Psychology is.. much more of a statistical science, this is true, but to say that it is mostly all untrue, is wrong. Be more specific.

Psychology 101 is not all true, infact very little of it is. The standard social science model which modern and classical psychology is based on, suffers from a serious of major logical defects in its underlying principles, that make the science as a whole, less than... well a science.

Its illogical, irrational, has little evidence and is just plain wrong in most cases. If anyone wants references to do the research themselves, i'll be glad to provide.

Sorry, but once again, the standard social science model, and standard psychology because of it, are BULLSHIT.


You're a scientologist, aren't you?

You can take issue with the methodologies and axioms of psychology without being a Scientologist.

Hi, I'm double-majoring in psychology and sociology. I may be in a convenient position to defend my bullshit.

If you could expand your lack of confidence in my fields of study through query, I would be more than happy to answer questions about the practice.

Despite the bias I will probably manifest ('not thinking that it is bullshit') perhaps I can expand an understanding of the social sciences.

How do you know all this rm? What are you basing it on? I thought the whole boundary between consciousness and unconciousness was a lot more vague and complicated than being "divided into conscious and unconscious layers"


I don't claim to be an expert on the subject, or hold popular and/or academic views on the matter. I glean my information from many sources (not the least of which is my imagination) and then argue my points as if they were fact. blame my subconscious. anyway, yeah, it's more complicated than what I made it out to be in that statement. no argument there. I guess I was just trying to make a simple point in a simple way so that iscarot could understand it.
