Psychology is not an exact science, I'll grant you that. But there is plenty of data that indicates how fundamentally, all people's brains work in a similar fashion. To put it bluntly, you can push a certain button and expect a certain effect.

The rest of your post seems like you're out to be provoked. Let's not play games here, just say what you have against my profession.
That depends. Do you have weird sexual preferences?
Absolutely not. My colleagues and I agree unanimously on that.

fair enough

My mother and my friend were badly abused in mental institutions, and judging from what I've read from other patients their experiences were not unique. I have never heard a patient claiming a mental hospital actually helped them.

Mental hospitals threaten punishments with harsh treatments if they're not compliant and subservient. They don't give a shit about the patient's well-being, and don't even see patients they see case numbes and beds for the budget sheet. It's the Stanford experiment writ large. So I don't know how you can say you're a psychiatrist without feeling shame.

I'm aware of these things.( By the way there is a difference between psychologists and psychiatrists, but that's besides the issue.)

I'm sorry to hear about what happend to some of your loved ones. I take it you're an american? Because the US health system is beyond fucked up, the mental hospitals employ a system of fear, which is bred out of sheer ignorance, which in itself is a result of a below-par and underfunded education system.

The field of psychology has actually many proven benefits, and I vehemently believe that, if applied correctly, it can bring a lot of relief to humans.

Well, in general you would want to exacerbate the specific things that have already led some of them to commit suicide.
Masturbation is healthy! Don't let anyone ever tell you otherwise. Porn, on the other hand, can be harmful in excess.
Harmful, that is, in terms of sexual potency and arousal. When you're horny, and you always resort to porn to relieve yourself, you're taking a shortcut that nature never intended you to.
The feel-good chemicals that your brain releases after climax are then associated with porn, which is associated with easy, which can turn into a habit, and even an addiction like other dopamine-releasing habits.
Porn also raises expectations of sex beyong a realistic level and can actually lead to having trouble getting an erection when you eventually do, hopefully, ever manage to get laid :)
I was depressed from age 15-18 and I saw several psychologists. The first one I didn't like, the second one didn't like either, but the third one worked charms.

For anyone who is seeing a psychologist: If you're not 100% comfortable, seek a new one!

A chemical reaction in your brain that serves the purpose of procreation. That is, biologically speaking. But humans have turned love into a cultural thing.
Because both things you mentioned have their origin in the brain. The brain defines everything of our character, beginning and end.
Nice one. I think the meaning of meaning, from a human point of view, is about gratifying our inherent curiosity paired with arrogance. We want to give everything a meaning because we think so highly of ourselves. The search for meaning is basically a massive circlejerk.

I'll touch this subject in a specifically nuanced way due to the fact that you can simply google your question. I think that the most valuable pro of marihuana is that it can serve as a less harmful substitute for other addictions. The con is, that you can get addicted.
People are attracted, or at least fascinated by, what they perceive as abnormal, defying conform rules, or plain weird. The fact of the matter is that men play the dominant role in a society, and are expected to behave in this way. Women are supposed to be protected.
By turning the roles around you get something completely opposite of what is expected, which some may perceive as new and arousing. The idea of a man, supposed to be strong and dominant, being submissive to a woman, is ground-breaking.
Whether it's a good thing or not depends on the relationship itself. I'd say whatever floats your boat as long as no one gets harmed is okay.
Maybe she can't handle rejection? Or maybe you were too blunt.

Landon Walker
Landon Walker

Social anxiety is a vicious circle. The fact that you're aware of it tends to be a source of anxiety in itself.
Usually there's a specific thing that causes you to be anxious around other people. Maybe it's something in your appearance, or maybe, just maybe it's the fact that you KNOW you have social anxiety.
And even more so, you're afraid that others will NOTICE that you have social anxiety, and they will think less of you or judge you for it. You turn red, or start sweating, and people see that.
This knowledge creeps up on you as soon as you engage in social contact and cripples you, and in that very moment you're so self-aware that you can't function properly until you're by yourself.
So now you avoid any type of situation that causes you to feel that way. But this only worsens the problem.

There's good news though. You can get rid of SA within days, if you have the right mindset.
First of all you should realise that nobody really gives a fuck about you. Those nights you spend awake thinking about the many faux-pas you committed at school? None of the people you so awkwardly interacted with dedicate even a fraction of the attention to it as you do.

You must imprint this upon your brain day in and day out. People don't nearly notice or care enough about your behavior as much as you do. Notice how people almost effortlessly make friends and have a social life? It's because they're not even trying. You are. They don't care. You do.

