Play: A Theory of Learning and Change

This booklet examines the query of why ‘play’ is a cheerful and benevolent verb in early life, but a subjective label of behaviour in maturity. It experiences the transformation of the definitely labelled time period ‘child’s play’, used to consult our early years, into an aberrance or deviation from basic social relationships in later lifestyles, after we converse of enjoying up or fooling around.

Sample text

A person’s motives can be divided into two groups: sense formative and situational (Leont’ev, 1871). Sense formative motives are relatively stable and determine a person’s general motivational direction. Situational motives are connected with immediate ongoing activity and the performance of a specific task. As a result, situational motives are more flexible. The sense formative motives are connected with personality and may be more important in the selection of people for different jobs. The situational motives are involved in task performance.

This type of anticipation is characterized by the further complication of the integration of mental processes that shape our anticipation. Images that are stored primarily in our shortterm memory are important for this type of anticipation. They are activated and modified as the process of perception of objects, and some of the images are constructed directly as perception. For example, thanks to this kind of anticipation, more effective strategies can be developed for finding information in the perceptual field, called primary images.

Anticipation that involves imagination suggests using the secondary types of images, which are stored not only in the short term but also in the long term. At this level, complex images of a situation outside of direct perception are constructed. Such complex images are performed anticipatory functions. Perceptual images are primary images that arise due to the direct impact of stimuli on the sense organs. Secondary images can be developed outside of direct perception. The perceptual type of anticipation works closely with the imaginative type of anticipation.
