Excerpt from psychological assessment of new SC Chief Justice Lourdes Sereno

New Supreme Court Chief Justice Lourdes Sereno reportedly rated a four in a scale from 1 to 5 (5 being the lowest) in a psychology test administered by the Judicial Bar Council (JBC). The following is an alleged excerpt from the report.
“dramatic and emotional, she appears energetic and all smiles and agreeable, but with religious preoccupation in almost all significant aspects of her life. She projects a happy mood but has depressive markers too. There is a strong tendency to make decisions based on current mood thus, outcome is highly subjective and self-righteous.”

  1. If that be the case, Sereno shouldn't have been included in the shortlist of the JBC. Being highly subjective is a no, no - not in the Supreme Court, where you have to decide cases based on merits and evidences presented and not on the mood of the hour.

  2. I wanna consider this page as one of the best blog. I think Southern California Neuropsychology Group is extremely nice. SoCal NPG web site include a lot of nice info.
