comment Does cognitive & behavioral schools have any analysis for “sympathy” & “compassion”?
As stated, this question is far too broad, and I don't understand the choice to tags; what does behaviourism have to do with this? I would advise reading through the relevant Wikipedia pages to get yourself started, maybe this blog post will help point you in some useful directions.

comment What is the difference between behavioral science and cognitive science?
I am not a huge fan of declaring disciplines that don't self identify as sub-disciplines of each other as dependent based on a domain of overlap; since what matters is not just what is studied but how it is studied (else, why not just say everything is physics? As some physicists might). But even if we did subscribe to this reductionist program of field classification, I would disagree with your answer as written. You said behavioral science is "animal or human behavior" while cognitive science studies cognition not only in animals and humans, but extends to questions in AI.

comment Is 'intuition' related to 'extrasensory perception'?
Since the OP seems to have some concerns/confusions about intuition as a (potentially) non-deteministic process, I would suggest adding a bit to this answer on how the dual-process view of heuristic is not incompatible with determinism; you are simply not consciously aware of the machinery that arrives at the intuition, but that unconscious machinery can still be deterministic. I could write this as a separate answer myself, but I feel like that would be spending too many words on a passing comment by the OP.

comment Which schools of psychotherapy are most credible to a hard scientist?
Although I might be more open to people offering their professional subjective opinion than @ChristianHummeluhr is, this answer does bother me. It seems like just a quote (and not even a self-contained one, since the references are just numbers) from wikipedia. A lot of the quote also seems irrelevant to the question. I feel like this would have been more appropriate as a link in the comments than as an answer.

Just don't let the Skeptic know CBT's roots in Stoic philosophy; it might flare up an old Hellenistic debate ;).

@Anon1423563 I like this question, but I thought it would be more clear if your "edit" was presented before the hypothetical profile and have edited it accordingly. Feel free to revert my edits if you feel they miss the spirit of your question.

Restructured the format to make it clear that the (former) opening lines were the profile of a potential patient.

comment Is it easy in languages other than English to read a paragraph where all but the first and last letters of every word have been rearranged?
I don't think your comparison in German is a fair one. You used a word that combines several roots, and thus has in it a grammatical structure that the inside of an English words lacks. What happens if you scrambled while respecting that structure? i.e. keep the first and last letter of each root and the connectives as-is and randomize the letters inside each root. Will the word then be readable by a skilled German reader?
