My Top Ten YouTube Videos

OK, my top ten YouTube videos are going to get pretty low ratings anyplace else. But where else are you going to see the list but on my blog? In a world where popular videos are viral at a million plus views, I’m way in the back yard.

I wasn’t very picky, of course, because these are the videos I made. I didn’t include any others, especially the ones that were professionally produced. I kept the bar pretty low because I had to. Any video with over 900 views made it to the list, which goes from lowest to highest number of views.

By the way, the only way I could come up with a Top 10 list was to make the bar 900.

10. “Dr. Jim Amos’ Dirty Dozen on Suicide Risk Assessment” published 2012: 940 views

9. “Dr. Jim Amos’ Dirty Dozen on Alcohol Withdrawal Treatment” published 2012: 1,063 views

8. “Dr. Jim Amos’ Dirty Dozen on Catatonia” published 2012: 1,668 views

7. “Mall of America Video” published in 2016: 1,728 views

6. “Dr. Jim Amos’ Dirty Dozen on Interpersonal Psychotherapy” published 2012: 1,840 views

5. “Dr. Jim Amos’ Dirty Dozen on Catatonia, NMS, Serotonin Syndrome” published 2013: 1,960 views

4. “Dirty Dozen on Dr. Allen Frances’ Dozen General Tips on Psychiatric Diagnosis” published 2013: 2,492 views

3. “Pseudobulbar Affect Top Ten” published 2015: 2,613 views

2. “Dr. James Amos’ Dirty Dozen on Somatoform Disorders” published 2012: 8,191 views

1. “Dirty Dozen on Factitious Disorder and Malingering” published 2012: 12,465 views

Now why would a video about abnormal illness behaviors like Factitious Disorder and Malingering be number one?

And why would “Mall of America Video” be my most popular non-work-related video? My wife and I did have a lot of fun there.

I like to think people enjoy “Pseudobulbar Affect Top Ten” because of my superb pseudo-rap acting style—and my hat.

Like my hat?
