Psychology: Seeing Through The Bullshit.

 

*some paragraphs in this article are inspired from Crash Course & School of Life on Youtube.

Part two of the psychology series, I wasn’t really expecting all this amazing feedback on the previous part of this series as the topic might seem a bit far from what I usually talk about here, glad you guys liked it.

My aim from this whole series isn’t to make you memorize terms or remember random names, neither it is to peak your interest to major in psychology – which is a fairly bad idea, unless you want to go into Psychiatry or Industrial-Organizational Psychology , you will hardly make any money. My aim is to show YOU how to create your own sound judgments about the world and how to better interact with it.

Part one of the psychology series was a standard intro to psychology, the part one will serve as the ground for this and the upcoming episodes of this series, so even though you will still understand the message of this article without reading the former one, I strongly recommend that you go read it first then come back to here.

In this article, I will try to help you better see through the bullshit of this world, whether was it your own bullshit or other people’s bullshit. Continue reading Psychology Ep.02: Cognitive bias

Psychology: A Simplified Intro

Honestly, I wasn’t planning on writing such an article!

But as I was reading your emails on [email protected] I noticed that people do enjoy articles with some psychological background to them, I even receive emails asking me to write more articles of similar nature.

After giving it some thought I realized that explaining such knowledge is supposed to be fundamental here on this blog.

From a generalized perspective on myself, I concluded that I am able to do what I do because of:

Interest and knowledge in psychology, interest and knowledge in biology, interest and knowledge in the human brain, a creepish interest in observing people, drawing conclusions on my own based on observation + knowledge and then working independently to prove or disprove these conclusions, hustling attitude and huge balls.

I am in no way special, unique or anything along these lines, but rather this mixture that caught my interest since a young age has some really cool side effects to it, like getting girls, making money and building a cool lifestyle.

Damn, if I was a bit more interested in the English language I would’ve been able to write better articles by now….

Anyway,

Why do this “Collection of interests” help me do these things?

Mainly because I know how to manipulate myself into doing what is necessary than doing what is wanted at the moment.

Any collection of interests you will be involved in will create and polish your personality and attitude, and your personality and attitude will eventually determine how your life will look like.

Increasing your knowledge of psychology will definitely reflect positively on your understanding of yourself as well as your understanding others.
