  • Commented on Millenials: The Most Stressed Generation
    I think that another contributing factor to this stress could be the sense of immediateness. For example, technology has sped up the process of so many things, including the spread of ideas. Because information is much easier and quicker to...
  • Commented on Calculus Frustration
    I'm the exact same way when it comes to fixed mindedness, especially when it comes to school. For example, I always write my papers in the same format with similar vocabulary and sentence structure. This isn't always a bad thing,...
  • Commented on Homosexuality: Nature Vs. Nurture...Vs. Neither?
    I agree that it isn't necessarily due to nurture. For example, I have a good friend who has two moms, yet she is heterosexual herself. Granted, her biological father is straight, yet she was raised in an environment with two...
  • Commented on Milgram Experiment
    I also found that experiment quite disturbing, just like Rjax011. It kind of explains why we, to an extent, slightly revere doctors and policemen. Sure, not everyone listens to them or gives them respect, but I know that for me,...
  • Commented on Now I'm not trying to be a Negative Nelly, but....
    I'll admit, I did make up a slightly BS blog about how fascinating child development is. While I do find it interesting, the chances of me sitting and closely analyzing my own childrens' development are slim to none. It's not...
  • Commented on Incredibly Amazing Psychological Concepts
    I agree completely with how significant the biases are, even outside of a classroom setting or experiment. I feel like when I'm at work at the bookstore, I automatically assume that I'm right about a book's location, even if there...
  • Commented on Finding a job with my big five
    Being able to apply strengths is one of the best ways to be successful. I feel like not too many people actually utilize their strengths to the full potential, and it's great that you combined them with your knowledge of...
  • Commented on Titanium Necklaces (From earlier posted wrong)
    I agree that their version of testing the bracelets was inaccurate. There was an infomercial about this type of product where random people were selected from groups walking buy. They would have people stand on one leg while the salesman...
  • Posted 5 Years Down the Road.. to Psychology 1001 Sections 10-11 Spring 2012
    Because I work with younger children, especially kids under 3 years old, I'll remember the chapters and lectures describing their language and mental capacities. I've definitely noticed that kids start babbling much earlier before beginning the one-word phase but never...
  • Commented on Body Language
    The amount of tiny symbols and indicators of moods is so surprising. another indicator of mood is supposedly pupils and whether they're dilated or not. I think this type of thing I'll continue to remember 5 years on because it's...
  • Commented on Throw our IQ/Standardized Testing
    I feel like standardized testing isn't an accurate way to measure intelligence. For example, there are many kids with different learning disabilities whose intelligence far outweighs mine, but because they can't easily take a test, they aren't given a fair...
  • Commented on Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire
    I love how tv shows about crime and police matters try to make this look like a reliable method. I know that when I'm under pressure, I show signs of uneasiness, my heart rate increases as well as my breathing....
  • Commented on Have you had a demon visit you at night???
    I've experienced sleep paralysis a few times and while I don't share any of those beliefs when it comes to demons, etc., I definitely believe that it's a terrifying experience. What I'm curious about is what other cultures believe cause...
  • Commented on Asian Parents are STRICT!
    When it comes to parenting styles, there are so many different ways to treat your kids. I think it correlates quite a bit, like you said, with cultures and beliefs. When it comes to my situation, I'd say my parents...
  • Commented on Bandura: The Bobo Beater
    In addressing your question of whether we're violent by nature, I agree. I don't think it's necessarily to become the alpha of the group but merely a way to compete with others, whether through intimidation or or actual strength in...
  • Commented on combatting racism today in America
    When it comes to racism and changing our generation's attitude towards it, I'm mildly pessimistic. Some of the reasons these stigmas and stereotypes concerning racism is because, depending on the individual, can be part of their everyday. For example, even...
  • Commented on Popular Culture on: Love and Marriage
    I agree with your position on the devaluing of love. Another thing I think some movies, especially chick flicks, portray is the fear of not finding love. They use this idea as an excuse to sleep around, while pretending that...
  • Commented on Beauty and Body Piercings
    As someone with piercings, I've always found them attractive, but never once did I consider this a world-wide phenomenon, let alone a sign of beauty internationally. But the more I consider the possibility that this attraction arose from nature and...
  • Commented on How is intelligence portrayed in the media?
    I've noticed this as well. When you compare older shows such as "I Love Lucy" to shows today like "Bones", women characters are definitely experiencing a shift in personality and intelligence. I believe this is happening because shows want to...
  • Commented on Do Ask, Do Tell: An encouragement for freedom of expression and sexual orientation in the military
    I agree to your argument in terms of rejecting DADT. Another ignored aspect to this argument would be overall frequency of inappropriate interactions that take place between all members, whether homo or heterosexual. Why is it that it is more...
  • Commented on Video Games and their impact
    I completely agree with your position on violence and videogames. I grew up playing games of all sorts with friends, even Grand Theft Auto, and not once did I find myself inclined towards being violent. I also believe that video...
  • Posted Autism: Paranoid or Prepared? to Psychology 1001 Sections 10-11 Spring 2012
    The awareness of autism has increased significantly which partially due to the increasing amount of research related to curing and understanding the disease. It is also partially due to famous celebrities with autistic children such as Jenny McCarthy and John...
  • Posted Chapter 7 - Memory to Psychology 1001 Sections 10-11 Spring 2012
    Chapter 7, titled Memory, dealt with explaining how memories work within our minds. While everyone knows what memories are, few know specifics when it comes to knowing how it works. For example, short-term memory is much shorter than I assumed;...
