[Read before you answer question 1A] After re-reading page 1 of my essay “Exploring Our Mental Model” until the end of the 4th paragraph of page 3 whose last sentence ends with: … “our assumptions and beliefs about the way things are”),
QUESTION 1A: Describe how I support my conclusion that we do not simply see and experience the world “out there” as it is. Rather, our mental model profoundly shapes our lives – or, as I put it, “it is not just our actions and reactions, but our very perceptions, what we think we see, hear, feel, smell and experience that are deeply affected by our mental model, our assumptions and beliefs about the way things really are” (this quote is on pages 2 and 3)
