In podcast 7, we explore how we absorb new information and the different ways that we can respond to that information. We will discuss three basic cognitive levels, Instinctual, Intentional, and Integral, and how the perspectives that arise in each of these levels can affect what we see and think about new information.
Both Thomas May and I wanted to interview our mother, Mary May, M.A. as she has been a major source of metacognitive concepts for us and has provided the foundation that we have continued to rub up against as we have grown into practicing adults. Its these ideas that she has published with Jim November, Ph.D. that have influenced both Tom and me the most.
We wanted to share these basic concepts so that we can expand our discussions in the coming podcasts to talk deeper about the Art of Dynamic Competence. Thomas May joins me to talk with Mary May to explore about how we look at the world and most importantly how we respond to what we see and hear, especially when that information doesn’t meet our expectations and runs counter to our maps of the way we think the world should be.
