Improving the quality of people-woodman

Therefore, in order to have a wise mind, you should be brave enough to broaden your horizons, dare to observe, be good at observation, open a bright "window" for your intellectual development, and give your brain a pair of "smart eyes"!

  3. Improving observation improves the quality of human beings

  In order to gain a comprehensive and profound understanding of things, human beings must have certain qualities; and every observation activity will enrich and improve the quality of the observer. The self-development of a person is in fact the continuous improvement of the power of observation. The progress or backwardness of a society, the quality of a people, is sometimes expressed in the power of observation generally possessed by the members of that people. It can be said that the development and improvement of the power of observation is an important way of improving the quality of individuals and peoples.

  Observation is one of the most important aspects of all forms of scientific research, and it is only through observation that it is possible to discover and ask questions. Einstein said that it is more important to find and formulate a problem than to solve it, because while solving a problem may be a mathematical operation or an experimental technique, finding and formulating a problem requires observation and the use of creative imagination to achieve it.

  Observation is essential for developing skills. When one has good observation skills, one actually has good learning skills, and the process of developing skills is naturally easier. Good observation helps people with a wide range of thinking activities such as memory and facilitates progress in learning and work. Without a conscious effort to strengthen the cultivation of observation skills so that they are good at observing the subtle changes in complex things and phenomena and their essential features, they will not be able to effectively perceive fully, acquire regular knowledge and will find it difficult to improve their ability to analyse, judge and synthesise generalisations, which are all necessary for intellectual development, academic progress and soaring in life.

  For children in the learning stage, it is very important to develop and improve their powers of observation. Zankov, a famous Soviet educator, conducted a study on "poor students" in schools and found that a common characteristic of "poor students" was their poor observation skills. Although these children could see things with their eyes wide open, they did not always see much, and even made many mistakes. As they say, "A good observer sees what no one has seen before; a bad observer enters a mountain of treasure and returns empty." As a result of their observation skills, 'poor' students are less able to grasp knowledge, their desire to learn decreases and they eventually become bored with learning. On the other hand, if they have good observation skills, their enthusiasm for learning will naturally increase, and their ability to grasp knowledge and their overall quality will gradually improve, so that the purpose of education can be truly achieved.

  Observation is also one of the comprehensive qualities of future talent, and better observation can sometimes be seen as better thinking skills and a higher level of overall quality. Observation is not the preserve of certain people. As an ordinary person, learning to observe is essential even if you do not intend to be the best in a particular field. In modern and future societies, learning to observe social phenomena, make your own judgements and develop your own codes of conduct will enable you to constantly improve your quality and become more in tune with the rhythm of social development.

  III. Ways to improve your powers of observation

  1. General rules and methods for improving observation

  The ability to feel is inherent in human beings, but the improvement of perception depends to a large extent on the stimulation of the environment. The power of observation requires deliberate training and development.

  (1) Protecting the perceptual organs

  The development of the senses is a prerequisite for observational training. The improvement of perceptual skills contributes to the maturation of the nervous system and the intellectual development of the brain, making people deaf and smart and contributing to the development of intelligence.

  Attention must be paid to the healthy development of the eyes, nose, ears, mouth, hands and other organs, as this is the material basis for the development of the sense of perception.

  Opportunities should be used and created to stimulate the development of each organ. Look at more beautiful pictures, listen to more moving music, do more hands, talk more, etc. All these actions have a stimulating effect on organ development.

  (2) Clarify the purpose of observation

  Observation should have a clear purpose, a centre and a scope in order to ensure that attention is focused on the object of observation. The laws of perception in psychology show that if you perceive something with a clear purpose and task for observation, your attention will be focused on the thing in question and your perception will be clear and complete. If the purpose of the observation is not clear, the observation will be like a "walk in the park" and the effect will be greatly reduced.

  A clear purpose for observation is to create a sense of observation in one's mind and to recognise the benefits of observation for the development of one's own intelligence; secondly, when observing anything, one must have a clear purpose, i.e. what to observe and why to observe it.

  (3) Observe things in a planned manner

  Everything is planned before it is done, but not before it is done. There are differences in the content, scope and duration of observation activities, but they all need to be carried out in a planned manner. To have a plan for an observation is to set out the purpose and steps of the observation before it begins. For example, when children are learning to wash clothes, they can first observe how their parents do it: how much water to put in, how much washing powder to use, which clothes to wash separately, how long to leave the washing machine on, etc. They can help and observe at the same time, learning to wash clothes and improving their powers of observation. Some people like flowers and plants, so they can grow their own pot of flowers or other plants, observe their changes every day and write some observation diaries. Such observation activities are very effective in satisfying their own interests and providing rich content for observation.

  Generally speaking, if you are young, you should look for things that are more connected to your daily life, or better yet, start with your daily life and choose things that are more familiar, have more obvious features and are easier to observe, based on your existing knowledge and experience, and gradually carry out observation training.

  As they grow older, the necessary knowledge and experience will have been developed and they will then begin to observe the more complex, less obvious and easily overlooked details, things or events that require analysis and judgement.

  (4) Mastering the correct methods of observation

  As the old poem goes, "Look across the mountain and see the peak", observing things from different angles will give you different information and feelings. Therefore, it is important to master different methods of observation. When observing, it is important to follow a step-by-step plan and to be clear about what to observe first, what to observe later and where to focus your observations. Otherwise, it is easy to get stuck in a messy situation and fail to gain a complete and accurate understanding.

  Other common methods of observation include: comprehensive and focused observation; observation in the natural state and in experiments; long-term observation, short-term observation, regular observation; frontal and lateral observation; direct and indirect observation; anatomical (or decomposition) observation, comparative observation; recorded and unrecorded observation, etc.
