ITT: Bad psychology
Come on even if you think cognitive psychology is shit you can't argue neuropsychology is and will be necessary? Behavioral studies have value, but to only restrict yourself to it is silly.
Actually, behaviorism does utilize neuropsychology and biology to understand how behaviors work on a more neurological level; behaviorism however focuses more on the environmental antecedents of behaviors rather than the biological processes of them. Think of teaching a dog how to do a flip through the use of treats as behaviorism and the whole neurological process that allows the dog to learn that trick as neuropsychology.
What the people I referred to in the OP tend to favor is the idea of personality and labels as opposed to understanding the actual behavior. This leads to the whole circular reasoning of: "he is happy because he is dancing, he is dancing because we know he is happy."

Sup anons I'm about to graduate from a bachelor degree in psychology in yurop (Italy actually). I was wondering, what's the common view on psychologists in the US? Here a doctor or a lawyer has, all things being equal, more status/respectability than a psychologist. I'm talking about common and even prejudice-influenced ideas about it.
>opinions I disagree with
>not unscientific nonsense
If someone says any of those things, then they clearly lack an understanding of scientific psychology.
>lay person view
They still believe that psychology is primarily Freudian psychology and there is an all too common view that psychology isn't scientific. Pop psychology is all too common; an example (not necessarily US exclusive view) would be people taking the MBTI seriously.
They are mostly eclectic believing in a mix of different psychological paradigms and uses what they believe to be the best parts of each view.
expected a more drastic difference
Dont really agree with the description though. Comparing to fictional characters, I am more House than L or Sherlock.
Apparently I've become a bit more introverted...

Lacks test retest reliability in otherwords there is a 50% chance that when you retake the test you will get a different personality test. Lacks validity because some of the personality traits test for similar things as opposed to distinct categories. The traits aren't measured on a spectrum but instead are dichotomous meaning someone who scores similarly to someone else may get a different personality entirely.
the questions are changed all the time, some even added that subtlety contradict previous questions.
Q1: You preform better when working alone.
Q2: Having a group to bounce ideas off benefits you.
I didn't mean about my own degree, I meant about someone who has at least a master, possibly a PhD, in psychology. Let's say clinical psychology, so someone who can be a therapist as well. I'm asking because I heard from a friend that in the US a professional psychologist has better social standing (of course it depends a lot to whom and where you ask, again its common view).
Since Italian it's my first language, I did one Italian test that actually measures traits on a spectrum instead of being dichtomous and then the one on 16personalities, got INTJ in both
You actually need an MD to be a clinical psychologist here, not a PhD.
> a friend that in the US a professional psychologist has better social standing (of course it depends a lot to whom and where you ask, again its common view).
Lol, did this fried of yours happen to study psych? Even psych PhDs do not have anywhere near the almighty prestige of medicine and to a lesser extent law.
Getting INTJ is still dichotomous though as it still places you into a category on each of the four traits. If it were something like "more introverted than 52% of the population" instead of just saying your introverted then that would be a spectrum; the problem arises with the people close to the average; as a person can easily be scored as extroverted as opposed to "being more introverted than 49% of the population" with the MBTI.
Based on my experience, I think it's bullshit because there are no midway personalities
I mean, I sure have a lot of traits similiar to the ones described by INTJ type, but I also find some in INTP and INFJ types, like in certain situations I act more like another type.
Guess it's just a fun thing to mess around with or make probability-based predictions of how a person could act in a certain situation
Indeed, I had a friend of mine take that test and got 3 different types. Amazing how he could pull from his ass totally different theories to affirm the last type he got as the right one each time
But personality psychology still has merit to the field especially when combined with social psychology and seeing how the two interact. Obviously it is best to understand how all the fields combined and behaviorism is generally a very good model of psychology since it can be so objective but the other models including personality are still important and needed.

Do you mean just studying the behavior of animals or do you mean people trying to ascribe human feelings and thinking to animals? Because one of those is reasonable and the other isn't.
I am compassionate, Wise and overly trusting. I'm spiritual and decompress with alone time. I hate know-it-alls but I also hate criticism.
I mean, I really relate to every daily astrology I get from my phone app.
>I am loud and talkative but I am also sometimes quite and reserved
>I am calm and collected but can be angered at times
>I am easy going but I can be anxious at times
>I mean I really relate to every daily astrology I get from my phone app
I really hope you were being sarcastic, because the entire point of astrology is to make a "prediction" that anyone can agree with. Hence each prediction saying two seemingly opposite things about you.
Just fuckin with the guy, no one on /sci/ is an astrologyfag, I hope.
Barnum Forer effect as well as subjective validation.

I disagree, behaviorism focuses on things outside of the human brain which affect behavior, environmental antecedents and consequences in order to understand why behaviors occur as opposed to focusing on the human brain.
>labeling behavior or people
>using anecdotes to justify a treatment as opposed to science
>methods of psychology that don't emphasize either biology, genetics, neuropsychology, or behavior
Any of these really.
