What They Write Us

Dear Dr. Dunbar:

In a December/05 article of the Washington post...www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2005/12/09/AR2005120901938.html... you are cited as saying that patients with moral judgment have a mental disorder. Do patients who are homosexuals also have a mental disorder? Is homosexuality a healthy lifestyle? Should I understand you consider homosexuality normal?

I, for example, do not believe homosexuality is a healthy lifestyle. Does this mean I have a mental disorder? But I don't feel depression sadness, anxiety nor fear toward homosexuals

Now, allow me to ask you: how often do YOU go to church? Why, you don't?

So, you have pathological prejudices and lack filtering capabilities! I advise you to question the basis for your beliefs and start taking antipsychotic drugs --STAT!

Thank you for your time and attention.

Honorable American friends,How do you do?  I am a Chinese students of Moslem people university .I have a new idea on psychology ,concerning Hitler.  I hope you can pass the important points of the theories on to the experts who study domestic psychology and sociology.  I think it is better to offer these ideas to the experts studying Hitler. In Hitler there exists two 'Is', one is himself,  which can be called the 'ego', the other is his fatherly image,  which can be called the 'super I'. During Hitler's childhood he was educated by his father whom he looked up to.  Hitler's father intentionally educated and guided him in his childhood and had his figure deeply rooted in Hitler's mind and formed his 'super Is'.  After growing up,  Hitler used his fathers ideas to mould his political career.  He treated the German people and individuals the same way his father raised him.  Hitler treated his nation,  public and other individuals as his father once treated him.  That is to say, the nation,  public and other individuals take the place of the young Hitler and become the object of the 'super I' of Hitler.
