Over the past 3 semesters, I have been learning the theories of Information Measurement Theory and Kashiwagi Solution Model and implementing them into my life as a means of improving happiness and well being, and reducing stress and conflict. Before IMT and KSM, external control played a huge role in my life and my interactions with other people. I was judgmental, selfish, and lazy while using blame and deflection of responsibility to avoid self-control. This led me to become very unhappy and live in constant stress. Culminating in a difficult shortcoming that magnified the negative ways in which I had been living my life, I decided that I had to change. Since implementing IMT and KSM into my life and accepting self-responsibility, I have dramatically improved my happiness and reduced stress and conflict. I have lost 85 pounds, went from working 1 job to 4 to gain financial independence, made my best grades in college, stopped wasting time and valued free time more, improved my relationships with people in my environment, and learned more about myself. All of this change required me to commit to a new way of thinking and recognize that my previous way of thinking was inaccurate and unsustainable if I truly wanted to change. Upon making positive changes in my life, I believe that adapting IMT and KSM played fundamental roles in my ability to perceive information around me and I would not have experienced the change I did if it was not for exposure to the theories. Not only do I believe IMT and KSM served as catalysts for change in my life, but believe IMT and KSM can be applied to every aspect of life and be used by others in the same approach.
