Right now I'm in a class called Counseling Psychometrics, it's a little bit about psychological tests, a lot about statistics, and a whole lot of confusing. There are a few classes I took in my undergrad at MUW that I was able to skate through without learning a thing. I took two whole years of French and I can still only really say Bonjour and Voulez-vous coucher avec moi? (Think Moulin Rouge)! I don't have an ear for languages, but I did enjoy reading The Little Prince and eating all that French food. Yum Crepes.
Philosophy flew over my little ditzy blonde head, and I only remember learning the definition of a tautology (which I don't think is even a philosophical term, uhh maybe it is, see I still don't know a thing). And then of course there was applied statistics. I had a rather brilliant but flighty professor who wasn't the best at conveying the concepts, and plus the class was in the computer lab, and that was that time period when Britney Spears was really losing her marbles, so I would spend the whole class reading Perezhilton.com (this was before I realized how freakin mean Perez really is, and stopped encouraging the cruelty).
Most people in the class think our current professor looks like Jason Hammer from Iron Man 2. I told them that I think he looks like a leprechaun, and they told me I was just being mean. But I swear he does! Anyway, when he starts going over all those statistical concepts, we all just start looking around at each other like, "Do you understand what he is saying?" None of us are majoring in counseling because we are good at math. But when we talk about the psychological testing aspect it is somewhat interesting. And last week one of the teams did a presentation on the Rorschach Ink Blot test. You know the test when you interpret ink blots, and if you see sunshine & rainbows you are a good person, if you see gruesome acts you are a psychopath, and if you see dirty things you are just a pervert. It's like an adult version of seeing shapes in the cloud!
After their presentation rapped, they gave us this little hand out with all the little ink-blots on them. But we had no time to look at them because soon we had to get into our teams and do a little group project. But the project didn't take much time, so I whipped out the ink blots so we could check them out.*
