Goldilocks and the 8 Cognitive Processes – Sue Blair

November 12 @ 5:15 pm 6:15 pm Australia/Sydney

Assumption: The perfect human being has not yet been created. Even Mary Poppins said she was only “practically perfect” (in every way!!!) So, how, why and where do we go wrong and what can we do about it? The truth is that we all use all of these functions, but we tend not to use each of them equally well. There is a time and energy component to their use and, for some, use of a function is habitual and for others it is momentary. In this session we put the Goldilocks Theory to the test. We will take a look at each of the cognitive processes, define them and then suggest ways in which we can use each of them ‘too much’, ‘too little’ and (on a good day) ‘just right’. There is no better place than a Type conference to gather our combined wisdom and learn from each other about what it is really like to be us. A place where we honour diversity and practice inclusivity. We will learn, laugh and leave enlightened.
