Behavior pattern definition, a recurrent way of acting by an individual or group toward a given object or in a given situation. See more.
Most usually the roles that one enacts are sex-linked. The term role is used to indicate that the behavior patterns exhibited are learned or acted as if according to some sort of social script (Gagnon and Simon 1973). Men and mens roles are typically associated with strength and dangerous occupations while woman and womens roles are more often associated with child rearing and nurturing pursuits. But even so, these distinctions are increasingly being blurred. What was seen as a mans job at one time came to be seen as a womans job and now anyones job today (e.g., telephone operator). Since these aspects of life are seen to vary in different cultures and to be changing at different rates the society and learning-bound nature of culture is acknowledged. Many of the cultural and social differences in behavior patterns associated with the two genders, man and woman, have came to be accepted and recognized as societal constructs -notions or abstractions which carry with them certain expectations ...

Unbalanced mental states (with no physical findings) like ADHD, anxiety, OCD, Bipolar disorder and autism for example, are the result of unbalanced personal numbers. Certain feelings and behaviour patterns exist in our personal numbers. Personal numbers are found in our names, birth dates, personal year numbers, personal period numbers, personal month numbers etc.
Escalation of commitment, let me count the ways Escalation of commitment is a normal human behavior in which a group faces a pattern of unsatisfactory outcomes from a past decision or investment but nevertheless continues on rather than altering course.. Doesnt this clinical definition sound strikingly similar to the observed behavior pattern over the course of programmatic history? For example, programmatic spend went from practically zero in 2008 to an estimated $70 billion in 2018. If you draw a straight line between $0 and $70 billion over the last 10 years, the total comes to $350 billion. Thats a lot of escalated commitment after having been presented with a mountain of unsatisfactory outcomes. Let me count the ways.. I peg the escalating starting point to 2008 when Yahoo acquired Right Media for $680 million, sparking a hype cycle even though "[Right Media] was the most duct-taped system youve ever seen" (Disclosure: I used to manage a large Right Media-Yahoo team in Europe and saw the ...

Certainly far more intelligence -- than any other invertebrate. They can open jars, and squeeze their entire bodies through a hole no larger than…
Illustration Friday really challenged me this week with the topic Deja-vu. I had to think of how to illustrate a feeling that is by nature vague. I think for me deja-vu has to do with behavior patterns, and the feelings of familiarity that they bring. I did some reading about Deja-vu and I learned that people with epilepsy sometimes get a strong sense of Deja-vu right before a seizure ...
The comings and goings, missteps and wisdom of famous people can sometimes provide useful lessons to us. Sometimes their example provides positive behavior patterns that we can learn from and profitably imitate. And, of course, we can also learn from their mistakes.
Some contemporary discourse about so-called mental illness arguably simplifies this complex physiological, psychological, sociological, spiritual and perhaps evolutionary issue. Undoubtedly, individuals suffer who find themselves significantly different from the cultural norms in which they live. And sometimes this suffering escalates or develops into behavior patterns that their society deems deviant, in the negative sense, and…

