Definitions

Urban Dictionary:

Psych

To retract your previous statement, in an attempt to fool the person you’re talking/chatting to.

self

The field of psychology attempts to define it with circular definitions. The truth is, we don’t really know how to define self… not objectively at least.

In a few words, self is consciousness. Consciousness escapes objective description (poor example: your experience of the colour red, is it the same as mine?). If a definition requires an objective description, then self is un-definable.

sync

to be in a same state of mind or thinking

sic

(sic) (Latin for “thus”) is a bracketed expression used to indicate that an unusual spelling, phrase, or any other preceding quoted material is intended to be read or printed exactly as shown (rather than being an error) and should not be corrected. When found in a French document, (sic) stands for “Sans Intention Comique” (without comic intention) meaning that even if the preceding text could be understood as funny, it was not meant to be. It is used by writers quoting someone to alert the reader to the fact that an error or other weirdness in the quoted material is in the original, and not an error of transcription. “Sic” is almost always enclosed in parentheses.
