Are you an avid reader?

While I wasn't into reading books in high school, I've matured a lot since then and read voraciously now, probably an equal mix of fiction and nonfiction. I am not a reader anymore.
I only had a small window when I was.
I have a juicy case of ADHD and concentrating without meds is near impossible.
But there was a time right after I got on my ADHD meds where I found out I could read.
I read everything I could get my hands on.
I read the dictionary, a Psychology book, the Bible and everything in between.
I was a reading fool for about two years.
Then it faded and I am back to looking at the pictures again. Not anymore but many years ago I used to haunt used book stores. I get through around 50 ebooks a month. Thank goodness for sites like smashwords as I couldn't afford to but them all.
I could read all day. I'd say an avid reader is someone whose main hobby is reading, and they do so frequently. I was avid reader from kindergarten, all the way up until college. A good deal of my free time (which was a lot, since I was a shy introvert) was devoted to reading. A few of my classmates assumed all I did was read, but considering my options of pulling my head out of an enthralling book consisted of being largely mocked or ignored by them, the book was preferable.
I don't think speed reading or the number of books you read has anything to do with it. I'd also argue that what you read doesn't really matter. I'd consider "well-read" to imply someone that has read a lot of the classics and what not, but someone could still be an avid reader by reading only fantasy novels or mysteries or so on. It just comes down to truly enjoying reading; if you find yourself looking forward to the chance to read and consider it a fun hobby, you're an avid reader in my book. I saw something a while ago in the Huffington Post that took a poll and found iirc over 25% of people hadn't read a book in a year... That's sad to me.
Never liked reading all that much until college when I found some fiction that really grabbed me. After that I discovered that my tastes and my Mom's overlap and I can always pick up a book or two when I visit. Maybe half of my reading is books she's finished. I'm an avid reader. When I was in kindergarden and first I was often ahead of the class in whatever we were learning, and aparenrly it made the other kids feel bad. They offered to let me skip two grades but my mom said no. So my teachers just stuck me in the back of the room with books and art supplies. This period in my life gave birth to my love of reading and drawing.

What is the lowest you have ever been in your life and how did you recover from it?

Lowest I've been was when my first relationship ended and left me crushed. I couldn't eat, sleep or go to work. What helped me was going to therapy, but basically I think it was just time and taking it step by step. I think just doing really slow progress is something and one day you will see yourself over the hurdle.
Me and my then wife were arguing as usual (well, I was listening) on the way to a birthday and it was like she held her breath when stepping out of the car and continued on when we got back in. That's when I really felt the most shitty in that time I think. Nobody could know anything was wrong and to the outside we had to have 'the perfect marriage'.
Now! Struggling to deal with all the emotions I'm feeling. Never dealt properly with my dad's death which happened years ago. Broke up with the guy I thought I was going to marry and spend the rest of my life with. Had 2 deaths in the family in the last 6 months. And I don't want to leave the house.
When I got expelled from school my senior year. Everything turned out fine though, still got my diploma the same time i would have, and was able to work full time all year. Take summer school kids!! It turned out i only needed 3 classes to graduate, and took them at night school no problem.
Massively depressed. Always tired but couldn't sleep. Consumed with negative and destructive thoughts. I was still going to work; but had been avoiding all other social contact. Struggling with an terrible medical diagnosis........One day I woke up and realized that I had to do something. I called my primary care doc and she referred me to the Psychology department at a local university. It was affordable because I was mainly working with doctoral students. They did testing and months of counseling. It may not work for everyone; but it saved my life. Asking for help was the hardest part.
Turns out the entire encounter was to make me let my guard down, giving her time to off herself. Kinda fucked me up a little, and I had myself hospitalized a week later, after I had spent a long night getting hammered as an alternative to following her example. How did I get over it? I never really did. Still get depressed, stressed, angry, but I've managed to find that bit of rebellious spark that is just too stubborn to quit. The part of me that refuses to let go because I will not take the bullshit way out.
When I was in grade 8, only had 2 friends, I was in my room playing minecraft by myself and I felt so depressed, I almost had a breakdown because the girl I liked along with a bunch of my classmates were at a dance and I knew I was missing out, I cried myself to sleep that night, and for some reason when I woke up the next morning I was so happy, I had an overwhelming amount of happiness. I never felt that bad again as I did in grade 8 but I still don't know why I got that happy.

