DF, the most handsome and humble of all men. It was not enough to have one thread for him.

I also hope we can discuss other interesting ideas and issues without too much of a troll problem and/or posters disrupting the thread with nonsense.

Probably too much to ask for. lol

Hi Susan, thank you for the invite.
Off the top of my head I would say it means our behavior tells more about our character than any thing we could brag or say about ourselves. Our behavior is the true image of our traits as the mirror is of our features?

LOL will there be a test on this?

Bingo. Odd, how so many posters don't seem to understand that.

Boy howdy! Let's hope that keeping this off the Topix board accomplishes that.

Only a couple of weeks before the election. What do you think will happen?

Hey Susan! You're a psychologist, right? I'm about to work with a doctor who's using psyche tests to evaluate her patients and understand their compliance issues. Since I'm an anthropologist, that means I'm being groomed into being a handmaiden of biomedicine!

Um, no. But it sounds like a very interesting project. What kind of compliance issues are there?

I'm sure you'll enjoy being a handmaiden!

Your wish is my command princess.

What O what should we discuss?

Is this site for recreation (away from religion) or perhaps to gather the unfaithful and plot nefarious strategy?

If it's to plot nefariously...I have an idea.

Some people refuse to take their medicine or follow the doctor's plan.

As it turns out, I'm one of them :)

I had an asthma problem a couple of weeks ago, for two days. The longest I've ever had a problem! She's an asthma doctor so I asked her if she would take my case. She said yes and then wanted me to have a series of allergy tests involving needles and some blood work. I said no.

I'm needle phobic - irrationally. Can't think my way through it. I faint, even get sick to my stomach when people tell stories about being needled. I explained this to her and she said she wouldn't take me on as a patient, even to proscribe antihistamines! Kind of strict, but whatever.

The thing is, I had the allergy test done in my youth. It didn't change how they administered allergy medication - you give the same drugs, if they don't work, try new ones - so why bother? I know what my allergies are, I don't need someone to double check that. I just want antihistamines for the very occasional night when I have issues.

Oops! I turned that into a rant! Sorry :)
