Character and Behavior Meaning
On the right side of the mind Logic, there are thoughts felt through feelings that come from the external environment as stimuli. So, all information from the external environment is based on feelings.
Behavior is how to behave and how to improve your mindset and lifestyle. How you see yourself. You also need to know how other people think of yourself.
It is an aspect of your personality that is externalized and is directly influenced by your mind (conscious mind) and feelings.
Behavior refers to the external appearance or the way of behaving the actions and reactions and the picture you give to others.
It also allows us to be more introspective and self-aware by understanding who we are and provides a real and unique opportunity to become better people and diffuse inner confusion and conflict.
Character is an inner conceptualization of the left side of the mind Understanding.
It reflects a particular combination of inner qualities values, ethics, and morals you show to others as an image. A set of unique aspects that characterize the ego.
It is influenced and in turn influences and develops by our choices. It is supported by the left side of the mind (unconscious mind) and directly concerns the ideas and the opposite illusions. It happens without an outside confirmation and is usually subjective in nature.
Our thoughts consist of a perfect reflection of our state of mind and how we feel on the inside. Our thoughts reflect like a mirror to uncover and reveal our inner working of ourselves. It reveals how we really feel deep inside ourselves.
Both character and behavior constitute the unique set of qualities that form the Personality of a person which in fact reflects his very own distinctive belief system (values and truths) that are also mostly subjective in nature.
Conscious – Unconcious and Subconscious Mind
The right side of the mind refers to the conscious mind that has no memory and identifies incoming information received by the senses. This is information received through any of the five senses: sight, sound, smell, taste, touch. It is responsible for logic and reasoning. It also controls all the actions that you do on purpose while being conscious.
The left side of the mind refers to the unconscious mind that acts as an intermediary between the conscious and subconscious mental processes caused by the conscious mind. Τhese processes are not available to introspection. It retrieves them from the subconscious mind through the sixth sense of insight or foresight.
The state of being aware of something internal within the mind or external within the physical or sensory world through a conscious-unconscious mind constitutes Consciousness.
The subconscious mind is the focal point at the center of the human heart before any mental processes take place through the conscious unconscious mind. That holds all the memories, experiences, wisdom, or insights you’ve gained over the years.
It is also the recording mechanism that records the processed information coming from the two opposite parts of the mind of which we are aware of. However, the subconscious mind is out of the state of awareness.
Perception and Reality
The human character interacts with human behavior through emotions to satisfy psychological or other needs. If they are satisfied then the initial stimulus through the senses turns into satisfaction and pleasure. If not, then it turns into frustration and resentment.
In addition, human behavior interacts with the character through the senses and if the desires are satisfied then the corresponding stimulus turns again into satisfaction and pleasure.
If the initial desires or needs are not satisfied then the system is considered out of balance in both of the above cases and then it turns into frustration and resentment, and the procedure is repeated again and again until the original stimulus is satisfied.
Through thoughts, feelings, experiences, and emotions as regulatory forces of cause and effect, the internal environment communicates with the external providing the successes or unsuccesses following by the opposite emotions leading or not to a correcting procedure through following up.
This information through sensory perception is transformed through understanding from an external into an internal process. They are converted into thinking frames of reference and stored through the unconscious mind.
In this way, new experiences are compared against the previous ones and they are classified and stored either as new ones or modifying the initial ones. This is a cyclical procedure that never ends.
It always pushes humans to open up themselves to the unknown testing the untried waters gaining new knowledge and experience even though they may seem such as hard lessons as they follow the spiritual law.
The human heart acts as a communicating vessel through active and passive emotions comparing the results against the belief system that leads to the corresponding feelings of fear or guilt as long as the system is still out of balance.
Difference Between Character Behavior and Attitude
A character is a set of qualities that make someone special or unique or something different from others. Behavior, on the other hand, refers to the way of behaving, the actions – reactions.
A character has to do more with inner qualities and consist of a part of the personality. It involves mental concepts ethics morals and is very difficult to change with time.
The behavior has to do more with the action-reaction of an individual. They can change depending on the purpose. Certain behaviors are acceptable by society and some others are not.
The behavior changes relatively easily and can be influenced by many factors while a character is constant and can not change easily.
Attitude is a learned tendency to evaluate things in a certain way as far as issues, objects, people, or facts. The evaluation can be positive or negative based on the opposite feelings and emotions.
The Problem of Reality Perception
Experiences may be conscious inputs into the system as certainties but they still have to be perceived by the unconscious mind in order to enrich the level of consciousness. They reflect feelings as thoughts. They need outside approval and are learned. They are important for the emotional balance of the body, and the reason is obvious.
