Open Lecture on the Adults’ Learning Context: 5-21-2014 – 4:00 pm ET

By Peter Belohlavek – The nature of the Adults’ Learning Context that was discovered demonstrates that people can only store knowledge objects in their long-term memory if this information is necessary and proved to be meaningful to solve problems they have. Only needs drive real learning! Hypothetical solutions are pastime activities; they might be fun but are useless.We recommend accessing: http://www.unicist.org/repo/#Education

Open lecture on the Discovery of Human Ontointelligence

This lecture is for the group of the “Organization Committee” and is open for guests. It will take place as a “Hangout On Air” on November 8th at 12:00 pm US-EST.
Access: https://plus.google.com/+UnicistOrg

Peter Belohlavek

It is a 20-minute lecture starting at:

India 10:30 pm
European Central Time 6:00 pm
UK 5:00 pm
Brazil 3:00 pm
US PST 9:00 am
Mexico (DF) 11:00 am

This discovery is a major breakthrough in the research on human behavior that was based on the complexity research methodology.

The discovery of ontointelligence, the intelligence humans use to access the nature of reality in order to adapt to the environment, increased significantly the predictability of human behavior and the possibilities to influence it.

This lecture is the first lecture for the preparation of the cases of the XI International Unicist Conference that will take place in September 2014.

We invite you to participate. It will begin at 12:00 pm (US-EST) sharp.

Unicist Thinking: Apprehending the Nature of Leadership

This is just an example to explain how to emulate a given reality in mind using the unicist thinking capacity in order to apprehend its nature.

The unicist ontology of leadership describes the nature of leadership in order to be able to use the adequate leadership for any situation.

Understanding the nature of leadership is basic to find the natural place to develop one’s activities. It also helps to understand how to influence people and how to respond to the influence of others.

The basics of leadership

Leadership is based on the need to sustain one’s authority. The participation of others is a condition of leadership. A leader is such because s/he is followed.

Therefore, in terms of the unicist logic, participation is the active function of leadership and the energy conservation function is given by the power a leader has to impose her/his authority. But this is a sort of paradox.

The energy conservation function is given by the power the individual “does not use”. If the power is used it consumes energy and, in fact, a double amount of energy, because:

  1. To impose something there is a need to exert power and consume energy.
  2. When power is exerted, authority is being lost, because it means that the authority of the individual has not been accepted. And in this case, an additional amount of energy must be invested to reconstruct the value of the authoritative role.

Participation poses another paradoxical dilemma:

  1. When the authority of the leader is extreme, for example a religious leader, the participation is not possible.
  2. When the participation is extreme, there is no possibility to accept an authoritative role.

Emulating Leadership in mind

The double dialectical thinking is what allows defining the concept of leadership. The construction is described in the following chart:

To make a valid emulation, the supplementation and complementation needs to be defined.

The preceding structure that defines the nature of leadership has been researched and you can find its abstract at:

Research on People with Attention Disorder in Businesses

A research on adults having an ADHD condition was developed to define their possibilities to evolve in the business world.

“Professor Michael Fitzgerald, MD, of Dublin’s Trinity College, has examined the lives of notable achievers including Thomas Edison, Kurt Cobain, Oscar Wilde, Lord Byron, Jules Verne, Che Guevara, James Dean, Clark Gable, Pablo Picasso, Mark Twain and Sir Walter Raleigh. Based on his research, the professor believes all these high achievers had or displayed symptoms of ADHD.

People with ADHD have symptoms of inattentiveness, but they often also have a capacity to hyper-focus on a narrow area that is of particular interest to them. Clearly ADHD is not a guarantee of genius, but the focused work rate that it produces may enable creative genius to flourish.”

Three groups participated in the research which was based on the following hypotheses:

The limit between ADHD and focusing problems is an unknown field.

The capacity of focusing is driven by ethical intelligence which allows using the adequate brain waves to define and sustain a focus on a specific aspect of reality.

This condition is extremely functional when it is focused on the use of their core functional intelligence. https://www.unicist.org/talents/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/ontointelligence_en.pdf

The condition to expand their possibility of focusing depends on the expansion of their area of interest having the necessary functional intelligence to do so.

Being adults they have great difficulties to enter a new field starting a new learning process if it is beyond their hyper-focus area.

When the syndrome is installed the person rejects any stimulus that fosters the expansion of their present focusing area. They distrust the process and the people who manage it.

They function in an adapted way in their field of hyper-focus and are over-adapted in the rest of the fields of their activity.

They are extremely successful when their functional intelligence is adapted to a specific reality and they have a value adding ethical intelligence.

The groups included:

A)    3 Participants with hypothetical ADHD disorder.

B)    3 Participants with focusing problems.

C)    3 Participants with no focusing problems.

The stimuli provided were centered on dealing with the adaptive aspects of business and the tasks to be developed were:

Understanding the foundations of the unicist approach.

Understanding the homology between unicist business residencies and medical residencies.

Developing a learning contract to start with a learning program on the unicist approach.

These hypotheses have been provisionally validated and we invite non-profit research organizations to access the conclusions if they want to continue with the research. Please contact Peter Belohlavek at The Unicist Research Institute who personally developed the research.

Permanent Research Groups of The Unicist Research Institute

The Unicist Research Institute has permanent chapters of research groups. There are four problem driven chapters and one subject driven chapter. The problem driven chapters are: Complex Systems, Evolution, Human Behavioral Evolution and Economics. The subject driven chapter is Semiotics.

Until June 2012 these groups have been integrated by the users of the applied research and coordinated by Peter Belohlavek. Access the approach to complexity science at:
