Commented on Nazi Crimes
To this day, I still don't understand how the Nazis did what they did. How do you kill so many other human beings? Maybe they were all mentally perturbed in one way or another--not necessarily a diagnosed illness but just...
Commented on Inmate Isolation
This is an interesting idea--I've thought about it this way before. However, it would seem as though keeping a person who is mentally disturbed before entering prison would experience even more sever disturbances once left alone. Maybe their punishment should...
Commented on Run for your life...it's a cult!!
This is interesting to blog about. I know when I was younger, I didn't really understand how devastating a cult can be sometimes. Do you think that a cult could be good in some ways though, too?...
Commented on Depression and College
You know freem467, I completely agree with everything that you are saying. I know during the fall of freshman year of college, I'm pretty sure I was mildly depressed and I say that because when I look back on it...
Commented on Do you have a phobia?
I didn't realize there was a phobia such as cynophobia out there but I guess a person could have a phobia to pretty much anything. This is just a less common phobia--not heard of too much....

Posted Conformity to Kill to Section 24 PSY 1001pub

Commented on Is conformity universal
It's interesting because when I first began thinking about conformity while reading this chapter, I had this thought that Americans would be one of the most conformist societies out there. However, it makes a lot a sense that collective societies...

Commented on Mass Hysteria
I always thought that things like this were so crazy! It makes a person wonder what kind of things you could plant in people's heads and try to coerce them into thinking it's real. Maybe we could tell people that...

This is such an interesting topic you blogged about. I have never understood what drives individuals to torture others to the extent that has been done in the past. I am appalled at the way prisoners of the United States...
Commented on This Stuff Actually Exists??
Leex5571, this is a wonderful topic to blog about! I'm similar to your way of thinking in that I didn't realize that the Rorschach test was used in real life--let alone it had a name such as Rorschach inkblot test!...

I actually didn't like my school pictures until I got into the last few years of high school and senior pictures. However, I always attributed this to how I was developing personally--when I was in middle school, all I cared...