What's your definition of insanity? 🌚

MinhalBaloch’s Profile Photoمحمد منہال
I think the exact definition of insanity is "doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result".
Obviously i'm not professional in this field,not even the student of psychology but according to me... insanity is a legal term, not a medical term. it refers to a person who is exceedingly mentally ill or intellectually disabled that he/she can't tell the difference between right vs wrong.

What's the most interesting part of practicing psychology??

mhansariii’s Profile PhotoVagabond
It's odd how quickly one adapts to the strange new world, a psychiatric unit. All the realities, drama, pain, happiness, emptiness, unrealistic and realistic thoughts of life, about life. You become increasingly comfortable with the madness and not just the madness of others but your own. We all are crazy,
I believe just in different ways.

Did you ever feel lost in your life? If yes, how did you do? What did you do?

Yes. I didn't expect or plan for the life as a blind. When my vision worsened a few years ago (with 30% vision left), I realized that everything that I've worked for thus far went down the drain, in a blink of an eye. I had an ideal life pathway in mind - complete Junior College, attain a Bachelors degree, venture into the teaching profession and settle down. Gone were my dreams, in the passing wind. I experienced hypersomnia and cried all day, for months, not sure of what to do. Eventually, I completed college but varely scraped through. Sent applications to Universities but all were turned down. Decided to apply for jobs with the local disabilities organization but had no luck due to lacking skill sets. However, the assessors suggested social-related, namely counselling, may be a fitting path for me. Spent months on research and planned another ideal pathway - attain a Polytechnic Diploma in Psychology Studies, complete a relevant Bachelors degree and venture into the helping field. Applied for a short filler course on Child Psychology but upon the director's realistic advice, I decided to take on another pathway - attain private part-time Diploma/Advanced Diploma/Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling Psychology, apply for the Registered Counsellor title, work as a counsellor and complete Masters in Counselling. And it has been running its course well at the moment as I gain more skills on the side such as learning braille and operating screen readers.
Notably, I couldn't made it out alive without the support of my loved ones and my fellow visually-impaired community. I must say that I chose my friends well, they were patient and understanding, willing to walk the journey with me. At that point, it was the catalyst for me to return to God and faith. I believe that my sight was taken for a reason and I have found it. I have found my true purpose in life and learnt to tame my ego/arrogance into humility. Indeed, I was once a bully, in the psychological sense, and looked down upon those below me. God pulled the rug from under me and showed me otherwise.
Morals?
1. Life has no fixed roads.
2.Grab onto anything that comes by for it may be your lifeline.
3. Never judge or play with pride for we are unique and strong in our own ways.
4. Be grateful of every blessing and think positive.

What subject could you teach a college course on? What would be the title of the course, and what units would you cover?

AdrianaRafaela98’s Profile PhotoAdriianna Rafaella
Subject: the psychology behind looseness & social behaviors.
Title: How Not To Not Have A Loose Anoose.
It would break down the many different variations of how a persons anoose can become very loose & what behaviors to watch out for if you would not want such a person in your life. I would teach good social behaviors/characteristics so people will not fall prey to extreme looseness.

Psychology says, “the more loving you are, the more painful it feels when a person fails to realize how much you care for them." Can you explain in your own thought and idea?

I feel like that could be true because the person who was being loving/caring probably felt like they were doing their best to show it but if someone doesn’t notice it, they must feel like they are doing something wrong or being taken advantage of or under appreciated. 😔

Psychology says, “the more loving you are, the more painful it feels when a person fails to realize how much you care for them." Can you explain in your own thought and idea?

That figures, for sure. It would cut deep into our self worth, making you question why said person can’t reciprocate the feelings that you have for them, is there something wrong with me/am I that unlovable, etc. Rejection always hurts most when it comes from those you care about, as it’s not as easy to deflect in comparison from someone you hardly know, or a stranger. That could bounce off in comparison, if your inner core is pretty strong.
It would be saddening for sure, to not be acknowledged in what you may do for the other person, or to be shut down, in a sense. Regardless of the type of relationship/friendship, the feeling of being made to not feel good enough is always painful. I guess you just gotta keep on truckin’, look after and prioritise your own well-being, and keep pushing forward :)

What’s the most interesting thing about your current career path?

