Behavior, Factors That Intervene In
Understanding the function of the different centers with their own cycles and rhythms clarifies the different speeds and types of reactions one may have to the incoming stimuli. The levels of consciousness also have great weight in determining the functioning of one's entire structure. The reveries and the reverie nucleus act as either inhibitory or mobilizing forces and rule one's aspirations, ideals, and illusions. These will, all change as one passes to new life stages. Both social and environmental factors as well as the nature and characteristics of the stimuli one receives will influence one's behavior.
The biography or memory of the previous structured stimuli‑responses and of the levels of consciousness that were active at those moments also strongly pressure the formation of one's present behavior. Thus, the memory is an ever‑present system of stimuli that acts from the past with an intensity similar to present stimuli. The data from the memory, whether or not explicitly evoked, unavoidably pressure and act in each instant that the structure receives new stimuli and elaborates responses. The behavioral roles (See) act at all times, even when one is no longer in the situation. In this way the roles form a real structure since they are related in a dynamic way, with some roles always pressuring and influencing others.
All the factors that intervene in behavior interact in a dynamic and structural way; the center of response, the levels of consciousness, and the biography or memory form an inseparable structure in which a modification in one factor changes the whole structure.
