On Human Behavior and Personality Structure

-On Human Behavior and Personality Evolution

While reptiles do not have the cognitive adaptations to execute complex actions, a human is very well equipped, in terms of cognitive capacity, for performing basic instinctive behavior such as chasing a prey or fleeing from a predator. By the same comparison, the human brain, a self-composing organ, has the same basic components that manage the behavior of a reptile.

Although it is obvious humans developed more complex neo-cortical brain structures to augment their cognitive capacities, the so called “reptile brain” still has a massive influence in everyday survival and social conducts. This basic instinctive way of processing the environment has proved critical, necessary, and for the moment, impossible to evade.

A complex philosophical discussion might be generated out of the ways of the evolutionary development that our species has been through. For now, we will put aside the philosophical matter and keep in mind the evolutive past of our most complex organ.

-On Human Behavior and Personality Fabrication and Process.

Defining what makes a behavior work is a meta-analytical effort to represent with logical elements a process by which the very same analysis takes place. To be more clear: To analyze your own analysis. This I will try to approach with a subjective, and structuralist based view.

A human personality creates itself by a fine process. At first, an experience from the environment is recieved with Sensing. This experience is compared by Analysis with the data in Survival, Values-Memories and Objectives and stored in the system’s memory. At the same time, yet another objective is created and proceeds to reflect itself by the Execution of an Action-Reaction. Finally, it is stored with the consequential experience within Values-Memories.

By this process, the set of recurrent behavior produced begins to create patterns that are recognized as personality.

The following is an explanatory map by which blue indicates Sensing, green indicates Analysis and purple refers to Execution.
