Construction of knowledge through cognitive negotiability takes place in the following ways:
- Information acquisition: Construction of knowledge takes place through the acquisition of new information. Based on the previous experiences of a learner, instructors impart new information to them so that new knowledge can be constructed. Hence, it included the acquisition of new knowledge, skills, behaviours, understanding, preferences, moral values, and attitudes.
- Decision Making: Decision making is referred to as a cognitive process which leads to the choice of a belief or an action that is chosen amongst various other options. Decision making can be rational or it can be irrational. Decision making is done through collecting information and assessing the various options that are available. This encourages construction of knowledge and involves cognitive negotiability.
- Choice of Strategies: The strategies and tactics one applies when involved in tactical knowledge is also a form of knowledge construction. Coming up with strategies requires a lot of thought, planning, research, and cognitive negotiability due to which boosts the construction of knowledge.
- Ability To Influence Emotions: One of the most important forms of cognitive negotiability is to have the ability to influence the emotions of other people and enable them to act in a certain way or take a certain decision which may benefit the individual. For instance, business owners are constantly trying to influence the shopping behaviour of their customers. This is a form of cognitive negotiability which adds to the construction of knowledge.
