I asked a very close friend who had just gained his Ph.D. (in psychology) if he could give me a 'gem' of truth...some bit of wisdom...about the behaviorial sciences.

His reply?

"It's all a crock! You can't predict human behavior. There are too damn many variables!"

I am a Psych major and I have learned a lot about the mind and how the hormones and chemicals in your brain control the way we think and act. Its important to realize that those hormone levels can control your thoughts and feelings and just by being aware of that, you should always learn to pay attention to your feelings but not allow them to control you. There are many ways to subside feelings of anger, depression, or just calm yourself down. Its all chemistry. Definitely not psychobabble and very helpful to ppl who are seriously in distress and need help. I think people have no idea how the brain works so they are easy to judge but if they picked up a book once in a while they would easily understand how it works.
