Impulsiveness and Deliberation
At the outset let us understand the meaning within the context of individual’s mind and try to evaluate the impact and its repercussions. Prior to we ponder on the subject we must objectively investigate what goes on in the mind and how it affects people. In psychology impulsive or impulsiveness is a tendency to act on a whim, displaying behavior characterized by little or no forethought, reflection, or consideration of the consequences. The meaning alone is the letter of law an exoteric concept which is necessary. However, to understand and apply as a tool in daily life needs a broader aspect, conceptual reality, and ethical viability.
The impulsiveness in a normal person is not related to Attention deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. The spur of the moment reaction to his liking or disliking could be due to many causes and factors. The most common factor is a person can be a short temper, depressed or becomes the victim of some calamity. But when this behavior becomes persistent and on regular basis then we have found ways and means to handle it sensibly. This exoteric meaning has its own impact, but the root cause must be established to eliminate for the benefit of the impacted or affected person. To achieve the desired results, we must dive deep in reality to comprehend its esoteric meaning too.
An impulsive person is an egocentric which drives him to dwell on “I, me and myself” concept which affected him head over heel in most of his dealings. Since these are mental constructs hence it needs to be delineated to understand the true reality which is beneficial in all aspects.
Esoteric meaning of impulse is the interpretation of the word, the meaning of subject within its context. We cannot literally confine the hidden meaning of impulse and deduce the meaning to justify our objective. One must realize that delicate point that has may nuances and many shades of grey areas. Thus, it becomes necessary to balance the causes and effects and its impacts which becomes the by-product of the impulse between inner and outer realities. The human behavior is subjectively and objectively guided by impulse alone making some headway in the direction of deliberation.
Now we must understand deliberation and how it affects human mind. Adam Bulley and Daniel L Schacter says “humans make choices according to habits, gut intuitions, and rules of thumb, but the quirks of decision-making only make sense considering our preoccupation with pondering consequences. This is the point where deliberation acts in an objective way making our mind to get realigned to the existing situation and other influences. (Adam Bulley is a post doctoral associate in Harvard and Daniel Schacter is a psychologist in Harvard university.)
Deliberation is a process to weigh options prior to arriving at a definite conclusion. Here, the factors which influence it are both precise and expansive. A viable solution can be a win-win situation.
It becomes obvious now that the impulsiveness and deliberation are tools to control the self to be effective and result oriented. Failure to over-power oneself will destroys materially and spiritually. Every individual knows his or her abilities and shortcomings and acts accordingly. If the outer influences are more powerful than their inner self, then life becomes hell in one form or the other. At this crucial stage, matured family members and friends or mentors play a constructive and dominating role in pacifying a volatile situation. Otherwise, situation deteriorates, and relations become soar.
