Well at least she bothered to take an actual college course in the
pseudosubject before declaring herself an expert on the matter, as
opposed to so many people who make the same declaration after
having watched a few episodes of “Dr.” Phil. The latter includes
“Dr.” Park Dietz, the “forensic psychologist” who testified against
Andrea Yates (the woman who drowned her five children in the tub).
“Dr.” Dietz testified under oath that he had telepathic abilities
and had read Yates’ mind and determined she was perfectly sane when
she killed her kids, and as further evidence he offered a plot of
an episode of the fictional television crime drama “Law & Order”
that didn’t even exist. The fact that his testimony was being
heard to decide whether Yates should be executed did not seem to
bother “Dr.” Dietz as he perjured himself, a lack of conscience
that a psychologist might attribute to repressed Oedipal feelings
or subconscious a*** fixation in anyone else.
I guess my question would be how psychology can be considered a
real science when in this case we have two psychologists with two
completely contradictory opinions: One psychologist believed that
Yates was so mentally ill as to require half a dozen or more
potent psychiatric drugs, while the other psychologist believed
that the most bizarre, senseless, and irrational act of drowning
all her children to death was perfectly sane. This is not
medicine at all; in medicine two doctors might disagree what
is causing a fever, but you do not see one doctor measuring a
fever while the other denies the fever exists.

Earth to crackbaby!
Dr Phil is entertainment on TV. His ratings are consistently higher than
Bill Nye the Science Guy for a reason!
Consider education TV is you want to be educated. Watch Dr Phil if you want
to be entertained.

*Well at least she bothered to take an actual college course in the

All I know is she could have studied many other courses yet chose
psychology, ever since then she has been a completely differnent person e.g.
always trying to analyse peoples responses and being totaly unpredictable,
before I could have long conversations with her and I knew her well but now
it’s like as if after talking with her, you end up thinking you’ve been
talking to a stranger.
She NEVER opens up anymore and has become more of an actress than the person
i used to know. So if that what psychology does to a person I want none of it. Dave —–

He doesn’t entertain me, I find his self-righteous psychobabble to be
very irritating. Anyway, expert witness testimony at a capital
murder trial isn’t supposed to be entertaining, yet “Dr.” Park Dietz
entertained the jury with his idea for a Law & Order episode. He
presented his clever plot for a fictional teevee crime drama as fact
– something psychology diagnoses as “factual disorder” – and is grounds
for involuntary commitment to a mental hygiene facility.
Perhaps “Dr.” Dietz should receive some therapy to help him learn how
to distinguish reality from television, and how it is not acceptable
to lie under oath to persuade a jury to sentence someone to death, no
matter how great a movie plot it would make.
What’s really funny is that those of us without fancy PhD’s in psychology
are able to recognize a raving lunatic as a raving lunatic, while
psychologists are unable to recognize them as such and instead accuse
normal people of insanity.
One psychologist passes another in the hall and says “Hello.”
The other psychologist thinks to himself, “I wonder what he
meant by that?”

One might ask why then you would voluntarily watch him. But hey, I don’t
want to probe into that!
