Hi, i am 22 years old I have problem regarding thoughts. Like given so much attention in a particular thing. And I always have doubt like in choosing things eg like in online shopping, choosing so much which one should I get. This or that colour later regret it. And i always doubt myself, I feel like I have to be perfect. Please help me out. Is everything okay with me?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

It is not too bad but you must do some work before this gets out of hand. The need to be perfect is often driven by fear. You will then want to control everything and everybody around you and end up with control issues. This fear will also create confusion about decisions and that is where you are having problem choosing. You cannot be right or perfect all the time. In life we often take risks knowing that if it is wrong we stand to lose. Find out about this fear to know whether it was formed in early childhood and take that information to a counselor and work on that fear. When you have resolved that a lot of things will fall in place and you will pick up a lot of confidence too.

Lybrate-user, depressions are the impressions of our behaviour and it is part of life, but strong hearted and strong minded people come out of such problems very soon. Try to overcome the situation rather that brooding about it and if you work strongly in that direction and try to find out a solution, you will surely succeed but the real thing is to act rather than to sit idle and give it the name depression asking others for a way out whereas you yourself knows the right way.

That only means that you are good for others but not good enough to take care of yourself. When you listen to and help too many other people and do not take care of yourself adequately, you will experience something like a burnout i.e. you will feel the exhaustion of taking care of others and may even collapse from it. so the solution is to meet with a counselor and take personal care of yourself. This can happen to professionals like us too and so we always have a confidante to talk to. You will need to find such a person either in a counselor or a good friend who could be older and wiser to you. In the meantime, do regular exercise, eat healthily, and make sure you have good rest int eh form of sleep. You could do with a little training in handling emotions too. You can give only what you have so build up reserves of strength emotionally and psychologically if you want to continue to help others. Otherwise, just stop being there for others for some​ time.

There is no need to be alarmed to this extent but you do need to develop some control over these desires because if left unattended and if you indulge in it, you may feed into impulses where you may one day lose control. Between the ages of 16 to 18 years, for a duration of almost exactly two years, all boys and girls will have a spurt in the production of the male sex hormone, testosterone. Due to this hormone there are three identified effects, all because of this chemical: you will become sexually active; you will become aggressive and rebellious; and you will all suffer acne and pimple problems. You have no choice because this is a body clock mechanism that gets activated and over the two years that it prevails, it will gradually subside and return to normal. But during this time you could (driven by the hormones) do something inadvertent that there may be no turning the clock back. So you need to exercise control and channelize this energy through games and sports and hobbies. Also, you would have developed secondary sexual characteristics and they seek to be used and seek fulfillment. Again this is not a problem but the drive can be very bad for those who do not have sufficiently well-developed value systems or a good conscience. These kids can lose control and become reckless. Most kids have a problem, like you do, around their sexual urges and may resort to acting out in the form of masturbation, pornography, and other sexual exploits. If you indulge in any of these you can get into a guilt trip or develop an addiction that may plague you for a long time. There is no threat to your mental well being. Your character will certainly be tested, and it will reflect your development in this regard. The best thing to do is to get a sex education from a counselor and ask all the questions you wish answered. Otherwise, you will want to experiment or seek information from your peers who are not adequately qualified to really do justice to your queries.

As I am having a habit of chewing tobacco since last 25 years and I am very addict to it I have tried many times but couldn't succeed now I am 42 years old.in what way you can help me.

First of all you are thinking of quieting tobacco chewing. You need daily counseling support for some days to overcome chewing tobacco. Generally chewing tobacco help in feeling more secure mentally, You feel much secure while chewing initially and later make you slave to chewing tobacco later. You need to develop aversion attitude daily towards tobacco. Since it is not possible to do it by yourself you need to have assistance from counseling psychologist for the same.

How are Psychological tests helpful?

Masters in Clinical Psychology

How are Psychological tests helpful?

Psychological assessment — also known as psychological testing — is done to help a psychologist better understand an individual and provide valuable insights into the individual’s behavior, skills, thoughts and personality. Psychological testing commonly includes intelligence testing, personality testing, and skills testing, among other areas.

Psychological assessment is never focused on a single test score or number. Every person has a range of competencies that can be evaluated through a number of methods. A psychologist is there to evaluate the competencies as well as the limitations of the person, and report on them in an objective but helpful manner. A psychological assessment report will not only note weaknesses found in testing, but also the individual’s strengths.

It has often ben said that 'you are what you think'. It is the human mind which enabled the entire race to dominate over the planet over millions of other species. How can this very complex instrument is so difficult to understand? The human mind is capable of extreme highs and lows in terms of every aspect such as emotions, achievement, empathy anger and so forth. One field of study is Psychology which does help us in its understanding. 

What are psychological tests?

