We have LaTeX running on GT! Thanks to Xhin!

I was unsure whether to put this in "Real Life" or in here becuase it deals with a psychological issue that I have considerable difficulty with. I've asked Xhin and Moonray about it and gotten their take on it but I'd like to ask everybody else what their understanding of the subject is. How does it work? What does the process entail? what does it look or feel like? The underlying mechanics of it I mean. The whole thing jsut doesn't really "click" for me.

Sir, just suppose... suppose if I had a cat, what would you do with Frankenstein?

Show me where Xhin and Moonray made their responses so I don't have to repeat them.

And please: state your question clearly and precisely using complete sentences. Thank you.

it was in private and they were long conversations.

And on Steam which as far as I can tell doesn't keep chat logs.

@tnu: I think about work at work and not at home. Is that what you mean?

Edited September 18th, 2017 by EN

I don't relal7y know what I mean I just hear people talka b out it all the time and I don't udnerstand the concept.

You do have to be more specific.

Posted October 10th, 2017 by Kohlrak

Well, I don't understand the concept itself. So it's very difficult for me to be specific about it even more than I am.

There inlies your problem. How will you know you've found something you're looking for, if you don't even know what you're looking for?

Posted October 10th, 2017 by Kohlrak

Unfortunately, that doesn't really help because people keep telling me that all I need to do in order to fix some problems I'm having mentally are to compartmentalize that. I do not understand stand the concept fundamentally so I cannot do it.

That helps less. It sounds to me, though, like they're trying to get you to cope with your problems by hiding them in the back of your mind, which might not be the best thing to do (actually, from my experience with others, it tends to cause irrational lashing, which i then solve by making people deal with those problems and then they no longer lash out irrationally and unpredictably). If you'd like, we could try dealing with your problems individually in a private manner. Maybe then i could either figure out what you mean, or we could just solve them.

I'm not sure about that, I don't quite recognize your name. Do I know you?

Posted October 11th, 2017 by tnu

I doubt you do, but i do have alot of (unprofessional) psychology experience (no formal education). What i've found is that buried problems lead to aggression towards things that could unbury them. The greatest (and most exaggerated example) is PTSD patients who were in veitnam: any type of explosive or banging takes the worst cases and brings them back to the war. Alot of people who were sexually abused in some way end up either going hypersexual (excessive libido) or hyposexual (low libido). I recently heard of a case that took the hyposexuality to it's extremes. And you wouldn't think from looking at most people that they have the problems, which is why usually only trained professionals recognize the correlation.
