A: Yes, many of these kids might just be gay

So after all the Pride marches and progress in getting gay marriage, etc passed, the gays are going to just exterminate themselves by 'switching genders', then roping themselves when that doesn't fix the 'problem'. Frigging sad, that is.

Yeah Jet I'm not sure here. I'm only gonna say the following because it proves my point. I grew up in a shithole, I am not a product of my environment. I run a very successful company and I make more money than I ever thought possible. I am social, I have friends, I touch grass everyday. I am in what you would call this good position in life. I want for nothing. I would also say, with all that said, I am not particularly happy. I love myself, fairly self-aware, I raise my children well, but I'm not happy. And it's all a direct reflection of the state of the world. I only see that state of the world because, as the article points out, am "smart enough" to see it.

Also, if I didn't have kids, I'd be more content and care less about the state of the world. I'd just protect myself and die. I'd be happier if I didn't have kids. Not because I'd trade them for anything, or I don't love them and enjoy watching them grow into who they are, but because the world that is being left to them is a cesspool, and that's what I care about.

You must be female. In college I was considered a jock because my friends were all jocks and I spent half my time working out or playing sports. And I had plenty of male friends. I spend the other half of my time in the library reading original papers in computer science and math. Nerds hated me because they viewed me as a freak. Of course I was incel. Later I became quite successful in business. But I was increasingly miserable as I watched the world go to hell.

I don't believe in theories like this, honestly. Because one of my therapists told me the secret ingredient a long time ago already:

"We all are insane" .

Made me wonder for a long time when i heard this one from a really finely empathic and especially very human gal.

Some of the humans working in this profession really question their "own" system, but you need to build a lot of trust in most cases before they open up enough to tell your "their" secrets and philosophy, if they even want to. Some rather hide behind or point to "professionalty" and this also is completely acceptable for me.

Perhaps it is a physiological symptom or a so called "hidden" correlation:

(read the implications as correlations in this context, please)

Feminist => nuts shrink => erectile dysfunction

or

Feminist => sexual anhedonia (brain chemistry) => erectile dysfunction

or

Feminist => "seed" of conversion therapy to homosexuality => erectile dysfunction when females are present

Makes me wonder. Hidden correlations are brain-bombs for guys like me. Definitely...

Psychology of Trolling: Why People Troll Online by Zapped in Psychology

People with a propensity to seek excessive stimulation have often been found trolling.

This is it for me.

A psychoanalytic study suggests that people with antisocial, narcissistic behavior and sadistic personality disorder are more likely to perpetrate trolling behavior. These people derive pleasure and enjoyment from being intentionally cruel to others.

This is what people think. But it upsets me if I hurt a persons real feelings. I only troll people who I don’t think will be emotionally impacted by my statements. I am just looking to get a reaction, yell at people, I want excessive stimulation.

And trolling has become less fun as many people don’t respond any more.

Schizophrenic voices much more negative now than in previous eras by soundsituation in Psychology

[–]soundsituation[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

From section 3.3 Culture:

Mitchell and Vierkant (1989) compared two samples of patients with schizophrenia from the same hospital but who were hospitalized during two distinct periods: those admitted from 1933 to 1939 and those admitted from 1986 to 1987. The files reporting delusions and/or hallucinations were then examined. Differences were found regarding the primary sources of the AVH. The 1930s group reported sources that were religious in nature (God, the Holy Ghost, spirits) while the 1980s reported sources that were religious, secular and technological (God, devils/demons, doctor, scanner, television, radio). Differences were observed concerning content of AVH and in particular for command hallucinations: 1930s: benign and religious (“be a better person”, “live right”, be good and go to heaven”, “lean on the Lord”); 1980s: negative and destructive (“kill oneself/others”, “do perverse things”, “set fire to the lawn”). Finally, there were reported differences in terms of affective content of the AVH: “We want to go to heaven” versus “You will be crucified for your sins”. The cultural milieu may hence increase the probability of AVH having negative content.

I wonder if that causes dysphoria or if it's the other way around. Unfortunate in any case.

As it says around 85-95% of people conform to their gender in multiples categories which means around 1 in 10 wont. It's not a small minority.

Men who have more female type personalities also tend to go into more female skewed jobs like teaching and social care. Which is yet more evidence that such differences are down to personal preference rather than patriarchy.

Consistent with prior research, the researchers found that the following traits are most exaggerated among females when considered separately from the rest of the gestalt: sensitivity, tender-mindedness, warmth, anxiety, appreciation of beauty, and openness to change. For males, the most exaggerated traits were emotional stability, assertiveness/dominance, dutifulness, conservatism, and conformity to social hierarchy and traditional structure.

I feel like the last two male traits are the researchers going "men bad". It's exactly the language feminists use to rage about the supposed patriarchy, and I don't think it's true.

It's also interesting how I have almost all the female traits and few of the male ones.

Firstly men do clearly whine but when they do it they act out or get aggressive, as it says in the link.

I don't, but then again I'm not sure I count. I also have an extremely strong build (which I absolutely hate, it sucks carrying all that weight around and never being able to relax due to your bone structure, not to mention it's ugly on me because it doesn't suit me at all).

Secondly you are assuming that depression mostly caused by feeling bad when actually there's a greater link to inflammation in the body and depression than having a miserable existence.

It's probably hardwired brain structure. But the trends are for womens' brains to be happier and mens' brains to be more irritable and unsatisfied.

I explain it as our instincts valuing females infinitely more than males. So I think men are actually a lot more depressed, but not allowed to "whine" and get help with it, whereas society rushes to resolve every inconvenience a woman has.

If you are humble, then you got a higher score than you deserve, but you won't think so.

But if you do think that you got a higher score than you deserve, then you are not humble and you actually got a lower score than you deserve.

then there is no better cure with the exception of exercise.

Fml, the session has begun. I've been meaning to exercise for like 5 years. It would probably fix my life instantly. I feel like weed just masks my very real core issues and that being stoned 24/7 is not a good and sustainable solution. Time management is* a mfer.

Haha. I dont exercise either. I dont eat enough to need to lose weight and I dont do enough physical activity to warrant needing to do exercise. A friend of mine took up exercise for his depression because the drugs he was taking to combat depression were making him fat.....which made him even more depressed! These damn doctors....
Anyway, he took to walking 2km and doing 100 push ups a day. Now he is really skinny and motivated to do stuff. It was from him where I found out that marijuana works really well (with no side effects!) when combined with something you like to do or if done socially with others.

Why is your aggression so high? Did you not take your medicinal marijuana today?

You sound just like my aunt and my sister. Damn you psychology, you win this round. Why is your aggression so low?

Congratulations on your dominance!

Im not sure why the test says my aggression is low. Probably because I dont really think it is necessary to be aggressive. Dominance only works if you're a risk taker, which I am not.
Aggression and Depression are two conditions that marijuana is excellent at treating. As long as it is actually used for to treat these conditions and not used as a crutch to fix other issues (like loneliness or physical/psychological mistreatment), then there is no better cure with the exception of exercise.

Hey AXXA! If you right click on the image and post the link, it posts the image of the results along with the break down of the numbers. Apparently this place is has a dearth of angry, suspicious boys

jet199[S] 4 insightful - 4 fun - 3 hours ago I'm surprised more people here aren't higher on suspicion.

I guess some of the usual suspects haven't done it yet.

And then they'll probably accuse me of being a secret jew after they do.

Im usually not suspicious of people unless I have to interact with them in some kind of cooperative or functional way, like as a group or in a meeting.

I am not suspicious of anyone unless they show me that they can't be trusted. Then, there's not much they can do to ever be trusted again.
