6 B.S. Facts about Psychology that Everybody Believes (Warning: Coarse language)
Among the "facts" our Cracked writer calls out --
"If you let your anger out, you'll feel better." This psychobabble myth is probably responsible for a huge chunk of violent crime in this country, including domestic violence and road rage.
"Just believe in yourself, and you'll succeed!" This mantra has left a lot of kids emotionally crippled and is another contributing factor to violent crime. Nobody's quite as likely to lash out as somebody with artificially inflated "self esteem" whose bubble has been burst.
