Reading about a bunch of psychologists… I find it more interesting reading about their personal lives than the actual research they do. Some did not believe in monogamy, others were very ill and died of a young age.
I think of all that I’ve read about so far, Pavlov is my favorite. He treated his dogs with the utmost care, aided others in facilitating their own studies, allowed women and Jews to study in his laboratory, and lived humbly and frugally.
"Jenny was dressed much like any typical two-year and certainly behaved the way two-year old kids behaved. People flocked by thousands to see her. They stared in wonder, in awe, because Jenny—so childlike, so human—was actually an orangutan, an ape as most people called her… Few people in England, or anywhere in Europe, had ever seen such a creature, and those who came to watch Jenny were amazed, even disconcerted, at her all-too human mannerisms…Who was this distinguished visitor so impressed with Jenny? His name was Charles Darwin" (Schultz & Schultz, 2012, p. 100).
“So while you may now be feeling your own skull for bumps, you can be assured that they do not reveal anything about your intellectual or emotional functioning” (Schultz, & Schultz, 2012, p. 50).
My head is flat in the back…thank goodness people don’t believe in palpating heads anymore!
October is one of my most favorite months of the year:)
I LOVE OCTOBER!
I love that…you know my favorite kind of milk tea, that I can’t sleep when the closet doors aren’t closed completely, I’m nervous when I start waving my foot in circles. I love the way we hold hands when we’re driving, the way we squeal like kids as we drive across an intersection that doesn’t have stop signs. I love the way you sing humbly, when you eat everything I feed you despite the fact that you reject in the first place and repeatedly shake your head no. I love how you know when something’s wrong just by looking at me in the eye. I appreciate how we communicate and try to understand one another despite all of the differences we have.
I can finally say I’ve mastered parallel parking!! whoop whoop!!! Happy Hump Day! Thanks to my BF who stressed the importance of completely turning the wheel and to the bay area!!!!
