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.

  1. Hey Dr Martin, You are the first doctor I have found with a blog. I am sure there are more, but yours appears in the Google haystack first!

    I can see why you like “Understand Your Mind”. Jeremy writes in an entertaining and informative way.

    I am just starting out on the web with a self-help site – TotalSelfImprovement.com – and would love for your to take a look and let me know what you think.

    I love empowering people to grow beyond the mediocre, to see that there really are no limits other than their own self-imposed limits.

    The site is being built as I go so some pages and links need some TLC.


  2. Hi Geoff,

    Not sure what you were searching on Google to say I’m the only Dr you could find with a blog, but it’s certainly a rarity.

    Had a look at your site, and I’d sort of expected the sign-up page to be on the front. I’m always happy to see more self-improvement stuff around from people who appreciate what Jeremy does.

    Oh, and the email address you left didn’t work.

  3. I am sorry about the email. I am still getting used to the strict filtering on my system. I have put a special email link in this comment.

    Thank you for your feedback. There is now a sign-up form on the home page.
