|WikiProject Psychology||(Rated C-class, High-importance)|
I feel the section of pathologies and contexts would benefit from review by an expert in psychology. Some questions that I'd like to see addressed are:
- Is an article about the general term, exaggeration, the right place to be discussing psychological pathologies?
- If so,
- Is this a good name for the section?
- Have we covered both the normal and abnormal psychological aspects of exaggeration well enough?
- Does the order of the list correspond to a natural prioritization from the field of psychology?
- To answer a few of your questions:
- a huge number of Wiki psychology articles need major work, maybe about 30% have zero citations and maybe about 20% are short in citations. There is also a big shortage of psychology experts available to improve them
- like hundreds of other Wiki psychology articles this one could do with being reviewed by an expert but there could be a long wait.
- I originally was going to do an "exaggeration (psychology)" article until i realised that the existing "exaggeration" redirect to "hyperbole" was inadequate so i decided on a general "exaggeration" article.
- the pathologies and contexts list is roughly listed in a logical sequence but there are obviously other ways of doing it.
- it is amazing that it has taken so long for an article on exaggeration to be done.

Image of statues in totalitarian states
I removed an image of Korean statues that had a caption about their use in totalitarian states without any sources and without clearly linking it to exaggeration. It appeared to be pushing a POV rather than illustrating a point in the text. Jojalozzo 21:11, 1 December 2012 (UTC)
