    I'm currently in 9th grade.

    I take high school seriously because I've seen people on my Facebook who didn't really succeed in high school, and wish they had done better. I want to have a bright future when I get older & I want to be the best that I can. I'm not an over achiever but I just try to aim for...

    The Good Samaritan Experiment Most people,

    in the Western and Middle Eastern worlds, understand the story of the Good Samaritan, and how it relates to helping behaviour. In this famous parable, a Rabbi and a Levite ignore an injured man and pass by, with a Samaritan being the only one to stop and help. In the modern...

    The brain is an amazing organ

    but the mind is what I'm interested in. Mind over matter. You can physically change things with your mind. You can make things go away and appear with in it. Most people even create their own problems because they can not handle the power of their own mind. I want to be able to...

    I want to help people. The same way, I was helped. I want to apply what I have learned, in therapy, and share it with others. The brain is such a fascinating thing. And to study more on how the brain works, would be a dream come true for me. I can't wait to attend school, so...

    Psychology has always interested me.

    It all started when I realized I had ADD. I wonder why does my brain not like me concentrate on things, not let me sit still or fidget, or speak before I think. I, also, always wondered why I am so overly laid back on things, timid, and care more about other than my own self...

    Instead of getting even

    or teaching someone a lesson when they do you wrong, consider teaching yourself a lesson instead. Revenge keeps you psychically connected to another in a negative way. Release yourself through the liberating act of forgiveness, and learn a truly valuable spiritual lesson.

    So Fascinating

    I've had a passion for psychology since I was 11. I stumbled across a psychology website one day and my mind was just blown at how fascinating it is. The human mind is so unlike the body, that it can't be directly observed. It's so mysterious. It's scary sometimes, but it's...
