Re: Should I get a parrot?

What is the appropriate age to come to the realisation that sociology was never a proper subject, stop moaning about things that don't and have never actually existed and get a degree in something useful instead?

Re: Should the DCP really be stipulating the language we use

I suspect it's more of a context thing. No CP would ever address someone as an expert by experience, in a clinical setting etc. It's a term used in situations like this, where service users have contributed to documents. I have to say I'm not overly fond of it myself, but the service user's i've co...

Re: Should the DCP really be stipulating the language we use

Referring to someone as an 'expert by experience' is better than referring to someone as a patient? That sounds a bit like newspeak to me (and the document on the whole reads like it too). Sorry guys, if one of you swapped the latter for the former when addressing me I'd have difficulty in taking yo...

Re: What colour is this dress (brains are amazing)

That is odd. I used to have a thing when I was tired/stressed my depth perception would fail - or rather my brain would fail to project the image into space; it did project it but only about 2 inches in front of my eyes, like a flat image. It only ever lasted about 15 mins though. Vision researcher...

Re: What colour is this dress (brains are amazing)

I have, only seen this dress as being Blue and Black, whatever I did, wherever I saw it, be it on the internet in a lit room, or in a newspaper on a less than optimally lit tube; only ever seen blue and black and I haven't got what all the fuss is about truth be told. I'm currently under an enormous...

Re: Psychology

Perhaps you can seek out your careers adviser at school? If there is no careers advice that's available, surely the person teaching you psychology could also be asked for help?

Well, I bit the bullet last week and started to use my twitter account... it's under my real name (which was a mistake as it's harder to pronounce than Campion) so if you want to follow a sociologist with a communications fetish who more often than not will just make bad self-deprecatory jokes you c...

Re: Behind the online comments: psychology of internet troll

I've boiled gamergate down to two people pointing at one another screaming the following... 'I don't want the imposition of your social narrative in my medium!' Yup, as the dailybeast writer argues it's just politics; he engages in so many logical fallacies in that article that I nearly choked tryin...
