Over the years, I have read hundreds of books. Most of the writing found at Psychology fanatic is a product of information found in these books. The first essays I wrote between 2010-2017 have very little direct references to the books. In 2018 I began to make references to the books and adding peer reviewed articles to support the ideas. By 2021, the articles almost exclusively have transformed into referenced and researched topics.
