Transcript of Joseph's Cognitive Development Journey

Age: 10 months via Freud
I interviewed my mother and asked her about how I acted and things I often did as a baby. All she could simply say was, "Chew...". She told me that there was a point where I choked on gravel because I saw it and just HAD to see if I could eat it.
Age 4 years via Kohlberg
When I was 5 years old and did tae kwan doe, I was very set on winning everything and thought I deserved every award in the world. No matter how absurd. At a tournament, I challenged the winner of the sparring event (who was a 3rd grader) and lost horribly; yet I still yelled, "My trophy!!! My trophy!!!" I always wanted more...
Age 8 via Piaget
Age 10 via Freud
I interviewed my dad for this one because around this time he probably had the most influence over my life. "Joseph had to try everything he could from baseball to hockey. I guess he started to wonder who he was and wht he was good at through his hobbies and the frineds he made in the process... He even got his first crush! He was quite awkward about it..."
-My dad
Age 12 via Kohlberg
The point of this video is that when I was young, I believed all the stuf in spongebob was possible... As I matured I began to realize that it is logically impossible! My logical thinking began to kick into high gear.
Age 16 via Paiget
Even today I'm still figuring out more about myself and the world; but I at least have a foundation of knowledge of the world around and of who I am. I've found out I'm a very happy person 90% of the time, I love music, and I love dance! Those are just a few things I've come to realize about myself. I can't wait to find out more!
Age 6 years via Erikson
At this age, I'd always come home from school asking questions starting with "Why?" and "How?". Apparently I wanted his attention 24/7 and I wanted to find out things about the world around me for myself. I thought I was going to become the worlds smartest man on my own curiosity.
Age 13 via Freud
Joseph's Cognitive Development Journey
From birth through elementary school...
Oral stage of development via Freud: Birth-1 year
According to Freud, from birth to age 1 are defined as the "oral stage" due to an obsession and urge to put any and everything in one's mouth out of curiosity.
The mouth is a vital part of this part of life because it's used to taste and even "identify" things by babies.
Pre-Conventional Stage of Development via Kohlberg
Lawrence Kohlberg believed that in the early ages of life (Ages 2-5) children were mentally focused on how to avoid punishment and in their own self interest. This is also referred to as the "Me, Me, Me" stage.
Competence Stage of Development via Erikson
Erik Erikson had a theory that from ages 5-12 one begins to ask oneself, "What can I make of this world?"
There is more of a individualized sense awareness during this time.
Logical thinking and concepts such as space and time are grasped
Attention is a critcal factor in self confidence levels from here on
Concrete Operational Stage via Piaget
During this stage of life (years 7-11) Piaget theorizes that:
Although we can't process absract concepts like God, we do try to reason our way through everything "logically"
We even begin to use analogies
At age 8 I played basketball for a house league and this is a picture of the award banquet. I remember this specifically because I made my first analogy:
If the best players get gold medals and I got a gold medal; then I must be the best player.
I very soon learned that I'm terrible at basketball... At that age we begin to use logic but don't really get it.
Latency Stage of Developement via Freud
From ages 6 to the start of puberty, Freud believed that children begin to characterize themselves, find hobbies, and begin building relationships with people.
During this, the id remains relatively surpressed though begins to urface in later years in the stage
Puberty strikes!
Post Conventional Stage of Development via Kohlberg
Once puberty begins (about age 12), Kohlberg believed that the realization that individuals are seperate from society and that they have their own perspectives.
We also develop an understanding of abstract reasoning concepts
Our logical thinking improves
Genital Stage of Development via Freud
Freud believed that once puberty begins, almost every thought and action humans make have a sexual subconscious meaning.
During this stage, the ego becomes fully aware of the id
Logic, reasoning, and morals all begin to piece together
The id begins to surface as you age. By the time I started puberty in middle school, I began to notice underlying dirty jokes and meanings in anything, even shows meant for kids like spongebob, that I didn't notice or understand when I was 6.
Formal Operational Stage of Development via Piaget
Piaget theorized that from age 11 til death abstract thinking, moral development, and metacognition (learning to think about thoughts) become evergoing and everchanging features of our mind. We also, eventually, come to realize who we are as a person and become confident in that.
