Pseudomorphing is a “common-sense problem-solving method” based on the “Pseudomorph Model” to identify the whole truth of a problem (and thereby also the solution) even if we know nothing. It is the basis for all creative processes, whether we are conscious of it or not. It is based onthe assumption, that people show their true inner self in moments of change, when balance is disrupted by new information.
Our approach is focussed on the analysis of values in micro-interaction. Humans cannot hide their true motivational value priorities, when put under stress. These priorities provide insight into human cognitive, affective and behavioral processes to improve information flow between self learning systems.
Our definition of wisdom:
Skill and ability to find the most important answers for „information certainty“* and therefore for a sustainably happy and successful life
In about 75% of the cases we can adequately solve a problem. However, in about 25% of the cases we experience “wicked problems” were previously successful problem solving strategies don’t work anymore. In those cases we need to answer the question:
Who is crazy**, me or the others? (sensemaking: information gaps and contradictions, what is the context of learning?)
To find the answer to this question, the following checks need to be performed:
1.Consciousness problems (possible direction of mindset): Must or may I/or the other person change? (Pressure or free will?)
- Possible level of dependency or self determination of action? (level of integration between what, how and why; thinking, feeling and acting)
2.Perception problems (probable limits context): Am I/or the other person not willing, or not able to change?
- Probable level of security in decision making? (level of balance between inner and outer security). Has all necessary relevant information been communicated to make an informed decision?
3.Attention problems (actual attention): Am I/or the other person present or absent?
- Actual level of certainty? Am I and the other person truly interacting in the present moment to reach certainty about the best solution for a problem? (intersection between possibility and probability)
4.Readiness to learn (framework priority/timing)
- Actual level of changeability, ready and open for new information, or closed mindset.
*information certainty is the difference between reality and our perception of reality
** crazyness defined as resistance to learn new information. The more crazy, the less open to new information/change. Integrating new information without willingness to change is not possible.
Pseudomorphing the cube
It is impossible to be certain about the whole truth of a problem due to the phenomenon, that somethings same things look different from the outside and different things can look the same. When we receive information we can have a pretty good hunch about the funciton, meaning and purpose of this informatoin, but we cannot be sure, until we have ruled out other possible functions, meanings and purposes.
The solution to this problem is to perform a series of actions to first check our internal system for erros in information processing, and then to check the external system for disfunctions.
The structured application of the actions follows the order below:
- Do something, and observe if problem increases or decreases
- Do less, and observe
- Do more, and observe
- Do opposite, and observe
After checking the internal and external system and the problem is still there, you are in the wrong framework and the problem is something totally different. This process then needs to be iterated over and over again until the right problem in the right framework is found. The best solution is defined as the solution which makes all involved agents or parties sustainably happy.
