Transcript of Habits of the Mind

By : Eva Noelle Gay

of the Mind, 1-5
I think that creating, imaging, and innovating are the most important habits of the mind because if you don't think of something then what are you going to do? If you ever want to be different or even do something new and you don't have this trait, you won't go very far. For example,if you were an inventor and you weren't creative or you couldn't imagine anything, you wouldn't be able to think of a new innovation. If being and inventor you don't invent anything, you would lose your job. Even if you're not an inventor being someone creative and different is someone people like to be around in my opinion.
Habit of Mind #1 Creating,Imaging, and Innovating
"Those tools or strategies that are skillfully and mindfully used, by traits of successful people, when faced with problems, the conclusions to which are not easily fixed "(
ames Andrewson, Between 2000 to 2012
). In other words, it's the thought process that should be followed when doing something. Just as an add on I would like to say that this is my opinion on which Habits of the Mind are better than others. You might have a different opinion but please respect mine.
What are the Habits Of Mind?
You always need to remain calm at all times because acting impulsive can cause a lot of stress and problems. Usually people who are impulsive just act and don't think about the consequences. We need to learn how to control our actions and to understand the consequences of our actions or mistakes.
Habit of Mind #4 Managing Impulsivility
Habit of Mind #2 Persistence
Every successful person was persistent. If you're not persistent or you don't keep trying then nothing would have every been made. Once again I will use an inventor for my example. If an inventor wasn't persistent and failed on making the light bulb, for instance, the light bulb would have never been invented. Today, the light bulb influences us greatly because we use it every day.
Habit of Mind #3 Thinking Flexible
Thinking flexibly is a skill very much needed because you don't want to think " inside the box". I'm referring to something being unoriginal or dull. If you're anything like me, you want things to
and to be different, and better, than everyone else. Back on topic, thinking "outside the box" is an expression that means different or original. I think that's the best way to go.
Habit of Mind #5 Striving For Accuracy
Doing your best is something people should do all the time. It's very important to do your best so no one thinks any less of you. If you don't do your best, people might think it is all you can do and then they will think you're trying your hardest when your fullest potential isn't even at work. Always try your best and never anything less.
Habits of Mind #9 Remaining Open to Continuous Learning
Habits of Mind #8 Taking Responsible Risks
Habit of Mind #7 Finding Humor
Habits of Mind #6 Thinking and Communicating with Clarity and Precision
I think thinking and communicating with clarity and precision is quite important. If you put false information in a text, especially in non-fiction, you could be in a lot of trouble depending on the prevaricated statement. If in a biography it says that someone was wearing a yellow raincoat when he/she was actually wearing blue raincoat, wouldn't have a serious effect on the author. If in a biography you say that you painted Albrecht Durer's artwork, you would be in big trouble because that's plagiarism. I think we all know the consequences to that ( Thanks Mrs. Grotz ) .
Nobody like a sore loser. If you get something wrong or WAY off of the grid you need to be able to laugh at your self. If your unable to do this you will probably will have a miserable life always downing on yourself say that you can't do it. You just need to shake it off and be persistent with what your doing as one of the previous slides already declared. You just have to except that your not perfect even though you want to be.
I think that if you don't take responsible risks you won't go anywhere. If you want to do some types of things and you "play it safe" you might not get anywhere. For example, if you work in a candle factory and your afraid of fire you have a big dilemma if someone lights a candle or two. Being responsible is the most important part of the situation. If your afraid of fire you should just quit your job instead of having a panic attack and pouring water everywhere. That would cause an even bigger dilemma and a giant lawsuit.
Don't ever think on a "one way street ". The meaning of this is to do your work or research and never do, think, or research the topic ever again. You should be open to any new information on a topic instead of thinking "I don't really care. I already did the assignment and it doesn't matter what I learn now." Thus, the one way street of first-hand knowledge.
This habit is also known as meta cognition and is largely known in your mind. Meta cognition can be very helpful to you if your doing or going through a problem. It can be as simple as a math problem. Meta cognition might be able to save you from getting a problem wrong. If you do the problem in your head and you don't check it you might get it wrong. Personally, if I don't check my work I most likely will get the problem wrong. You might be the same.

Gathering Data Through All Senses
You shouldn't do an assignment and think that it was stupid. I personally do this ALL THE TIME but I people, including me, need to understand that it wasn't a waste of time because you must have, or might have, learned something that you didn't know. If you learn something new, you should respond with wonderment and awe as stated above.
Applying past knowledge to new situations will help you in doing basically anything. The only reason this one of my last habits of mind is because it comes easy to most everybody. My other habits took some to a lot of work so I figured that they would be harder and people would ignore them. In my opinion, the harder it is, the more informative it will be all together.
This habit might help you out or it might be no any assistance to you. Questioning the world around you have you to gave more knowledge then you all ready have.
Listening with understanding and empathy will help you're working in a group to some extent. If you're working in a group and your too passive in your point, nobody might pay attention to you but vise versa, if your too argumentative in your point, everybody else might be passive with there point because nobody wants to argue with you. People most likely want to get their point across so never think that your idea is the best and over-rule every one else's.
Gathering data through all senses is pretty basic. People have been gathering data through all senses since the pre-history ages without even knowing it. The cave drawings are my example A
Example A: The cave men didn't have all the knowledge that we acquire but they still knew how to see. They drew what they saw, sight.
Example B: They tasted the meat of animals that they killed to survive. Obviously, this is taste
Example C: After awhile, cave men learned what fire was and used it to food. They smelled the fire and cooked or cooking meat which was and still is smell.
Example D: Cave men used a certain type of material to write on the cave walls ( I don't know what ) . They had to feel the type of material in order to write with it. It would be impossible for them not to feel the material.
Example E: The animals that were sooner or later killed by the cave men because of their calls. Their mating, hunt, help and etc. calls gave them away.
By all of my examples, you must be able to understand that gathering data through all the senses HAS to be the oldest and easiest habit of mind.
People need to use their points and opinions when doing something because if you do what other people say, you're not going to gain more knowledge.
