CBT changed my life

I know Psychology gets a bad rap here, but it literally changed my life. I had severe social anxiety and CBT changed everything, simply being aware of your "inner self" and recognizing what "catastrophic thoughts" are and the importance of them is a revelation in itself. I remember reading about CBT and thinking it was garbage nonsense that pales in comparison to the change medicine could provide, but boy was I wrong. It was especially reassuring when I found out the circuitry of the brain is being rewired as you partake in CBT, this gave me the initial trust necessary to give it a chance. I used to downtalk psychology myself and make fun of the nebulosity and vagueness within the field, viewing it as a "lesser endeavour", but i realize now that this field has provided me with one of the most life changing tools I've ever wielded, and by far the most impactful.

So, while psychology may be a "soft science" and devoid of the rigour that is so highly praised here (me included), I advise against throwing the baby out with the bath water regarding it, there are serious, and I mean SERIOUS gems within it.

    You're just really into the old wiener and ball torture eh? I know everyone finds different things therapeutic, but I can't say I'd ever thought about having my balls hit with a wrench as an exercise in life changing therapy.

          You mean the psychologist, lol? That's funny, but I didn't even go to a psychologist, everything I've done has been self-taught, derived from a few CBT/SAD focused psychology books and online resources.

          I'm actually happy with where I'm at in my current progression, would I be making more progress if I were to go to a clinical psychologists? Probably, but I'm more than satisfied with the results of implementing self-taught protocols that unless I hit a serious plateau I don't think the cost is worth.

            interesting. so your solution is to remain adapted to a primitive lifestyle and take points from whatever abilities you could have developed without the extra burden, just because you think primitive is cool?
            it is not possible to keep some shit and get the juicy stuff, you must give up some shit to become better at other shit.
            your "first principles" analysis should have shown you that, at least by fricking now.

            You havnt been explicitly taught so you approach it from "on high" while having zero qualifications to do so.

            A part of the psy-op of society is to make people believe they know everything while teaching them incorrectly, now they hold the feelings of being all knowing but their subconscious knows theyre blind, making them very sesative to feeling ignorant as that contradicts their progeamming.

            Modern clinical psychology agrees with religion and philosophy that people are biologically programmed and socially conditioned to think, feel and act in ways that cause suffering for themselves and for others. Psychology, religion and philosophy also agree that ignorance of the ways in which we are biologically programmed and socially conditioned contributes to suffering. Therefore psychology, religion and philosophy also agree that suffering can be reduced by raising awareness of the ways in which we are biologically programmed and socially conditioned contributes to suffering. Humans vary in awareness of this.

      No, they're anxious because they have incredulous and negative awareness about themselves, a false awareness if you will. CBT doesn't aim to eliminate self awareness, just reframe it, and bring awareness away from the false negatives you've prescribed yourself. In fact, it promotes it, I've never been as self aware as I am now, all thanks to the techniques I've learned from CBT, I can recognize my inner self and correct it, I can recognize the interpretation filter and utilize it, etc etc.

      Self-awareness isn't some trait exclusive to a chosen few as you'd like to delude yourself to believe, I suspect this delusion is a fabrication of your own mind being used as a coping mechanism and positive trait you've assigned yourself to compensate for various issues you have with yourself.

      >Tell me you know nothing about CBT without telling me you know nothing about it.

      It addresses both the symptoms and source of the issue. It's one of the first things you learn in CBT, that your not actually afraid of social situations, but the fact that you will have to reveal to people the self-generated issues that you perceive yourself to have.

      E.g. "I'm an awkward loser" etc etc

      You learn to create new thought patterns and realize that these distortions are merely subjective fabrications of your inner self, and have no basis in reality. You also confront these things head on with exposure therapy and a few other methods to create new "core beliefs" about your self perception, thus fixing the source of the issue.

        That's only true from an enlightened perspective. From a survival perspective our relationships, job and income are determined by how others perceive us. Some of us perceive in a valid and reliable way that others determine our value to be relatively low and we suffer the consequences. That's why concepts like ''self-esteem'' are a grift: people have no other value than a market value. Psychotherapists are therefore representatives of the ruling class who shift collective problems to individuals.

          >That's only true from an enlightened perspective.

          It's true from every perspective, the vast majority of people who suffer from SAD consistently conjure up in their heads the worst case scenario and apply that to everything, along with their own self-generated perceptions of how others view them. Again, these thoughts aren't rooted in reality, the thoughts the SAD sufferer will produce and consequently impart on other people as opinions are merely products of their own self-perception issues.

          >From a survival perspective our relationships, job and income are determined by how others perceive us.

