University Psychology Exam Asked Students to Assess Politicians From TV

Psychology exam paper

Today, I received a copy of the psychology exam for the masters in neurology and psychiatry at Ain Shams university. The students were given this brief essay question "You are asked to assess the thinking of a famous politician through watching him in TV show. Discuss briefly the standards you will look for during your assessments." (see photo above Q3.B)

Psychiatry, politics and propaganda

I wrote an article for Mada on the unethical practice of diagnosing politicians from a distance.

Psychiatrist Mostafa Hussein writes about the dangers of asking renowned psychiatrists to profile politicians, political groups and society at large on television shows.

I learnt from Al-Masry Al-Youm and Youm7 that the army is exhibiting its Hepatitis C detection device (C-Fast) at the EgyMedica fair held at the Cairo Conference Centre.

The Revolution in Diagnosis

Africa has cured AIDS many times before

The Egyptian military, with their recently announced Complete Cure device, is hardly the first to claim unproven cures for diseases that have ravaged millions of lives. Since the discovery of HIV/AIDS, unproven cures have been advertised and often endorsed by governments all over the world and specially Africa, the continent with the highest rates of infection.

Sharing my depressing thoughts on Egypt

I am slowly developing an apathy towards the current political process. Not sure if future elections are meaningful.

There are no credible politicians left. Maybe few untainted ones exist but they hardly can be popular enough to win seats in any elections, either because they represent fringe ideology or have been smeared by everyone in power.
