    HUMANISTIC BEHAVIORISM

    Psychology is the science that studies human conduct and the higher animals'. The behavior is the particular way in which people conduct. In general the fundamental forms of behavior are: verbal, emotional and gestural. Derived forms of behavior are: intellectual, artistic, moral, religious and ideological. The instincts and reflexes are inherited forms of behavior. The ideas and thoughts correspond to private or subjective behavior.

    Humanistic Behaviorism is based on three principles:

    1 - The human being, psychically, is an indivisible unit.

    2 - The study and the adjustement of personality is integral.

    3 - All psychological schools have right points on behavior.

    Laws of balanced behavior are:

    I. - We can have beliefs and ideologies,
    Without going into fanaticism.

    II. - We can have nostalgia,
    Without going into depression.

    III. - We can be thoughtful, intuitive or creative
    Without going to extravagance.

    IV. - We can read much,
    Without going to think that we know everything.

    V. - We can believe in god,
    Without reaching religious discrimination.

    VI. - We can dream awake,
    Without gettings illusions.

    VII. - We can be social,
    Without getting egocentrism.

    VIII. - We can have authority,
    Without going to selfishness.

    IX. - We can want money,
    Without reaching ambition.

    X. - We can eat,
    Without going to gluttony.

    XI. - We can love a person,
    Without going to idolize.

    XII. - We can have sex,
    Without going to bestiality.

    It has nothing to do with religions.

    There is a certain irony in point VI.

    So that's the rule for sex and balanced behavior. Anything goes EXCEPT beastiality. Hmmm, so obviously rape and pedophilia are balance behaviors, but what about sex with inanimate objects or individuals from the plant kingdom?

    All I can say about your posts are while they are rather odd they do contain some entertainment value.

    Thanks Marquis and Origin for your opinions.

    Bestiality is a generic term that includes all sexual deviations: homosexuality, zoophilia, pedophilia, fetishism, incest, etc.

    That's an irony.

    The only real way to stimulate thought is to entertain it.

    I see. Have you redifined all of the words in the OP or just beastiality?

    Randomly redefining words makes effective communication oblique (I have redefined the term oblique to mean difficult).

    One more point. You have redefined beastiality to mean all sexual deviations but have not been clear on what deviant behavior is. The etc is problematic! If a male is attracted to breasts for instance is this beastaility? Clearly breasts have nothing to do with sexual reproduction and as such shouldn't an attraction to them be viewed as fetishism?

    Your opening post is an 'executive summary' of psychology in relation to humanistic behavior, Sibilia.

    I observe that you list psychology as your occupation.

    Where are you trying to lead this discussion? It would certainly be of assistance to me to have an understanding of how you would like a discussion to proceed.

    It was just a clarification.

    The woman's breasts are attractive to men, are part of the sexual foreplay, but the trouble is exaggerating.

    I try to reconcile behaviorism with humanism by general principles. A vision of a comprehensive behavior. Your participation will be very valuable.

    Yes, I am psychologist.

    Behaviorism is applicable to any species that is capable of learning a conditioned response, IMO. (I utilize psychology in working with my horses to teach them to make decisions through communication, not merely conditioned response.)

    Humanism, then, is any system or mode of thought or action in which human interests, values, and dignity predominate?

    http://www.simplypsychology.org/humanistic.html

    Which of our behaviors are 'hard-wired'?

    Which of them are conditioned?

    Which of them are malleable (capable of change)?

    Why is this pseodo crap in a science subforum?

    Psychology is considered one of the sciences, it is my understanding.

    On another Science forum that I frequent, it is a stand alone subject on the Biology sub-forum.

    If the moderators disagree, perhaps they could explain why it is not to be considered such?

    Is psychology more accurately described as a protoscience? Here is a list of topics in psychology that are characterized as pseudoscience.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_topics_characterized_as_pseudoscience#Psychology

    “The Blank Slate” by Steven Pinker, have you read it? He claims that Skinner was a blank-slater. Genes do play a major role in who we are, don’t you think?

    Mod Note

    I was not aware that psychology was no longer considered a science.

    I guess I missed that memo.

    If you feel that it is not a science, I am sure you are quite capable of sending a PM to the owners of this site detailing why it is no longer a science. In the meantime, please do not derail this discussion.

    As opposed to disorders that split the personality?

    Here you're referring to the psych., not the the patient?
    Can you clarify? You mean "infallible"?

    XIII - We can fail on any or all counts, because . . . uh, look, doc, like I was telling you, it all started when I was very young . . .

    "The history of Psychology as a scholarly study of the mind and behavior dates back to the Ancient Greeks. There is also evidence of psychological thought in ancient Egypt. Psychology was a branch of Philosophy until the 1870s, when it developed as an independent scientific discipline in Germany and the United States. Psychology borders on various other fields including Physiology, Neuroscience, Artificial intelligence, Sociology, Anthropology, as well as Philosophy and other components of the humanities".
