HUMAN SENSE

MAKING SENSE OF HUMAN BEHAVIOUR

The Human Space is a psychological space for making sense of human behaviour, both individually and collectively. Using proven research from the fields of cognitive linguistics, embodied cognition and neuroscience, the Human Space helps people to orient themselves in conceptual and experiential space.

While conventional methods of working with human behaviour attempt to tightly define a personality that remains unchanging in all contexts, the Human Space recognises that circumstances have a major influence on human behaviour. And that people are usually not working in just a single context but in multiple overlapping contexts.

HOW PEOPLE NAVIGATE UNCERTAINTY AND COMPLEXITY

HOW PEOPLE NAVIGATE UNCERTAINTY AND COMPLEXITY

Those multiple contexts include navigating the complexities and uncertainties of emotions at an individual level all the way through to cultures at a collective level. To make sense of these multiple overlapping contexts, we have developed a range of multiple Human Spaces that describe contexts from individual emotions through to collective cultures.

Human Spaces describe the conceptual and experiential spaces of how people navigate uncertainty and complexity. These complexities and uncertainties cannot be navigated successfully by simply using the conventional approaches of statistics or metrics. Instead, the Human Space works with perceptions and perspectives.

DEEPER UNDERSTANDING AND WIDER AWARENESS

DEEPER UNDERSTANDING AND WIDER AWARENESS

Humans navigate through uncertainty and complexity by making sense of where they are and who they are. We make sense of where we are by forming perspectives on the situation, naturally increasing our situational awareness. And we make sense of who we are by generating perceptions about ourselves, naturally developing our self-awareness.

Human Spaces can be combined to provide even deeper understanding and wider awareness of complex and uncertain situations. The Human Spaces also provide a firm foundation for the Human Sources, a library of source methods for working with the perceptions and perspectives that people generate and form.