Character can be defined as self-aware knowledge that helps the individual to set goals, values and ethical principles (Cloninger, 2004). This meta-cognitive dimension of human personality involves Theory of Mind, and is positively related to measures of well-being, mental health, and constructive behavior patterns. Research from at least three different fields, cultural (Shweder, Much, Mahapatra & Park, 1997), personality (Cloninger, 2004), and social psychology (Abele & Wojcizke, 2007) suggest that character can be organized along three broad principles: agency, which is related to the autonomy and the fulfillment and enhancement of the self; communion, which is related to engagement in the protection and relations to others such as families, companies or nations; and spirituality, which is related to the human ability to transcend the self and find and interconnection with all life and appreciation of the whole world around us (Haidt, 2006; Cloninger, 2013).
The proportion of people with AIDS is increasing rapidly in Zimbabwe. Several strategies have been adopted to check the further spread of the disease. This paper discusses the behaviour patterns which may predispose to HIV infection and possible intervention strategies that may be taken in the City of Harare. Over a third (33,9 pc, n=1526) of the married respondents reported that they were living separately from their spouses. There was a high proportion (76.6 pc, n=564) of single respondents who admitted to engaging in premarital sex. Fifteen pc of total respondents were engaging in casual sex. The proportion of single respondents (31.2 pc) engaging in casual sex was higher than among the married (11,1 pc). More single respondents (10,9 pc) had been paid for sex than the married (4,1 pc) whilst the proportion that had been paid for sex was similar for the single (21,2 pc) and the married (22,9 pc). The median age for starting sex was 17 years (range = three to 26) for the single and 18 years (range =
First one is the body of cultural traditions that makes you to differentiate a society from others. When people speak German, Japanese or Italian, then they are referred as the language, beliefs and traditions shared by each set of people that is different from others. Second one is the subculture in which different societies from different parts of the world preserve their original culture. Such people are the part of a subculture in the new society. For example, subcultures in United States consist of ethnic groups like Mexican Americans, African Americans and Vietnamese Americans. The members of each subculture share a common language, identity, food tradition and other traits through a common ancestral upbringing. The third level is the cultural universals that consist of behavior patterns shared by the humanity as a whole. Some examples of such behavior patterns are communicating with a verbal language, use of age and gender to classify people, differentiation based on marriage and ...

There are significant temporal dependencies between online behaviour and occurring real world activities. Particularly in text modelling, these are usually ignored or at best dealt with in overly simplistic ways such as assuming smooth variation with time. Social media is a new data source which present collective behaviour much more richly than traditional sources, such as newswire, with a finer time granularity, timely reflection of activities, multiple modalities and large volume. Analysing temporal patterns in this data is important in order to discover newly emerging topics, periodic occurrences and correlation or causality to real world indicators or human behaviour patterns. With these opportunities come many challenges, both engineering (i.e.\ data volume and processing) and algorithmic, namely the inconsistency and short length of the messages and the presence of large amounts of irrelevant messages to our goal. Equipped with a better understanding of the dynamics of the complex ...
Gestation is an interactive responsive environment. It contains two integrated spaces. One gallery contains a surround sound field, generated in real time using video sensing equipment (visible to visitors only as a small security video camera in the middle of the roof) that maps the behaviour and movement patterns of the visitors on to real-time audio algorithms providing a tight gestural relationship with their movement and behaviour patterns. No pre-recorded material is being used in the generation of the sounds, they are all generated algorithmically in realtime, creating evolving streams of sound ...

The presence of a five can bring changes in personal and universal cycles lasting 12 - 18 days, weeks, or months, along with opportunities to take many short trips. There are also lessons to be learned about balance and flexibility . . . one can be either too ridged or too flexible. Five is about maintaining a centeredness as everything else begins to accelerate. A positive five has the confidence and flexibility to accept the transitory nature of all things. A positive five also accepts that someday Mt. Everest will be nothing more than grains of sand on the beaches of an unnamed ocean. 2012 is about change. It is about recognizing your reactive behavior patterns, resolving abandonment issues, and making more conscious choices. The presence of the universal 5 brings opportunities for new beginnings regardless of the personal year. Use this universal energy to surf the currents of opportunity that will appear throughout your personal year. 2012 will bring big changes and many opportunities for ...
Bad habits arent just a problem in real life--our negative behavior patterns often arise in the virtual world as well. Here are some of the unfortunate
Maybe Im particularly prone, but to me its amazing how subconscious we can be in our routines. When I successfully gave up smoking fourteen years ago, it was only the last in a line of attempts, dozens-long. Each attempt on that line was a step towards the outcome I eventually crafted. I got discouraged after the early attempts were unsuccessful until I realised this.. Those first few attempts I tried to "break the bad habit". But fighting with myself just lead to stress. Whats a common way to unwind when youre stressed? Settle into something familiar like (for me) rolling a durry. Boom, smoking again. Thats what some of my early attempts looked like. Id literally be sitting there smoking before I remembered how I was supposed to be quitting.. To an extent, life is about habits. They keep us alive and well (think of the many habits we use while driving, or the habits of hygiene). Its useful to do things habitually. The problem is when we discover the need to change a behaviour pattern. ...

