Paradigm Shift is a change in the overriding theoretical framework that governs a scientific discipline
Almost every significant breakthrough in the field of science began with a break with tradition, a break with old ways of thinking, a shift or change from old paradigms
Ex: 2nd century A.D. Ptolemy asserted that the earth was the center of the universe (geocentric view)
In the early 1500’s scientists began saying otherwise (heliocentric view) and these individuals were condemned (because it this view contradicted with that of the church) until Galileo was able to prove it in the 1600’s
Ex: Field of medicine was revolutionized by the germ theory
Ex: Field of psychology from early accepted psychodynamic theory onto today’s perspective
“The important thing is not to stop questioning”—Albert Einstein
Prior to every paradigm shift in the past there was significant resistance to the shift
Galileo was imprisoned and threatened with death and asked to recant his ideas before he was released
Does the same thing happen with our own personal paradigms? Yes!
One reason for such resistance is that we continue to look to support our frame of reference or paradigm (Hypothesis Testing)
Hypothesis Testing=Selective Perception which is the tendency to perceive that which we expect to be there
Information outside of our paradigm we tend to ignore
Ex: How information is presented to us in the media
Ex: The movie the Sixth Sense and holding the perspective that the main character is alive
How does this contribute to your effectiveness as an individual? As Einstein said “the significant problems we face today can not be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them”
