Cumulative Model

People store and assimilate information. Whenever we pass a bad driver on the road, we turn and look at the car and the driver. We may not memorize the details, but we absorbe the information and add it to our model. In this case, our model of bad drivers, a set of stereo types, which is part of our model of the world. It helps us to be more aware of possible dangers while we are driving and signals to help us navigate and drive efficiently. Over time we recognize the most important aspects of our environment on a subconscious level, improving our driving ability and increasing our available range of perception. Whether we are aware or not, we assimilate all the information we percieve on some level, and it changes the lens we see the world through.
