Emotion regulation plays a key role in mental health and psychopathology. Therefore, it seems important to develop effective forms of emotion regulation. Implementation intentions are if-then plans that help people attain their self-regulatory goals. Perspective-taking and response-focused implementation intentions have been shown to reduce feelings of unpleasantness and arousal, respectively, in response to briefly presented disgusting pictures. The present study addressed the open research questions whether forming these types of implementation intentions is effective in regulating affect during prolonged presentation of disgusting pictures, and whether it is associated with changes in physiological arousal. Eighty-one participants viewed disgusting, neutral, and pleasant pictures of 6 s duration under four instructions: the goal intention to not get disgusted, this goal intention furnished with a perspective-taking or a response-focused implementation intention, and no emotion regulation ...
It is a commonplace in the history of ideas that one of the few medieval philosophical contributions preserved in modern philosophical thought is the idea that mental phenomena are distinguished from physical phenomena by their intentionality: their intrinsic directedness toward some object. Nevertheless, medieval philosophers routinely described ordinary physical phenomena, such as reflections in mirrors or sounds in the air, as exhibiting intentionality, while they described what modern philosophers would take to be typically mental phenomena, such as sensation and imagination, as ordinary physical processes. Still, medieval philosophers would regard all acts of cognition as characterized by intentionality, on account of which all these acts are some sort of representations of their intended objects. The essays in this volume explore the intricacies and varieties of the conceptual relationships among intentionality, cognition, and mental representation as conceived by some of the greatest medieval
In this study we examined whether antisocial boys show evidence of a reduced interpersonal interpretation of events (intentionality) specifically in story stem responses to social challenges that provoke fear and distress responses. Two conflict and two distress stems were administered to 5 - 8 year old boys, 41 referred for disruptive behaviour problems and 25 non-referred boys. Raters blind to group membership scored dysregulated aggression and intentionality from transcripts of story responses. Referred boys had elevated aggression and lower intentionality scores across all stems compared to non-referred. However, there was a story type by group interaction; referred boys had substantially lowered intentionality in response to the distress stems, but not the conflict stems. Avoidant strategies that reduce threat related anxiety or fear also contribute to disruptive behaviour problems.. ...
Downloadable! We evaluate the results of a field experiment designed to measure the effect of prompts to form implementation intentions on realized behavioral outcomes. The outcome of interest is influenza vaccination receipt at free on-site clinics offered by a large firm to its employees. All employees eligible for study participation received reminder mailings that listed the times and locations of the relevant vaccination clinics. Mailings to employees randomly assigned to the treatment conditions additionally included a prompt to write down either (i) the date the employee planned to be vaccinated or (ii) the date and time the employee planned to be vaccinated. Vaccination rates increased when these implementation intentions prompts were included in the mailing. The vaccination rate among control condition employees was 33.1%. Employees who received the prompt to write down just a date had a vaccination rate 1.5 percentage points higher than the control group, a difference that is not statistically
Research has consistently shown that people consider harmful side effects of an action more intentional than helpful side effects. This phenomenon is known as the side-effect effect (SEE), which refers to the influence of moral considerations in judgments of intentionality and other non-moral concepts. There is an ongoing debate about how to explain this asymmetric pattern of judgment and the psychological factors involved in it. It has been posited that affective reactions to agents that bring about harmful side-effects could bias intentionality attributions in these cases, explaining the asymmetric pattern of intentionality judgments that we observe in the SEE. We call this the affective bias hypothesis (ABH). Evidence for the ABH is mixed, with some findings suggesting a role for affective processes, while others suggesting that affective processes play no role in the SEE. A possible explanation for these apparently contradictory results points to affective processes involved in the SEE being
The proposed research will take the form of a randomised controlled trial conducted in accordance with CONSORT guidelines (http://www.consort-statement.org). Data will be collected online using Qualtrics. Participants will be required to answer all fields on Qualtrics, as a way of managing potential missing data.. Participants will be randomly allocated to one of three groups: (i) psychological self-help augmented with implementation intentions, (ii) standard psychological self-help or (iii) a no intervention waiting list control. Qualtrics will be used to randomly allocate participants to one of the three groups.. A sample size analysis has been conducted and calculated assuming two measures, three groups, an alpha of 0.05, a power of 0.8, and an effect size of 0.25; a total sample size of 120 participants would be needed (i.e. 40 per group). Allowing for an attrition rate of 20%, 144 participants would need to be recruited (i.e. 48 per group). Although participants will be randomised to ...