Was ist das Interessanteste an Ihrem aktuellen Karriereweg?
Mein Weg war etwas ungewöhnlich. Ich habe etwas Zeit gebraucht, um meine berufliche Erfüllung zu finden. Mein Weg führte mich über die Betriebswirtschaftslehre und Psychologie hin zur Medizin. Erst in der Medizin habe ich meine Erfüllung gefunden. Wie es dazu kam, habe ich an anderer Stelle ausführlich beschrieben.
Mein Leben durchlief mehrere tiefgreifende Phasen. Die Militärzeit nahm eine besondere Stellung ein, denn sie ließ mich zweifeln und hoffen. Zeigte mir irgendwie den Weg, weg von Destruktion und Verzweiflung, hin zu dem, was ich in der Lage bin, an Gutem zu bewegen. Hinzu kam die unbändige Lust, mehr zu lernen, vielschichtiger zu denken. Jetzt stehe ich da, wo ich hingehöre. Ich diene! Nicht einer zerstörerischen Idee, sondern dem, was mir wirklich wichtig ist. Dem Leben!
My path was a bit unusual. It took me some time to find my professional fulfilment. My path led me through business administration and psychology to medicine. It was only in medicine that I found my fulfilment. I have described in detail elsewhere how this came about.
My life went through several profound stations. The military period took a special position, because it made me doubt and hope. Kind of showed me the way, away from destruction and despair, towards what I am able to move in good. In addition, there was the unbridled desire to learn more, to think more complexly. Now I stand where I belong. I serve! Not a destructive idea, but what is really important to me. Life!

Is there a field / subject you're especially knowledgable about? You mind saying something you know relating to that which you think most other people don't know? 🧠🤯

TobbeAsks’s Profile PhotoTobbe
True crime! I'm very much into the psychology behind it as well as several different kinds of true crime cases. A fact that many seem to be unware of is that psychopathy and sociopathy are not actually up-to-date terms or diagnoses. Or that mass murderers, spree kilelrs and serial killers are not the same thing (it's a huge pet peeve of mine when people confuse there terms tbh).

Why life has to be hard for some? but some of them just get by so easily?

There's nothing like that life is easy for some and hard for some.
It's just us humans and our psychology to judge everyone and believe what we see.
We see someone smiling and believing it's true and judge it on the same basis that this person's life is so easy or would be easy that's why the person is happy all the time. When the truth could be that the person is dying inside BUT fighting alone.
And we see someone doing something really difficult and believing that the person is living a hard life and so brave to even do that. When the truth could be that this person finds that task really easy and was trained fully for that task.
Sometimes yeah, it's hard and sometimes easy. But that needs to be done and balanced in our life. If it was always easy how would we be able to value the easy lives we were living? That's why sometimes it's hard, so that we value the good and easy times in our lives we lived. Otherwise we would take that easy life for granted. It's not going to be always hard, and similarly it's not going to be always easy.
And also it's good that sometimes it's hard for you or for anyone, cause a person who falls and gets back is much more stronger than a person who never fell.
FIGHT THROUGH IT, NEVER GIVE UP. YOU'RE GETTING STRONGER!
You may think sometimes that life is getting harder because you see someone else's been living a easy life. And that's human nature, we are never satisfied with ourselves. But you should not forget that maybe this person you saw might be be living a easy life which you crave for and find your life hard when infact there are people who are having worse and harder life than you and finding you as been living a easy life.
So, I would suggest whatever it is, appreciate it before that moment is gone, enjoy that moment, enjoy your life. If you have roof to cover you up, food to eat, clothes to wear, water to drink and parents to love you & care for you then
.... To be continued

Why life has to be hard for some but some of them just get by so easily

Again, stfu with your amateur psychology. stop diagnosing “everybody”. It’s embarrassing at best and harmful at most.

