I passed my Psychology Exam

As part of my Gestalt therapy training I had to do an exam Psychology last Wednesday.

I passed the exam. Now I can have a decent talk about psychology with you at a local bar (Or a virtual Bar)

5 things I learned during my studying for my psychology exam

As part of my first year of my GTO training, I have to do an exam Psychology next Wednesday.

Next to the things I learned about ratifications on which I posted in blogs about positive and negative ratifications and 5 conditions for effective punishments 

I also learned a few surprising things while reading / studying the book Psychology from Marc Brysbaert:

  1. The main cause of a flatulence ulcer (maagzweer) is a bacterium. (And not stress) [P. 587]
  2. Schizophrenia is not the same as multiple personality disorder [P. 600]
  3. People with a high IQ at 11 year live longer. [P. 526] And it’s a myth that these children have problems in other parts of their life.
  4. Myers-Briggs-Type-Indicator (MBTI) is not reliable. Apparently have different investigations proven that of people that retake the test 5 weeks later, 50% get a different result. [P. 551]
  5. Midlife crisis does not exist [P 475]

How many pages do you read a day?

Presentation zen links back to an old talk of Chris Anderson for TEDtalk.

Chris is a great speaker.

Some excerpts:

I started doing something that I have forgotten about in my business focus, I started to read again”

“Our penis or happiness as we say it in English”



I always loved reading. About 7 years ago, Dirk told me he read x pages a day. And it helped me focusing on reading. I try to read 30 pages a day.

Since I have kids that is 20 pages a day.

It really helps to see wider then the projects I am currently on. It’s not easy, I have to schedule time to do it. I know I feel much better when I do. And it is much more relaxing as watching a few hours of television.

I actually notice that it is possible to convince my sons to do the same thing. They do complain when I don’t turn on the television. They forget about it, the minute we start to read together…