You should stop focussing on pleasing everyone around you, and instead start improving yourself. The best way to do this is to excell in something. Pick up a sport, or go on the internet and read up on a subject that you can become knowledgeable about, anything. Your confidence will go up.

Aditionally also try ACTING like you have confidence, in time you might start to believe it.
When you get confronted in a social situation, the fact that you KNOW you have SA makes you anxious. Try focussing entirely on what the other person says, bascially distract yoruself from the anxiety. Maybe you've experienced moments where you momentarily forgot about your anxiety. That's what you should go for. Tell yourself that social anxiety is NOT a part of your personality, but rather something which your brain does to fuck with you. Get angry at your anxiety, when it creeps up on you dismiss it, tell it to fuck off. I mean it. Yell in your head at social anxiety to FUCK OFF. Get real angry at it and repeat this every. single. day.

SA is all about a certain button that has to be switched. Once it's switched, you'll be overflowing with confidence. You just have to flick that switch.

My professional diagnosis:
ur gey
Yes. Yes you are.

Because you've been avoiding inconvenient truths your entire lifetime and now you've found a way to politicise those insecurities.
Because admitting to ones mistakes is a quality that many people lack. People generally think that being wrong=admitting defeat in a discussion. I'm not supposed to say this, but that's a sign of emotional immaturity and, well, stupidity.

Being able to admit that you were mistaken, or even concede that you changed your mind is a sign of maturity and a quality which I greatly respect in people. In fact, doing so in a discussion can actually give you the upper hand. When someone presents you with a good argument, triumphantly expecting you to freak out, the best thing to do is to take them by surprise and say 'I haven't looked at it that way. Well done' or something amon those lines. They'll go from pissed off to reconciliatory within the second.
why do so many people lack emotional temperament? So many people are unable to take any ounce of criticism without freaking out and calling you a retard/troll?
It's how people are. Stupid.

Wanna talk about it?

Because people are social animals, not solitary animals. The reason you're depressed is exactly because you lack a social life. Being bitter and convincing yourself otherwise hasn't helped so far, has it?
You just haven't met the right people user. You tell yourself that hate others, and that's because you feel hated yourself.

I depressed for a variety of reasons, not having any friends isn't one of them.
I know this because I tried having friends once, and the only word that comes to mind is "tedious." I didn't enjoy it, and it didn't make me happy.
tried the gf thing too, couldn't cum while fucking her, she would fucking bitch, go my god she would bitch about nothing, and she would start shit with people and want me to step in, it was fucking stupid. Didn't make me happy, actually make me more depressed, because I had less money over-all.

Your (ex?) gf sounds like she was a dumb slag. That's your problem. There is definitely an intelligent girl that you could get along with great somewhere out there.

Well, what DOES make you happy then user? Also are you on antidepressants by any chance?
Well, when you engage in a discussion with someone like that, most likely they will try to provoke you by yelling and cussing.
You can try to undermine their anger by acting the opposite. Take the moral high ground by staying civil, and thus emphasising on the difference between you both.

If they don't listen to facts, at least make them look and feel like fools.

Dear mister mind doctor,
In your practice have you noticed any general differences in the psychology of different race?

Joseph Reyes

Traps I consider a fetish rather than an indication of a sexual orientation. Sexuality is fluid, and can be overlapping. If you're attracted to men then you're gay, if you're attracted to men who look like women in every single aspect except for their private parts, well, then you might be a little bit gay. As I said, it's not black and white, this sexuality thing.

Act, dress, and look mature, get good grades, in fact, excell in class, and try to get on a personal, equal standing with her. A teacher expects you to be submissive, so don't be. Adress her with you and use her first name. Be really fucking mature and you might tap that sweet teacher's ass.

I'll adress this further tomorrow.
Great question. This requires a long, thought-out response though, let me get back to you tomorrow.

Some random old dude I found on the webz. What does that say about me? Food for thought.

I really do appreciate your response to my question. This question was from an incident I had with a friend earlier today (he's not a friend, we hate each other but for the sake of simplicity I will just call him 'Mark').

The Calm Before the Storm -
I and my friends have a place we go and hang out during lunch hour at my school. It started off, as usual, everyone coming into the area eventually.Then Mark comes along and somehow we get into a friendly fight I'd suppose. I think I asserted myself as being stronger than him but I had also proven that I was not physically conditioned for this and became tired. The fight became long-winded and just wouldn't stop. So, I impatiently forfeited and declared a draw and agreed to cease the fighting and maybe do it again at a later date. I don't usually get into fights very often; I am very passive, so I had to calm down. I just leaned against a wall and just stood there taking everything in.

