Quick chat with @psycholotea
Q: What made you interested in psychology and which was the first psychology book you liked a lot?
A: What made me interested in psychology was an experience I had in high school. I used to have a best friend who stole a guy from me. We had been dating a few weeks but I wasn’t sure if I liked enough him yet and she was like “he’s so handsome if you don’t want him im gonna steal him from you” and she literally did and I just couldn’t believe one of my own best friends would do something like that. The question “how could someone i love do something like that to me?” I questioned what pushes or drives people to act or behave certain ways, and I was hooked onto behavioral psychology. I’ve read a few psychology books but my favorite one was from my social psychology class, the book is literally called social psychology and it was one of my favorite classes so I ended up reading the whole book on my own.
Q : How did you discover this twitter subculture and who were the first people you became a fan of?
A: I discovered this Twitter subculture while using the app for my “news”. I followed a lot of right wing politicians/commentators and psychologists such as Jordan Peterson and Adam Smith. Similar tweets and accounts would come out from topics I followed and I slowly made my way into holistic Twitter. One of the first girls I remember following that I absolutely loved was holistichoney, she just speaks her mind and doesn’t care I love that about her.
Q: Which are your favorite accounts in the twitter space right now?
A: Some of my favorite accounts at the moment:
Q: What supplements are in your house right now? Which one made the most difference?
A: Magnesium Glycinate, Maca root, fenugreek, quercetin, vitamin C, Zinc, black seed oil, ginger root, DHA, ginkgo biloba, lions mane. There are 4 supplements that I had custom made from my nutritionist and those are the one that have made the most impact, but they don’t have like a name, it was a mix made to slow down my nervous system and balance hormones.
Q: Which women should we date more? Introverted or extroverted?
A: I believe In balance when it comes to relationships so if you’re an introverted man then maybe an extroverted woman would help balance and vice versa. I’ve noticed my best chemistry with guys was with someone who had a certain amount of opposite traits and introvert vs extrovert balance is pretty important to me. I CAN be extroverted if I wanted to but I know I tend to be more introverted so I love an extroverted man.
Q: Can you share a challenge you've faced and shaped your perspective?
A: One of the biggest challenges I’ve faced in my life was migrating from Mexico to the US. It’s something that happened so long ago, it was when I was 8 but as I am noticing today this is something that had an enormous impact not only on myself but my entire family. It’s actually something we’re all getting over and rethinking about now that my siblings and I are growing up, more specifically my older brother and I being independent adults now. My younger brother still may not realize how much it affected him as much but he’s smart enough to know that for sure it affects us.
Q: Favorite training split?
A: My current one is:
Monday: Legs (Quads focus)
Tuesday: Back and a little shoulder.
Wednesday: Legs (Glute focus)
Thursday: Upper body
Friday: Legs (Hamstrung focus)
Q: Favorite conspiracy theories if you have any.
Flat earth theory, Denver Airport, Illuminati and Hollywood, adrenochrome.
I know there’s so many more but I can’t think of more off the top of my head haha I mean at this point everything is a conspiracy since they lied to us about everything 😭😭😭
Thank you for the interview.
