I've read from other posts that you have taken some psychology courses.
I was wondering how much of this knowledge of psychology (especially Social
Psychology) have you used in writing Babylon 5.


The oldest form of noncontingent feedback:  Graduate School

There's a little of lots of things in the writing, it's hard to pin down
any one of them; I don't sit down and say, "Okay, now to use some
psychology on this."  A writer is like a sponge; you pick up lots of
colors and strangenesses, then when you come to write something, you
squeeze, and everything comes out together.  I write what the dark and
scary parts of my brain seem interested in writing about.
