I'm a #PhD of #Psychology and work #psychologist at the Swedish National Employment Service. I have a keen interest in #PhilosophyOfPsychology, #PhilosophyOfMind, #CriticalPsychology, #HistoryOfPsychology and #Phenomenology. I blog (in #Swedish) at https://fenomenologen.se. Is that enough as an #introduction?

The psychiatric diagnostic system #DSM is dismissed as contradictory, clinically unusable and "scientifically meaningless". Nothing new here...

Dear everyone who is considering making a video of yourself talking rather than just writing the *exact same words* into a text file, a blog post or a PDF:

NEO Personality Inventory
The other tests -- cognitive, memory, executive functions, attention, response control test and so on -- only help me rule out or verify neurodevelopmental disorders, but NEO actually helps me understand the client and their life-world.
The only drawback is that NEO-PI takes hours to score and interpret without a computer... I'll have to convince my boss to buy the computer based version.
NEO Personality Inventory
I have to admit that I love the NEO Personality Inventory (NEO-PI), not because of the theories of personality it tries to operationalise (all theories of personality underestimate the importance of context), but because of all the therapeutic working hypotheses I can formulate from closely examining the 240 items. I provides me with clues that help me see things I otherwise could have missed in the client's narrative.
Markdown table editor
I use the Sublime Table Editor a lot (https://github.com/vkocubinsky/SublimeTableEditor) but sometimes I would like to edit #markdown files outside #SublimeText. None of the web services I use (#StackEdit, #HackMD) has anything that even remotely resembles Table Editor.
Are there any alternatives out there I have missed?
Furniture quest: Looking for a corner desk
I'm looking for a corner desk and came across this beautifully designed desk. Unfortunately, I can't read a single word in French, but as far as I and Google Translate can understand, this one is sold out? Does anyone know if I can find it anywhere else?
I don't know anything about quality or so, maybe it's similar to IKEA crap, but I liked the design.
What of someone invented a machine that allowed women to transfer their pregnancies to men and then the government passed a law that if a woman didn't want to have a baby the biological father was required to carry it how fast do you think birth control would stop being an issue?
"IT'S UNETHICAL TO FORCE SOMEONE TO CARRY A BABY" men shout.
"NO FUCKING SHIT" women reply.
