Emoticons: a :-) :-) thing

Emoticons: a :-) :-) thing | SHS GCSE Psychology | Scoop.it
You have probably never met Professor Scott Fahlman of Mellon Carnegie University but, like it or not, he has rewired both your brain and mine. In 1982, the computer science lecturer was writing on an electronic university bulletin board and wanted to make a wisecrack about a lift on campus. So no one thought his joke was a safety warning, he followed his post with a :-) and suggested that his colleagues do the same also promoting :-( as a sign of seriousness.

Carl Jung: The Main Differences between Freud and Jung

Carl Jung: The Main Differences between Freud and Jung | SHS GCSE Psychology | Scoop.it

Our way of looking at things is conditioned by what we are. And since other people are differently constituted, they see things differently and express themselves differently. Adler, one of Freud's earliest pupils, is a case in point. Working with the same empirical material as Freud, he approached it from a totally different standpoint. His way of looking at things is at least as convincing as Freud's, because he also represents a well-known type.
