    Would you trust a shrink, a Muslim, or a Muslim shrink?


    This poll is anonymous, and no one should read obscure motives into my posting, nor the responses.

    I am curious about peoples actual, personal feelings, as opposed to the principles by which they live and act, which are often non-emotional, or at odds with their natural inclinations.

    Frankly, the religion has no bearing (to me). It depends on what psychological method they use, and whether or not they are good at it. We all have our personal biases, and many of us can perform a professional job without letting our biases interfere. It all boils down to the individual.

    No change.

    There are 1.2 billion muslims in the world, I doubt their rate of people going nuts is any higher than any other race/religion.

    More importantly: Would you trust a shrinking Muslim??? Or a shrinking Muslim population?

    Would you trust a shrink, a Muslim, or a Muslim shrink?
    Depends. I've trusted both of the former, at one time or another, and my trust was not proven to be misplaced.


    In light of recent events, do you feel altered trust for these types?
    In light of recent events? No.
    I didn't know that guy.
    The vast majority of serial killers are white.
    I don't mistrust my dad, my kids, or my husband simply because they're also white guys.
    That would be silly.
    Andrea Yates is a white woman. That fact doesn't cause me to mistrust myself.

    Trust is earned not granted on a whim. IMO.
    Jackboots always come in matched pairs, a left boot and a right boot.

    No change. My trust for shrinks couldn't diminish much more if it tried-- I'm working on that-- my trust for Muslims starts out the same as my trust for anyone else I don't know, and a Muslim shrink is still a goddamned shrink.

    Everyone's an enemy until I know better.

    What about my trust level for unmarried males, military personnel (esp. Majors), people named Nidal, people stationed in Ft. Hood, or slightly balding people with dark hair??

    Would those be at all relevant?

    If anything my trust level for a previously unknown Major that is an unmarried muslim psychiatrist, who is slightly balding and stationed in Ft. Hood named Nidal plummeted.

    Any of the above descriptors individually.. no change whatsoever.
