Favorite course in college was Philosophy of The Twilight Zone

That being said I love understanding how and why things work so I'd probably choose Psychology for that reason alone

I've already learned a lot about both. I want to psychology to the next level though. It will help me achieve certain goals.

Neither, much preferred chemistry and physics.

I really think both are quite interesting, but between the two I choose psychology. I've always been heavily intrigued by how brains function and how various factors can change so much about a person's personality and perception of things.

Psychology cirricula worldwide is pretty useless. Like most liberal arts degrees, they are self-serving and for most people - realistically - gives them a false sense of entitlement.

I don't often target people specifically - yet I want to pass along some advice that helped me along my journey:

If you wish to garner trust with someone or a group of people, I would suggest you weed out the phrases, "to be honest", "truthfully", "not going to/gunna lie", etc..

By using those phrases, you are signalling to other people that you are not being truthful all the time. While realistically we all shade our version of the truth, and practically speaking we all collectively use white lies, or outright lies to push forward our agenda... it's one of those things that is just a blanket negative to put out there.

Hope it helps It sure helped me.

Psychology in terms of load, but philosophy is something I can and is doing outside the classroom. Past a point, I don't need a teacher as much as an open mindset.

I think philosophy is for everyone. Psychology is a bit more chancy then people realize, and not as applicable in day to day life interaction as you would expect, sans topics like developmental psychology and such. I think if there any use for psychology for the average person like you or me, it is becoming a better parent or guardian, if anything.

Though really, the most applications I ever had were basically how to help others cope, but I am not means a substitute for professional help.

To philosophize truthfully is to be able to have a discussion. In terms of that, to be able to discuss is a rare ability bordering social extinction. To me, that is more valuable than most of what psychology teaches.

I have to keep current on mental disorders in my current job so I guess psychology, in a related manner knowing how most people think and being able to read lies quite well contribute to the fact that I prefer to be alone.

Philosophy because it’s a broader subject area that deals with questions I’m more interested in.
