Posted by Rex Alexander on Mon 14 Jan 19 in Acceptance, Awfulzing, General Semantics |

A reader is confused about labels and self-rating

 Rate behavior . . . not self, and you are doing good ePrime and  on the right track for doing good REBT.  This process is even more comprehensible and user-friendly if you learn something about ePrime, which is not too much of a stretch   2,452 total views, no views today Originally posted 2013-07-17 02:39:22.

Is ePrime more than just a “semantic game”?

Posted by Rex Alexander on Sun 9 Dec 18 in ePrime, General Semantics, Uncategorized |
