Psychiatric Treatment Strongly Not Recommendedcom

Psychiatric Treatment Strongly Not Recommendedcom | Sarcasm | Scoop.it
Gappa N. Bakwas's insight:

It's a heady thought--no pun intended--that psychiatrists have mental problems. They must have mental problems judging by the post I comment on here. I'll pretend not to be too excited. I should actually be worried about the fate of sufferers falling into their clutches.

 

Anyway, let me get to the post that prompted this post. I came across it in the Author Support Forum at Article Chase, of all places. Could it be that authors need psychiatric support? Or is it that psychiatrists need support from authors? Another heady thought, surely. This bodes many heady thoughts to come.

Harper's Pipe Dream About to turn into a Pipeline

Harper's Pipe Dream About to turn into a Pipeline | Sarcasm | Scoop.it
Gappa N. Bakwas's insight:

I'm not a Harper supporter. Nor do I support Enbridge's Northern Gateway Pipeline. I felt I should make this clear right from the start because I'd hate to be buried with the bitumen. But I'm also a realist. And I say what I'm about to say from a realistic point of view. So get ready for it.

 

Stephen Harper, generally recognized as the Prime Minister of Canada and the virtual owner of Canada, has a dream. Most would say it's a pipe dream. Well, it certainly is a pipe dream--it's all about pipes. Harper's pipe dream is well under way to becoming a pipeline. And protesters will just have to put that in their pipe and smoke it.

 

What Harper wants, Harper gets. This includes--get ready for this--the next election as well. He'll win it or I'll put my words in my pipe and smoke it.

Danger of Humbleness - Perfectionism, Overcoming the Perfect Problem - by Mark Lehr

Danger of Humbleness - Perfectionism, Overcoming the Perfect Problem - by Mark Lehr | Sarcasm | Scoop.it

"Michelle Held, an entrepreneur who helps businesses develop corporate pro-social presences and mentors nonprofit start-ups, prompted this post. She requested elaboration on how people misinterpret others not telling the truth as lying after reading, “Why Employees Lie Even When the Truth is Better.” - 


Via Bettina Ascaino
Gappa N. Bakwas's insight:

I'm proud to be able to say that humility is a better word than humbleness. I don't say this in all humility, mind you, as I would have said at one point--a point in time before I read about the "Danger of Humbleness" by Mike Lehr. No more of such risk taking for me. I'm going to flaunt my superiority--if, that is, I am superior in any way, which may be questionable but I prefer not to question it.


According to this post by Mike Lehr--and thus according to Michelle Held, I assume, unless Lehr has misunderstood Held or taken her view beyond it's intended meaning--humble people think others are lazy if they can't do what the humble people can. I can only conclude, then, that superior people think others are inferior if they can't do what the superior people can.


You can see right away what a difference true perspective can make in a person's life. Superior people such as myself can finally go back to being condescending toward others. Hey, if they're lesser humans it's not my fault, is it?


Running down the list Lehr provides of the various pitfalls of humility--humbleness, in his version--I give you my, or rather, superior people's version.


Humble people think others are not concentrating if they can't think like the humble people. Superior people know the others just can't think. Humble people think others are being obstinate when they don't understand something. Superior people know the others are dense. Humble people... This is so irritating, talking about inferior people. I hope you get the point, unless you're too dense.


The point is, arrogance is a virtue.
