NMAT Mock Test - 7 (New Pattern) - Question 1

Direction: Read the passage and answer the questions that follow.:

Visualisation is the three-dimensional, multicoloured, singing-and-dancing version of affirmations that enables the subconscious to prefigure future achievement or success. It is a basic and fundamental human attribute, and one that can literally be the difference between surviving and not surviving.

When Victor Frankl, the Freudian psychologist, was examining the discriminating factors that enabled him, and many like him, to survive in the hell of the Nazi concentration camps, the key factor was the ability to visualize. All survivors had a vision of something beyond their current suffering, something more worthwhile, and something worth hanging on for.

This underlines the importance of each individual having a vision of something, outside and larger than herself, that gives her life some meaning. The very existence of a mission lifts the eyes to something more meaningful and enduring - and in so doing provides something to live for - at times when quiet surrender could be an attractive option. Such a vision gives a further raison d'etre for integrity, by providing a purpose that binds together the core values that make up self-worth.

One of the most powerful - and difficult to achieve - applications of visualization is to focus your mind daily on the person you intend to become. Create a clear mental picture of that person - and see it in full colour, and add sounds and smells, if they are appropriate. The emotional values you add to the visualization are vital in making the full connection to your subconscious, which acts only on thoughts that are mixed with emotions. These techniques are, of course, widely validated in fields like sport and business, where the peak performers are nearly all visualisers. They all see, fell, and fully experience their success before they achieve it.