This account of collective intentions rejects the atomism of Searles account. Because a shared intention is the complex of attitudes of individuals and their interrelations, an individual cannot have a shared intention. As we have seen, on Searles account one can have a shared intention, even if one is a brain in a vat. On Bratmans view the intentions of individuals are interrelated and reflexive in a way that makes solipsistic we-intentions impossible.. Bratmans account of collective or shared intentions has been criticized in a variety of ways. Both Searle and Bratman attempt to avoid the specter of the collective mind. Searle places we-intentions in the mind of individuals. Bratman avoids positing a plural agent by trying to explain collective intentions in terms of individual attitudes with common contents that are distinctively social in the sense that solitary individuals could not have them. But how is it possible for me to have an intention with the form "we-intend" or with the form ...
Pre-cessation reduction is associated with quitting smoking. However, many smokers reduce the amount consumed but may not quit altogether. Using a representative sample of adult current daily smokers, this project explored future intentions of smokers regarding cigarette consumption. This information is important because it can provide a framework within which to plan tobacco cessation initiatives. A random digit dialing telephone survey was conducted of 889 Canadian current daily smokers, 18 years and older. The response rate was 65% (of households with a smoker in residence, 65% agreed to participate). Analyses focused on the 825 respondents who smoked at least 10 cigarettes per day at some point in their lives. As part of this survey, respondents were asked their future plans about their smoking (maintain, increase, reduce, quit). Of these 825 respondents, the majority of respondents had plans to change their cigarette use, with 55% planning to quit, 18.8% to reduce and 22.5% to maintain the amount

The Effects of Characteristics of User and System on the Perceived Cognition and the Continuous Use Intention of Fintech Fintech;Characteristics of User and System;Perceived Cognition;Continuous Use Intention; The purpose of this study is to investigate the factors that affect the perceived awareness and the intention of continuous use by FinTech users and system characteristics. Data collection was carried out by targeting and surveying 600 people living in Gwangju, and office workers using smartphones. As a result, first, self-efficacy, innovation, and fitness for Fin-Tech services were found to influence the degree of perceptual awareness and intent to use of Fin-tech service users. Second, the system characteristics have a positive effect on perceived awareness and intention of using FinTech service. Third, the hypothesis about the dangers in the user attributes and system properties were dismissed. It seems that the priority concern was regarding the leakage of personal information and security
Similarly, Venkatesh et al. (2003) reviewed eight user acceptance models and then developed the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology. Their research model proposes that Performance Expectancy (perceived usefulness), Effort Expectancy (perceived ease of use), Social Influence (subjective norm) and Facilitation Conditions (control beliefs) have an influence on actual use. All these determinants have been addressed in the Combined Model. Research aim. The aim of this research was threefold. The first objective was to examine the influence of Grade 10 to 12 (16-18 years) physical science teachers behavioural beliefs, normative beliefs and control beliefs on their attitudes, subjective norm and perceived behaviour control respectively. The second objective was to determine the impact of teachers attitudes, subjective norm and perceived behaviour control on their intention to use PhET in their classrooms. Finally, their actual usage was compared with their intention to use PhET. ...
All levels of analysis from action theory to moral philosophy, from moral philosophy to practical reasoning, from practical reasoning to doctrinal considerations have in common an underlying teleological structure in terms of what goals are at stake, and how they are ordered. This teleological structure is isomorphic for all the above levels of analysis. This structure and this structure alone is the final arbitrator of legal doctrine, whether it is right or wrong, and whether it is correctly or incorrectly applied to a specific event. ... A structural teleological analysis of the law of tort will reveal that the goals of freedom of action and the prevention of physical harm to persons and property often come into conflict in the context of individual action, and consequently must be ordered against each other. ... Through human experience in the context of human action, we learn what we value and how we order values when they come into conflict such that we must choose one or the other. We then ...

