Is ePrime more than just a “semantic game”?

Posted by Rex Alexander on Tue 19 Nov 19 in ePrime, General Semantics, Uncategorized |

  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 other person.   1,276 total views, 14 views today Originally posted 2012-12-31 03:20:25.

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   3,021 total views, 1 views today Originally posted 2013-07-17 02:39:22.

A faithful reader asks What’s the best response to “I should have ______  (done x y z more) and if I had, things would be different now”?     Thank you.” Ah, yes!  Our “Darling Shoulds!”  How we resist relinquishing them!   As if they were some jewel more precious than diamonds!   😉  6,539 total views, 2 views today Originally […]
