Wondering how I started studying Psychology, somehow amazes me and I also find it unbelievable.
I have a long way to go, but somehow, I’ve come so far.
My fascination with Psychopaths started in my Sophomore year after seeing a documentary about them. Then again, I always enjoyed watching Thriller movies with serial killers. While I am fascinated by them, I stand 50/50 on whether I want to meet one, and the other 50 is I want to study them.
So I started studying them and watching everything with them, and plan to buy every novel with characters like them.
I have encyclopedias at home, from where I got my first read about Psychology. They delved on child development. A topic I visited twice in college as a nurse, and I borrowed in several library Psychology and Psychiatry books.
One very important and memorable time of my life is when I’m in my Aunt’s house. We were in her room. I was at the top of the double deck bed and she was below. She asked me, what I wanted to take in College. And I told her loud and clear that I wanted to become a Psychologist. She just told me she doesn’t want me to take care of mentally ill people. I shouldn’t have listened to her and just pursued what I love and wanted instead.
Then I got into college, we have a Psychology a lot.
Of course, we also have Sociology and Anthropology subjects, different forms of Psychology.
For the last 16 years these are ome of the books I read regarding them.
I bought most of them in book sales and some of them from National Bookstore, Fully Booked, Powerbooks, and Amazon, the electronic books I have.
The first 2 were from my bestfriend in College, the mind control method is something I bought in highschool.
There’s my books in College below. My Psychology book was borrowed.
My interest in Profiling was also influenced by Criminal Minds.
I know the novel Psychopath doesn’t belong with the group, but somehow it fits. Because I first heard about Lovemap from this novel. I learned several psych insights from this novel that I bought and search the other novels by Keith Ablow, a forensic psychiatrist.
From some of the books I borrowed in our library, below is an example of some topics I photocopied for studying.
This is from the book, Psychiaty Case Files. There’s another example of that picture below.
Today is my birthday. And instead of celebrating my birthday. I want to celebrate what I love instead, which is to become a Psychologist.
That’s not all cause it doesn’t include all the books I borrowed in our library and the electronic books I bought in Amazon and from Scribd.