But that's the thing - I'm not diagnosing anyone. I didn't mention diagnosis. You can go to therapy for general life issues, such as divorce, work stress, pregnancy, etc., and it can be a preventative measure for developing a disorder. You can have stress and mental health issues without meeting criteria for a specific disorder. Also, a basic therapist cannot diagnose people with mental illnesses or prescribe medication - that is the role of a psychologist or psychiatrist - so when I (and many actual therapists, so I'm just passing on their advice) recommend therapy, I'm not necessarily recommending mental health professionals who can diagnose mental illnesses, but mental health professionals who have the expertise to assist their patients with navigating particular stressors in their lives.
Assuming every mental health professional only works within the scope of mental illnesses is *actually* what's embarassing and harmful, here. It's this attitude that deters people from seeking help because it hasn't escalated into a full-blown crisis yet, which may be dangerous for them and potentially the people around them.

Do you know psychology or ever studied it?

I primarily studied Music and Electronic Engineering, but most of my electives were either Psychology or History. I grew up in an abusive home where expressions of love were not encouraged or observed. This resulted in dysfunctional behaviors between siblings (jealousy, envy, lying, cheating, gossip, etc) and animosity between parent and child. Because I was adversely affected by this abnormal behavior, I decided to study childhood psychology, adolescent psychology and abnormal psychology to better understand the reality that I was experiencing and attempting to understand.

Does toxic masculinity extend into so many women psychologically craving to be treated badly?

If you want to talk psychology, that issue isn't about "women *wanting* to be treated badly". Girls and women are a social group who have faced a lot of trauma in the way of abuse, neglect, and r*pe in childhood. (Not to say they are the only ones who do, but they're the only ones whose motives have been called into question here, so that's what I'm gonna talk about). When a person experiences those things - especially in early childhood, which unfortunately a lot of women do - it is highly likely they will develop one of three insecure attachment style. In this context, women who have developed a pattern of toxic relationships in adulthood tend to have either an anxious attachment style or a disorganised attachment style.
With an anxious attachment style, a person will look for an identity and meaning in other people and will fear abandonment, leading to clinginess - even when the person they're clinging onto are all sorts of wrong for them. With a disorganised attachment style, a person both craves and is fearful of love and relationships, and safety within a relationship might feel threatening because it's a) alien and b) you're waiting for the other shoe to drop, so continuing the cycle of victimisation might feel more predictable and therefore safe.
The perception that "women want to be treated badly" hinges upon misogyny and a lack of awareness of how trauma from a young age alters the brain. I'd recommend educating yourself before making such awful, harmful claims.

Why people make opinion about a person from his/her appearance ?

waleedbutt465’s Profile Photoولید بٹ
Appearance matters. It’s the first thing you come in contact with, before knowing the person. Some people look like something, you just wanna stay away from and vice versa. Men who wear jewellery or have long hair that are in a bun or ponytail, they look gross. 🤷🏻‍♀️ They might be nice but I kid you not, majority wouldn’t even bother to know. How you carry yourself will have some sort of impact on the people maybe less or more thou it’s not a valid criteria to judge a person. 🤷🏻‍♀️ It’s basic psychology. Although people aren’t food but you’re less likely to eat what doesn’t look good. Pretty much all brands have the colour red in their logos (more or less) which is likely to induce hunger. 🤷🏻‍♀️ We don’t even buy the stuff we don’t like the look of, be it anything literally. Humans are much more than what they look like but you can’t say it doesn’t matter because it does! 🤷🏻‍♀️

Are you self conscious about your looks and the way you present yourself to others?

