Motor theories assume that the mind is not simply an information-processing organ, as the early cognitive therapists appear to have believed, but that it actively constructs reality through its interaction with incoming stimuli and its interpretation and classification of those stimuli, based on prior organizing cognitive constructs. Tacit knowledge consists of deep, abstract, unverbalized rules that organize an individual's perception of self and the world.
