Questions related to Everyday Life
Questions that ask whether or not some statement is true are called yes–no questions (or polar questions, or general questions), since they can in principle be answered by a "yes" or "no" (or similar words or expressions in other languages).
It could be interesting, that in everyday life, usually or statistically or empirically what is the more common answer to a yes/no question.
I am a psychology PhD student. I would like to map the psychological literature on 'everyday life peacebuilding' for my research. 'Everyday life peacebuilding' is emerging as a formal field of study within the multidisciplinary field of peace and conflict research; it is more typically addressed by sociologists, ethnographers and political scientists than psychologists. I have not seen many references to scoping reviews outside of health or policy. My questions are: Am I making my literature review process too complex, for my discipline, by adopting a systematic protocol? Or paradoxically, will the systematic protocol offer me more guidance in this complex multidisciplinary field?
Thank you in advance for your insights.
The COVID 19 lockdown has changed how we do things in our everyday life. This is true also in regards to higher education. For more than two semesters now, students are taking an online class. This can be a challenge to peer cooperation or it can help to build new ways of cooperation among students.
Most of research are giving some contrdict statement that research has no implication in everyday life. So, don't need to conduct research. whats is your opinion.
We have developed our social skills when “outdoor social relations” were part of our everyday life. What can parents do for their kids to develop her/his social skills when they are locked in their homes because of pandemic virus? Will setting up little group performances help coordinating with other people and closely experiencing "living in society"?
When it comes to Ambivalence, it can be a symptom of mental illness but it is also something we experience in our everyday life ( I certainly do, and my wife hates it) . Where would you draw the line between normal ambivalence and pathological ambivalence? Also what is the role of attitudes (if any) towards the object? I wrote an article about attitudes a while ago. The article can be found here:
The word is free..
I found this forum while looking for good sociologic theories on identity, so I hope its okay to ask this question here. If it isnt just remove me :D
Do you know any good books on the balance of ones on identity or rather the multitude of ones identities? How we balance those identities. How one can be authentic to oneselfs "true" identity maybe or if such a things as a true identity really exists. I am especially interested in our everyday lifes here, problems such as trying to become one specific person, as can be seen in the movies, come to mind. The conflict of feeling "kind of fake" when acting different in all kinds of settings.
I kind of wonder if we often get lost in our search for our one true identity. I feel like we are told that a strong person always has the same identity. But is that really true?
I usually have bad luck with my questions at RG. Either they are too under-estimating for others or too complex, that's my guess. Just now I was studying John Dewey and his educational theory. I have also written critical essays about Dewey, but there was one thought (and there may be others that are useful) that I found particularly appealing: It is always positive to have a new and good experience. This is what Dewey says in "Art as Experience". I'm simply passing on the message here: Who has a suggestion that you can recommend?
Thousands of people pass through turnstiles every day at the entrance to railway stations. Use the flow of people as an innovative energy generator. Built into the floor beneath the turnstiles are piezoelectric cells that produce electricity from the pressure and vibration they receive when people step on them.
I'm doing a research on public spaces which I'm trying to understand the way of life in cities in past days, their presence in public spaces, their uses of public spaces and different spaces they used and I'm wondering if there is a method to study this?
One is compelled to look in the mirror on certain occasions in the routines of everyday life. In the morning when we get up, or in the evening when we go to sleep, or in an undressed state after a shower or a bath. What goes through your mind then? Of course, this can also be something funny? Are we honest with ourselves when we meet our reflection? There are many questions and many answers.
Millennials see social media as a 'normal' process of everyday life. Is social media that engrained within society that the removal of it would essentially, for some, be the removal of 'reality'?
Jean Boudrillard identified simulacra as not being a 'copy of the real, but truth in its own right' or 'hyperreality' - Applying this to social media, we must surely be able to state that social media is a hyperreality, as it blurs the lines between reality and fiction by the content written upon it.
