In science we go with the evidence and not belief – for that reason I am strongly against these ideas as legitimate claims of personality development as there is no evidence whatsoever.
I agree with Alex, so won’t say the same things, but I would like to add from a psychological perspective how interesting these theories are and what it says about us as humans for the strange and occult.
I think it’s something silly like 70 million Americans read their horoscopes daily and 25% of them also believe that the stars effect our daily lives. I am so intrigued as to why people would think this! It says a lot about us as humans wanting to understand behaviour, but why people don’t turn to science for this is sometimes a bit beyond me – but perhaps I am jaded as a scientist and stuck in my ways of thinking! But what is fundamental from all of us is a desire to understand who we are, where we come from and why we do what we do – perhaps some find comfort and answers from these things, me, not so much!