The overall aim of the thesis was to add some pieces to the etiological puzzle of LCPD with special focus on vascular origin and hyperactivity. Furthermore we wanted to evaluate some consequences of LCPD in adulthood.. Swedish registry data were used to identify a cohort of patients with the diagnosis of LCPD. This cohort was compared with a general population- based cohort without LCPD to assess the relative risk of cardiovascular diseases, blood or coagulation defects, injury, ADHD, depression and mortality.. In a clinical study we assessed health-related quality of life (EQ-5D-3L), physical activity level (IPAQ) and screened for ADHD (ASRSv1.1) in 116 patients with a history of LCPD who were diagnosed or treated in Uppsala University Hospital between 1978 and 1995.. The results confirmed our hypothesis: Patients with a history of LCPD had a 1.7-fold higher risk of cardiovascular diseases, and a 1.4-fold higher risk for blood or coagulation defects compared with gender- and age-matched ...
The purpose of this study was to assess self-reported sunburn, sun behaviors, and sun exposure among the same children during periadolescence. We found that students, regardless of skin color or gender, reported more time spent in the sun to get a tan and increased positive tanning attitudes by our follow-up evaluation; however, we did not observe a commensurate increase in reported burning or tanning. Overall, we found that rates of sunburn, which exceeded 50% at around age 11, remained high at our follow-up evaluation 3 years later.. This study describes a period of notable changes in tan-promoting attitudes and practices, whereby half of children using sunscreen routinely in 2004 no longer did so in 2007. In fact, only 25% of children in this population-based sample were still using sunscreen routinely in 2007. We did not observe an increase in sunburning rates during these 3 years and this may be explained by the fact that students reported number of hours of sun exposure did not increase. ...

