Love it

I have finished wrestling with the independent variables and dependent variables from the past week and am heading into my final week of Research Psychology.  

Our final paper is to take a study that has been done and do a critique on it..

Well, I don’t know.. I don’t think as an undergraduate I am qualified to critique another’s work that has been done.. especially if its something done after years of study in the field of Psychology.

Do you ever feel unqualified for something you are asked to do.. ?

Just letting all you know where I have been hiding the past month. .

I look forward to a less mind consuming class next week. Research is terribly tough..

Hope you are all well.

heart heart heart


Love it

    • Joy,

      I just wanted to say Hang in there!  It sounds like you have been dealing with statistics and I just remember that class and my Industrial/Organizational Psychology classes in college as being difficult.  Ironically the human resources class I was taking at the same time as the I/O Psychology class had similar content and it wasn’t as hard.

      Good Luck with the rest of your classes.

    • I “think” my next class is industrial psychology or physiologicla psychology. .I have both coming up ..dont know what is first.  

       I had statistics before this one but this Research Psychology is dealing with cases and now I have to critique a study did on children who have experience separation from a parent for more then a month and how it affects their school work.

      Its all numbers and percentages..very dry report.

      Thanks for the encouragement; 2012 in my BA completion but hope to go on to a Masters.

    • Hello Eva:  

      Thank you for your kindly words For me, Statistics is extremely hard its coming to the end.. The course is resarch the 6 page study is a quatitative design research on children and how their schoolwork is affected by not having both parents.

      I hope, like you say, I bo beyond my wildest imaginations.

      I enjoy reading your responses as much as I do your book you are qute the artist and writer.
