I did a thesis on Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) using Cognitive Psychology and Activity Theory as a background. Cognitive Science fascinates me but I have little experience with it. At the moment I'm a PhD student at the IT University of Copenhagen, at the PIT lab studying HCI, but I mainly have a software development background.

In 2007 I got my bachelor degree in applied informatics in Belgium. Immediately after, I started working at the company where I did my internship, AIM Productions. I liked the work and colleagues at the company too much to give up entirely for further studies, so I decided to combine the two. In 2009 I started studying for my master in Game and Media Technology at the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands and I graduated in 2012.

comment What is a source of case studies of personality disorders?
@JeromyAnglim I agree the question can be shaped into a good one, but it is lacking severely in initial research. I'm all for reopening if the OP is prepared to expand on it a bit. Perhaps expand on the background, and outline the already found sources and why they weren't suitable/complete enough.

Welcome to Cognitive Sciences liz! The scope of your question is overly broad. I suggest you do a bit of research first to find anything which interests you. If more focused questions arise from that you are more than welcome to ask them here. You could also join chat for a general discussion which could give you some ideas.
