Studying psych here - self-diagnosis is actually kind of dangerous; a lot of these issues are fairly complicated, and there can be a few sort-of similar outward signs that trace back to drastically different problems! It's more than likely to be mis-diagnosis, which leads to seeking the wrong care and treatment (if any), or trivializing people who actually have the disorders via "I self-diagnosed this and it doesn't work that way". It hurts you and hurts others.

Thank you. This is exactly what we try to tell a lot of people.

sure was cold last night. good thing we had trash to burn for warmth

While I disapprove of book burning in general, in this case…

This is a book by Christina Hoff Sommers, a woman who has been involved in feminism and feminist academia her entire life. She is a feminist. This book talks about the bias against boys in school (for example: boys are more likely to drop out and greatly lag when it comes to literacy).

Also the minute you start to support book burning, congratulations, you are now an oppressive and authoritarian group.

Do you ever think, like putting aside all the Tumblr bullshit and the obsession with gender politics on this website alone, do you ever just look at people like this and feel confused about how they live their life.

Like this person is so obsessed in whatever ignorant mindset they hold that they saw this book and immediately set in motion a series of events for their entire day where they would buy this book and ensure their camera is charged. They would then rip it up, while taking photos and light it on fire and put it into a fire smiling and put it on the internet. They planned out this entire thing.

This isn’t Mein Kampf.

This isn’t some controversial book calling for the extermination of a gender or euthanasia. 

It’s literally some mild critique by a feminist about how dodgy policies from over-zealous feminism can end up harming people rather than helping.

This person is so wrapped up in whatever self-righteousness they possess and so desperate for the approval of whatever circle they’re in on Tumblr that they decided they would burn this book, probably without reading it, and take pictures to show off that they’re so stupid and insecure about their own views that they’d sooner burn anything that questions them.

I dunno about you but I’m really just confused about how you could plan out these actions over the course of a day and not sit and think to yourself “wow I’m behaving in a completely irrational manner”. 

reblogging again for brendan’s smack down

gotta love the sheer amount of hypocrisy and double-standards on Tumblr

For more posts like these, go visit psych2go

Psych2go features various psychological findings and myths. In the future, psych2go attempts to include sources to posts for the for the purpose of generating discussions and commentaries. This will give readers a chance to critically examine psychology.

I don’t know much about this Psych2go thing but I know that these “facts” are not true - OR on the surface, the way they are put out here for you to read, are twisted because you cannot just look at one thing and go YEP that is the reason for that - instead of looking at ALL the factors in the systems of life. 

1. Being shy makes your brain work better ——- for one, this has nothing to do with psychology. two, being shy is a personality trait - it has nothing to do with how the brain works. what about a shy person who has a learning disability? an extroverted go getter who is in the top of their class? this is too general of a statement and holds no grounds in psychology. 

2. that list of positive things that talk about the later you lose your virginity - again, not much of a psychological thing but hey Ill go with it anyway - for one, you can’t just look at that one aspect - losing their virginity early - because there are many factors here. What are we learning about sex? are we learning how to use condoms and practice safe sex or are we being told “dont have sex until you’re married.. ever” because how one is taught sex will affect how sex is treated in an individual’s life. Also, there has been a study done, but it was only done with 1,500 or so people. That is a small number in the grand scheme of things. Did they do a study on every people group? Did they go into rich communities and impoverished areas? Did they go to different states? No. Plus, the study they used was did the person have sex “early” “on time” or “later” - and they attached ages onto that - which does not help the study and isn’t really based on fact, because who determines what is early, on time, and late for sex??? you can’t just look at the one fact of “they lost their virginity before 15, so they don’t have this stuff” because there are family stuff ,community stuff, individual problems, school settings, and much more to factor into anything like sex. 

3. thought suppression. the only basis this really holds all the time is with someone who has OCD. when they try to suppress those thoughts and not wash their hands five times, it can become harmful for them and come back even stronger. that is psychologically based BUT this fact does not give the whole truth. 

4. the thing about musicians… just nah 

5. i dont know much about reverse psychology so i wont touch on this one 

6. psychopathy and sociopathy. sorta close on this one. Yeah psychopathy is more of a hereditary thing. the traits they game from their parents often shape the whole “psychopath” thing - and sociopaths are that way because of a brain injury or other things, like yes parental neglect, but it isn’t based solely on that nurture aspect - because it can be involved in poverty and extremely high and low intelligence. so it isn’t fully based on nurture. 

7. i dont know about sleepy on your belly? but the research was done in china, with a pool of 670 students, with two thirds of them being female - so it isn’t culturally balanced, gender balanced, age balanced, or anything. 

8/  that isn;t just the fear of losing someone you love - most all people have that rational fear - however this is the irrational and extreme thought of losing someone you love - “they are getting in the car what if they get in a car wreck or trip on something on the way out and crack their head open” etc etc - extreme and irrational - if you have a rational fear of someone you love dying, you don’t have this 

9. when you feel sad for no reason - that is literally just a word created to mean “feeling sad for no reason” it isn’t a DSM V disorder and it isn’t like a psychological thing that could be treated or anything???

10. this last one is weird because it could be the other way around just as easily. does someone who suffers from anxiety and depression or bi polar disorder run to creative ideas and other things because they struggle with all of this. Edvard Munch struggled with depression and anxiety and to let it out he painted. same with van gogh. but they didnt have this great creativity lead them to suffer from anxiety. the way this one is worded is weird and deceiving. if i read this i would go “no way i dont want to be creative” so stop with this nonsense 

most “psych facts” you find on tumblr are false 
SO this has been a fun thing to do enjoy your days

phew grateful people ain’t buying this crap

remember that first live action scooby doo movie. where the antagonist was literally scrappy doo and he was stealing peoples souls, like actually really stealing and absorbing souls, and was planning on taking scoobys soul to rule the world with an army of demons and get revenge on the gang after they abandoned him because he kept peeing in the car, and near the end he turned into this huge dog monster
