Mulling Over School and Life: The Windmills of Your Mind

Overview

Are you someone who "thinks things over?" Do you have conversations with yourself, silently in your head? If so, you are a practitioner of reflexivity. I use "classic" American films to describe four types of reflexivity. After introducing thirty-nine persons from the South Denver High School class of 1968, I ask if their type of reflexivity is related to the level of social status they reached.

Roy Wilson currently serves on the Editorial Board of The Society for Modeling & Simulation International Newsletter and is a peer reviewer for the Journal of Artificial Societies and Social System Simulation. He lives in Virginia with his wife and five and half pounds of fluffy fury: namely, a Yorkshire Terrier named Martin.

Between 2001 and 2010, Roy published several conference and peer-reviewed journal papers related to simulation, small groups, and education.
From 2001 through 2006, he worked on several projects (one funded by the National Science Foundation) at the Learning Research and Development Center of the University of Pittsburgh. In 2005, the Department of Administrative and Policy Studies (in the School of Education) at the University of Pittsburgh awarded him the Ph.D. degree. In the 1990s, he taught several courses at Carnegie Mellon University in the history of computing while earning a Master's degree in History and Policy. In the 1980s, Roy earned a Master's degree in Humanities from the University of Colorado and a Master's degree in Computer Science from Denver University (Colorado). After consulting to small insurance businesses, he was an applied mathematician on several national intelligence programs that required employees to hold an (above) Top Secret security clearance. In the 1970s, he earned a Master's degree in mathematics from Denver University and a Bachelor's degree (majoring in both mathematics and philosophy) from Metropolitan State College (now University) of Denver (Colorado). In 1968, he left South Denver (Colorado) High School without a diploma.
