Video: “The Lie of Behaviorism”

In Psychological and Spiritual communities, behaviorism shows up very frequently as a pervasively disempowering perspective. No one can accurately say with any blanket statement that there is right behavior and wrong behavior. There can be a million different reasons and energies behind a singular behavior, that it makes only the catalyzing power relevant, not the action.

Some examples of behaviorism include statements such as:

“You’re doing it wrong”

“What’s wrong with you?”

“You are Projecting”

“That’s your shadow talking”

“Women always act like ____ ”

“Kids should _____ ”

“No one in their right mind would ever ____”

“You shouldn’t believe ____! The truth is ____!”

Can you see how even seemingly internal or insightful perspectives are actually manipulative behaviorism?

Though sneaky and unclear, these statements are all about the speaker’s self-image and are not actually about what they seem to be about.
