Creative cognition is defined as the approach that is used to explain the role of cognitive processes in the process of creative thinking. The main objective of the science dealing with the creative cognition is to be able to determine the components of the creative process. Through years of study and in depth empirical data analysis, it has been concluded that the process of creative thinking acts on a multitude of different processes. It is not limited to a certain psychological area or component that can be labeled as its own. This conclusion then makes it a challenge to limit the components and mechanisms that are involved in the process of creative cognition (Smith, Ward and Finke, 1995).
One of the main issues in the study of creative cognition is the basis of mechanism. One group believes in the evidences pertaining to the fact that creative cognition is based on expertise. On the other hand, an opposing side purports that creative cognitions is based on insight. The aim of the paper is to present an analysis of the two opposing sides on the basis of the available evidences.
By being based on expertise, it means that creative cognition is a structured process of psychological and mental activity. This can be considered analogous to a ‘systematic and well-organized’ manner of mental processes that are structured in different aspects (Stemberg, 1999, p.208). Based on the evidences related to the said concept, when the brain is given a particular problem to resolve, the automatic reaction is an analysis based on memory. This can be considered as logical resolutions to different stimuli. For example one issue is tackled, different parts of the brain related to the said issue is activated. This can be related to the popular saying that ‘experience is the best teacher.’ Due to the fact that the brain has stored information related to the issue, processing of the data is more efficient (Gabora,

Of course, I “fear” to lose my partner or to lose her love for me. But it fails to tell or show that I love my partner without necessarily being fearful. I mean, the question -- e.g., are you afraid to lose your partner’s love? -- is irrelevant or misleading.
This article starts with a discussion on the definition of attachment and the theory behind attachment based on the pioneers in the field. Thereafter, the article discusses reasons why attachment occurs and instances whereby attachment does not occur. The other part of the article dedicates its discussions to the effects of failure of attachment while the final part of the paper discusses the long-term effects of occurrence and non-occurrence of attachment.
Culture plays a significant role in determining attachment. The paper will also assess ways in which culture impact attachment. Attachment and Parenting Style Introduction The type of parenting style parent exhibit greatly affects a child’s development.
Children need maternal love to be able to develop interest to things and people in the environment; otherwise they would acquire a sad and an un-interactive life, due to what they missed early in life. This could be easily demonstrated by some children in institutionalised home cares or early in their foster homes.
In often times, a child has the natural caretaker as being the parent from who the child interacts with much of the time. This interaction between a child and the parent/caretaker leads to development of ties especially emotional ties, which helps the child view and interpret the world.
Amongst all these mentioned roles, the most essential and vital role is of an attachment figure as it helps in forecasting the child’s later emotional and social development. Attachment is one circumscribed and particular facet of the association between a caregiver and a child where the caregiver is involved in keeping the child protected, secure and safe.
