Anticipation, Part 4

Theories are one thing, applying them is another. The example of the windshield wiper (Anticipation, Part 2) serves as a basis to apply the model of anticipation. You will have a hard time following the details, if you haven’t read certain blog entries. So, if you feel unfamiliar with some of the presented things, do […]

Anticipation, Part 3

The model of the circular process still lacks some details. I mentioned a special trigger and it lacks the response execution (Anticipation, Part 2). So, without further ado, an extended model of anticipation.     This model cannot be found in books. It is shortened and simplified for convenience reasons. In summary, it is far […]

Anticipation, Part 2

The model for anticipating movements isn’t completed yet, but the following example clarifies the circular process that was presented in the first part. Circular process for forming an internal model This example is especially fabricated and can be carried out easily. There is no need for a special training area, only a willing partner and […]

Anticipation, Part 1

Anticipation is nothing special, if you keep in mind the original model of the reaction chain. You need only slight changes. The necessary changes include an internal model of future events and a special trigger for starting the chosen reaction. Furthermore, it is much better to look at it as a circular process that is […]

Application of Patterns and Traits, Part 3

The blog entry Applications of Patterns and Traits, part 1 covered patterns and their availability. The second part covered causality. This part is about the relation of patterns and behavior modification. The availability of information and causality lead to internal models. These models try to project future events and form actions to act accordingly. If you […]

Choice Reaction, Part 9

The following scene from the movie Trinity Is STILL My Name! shows how internal self-restraints influence reaction times. Have a look at it. Trinity is played by Terence Hill. He had somehow cheated in the foregoing poker game. Wildcat Hendricks tries to teach him a lesson in a duel. You might have to look a […]

Choice Reaction, Part 8

In contrast to the example in the blog entry Choice Reactions, Part 7 the following example revolves around missing/ fast patterns and some special approaches to compensate for these circumstances. A new analysis tool is used for these observations. I will make deductions about and explain this approach in detail in later blog entries. The […]

Choice Reaction, Part 7

The previous examples just scratched the surface. An in-depth analysis includes much more than just visible patterns to avoid, reduce or optimize choice reactions times. Visible patterns are just one source of information. For example, rules in sport allow further conclusions. An analysis of mechanics and dynamics or background information on certain effects in motor […]

Choice Reaction, Part 6

In general, choice reactions have the highest response times, but the subject is much more complex. Schmidt and Lee [1] present various counter-examples. It becomes apparent that each individual and his own training history will affect the response times, and that only tests in particular situations will clarify the discussed differences. A special study [2], […]

Choice Reaction, Part 5

The blog entry Choice Reactions, Part 4 presented an approach with a search for an early pattern which was used to avoid a late differentiation. The late differentiation was responsible for a long response time, which in turn led to a failure to cope with an attack. It is important that this approach has to […]
