9781456825348: Meet Your Playful Mind Volume 2: The Interaction Betwen Instinct and Intellect and its Impact on Human Behavior

The Interactions Between Instinct and Intellect and its Impact on Human Behavior Length: 286 Pages I argue that human affairs divide into the two categories of serious affairs and fun affairs. The pleasure seeking aspect of humanity mostly revolves around fun, compassion, amazement and amusement, and sexuality that together constitute humans' Playful Mind, covered in this book. As Shakespeare says, "to be human is to play." Different instincts constantly precipitate varying human interests and energize all human emotions and compel them to interact. For example, the artists through their endless beautiful arts and athletes through their amazing athletic abilities purge life of boredom and render life endlessly joyous and pleasing. There are those who says, heaven belongs to mothers, but I say while that is true, it also belongs to great artists and athletes. However, without understanding what inner forces make these phenomena compellingly captivating for humans we will continue to enjoy them without properly understanding what it is that we so enjoy. In that, humans have enjoyed arts and sports for millennia without being able to articulate exactly what in these seemingly frivolous activities so engrosses these superbly intelligent and purposeful beings, humans. Hence, we have been relishing that which we do not understand at all. To use another example in the realm of human sexuality, over 90% of both genders have sexual fantasies that create a unique brand of human psychology of its own. Yet the origin of this fascinating and universally prevalent human mental phenomenon is yet to be explained in a meaningful way. This study, The Interactions Between Instinct and Intellect and its Impact on Human Behavior, for the first time unveils all these and more of human mysteries and renders humans naked, so to speak.

About the Author:

Mark Abraham came to America as a student in 1973. Determined to identify the hidden causes of perpetual human conflicts, he acquired two degrees in international politics by 1982. Not finding his answers there, he devoted 25 years of his post-graduate studies to studying philosophy and psychology, seeking his answers there, but to no avail. He realized that the thinkers of the past being so fascinated by human intellect, had studied man almost exclusively from the standpoint of intellect alone. Yet it is human instincts that drive every aspect of human conduct more forcefully than intellect. This ignored mental element has created a missing link that is responsible for all persisting human enigmas. The little attention paid to instincts has been shallow, misleading and misapplied. Three instincts, aggression, sexuality and the maternal instinct, are universally known and accepted. Mark has identified 14 more instincts each of which drives its own brand of behavior. His findings not only identify the causes of human conflict, but a great deal more. Mark has learned that instincts are unchanging, unchangeable, stagnant and primitive. This is the opposite of intellect that is dynamic and grows in time. The contrasting natures of the progressing intellect and stagnant instincts have resulted in a growing imbalance in the mind that continues to escape attention, despite its profound implications in our lives. From this stance, all human affairs are divided into two distinct categories, behavior and achievement. Our instincts drive our conduct, while our intellect achieves our goals. This mental imparity finds reflection in our uneven progress in the realms of behavior as compared to the realms of achievement. In that, many thousands of years ago humans lied, cheated, stole, killed and fought wars, as they do today, each resulting form the unchanging function of a different instinct. However, at one time, man traveled on foot, and now we can land on the moon. The profundity of this growing imbalance cannot be exaggerated. Most importantly, Mark has discovered that the primitive instinct is a drag on humans' growing intellect and impairs a good portion of all humans' intelligence. Our blinding instincts blur our reasoning faculty and distort our decision-making.
