You see how useless it is to try and diagnose when youre not qualified?

There's a difference between diagnosing a specific (or even generalised) mental illness based on some internet posts and doing it based on 100s of hours of one on one in the flesh dialogue. This is some kind of variation of an appeal to authority which you keep banging on about fal. If somebody studied and digested all the material which is present in a training course which leads to an official qualification, and much more material beyond that, but outside an official training course, why would they be ineffective at practising the skills learnt compared to somebody who acquired similar skills within official channels?


You haven't done that. But one reason would be that you need to have been observed in practice and to have passed stringent tests to ensure competence. Another would be that you need to have achieved a specific number of practice hours using specific skills. Another is that you only assume you have covered everything you need to be the same as someone who is qualified, but you don't seem to be aware of a number of aspects of the job. Another is that you haven't been assessed for understanding of the material you have apparently digested. In short, you claim this and that, but have no way to show it. I myself am a surgeon. I've read loads about it and I've spent hundreds of hours chopping up meat and playing Operation in person. But for some reason, no one wants to accept that I have this skill. But my good friend definitely has a hiatus hernia. I just need to persuade her to have the surgery.
