    Psych on one page
    (A speculative, practical, heuristic approach)
    (c) 2019, 2015 Vasos Panagiotopoulos

    Animals are born with their minds fully formed and have instinct. Human brains form by age five to be more adaptible and develop two of the twelve personality types. When a crisis occurs, the personality type becomes a psychosis. (Antipsychotics treat intensity not type.) When this persists,
    the nerve pathways become engrained and harder to change, hence a personality disorder. Disorders are divided into serotonergic mood disorders (Histrionic, Obsessive) and dopaminergic thought disorders (schiz). DSM3 was the last categorisation before sexual correctness was enforced by lobbyist lawsuit. It is worth noting that some disfunction is a motivator and that a totally sane homoclite is as productive as cattle. Furthermore, neither opposites nor
    likes attract, but complements, people whose combined lacks and strengths multiply each other. The mind is hardware (nous), the personality is
    firmware (psyche, outer garment of skin) and the soul is software (pnevma).

    People block facts inconsistent with their core beliefs (Wildavsky 1982&1987). Paranoid individualists think their opponents are all from the
    deep state. Narcisistic egalitarians think all their opponents form a
    criminal mafia cabal opposed to mamma state. Obsessive hierarchicals think anyone against them is a demonic heretic. Passive aggressive fatalists think everything is rigged.

    Daniel Kahneman and Amos Tversky warned how we are blinded by heuristic biases, which make decisions faster, but not always better. Attribute substitution substitutes a more easily calculated heuristic attribute. Availability bias relies on immediate examples. Anchoring uses the most
    recent information. We prefer avoiding losses almost twice than acquiring gains. Framing excludes information that appears out of contaxt. Hindsight thinks events were more predictable than they were. Accepted theories often blind us to extremes. Yuval Hariri says humans are the only animal that puts ideas ahead of reality. Ideology is idolatry, teh curse of the Eden apple.

    Maslow postulated that needs have hierarchy (Food, Shelter, Family, Neighbors, Self-esteem, Self-actualization, then Transcendence. Nations exceeding 1980 $300 GDP/capita demand democracy because they have risen in Maslow's hierarchy, nations falling become politically chaotic. Viktor
    Frankl's 1946 Search for Meaning argued the way a concentration prisoner imagined the future affected his longevity. Waterloo neuroscientist Colin Ellard argues city dwellers have a 40% increased risk of depression and
    double the rate of schizophrenia. Faris & Dunham (1939) showed psychiatric ailments are more prominant in city dwellers arguing it was caused by deprivation. Vassos & Pedersen (2012) confirmed this. But perhaps only when
    one is sufficiently high in the maslovian scale does one get mentally ill.
