manic. If someone is diagnosed with bipolar disorder, but doesn't see it fit because they say they have never been manic, do you think they are right, or do you think they don't realize when they are manic?
kimberly Reply
Thank you for your input! I didn't know other personality disorders could cause mania, I look forward to continuing research
kimberly
I think it's more they don't realise because they don't want to it themselves
Charmaine
Good question. Firstly, some personality disorders also exhibit mania. as a sufferer, you live for the mania, its like your sociable, energy of your 20s on a saturday night thing. plus the best mood ever. thing is youre at your most vulnerable whilst at your most risk taking state.it causes issues
Tu
mental health isnt optional. theres no off and on.
Tu
I not saying there a of on button, am saying sometime it's hard for someone to come to terms that they have , they dont want to believe it
Charmaine
for some a diagnosis is a relief, an explination, a "finally" its a huge moment as at times there is complete ignorance but a lot of questions
Tu
I personally myself was diagnosed with bipolar disorder at age 6 it was a misdiagnosis no one even accounted for the reasons why bipolar wasn't the right fit. I have been diagnosed with a borderline personality disorder.
Sarah
same here. how did you feel about the rediagnosis? bpd?
Tu
I am the one who brought it up to the therapist and psychiatrist. I won't deny that I have I actually prefer this diagnosis than bipolar disorder
Sarah
I don't get manic my adhd is what kicks in
Sarah
thank you so much for sharing. im sure its psych porn. but how does acepting your diagnosis feel like to you. i feel mines not correct.
Tu
sadly there isnt much academia surrounding either mania, or personality diagnosed.
Tu
@Tu Verus. I feel that with the acceptance of this diagnosis and knowing that it is correct actually helps me. it helps me understand who I am why I am that way and what I can do to change. if you consistently feel like the diagnosis you have been given is wrong you become less confident.
Sarah
I was manic out In the yard talking in tongues until I took lithium
stephenie
concise. thank you. i hope it fidnt bring to much stress
Tu
lol, didnt.
Tu
Do people know when they are manic?
kimberly Reply
manic or panic?
Diksha
example: feel confident to venture out. manic 1 - good mood 5 wake up in a strange place with either a lot or no money on you, empty bank account, 50 new numbers on your phone and feel great about it manic 5 good mood 5
Tu
i think its panic of people they know if they are confused
Masozi
i believe that it really depends on how well a person knows themselves and whether or not they can identify their symptoms of their diagnosis. I personally panic due to a severe type of anxiety disorder. perception of one's self is important to distinguish otherwise it's speculation.
Sarah
ive learnt signs or situations that the situation is changing. sadly i dont always catch it
Tu
yeah... I agree with you@ Sarah Earing, one has to understand him/herself well enough to know when he/she is panicking..... and one true tell tale sign to know when you are panicking is being nervous, your hands, voice and even the whole body begins to shake... depending on how panicked you feel
Jordan
yes very true also when I panic not only do my hands voice and body shake I have a tendency to become very irritable and my confidence level declines and I usually feel dumb or stupid because I don't know how to respond and react in certain situations.

I'm going to start soon learning psychology but I find it tough isn't it?
nuh uh, dude, not that difficult 👌
Rena-Myra
as long as you put your heart and your mind to it
Rena-Myra
I will share my thoughts about it as soon as I start it
thanks for encouraging me
Psychology is really next to my heart and want to study it, have been postponing bcos of funds eish🙆‍♂️😭
Refiloe
welcome anonymous user😁
Rena-Myra
besides I'm in grade nine and I've already started picking up little by little on psychology 😅
Rena-Myra
can anyone define psychology.?
An
Dude or girl, psychology is the study of the human mind, as simple as that 😊
Rena-Myra
psychology;- is a hard subject.
ABDullah
well I've not really reached the deep part of it just yet but I don't think it will be that hard😅
Rena-Myra
if u understand it's very easy
Kavya
not even study of human mind but also their behaviour and their prospectives... to learn and to understand it in a very scientific manner

