When asked, most people would agree that they would prefer to feel peace over anger. However, if we were to look at anger in more depth, we would realise that people experience this emotion in very different ways. Anger is usually a reaction to how an individual would respond to a situation or life event, and many people may not realise that they are carrying anger around with them in their day to day lives. When we compare this to peace, peace is the epitome of forgiveness. We can not find peace within ourselves until we can learn to forgive other people for their actions.
Memory is an individual’s way of interacting with his/her world and perceiving new information. It’s a complex system that stores, retrieves, and acknowledges information, and the way it functions is still a mystery to man-kind. Nonetheless, there have been numerous theories and models about the way in which memory functions. One of these theories within the cognitive level of psychology is called ‘the multistore model of memory’ (MSM), which was proposed by Atkinson and Shiffrin (1968). The model claims that the memory is not a single unit, but it is made up of three different types of memory; the sensory store, the short-term store (STS), and the long-term store (LTS). These different stores vary in the duration which they can hold a memory, the capacity of their storage, and the coding or way in which each stores specific information. The information is first received by the sensory memory, then, it is sent over to STS, and by repeating the data continuously, it will be sent to the LTS where it can be retrieved again to the STS. The idea is far too simple to be applied to something as complex as the memory, and has been doubted to be true by many scientists, but on the other hand, there are examples such as the case of HM to support this plain model.
I have tried and quickly failed to dignify this article, one that is so close to my heart, with the right introduction. I had so many thoughts when I started writing, but it's getting increasingly tricky to accurately express what's in my mind to a casual reader browsing through for some new content.
