The role of Brain - Probability & Consequence

Stuttering Jack (www.stutteringjack.com) have explained about 2 fundamental credentials namely, Probability & Consequence which composes mostly of the mind share towards stammering.

Every stammerer combined with the particular speaking situation can be given ratings out of 10 for both probability & consequence.The multiply of these will give the mind share of someone's stammering out of 100.

Let's have a brief about them separately :

1.) Probablity - Suppose a stutterer is needed to speak in a particular situation.His brain will observe the situation & rate it out of 10 in fractions of seconds, even sometimes without letting the stutterer even noticing it.

For example, 0 for a situation where he would be confident of speaking with stuttering at all & 9 for a situation where he would be sure to experience a lengthy block.

2.) Consequences - This time, his brain would figure the various consequences of stuttering at that situation.Here also, rating would be given on a scale of 0 to 10.If stammerer feels comfortable that stammering would not cost his any personal/professional/social harm at all, then his brain would rate it zero.A high rating of 7,8, or 9 would be given if his brain considered stuttering at that situation as very undesired or trouble some.

So if Probablity rating is 5 & consequences rating is 6, the product would be 30 out of 100.

Here again, we can figure out the psychological aspect of stuttering & confirm the effectiveness of various spiritual approaches.

Yes. Spiritual approaches help. But they dont "cure" the basic biological (which is small in any case) component of dysfluency.. In other words- you stop worrying too much about it.. and yes, as an overall effect, your communication does improve..
Good write up..
