Sample text

There are two types of expectations: the subsensory type and the set. Anticipation can be of four types: sensory-perceptual, perceptual, imaginative, and verbal-logical. We can present predictive mechanisms of human activity in the following way: 1. Types of expectations: (a) subsensory and (b) set 2. Types of anticipations: (a) sensory-perceptual, (b) perceptual, (c) imaginative, and (d) verbal-logical The more complex types of anticipation are the last two (imaginative and ­verbal-logical). These two types of anticipation are involved in more broad areas of human work.

In performing this type of task, there is complex interaction of perceptual, Activity Theory and the Vector Motive → Goal as Its Basic Concept 13 mnemonic, and cognitive processes. However, the leading role in carrying out such task belongs to perceptual information. In some cases, such types of anticipation require the development of perceptual hypotheses. The spatial-temporal type of anticipation is important in the process of control of various types of transportation systems. In these types of task, the operator is on a moving system and he or she is involved in the prevention of a collision.

Hence, the vector motive → goal is a qualitative psychological concept. It has only some similarity with the vector in physics. However, in principle, it can be used in psychophysical measurement methods by which it is possible to depict the psychological intensity of a vector. It is more difficult to precisely depict the psychological orientation of the vector motive → goal in relation to each other. Despite these limitations, the vector motive → goal pretty accurately reflects the 26 Application of Systemic-Structural Activity Theory essence of the phenomenon.
