Yeo proposes a framework for conceptualizing human information processing based on three chained filters: an awareness filter, which feeds into a reactivity filter, which feeds into an identity filter. In short, he proposes a cycle wherein curiosity can increase awareness, which produces data. The ability to react to data, which involves anything from cultivating a skill to developing personal opinions, produces information. Finally, when information is processed, one’s identity shapes whether or not it’s incorporated into one’s worldview, discarded, or something in between. Yeo argues that only by understanding the limiting factors of each of these three filters can we come to effectively update our world mode.
