Park yourself in the recliner after that you have inserted the DVD into the DVD player. Then aim the complete remote control towards the receiver that controls your home theater system with DTS sound followed by coloring of the black screen on the HDTV. The colors begin to take shape into familiar lines and curves as you prepare yourself for an adventure away from your world to an alternate world. The procedure is simple and does not require any complex thought processing at all as you are being spoon-fed images in a sequential manner. The only thing that you demand is that those images that you perceive on the HDTV fit into your way of making sense of your world, as you understand it. However, if these images do not fit into your own perspective of the world you seek a way of adapting it to your own world, or you adapt your world to what you just have perceived. In either case, it demands that you will have to stretch your thought processing to a new level in order to receive the benefits of the experience of the constant shifting images. This is a cognitive process that is often being referred to as learning, since it requires both cognitive effort and struggle that hopefully would lead to a conclusion. This conclusion would demonstrate your capability of making sense of unfamiliar and new experiences. Nevertheless, if you perceive learning as difficult due to previous attempts that have led to failure. This failure can add a negative self-image of your self-concept that is necessarily not accurate, but stems from situational origins. Even though you inaccurately use your self-concept to perceive your self-image as negative, you will feel the unpleasantness of the negative self-image and you will try to avoid it. Thus, if you have a negative self-image of your capability to understand the associations of the moving images on the HDTV in unison with the DTS sound from the home theater system you are more likely to avoid the unpleasantness that the images might add to your self-image.
In conclusion, if you enjoy or loathe a movie can be due to environmental disaster that haunts the movie such as poor picture, sound, script etc that can be blamed on them who are responsible for the making of the film. Moreover, you might like or dislike the movie due to your values, morals, and beliefs that is influenced by your peers, parents, family, co-workers, and others, i.e., your socially subjective evaluation of the movie. The third factor that is often avoided is the personal and psychological reason why the movie was either good or bad. One psychological reason has already been depicted here, however, there are a multitude of other psychological reasons why a movie can be observed as either pleasant or unpleasant such as previous experiences, traumas, fears, or secrets that make you feel the way you feel at any give time. So fall back in the recliner, watch what you want and feel good about yourself.
