which are ideally mutually supportive:

1. optimal Action
2. the easiest way to get there, and
3. the most suitable Eigenzustand.

The crucial techniques of mental Appearance are...

techniques of mental Appearance

1. Observe: Study the different tips and tricks that the experts apply to the various challenges in their field to master.

2. With the talking: your impressions stabilize, if your observations step-by-step verbal go through, so how do you before a trip to ask if you all of the important arrangements have been made. In addition, you can use the essential steps to write down or draw and so deepen.

3. Visualize: Check the necessary actions in your mind's eye like a movie. This can be yourself or another Person, the Agent.

4. Ideomotorisches Train: focus on your inner Sinneserlebnisse and try to get in the right mood to dive. Swimmers do so by as Delfi n imagine. A Patient with a hip prosthesis made progress, as he in his time as a dancer back.

5. Nodes describe: Work nodes, i.e. the key points a Handlungsablaufs out. These nodes provide is usually little room for manoeuvre and therefore need to "sit". On them are based the subsequent steps.

6. Nodes rhythm: to Consolidate the essential Handlungsabschnitte by the nodes of rhythm and the rhythm of the overall effort to integrate. Tennisanfänger support, for example, the execution of the markup by the full of rhythm word "Am-ster-dam". the

The complexity of the entire movement and Handlungsablaufs including all the steps in this way is accurately captured and trained, until they are in the subconscious mind as automatism becomes attached. It is not enough, as some Motivationsgurus teachings, only the goal to visualize what all other like self-surrender. the

Rather, it is the same as with a Strichzeichner: Only a master of this art, the field of work for many years trained and has permeated creates it, with a few strokes and hints of the key features of an object in particular. For a layman, but it would be the wrong way, the same with the shorter start.
