    Yeah, I'm hoping that'll be the case with me. Transferring to UC Santa Barbara next fall, so maybe things will be better there. And my passion is industrial/organizational psychology, but I'd also really like to study generational theory more. I really think it ties into workplace relationships quite heavily.

    Neuroscience is pretty heavy though, good job with getting into that. I have a feeling that eventually that'll be the only part of psychology that really has enough money to function properly. It's really promising. Maybe slow now, but at least you're in the field, right?

    Oh yeah, also, nice calligraphy videos. I've started learning it myself, recently. It's hard to get a hang of not fucking up the ink.

    Did you see the video on theonion.com about halloween? It was cute.

    What's generational theory and how do you think it applies?

    I'm actually thinking that I'd like to go into clinical psych. Research moves a bit too slow, and I don't really want to deal with all the politics, even though I love teaching. Also, I think there's a giant gap between academia and the rest of the world, and my focus right now is more on reaching people than on generating ideas for myself or for a community of scientists. In the topics that I'm interested in, the application happens more on an individual/interpersonal level, like in therapy. I'd think that in organizational psych, your ideas would have a better shot of flowing into the business world and being utilized, though.

    Cool about the calligraphy.




    Anyway folks, I need to get to sleep. Thank you all. It's been lovely. Till next time. G'night.

    G'night... Man, it's tough trying to reply to a forum conversation in close to real time. I managed to miss most of it.

    Yeah Samhain is Druidic in origins, but the "All Hallow's Eve" is largely a Catholic thing. Hence why I find it ironic when Evangelicals attack Halloween as a Satanic holiday. LOL!

    I'm not sure if generational theory is the official name, but I don't know any other official names. It's only just starting to be studied more thoroughly. But it basically focuses on the differences between generations, what causes those differences, and how the difficulties that arise from them can be resolved. So basically, if you have a grouchy baby boomer manager with a sink or swim attitude who always goes by the book, you might have a lot of unnecessary conflict when he meets the young, hip professional who likes to cut corners when he sees rules which seem irrational. Both people have their benefits, they just have to be in the right place to work correctly.

    And clinical psychology is cool, I wish I had the personality for that. I interviewed some therapists, and they were all really happy about their jobs. I think it'd be nice to be able to be able to work directly on your patient like that. With I/O, you're working against capitalism and bureaucracy.

    Anyway folks, I need to get to sleep. Thank you all. It's been lovely. Till next time. G'night.
    Night.
