The subjectivity cannot be swallowed, but it is trusted and analyzed.

Updated: May 29, 2022

Previously denied, emphasizing subjectivity revolutionized psychology.

John B. Watson (1878-1985) and others, at the beginning of the 20th century, are behaviourists and psychologists. However, they forcibly excluded subjectivity from psychology.

Activism states, "The theoretical goal of psychology is to predict and control behaviour.

It doesn't matter if introspection can be interpreted in terms of consciousness. "

They denied activism eventually, but its influence seems to have persisted for a long time.

Throughout the 20th century, psychology was suspicious of any mention of introspection.

Dr Tomabechi wrote about Structuralism in his book.

"Activism" has only looked at the relationship between input and output.

And it is "structuralism" to take the statistics and see only the results that come out.

When you take action, if the result is beneficial, you will do it more often, and if the result is unfavourable, you will not do it. This idea is called "activism".

From "Dr Tomabechi's New Gospel Book" (written by Hideto Tomabechi)

The function of the mind cannot be explained simply by human subjectivity.

You can't swallow claims about subjective experiences, such as having an out-of-body experience and flying to the ceiling or meeting a grandmother who died in a dream.

But in a sense, even bizarre introspection like these needs to be trusted.

Unless the subject deliberately lied, those reports remain a psychological event that requires explanation.

The correct attitude towards a subject's subjective report is to consider raw data.

Those who claimed to have experienced an out-of-body experience felt as if they were pulled up to the ceiling.

Therefore, the science of consciousness cannot be established unless the person feels so can be clarified.

The science of new consciousness makes full use of purely subjective phenomena such as optical illusions, misunderstandings, delusions, or other products of imagination.

We can only distinguish between objective stimuli and subjective perceptions through such phenomena and explore brain relationships.

"As conscious scientists, we are not as happy as when we were able to discover visual stimuli that are subjectively visible or invisible, and auditory stimuli that are audible or inaudible. Because it is possible to classify the trials into unconscious trials and unconscious trials and identify the brain activity that separates them. "
