Question by civis totius mundi: When a college lecturer in psychology mixes her own idiotic beliefs in with the subject matter, how to deal?
Let’s assume she mixes her idiotic beliefs about politics, hypnosis, and economics in with the subject matter (psychology) and teaches them all as if they were holy writ.
Edit, Jade, at the time this experience happened, I had two degrees and she had one.

Does that matter?

Answer by Vicky Parker
If you want an A on that report card you will regurgitate her nonsense on demand back to her. There is no necessity to adopt her views outside of that arena. Look on the bright side; it is teaching you critical thinking and politics.

    It depends on the teacher. I’ve heard stories about students yelling at crazy professors like the one you described, and getting an A in the class because they stood up to their professor. But not every teacher is the same, you might want to find out what she is looking for on the test.

    Why don’t you just tell her that her beliefs are idiotic? Simple as that. Assert yourself or be a passive wimp.

    Another undergrad student who professes they know more than the prof. You clearly don’t have the PhD, so shut your hole and actually listen to your prof for once. She knows more than you, which is why SHE is teaching the course.
