That awkward moment when Satan is making sense.
Witchcraft? Sounds reasonable
Every Psychologist has their head firmly shoved up their own ass. Psychology is bullsh!t.
@CocoasBro, some of them have PhDs 😂
@CocoasBro, as someone with a psych degree...how to say this.
I feel strongly on the following statements. I think it has a lot of useful information. I think they have helped and are helping a lot of people who have had serious problems. I think the field is coming to realize how shaky its foundations are and is changing rapidly.
In my opinion I think psychology is kinda where alchemy was RIGHT before they realized that it was foundationally flawed and split into chemistry and nonsense. Psychology is being informed by neurology, computers, breakthroughs in biology, and even understanding critically and scientifically the things that belief systems around the world are doing that are actually working (Ex: mindfulness exercises from Taoism I think; community centered lives from... every religion that meets weekly)
Psychology is a science, and the part of science people forget is the trial and error. The theories thought to be true until a better one comes along. Better is happening
@seeUpee, in Psychology lmao.
@Canis Arktos, Dude I just dont have respect for your profession.
@Canis Arktos, too many psychologists told him he's a nutcase, and now he is salty.
@ThePandaPool , "my sir, I'm no nutcase, I'm a knight of Antioch, here to slay the dragons that rain over these lands. Cast away your bounds dear word smith since they are sorcery. Tis it the who dare cast such aspirations. Such flagrant discharge of thy spell. I as much a nutcase as the a corpse. So come at me, for you have disgraced my honor, and my vow may not allow such a fool to live."
- the coocoo for coco puffs bro
@Canis Arktos, bro, one reason why people don't view psychiatrists credible, is explained by your overall statement.
It's a soft science that must be defended by emotional terms to creep through messages.
Do you find it a problem that you coated your entire message with "I feel" and "I think"? It is disingenuous for a conversational piece specifically because there is no refutation have something so fleeting as a feeling or a thought. So it's Shields your other words from criticism. When psychologies methods are reprehensible.
For specific notions there was a German guy that used psychology to give homeless boys to pedos as a form of foster care. His work agent on till roughly 2005'ish.
I'd need to read it again for detail. But the study was to see if giving kids to pedos is the good idea.
With him being a pedo him self he found it as a completely positive experience until his 13year old "boyfriend" killed him self. He went soon after, never publicly denouncing his field of study.
@CocoasBro, @That one lurker, I totally understand what you mean. That’s why it’s not my profession. I changed fields to physics and am happily employed there currently.
That said, I saw lives improve. I saw numerous people on the edge of despair employ techniques from and gain support from psychologists and they came to be much happier, better employed, and having better relationships with people around them. I saw it work. Learning about psych helped me get past some minor PTSD (undiagnosed but it checked the boxes) after a car accident. I knew it. I was frustrated but I had read about it and knew the steps to address it. I’ve seen it work for myself and for others. I’ve also seen patients leave care (I was never a therapist but I worked in a clinic) and they recovered or didn’t on their own.
Again, it’s far from perfect but a lot of people have devoted themselves to helping others. That’s noble even if the methods are less consistent than mixing coke and mentos.
@That one lurker,
There is a dark history for every field of science.
It should be blamed on the person who uses it as an excuse for justifying their evil.
Personally I feel that there is definitely a way to properly study the psych and eventually I we will find it.
@Canis Arktos, specifically talking about trauma I've had 4 near death incidences. But the only one that didn't involve water was a car accident.
Driver side colistion. I was accelerating from a stopped position and got rammed by a hummer with a metal grill.
I had nightmares for three weeks straight. Barly able to drive another car off the lot.
I personally felt weak, bitter, and slighted by this. The bad emotions hiding it self in fatigue and self-doubt.
So instead of seeing a psychiatrist, I picked up boxing. The only problem, it was 40 minutes away by car. So as I boxed for three months I self prescribed myself physical therapy and a gentle motivation to learn how to drive again.
I still can remember everything from that day, but it's drowned by the self improvement.
As for the reason why I did it in the first place, I confided in my father, and he motivated me pursue it.
I think half of all the problems pressing on the human psyche comes from lying and repression.
@Catman649, when did we stop using common sense?
Roughly around rationalism.
The scientific religion, that needs everything peer-reviewed before it becomes sacrosanct.
Human hands are never perfect so anything made from them will crumble and fall.
Specifically the morality that was attempted to be instilled in us at an early age.
Pedophiles, Rapists, Bigots, and animal abusers. Where are unspeakable evils.
But here we try to find the nuance in things. When pedo rapists are holding kids as personal sex slaves. While also getting paid by the government for it.
I'm sorry when has human experimentation been taken off the check list of evil people?
The man who conducted the experiments was a Marxist communist, who equivalate the worldview of Nazism, to his abusive homophobic father.
His psychology there in, is if the kid isn't insulated from gay activity, you'd destroy Nazism.
So he got state funding to let German pedos rape 6-14 year olds to stop Nazism.
@That one lurker,
I am not condoning these experiments
I am asking you to not loose hope in the field that these maniacs use to justify their evil.
My ideal of psychological study is the study of masses, the whole global movement explained through the integral of individual people.
@That one lurker, in your comment twords Canis to make a point against psychologists? Because what you did sounds like things that a good psychologist would have encouraged you to do, and not everyone would have the motivation to do it themselves without the push.
@ThePandaPool , why do you think Catholicism have a small booth you could go into. Talk to a person you can trust. Admit all of your misgivings to.
I was able to diagnose myself through introspection, and the design to improve. But I needed some one else's help. Help that psychiatrist sell, that my father gave me.
I feel pitty for any man that has no one like that in there life.
Psychiatrist are like friend hookers in that way.
A person that you pay to solve a problem you have. Even though in this modern world there's so many different online options that the notion is antiquated. But most of the time the reason why you'd go to one is that helptube or youhelp is getting dull.
It's 630am, I've gotten 2 hours at most of sleep. Typing away on my throne expelling demons at fifty word paragraphs. Talking about how psychiatrist are friend whores. I have an analogy a mile long. So have a great morning :D
@That one lurker, sorry dude. But religion as a replacement for any scientific method is a non starter for me. Gonna just drop the subject. Get some rest.
@Canis Arktos, yeah Im sure they have the incredible ability to be there for people to vent to and charge them a fortune to do it.
@That one lurker, btw how do you pick up boxing? Ive been wanting to do something like that but dont really know how to start.
@CocoasBro, I looked up a local boxing ring. The one i have here was luckily ran by an old featherweight.
@ThePandaPool , nah bro you misunderstand. Is the reverse, what I was saying about rationalism before. During the Enlightenment atheism saw a sharp climb. They started to form scientific Cults. One of them was rationalism, the founding principles were that everything can be explained in a rational measure through science.
So before psychology there was the church.
I believe through speculation and zero evidence that psychology was conceived to imitate what happened in confessional.
But, if I do remember my history. It involves Marxism through critical theory in some way. Which is the main reason I distrust the practice.
@That one lurker, did he train you? Is that to be expected? Id hate to get a membership just to go in there and make an ass out of myself. If no ones training me and theres no classes I might aswell just get a punching bag and save some money and pride.
@CocoasBro, I mean, you could go there, and then ask. If they say no then go to the next one on the list.
Obey or follow?
His name actually isn't Jesus btw.
@ericthegreat,how did you know about my name change?
