Individual Differences: Learning and Memory

PSYC3500-Learning and Cognition

Learning and Cognition Project

We all are different in a variety of ways; including, our personality and learning styles. Many of us enjoy living a carefree life with no regard for consequences; while others, prefer to be more careful and reserved. There are five personality traits—extraversion, openness to new experience, emotional stability, impulsiveness, and conscientiousness. Regardless of how we choose to live, or the difference in our personality trait, there are mental challenges that may plague our personality that can hinder our ability to learn. These mental challenges, or psychological disorders, affect us... View More »

This is important because, through conducted research, it will show that there are differences in individual personality and the correlation between personality and learning.

The subtopics will define extraversion, emotional stability, openness to new experience, impulsiveness, and conscientiousness and how it affects learning. Since extraversion and anxiety have been properly studied, some history will be given on the two personality types. “The readers may be able to distinguish how psychopathologies affect learning, the differences between the different personality types, the history behind the personality, and how those each personality affects learning from the research that has been conducted.

The psychopathologies that I will discuss are anxiety, PTSD, and schizophrenia. Studies were conducted on anxiety. “Many studies show that clinical and manifest (test) anxiety variously affect the course of learning many types of tasks.” (Huff, 1964, p. 6). Yet, “no studies were found which investigated exclusively the learning of paranoid schizophrenics.” (Huff, 1964, p. 1). Consequently, I will just touch base on this psychopathology.

The reader and I will be able to conclude if there is a correlation between individual differences in learning and personality. Nonetheless, it is paramount that trusted sources are used when conducting this research. My resources will come from the Capella University online library. The articles obtained from the library, will provide insight to my research question.

The following terms will be used to co ...

    Introduction "One of the most remarkable aspects of an animal's behavior is the ability to modify that behavior by learning, an ability that reaches its highest form in human beings. For me, learning and memory have proven to be endlessly fascinating mental processes because they address one of the fundamental features of human activity: our ability to acquire new ideas from experience and to retain these ideas in memory. In fact, most of the ideas we have about the world and our civilization we have learned so that we are who we are in good measure because of what w

    Alternative Memory

    Multi-Store Model of Memory Memory is to do with how we encode, store and retrieve information. The multi-store model of memory was suggested by Atkinson and Shiffrin who said that we have 3 different memory stores: sensory memory, short term memory and long term memory and formed a linear model to demonstrate the process. A key aspect of the model is that the memory stores have different characteristics which include capacity, duration and encoding. Capacity refers to how much information that can be stored, duration is how long the memory lasts and encoding is h

    Cognitive psychology is an area of psychology that studies mental processes of how people think, perceive, remember and learn. Ulric Neisser (1967) was the first to coin the term “cognitive psychology” and stated it concerns all the processes in which a “sensory input is transformed, reduced, elaborated, stored, recovered and used”. (Neisser, 1967, p.4). However, cognition is not observable as it concerns the internal mental processes of the brain. Memory is an internal process carried out by the human brain that allows one to obtain, retain and recall any experiences o

    Atkinson & Shiffrin (1968) and Badderly & Hitch (1974) produced two well known theories of memory. This discussion will explain the two theories supplying sufficient evidence to support each theory. It will outline any criticisms of each theory and demonstrate ways that I use memory. The disscusion will come to a closure with a final conclusion based on the discussion held. The definition of memory is the ability to store things in a persons mind and to be able to recall them. This idea would be useful for people of our past times, in order for hunting and avoiding danger. If we were

Why is that? Many question why some people have advanced or exceptional memory, and others do not – what factors affect it? How can I get it? How can I get my children to get it?
