Psychological Ipsum

Objective

To generate filler text inspired by the vocabulary of research, theory, and applications of academic psychology and related sciences.

Method

By combining a simple Sinatra application with a lexicon culled from personal and professional experience, yet another ipsum generator was created. The current ipsumification generation process (IGP) can be modulated with three parameters—citations, paragraph length, and paragraph quantity—controlling the inclusion of APA style citations, the number of sentences in each paragraph, and the total number of paragraphs, respectively.

Results

Initial research suggests this project yields very little in terms of substantive outcomes. It did, however, provide the author with a gentle chortle.

Conclusion

There may be theoretical implications; future research is needed.
