    Finding it harder and harder to take psychological and psychiatrical research seriously.

    This reads like something from a tabloid. I am reminded of McEvedy's hysteria thesis. What people will do to get a job in this field is dismal.

    Someone should do a paper on how some psychology post grads try to raise the status of their opinion, subjective projections and blatant stereotyping by emulating the forms and language of academic scientific publications without the necessary discipline of replicable empirical measurement which gives such experiments their authority.

    They mearly observed what was actually happening. The interpretation is irrelevant. Everyone can look at the posts and clearly see what the author observed.
