Two psychologists suggest each other on the street. The first one says:
"You are fine, how am I?"
How many psychologists do it take to change a light bulb? Only one, but only if the bulb really wants to change.
A very fun and useful example of how psychology has flowed into everyday life because knowledge has taken a contempt. Lots of people are afraid of how much psychology has overlap in everyday life. Whether it's a mystery of the latest two psychological tensions on television or football manager reports that engage in "psychological thinking games", the point of view is that psychology is somehow feathery and certainly not as important as "right" science.
Can we look at the impact of psychology has had a study of say, personality disorder and discover a legitimate and meaningful contribution?
Initially, look at what we actually do with psychology. Psychology has been defined as " scientific study of behavior and experience "(Hardy & Heyes, 1979). The use of the word scientific in that definition implies that psychologists do more than simply think about behaviors and causes. Psychologists monitor behavior and make predictions about what causes or has affect it. They try to guess by making further observations r, ask questions or execute experiments. If this type of scientific problem is obvious in this area, we may expect a useful insight into so-called abnormal behavior in others.
Let's first look at many personality; Sufferings that have been known to develop as many as seventeen separate personalities. Thigpen & Cleckley (1954) were one of the first to recognize the unique efficacy of this disordering on Eve White's treatment; which also included Eve Black and Eva Gray. Furthermore, the work of other psychologists has uncoformed that the origin of this condition seems to be experienced by some emotional shocks at the age of five years. The theory is that suffering creates some kind of hideaway to resist trauma and can continue to use this method until other personality is rooted. The treatment is slow and difficult, but without psychological point of view, we can expect that suffering from this condition has been imprisoned, excluded or proposed for endless exposure.
A great deal of work has also been done around the potential causes of anti-social personality; suffer from what condition is commonly known as mental illness or social development. Chrisianses (1977) proposes genetic material. He watched over 400 pairs of twins and found unanimity in 69% of MZ compared to just 33% for the DZ twins. Happiness (1957) created a mental labyrinth, where individuals learn to push the right row of bars and get a shock when wrongly chosen. He found that sociopaths made more errors that led to shocks than ordinary & # 39; which indicates a neurological cause, ie failure to learn lessons from painful experience. There are many other examples and many other possible causes, but each gives an opportunity for treatment. If these measures were not possible, discrimination would be the only option; There was no possibility of treatment.
Of course, we must keep in mind the oppression of pop psychology. But real psychology is different. It is scientific in approach and strictly implemented. It seeks to deal with the effects as well as the cause and, especially when it comes to personality, offers genuine hope of suffering and their families that their condition can be treated with patience even if it is not cured.
