考えたのに日の目を見なかった質問文

My interest is about individual behavior on their perception, feeling, and legitimacy.

When do people learn something new??
When do people change their perception and change their behavior sequentially??

Cannot they learn from just information which is not directly experienced and acquired??

For example, I work and research in Tokai area where some experts predict big earthquakes will inevitably occur in 20 or 30 years. After people there experienced earthquake the intensity was 3 at the beginning of last month, many people lashed to town office to get information how to improve their house strength. However, their behaviors haven’t changed after Niigata earthquake this time...

Prof. Edger Shine says the only factor which drives people to learn is anxiety toward life. But I cannot completely agree with this idea.
Something more joyful, ex. pleasure or wish, should be that one, I think.
On reconsidering the matter, of course those factors are the same ones as he says. But…

When do people learn something new??
When do people change their perception??

If I can find an answer to this question, it will become great help to make models of growing human networks.

Long time no write!

I was reading your BLOG and I felt that this topic is somehow linked to the book I'm reading right now (in the train!). It's called 'tuesdays with Morrie' have you read it?

You wrote that [~ the only factor which drives people to learn is anxiety toward life. But I cannot completely agree with this idea.Something more joyful, ex. pleasure or wish, should be that one, I think.] I agree with you ,and I often think that experience is the strongest factor that changes people's souls,mind, and behavior.

Anyway, in it book a character says "once you learn how to die, you learn how to live" " the most of us all walk around as if we're sleepwalking. We really don't experience the world fully, because we're half -asleep, doing things we automatically think we HAVE to do."

At first glance, this quote might sound partly spiritual, even too touchy-feely. But from how I see it , for example, if you lose someone close to you, at that precise moment you start to learn how to die ( by experiencing the loss)and finally open your eyes up and live each day to the fullest. Everyone knows that they won't be around forever, but somehow many of us tend to take things ( each day) for granted. I believe that **experiencing** death or something meaingful ( not just reading it in the paper or watching the news) inevitably drives people to perceive life differently. We then finally start to strip all the uunnecessary factors of life and focus on the essentials.

Anyhow, what I'm trying to say is that I strongly believe that experience has a much greater impact on human behavior compared to all the information in the media. We say ' A picture is worth a thousand words'. I woud like to say 'An experience is worth a thousand words'!

Seize the day~~☆☆☆

あなたが空しく生きた今日は、
昨日死んでいった者が、
あれほど生きたいと願った明日。
