Self-ecology, also called personal ecology, is the
collection of events and experiences that occurred in one’s life that make them
the unique person they are. Each
event and/or experience becomes part of our memory, (whether conscious or
unconscious) and becomes a type of filter (whether an enhancer or deterrent)
that makes us unique individuals.
For the purposes of our assignment, the Self-Ecology Paper,
we want to take a close look at some of our previous events and/or experiences
that define how cognition occurs in our own lives. Most writers refer to events and experiences from early childhood
and how those early events and experiences drive personal cognition.
