RBG and Cool as Ice Cream calling fuzzy a retard and T&T telling me to kill myself. This is the type of stuff that you have to look forward to when you come to Netphoria. This is Netphoria. I'm offering something worthwhile here while others try to defend this place as it is. Reprise isn't steering people here in the right direction. She is too defensive of this place. You have to eventually look around and accept and acknowledge what you are really apart of when you come here.

Why was T&T not banned for what he said but Trots said something similar to me and was banned? And have I mentioned that RBG continues to privately suggest that I should leave Netphoria. Of course that is when he's not bullying fuzzy.

You're fighting against something that's not worth fighting against.

you sure this is empathy that you're talking about? i'm not trying to question the expert here but i could have sworn this sounds like something else than empathy.

oh gosh, i'm not steering people in the right direction. dereliction of duty!

i know you are specifically trolling me with this thread or perhaps you really don't look past the veneer to see the goodness of the forum (probably both), but just because people don't want to take your test or praise you for it doesn't mean there is something wrong with people. maybe... maybe... there is something wrong with your test, and you are completely condescending to everyone on the forum and unable to accept criticism, and that is why people treat you the way they do (not excusing anyone telling you to kill yourself but it does explain it)

as of now, through 109 credits. including 15 credits AA-level honors courses and 6 credits honors seminar at upper level. plus about to finish a 3 credit honors thesis.

as of dec 14 i will have a honors BA in psychology, summa cum laude and a certificate in mental health (being vague as to the exact name to avoid IDing my university - but it's a state university/nothing special).

my classes this semester are easy AF and the thesis is pass/fail so as long as I finish the two class projects i have left i will get As. the tests are stupidly easy in all three of those classes. i'm only taking two of them because i need them for the certificate and already took all the hard classes (neuropsychology, psychology and the law, clinical psych) and the third class i'm taking is somewhat interesting (personality theories) but i mostly took it to secure a letter of recommendation from the professor. he is really into the theories though so it's pretty fun. never seen a better lecture about freud and believe me, i've seen about 10

i posted about this in the other thread but last week i sent my thesis adviser a copy of my thesis draft and he loved it, doesn't even think we need to meet to talk about it, and provided minor spelling/grammar suggestions but nothing even approaching major.

I am on good terms with all the professors, yeah. I am quiet in most of my life but I do talk in class. Not like, excessively or annoyingly but most people don't at all. I am really not too worried about giving a wrong answer or whatever. I mean I do sometimes think about something I said and get really embarrassed but what the hell no one really cares, not in school

I hope I am going straight to grad school. I'm applying to 2 clinical programs - one is university of miami (they have an evo psych lab and I match highly to the professors running it. my thesis is evo psych based). and sam houston state university is a forensic program. i am intending on going into forensic psych no matter what but going to UM first would mean doing research related to evo psych (hopefully combined with forensic) where sam would be like all forensic all the time

i should prob apply to more but i dont think i will. each of these schools only accept about 10% of applicants

i just spent like 4 hours trying to understand how e coli colonies play prisoner's dilemma-type games with each other (which i am too burned out to explain right now) and i finally understand it but i hate what I wrote and all that resulted in like 250 words. basically if all e coli acted fairly and just took what they needed from the environment the colonies would be bigger but what ends up happening is instead of naturally dying some cells survive and when there is a starvation condition those stronger cells that survived natural death in the cycle of cell life of e coli start proliferating and pretty soon 90% of the colony is death resistant but it's way smaller and each generation only 1% of cells survive so each generation is stronger than the last and they are constantly trying to fight each other for resources instead of just naturally going through the life cycle and creating a bigger colony

that's my ELI5

yeah i got 163 (93rd percentile) verbal and 155 (60 percentile) quant which is about 1350 on the old scale (very good but not great) and a 4.5 writing which is good but also not great. was pretty pissed at the 4.5, i'm an excellent writer. it's still 80-something percentile but whatever.

they are firmly in the top end or slightly over what those schools require.

UM i especially match well with, plus my thesis professor is a well known evolutionary psychologist with his own wikipedia page and everything (lol). like they will definitely know who he is. i am sure his recommendation will be great. he already sent it. the other two are a clinical forensic neuropsychologist who i've taken 5 classes with (fully 1/4 of my 3000/4000 courses) and a clinical health neuropsychologist who i've taken 2 classes with. i expect them also to be strong but i know my thesis professor might turn a head or two

thanks btw

CW's incapacity for understanding social information and for reasoning about others' mental states prevents him from understanding that the fact that he doesn't enjoy a warm reception on this website doesn't mean that this place could not possible be a congenial environment for anybody else. The idea that his experiences here could have more to do with his behaviour than the innate traits of everybody else here is not really within his grasp. Were he more learned in the field of psychology, he might recognize this phenomenon as an extreme version of the actor-observer bias.

He honestly thinks that because he receives some colourful and hyperbolic responses to an odd and incessant pattern of behaviour (which has shown to be resistant to change), that this place is some kind of lawless dark-web den of depravity amongst the worst on the internet. This is indicative of his sheltered upbringing, during which he was likely not allowed to use the stove to cook mac & cheese without adult supervision.

He sincerely believes that taking his quiz would give people here some sort of higher purpose in life, completely oblivious to the fact that, even were his quiz not entirely pseudoscientific dribble, the approach he is taking to get people to take it would certainly breach standards of objective science and taint his samples, as well as be in contravention of basic research ethics, given the extent and nature of the way he communicates with us. Imagine reading within a scientific paper's methodology section that research participants were selected via begging the userbase of a 1990s rock band forum, convincing them to participate through insults and suggestions that the worth of their lives is contingent upon their participation.

The fact that CW, after unsuccessfully trying the juvenile tactic of "reverse psychology" by telling us that he values us so little that he could not care less whether or not we've taken his quiz, thought that transparently changing tactics and issuing an insincere and vague apology would be sure to get us to act in accord to his wishes, demonstrates how exceptionally poorly his theory of mind has developed, despite his adult age.

This place is the worst. Everyone who posts here regularly is either mentally ill or a troll. And fuzzy is both. He's mentally ill and he's trolling as a Trump supporter.

He's not right. Fuzzy is a man-child. Not everyone on here is a man-child. Not everyone on here even has mental illness. Some people are just introverted. He's just generalizing.

I have a lot of sympathy. I even said that fuzzy should be banned because I thought it might help him not be so much of a man-child.

He has very limited social skills and he's probably borderline retarded. And on top of that he's a high school drop out and degenerate gambler.
