Spring in January!

Dude, its like 67 degrees out today! Its so beautiful, and all I want to do is go to the park and play outside all day with friends until way after the sun goes down. And then drink iced tea and sleep with the windows open. 🙂

You know what I hate though? People who are really young, and are all like “Herp derp, I know psychology, ah can figure you out, ahm so smaaart.” First of all, you’re way too young and inexperienced to have done any real in depth study of psychology. Second, if you really knew psychology, you’d know that not everyone fits their textbook counterparts. You can’t just figure somebody out without actually talking to them and getting to know them. Which brings me to my 3rd point, you can never actually fully figure ANYONE out. You can guess, but you can never be fully sure of what is going on in someone else’s head. That’s the unique beauty of humanity, every person thinks differently than everyone else. Just because two people are similar does not make them the same. The thing about psychology is that it is a guideline to discovering different patterns in thought. But even that is just a guess. You can’t just slap a label on someone and say they’re just like everyone else.

Also, there’s a difference between figuring someone out and understanding them.

Okay…rant over.
