Conscious Self-Control: the Structure/Function and Content Aspects
Konopkin O.A., PhD in Psychology, Chief researcher at the Institute of Psychology, Russian Academy of Education. Member of Russian Academy of Education, professor., Moscow, Russia, email@example.com
The author analyses two main aspects of regulatory processes that determine their perfection, the stage of development and characteristics of performance. The former, «structural-and-functional aspect», relates to the inner mechanisms of conscious voluntary self-control. The latter, to deal with so-called psychological content, relates to psychological means with which the individual realises the functional structure of control. The second aspect has advantages: it enlarges and deepens the image of control processes, both cognitive and pragmatic; it shows the role of emotions, motivations and personality; it demonstrates the functional unity of the mind in the conscious self-control processes. The live process of psychological control exists as a basic unity of both structure (form) and content, each of which alone is insufficient.
