Self-introduction
I am extensively interested in how differences in social background and perceptions of inequality affect cognitive thinking systems (and vice versa), as well as how cognitive thinking systems are developed and learned in interpersonal relationships and the psychological and social consequences, such as individual well-being, of specific cognitive thinking systems. Since an individual's cognitive thinking systems are readily impacted by the group or environment to which he or she belongs, I also intend to broaden my study to include the viewpoints of individuals and cultural differences.