The Type A behavior pattern and the inhibited power motive have been implicated in the development of coronary heart disease (CHD). Since it is widely believed that enhanced cardiovascular responsivity may be one mechanism by which individuals develop CHD, the present study examined the relationship of Type A behavior and the inhibited power motive to different patterns of cardiovascular response during two behavioral tasks. Forty-one (24 Type As, 17 Type Bs) male undergraduates underwent the Type A structured interview (SI) and the Thematic Apperception Test (TAT) while a broad range of cardiovascular functions were simultaneously recorded. Different patterns of cardiovascular response were observed during the SI and TAT, and Type As showed a greater tendency than Type Bs to exhibit increased heart rate (HR), systolic blood pressure (SBP), and forearm blood flow (FBF) during the SI and the preparatory phase (but not the story-telling phase) of the TAT. The inhibited power motive was not ...
and smoking) are occurring in alarmingly increasing rates among children and young adults. These findings, in combination with evidence of the presence of fatty streaks (often the precursors to atherosclerotic lesions) in the arteries of children as young as three, led researchers to believe that the time to begin preventing cardiovascular disease is in childhood. To address this need, the American Heart Association (AHA) published guidelines for the prevention of cardiovascular disease in children and young adults. Researchers have learned that behavior patterns adopted in childhood are carried into adulthood. Habits such as diet, level of physical activity, and smoking have a large impact on the number of cardiovascular risk factors. Stopping them before they start is the best way to begin. ...
Less obvious, and more interesting, is that sometimes we may fail to recognize the total behavior pattern... we not only fail to replace a behavior, but we inadvertently reinforce over-excited, anxious behaviors as well. Lets say I am having trouble with my pig; he nips, jumps and whines to try and get food from me. I realize that I have accidentally been rewarding these unwanted behaviors and so I decide to correct the problem. Ive gone online, read that the solution is to make Wilbur do a trick, and now Ive taught Wilbur to spin for his dinner. Dinnertime comes around and Wilbur is whining, nosing at my legs, and maybe even jumping on me while Im preparing his meal. I ask him to spin, he does it quickly and so I think that I can give him his meal. The problem is that the trick hasnt taught Wilbur how to behave; to him, the way to get a meal now simply has several steps and goes like this- 1)-whine frantically, 2)- jump up, and 3)- spin! He has simply tacked on spin to the end of his ...
The drugs most adults, and many children, use in our society are alcohol, tobacco, sugar and caffeine. They have all been proven to be addictive (there is still some debate about whether sugar is addictive, but it seems likely that it is), to be able to cause deadly overdoses (in sugar this only applies to a percentage of people, mostly those with diabetes, usually caused by sugar consumption), and to lead to a number of serious diseases and death in a large percentage of long term users. In addition, both long and short term behavior patterns may be changed through the use of these substances, generally in negative ways. Alcohol often precipitates violence, caffeine and nicotine have a tendency to increase irritability, stress levels and anxiety. In spite of how dangerous, damaging to relationships and society-at-large these drugs are when misused, I do not feel they should be illegal simply because human beings have a right to decide what they want to put in their bodies, and it is not my ...
The umbrella term for impairments, activity limitations, and participation restrictions. It denotes the negative aspects of the interaction between an individual (with a health condition) and that individuals contextual factors (environmental and personal factors). Personal factors are the particular background of an individuals life and living, and comprise features of the individual that are not part of a health condition or health states, such as: gender, race, age, fitness, lifestyle, habits, coping styles, social background, education, profession, past and current experience, overall behaviour pattern, character style, individual psychological assets and other characteristics, all or any of which may play a role in disability in any level. Environmental factors are external factors that make up the physical, social and attitudinal environment in which people live and conduct their lives. Disability can be described at three levels: body (impairment of body function or structure), person ...
In perimeter protection applications, industrial estates or public buildings increasingly tend to be designed more openly. We can observe a trend toward flexible monitoring methods of building exteriors, facades, windows, entries and exits and away from static facilities such as fences. In animated scenes, such as on tracks or in visitor halls, it may be a well-known scene but it is permanently masked by moving objects. Here it is necessary to either reliably detect a change in the background (objects left behind, objects that are removed without authorization) or to extrapolate key statistic data or behavior patterns from the mass of objects moving in the foreground (density of people, people counts, peoples behavior). Pan-Tilt-Zoom cameras Normally, video sensory analysis for Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ) cameras is used to support the operator with automatic camera control rather than to trigger alarms.

If you find yourself in this type of behavior pattern there are some steps to take that can help. Detaching yourself from past thoughts and behaviors helps tremendously. Sometimes we become attached to certain "comfortable" patterns in life not fully realizing what is happening, we just see and feel the undesired results. Its time to live outside the box of your personal comfort zone. Cultivate yourself by changing the way you live your life. Take a break from relationships and spend some time with yourself to explore things that help create and mold you as an individual. God has given us a beautiful Earth to live out our lives and enjoy. Find activities that you feel would be completely different from what you would normally do such as going to a museum instead of the movies. Go to a symphony concert instead of a rock concert or join a small group through church. Adopt a pet, take up canvas painting, join a kayaking club or go on a hike instead of the mall. Travel, see the world and find ...

Microsoft Research and Microsoft adCenter announced Eugene as one of the recipients of the Beyond Search Semantic Computing and Internet Economics 2007 RFP awards. The research (in collaboration with Prof. Charles Clarke of the University of Waterloo) aims to develop techniques to automatically identify the user queries and behavior patterns associated with commercial intent. Specifically, the researchers will develop a taxonomy of commercial intent to classify user information needs along dimensions such as immediate vs. near-term purchase, or purchase vs. research. The researchers will also develop techniques to automatically infer the information needs from user actions to classify the search session in the corresponding commercial intent category. The general intent inference algorithms developed will also be applicable to other (non-commercial) intent detection tasks, such as detection of scholarly research intent, health information seeking, and market research.

