I like approaching a thing for the first time. Fresh, beginner mind, sensitive to novelty. It is a little challenging to return to ABC State, which is embedded in the structure I chose for the Confirmation Report. I think I have got a nice attitude towards a simpler presentation, however as I look into it, the complexity emerges. It is inevitable.
Nevertheless, there is one part which is new. I have never examined the components of ABC State. I have only ever looked for academic theories or constructs which seem related. It is like I have plant and I look through a book to match parts of it. I can recognised things called ‘petals’ by some, ‘sepals’ by others; or that roots are the base of the plant, whereas other descriptions see roots as the head. This is how I have approached academic texts, as a kind of typology of a thing I have experienced. It is less the formal, explicit, verbalised structure of the ABC State, which is simple enough for children to get, but the psychological dynamic which it ‘captures’, ‘reflects’, ‘induces’.
I came up with a description of a few elements, which is partially related to how I came up with the structure in the first place (on the left). And then I decided to see what the correlates were in Reflexive Reading, on the right.
