The Truth About What YouTube REALLY Does To Your Brain...

  • Bottom line: there's a lot more to being a so*****th than being an @$$hole. And they said I'd never use my college education! (have to censor the words because apparently USclip doesnt like them and suppresses your video! Fun!)

    I have a degree in Behavioural Psychology, which focuses a little more on a Behavioural analysis perspective, but this video was SO well done from an educational and scientific point of view. Thank you for shedding light!

      Agreed from someone who’s a behavioral neuroscientist. xD It alters brain circuitry for sure. I actually don’t watch USclip vlogs or go on social media often at all because I dislike those who lack empathy and mean people. A lot. In other words, those who aren’t emotionally intelligent aren’t my kind of people. Even working in science I can’t stand other scientists because sure they’re intelligent, but it’s only logical/mathematical. Scientists often lack emotional intelligence because doctoral programs, including mine, push you to be the smartest and focus on the small details, but they don’t have you focus on the big picture or other implications. It makes sense that some physicians, like surgeons, are narcissistic because you have to think you’re smart and be confident in your surgery skills, but it’s how these doctoral programs are. I’m very much unlike other scientists. I don’t fit in with anyone, really lol. I’m definitely eccentric, which I personally don’t think is bad like the norm does. It can get lonely, though, because everyone is so selfish.

    I’ve just finished my psychology A Level (UK) and the operant conditioning is literally perfect explanation! I’ve watched this video many times when it was released but I just remembered how good it was so I came back and holly shit Gabbie that’s so good. Can’t wait to come back to studying psychology at uni because you start to look at life in a much different way when you study human behavior, you understand more when you know the basics of human impulses and reasons behind their motivation, intentional or unintentional.

    I find it so weird how a lot of UScliprs are unhappy with themselves or parts of their lives because that’s the whole reason I can’t be a USclipr. Or it’s just my depression making me think I can’t because my depression makes me feel like no one cares about what I think.

  • Angela Grace
    Angela Grace 26 days ago

    This is pretty much the reason I don’t post much on my channel anymore. Even when I did I doubted anyone would even care. . I’m not creative/talented enough to be a USclipr and I’m trying to accept that.

    I liked this video alot. For some reason though when she was talking about people doing nice things for others on camera. I legit thought about David dobrik... I don't really watch his vlogs anymore because of the sole fact of most of them being about how he "buys" all these cars for his friends and stuff. I legit do not believe he would be doing it without a camera. But that's just my opinion. If it's a birthday gift I wouldn't be recording it for views. I would do it out of love and to make them happy. I just get a vibe that it's not as real as they make it as well because most of them don't act that "surprised"

    What motivates UScliprs is, well, what you've said: money. I show up to work each day not because I'm a narcissist or sociopath, but because I need money. What might have been more interesting is the psychology of USclip subscribers and the perceived pseudo-relationships evolved watching sympathetic influencers and how that attraction has been commodified or monetized.

    Psychopaths don’t feel emotion. Sociopaths do. There’s different levels of it but sociopaths are capable of having relationships and having genuine human emotions. I’m disappointed that you gave into the incorrect assumption of it. There’s a difference.

    • Maddie Fernandez
      Maddie Fernandez 4 months ago

      Jennifer Baxter No you have them mixed up. Sociopaths are able to feel, it’s actually rare for a diagnosed sociopath to be completely emotionally inept. Psychopaths don’t have emotions

    • Jennifer Baxter

      Sociopaths are known for lack of emotion and lack of guilt/shame. Psychopaths have feelings and emotions.

    This was incredibly well put. I mean you literally made me sit here and think am I a sociopath? Honestly who would really sit there and think that instead of being like nah, no way and not giving it another second of attention. You literally put this so clearly and weirdly, it was super entertaining that it made me question my character 😂 I’ve always been a fan but this literally made me want to start watching all of the ads as well as thumps up.

  • MorningStar

    I don't think you understand what a narcissist is. Npd is not just high self-esteem and attention seeking - these are things anyone can fact (in fact most people are like that). Mental illness is normal behavior exaggerated to the point where the patient cannot fully function in society. Narcissists don't just love themselves, the honestly, truly believe that they are always right no matter whether they are or not. I'm too sleep deprived to explain what it is but I'm just saying high self-esteem and attention seeking do not make you a narcissist.
    I agree with what you are saying about aspd, the reason why I honestly disliked Shane's series was because it demonized aspd and they were being incredibly inaccurate as far as facts go.
    I'm a psychology student, I'm planning on getting a doctorate in clinical psychology that's why I'm kinda passionate...

    YASS informative video! Factual fun. How depressing is public media though? The fact that the majority of kids now want to grow up to be some sort of attention-grabber is sad. I got reminded of the Black Mirror episode where everyone has to have an app that measures your likability/approval based on other people's impressions of you. The number amount you get rated overall dictates your privileges because people don't want to have anything to do with you if you are low-rated, including any type of worker like a barista or a waiter. If you have a super high-rating though you are more well-known and get special invites and top treatment. Boy does it feel like we could be headed towards that future. Actually I believe somewhere in China something like that started last year and the "unlikable" people started to become destitute. It's the age of the twilight zone, man. I think people need to learn the value of anonymity, and just how little "likability" has to do with societal value!

    Logan Paul is a sociopath and I think we all know about. His apology video and his reaction to KSI at the interview section before their match where he showed no reaction to ksi. 100% I just don’t think he feels real emotions and he’s cunning about it too because he’s created a persona that is so lovable to his audience.
