Do you also notice the trend in this forum that those guys who read self-help bullshit are actually the biggest procrastinators who haven't made a single step toward improving themselves? Yet they are the ones who give depressed people advice.    :lol:

That's why most advice, especially self help, is a scam.

It's either the blind leading the blind or some person with entirely different circumstances (just go up and say hi!) regurgitating what worked for them.

The only thing you can really trust are peer reviewed studies or personal observations that invole a large sample size

CBT helped me a lot. It has a lot of research behind it.

From what I heard science says it's complete bullshit, no?

Medication works very well for me. I'm a rotter but I wouldn't say I'm depressed.

I'm not a procrastinator, I've just given up on life. Unless my parents invest a good 50-150k in surgery for me I'm not really interested in making it to 30. I've got the most melted mandible and zygos on the planet, the tallest fivehead a NW2 has ever had and I'm the height of a child.

some of the knowledge is useful i have found meditation to be helpful
however alot of these gurus have severe cognitive biases, and their success is a result of thousands of steps, and if one of these steps turned out differently (e.g. if they didnt meet an influential person in their life) they would NOT be where they are now, so you should always be sceptical of them

Self improvement is mental masturbation, it hasn't helped anyone so far.

It's symptomatic for this forum. For some guys here even Post Traumatic Stress disorder in Vietnam veterans is a result of a recessed maxilla and mandible.    :lol:

Actually that's pretty red pill. Getting rejected right away is far better than deluding yourself with "Looksmaxxing" plans and thinking a Lefort 2 will get you your oneitis.

That's an interesting video. Better to understand psychology than to read some hack who doesn't have any scince backing up what he's saying.

The "theories" from this forum are probably som of the least scientific out there.
