Don’t believe everything you read!
One of the most annoying things people can do in a conversation is tell me psychology is all “common sense” in an almighty, omniscience tone while blurting out a sentence they read in a magazine. Lots of people talk and talk and talk without saying anything with substance, without any actual knowledge or evidence to give them credibility to their opinion– I beg of you, do not be that guy! I will be the first to admit: I’m not a super genius, I do not…will not know everything. The only thing I can do to keep from word vomiting nonsense I heard from so-and-so is to research (even if it’s just a little).
I’ll be adding common psychology myths to this blog in due time.
