It is fascinating to watch how the meaning of words in psychology are being subtly but continually shifted.
It is like the old joke,
“I went running 5 miles a day, By the end of the week I was thirty five miles from home. “
Definitions are sliding further and further away from base. We are already miles from where we started a few years ago.
You can apparently pacify a psychopath now by just remembering to thank them.
We used to have a saying at school.
‘Whoever Smelled it, Dealt it.”
The more technically correct term is Projection I believe.
What I am trying to say is maybe check out some of the older stuff from accredited sources. I am not accredited it in any way but I am becoming reasonably adept at recognising guff when I see it,
We all need to work hard at trying not to spread bullshit. Some of my stuff may turn out to be bullshit but I have made it plain I hope, I am writing about my personal experiences and I am far from being an authority. If you feel a I also write a load of guff please feel free to move to sites which make more sense to you. I mean half the time I am having trouble making sense to me.
