Insights (What new insights or learnings did you gain in discussion/ activity?) i. Before reading the article/understanding the lesson, I thought that some explanations about the human behavior are not that reliable since there are thousands of people in the world with different behaviors. However, reading the article/understanding the lesson, I now think/realize that there are some human behaviors that are considered true to all persons based on the studies and researches of the psychologists. ii. Before reading the article/understanding the lesson, I thought that it is hard to understand the nature of the human person since every person is unique and has a unique behavior. However, reading the article/understanding the lesson, I now think/realize that it is possible for a person to understand himself since there are studies about human behavior. iii. Before reading the article/understanding the lesson, I thought that there is no possibility of understanding human behaviors since if a person cannot understand himself, how could he even understand other people? However, reading the article/understanding the lesson, I now think/realize that there is a possibility of understanding a person but then there are some barriers that prevents this to happen and it depends on the person if how much he can open up to other people, so it’s hard to fully understand a person’s behavior. 3. Questions (What questions would you want answers for? Or vague areas you want more explanations about? i. Are the studies about human behavior accurate and applicable to all human beings? ii. Is there a possibility to fully understand a person’s behavior with scientific proofs? iii. Is the human behavior connected with the biological behavior of the person?
