HSoftware (Fundamental Constituents of HSoftware)

After distilling the data collected in hundreds of our seminars involving thousands of people from different age groups, genders, educational and experience backgrounds and also, from our observations of large number of people during our 40 years of experience as business executives and management consultants in the corporate sector, we have arrived on an understanding that this “human software (HSoftware)” or “programming of mind” consists of following four absolutely fundamental elements or factors:

  1. Human beliefs (human value structure)
  2. Knowledge and information base (rational, emotional and spiritual) (here, spiritual knowledge has no relationship with rituals connected with organized religions and gods)
  3. Paradigms (mindsets or thinking patterns)
  4. Willpower (desire, motivation and enthusiasm to do, act or execute as well as to think, feel and learn which also involves action or doing, responsible for gaining insight into values, knowledge and paradigms as well as for development of competencies and skills)

It is very difficult to know the sequence in which the human mind acquires these four fundamental elements of HSoftware. Or is it sequential at all? Is it simultaneous or multi-tasking? Perhaps it may also be true that one element gives a trigger or push to another element(s). This push could be any to any, any to many, many to any and many to many. Is it easier to guess which element is acquired first in the beginning of human life? Perhaps “will power to do” is acquired first or is it “knowledge”? Can’t be too sure.

But one thing is sure that as shown in the diagram above, the four elements are always in loops, taking the shape of twisters, the sequence of the elements in the successive loops of the twister may vary.

These four factors are all in the human mind- that’s why they are “software”- the HSoftware.

In next few posts we will throw some light on each of these four basic factors of HSoftware.

In a hurried manner, we need to state here that though these four constituent elements are the most basic elements and since we define them as most fundamental they should also stand alone but truly they are not always independent of each other. They get complexly intertwined with each other many times.

For example, if one has will power to do, he may take steps to do learning to increase his knowledge. That shows the connection between the two factors or dependence of one factor on the other. But after gaining knowledge he may not put it into practice if at that point in time he lacks will power to do i.e. will power to implement what he learnt. That shows that the two factors “will power” and “knowledge” are not working in an interconnected way for this person and the two factors seem very basic and standalone in character.

In another example, a person may have the right kind of value structure as well as right king of knowledge but it may or may not necessarily ensure the right kind of day-to-day thinking patterns- the paradigms. If it does, there is an interconnect between “value structure” and “knowledge” with “paradigms”. However if it does not, in that case the “paradigms” seem to be a basic standalone entity nothing much to do with “value structure” or “knowledge base”.

That is the reason why we have identified the four factors mentioned in this chapter earlier as the standalone fundamental factors of the human software (HSoftware).

As per Shyam “Bhatawdekar’s Effectiveness model- HSoftware” that has been enunciated in this post, there are just about only four fundamental factors of human effectiveness; nothing more, nothing less. Every other conceivable factor is an extension or derivative of these four basic elements “value”, “knowledge”, “paradigm” and “will power to do”.

HSoftware (Uniqueness and Effectiveness)

From the previous posts on the subject “HSoftware”, we saw that human uniqueness comes from each one’s “human software (the HSoftware)”. And this “human software” is responsible also for the most correct or less correct or least correct solutions to the problems in personal, professional, family and social life of individuals.

Uniqueness of human beings is a reality but that does not mean that everyone is correct or say, uniquely equally effective and efficient. Some people may have wrong answers or solutions and they are least effective, those with relatively more correct answers are little more effective and those who are closest to the answers or who can find the right answers are most effective.

Philosophically speaking, life is all about finding the right or the most correct answers- the truth or getting closer to it. The mankind is busy doing it all the time from time immemorial. Those who reach the truth or nearer to truth- i.e. the more correct or most correct answers to life’s various issues and problems, are more effective than those who are away from it. And the strength to achieve this comes from the quality and quantity of HSoftware they possess and continually upgrade throughout their lives.

The people who have learnt elementary math- arithmetic have a particular type of “human software”, those who know it but goof up in adding due to certain reasons have a different “human software” and the people who did not learn arithmetic and so, cannot or are not inclined to add numbers, have yet another type of “human software”. In this example, the first types are most effective, the second set of people, less effective and the third types, the least effective. You can clearly see that this effectiveness is in direct proportion to the “human software” related to this arithmetic problem.

Now consider another area of your day-to-day activities. You must be buttoning up your shirt every day. Did you ever think about the best way to button it up? The people who have the knowledge of the best way of doing it i.e. to start from matching the bottom most button of the shirt with the bottom most button-hole and then working it up to the upper buttons one by one may button their shirts without any hassle and mistake than those who never thought about the better ways of doing it- that shows the difference in their HSoftware. One person thought about acquiring this little knowledge and applied it in practice and the other person just did not have any such desire and did learn a better method and so did not improve in buttoning up the shirt.

An analysis of what happens in choosing the leader in the air crash scenario described in the previous posts on the subject of “HSoftware)” brings forth more dimensions of this “human software”.