I find that when I'm deep in thought I have a look on my face that apparently concerns people, or makes them think I'm angry or upset. I've even been asked if I'm schizophrenic (I'm not, to my knowledge). I do tend to stare off into space intensely. Sometimes I don't realize I'm staring AT someone and they get mad, but I've mostly learned to be more careful about that as I've gotten older. I've found that carrying a book, a notebook, or some knitting allows me to let my mind wander while having something that it appears I'm focusing on to keep people from asking me too many questions.
When l took a picture, l cringed. I look back at those moments and l realize l wasn't so bad after all. Partly is having someone who constantly put me down in my early years and also my focus on flaws. My strengths were the check lists like OK, that covered. What's the next weakness l need to work on?
I went through a sudden sickness where l literally looked many decades older. Like grandpas were hitting on me thinking l was their peer during my sickness. I was at my worst, look wise. The sudden change in looks also showed how shallow people are. They treated me differently, shoved me away fast. It was almost a blessing to see the contrast as l generally was used to people treating me very nicely. I can see why some turn bitter and claim it's not fair. I did have it easy at one point. I recieved extra help and favors at times without asking.
Yes, very. I worry that because I'm so reserved, my body language comes across as cold and unfriendly. I'm also really prone to getting lost in my thoughts, and when I do that I get resting concerned face. I'm not ugly but not particularly amazing looking either, but I've learned through the years how to work with what I've got and that has helped a lot with people's opinion of me. Its a tough lesson I've learned but presentation really is everything if you care about what people think of you. Dress well, stand with good open posture, work out till you have a defined jawline, wear clothes that are classy and show subtle wealth. If you are a woman, wear a little bit of makeup. Psychology says you are respected more unconsciously by others if you do these things.
At the moment I'm trying to overcome it by making sport regularly and through positive self talk. But it's so hard for me to work it out. There are days where all of the sudden I feel so ashamed to be me and it makes me sad beyond words. But I thinkt it's worth the effort to overcome it. Everything is connected...the attitude you represent towards yourself mirrors in the attitude other people have of you.

What is the biggest regret of your youth?

I wish I took the opportunity to study abroad while I was in college instead of working all the time. I don't know if I necessarily regret it since my working has allowed me more advances/opportunities in my career than my peers (and now I can travel whenever I want), but there's something about experiencing another culture while studying that's deeper than just visiting.
Not learning another language. There was an option in highschool where I could have taken half of my classes in Spanish. All of my friends who took that route still speak conversational Spanish. I just wanted more time to fuck around and to keep highschool super easy so I just took the required 3 language classes and didn't retain any of it. I now work in the medical field where 30-40% of my patients are Spanish speaking only and it seems much harder to learn and remember now then when I was younger. Also I love to travel to central America, and I have to rely on my spouse to translate in many places. It's just such a useful skill that opens so many doors.
I'm 20 and my biggest regret is ending my friendship with my childhood best friend. We had so much more than I realized in common and I threw it away over what I now realize is stupid reasoning - stuff that makes sense to a kid but isn't actually sound. I've never made another friend like him and struggle to make any friends at all; I miss the easy, weird friendship we had. I tried to message him on Facebook recently and he hasn't responded. I can't say I blame him. In his position I wouldn't talk to me either.
Going to college. I now work on the low rung in a factory. There are people who were making $30 an hour there at my age, and they're not much older than me. Plus, they rake in pay for their hours, while the college-grad suits in the office (the youngest of whom is in his early 50s) get salary and maybe a holiday bonus whether they work 30 hours a week or 60. Most of the longer-term blue-collar employees make a good bit more than management, and I could've started on that ladder when I was in high school and be fucking set right now, instead of being forced (under threat of being disowned by family) to go to college for an ultimately useless degree, and now i'm starting that blue-collar ladder at age 26. My parents told me not to pursue many careers I was very interested in, because yes they were right there isnt much positions out there for some of them for example conservation officer, but I have a lot of drive and potential in me so I believe if I set my mind to it I can get the career I want. I felt this way even back then but didnt follow my gut. Glad to see you're getting back after it and following your dream as well, I want to be a counselor so psychology is definitely where it's at.

What do you think of China's new policy of limiting online gaming to 3 hours per week for all children? Sensible precaution to limit gaming addiction, or nanny state?

jigsaw20216838’s Profile PhotoJigsaw
We need some more details. I can’t see how it could be policed for a starter. But for children of up to, say ten years, yes I’m all for it. Their eyesight would benefit, probably their imagination and literacy skills too. In fact I expect there are heaps of other benefits in terms of general education and psychology and just teaching kids to make their own entertainment and not rely on technology to be their support system. I’m not saying kids don’t learn anything from gaming, but it’s probably not the kind of skill they can’t pick up later on, once they’ve had a more “normal” childhood.
That said, I can also see that for some parents gaming is used as a childminder. Kids are less likely to get into trouble when they’re glued to their tablets or phones or whatever. And if that’s what the parents have to do, I wouldn’t blame them although it’s a shame if they aren’t learning how to interact with real humans. Better than hanging around, drinking cider and smoking- for teenagers. Maybe for single children gaming and the social side of it can be a substitute for having siblings, I don’t know.
You see toddlers transfixed by their parents’ iPhones in supermarkets so goodness knows what they’re allowed to get up to at home. I don’t like to think about how much time the typical child of say eleven or twelve spends gawking at screens. It’s a balance thing. And when I see really young kids with their tablets and phones and so on, I really think it must say something about how much time their parents want to spend with them. If you have parent(s) who are already addicted to gaming then they’re naturally going to give their kids greater access to gaming. Which to my mind equates to only half a childhood. So on balance, yes, go China! I wouldn’t have a problem with it. I think any responsible parent knows they need to limit the time their kids spend online and gaming is just one element of that.

