Questions related to Egocentrism
I am considering a hypo-egoic mindset (e.g. Leary & Terry, 2012) to mediate the effects of mindfulness meditation on a cognitive outcome. Simply using a mindfulness scale seems insufficient to me, because a hypo-egoic mindset captures more than any existing conceptualization of mindfulness.
The conceptually most near scale that I´ve found is the Quiet Ego Scale (Wayment, Bauer & Sylaska, 2015), but it doesn´t really fit my purpose for several reasons. Particularly, the growth subscale is contrary to the present-focused quality of a hypo-egoic mindset.
I would be very grateful, if you have any suggestions :)
In my opinion, our culture is subject to domination of an excessive ego that wants to control everything. For fear of losing control, the egocentric believes that the solution to the problems is constant vigilance. This attitude is well illustrated by the proverb: ''Fear guarding the orchard''.In this way, problems gain an aspect of ego, and instead of accepting new values exaggerated ego is increasingly ready for predation.The key consequence of this is the strengthen a dominant rather than the emergence of a partner society. Is excessive ego a male disease?
Dear colleagues, in which articles can you see interesting points of view on the processes of integration, cooperation in the Asia-Pacific region for the period 2012-2017? Thank you in advance for your reply.
I've run across several papers (such as the TRIP assay in Akhtar et al, 2013) that describe positional effects on transcription from integrated reporters. However, it seems that while there's agreement that position effects expression, so far it's been impossible to fully account for the variation in terms of genomic features like reporter/enhancer distance, chromatin compaction, etc. I was wondering if that's a correct assessment for the state of the field, or if more recent models have accounted for most/all of positional effects as some defined function of site characteristics?
can someone recommend publications concerning that issue ?
Is proprioception involved in shaping the egocentric reference direction within spatial perception or does the reference direction solely depend on the field of view ?
