psychoconceptualism

In the context of labor, I say 'psychoconceptual' to mean both affective and intellectual. Walmart employs greeters as affective labor: seeing an actual human being smiling at you with a greeting generates an affect that a smiley face and recording could not - understanding that that actual human being is employed by Walmart may generate a less pleasant one. Researchers/teachers/analysts, people whose performances are affected by affects like anyone else, are employed as intellectual labor. Such researchers are responsible for increasing the maximum quality of life.

In the context of Theory of Mind, I use it to describe the bidirectional feedback between the biopsychological and purely conceptual minds (both of which must be included to accurately simulate what a mind is thinking) as well as the fact that affects are internal emotional responses to perceptions of situations.
