Probably the most bullshit field of study besides liberal arts, pyschology is the field of study of the human mind and how it works(?) The whole study ignores a thing called logic. Since you cannot disect the human brain and study it, idiot scientists pull assumptions out of their asses without backing up their theories. They do this so they can diagnose "freaks" and "abnormal." 99% of assholes who take these class do it to be cool and not look like an idiot when infact it's the complete opposite. People who become pyschologist are assholes who like to diagnosed people who are 'abnormal' so they can pay off their Lexus payments and finish buying that gold yacht.
What really pisses me off about pyschology is that it implies on how everyone should act in some bullshit social set of standards otherwise you have some sort of disorder. Nevermind the fact that there is a thing called disagreements, emotions, and doing what you like. So the whole thing just spews of contradicting bullshit.
I like to be alone and have my own space therefore I have Asperger's Syndrome and Social Anxiety Disorder, what? Oh yea I also am Bi-Polar because when I get pissed off and I don't hold it back. I have ADHD because stuff that I don't like bores me so I don't care much for it.
A typical psychology case: A mother is bringing in her 8 year old daughter because she doesn't like school(who does?). The doctor is a Hindu fresh graduate who just graduated in an online course and can hardly speak English. God knows why he got a job at a health center.
*Doctor looks over new charts after mom writes some bullshit*
Quack: So you can't get along in school and you don't like being there?
Girl: No, school is boring and the other kids are mean to me because I'm the one of the three girls in my class.
Quack: Do you feel down and depressed, do you drink or smoke at all?
*After a half-hour of nonsensicle questions, the doctor automatically she knows the girl like shes a father and prescribes the little girl with 2 different medicines, one is for seizures(yes for my 'bi-polar' I have been prescribed seizure medicines).*
I love how the doctor automatically assumes that she knows how the girl works and prescribes her useless medications.
Psychology is everyone's major at some point during their college career.
Me: What are you majoring in? (Dont you dare say psychology)
Random Person: Psychology.
Me: OOOOH exciting.
The study of human thought and behaviour. A social scientific subject which can trace its origins back to ancient Greece.
Psychology, psychiatry and psychotherapy are all different.
It's an interesting class to take for a semester, but anyone that majors in it is really just trying to figure themselves out. All the people with psych degrees are usually the most messed up, they think the more they learn the more they might figure out their own problems. Then they graduate, and tell other people whats wrong with them...it's healthy, I swear
Jack: How is your semester going?
Jill: It's so stressful, I have started throwing up all my food again, and I hate my family, and I hear voices, and I think I might have the ugliest nose on the continental United States.
Jack: What's your major?
Jill: Psychology! I'm going to help people someday!
The section of Borders bookstore where all the porn is hidden, believe it or not.
Dude, have you been the psychology section before? There's a whole wall of erotica in there! You've GOT to check it out!
An interesting discipline no doubt, but not without its share of problems. For more on those, see psychologist
Psychology is good, psychologists are bad.
The practice of taking things we already know about people, and weighing it down with jargon
until the only other people who understand it are psychologists
"Psychology dictates that all juvenile humans grow to imitate the assertive role models around them, sparking a developmental response" (Kids grow up to be like their folks)
Mostly bullshit. Every time someone attempts to psychoanalyse me, they fail miserably.
Psychologist: I believe you punched that guy in the nose because you have deep issues of security and you felt threatened in your own envioronment. It had nothing to do with the fact that he kicked you in the balls.
