    Yep, the humbleness factorů but with a twist. Used to make an excuse based on the fact that you are, that you have a nature.

    Screaming is perceived as power. Little do they know…

    "Just a bit" Probably just because I had an girlfriend (now ex) who said it all the time, it really started to get irritating!

    "Did you watch the football?"
    "Why aren’t you watching the football?"
    "Why didn't you watch the football?"
    "Let’s go out and get totally pissed" or words to that effect.
    "Congratulations, you have won a cruise" or similar
    "Would you like to buy some double glazing" or similar

    Back when I thought I wanted to be a psychologist I got recommended this book called, "Games People Play" by Eric Berne.

    In it he described all sorts of these silly mind-games that people play with each other.

    There was one called "Wooden Leg" that applies here, and I just found it on-line.

    Here... have a read...

    What do you expect of a man with a wooden leg ?

    That Dr. Berne sounds right. Great analysis of this behavior.

    Thought of another one (actually, I just read it on another forum):

    "Seen" used improperly. For example: "I seen that yesterday".

    Ugh.

    You'd like it here then.

    Trinis don't say "him" and "her". We'd say "he" and "she".


    As used in a sentence...

    "What wrong wit' he ?"

    or...

    "Wha' she doing with sheself dese days, eh ?"

    I've heard a lot of this book. I have another Berne's book - "A Layman's Guide to Psychiatry and Psychoanalysis" that is very interesting. It looks like he explains Freud's ideas in a simple language.

    A big one that annoys me....

    "I can't do it"

    As my dad always said to me, there is no such word as can't. Anyone can do anything if they try hard enough. (within reason... dont try to fly of a tall building without any device that might make it possible)

    Yeah... About that...

    I've never been much of a fan of Freud's ides. As revolutionary as they were, I think they over-simplify us.

    The main idea through-out his theories is that humans do EVERYTHING in the pursuit of sex. It's the main motivation. And while I agree that may be true of many things we do (seeking power, etc.)... I know it's not everything.

    I can't speak for everyone, I can only speak for myself... but myself is enough and I'll explain why at the end.

    I'm probably one of the more motivated people you'd meet. I have my hands in all sorts of cookie-jars and even outside of work, I'm involved in all sorts of random crap (whatever seems fun at the time). But I can tell you for a fact that my motivation isn't for sex.

    To be honest I'm not really sure what my motivation is. But it revolves around seeking enjoyment... I enjoy working, I enjoy creating... and the reward for what I do is that enjoyment. Pride, I guess. The knowledge that I made this, and it's really cool, and it works! Personal pride.

    The bottom line is that my motivation is not to find a mate or to father a zillion children or whatever. No one would believe me unless they're like me, but you have no idea how low sex is on my priority list. Don't get me wrong, it's there alright ;) ... but it's not the main driving force behind me as is Freud's take on humanity.


    But here's the catch...

    There's a funny thing about knowledge, and what we can say we know.

    One can see a hundred white sheep... and still never state as fact that "All sheep are white".

    Hell... you could see a hundred thousand white sheep... and never say that.

    BUT...

    But seeing just ONE black sheep is enough to say "All sheep are not white".

    So... the mere fact that I exist and my driving force isn't sex... even though I'm just one person... is enough to say that Freud is wrong.


    Eric Berne made a lot of cool observations in that book, and it really was an interesting read and taught me a bit. But his underlying idea was that the purpose of life is to kill time until you die. And the "games people play" are what they do to kill time. I remember there was another concept about "past-times" in there too, but I read it years ago so my memory of the book is poor.

    Anyways... I know that's not my purpose. And that was enough for me to say that he was wrong too.

    Agree with your assessment of Freud. I read a lot of his books when I was in my late teens, it did not make much sense to me either. And forget about the dream interpretations .

    Since I do not agree with Freud is also why I do not like the saying: "That was a Freudian slip." It implies agreement with his views.