But to attribute a god, and the supernatural, is the adult edition of the continuation of juvenile-derived intentionality, and projects beyond the basic orientation of child intention-based accounts. Religious belief is an emergent cultural artifice, a secondary function of the primary survival use of the genetic basis of intentionality. And religiosity remains an expression of the survival function. With no clear and present danger of being eaten by a lion on the savannah anymore, or being killed by a marauding neighbour tribe, that immediate existential threat is now no longer the primary motivation for this genetic survival mechanism. The gradual evolving into larger groups [into cities and regions and nation states], the advent of farming and animal husbandry removing the inherent dangers of earlier food gathering practices in the wild etc etc, has resulted in religiosity transposing those survival mechanisms to a different form of survivalism; that of the soul and the cheating of death ...

What are the most fundamental features of the world? Do minds stand outside the natural order? Is a unified picture of mental and physical reality possible? This book provides an account of the world as a unified system incorporating both the mental and the physical. The book echoes Lockes dictum that all things that exist are only particulars, and argues that properties are powerful qualities. It also spells out the implications of this view for philosophical conceptions of causation, intentionality, consciousness, and the mind-body problem. The book emphasizes the importance of non-conscious vegetative systems, which provide clear examples of intentionality in the form of representational use. The slide from representational use to consciousness involves a change in the material of use, but not the form of representation. The concluding chapter provides an argument for the view that an ontology of particular substances and properties leads ineluctably to monism: the bus we board with Locke takes

In data mining, intention mining or intent mining is the problem of determining a users intention from logs of his/her behavior in interaction with a computer system, such as in search engines, where there has been research on user intent or query intent prediction since 2002 (see Section 7.2.3 in [1]); and commercial intents expressed in social media posts [2]. A particular notion of intention mining has been introduced in the Ph.D. thesis of Dr. Ghazaleh Khodabandelou [3], [4]. This thesis presents a novel approach of process mining, called Map Miner Method (MMM). This method is designed to automate the construction of intentional process models from traces. MMM uses Hidden Markov Models to model the relationship between users activities and the strategies (i.e., the different ways to fulfill the intentions). The method also includes some specific algorithms developed to infer users intentions and construct intentional process model (Map), respectively. MMM models the intentions as an ...
Rationale The reasoned action approach (RAA) is a social cognitive model that outlines the determinants of intentional behavior. Primary and meta-analytic studies support RAA predictions for multiple health behaviors. However, including past behavior as a predictor in the RAA may attenuate model effects. Direct effects of past behavior on behavior may reflect non-conscious processes whereas indirect effects of past behavior through social cognitive variables may represent reasoned processes. Objective The present study extended a previous meta-analysis of the RAA by including effects of past behavior. The analysis also tested effects of candidate moderators of model predictions: behavioral frequency, behavior type, and measurement lag. Method We augmented a previous meta-analytic data set with correlations between model constructs and past behavior. We tested RAA models that included and excluded past behavior using meta-analytic structural equation modeling and compared the effects. Separate ...

Intentions are indeed very powerful if they are created in the right way. There are a few basic rules you will want to understand, otherwise your intentions may simply evaporate, or even backfire. By backfire, I mean they create just the opposite of what you wanted.
The ground of wise effort is our sincere intentionality toward presence, love and freedom. Yet our habit is to go into trance, and latch on to narrowed intentions of self-enhancement or defense. When this goes on for years, we feel disappointment in our lives, a sense of not being true to ourselves. Through guided reflections, we explore how--in spiritual practice and in relationships--we can connect with our deepest intention and live in a way that expresses our awakening heart and awareness ...

The study examined entrepreneurial intention of 668 undergraduates from two South West Nigerian Universities. The participants who indicated intention to 'start their own business' differ in entrepreneurial abilities by a higher mean score (x = 126.70) on Entrepreneurial Ability Scale (EAS) compared with those who indicated 'seek employment' (x = 121.42) and those who are not sure of their post-graduation activities (x = 123.56). One-way analysis of variance shows that no significant difference exist between 'seek employment' and those who are not sure about their future choice between 'seek employment' and 'start own business'. The study is an important indication of the role of and correlation between ability and intentions. It will be of practical benefit to conduct a follow-up/longitudinal study on future work preferences of the undergraduates who score high in entrepreneurial abilities scale as well as those who has entrepreneurial intention.

