    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...

    The Difference

    Philosophy and psychology.... They are studying different things, but why are they so similar? Could it be because people are codependent, and require the happiness of someone else, to be happy? Therefore, understanding why, not only, how people reach happiness, is the key to...

    Dangerous Knowledge

    I'm a firm believer in truth and self-knowledge. Emerssing myself in the understanding of human behavior and pscho-anylasis over the years has exposed allot of facts about humanity that is so terrible and devious, that most people aren't aware of these problems, because the truth...

    One day when I was at work.

    I started to think of the many people who loved me and genuinely enjoyed my company and that at least ONE person in the WORLD wished they could be with me RIGHT NOW (even if I did not know who:). Then instantly I realized how LUCKY I am to ALWAYS be stuck with ME.

    Your thoughts and memories are more valuable than gold, because, if it's gold you desire, it's going to take your thoughts to get it.

    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...

    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.
