Is ePrime more than just a “semantic game”?

Posted by Rex Alexander on Sun 9 Dec 18 in ePrime, General Semantics, Uncategorized |
happy-bunny06.jpg (285×425) Someone recently wrote something to the effect that he embraces the principle of ePrime, but does not use it in ordinary conversation because it often sounds peculiar and therefore might alienate the OP.

Disguised “Should” statments

Posted by Rex Alexander on Sat 8 Dec 18 in Disguised shoulds, musterbation, musty thinking, ought, should statements, Why? questions |

REBT Mates, it may have been yours truly who coined the term “disguised shoulds.” Dishonest “why” questions are one of the most obvious examples. Dishonest “whys” pretend to ask for an explanation when in fact they are really making a “should” statement.

What is important?

Posted by Rex Alexander on Sat 8 Dec 18 in Homework, Values |

 

I love this Tracey Ullman bit about regretting not posting more pictures of her lunch on facebook.  It’s funny and it’s timely but it raises important questions about what is important in life.

Dare to Be Average!

Posted by Rex Alexander on Sat 8 Dec 18 in Books & Media, bookshop, David Burns, Perfectionism, Your Opinion Matters |

 

Dare to Be Average!

Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy
Chapter 14

~David Burns, M.D.

One of the most unusual, attention-grabbing, and in my opinion, important chapter titles ever in a self-help book of this kind.  But what on earth could be the reason for such a seemingly negative, almost anti-American sentiment?

I can’t stand it!

Posted by Rex Alexander on Fri 7 Dec 18 in Awfulzing |
Jonathan von Breton shared another Albert Ellis quote in his “The Daily Al” feature:
 
We say that nothing is awful, nothing. Rape, i

ncest, terrorism, Hitler-it isn’t awful. Not that they aren’t bad, but a rational person would recognize that the world is inherently unfair.”

Albert Ellis, Ph.D. … Founder of REBT

To which JvB adds:  “Awfulizing makes horrors out of inconveniences. It turns discomfort and pain into torture. Misfortune transforms into abject misery. Even those things that are really truly awful become AWFUL!!!. And that which is AWFUL!!! becomes AWFUL!!! times 10. There is nothing so bad that awfulizing can’t make infinitely worse.”

Will there always be an REBT?

Posted by Rex Alexander on Fri 7 Dec 18 in Albert Ellis, REBT & Other therapies compared |
Related imageOn another blog, a friend was gently ribbing me about my interest in “kooky” stuff like TaiChi and biofeedback  that has little to do with REBT-CBT.

Three musts which hold us back

Posted by Rex Alexander on Fri 7 Dec 18 in Albert Ellis, Demanding, Disguised shoulds, musterbation, musty thinking, should statements |

 

HOMEWORK

OK, we know that REBT emphasizes various types of demands, including but not limited to, shoulds, oughts and musts, as well as a number of what I refer to as  disguised shoulds typically insincere  “Why?” questions.
