The nuances of human behavior are interesting matters that formally motivate research science to promote, study, and formulate studies. Throughout history the behavioral anomalies of humans raises many important question for the scholar, practitioner, and layman. Therefore, the intricacies and factors that suggest possible explanations present is a subject that many people find interesting to read about. Much of the interest comes from the personal things that all people struggle with individually throughout life. Therefore, human behavior forms a core subject of study in the field of psychology, sociology, and educational research generating research questions, research, opinions, and more questions identifying specific gaps to stimulate more avenues of research to pose fuller explanations describing why people behave as they do, from a scientific and theoretical approach. Obviously, human behavior impacts every area of life in organizations, churches, schools, as well as, the occurrences taking place through the events of every day life. For this reason, this blog presents reflections from research, personal experience, and clinical studies to explore questions in ways that are understandable and fit within the greater context of culture and social interaction with others. The articles posted here are not research studies, but draw from research studies and are devoted to exploring a broad range of problem, questions, challenges, and possible solutions. Consequently, the information provided is compiled to offer information, stimulate discussion, and create a connecting point to understand implications of behaviors, experiences, and connecting plausible information to actions.
One important goal of writing is to provide a meaningful understanding of how to have an effective life a midst cultural, social, spiritual, and personal challenges in life.
In the following pages, you will find a variety of subject matter addressing life issues that you may not always agree with fully. The articles are written from a point of view grounded in personal experience and professional education in the disciplines of Christian theology, psychology, sociology, culture, and philosophy to provide multidisciplinary insight and reflection about observable personal and social behaviors. A critical concern addressed in the pages of material is how to apply personal psychology, developmental science, behavioral theory, and social psychology to important issues encountered in a the lived experience of life. My goal in writing is not to provide all the answers nor to diagnose, but rather to frame information important to many people who have experienced the effects of behavior occurring in a social context. A firm hope in writing this material is to create information to aide thoughtful consideration and to stimulate rational thinking that will aide understanding of all people and behaviors. A further goal is to utilize sound methodology in reasoning to provide a resource that integrates ideas from the various fields of research and theory to construct a reasonable and cogent approach to understanding the complexities of the many experiences of life.
The phenomenon observed through behavior within the situational experience of individuals is important to enhancing understanding about the story of life and improving the quality of each person’s life. Personal experience has taught me that there are reasons to explain why behavior occurs; therefore, it is not enough just to identify behavior, it is equally important to understand why behavior occurs in a particular context, system, and pattern. Consequently, a hope of what is written is to provide a fuller understanding, so individual readers can incorporate awareness to possess a fuller and more meaningful experience of life.
