The Real ME: A Stock Photography Resource for the Media
We’ve all seen them in the news stories about ME/CFS: the guy in a suit at the office, yawning; the beautiful woman sitting at her desk with her immaculate make-up and elegantly coiffed hair, hand to her head and looking slightly pained.

    I've only read the abstract. It's the usual utter nonsense. Just posting it here for reference.

    Its annoying they spend money on bullshit like this.. this is the equalivant of doing a study on cancer patients and then saying they are more neurotic. Maybe we do worry about things more but we have too.. overdo things and we can end up having to spend a week or two in bed!!

    I wonder what the results would be for psychobabblers.

    I thought extrovertism was more prominent and accepted in Latin cultures, while introvertism was more prominent and accepted in, for example, Japan and Scandinavian countries. What kind of cultural judgements are researchers in Spain making? How are they normalising and enforcing "Extrovert Imperialism"? :D

    Sigh... In other news, scientists discover that when severely injured, bears mysteriously retreat to their caves and growl when repeatedly poked with sharp sticks...

    I only became neurotic after becoming 90% bedbound. Before that I was happy and ambitious with no problems except occasional boredom.

    A personality profile of 'researchers' who insist on 'researching' complete nonsense would be interesting. I

    f an illness makes you housebound, takes all your energy and leaves you in dreadful pain it is not rocket science to realise that it would also leave you more introverted and concerned about your health than before.

    It is well known that 80% of psychology students show very high neuroticism scores.:alien:
    They are not a "normal" population to start off with.

    Yet psychology students are normally the subjects for such research.:cautious:

    This was the opening gambit from one of my psychology lecturers, on the matter of Eysenk and his personality theory.