270. Kam byste mohli obrátit svou energii, kdyby vás nedrtil strach ze samoty? #B

Bunneyx’s Profile Photo#Bunney
Ten strach mě žere zaživa dennodenně, ale stejně jsem se mu postavila. Stejně se nad ním snažím vyzrát.
Dávám veškerou energii jen a pouze tomu, co mám ráda.
Sama sobě, kočkám, domovu, kamarádům, rodině a hlavně sama sobě.
Zkouším se postavit na vlastní nohy, naučit se jak funguju a poznat své hranice.
Nikdy jsem nezažila nic tak těžkého, ale jsem sama a užívám si to, dýchám, nepřežívám ze dne na den jako dřív, už žiju, uvědomuju si každičkou vteřinu, kterou prožiju. Jsem vděčná za lidi, co mám kolem sebe, protože bych to bez nich horko těžko zvládala, jsem šťastná za Rudu a Ríšu, že mi dělají psychology a jsem šťastná, že jsem sama doma. Že je to moje místo, kde jsem pánem domu já a rozjoduju o všem, nemusím brát na nikoho ohledy, mám svůj klid a svoji obrovskou dávku soukromí.
Doprdele tohle období je v mým životě nejtěžší, nikdy jsem nic horšího nezažívala. Ale zároveň si ho užívám jako nic před tím.
Je to paradox života, protože se díky ohromné bolesti jsem si stále vědoma toho, že jsem naživu. A to už tu dlpuho nebylo.
Jsem sama, jsem na to hrdá, užívám si to, ale kurva to bolí.
Ten strach je na tom všem ale úplně nejhorší.
A tak svou energii zaměřuji na jeho překonání.

Is it true that existence is suffering?

AhmadBakheitMndo’s Profile Photo∆HMED
“To live is to suffer, to survive is to find some meaning in the suffering.” ―Friedrich Nietzsche.
Many religions teach and expect people to accept life as a painfully intricate form of existence, and convince them of rewards in the afterlife; they're expected to deal with the cruelty of life, be civil, and await their rewards. This further acts as proof that suffering is immanent. Even in pleasure there is suffering, because we know that eventually good things come to an end. So ask yourself this: If existence is suffering, why do we exist? This is a highly controversial subject as it's observed from different perspectives (philosophy,religion,sociology,biology, psychology, etc).
Just by being alive, suffering is a given.
Understanding the basics and methods that often occur in a cycle due to behaviors and mindsets, we can be persistent in our efforts to end suffering.
Back to the question of why we exist. We are born with the freedom of choice. Not comprehending that you have a choice isn't really a choice. You have the choice to suffer, cease suffering, avoid it, or lessen its impact. Having to react to everything shows you have no grasp on reality. Once it's been realized, then you wouldn't have to react out of habit and that's when you have the choice.
Suffering relies on your actions as well and not solely on existence. Suffering is just an integral part of it. With attachment comes suffering so there are two ways to handle it: Either escape actions and responsibilities, detach yourself from the world, live far away and have your sufferings lessened OR appreciate and embrace the suffering.. experience the heavenly brilliance that despite all the chances of letting you and your world get destroyed in countless ways, someone is letting you live and making you realize your purpose.

"Human Nature" by Nico, Photography by Mahdi Bafande
Since human nature is comprised of multiple academic and scientific disciplines that interact with each other, psychology, philosophy and biology would need to be researched and understood before questions related to human nature can be answered with confidence.

