In general, people used to have the following ideas of Psychology:
l Psychology is a subject of helping others with psychological problems or,
l People who study Psychology can comprehend others’ mind easily.
Nonetheless, Psychology is a scientific study of human behaviours and mental processes, i.e. it is a subject to understand ourselves and others in terms of cognitive, emotional and behavioral aspects of our daily life systematically. Of course, this is a challenge as people are complex and multifaceted, with a wide range of factors and experiences which shape our thoughts, feelings and behaviours.
If you have a keen interest in exploring and learning more about human behaviours from a scientific perspective then Psychology is a subject that will both enlighten and challenge you. Through the learning process of Psychology, it provides us a framework with which to make sense of ones’ personal experience, growth and development.
