-by Kati Knight and other contributors
I had a dream about SPSS…. and
it wasn’t a nightmare.
I adopted stereotype threat as a self-handicapping strategy.
I can accurately tell you if I am a high or low self-monitor.
I began doing psychological assessments (in my head) on everyone from my
family to news anchor people.
I caught myself reading a psych periodical in the library….
on a Saturday…. for fun.
PSYCHINFO became a fun place to waste time on the internet.
I refer to renowned psychologists by their first names….
like I know them.
Phrases like “self-objectification,” “psychosomatic symptoms,”
and “blood-brain barrier” enter casual conversations.
You start making sexual jokes using names of parts of the brain.
You verbally abuse the sheep brain you are dissecting… then hope you
haven’t harmed its self-esteem.
You know the best method of disposing of rat poop.
I began to use similes like, “He just kept trying like a rat in a
Skinner box” on a regular basis.
13. I caught myself explaining the operant conditioning reinforcement schedules used in slot machines.
14. When my friends were exclaiming, “I can’t believe that many people do that!” over the annual Cosmo sex survey, I found myself responding, “But think of the sampling error and self-selection bias involved!”
Have a contribution to add to the list? Or something you'd like to post at "Humor Break?"
