Acceptance of Focused Stress on a Population

Objective:

This KEEL-based model suggests how a stressful event that is focused on a population set might be interpreted with the potential for irrational behavior. The vertical access shows the potential acceptance of stress that would lead to a potential irrational behavior. The horizontal axis shows the focus of the the stress (an individual =0, family ~ 30, a population ~100). The average age of the indivual(s) is shown along the axis from back (age 0 to old age 100).

Some specific relationships:

The following graph shows a snapshot of susceptibility of an individual to stress when the individual is very young. The individual is self-focused and doesn't care about stress focused on anyone else.

Age 0

The following graph shows a snapshot of susceptibility of an individual to stress when the individual is young-adult. The individual is somewhat less susceptible to stress focused on him/her, extremely susceptible to stress focused on family and very little susceptible to stress focused on his/her population.

Age 30

The following graph shows a snapshot of susceptibility of an individual to stress when the individual is mid-life. The individual is somewhat less susceptible to stress focused on him/her, somewhat less susceptible to stress focused on family and somewhat more susceptible to stress focused on his/her population (more as person ages).

Age 60

The following graph shows a snapshot of susceptibility of an individual to stress when the individual is old. The individual is not very susceptible to stress focused on him/her, more susceptible to stress focused on family (but not as much as somewhat younger) and somewhat more susceptible to stress focused on his/her population (more as person ages).

Age 100

The following graph suggests that an individual's self focus is very high at birth and degrades and stabilizes in mid-life and then degrades further as the person ages.

Stress focused on "me"

The following graph shows interest in an individual's "family" increases from very small at birth, to very important and then degrades slightly as the individual ages.

Stress focused on "myfamily"

The following graph shows the potential susceptability of stress focused on an individual's population, as the individual ages. The suggestion is that an infant cares nothing about the population, but that concern about the population increases with age.

Stress focused on my population

Summary:

This is a demonstration of the use of KEEL Technology being used to model complex behaviors. There is no suggestion that this particular model is "accurate" as the specifics have not been validated by any psychological studies.
