My brother has antisocial personality disorder
My grandparents all suffer from mild to severe PTSD from the holocaust
My mom and dad both suffer from trans-generational PTSD
mom manifests as overbearing, distrustful, and incredibly self conscious affect
dad manifests with severe histrionic personality disorder
Somehow I came out sort of normal. I needed to be everyone's shrink for most of my childhood. I became so used to my sister that I decided to pursue her case as my magnum opus.

You're far from the worst person I've chatted with. I fuck with the folks on /religion/ and friendly in my spare time if you want to know the usual levels of absolutely moronic behaviour I usually subject myself to >_>
I'm surprised though. You post bad bait on the entire front page, but you're not a complete dick like uchiha or the other bad trolls. Why do you post bait?

Psychology isn't so much hard to understand as it is counter-intuitive and difficult to study. Our education begins by telling us all about how our preconceptions are completely wrong, then tells us how psychology got it all right, then tells us how psychology was actually wrong, then tells us how we're supposed to actually do it right. I think in the next chapter we're gonna learn how we're actually still doing it wrong.
Psychologists invented statistics for the sake of convincing everyone we're not pulling our conclusions out of our collective ass.
Still, pretty fun. Definitely taught me a lot about people. I like to think it makes me more empathetic towards folks since I can understand some of the mechanisms that contribute to shitty behaviour.
also, took so long to reply cause comments got all broken. Apparently if you go to the frontpage it fixes it?

I don't really go out of my way to study people who act poorly. I just empathize with them.

In order of increasing "respect": psychoanalysis, positive psych, social psych, behavioural psych, evolutionary psych, neuroscience
in order of increasing difficulty in research: neuroscience, behavioural psych, evolutionary psych, cognitive psych, social psych. Those not included on this list are not branches of psychology with any valid form of research.
Psych bridges the gap between the hard and soft sciences. The more respected departments are the ones that are more scientific. The thing is, the more respected ones are easier to study. Wanna study neuro? Find a protein and stare at it. Wanna study social psych? first decide if you're going to experiment or just observe. If you want to experiment you better design a good cover story/research that fits the statistics we can use to measure things. Now make sure you control for literally every possible confound... etc. etc.
So yeah... It's... a bit hard?
