There are so many members here. I have been wondering what everyone does for a living. If you are in high school or college say so as well.

I will start. I work on a drill rig drilling for natural gas. I am a driller.

We use the dogs just like regular police dogs; drug and bomb detection. Last year I deployed to Afghanistan with an Explosive Ordnance Disposal det. I may be going to Iraq in July but thats up in the air right now. Its a great job, I would not trade it for anything.

A lot of kids want to do that when they grow up. A guy I worked withs father was a train engineer but he retired. He told me he worked there from age 18 to 38 and retired. It was at the time of some kind of buy out or something and they offered his dad several prices and finally just gave him his full retirement. That would be sweet!

Cool choice dude. Have studied briefly behaviorism and social psychology but probably wont head down the clinical side of psychology because from what I know its based alot on mathamatics, assumptions and statistics, or else I have been badly mistaken. What type of tests and experiments have you done up to this point Locke?

Keying in on some form of counselling myself, but have'nt decided on what specific area yet. At the moment I'm in my 3rd year of an inter-disciplinerary course, but next year (final year) it turns into a full psychology degree.

Yeah, I'm enjoying it. It makes the most sense to me personally. A lot of psychology deals with theory that is impossible to actually test. I like behaviorism because its as concrete as it gets, and tends to be able to get to the root of most problems more effectively, in my opinion at least.

Its not too heavy in statistics and math. You need to be able to understand statistical principles and recognize what you see, but unless you're in experimental psychology, you don't do to many actual calculations. Luckily for me, one of the other grad students working in my program is really strong in stats, so he'll do most of it for us once we start collecting data. Once I'm actually done with my Masters though, I don't think I'll ever need to do the math myself.

I'm only in my second semester of grad school, so I haven't done much yet. We've started research on a possible thesis, but haven't gotten too far into it yet. We don't start getting into heavily until next semester.

I have heard of the Blood Red Shoes actually. I'd seen her somewhere before, but would never have been able to place her. Attractive girl...

Would I be right in saying the work of Skinner would be a pretty influencial figure on that course? One thing you said there thats good about studying psychology is that its so vague and diverse. You will always find a school of thought thats close to your personality, be it psychoanalytic, behaviouism, humanism, etc. I personally like Humanisim and the works of Rogers and Maslow which is why I'm looking strongly at counselling.

Does your course deal with any aspects of the other schools of thought Locke or just behaviouism? Reason I ask is that its very rare over here to find a college course that strickly deals with a particular school of though.

Very surprised you have heard of Blood Red Shoes as they are'nt very big even in Britian, will take it that you like your modern music also. Thats the best pic I could find with just her in it, so shes alot hotter than that pic suggests.

Yeah, Skinner's work comes up often, as does Pavlov. His work on classical conditioning is the basis of a lot of what we do here.

The department in its entirety has a pretty diverse range of schools of thought. I'm just working with a doctor whose specialty is behaviorism. Although by nature of behaviorism, it overlaps into evolutionary psychology quite often. I'd say its pretty common for us to run into other aspects of psychology, mainly to compare/contrast. Psychoanalytic is probably the only one we don't delve into that much. Personally, I think its a load of crap, but it definitely gave way to modern psychology...

We also hire people in cities with AA and AAA teams to go to the games and score those games. Our main competitor is STATS Inc, they also hire people to score games (all sports) but I talked to one guy there and he mentioned that they let people score games from home sometimes so you could look into doing that as well. They pay by the game so it's not really full-time but it's good for extra money especially since it's scoring a baseball game or a football game or whatever interests you.

Unfortunately, I don't live in a town with a AA or a AAA team. We used to have the AAA Greenville Braves. Now, we have the A ball team, Greenville Drive and yes, I am a season ticket holder lol.
