Cognitive Functions

Several cognitive functions are believed to work in conjunction with many other neural processes to create your belief systems (among other things). Those six cognitive functions are:

  • Abstractive - dealing with ideas rather than events
  • Quantitative – measuring by the quantity of something rather than its quality
  • Cause-and-effect – a relationship between actions or events in that one or more events result from the action or actions (some say that for every action there is a reaction, some being more obvious than others)
  • Dualistic-oppositional- a perspective that two concepts, ideas, beliefs, perspectives, or things are polar opposites or antonyms of each other
  • Reductionist - reducing the whole to its parts in an attempt to make the world seem more comprehensible
  • Holistic - perceiving how things are connected into a whole