Psychological tests are a method to gauge various parameters of an individual’s mind and how it works. There are not one but multiple psychological tests which help with determining various aspects of a person’s mental functioning and capabilities among others. Like medical tests such as X-rays and various types of blood reports help us get a better picture of the condition of your body, similarly, psychological testing helps us a get a better view of a person’s thinking and if at all there are any problems with it. Just a few examples of psychological testing are as follows – 

  1. Aptitude testing in children to check for learning disabilities 
  2. Testing for skills such as dexterity or flexibility, and reaction time to look for brain damage or dementia
  3. Memory tests to look for psychological disorders as well as dementia
  4. Testing for anxiety related disorders especially in social conditions, both in children and adults

How are these helpful?
More than pinpointing psychological disorders, these tests are meant to help an individual point out problems and then start on a treatment or therapy to overcome the problems. These tests can help a person in many ways such as – 

  1. Identifying problems early on when they are mild, thus making treatment more effective
  2. Help them further in studies or their career where certain conditions or problems were becoming an impediment
  3. Provide methods to tackle a phobia
  4. Sometimes, psychological testing is very helpful in diagnosing serious mental issues such as depression which may force many to take their own lives; thus preventing it
  5. Helping to combat physiological problems in cases where no pathological causes are found. In many cases, stress and anxiety lead to other disorders like diabetes, hypertension, gastrointestinal troubles and others. Once the psychological side is treated after correct diagnosis, the physical problems also tend to dissipate. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychologist.

It may take years to get the problem solved by medicines but may take 2-3 months by surgical procedures in which they will relive the fibrosis at temporomandibular joint causing restrictions in opening mouth. The surgical treatment may cost you about 20,000 Rs by an cosmetic ENT surgeon.

You must immediately seek help from a counselor. Your fear is creating an obsession and that is leading to anxiety. The stress of this anxiety is causing the indigestion and therefore weakness. Before it gets out of control and difficult to deal with seek help earlier, especially about this fear. If the fear is of recent origin, you could perhaps identify it and deal with it. But if it is from a long past, then much work has to be done to sort that out. If medication is required please cooperate with both the therapies to get the best results. Sometimes this kind of nervousness could be genetic too. In the meantime you must do certain things to build your constitution physically, spiritually, emotionally, and mentally. Mental stability can be achieved by learning a few skills in handling emotions in an appropriate manner. Stress management skills, which have a lot to do with expressing emotions, will need to be a major part of your recovery program. Emotionally you need the help of a counselor and that will help you tremendously to move from anxiety to normal fear. Please persevere and cooperate through all the support you need and you will come through successfully. Develop your body’s health by physical fitness through exercise, good rest (sleep), and a proper diet. Any way what you need to focus on is to do vigorous exercise of the aerobic kind for the heart’s fitness; meditation for the brain’s fitness; sleep for a well rested mind and body; a sound spiritual well being for good confidence and stability; and a diet with lots of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. Vigorous exercise, especially of the callisthenic kind, will make your heart, which is a muscle, grow larger; and then your heart will need to beat less often and you will respond to the anxiety with a calmer disposition. If your mind, constitution, and your emotions are in check and fit, you will never be disturbed again.

Dear, stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it's an omnipresent part of life. A stressful event can trigger the? fight-or-flight? response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. A little bit of stress, known as? acute stress? can be exciting? it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or? chronic stress? can have detrimental effects on health. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. I need to know, what are the causes with which you are stressed? once you know the reason, you will be able to adjust with it with some tips and tricks. Please let me know the details. Take care.

My friend is a regular chain smoker he smoke more than 20 cigarette per day. I want him to leave smoking. What should be done. Any advice.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
It is indeed a very noble thought that you want to help your friend. However, it is now very clear that in any addiction, the addict must want to stop the habit himself for any success. All you can do is keep advising him, but also highlight the dangers of tobacco smoke with correct information. And believe me that it is indeed very scary. One thing that hits a lot of youngsters, boys in particular, is that you will lose your erectile capacity and over a period of time even your sexual potency can diminish. And of course everyone has heard about cancer, which is very frightful. You could take him to any police station or cancer hospital to view the condition of cancer-caused disfigurement and it is horrific. These things do help in dissuading people from smoking. In other words, create awareness such that it works as a deterrent to further smoking. You would have done him a great favor.

Sir I have a stammering problem. And I m very tired from this again and again. So please sir consult me.

Dear Upendra, Welcome to lybrate. Stammering is "speaking with sudden involuntary pauses and a tendency to repeat the initial letters of words" or "say something with difficulty, repeating the initial letters of words and with sudden involuntary pauses". Stammering could be due to two reasons. First reason is Vocal cord misalignment. Second is Psychological performance anxiety. First of all you should consult an ENT Specialist and evaluate your vocal chords. If there is problem, ENT specialist will be able to correct it. If there is no problem with your vocal chords, You should consult a psychologist for stammer therapy. Take care.
