Re: quantitative research methods anxiety

I'm always a little skeptical about seeing difficulty with the statistics elements of psychology as a problem with mathematical ability. I say this because I actually find much of the statistics that psychologists use to be very non-mathematical. For example, lets take inferential statistics. For th...

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

I also think there is ambiguity about lots of issues. Do some women unwittingly (or knowingly) reinforce sexism by playing along with established tropes? Is this them expressing the free choice feminists want for every woman, or something harmful to the greater movement? Is affirmative action ever ...

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

It's interesting that it has only been since I started working as a professional, started living with a female tenant who is a working professional, and found a life partner, that overt experiences of sexism started to become apparent. I was shocked the first time my housemate told me her boss had d...

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

Unfortunately it's very common. I signed into Facebook and at the top of my newsfeed was a post from another woman academic, asking, "Can I join the queue for support and reassurance during evaluation season?" A colleague at the university where I did my first postdoc has been trying to get anon ev...

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

1.) The practice of anonymous student module evaluations needs to end. There is research to show that they're biased against young female academics, and I have just had a lovely illustrative example - a critique of my hairstyle, my choice of footwear, and my decision not to wear makeup ("She needs ...

Re: How important is placement in Masters?

Hi everyone, I am hoping to become a clinical (neuro)psychologist one day. I currently hold an offer from Bristol for the MSc Applied Neuropsychology course and from Reading for the MSc Theory and Practice in Clinical Psychology.

Re: 2019 Doctorate Application Progress thread

I'm also struggling with choices right now. I have an offer from UEA and an upcoming interview at Southampton. Southampton is near my partner, but UEA is right by my parents and would allow me to live at home and save for a mortgage. I also got a really great vibe from UEA. If funding gets cut (whic...

Re: Results of the reasoning tests

I sent Exeter an email last year to ask about how I did on the test. They kindly responded and told me my percentile scores on both tests.

As a CAAP in Scotland I don't have to have anyone sign off my letters. Many CAAPs simply dictate them and sign them themselves.
Ah thanks for correcting me, I was unaware that this was the case.
