More on Neurofeedback

Neurofeedback worked wonders for me at the beginning of my withdrawal process.  I got off my antidepressant and then off about 1/2 of my drugs with the help of neurofeedback. For the drug naive it very well may be an important  key to staying off meds for some people. For people on drugs just a... Continue Reading →

Creativity: A Crime Of Passion — creative children are often those who are called difficult

First, teachers were asked if they valued creativity and enjoyed working with creative students, and they overwhelmingly answered "yes". Next, they were asked to look at their own students and rate them on a variety of traits, ranging from highly creative traits, such as being determined, independent, individualistic, impulsive, and likely to take risks, to traits that are associated with low levels of creativity, such as peaceable, reliable, tolerant, steady, and practical. After they rated their students on these traits, they were asked to rate them from their least favorite to most favorite students. Interestingly, there was a significant negative correlation between the degree of creativity of the student and his favorable rating by the teachers. This means that the most creative students were the least favorite of the teachers, across the entire sample surveyed.
