  • 24:32 There's nothing south of Antarctica.

  • +Tom Bendik Ignorance I can accept. But I'm shocked when people talk about things so emphatically that they make themselves believe it also.

  • I have got a lot of ideas about psychology from this lecture. Thanks a lot professor.

  • I love free college. 

  • You should see " WTF Bending A Mans Mind ". Such a crazy psych movie.

  • I saw the gorilla dude but I didn't give a shit and keept counting.

  • Gonna play this while I sleep!

  • He has the most adorable laugh!

  • Only at MIT could a psychology class be taught in front a blackboard full of vector calculus

  • Out of curiosity, and I'm sure I could find an answer to this elsewhere but while I'm here, does anyone study OpenCourseWare material in groups, either in their local area or, more likely, online? There is such a rich availability of resources but discussing exams, content, or just sharing opinions is a great part of learning. That's not to say the OCW stuff isn't amazingly helpful already, but just curious if anyone knows of these.

  • Close down the psychology department and hire them on as garbage collectors.  No psychology or psychiatry practice anywhere—THEN civilization can advance—ALWAYS they label social nonconformity as "illness" or "disorder."  They did it to maintain slavery, they did it to ban women from wearing pants, they did it against gays to suppress them, until gays got enough political power to force the hideous behaviorist cult (successor to the Witch Hunts) to disengage against them.  "He is insane whom we so deem," the credo of every psychiatrist and psychologist—that makes you con men dangerous.

  • I find this really interesting 

  • you have to think, really?

  • What a great speaker! Even wrapped things up in a short summary at the end. He's good in my book, on to lecture 2 😃 😉

  • Psychology? What a joke subject! The west fails when more people become lazy and do Psychology! Some context 500 people applying for one Psychology job in the UK! Even employers see you as jokes now! Medicine on the other hand or mathematics/Engineering you would be Guaranteed a job! 

  • the faces are the creepiest thing i've ever seen

  • He is charming.

  • oh gosh, you have eng-sub. thank you for the course and the sub as well.

  • The psychological establishment has a mental disorder… yes… the entire psychological establishment has a mental misunderstanding regarding mental disorders… mental disorders are the psychological establishment’s ‘bread and butter’… literally… they would be without a survival level living if they didn't convince you that you needed either drugs or expensive therapy for your ‘particular symptomology’… they ‘survive’ to address your symptoms… but as to the causation for those symptoms…?… forget it… you’d get better and they would lose you as a paying customer… now wouldn’t that help out the ol’ personal finances… not having to pay those mostly insincere, materialistic frauds anymore…?

  • Great Prof!! Discusses topics well and clearly.

  • About the racism experiment, I feel it would have been a similar result if it was done the other way around for good measure and a black person said something racist about a white person. Not that I don`t believe the results, but racism goes both ways, and that`s an important thing to keep in mind.

  • mountebank

  • Do you get any certificate for this course?

  • teacher speaks very sophisticated.

  • That professor is great. I loved it, looking forward to the rest 🙂

  • I watch quite a lot of stuff on youtube, but this series of lectures is my favourite so far. I highly recommend to watch through the whole thing, and recommend it to anyone you can. This should be mandatory material for every human being.

  • People pay a shit ton of money for universities like MIT.but now we can just access everything online for free. Isn't the digital age marvelous?

  • What are the mathematical steps to know the chance that 2 people in a group of 30 have the same birthday?

  • seriously considering just not going to college and watching a tonne of these and other educational shit

  • first class is always fun and great. Never an indicator of the rest of the year

  • The Shepard's Table one is FALSE! So is the stepping feet by a tiny bit.

  • I'm not misinterpreting! The nose is sticking out! clearly that is all it is doing.

  • Why wasn't I allowed to take A-Level Psychology at school!
    I am a better psychologist than any trained psychologist or professor of psychology!

    I did GCE's at school but I was by far the most intelligent person in the whole school!
