Taught on 3.0, learned 3.5. DMed 3.5 for many years and love it still.

Favorite variants: Spell points, prestigious character classes, sorceror metamagic specialist, racial paragon classes, cloistered cleric, paladin of freedom, complex skill checks, weapon groups, craft points and summon monster variants.

Anyone playing in my game knows: Think outside the box, fear the rakshasa, demons are never your friend and a party that can't find traps will indeed die by them.

Favorite DnD aspects: Roleplay and character personality development, long spanning adventures that convey useful things (tree of life, chakras... meaning), inventiveness and ingenuity.

Method Actor You think that gaming is a form of creative expression. You may view rules as, at best, a necessary evil, preferring sessions where the dice never come out of the bag. You enjoy situations that test or deepen your character's personality traits.

comment What is the relative effectiveness of self initiated versus therapy approaches to repairing damaged body schema?
@NickStauner Ramachandran is definitely the who's who in phantom limbs, at least that's the impression I got from my research project (especially this Ted Talks video). It's part of what sparked this question; If the mirror neuron effect exists within us, then is it necessary (I won't touch the advisable part) to depend on others for care.

@caseyr547 awesome link! Didn't know House covered that one. I am familiar with Ramachandran actually. It's hard not to find something by him when researching phantom limb sensation/pain. The mirror box is very fascinating and definitely outlines the core of body schema problems (proprioceptive sense, etc.). If you can find sources highlighting individual tasks (using alone, no need for 'pro' advice) versus physician-guided it would be within the scope I'm aiming for.

@NickStauner haha! I hadn't even put those two together, you're right. Agreed! I've not got much rep here, but there's at least enough to throw at this question. I'm still very interested in an answer and this is the only SE question I've ever asked that didn't get any replies.

comment Can we change our personalities?
@Taal not quite what I meant, but fair enough. On debate: I'm only an amateur Jung fan, a hobby here and there. The worst thing you can do for a cause is poorly represent it. I do hope someone better versed in Jung than I can drop by and address your assertions against his structures, though.

comment Can we change our personalities?
@Taal if you're interested in arguing Jung, I'm a poor candidate for an opponent. You might try someone with more experience. That wasn't quite what I was getting at in my answer. Without malice from I to you: let the votes speak. I do like Jung and won't change my answer.

@Taal I'm interested in your perspective. Would you care to share an answer of your own? I'm not convinced.