Honestly, this might seem like a copout, but I'm going to say all three. They are separate entities in and of themselves. However, they are all intertwined, related and ingrained into our DNA. How were "wired". In order to study human nature, one MUST look at all, but not limited to the three sciences listed in your question. For example, there are certain characteristics which can help mark or "finger" who might be a good candidate to be a serial killer. Based on case history, serial killers fit a MO. Generally, this gets into Psychology, some to do with Biology, and one can even argue, Biology, as most serial killers tend to be Caucasian males, and so on and so on. We could discuss this for hours! But, for as a simple an answer as I can give, yes, all three. I would live to discuss this in more detail.

Humanity- race we are all part of regardless of registration, we are auto-enrolled at gestation, take our marks at birth, get set for this perfect life we have envisioned in our mind, and then it's gone before it even starts. That tells us that it's not always about the destination or the finish line, it's about how you get there... it's about the path you choose, the steps you take to get there, the people you meet along your way

She loves the idea of not using a car as she is incredibly health conscious. Her partner will be doing psychology their also 🙂

Is there a field / subject you're especially knowledgable about? You mind saying something you know relating to that which you think most other people don't know? 🧠🤯

Rather than one specific subject I'm now mostly knowledgeable about a wide field of topics. There are a lot of people in my daily life hitting me up on anything they have questions about.
I was once indeed quite knowledgeable about clinical psychology, especially about forensics. I spent my whole teenage years gaining knowledge about that and finally started attending university, so of course I would know a lot other people didn't know. But regarding this topic many people think they can be experts since it's just "in our heads", so the gap between me and other people became a lot more noticeable to me than it may would've had if I studied something else.
But, now the sad news, I'm not longer into recent research. Of course I know what I once learned (but I forgot a most technical terms) yet this field is developing so fast, one have to constantly educate themself further to catch up.
But here we are, what's something people may don't know till today?
Oh, I won't stop talking about how dangerous MBTI is. In general, psychological tests have a lot of requirements to give a valid result.
Oh, and maybe a really basic one: You all for sure know this joke "Oh, someone's a psychologist, they're constantly trying to analyze me!" - in fact, it works nothing like that. First, not every psychologist is interested and works with people in front of them (advertising for example is a field where psychologists are working in), furthermore not every psychologist is a clinical psychologist (that are the ones interested in mental health and stuff), not every clinical psychologist is a therapist!!! and finally, psychological diagnosis is a field with one basic rule: There is a question and you try to find the answer. Exactly, it has to be ONE question. And the question has to be relevant. If there is no problem or relevant topic for the individual or their surroundings, it's absolutely uninteresting for psychologists. So as long as there is no diagnostic topic that requires a diagnosis (that don't has to be in a medical way), if the psychologist in front of you starts "analyzing" you, they're just the same presumptuous, invasive people all the others are who try to do that. The "results" are irrelevant either way. But most psychologists just want to have a normal chat with people around them and don't want to think about work, haha.

I think it's hard to compare yourself with people you don't know.
I only can tell that I have certain fields that I take interest in, therefore I know something about them, but I couldn't tell if I am an expert in it, because there are always people who know some more about it.
But to make a shortlist:
╰ astrology/astronomy
╰ media sciences + design
∟ [ games/movies/series/books/comics/manga/anime ]
╰ nature/ climate change
╰ psychology
∟ [ toxic & abusive behaviour | narcissism ]

Как быть, если ты при знакомстве с новым человеком уже не так открываешься людям из-за неудач в прошлом?(Артем )

🇷🇺 Мне это знакомо, поэтому прежде чем выйти из этого состояния моя тетя помогла мне, посоветовав мне пройти курс по психологии общения‼️
Я ходила и восстанавливала себя после большого разочарования в общении и в доверии людям‼️ Если бы не моя семья, то я сейчас бы с вами не разговаривала и тут не сидела бы☝🏻‼️
Мне это помогло, очень‼️
P.S. Подозрения нарастают‼️
🇺🇸 I am familiar with this‼️ That’s why before getting out of this state, my aunt helped me by advising me to take a course in the psychology of communication‼️
I went and restored myself after a big disappointment in communication and in trusting people‼️ If it wasn't for my family, I wouldn't be talking to you right now and I wouldn't be sitting here☝🏻‼️
It helped me a lot‼️
P.S. Suspicions are growing‼️
