Understand Your Mind

One of the things I did when I put this website up, was I did a quick hunt of other websites and blogs that might be of interest to me.

I very quickly stopped hunting!

It was immensely time-wasting, and mostly left me shaking my head with each line I read.

However in that immense haystack I found one shining glittering needle, and I have been an avid reader ever since.

I mean, I just had to read further with such titles as…

“Why We do Dumb or Irrational Things”

“How and Why We Lie to Ourselves”

And the generic classic…

“10 Weirdest Psychology Studies”

His current post is on “Absent-Mindedness: A Blessing in Disguise?” as part 2 in “a new series on the 7 deadly sins of memory.”

Just what I was looking for 🙂

The author Jeremy Dean combines good clear writing with a tight focus on available evidence from the research literature and comes up with a very entertaining, informative and challenging blog.

I thoroughly recommend you check out “PsyBlog: Understand Your Mind” at:

Oh, and if you have any suggestions for other good places that you’ve found from your own haystack hunting (even if it’s your own site), leave a comment below for me to take a look.

For Website & Ezine Owners

Do you have a website, or publish an ezine or newsletter?

I have a few resources currently set up that might be of interest to you.

Firstly, if you would like to receive free, quality articles for your newsletter then send an email to Martin (that’s me) at with some details. I’m happy to send my latest articles to you to help you provide valuable and interesting content for your readers.

Secondly, I have an article directory where you might be interested in having your own articles published.

Thirdly, I have also set up a resource links directory which you can access here.

These last two directories have been installed over the weekend so that I haven’t had my favorite resources and articles added yet. At this stage it will only be of interest if you have your own website or newsletter.

If you have some particularly good articles and resources I look forward to mentioning them on my blog to make sure they get the attention they deserve.
