The United State Army has released a teaching program which will aid soldiers and their families in recognizing the symptoms of both mTBI and post-traumatic stress disorder. 1.2 million soldiers in groups of 40 to a class will be put through the mandatory training. Both the Pentagon and the American Psychological Association claim that army mental health services are lacking in funding and staff. Teaching resources are available for download at the army site to soldiers and to Family Readiness Group Leaders, but not to [any other] civilians.

I am glad to see the Army [at last?] taking a pro-active approach to both head injury and p.t.s.d.

Something Different

This is the results of a "brain test." Non-scientific but still fun. sapphoq healing t.b.i.

Your brain: 60% interpersonal, 160% visual, 40% verbal, and 140% mathematical!

Congratulations on being 400% smart! Actually, on my test, everyone is. The above score breaks down what kind of thinking you most enjoy doing. A score above 100% means you use that kind of thinking more than average, and a score below 100% means you use it less. It says nothing about how good you are at any one, just how interested you are in each, relatively. A substantial difference in scores between two people means, conclusively, that they are different kinds of thinkers.

Matching Summary: Each of us has different tastes. Still, I offer the following advice, which I think is obvious:

  1. Don't date someone if your interpersonal percentages differ by more than 80%.
  2. Don't be friends with someone if your verbal percentages differ by more than 100%.
  3. Don't have sex with someone if their math percentage is over 200%.
