That’s right, I’m Dr. S.S. Cialdini, “The father of modern cognitive psychology”. Clinical psychology is a discipline where you study human behavior through the use of research, clinical observations, and applied mathematics. I’ve been doing this for over 40 years, and I’ve spent over 30 of those years working in the field of psychology.

I think its a bit like how you take a picture of your dog, and then your dog takes a picture of you. Then you look at your dog, and see that its dog, and thats you. The same goes for psychology. Ive spent my entire career studying the psychology of people and how people think. I think that its a lot like a picture of someone you know. You can’t forget that everyone you know that you are related to is a person.

I think this is one of those types of thoughts that go with a lot of psychology. We tend to be most aware of our past experiences and the things that brought us to the present. As one of our colleagues put it, “We tend to think of our past experiences and their effects as just part of life, rather than being a part of us.” We tend to treat these thoughts as somehow more “real.

This is true, but it’s also true that the past can be a good place for us to learn about the present. It’s not necessarily because we have actual memories of those experiences, but because of the impact they had on our lives. For instance, we tend to think of the negative past in the same way we think of the positive, such as, I was a bad person who did bad things. But the truth is that the past wasn’t always that way.

The past is a great place for us to learn about the future and where we are going. When we think of the negative past, we tend to focus on the things we wish we had done differently. They also focus on the things we would like to have done differently, such as, I wish I had taken more time to talk to my parents. The truth is that all of our thoughts about our actions in the past are actually about being in a better place than our actions in the present.

This is called “the tragedy of hindsight bias.” It’s a phenomenon that occurs when we imagine ourselves in the future, and we see ourselves in a similar or worse light than we did in the present. It’s a way of making sure we think about the bad things we did and not the good things we did. When we think of the negative past, we tend to focus on the things we wish we had done differently.

I think this is absolutely an important concept, and a really good example of the tragedy of hindsight bias. We all have our “aha” moment when we realize that the things we wish we’d done are the things we did. When we look at the past, we see things that we wish we’d done differently, and we can’t help but feel a sense of regret.

And for those of us who can’t help but feel a sense of regret, I think we have an idea of how we think of ourselves. We look at the past and tell ourselves that we were awesome and the stuff we wish we had done was awesome. This may be true, but it still leaves us with the belief that if we had done the things we wished we had done, we would be awesome.

The thing is, its not true. If anything, we think we would be awesome because we think we are. Its kind of like the difference between thinking “If I were rich, I would be a billionaire” and thinking “If I were rich, I would be a billionaire millionaire.” The latter says we are thinking about how we want to be and the former says we are thinking about how we actually are.

We are not. We actually are not even thinking about how we would be if we had taken the right steps. We are thinking about how we would be if we were not. We are not even aware of our thoughts, feelings, and actions. Our unconscious minds are our most reliable sources of information.
