After spending a day with people's brainwaves yesterday, I was about to wrap up for the evening and was overcome with the sense that it was time to put up another episode so I recorded another portion of one before going to bed.
The theme that emerged from book writing yesterday was that how we respond to danger (perceived and real), and WHO we turn to (including ourselves and others) in the midst of uncertainty and threat is one of the most powerful foundations for future behavior and how we process information. The level of self-regulating abilities in the people we have around us during times of danger, ambiguity and uncertainty are one of the most critical aspects of how accurately we predict, prepare for and respond to future situations. This is especially true when we are young, but affects us throughout our lives. Attachment (and our social behaviors) are about information processing: whether we distort, omit data, include erroneous information, or bias feelings over logic, or logic over emotions.
Danger - and how it is dealt with - is the central theme of attachment - and therefore human interaction.
The concept of how we regulate ourselves and with others, and how we seek to avoid discomfort was also part of my interview with Loretta Breuning a couple weeks ago, so this episode will present this interview.
Still in draft stages so hoping to make enough progress to post next week.
I am grateful to those who know how to calibrate and let us hear their voice during times of uncertainty.
