Example text

During an imaginary episode from an intraspective position what unfolds is described by Sartre as the individual’s use of complete objects and situations to construct a reality. This is inherently different from the perceived world where we see things in certain limited aspects which attenuate our attention. By comparison, the imagination provides things in their entirety and compensates for the shortcomings of perception (Dobson 1993: 22). Thus, in our example, the boss is seen, not necessarily as a demagogue, but instead by virtue of imagination as an over-reach towards entirety, the boss is presented to us as wholly unfair and wholly bullish.

These visceral sensations can precede your emotion, they can occur whilst you undergo the experience, and sometimes they can linger long after; whereby they may impact unrelated events at work or in your personal life (Small and Lerner 2008). For instance, with anger emerge variations in heartbeat and as you process the situation further, you place blame with the management, and at that moment your line managers intimidating face appears in your mind. Suddenly, you shudder with fear and goosebumps line up your forearm.

In our e-mail example, the imagination is a continuation of perceived events that takes place in a more personal reality of my making. A key question that people involved in change might ask is whether “imagining” as an apperceptual experience makes the employee more susceptible to emotional experiences? The answer in all likelihood is yes. Most workers in modern organizations are involved in the routines of hierarchy and related rules that govern actions. One important rule has remained above most others, that is, think rationally in perceiving and making sense of the problems faced by organizations.
