Researchers from Exeter University found: the person develops and strives for self-improvement through independent thinking and some other mechanisms. His theory, scientists have confirmed in the experiment. The volunteers were asked to learn to weave baskets in three different ways.
The first group of pre-read books about the techniques of weaving. The second group studied a ready-made basket and had to make it analog. Volunteers from the third group watched what other participants of the experiment, and tried to repeat their actions.
The best result, scientists have recorded in the group enrolled on the books. People are mimicking the pattern, tried to use better and more reliable materials for their crafts. Scientists suggest, not only training, but also creative thinking push a person to self-improvement. It is likely that these are the two qualities cause the rapid development of the human species within the framework of evolution.
