Why do people behave the way they do? What are the factors which influence the behaviour of humans? What is the role of the Spirit, the Soul, The Mind and the Consciousness in what is commonly known as human character or personality? How is human behaviour controlled so that it remains within acceptable limits? Is freedom of expression compromised by false data and invalid standards? What factors are responsible for the exhibition of extreme types of behaviour? What is the role of malevolent indoctrination or propaganda in the exhibition of such extreme behaviour? How does one safeguard the purity of one’s Mind and how does one publicly project the best possible personality?
Questions, such as those above and many others similar to them, are answered in a simple yet factual manner. The structure and processes involved in the determination of one’s behaviour are explained in detail and the explanation is accompanied by many relevant examples. One is given in detail the methods in order to ensure that one evaluates all critical standards and references used in one’s behaviour control mechanism; one is also given the basis upon which one may develop the skills required in order to pre-empt other peoples’ response or reaction to a particular situation. This fact provides one with an advantage against other people in almost all areas of human activity. Understanding what is hidden behind the façade presented by an individual or group of individuals, enables one to select the most effective method of communicating or interacting with them. But one of the greatest benefits in acquiring these skills is that one may use them in designing, for oneself, the best possible control mechanism consisting of high value standards and therefore achieving what is commonly referred to, as self-development or self-improvement.
I enjoyed it!45
Very exhaustive requisite for my psyche in relegated, marginalized anthropology. Sudden expertise eye-catcher beginning in the first chapters(the walls built before the folders). Unbelievable recollection vitality via speculative summary. Closing chapter was capitalizing to a peak of suspense(lost of all progress falling weak to indoctrination. Surely that could be unwillingly, but yet still unfortunate.55
indeed, great read55
Open up your imagination to free your mind from prison55
This book is very relevant today with regard to divisions in politics, control of schools and, in general, propaganda. Especially relevant is the discussion of how the children can be so profoundly affected by teaching in schools.55
So short but so mind changing.55
