Individual Behavior in a Psychosocial World

How people are changed

The nuances of  human behavior 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.  Human behavior is a core subject of study in the field of psychology, sociology, and educational research that generates  opinions, research, and questions  posing specific questions to offer explanations to describe why people behave as they do. from a theoretical approach.   Obviously, human behavior impacts every area of life in organizations, churches, schools, as well as, the occurrences taking place in every day life.  For this reason, this blog page is written to explore questions in ways that are understandable and fit within the greater context of of culture and social interaction with others.  The articles posted here are not research studies, but 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 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 education in the disciplines of Christian theology,  psychology, sociology, culture, and philosophy to provide holistic 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, but rather to frame questions that are 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 for 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.

  1. Hi Ronnie, I must say that am truly refreshed and edify through reading some of your article. I am thankful to God for giving you such grace of wisdom and understanding in helping society make sense of the truth, in terms of behavioral transformation. Unfortunately, very little is been achieved regarding the reformation of the fallen human nature, which i believe is the primary purpose of the Church. I am of the strong opinion that until we {the Body of Christ} are able to correctly deal with the deformity of behavioral character, little or nothing will be achieved regarding socioeconomic development and transformation globally. May the Lord continue to enrich your spirit with the revelation of his Son. Stay blessed.

    1. Thanks for the review Char, I appreciate the attention to my blog and and my integration of psychological theory with theology and philosophy. I hope you students find some value in the things that I write. Stay in touch…