In many cosmological theories, astronomers try to explain the essence of the unlimitedness of the Universe. But how can this unlimitedness be presented and defined in the most concise and clear way possible?
What can be compared to the unlimitedness of the Universe? Or maybe the essence of the problem goes beyond the scientific definition of the concept of the unlimitedness of the Universe?
The problem may be the understanding of this unlimitedness of the Universe by man, because everything that surrounds man in everyday life on Earth is limited.
Do you agree with my opinion on this matter?
In view of the above, I am asking you the following question:
How is the unlimitedness of the Universe explained now?
I invite you to the discussion
As part of the ‘Gender and Schooling in Kazakhstan’ study, we intend to use a survey for Grade 7-8 (12-14 years) students in Kazakhstan to investigate how they understand and enact gender in their everyday life within and outside school. We will develop the survey following qualitative case studies of a small number of schools and analysis of Kazakhstani textbooks for contextual relevance. We would appreciate if you could direct us to a child/student friendly survey that has been tested and validated before.
I am looking for short educational (and preferably fun) videos 1 to 5 minutes in length that can motivate and teach people with intellectual disabilities everyday activities like vacuuming, brushing your teeth, washing up, washing windows, washing clothes, folding clothes, paying for groceries ...
Hi dear colleagues and researchers,
I conducted a qualitative fieldwork study to gain a phenomenological understanding of the everyday life experiences of 8 immigrant Afghan women who live in Auckland. That understanding was supposed to contribute to an exploration of the way they relate to their public life in the city through looking at different constructs and dimensions of place attachment. I, as the female researcher coming from a non-western country, also, explained my reflexivity and proportionality in relation to the participants and the (inter)subjective approach that I have in the research. So, in-depth semi-structured interviews, cognitive mapping, photo-elicitation, as well as participant observation were applied to collect the required data and have a collaborative and trustworthy relationship with the participants in different layers of interaction.
Now, in order to give more clarification in my methodology chapter, I need to explain my analytical approach. I am not sure 100% about the best compatible approach for analyzing the data in my study. Whether a thematic analysis or an interpretative phenomenological analysis or a discourse analysis?
I would highly appreciate your opinions and advises.
The wireless devices have become the integral part of our everyday life. These devices are being used for many purposes such as for Internet and Telecommunication. There are many effects of wireless devices on the human body, some of which generates heat on the human body, Is there any paper related to bioheat transfer from wireless devices?
What best solution will you proffer when one get fed up with life and everything in it ?
I am trying to understand if and how planners can help empower migrants by intervening on the built form. I am familiar with works by, for example, Jeffrey Hou and Fran Tonkiss. I wonder if someone wrote more specifically about how immigrants use a city's public spaces and what interventions might be done to facilitate self-empowerment. Thank you!
It is about measuring stress in everyday life https://www.1ka.si/a/140506?language=2 Stress could be one of the Indicator (just like crime etc.) that our societies are loosing a great amount of energy. This of course is crying for improvements ...
I'm doing research on quality of life in big cities (metropolitan areas, mostly) , and I need to find out about large old cities as well (to compare and find patterns). I need to read about what life was for an average citizen, the problems they faced (crime, mental illness, disease, personal interaction).
(Cities like Rome, Athens, Constantinopla, for example)
I have done a study of a group of women to see how they are related to their environment (in the city) through their everyday lives in the city and its public spaces. I am wondering if there is any specific categorization of everyday life which can be analysed in terms of people's interaction with place in the city.
We tend to bump with people who give up quickly or do things half way, regardless of age. It can be tiring to push them to move further. Right now, I am facing one. After spending money, time, effort and thinking, on a work related matter, that person is thinking of walking away. If you were in my shoes, what would you do?
I'm interested in connecting with others who may be examining how people organize their daily routines and habit patterns to create structure in their daily organization that help them lead meaningful and productive lives. I am particularly interested in understanding how people create effective time use patterns when they have historically been unsuccessful in doing do.
