Me, too. Toe the party line, there. But on other threads I've been spreading some pollyanna about keeping an open mind with respect to a number of different issues, so I thought it was time to practice what I preach.

I went to the site. First of all, the guy's horrible at web design. 2nd generation, use of the underline tag, poor page flow (in the route I followed, I actually went to the end of a logical thread and had to step backwards through it!). So, he definitely is spending time on something other than learning web design. Typical of anyone with something to sell, he does have testimonials. Not always so typical of people with something to sell is that he has credentials.

I'm no psychopharmer, but the structure of his particular approach it methodologically intriguing. Whereas a (positivist-empiricist) scientific approach would have you change one variable at a time, allowing a long enough trial of that change to gather what is deemed as appropriate information, Dr. Jensen takes more of a systems view. To me, it looks like a variation on cluster analysis or multidimensional scaling (statistical geekSpeak for ways of examining how lots of factors clump into working groups that produce coherent and mostly independent (from other groups) effects. The theoretical basis behind it is quite interesting.

So, for those more knowledgeable in matters psychotropic than me, you might want to hop in and take a look before passing judgment.
