Imitation

Wednesday, December 26th, 2012

The type of involved behavior affects the amplitude of imitation. The trend is to imitate more or simple behaviors of what the extremely complex ones. The hostility and the aggressiveness to very tend to be imitated, mainly for the children (Bandura, 1986). Thus, what it is seen in the real life or the media, many times, determine our behavior. Albert Bandura, together with other scientists, has demonstrated that the comment of violent scenes increases the probability of that the child has an aggressive behavior in the period immediately subsequent to the television program (BRAZELTON, 1995, P. 465) a basic principle of the social learning is the distinction enters the learning (acquisition of knowledge) and the behavior (observvel execution of this knowledge). The case can be given not to have internal and/or external factors that impel in them not to act of the form that we know.

However, it has 4 elements in the learning for comment: Attention. An election exists what we give attention, what it is crucial to learn itself for comment. This election is made in function of the characteristics of the model (statute/prestige, ability, affective valence), of the observer and the activity in itself. Retention. The observed information is codified, translated and stored in our brain, with an organization in standards, form of images and verbal constructions. It must possess what if it assigns for practical cover (to be capable of the imagtica or propositional repetition of procedures that observed or rules) and of what if it assigns of practical mannering (to be capable of repeated and systematic the execution them procedures that observed.)? Reproduction. It consists of translating the symbolic conceptions of the behavior stored in the memory in the corresponding actions. It can have difficulties in the translation (former.: physical inabilidades) and therefore, the correct execution must be facilitated, when it is if to teach somebody.
