Choosing to study Psychology is the first step on an exciting journey.
Do you ever find yourself asking big questions like:
What is normal?
Why do we forget?
Are humans more influenced by their genes or their environment?
Is our destiny determined? Or do we have some control over it?
Why do some people obey authority?…And others disobey?
Should we use medication to treat mental illness….Or something else?
Psychologists conduct research to answer these sorts of questions. Just like Biology, Physics & Chemistry, Psychologists often use the scientific method.
But, Psychologists have many different approaches to explaining human behaviour. So, we can take one behaviour, but disagree about its cause.