          Sure, but this has nothing to do with self-perception or imparting your own opinion of yourself unto others unilaterally. I'm also not sure what you mean by "enlightened vs survival".

          >Some of us perceive in a valid and reliable way that others determine our value to be relatively low and we suffer the consequences.

          Everyone can mind-read correctly every now and then, no doubt, but understand that SAD sufferers apply this to everyone, and 99% of the time, this isn't true. It's quite different than a well-adjusted person realizing that they aren't on the best footing with someone.

          Additionally, what consequences would you suffer from someone deeming your value relatively low? If you are dwelling on someone's opinion of you, or care that much about what people think of you, that would be an issue. This goes for everyone.

          >That's why concepts like ''self-esteem'' are a grift: people have no other value than a market value.

          Self-esteem is a grift? That's objectively false, everyone has a perception of their own value and worthiness. To your second point, not sure what you mean by "market value", that's extremely vague and could mean anything.

          Secondly, your value is largely a derivative of your own beliefs about yourself, these beliefs will influence every action, interaction, thought, feeling, and emotion you have, and the opinions you think others have.

            A superiority complex is a behavior that suggests a person believes they’re somehow superior to others. People with this complex often have exaggerated opinions of themselves. They may believe their abilities and achievements surpass those of others.

            However, a superiority complex may actually be hiding low self-esteem or a sense of inferiority.

            Psychologist Alfred Adler first described the superiority complex in his early 20th century work. He outlined that the complex is really a defense mechanism for feelings of inadequacy that we all struggle with.

            In short, people with a superiority complex frequently have boastful attitudes to people around them. But these are merely a way to cover up feelings of failure or shortcomings.

        but how does this address "your inner self"? How do you make it stop doing that?
        What you are describing is merely addressing the undesired thoughts and lessening their impact, rather than addressing what is causing them.
        Indeed, it presupposes that your issues are entirely self-constructed, but instead of addressing what constructs them, it teaches you coping strategies.
        It addresses symptoms, not the cause.

          Not at all, the source cause is well-known and is addressed. Coping strategies are a very small portion of CBT.

          If you want to take a deeper look into the subject I'd recommend the book "How to be yourself" by Ellen Hendriksen Ph.D.

          If you want something a bit harsher that focuses on the science more id recommend "Feeling good" by David Burns Ph.D.

    It's just training yourself to be delusional about your horrendous life situation and to deny reality.

      No it's training yourself to deny the delusional reality that your SAD affected brain has conjured up. Over time, your new thought patterns change your behavior, leading to a new "objective reality", but only by virtue of breaking your false reality that your inner self has created.

      It's clear you know nothing about this.

        >breaking your false reality
        this is bullshit. this implies human are fundamentally unable to perceive objective reality.
        or if they are, then what you are saying is that your framework specifically does not allow any human to ability to objectively perceive reality, that seems forbidden from the start.
        this is fricking religion

          *Sigh* Sometimes I ask myself why I take the time to teach ignoramuses, but anyways, here we go...

          YOUR reality ISNT objective. Reality is objective, yes, but not YOURS - the one you've created by way of your own thoughts. This is especially pronounced among SAD patients.

          You see, everyone jumps to conclusions regarding what they think will happen in the future, after all, the brain is a predictive machine and fears the unknown, we try to impart our subjective self-devised scenarios unto objective scenarios.

          E.g. "This person doesn't like me, they think I'm weird", "Talking to this girl will only result in rejection"

          This isn't objective reality, but YOUR subjective reality, which will inevitably influence objective reality by altering your thoughts, actions, behavior, and emotions to be in accordance with your self-perception. By fixing these thought distortions and negative self-concept, you fix your "objective reality". And I repeat, this is ESPECIALLY amplified in SAD patients, they consistently jump to the "worst case scenario" and apply it to every social situation.

            so you basically forbid any human being of being sad/depressed with the reality they live in? are you for real?
            you do not explain anything, you regurgitate your framework just like any religious zealot does. you do not think, you do not build, you do not understand. you apply something, end of discussion. is that it? that is fricking religion anon

            I mean...I can totally get someone near that with enough cognitive restructuring, but no, you aren't forbidding yourself from feeling sad or depressed, simply that these feelings are derived from proper circumstances rather than self inflicted falsities. Everything else you said was bunch of emotional in origin blah blah blah, don't let your emotions dictate thought anon.

            what if they are objective? do you tap out or do you try to trick the patient? for "ze greater good"?

      False dichotomy, CBT fixes the self-perception that you're broken. You can notice the system is broken while having a healthy self-concept, two separate entities.