Hello everyone, I am currently pursuing research in the field of Psychology as well as I am a life skills trainer. I would love to answer a few questions if anyone is interested =) Stay positive and stay blessed.
Talha
Yeah.. Why dreams come in colour.. even we closed our eyes.?
An
thank you!!
Rena-Myra
one more Question.! we can't see our full body except in mirror.. But we can see our full body running in our dreams.. how can we watch our body running our self..? then who is watching it.?
An
@An Ugly Actually based on cognitive sciences we can easily say that people who can perceive colors can only dream in color. Its all because our brain is in the habit of perceiving every object in color, instead of black and white.
Talha
can a blind person get dreams in colour.?
An
For the next question, it is similar to as what we define "beautiful or pretty". It is basically our perception that brings in every mental image we have. Many people see their dreams on 1st person perspective or even 3rd person perspective. That's mainly since we see other humans around us,
Talha
what if he was blind by birth.!
An
what are the theories of thinking?
Fareha
We identify and perceive the same body image as them. You must have heard or watched the cartoon character - Mowgli, who was raised by monkeys and other wild animals. There is a real life case about it. One small kid who survived on its own among wild couldn't walk on its hind legs but on all four.
Talha
That's because it learned it through observation and perceived that as the norm for walking.
Talha
so we are watching us.. can I call it as a soul.?
An
or a Ghost?
An
Hope you get some idea of what I said. Psychology is a very interesting and deep field of study. There are many branches ranging from parapsychology to forensic sciences. Counselling and clinical have been quite popular but it is not limited to just these. Happy learning =)
Talha
No, it's our brain that provides us with an Image. Theres no soul or ghost involved
Talha
A blind person will not experience color on their dreams. The brain is not habitual to that thus, the brain area doesn't get activated.
Talha
hey can anyone tell me what are the theories of thinking?
Fareha
theories of thinking that suggest brain functions
Fareha
Theories of thinking... As far as I can remember it is covered in Developmental Psychology ***psychologydiscussion.net/thinking/development-of-thinking-process-top-4-theories-thinking-psychology/3109
Talha
thank you so much!
Fareha
You should read Piaget' theory as mentioned in the article above
Talha
sure i will thanks alot!
Fareha
You are welcome =)
Talha
Talha bro you are good at this enlighten us more in future
ABDullah
everything is tough in beginning . Try and believe in yourself you will easily understand.🙂
Diksha
just a beginner in psychology
Sufaida
could any one tell me how to study psychology
Sufaida
no idea.. how to study..
Sufaida
talha could you tell us.. initial step...
Sufaida
I am a Sociology student but both subjects are interconnected so started studying both😅
ABDullah
note down whatever you study , which you didn't understand underline it and search in Google.
Diksha
rena what are you perusing
Sufaida
psychology! but don't mind me, I'm in grade nine:-)
Rena-Myra
I want to be a psychologist so badly
Rena-Myra
@ABDullah Ehsan start with the subject which you enjoy reading
Diksha
you are not matured enough to study this course. After SEE you should try for it
Diksha
yeah I guess I am, but I'm just trying to pick up a little knowledge on it like the basics
Rena-Myra
Hello everyone! I am happy to see so much curiousity. For beginners I'd say just read the basics of Psychology. It'll give you an understanding of the basic concepts. Most of the online stuff you'll find are applied in nature. So, I'd recommend basic psychology to be covered first.
Talha
😂started lecturing but why me? I joked defining psychology as a hard subject.. well,I have taken it as subsidiary
ABDullah
yes please, thank you
Rena-Myra
Rena-Myra Akwada-Addy I am sharing my opinion for you. Try to learn basic from YouTube like how to capture body language,eye contact e.t.c this course is tough for your age even we cannot understand it properly
Diksha
thanks so much, very helpful:-)
Rena-Myra
Even at college level, I have seen many students talking about dream interpretation, brain frequencies, spirituality and what not with out covering the basic. Curiousity is a good thing. But don't let it get the best of you.
Talha
@Rena you can read books on body language, I found them pretty fascinating and easy to understand. Body language by Alan and Barbara Pease was one of my first books on psychology.
Talha
okay, I sure will, again, thanks
Rena-Myra
will do so
Rena-Myra
its about choices which interests u more yesterday I studies personality disorders and treatments and thats boring

ABDullah
it is so difficult..the words technical.. @Talha how did you overcome..all these..u have much more experience..please share
Faazi
I have seen a subject in 4th sem like stress management and school of study... still confused what to take
Faazi
@Faazi It takes practice just as with any other subject. Depends on your aptitude and interest
Talha
Stress management is a better option if we talk in practical terms.
Talha
Has the contact info posted here was taken down?

I would reccomend Gasults theory, learn it as a whole if you just want a general idea of the fields and sub fields