The Storm -
Marc came up to me with a chip on his shoulder and said; "are you salty man?" I said "no" he persisted and said "dude, you're so fucking salty" then lightly slapped my cheek. My moment of pause; ruined. I was livid with contempt. For a while, I have been studying his character and personality. He is a person with strong insecurity and pettiness that any victory regardless of size he will endlessly gloat and parade, the feeling of victory is not enough for him, he wants you to know that he is 100% triumphant. I went up to him and attempted to say all that. I told him how he lacked confidence and any sense of achievement and I saw a reaction, he looked away to his friends and just did that snarky chuckle to make themselves feel better. Before I finish he just completely interrupts me (mind you I told him not to interrupt me at the beginning) and I couldn't take it anymore, I wasn't going to be condescended and ignored by some stuck-up bastard, so I punched him right in the face with all the strength I had within me.
I looked up and I saw nothing, the blow did nothing, he was unscathed and emotionless. At that point I knew I had lost, he had manipulated me to do this, I was the one who lost. And I went away and cried, how humiliated I felt to be at the knees of an egomaniacal, emotionless brick wall such as himself. Nothing can get through to him.

In Summary -
Would it be fair to call him a sociopath? He lacks any sort of emotional attachment to anything, is bereft of any sort of introspective abilities and he is oblivious to how he makes others feel EVEN when they tell him.
Also, does this attitude of self-aggrandising have its roots on some sub-conscious level? The need to constantly boast about his petty achievements surely should have its genesis within that.

Hunter Anderson
Hunter Anderson

I suppressed my sexuality since 12 to about 13-14. When I stopped trying to "make myself asexual" it was like opening the floodgates, rapidly spiraling out of control from roleplaying with creeps online pretending to play filthy cockcheese-aliens all the way to outright animals raping men, legit zoophiliac porn, etc. etc.

I did not try many forms of conventional therapy. I was very lucky. I'm just kinda /ss/index.html now, gentle-femdom is about all I want anymore. I genuinely got rid of my paraphilias. Granted, I don't think I'll find them disgusting like most normal people should, but I don't -like- them anymore, I don't look for them or much enjoy them, and I consider that a success. Would you?

Elijah Nguyen
Elijah Nguyen

When I was 11-14 I suppressed my sexuality as hard as I could and it came out in horrible ways man. When I was 19, after I tried chemical castration, I voluntarily abstained from masturbating or any kind of sexual activity for 8 solid months. It went even worse.

That shit does not work for everyone man. I'm glad it helped you but simply abstaining from sex makes a lot of us worse.

Ian Hall
Ian Hall

Nono, I'm telling you, suppressing my sexuality like that is absolutely part of what fucked me up. I don't think it works for anyone. My paraphilias showed up after I gave up trying to "make myself asexual" - I was trying to do that since the dawn of my puberty till about 13-14.

It's basically an absolutely extreme, hardcore flipperbabylovechild between "You need to want to change" and "you need to find something you enjoy just as much/better"

In my case, it was the combination of /ss/, gentle femdom, and soon after, a girlfriend into both of them. If you legitimately find necrophilia disgusting, detrimental, etc. then you can absolutely choose to no longer find it hot - you do have control over your mind, at the very least - and given that, and some time, your dick will eventually follow suit.

Juan Hughes

Doc, I've got an issue that I'd like you to talk about. See, for a while now, I've just had a complete lack of motivation to do anything. Through some quick googling I have found that the term "Avolition" describes it pretty well. It's probably piggybacking off of my depression, which is something that I actually find beneficial and don't want to get rid of.

Basically what happens whenever I try to do anything vaguely useful, is that I'll have everything prepared, ready to go, plenty of time for the task at hand, and then I'll just, not start. I want to start, there's nothing in between me and doing what I want to do, but I just never end up doing it. No matter how bored I am, I just never start, even with no distractions I can never wind the impulse to start doing something.

The only reason I do things anymore is because people tell me to do things, but even then that only sometimes works. It's gotten to the point where it's become a legitimate problem to my life, and I have no idea how to tackle this.

So if you do have the time, I'd appreciate any thought you give to my conundrum.

Yikes, your life must be pretty hard. If you want others to be comfortable with you, you should at least not admit to your violence, that means not saying it nor posting it. As for your childhood, that is in the past, and I recommend that you forget about it and not let it hold you back. If you wish to get therapy, you may do such, and general therapy will work. But you could try murderer therapy, stalker therapy, and trauma therapy, as all of those may be helpful to you. I don't have many details, but try those therapies. There should be programs for you to get into free or reduced therapies, so look into those.

Therapy. Look into free or reduced therapy plans.