Social and ecological research and theory are used to elaborate and enrich two important sets of accounts of language origins. One is the interdependence and shared intentionality hypothesis (e.g., Tomasello, 2014a ) of the ways in which humans became cooperative and conforming in ways that other apes did not, eventually leading to language. A second set of accounts addresses the emergence of bipedalism and its connections to language and to many other anatomical, cognitive, and social features that are distinctive in humans. Particular attention is given to the carrying and caretaking of infants. Research and theory challenging common assumptions about the role of conformity in cooperation and conversation are reviewed and integrated into these accounts. Together these varying perspectives point toward a more dialogical, dynamic, and distributed understanding of social interactions and the values that motivate and constrain humans social and linguistic skills.
Constructing culture means constructing knowledge and making it operational for the benefit of sustained community life. As a cognitive process, knowledge-construction does not evolve in a vacuum but rather interacts with belief systems and worldview. Cultural knowledge is modulated by key factors such as time (linear versus non-linear), conceptions of reality (physical, imagined, virtual), identity, and intentionality. The critical investigation and comparison of cultures in space and time call for a revision of several concepts. These include utility (as the maxim of modern Euro-American society), prototype (as an allegedly unified concept of culture evolution), and replacement (as a generalizing signifier for the exchange of old items for new ones). The working of cultural memory is understood as the storage capacity of items of knowledge (relating to the past, present and future) according to parameters of experienced rather than absolute time. This study discusses a wide selection of the ...
This book provides a comprehensive account of the intentionality of perceptual experience. With special emphasis on vision Searle explains how the raw phenomenology of perception sets the content and the conditions of satisfaction of experience. The central question concerns the relation between the subjective conscious perceptual field and the objective perceptual field. Everything in the objective field is either perceived or can be perceived.
If we consider the prerequisites for human information I think we can identify at least 4 or 5 depending on how you count language. Lets count the symbols and rules of language as 2. Those rules operate within the laws of reason so these rules (Being, Identity, Non-contradiction, Excluded Middle, Causality) are pre-req 3. How are the symbols arranged in order to encode a message? It seems as though they must be freely chosen. Otherwise, how to account for the fact that I am typing this instead of that? There is no POSSIBLE explanation grounded in physical law for why I am typing this instead of that which suggests the question, well then, if physics isnt doing it then what is? Thats for another time. The last thing that is (at least) required is intentionality or purpose. A "scientist" might say "causality." What is it that causes these letters to appear "out here" in cyberspace? It seems that whatever it is that is freely arranging these English symbols in a (one hopes) logical fashion is ...

Spinozas main theory of intentionality is simple. What is the relationship between an idea and what it represents? Identity. An idea is, simply, identical with its ideatum. What saves this from being a complete idealism is that Spinoza has a two-attribute theory to go with it. Thus, an idea is considered under the attribute of thought, while its ideatum is, often, considered under the attribute of extension. Thus, the idea of my body is identical with my body, but when we talk of the "idea" we are conceiving it under the attribute of thought, and when we talk of "body" we are conceiving it under the attribute of extension.. But there is both a philosophical and a textual problem for this, and that is the problem of how false ideas are possible. Since presumably an idea is true if and only if what it represents exists, and an idea represents its ideatum, and its ideatum is identical with it, there are no false ideas, it seems. The philosophical problem is that there obviously are! The textual ...
This shifting experience opens onto the city through the full-height window walls that enclose the gallery on three sides, giving direct visual and aural access to the contiguous plaza of the Stravinsky Fountain (Nicki de Saint Phalle and Jean Tinguely, 1983). Sight lines created within and between the pods lead to views juxtaposing interior and exterior objects and events (Figure 6). The plazas sights and sounds animate the gallery. This condition echoes Tschumis familiar preoccupation with the juxtaposition of movement and event. Conceptual diagrams of key projects pasted onto the gallerys windows further highlight the gestures intentionality. Interior and exterior are mediated as the glass walls become transparent exhibit panels. This strategy clearly situates Tschumi and the Centre Pompidou itself in a shared temporality and intellectual heritage. The legacy of Cedric Price, in particular the Fun Palace project (1961-1964), is key to both. Prices work not only was crucial to the ...
Joy abounds in this world. You just have to intentionally look for it. It resides in people, in circumstances, in your neighbor, in service, and my favorite -- in an intimate relationship with Abba, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. One of my most treasured nuggets of wisdom that I live by is to look for joy intentionally and fiercely every day. Its there. I love to ask Holy Spirit to give me His eyes, because He is the author of joy. In fact, joy is at the very deepest, most formative core of who God made you to be. Joy is the very essence of Who God is and as such, we as His sons and daughters are made to thrive in joy. Just think about that for a minute. You and I were created to thrive in joy. That is absolutely exhilarating to me. It is so wonderful to rest in the promise and the inheritance of Gods joy. Every experience, every trial, every blessing, every grace given to us, every season is meant to bring us into the intentionality and the reality of Gods joy. Choosing to see the joy that is ...
Why are organisms built well for the things they do, i.e. why do they appear to be designed? Neo-Darwinism holds that biological design emerges from the progressive selection of "good function" genes. Genes operate in a broader context of physiology, however, and no comprehensive theory of biological design (or, by implication, adaptation or evolution) is possible without taking this context into account. Integrating physiology and Darwinism opens fundamental questions into the nature of hereditary memory, the origins of form and fitness, and the fundamental intentionality of the living world. In addition, Scott will give a noon talk in Science III, rm 214 titled "The airconditioned termite nest revisited: homeostasis and morphogenesis of an organ of extended physiology.". ...
And I wonder what is meant by gamma waves being "linked to consciousness…" How are they linked and what is meant by consciousness in this context, exactly? This is such a mine field, I almost typed "mindfield".. Someone once said consciousness is like the Trinity; if it is explained so that you understand it, it hasnt been explained correctly. In the case of neuroscience it seems consciousness means any state other than being asleep, comatose or dead. A pretty low standard, wouldnt you say? Consciousness is a slippery thing, but other definitions at least imply a level of intentionality. As psychologist George Miller said 40 years ago its a term that covers everything from phenomenalism to panpsychism: "Consciousness is a word worn smooth by a million tongues. Depending upon the figure of speech chosen it is a state of being, a substance, a process, a place, an epiphenomenon, an emergent aspect of matter, or the only true reality.". Now in the AFP story, Ricard says that meditating is ...

