Verbal Dysdecorum

Postby Manak58 » Sun Sep 11, 2016 6:06 pm

Hi,

I'm a Psychology Graduate, I may have given myself Verbal Dysdecorum by doing the following psychological experiment on myself, if any of you have knowledge within neurology, I'd be grateful for your input.

Verbally express your stream of consciousness, by verbalizing every thought that pops up into your head, without blocking them, or choosing other words, or directed/focused thoughts, i.e. verbalizing thoughts that are deliberately focused on something specific. Do this experiment for hours on end, until your brain says enough, and you stop because you're too tired to go on. Do this at least three times.

Dysdecorum is a result of lesions on the frontal lobe, i.e. physical damage to the brain. You don't talk yourself into lesions.

Well, there you go, I have neurologically changed my brain due to that experiment and others, it may not be the classical definition of lesions, but it's close enough. Another experiment that reversed some of the effects of the above experiment involved self-induced vomiting and OCD ERP. If you're a scientist and of the opinion that none of this is possible, what's the point of making progress in science?

If your brain is neuroplastic enough to change one way, it can be neuroplastic enough to change again.

It's not that easy, it's like opening Pandora's box, the experiments I've done are novel to the world, the British Psychological Society deems the main experiment an area of high risk and potential torture. The world's scientists today don't know what lies within the brain as I do, to speculate about it without having done the experiment is pointless.

Neural plasticity in my experience requires experiments to be done in a particular order, and on luck, your brain and you as a person will never be the same again once you've done the above experiment.

Who says it is not possible? Science is about functional reality, not impossibilities. Maybe your condition has absolutely nothing to do with the "experiments", rather you are just a victim of voodoo magic. Maybe all you need to do to heal yourself is kill a live chicken, drink some coca cola, burp out the evil, take the chicken home, eat it and then throw out the bones in 3 days. Science cannot prove that method impossible, because undoubtedly some people have done exactly that and have been healed from their illness. What science can do is test theories and determine that less than a certain percentage of the time, the person does not become healed. For medical science the burden is less than 1% while the social sciences rely on a more lenient 5%.

So I'm not saying what you are claiming is impossible. I'm saying given what I do know about the scientific method along with psychology, neurology, etc. etc. your claims are bullish*t, scientifically speaking. Outside of science, claim what you like, write a book, make money, enjoy life and have fun selling your psychosis to others.

If you knew what you were talking about you'd have done the experiment, save me your drivel and voodoo magic, you have no idea what my experiments do to a brain, if you do, give me scientific data and validate your sh**!

The fact that you say scientifically speaking without scientific data to back it up (show me replications of my experiment) means that you're happy to engage in conflict with ignorance as your torch.

I'm not the one making claims, you are. It is not my, or anyone else's responsibility to prove you wrong. If you are correct, if your "experiments" are valid, then get out of this forum and submit your work to peer reviewed journals. By all means, get your amazing work published.

http://www.jneurosci.org

http://www.academicjournals.org/journal/JNBH

I will even help you out. Here are two links to reputable scientific journals that would be more than happy to publish your work. If you get your article published in either of those two journals, I will personally pay you $5,000.

I've asked to be referred to a Neurologist, if my brain is different from others, as .005 as I believe the p value was in Psychology, and I do indeed have Verbal Dysdecorum, that $5000 will come in handy. Thanks for the opportunity! As I'm only a Psychology Graduate it may be that I need to collaborate with Researchers that have the necessary qualifications in order to get published in either or both of the journals you have suggested, but I'm quick at writing and finding information, so an article shouldn't take too long to finish.

Cheers!

The p value is .05.

Just FYI, getting published in those journals will require more than just using Google and wikipedia. Best of luck with getting funded, going through IRB, collecting your data and going through peer review. Enjoy and I will be here waiting on the results. If you start tomorrow you can probably get it published in a year or two.

As hard as it may be for you to believe, I graduated with a 2:1 BSc Single Honours Degree in Psychology from Stirling University in Two thousand seven. That I can't remember the p value is expected.

I've achieved a hell of a lot with my brain I can tell you, most people would've given up years ago.

Working on a hypothesis is a piece of piss, proving it is dependent on research, and I'm good at that.

A PhD does not impress me, what makes you a good Scientist is more than your qualifications, arrogance is the opposite of worth, rudeness combined with a PhD is what you would expect from a Scientist that feels inferior.

I'm not inferior to you, neither is a truck driver that has come up validated research in whatever field from his home.

Validation is the key, not the titles before your name.

I agree.

My name is Richard. Unlike you, I have not listed any titles or made any claims. You are the one that opened the thread announcing you are a psychology graduate and announcing your discovery. And in your most recent post you boast an honours degree in psychology. Why do you feel the need to tell me? Why the need to let everyone know your qualifications? According to you, it is because you feel inferior.

Whatever title you have bestowed upon me it is either what you have implied from my responses or you decided to play around on the Internet. Regardless, I have not told you my qualifications. For all you know, I'm a truck driver.

We both agree validation is key, not titles. So why are you not validating your discovery? I have provided you incentive, $5,000 to get your discovery published in one of those two scientific journals. Why are you instead in here, spouting off your qualifications?