I never liked hispanic girls or fat women and now I find myself in a relationship with an overweight hispanic girl that I love.
Despite being white and finding white girls very attractive the only other women I've been with were black, my previous girlfriends were total nogs.

95%? I hate homo sapiens in general, so it's 100% for me. Not that there aren't people I like. Life is such a big circle jerk and human beings are the worst of the worst of the animal kingdom.

Tell yourself that social anxiety is NOT a part of your personality, but rather something which your brain does to fuck with you. Get angry at your anxiety, when it creeps up on you dismiss it, tell it to fuck off. I mean it. Yell in your head at social anxiety to FUCK OFF. Get real angry at it and repeat this every. single. day.
This was the coping mechanism I developed in my teen years to deal with my shitty family and to survive school.
But it never made the anxiety go away, so I had to maintain a constant level of aggressive anger - like a dam. The second the dam collapses, the anxiety floods in.
Anyways, this meant I was basically an abusive self-centered masochistic person constantly boiling over with (usually) impotent fury.
As an adult, in the real world, it became obvious quickly that you cannot keep a job in this state.
So I tried pretending to be nice socially and in professional settings, and I'm awful at it.
People only buy that shit from someone where it isn't genuine for so long. Then when they discover what sort of person you really are, they detest you because being fake-nice is worse than being an honest dick head in everyones eyes. People feel betrayed.
Also, it feels sociopathic to be this way, and I am certain I am not a sociopath or at least never used to be…

be me, currently 20/m
135 IQ on Stanford-Binet. Tested during primary school and as a young adult (at 19), score remained same.
on very-high-functioning autism spectrum. Aspbergers, but DSM-V just throws it all under ASD now.
taught myself how to be socially normal over the course of 2 years (ages 17-19) with intensive studying of nonverbal communication like body cues, facial expressions, tone of voice, timing of speaking, sentence breaks, and by developing more normal hobbies and cultivating past friendships
lots of people now tell me (when I disclose to them at a moment of deeper-than-surface-level emotional bonding) that they would have never guesses I was on the spectrum. Not just patronizing me, but actually surprised to hear it.
basically normal on a social level. It takes effort and constant diligence to not forget body cues and stuff. Starting to sink in as secondary nature a tiny bit, but it's still taking effort. This isn't a problem for me though.

the problem?
had 12 jobs between 16 and 20
longest lasted for 31 days
shorted lasted for 6 days
whenever I have physiological stressers (excessively high or low temperature, bad headache or inflammation or heartburn, required to carry very heavy or very hot items, common cold, not sleeping well, etc etc) my brain very quickly flips from my usual laid-back, analytical, over-average intelligence to a very impulsive, emotional, in-the-moment "mode".
basically go from a thinking person to a feeling person
lose ability (or determination, not sure) to recognize nonverbal cues, critical thinking, long-term thinking, etc very regressive behavior, usually end up walking out of jobs in tears or screaming at someone like a massive fucking toddler

saw a psychologist
she thinks it's an executive functioning disorder of some sort
wants me to go apply for SSI/SSDI
that's fucking dumb. I'm 20 with no degree but extremely talented in the world of ethical hacking. I don't want to be a leech when I am gifted with the skillset I have.
traditional ethical hacking / infosec jobs are very paper-certified, so while I understand job requirements and duties extensively, I am underqualified
struggle to keep stuff like even a very simple dishwashing job, makes it hard to pay for certification courses in the field, which run for a a good $1500 or more when you're talking about the kind of stuff that can be used to get past HR filters (OSCP, GPEN)

what the fuck is wrong with me in your opinion
what's the best way to move past it
open to diet/exercise/sleep/behavior/lifestyle changes, I need to fucking do something about this.

possibly relevant: nurse in high school recommended my mom to a psychiatrist because I was exhibiting classic signs of anxiety attacks
prescribed to ativan
paradoxical reaction which ended in me attacking cop with knife and ended up in psyche ward, basically wanted to kill everyone and everything around me
genetic testing reveals I should consider staying away from all benzodiazepines, likely will have paradoxical reactions to any

I, for the most part, feel pretty good most of the time and find a hard time stressing about anything. I didn't feel pressure when I was failing the classes required to pass high school Ended up passes so w/e or this last election when I was sure that should Hilary be elected, it would cause serious conflict. I also can't empathize with Depression and wanting to commit suicide, I understand sadness, and betrayal and a whole other spectrum of conditions and emotions and conditions and can place myself in people's shoes so to speak, but I never understand Depression. Is there something fundamentally wrong with me? Or am I just an ubermensch with superior tall, blonde genes and higher brain power, and basically all your bitches should mate with me to improve our gene pool

I tried ativan once - it had literally no effect so ended up taking lots. Had black outs.
