Aligning, integrating and applying the behavioural sciences

“You can’t know what you don’t know” – Chris Cowan, 1998

Updated: 24 August 2019


Welcome to my Blog & Pages where you can learn about me, the work I do, my approach to developing what I call Integrated SocioPsychology and my sociopsychologically-informed views on life – from major events in the world to personal ruminations on my own thinking and attitudes. Go to Key Updates to find out what the latest changes and additions to the site are.

Knowing Me-Knowing You coverBased primarily on the Gravesian approach, Hans J Eysenck’s Dimensions of Temperament, Robert Dilts’ Neurological Levels construct and the science of Memetics, Integrated SocioPsychology presents a structure to align and integrate the behavioural sciences. Consequently the concept postulates the complementarity of much in the academic disciplines of Psychology and Sociology and what are often considered alternative fields such as Neuro-Linguistic Programming.

This web site carries a real flavour and much information as to how Integrated SocioPsychology is being developed (by myself and others). However, greater detail and elaboration can be found in my book, ‘Knowing Me, Knowing You: an Integrated SocioPsychology Guide to Personal Fulfilment & Better Relationships’.

You can learn more about me and my work in About Me… The Services I provide fall into the following broad areas:-

About This Site… provides an overview of what the site is about and some guidance on how to get the best out of it. About This Site… also contains the ‘legal stuff’! The pages can be searched via the topics menus at the top of each page and post. The most recent Blog posts are linked in the sidebar to the right. Going through the Blog page in the top menu enables the posts to be scrolled through page by page in reverse chronological order – ie: newest to oldest. Comments are usually invited for Blog posts and many of the theory and application pages also allow comments to be made by visitors to the site. The most recent comments for both posts and pages are linked in the sidebar. Categories and the most used tags are also shown in the sidebar and a key word search box is at the top right of each post and page. (You can search on theorists and researchers or concepts, theories and models. As this site is very oriented towards practical applications of the behavioural sciences, you can also search on topical areas listed in menu bar sections – eg: politicians, countries and ongoing debates from local to geopolitical.)

So…Visitor, as you explore my site, ask yourself…

  • What is it you want to achieve and why
  • How will you know when you’ve got what you want?
  • What do you need from others that will help you get what you want – and why should they help you?
  • Since there is a cost to most things, what are you prepared to do or give up to get what you want?
  • ..and, when you look at it globally and holistically, just what is it that stops you getting what you want or being who you want to be

If you like what you find on this site, please do recommend it to others. If you’re involved in social networking, there are buttons at the bottom of the pages and posts to facilitate you in making a recommendation via Facebook, Twitter,  etc. There is also a button on the lower right side panel if you would like to make a donation towards the running costs of this site.

Please note I am in the process of developing this new site based around what was originally my Blog. This involves transferring material I intend maintaining and developing from the old site to pages on this site which will be the centre of my web operations and materials for the foreseeable future. The transition is likely to take 3-4 years…so please be patient with the inevitable duplication and broken links! Although menus on this new site may point to pages, the pages may still lack content as the pertinent material from the old site has yet to be transferred. In most cases, you will find a link on the page to its equivalent on the old site to find what you are looking for.

Once material has been transferred, it will be taken down from the old site. So, if you have a page from the old site bookmarked as a ‘favourite’ and, on your latest visit, it no longer exists, then please look for the equivalent page on this new site.

The front-end software for maintaining the old site has now become so unstable I can no longer use it. Accordingly, the menus on the old site will increasingly point to non-existent pages as the content on them is taken down or transferred to the new site.