At times, a participant of our seminar chooses Captain Sunder because he had decided to stay put near the wreckage of crashed aircraft and the participant justifies that action of Captain Sunder by his knowledge that people cannot walk 100 kilometers distance. Others reject same Captain Sunder by saying that his SOS message has not reached and the rescue team will not turn up. Some participants strongly reject Shanti Lal based on their value structure that people who drink alcohol cannot be trusted. And others choose him saying that he can be the best leader since he built up a huge business empire from scratch on his own; they put aside his drinking habit as of no consequence. Ms Moses gets eliminated by some because of gender or age bias. Some people think that she cannot perform in tough times since she is a female or she is too young. Others like Ms Moses immensely because she is self less and has a cool temperament; those are the top most requirements to tackle a crisis situation as per them. Raj

Kumar is chosen because he is the winner type and by others he is not selected because he says that “leaders are born” and they don’t like him for that. For some, Mahinder Singh is the right person for this situation being a hunter but others reject him because he is capable of losing his temper violently.

In short, a particular participant of our seminar chooses a particular candidate from the survivors of the air crash because he gives more weightage to some specific qualities, characteristics and/or behavior of that candidate while the other participant rejects the same candidate for perhaps the same reasons or may be other reasons. He gives more weightage to something(s) else in this candidate or in some other candidates (from air crash survivors). These weightages are a straight resultant of this complex thing called HSoftware.

An analysis of these and many such responses tells us more about the “human software”. It is the “programming of human mind” at a given point of time for a particular situation. Based on this “programming of mind”, the same inputs are processed by different people differently because each one’s mind’s programming is different. Each one becomes a unique processor. If it was the same or similar “programming of mind”, answers or the solutions to given situation would be the same or similar. Otherwise, they will not be the same. That’s what exactly happens in the discussions on air crash situation.

What are, then, these factors or elements which make up this “programming of mind” or the “human software (the HSoftware)”?

HSoftware (Why This Uniqueness?)

Think about it.

Why is there a significant conflict in the solutions of air crash situation (refer earlier post “HSoftware (Evey Human Being Is Unique)”: http://shyam.bhatawdekar.net/index.php/2018/04/05/hsoftware-every-human-being-is-unique/) but unanimity in the problem of simple addition of two numbers? Answer: It is because of the “human software (the HSoftware)”, the “programming of mind”. In case of air crash, every one’s “human software” is not the same. In case of a simple addition problem (2 + 3 = ?), everyone uses exactly same and precise and correct “human software”. Adding 2 and 3 is a very simple problem in arithmetic and if one has learnt the elementary math; one can solve it to arrive at exactly the same answer i.e. 5.

In learning mathematics all of us get conditioned to think exactly in the same manner. We learn that there can be just one answer to the problem and a precise method is taught to arrive at that solution. Everyone accepts that kind of learning.

And even in mathematics, only some people understand and acquire that knowledge of solving the problem and others just don’t grasp it. Those who learn and apply that knowledge perfectly well always arrive at one solution unanimously. There is not an iota of dissention or conflict among them. Then, they do not remain unique any more as far as solving mathematical problem is concerned.

But those others who cannot learn mathematics just cannot come out with the solution. Yet, if at all they attempt to do it with their imperfectly acquired HSoftware, each of them comes out with a different answer (just like what we saw for the air crash situation earlier) and they might start debating that each one’s answer is correct though the truth is that each one’s answer is absolutely wrong.

But other than mathematics and some exact sciences no where such a phenomenon of arriving at only one exact solution by all the people having the required HSoftware occurs. In math and science if you happen to acquire a correct HSoftware, you get it perfectly right otherwise you just don’t get it. But rest of the life is not all mathematics and exact sciences. Here even with imperfect and incomplete HSoftware acquisition, people do stumble on some solutions which seem acceptable to them though may not be as correct as they should be. And then various people use or apply these various imperfect solutions they came up with by using their varying degrees of HSoftware. They apply them in their personal, family, professional and social spheres of life and become effective to various degrees in getting various degrees of successes.

Life is like the air crash situation described in chapter 2 and answers to the same one single situation seem to be numerous and each answer seems correct to some persons. So there can be numerous answers to the same issues arrived at by different people. So, different people think in different manners on such real life issues and each person feels comfortable with himself.

Why?

Again, it is because of the “human software (the HSoftware)”, the “programming of mind”. Though in math and science mind’s programming gets done in one singular way by one singular HSoftware, in rest of the situations other than mathematics and exact sciences, the mind’s programming gets done in numerous ways (not in a singular way as in math and science) depending upon what and how much HSoftware each person has acquired from the environment and from which all sources and resources.

These pieces of HSoftware are not exact and precise and there may be numerous pieces of them used by different people to tackle just about one issue or one problem. And life presents endless problems and each problem gets tackled by each person in a different manner. The manner in which each tackles a problem depends on his own acquired HSoftware which is never exactly the same between two persons the way it is with math and other exact sciences where the acquired software is either absolutely right or absolutely wrong. With real life day-to-day issues different people accept different shades of thinking patterns and solutions.
