    "Often men who have been emotionally neglected

    and abused as children by dominating mothers bond with assertive women, only to have their childhood feelings of being engulfed surface. While they could not 'smash their mommy' and still receive love, they find that they can engage in intimate violence with partners who respond...

    You know what's ironic?

    We have the best brains of all animal species on earth, yet we're so easily tricked. Psychology is used all around us. Like pricing something 99,99 instead of 100 to make it feel cheaper, or grocery stores putting bread and cheese so far apart, so you have to traverse the whole...

    Have you ever woken up

    and just knew it was going to be a bad day? Sure enough, you stub your toe, people at work seem to be in a bad mood, and negative things just seem to happen. If so, you were likely experiencing a self-fulfilling prophecy. A self-fulfilling prophecy is when a person unknowingly...

    I'm reading a book at the moment called.

    Sex, murder and the meaning of life, if you are just starting, that would be a good book to give you a kickstart.

    Splitting Personality

    I've been meaning to make an attempt to explain the single most amazing experience in my life. 11/25-26/2011 was a rather interesting time for me and I'm not exactly sure what happened.  I spent the preceding days in a state of catatonic depression. Feeling hopeless and...

    Psychology is really flawed.

    It gives people excuses to vilify each other and themselves, it tries to label and put boxes around everyone and everything. It gives us excuses to sit still, or to be a jerk to people. But it also gives us tools for moving forward, and helping people. It's flawed - but I also...

    I have always been somewhat intrigued by the

    human mind, but my real interest started when I got severely depressed among other things and wanted to find out what the hell was wrong with me. It is a pretty common reason, really. I had a psych professor that at the end of the year told us that all of it is BS because of the...

    "We must commit to learning from our mistakes

    instead of agonizing over them, or we're destined to repeat our errors in the future. When you temporarily run aground, remember that there are no failures in life. There are only results."

    Mostly the journey into the deep subconscious

    rather than any form of brain development or any more 'traditional' fields of Psychology. I find myself a lot more comfortable using strange words (Shadows, Neuroticisms, etc.) rather than jumping straight to the point. I've always been a closed person, so this is a better way...

    you ever heard of Sylvia Plath? She wrote 'the bell jar' (1963) 'Ariel' (1966), she wrote others too but those were her most successful pieces. She was born in 1932, and died in 1963. She would have been considered perfectly normal until she was 8 years old when her father died...

    I've always liked psychology

    because it's really only a bunch of theories and observations that people came up with and are trying to make sense of human behavior.

    There is nothing that will take the pain away,

    but eventually you will find a way to live with it, there will be nightmares and everyday that you wake up it will be the first thing on your mind until one day it will be the second thing

    The mind is a fascinating thing,

    and when you get deep into the science of it, it basically creates our entire reality, from the metaphysical to even the physical. I've always had an interest in it and I love delving into the intricacies of it, although I have been giving it a break lately.