We just experience our experiences; we do not reflect on the principles or meanings that shape them. The unconscious part of the mind is in charge of turning conscious experiences into their unconscious references of these principles or meanings, raising the level of consciousness.
It happens through illusions. Illusions reflect values as beliefs. They do not need outside approval and are inhered. It happens for a very special reason.
So it doesn’t really matter how you feel or what you think of yourself as it constitutes a self-centered approach following the spiritual law of spiritual evolution that is continuously oriented to open to new experiences just as simple facts taking place with limited or no lessons at all going from one experience to another reminding of a spinning wheel.
The above may be good and necessary for spiritual law and for creating reality by always giving hope of tomorrow but does not help in human evolution as a long term procedure.
It comes down to culture values morals and emotions. Behavior as an aspect of personality that is externalized it depends mainly on the mind, the feelings, and the emotions.
It also comes down to how you see yourself and your ideas about what others think of you. A self-reflection of your own values as beliefs about who you are. They do not really reflect these experiences. They express your subjective views on who you wanted to be!
Unfortunately, even though the conscious mind is endowed with the pursuit of critical thinking and experiencing by adjusting the behavior against character deriving from the unconscious mind, in reality, it complicates the procedure by making things harder!
Through the above self-centered approach, the unconscious mind shapes (unconsciously) its external environment. Character through its deep-rooted values as beliefs influences behavior creating personal reality even though it does not possess such attributes as critical judgment.
This turns everything around. No matter how you feel or think on the inside the results will always be the same and your routine won’t change unless you change your view on yourself from inside. This means that you have to change the way you behave after you change your attitude or character accordingly.
The main reason is that the current cycle of evolution comes to its terms and a new one opens up at the dawn of a new era towards new states of experiences and higher levels of consciousness in order to support and sustain the above changes.
Making Ideas Happen: Overcoming obstacles between Vission and Reality
People who have learned how to regulate their emotions are in a much better position to know or realize what other people think of them. They are also able to read other people’s faces responses and intentions.
But they may gain such attributes using a different approach by altering the way of the underpinning thinking by affecting the causes as we examined them in detail in previous articles. Conditions need to change with self-actualization and self-empowerment as desires and initiatives.
To cure imbalances or illnesses, it will be necessary, through the emotions again, to recall or re-create the original stimulus to heal and correct the situation. In this way, negative experiences finally turn out to positive ones.
Any shortages, mental deficiencies, or physical illnesses will gradually heal themselves and through new sub-states of mind such as mindfulness and self-empowerment, they will gradually pull the system (pull driven approach) into a new and higher state of consciousness and existence.
Then values and truths will gradually shift from a subjective to an objective status and behavioral patterns sustained by facts and experiences will adapt to the inherent needs accordingly. Then the system will gradually come into a new and sustainable balance.
Unfortunately, the old model as a way of thinking reflects a subjective view both on how you think or you feel about yourself based mainly on external factors as culture, values, morals, and emotions. There is still missing an objective view of how other people see yourself from their standpoint of view and not yours.
Yet the left hemisphere of the mind reflects the unconscious mind that besides that it is aware by taking part in the process either as the cause or as the effect it can not reason and make meanings of things. This makes up an attribute of the conscious mind as the judging mind.
As a result, the unconscious mind not only runs the show (unconsciously) but also by the intervention of the conscious mind and its excessive demand for material goods triggers selfish behavior caused by its deep-rooted beliefs and character on the external environment and the other people involved. It is based on a culture of scarcity and as a result, our materialistic attitude governs our reality.
This makes up a win-lose approach and is both as unacceptable as terrifying. This, by itself, is causing great turbulence in society. Conflicts of interest are the ongoing results. We are in a transitional period. The passage from one phase to another is always difficult but also challenging.
No matter what you think about yourself or how much inner working you put in place on inside or examining outside perceptions or how you really feel on the inside or how to be open to new experiences nothing will transform in your life until humanity comes to a point to ascend from spiritual evolution to a breaking point of spiritual revolution. The time has come and is happening now.
A pull driven approach by altering the way of the underpinning thinking as obsolete and by affecting the causes solves the above problems as a win-win approach as it finally everything comes down to how we see ourselves. Humanity as a whole will benefit as humans are psychologically prone to interdependence.
The emotional body still remains the regulator. External or internal stimuli must be satisfied through emotions as action-reaction forces to keep the system into balance. Otherwise, a persistent or long-term imbalance in the system may lead to some psychological or physical illness.
The ability to objectively realize our great potential inside the context of our true capabilities by healing the emotional body by identifying inhered beliefs based on the syndrome of scarcity that no longer serves our higher purpose and replaces them with new ones will provide the necessary boost to the race for the spiritual evolution of humanity towards well being and happiness while diminishing the levels of quilt and vanity that blinds us to our own blindness.
