    I find astrology very interesting and psychics use it all the time to help them read people.

    The thing is there are many factors that makes our personalities. Factors such as birth place, economy, race, values, religion, etc. To be able to tell me everything about my personality just by where the planets are located is just bogus in my eyes.

    I've read some characteristics about my astrology sign online and some general characteristics are accurate. I took the OCEAN test on facebook and it said I was nothing like my astrology sign, or at least I didn't process enough of certain characteristic traits to be considered that sign.

    Oh let me throw something else in the mix. Lets throw in Chinese astrology. Some people's Chinese signs will contradict their western signs.

    I'm a Sagittarius Dog.

    Overall, I do believe there is some truth to it as trained people have successfully used it time and again, but I'm very skeptical about it. I don't believe it is 100% accurate.

    This will not end well...
    But it will at least be poetic, I suppose...

    Hmm... But what if it does end well?
    Then I suppose it will be a different sort of poetry, a preferable sort...
    A sort I could become accustomed to...

    The Barnum effect is the name given to a type of subjective validation in which a person finds personal meaning in statements that could apply to many people.

    For example:

    You have a need for other people to like and admire you, and yet you tend to be critical of yourself. While you have some personality weaknesses you are generally able to compensate for them. You have considerable unused capacity that you have not turned to your advantage. At times you have serious doubts whether you have made the right decision or done the right thing.

    If these statements sound like they came from a newsstand astrology book, that may be because they did. Such statements are sometimes called Barnum statements and they are an effective element in the repertoire of anyone doing readings: astrologers, palm readers, psychics, rumpologists and so on.

    The worst mistake people make in political arguments is assuming that the other side is not trying to do the right thing. This simple oversight makes productive conversation nearly impossible.

    That could have come straight out of an MBTI book.
