The name's Paula, I'm from Brazil. You can call me Mint Milkshake, or Mint for short.
THIS IS A MASSIVE MULTIFANDOM BLOG
Here you will find specially SuperWhoLock, Hannibal and Avengers, with a bit of anime and games....
WHO AM I KIDDING? I mostly post about Supernatural these days.
You are welcome to stay as long as you want.
The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis that psychiatrists cannot reliably tell the difference between people who are mentally stable and those who are mentally unstable.
In 1970, 8 mentally stable people were granted admission into 12 different hospitals. They all told the same story of how they would hear a voice inside their head, it was unclear but often said “empty”, “hollow” and “thud”.
Right after they were admitted, the patients stopped showing any signs of abnormality. They took part in activities and talked to faculty and other patients as they would normally.
None of the psychiatrists ever stopped to say “I think they are getting better” or “they seem absolutely fine now” In fact, nurses and psychiatrists took normal activity such as walking or writing and attempted to represent it as a form of pathological behavior.
For example, staff would point to patients waiting outside the lunchroom as a form of oral-acquisitive syndrome, when really they were just bored and were anticipating their meal.
It’s interesting to note that even though staff didn’t recognize that these people were completely fine, patients recognized that they didn’t seem to have any problems.
This study highlights how powerful labels can be.
Wow…this also potentially bespeaks how the people who are charged with making these patients better are only trying to create terminology and atmosphere that keep them institutionalized.
That’s pretty disturbing.
To anyone saying “well they said they heard voices obviously the doctors are going to look at them with a weary eye”
You missed the point.
They were supposed to detect the patients getting better and instead of being able to tell that, they took any action that the patients performed and totally distorted it and blew it to epic proportions to make them seem completely and utterly abnormal to a point where the patients were institutionalized for months.
Also, sixpenceee, you missed the second part to this experiment - equally chilling, in my opinion. One hospital’s administration was angered by Rosenhan’s experiment, and challenged him to send impostor patients - mentally stable people masquerading as mentally unstable people - to their facilities. Their staff would then turn those pseudopatients away. Long story short, Rosenhan OK’d this part of the experiment. 193 people went to that hospital in that experiment period looking for help. They flagged 41 people as impostors and had doubts about another 42.
Rosenhan sent no one.
The staff of this hospital flagged impostor patients where none had existed.
That’s really worrying…
This is terrifying
This was conducted in 1970, so I wonder how much has changed since then
im really interested to know…id like to think psychiatry has improved and advanced beyond this
reminder that in the french version of supernatural bobby says bananas instead of idjits
THIS IS THE FUNNIEST SHIT IVE HEARD ALL DAY
you might call it
The French Mistake
So, my boss wants me to make a blog for the store I work for. I was thinking on making a tumblr blog, would that be, I dunno, maybe too unprofessional?
It’s a food store, so I will mostly be posting recipes and food related things. Anyone have a good idea of what make of this or any other place I could make this blog?(making on tumblr would be good cause them I can have a excuse to improve my theme making skills =) )
shout out to the people who never unfollow me for some reason even when i never post anything relevant to their interests
Just one of those things that I always wondered about. Stags and otters are all very well, but what if you end up with a tiny chameleon or giant blue whale? I mean, it could be a giant tub of nutella…
Anyway, so glad I got around to doing this pic -drawing the less attractive animals was awesome.
Popped it up on Redbubble because they have tote bags and cushions now which is just wow - can grab it also on cards or posters - check it out here!
can you evolve it tho?
are we not talking abut the confused dementor with the dementor patronus
this is a thing that fucking happened in the show okay
A human getting pissed at their vampire boyfriend so they put in a silver sterling tongue stud and bracelets and earrings and their vampire boyfriend is just standing five feet away like “babe. c’mon.”
best so far.
