Marshalscienceguy Posted November 19, 2014 Share Posted November 19, 2014 I know what is psychologically well according to school. Psychologically well for school means your over zealous, always smiling, when someone hits you that you cry, when someone calls you a mean name you cry, when someone dies in a movie you cry, when someone gets in a fight with you that you are upset about it for a week. If you are able to make a cold calculated decision under a lot of pressure that means something is wrong with you for not letting the pressure get to you. Now I could see where these traits would help in high stress jobs such as military or cop or security. However when you do this in school you are considered a sociopath and a possible threat to other children. So is there a difference in what is considered mentally well for work vs what is mentally well for school? In school they said I was mentally well for not crying over tiny things and not really making a huge deal about things. I was very sympathetic for things like "Oh your dog died? Im so sorry" as I knew that was something major and worth crying over. Since I thought most things were really petty. Such as "I just beat level 100 on dragon master! I am so awesome" and I really wont understand why they care so much. This is considered a sign of a mentally unwell person. Since clearly I should be overly excited about an insignificant achievement that they had when I really dont see the purpose in caring. I was going to take a psyche exam for a job but concerned based on what was considered mentally unstable behavior in the past. Am I going to fail it? I dont know whats considered correct. I just know that its expected you care WAY MORE than I do. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