Architecture is now invisible. The interface is the architecture, suspended between silence and the virtual, an electronic inscription of our extended and blurred bodies, incised onto an event horizon of no escape. An epoch tossed into the black hole of the ether. The body long since forgotten dissolves into oblivion. A concentration of pure energy, an accumulation of sheer intentionality. Forever a gaze which is beyond identity, beyond body - that offers itself up as pure acceleration. Dilated organs without bodies perhaps, not bodies without organs. The distributed home bo(d)y. Architecture must inevitably hemorrhage in this mix. It must flow out in other directions. New spatial aggregates will require multiple escape routes. A single door for entering and exiting will no longer suffice. "Riemannian spaces...amorphous collection of pieces that are juxtaposed but not attached to each other." 18 Pure patchwork with an infinite porosity of structure, like a sponge. Formerly, architecture hoarded ...

We suggest that the time-varying, task-dependent and condition-dependent functional connectivity described here for the first time reflects a real-time contribution of PPC in initial programming of reach movements that influences M1.. Previous studies in nonhuman primates have suggested that PPC may be involved in converting spatial specification of target location into motor intentions (for review, see Cohen and Andersen, 2002). It has also been proposed (Cavada and Goldman-Rakic, 1989; Seltzer and Pandya, 1994; Johnson et al., 1996; Snyder et al., 1997) that, within PPC, nascent motor intentions may be specific to one class of movement (e.g., reaching) versus another (e.g., saccades), as also found for the new tcTMS phenomena uncovered here in humans. Moreover, parietal regions may over-represent the contralateral workspace relative to the ipsilateral workspace (Battaglia-Mayer et al., 2005). Damage to such representations in human patients might explain some directional motor aspects of ...
The Government seem to think that they make law by standing at the Dispatch Box. That is neither a democratic nor a justifiable view. Their intentions are not law. Their interpretations are not law. It is what is in the Bill and what goes on the statute book that is law. Unless they define conditions of service in the way that the amendment suggests, they cannot do other than leave ambiguous, at the very least, whether a court would hold that they are direct statutory obligations. We have explained this again and again, but all the Government do is say, "Well, that is not our intention". If it is not their intention, why do they not put it in the Bill? They do not put it in the Bill because they do not want to. That is why some of my more suspicious friends say, "If they do not want to, what are they up to?" What is the worth of these statements of intention if they will not shroud them with the majesty of law? ...
Yes I agree with the statement that good intentions are always appreciated even if they lead to bad outcomes. This is because things are not same for all. Even