While neurotransmitters are believed to be implicit in bipolar disorder, it isnt entirely clear, so far as I am aware, just how they figure affect the development of the problem, only that they are involved. Your suggestion that the medications may have caused a false negative test result makes perfect sense, since some of the medications youre taking do help facilitate the normal functioning of neurotransmitters. This is unfortunate, because it throws the diagnosis somewhat into question. However, bipolar disorder is usually diagnosed on the basis of history and physical as well as symptoms and typical behavior patterns, so the test doesnt really seem very useful for someone whos already on effective medication ...
There is a road block Ive been trying to get through/over/under/around for years now. I experience what I call "behavioral depression" bouts. I KNOW these episodes are based on old behavior patterns, and are not true depression, because I used to suffer from severe/chronic depression. These episodes are different. They are very "old ego" based. Trying to get rid of that pesky ego and be "present" is my current main focus for personal improvement. (I listen to Oprahs Soul Series on XM and have read Eckhart Tolles books and a host of others as well.). I believe this has a lot to do with how I communicate with my world, specifically my spouse in asking for what I want. I have never been comfortable doing that. My spouse, for the record, is totally there for me at all times, but I have trouble making requests of him. It goes way, way deeper than that, but I dont have the time/space to explain it all here.. Suffice it to say that as my spiritual growth grows, these episodes of "old ego" come much ...

Situation 1: A-0; B-0; C-0; D-0; E-0; F-0. Every behaviour pattern gets an assigned fitness score of 0. None of the patterns are favoured, which means every modules genes have the same chance of being passed on. In this case mutation is the only element that adds diversity to the new generation.. Situation 2: A-100; B-0; C-0; D-0; E-0; F-0. Pattern A gets the absolute highest fitness value. As a result, its genes will survive predominately. It is obvious that the new patterns will be quite similar with each other.. Situation 3: A-50; B-50; C-50; D-50; E-50; F-50. Every pattern gets the same fitness value, which is like Situation 1. Therefor every patterns genes get the same chance to survive. This situation is effectively identical to the first one.. This simulation proves that the criteria affects the evolution in the expected manner, and that favoured patterns have a higher chance to survive. Furthermore, the mutation rate keeps the evolution alive.. 5.3 Brief summary. Both Golem Space 1 ...
In his book, Games People Play, Dr. Eric Berne described ego states as being "a system of feelings accompanied by a related set of behaviour patterns".

The first resemble ego states of parental figures; the second are autonomously directed towards the objective appraisal of reality and the third are ego states that remain from early childhood ...

The local population of killer whales might be starving to death. According to this Victoria Times-Colonist report, members of the three local pods of orcas are showing obvious signs of starvation. Salmon runs are down again this year, and orcas are desperately trying to find food. That desperation is forcing them in to unusual behaviour patterns. "A small group from L Pod have been traveling with J Pod all summer long, and twice J Pod has split into two completely separate groups, out of acoustic range from each other," said a researcher. "Its an indication that they are searching high and low and in every nook and cranny for fish ...
Hi Tammy...I would agree with you for the most part. The older I get, the easier it is for me to let it go. I mostly dont care, but every so often I find myself getting caught in it again and I find that part fascinating from psychological perspective. Old behavior patterns are hard to break since they tie into so many aspects of our personal journeys. You are right...people do get angry sometimes when they see you are following your dreams or unfortunately, sometimes even if you are happy in life. I like the dreaminess (is that a word?) of this too...I used to love the old lava lamps too. If you fall in I will help you float to safety! :). ReplyDelete ...
