Tutorial 7: Thought and Language Manipulating Mental Representations. Throughout their life humans create mental models or schemata that represent their ideas, beliefs, thoughts, and feelings about themselves and how the world works. The mental models can either empower or disempower us. Disempowering mental models can be re-framed into empowering mental models. Most of the time we are not aware of the mental models we created; they are unconscious. Your task for this tutorial is to: 1) select ONE area in your life that is not working or not working as well as you would like it to (e.g., relationship with a particular person, sitting exams, health, finances, transition to being a student). 2) bring some of the empowering and disempowering mental models you have in that selected area of your life into your awareness and express them in language by writing them down. 3) reflect on: a) the impact the disempowering mental models have on the area of your life that you selected. b) whether your disempowering mental models are in fact true. Express your thoughts in language by writing them down. 4) re-frame the disempowering mental models into empowering mental models. Hint: It is useful (and more fun) to do this activity with a person who has got empowering mental models in the area you selected. (e.g., is successful in the area).
