What do you think about psychology?

I, personally, love it. It's so fascinating, which is why I'm majoring in it in college. Whether I'll go to med school and become a Psychiatrist doctor with an MD, or just go for regular college for just as long and become a Psychologist doctor with a PH.D, I'm not sure....but I'm definitely loving it.

So....opinions?

Neuropsychology is the way to go if you are getting a masters or phD in psychology, just remember that the biological areas are important too. Behavioral Neuroscience is also another path you can take.

I'm an idiot/slow person, and it takes me time to understand psychological thrillers, mysteries, and such; but still have a huge liking to them.
Probably due to all psychologists I went to as a kid-teen failing to "comprehend" me (their own words), and my desire to understand myself better, I have considered studying about it often.

Psychology is extremely interesting when you start to get into more specialized forms of it. I took developmental psych last semester and was surprised at how much I enjoyed the content. I would have probably taken it as another minor if I had enough room in my schedule.

Recently I have found myself observing human behaviors and human interactions and have been trying to analyze (to a small extent) what really causes people to have differing personalities, form their cliques, etc. Even within my friend group I find myself contemplating over why someone acts the way they do, or what are the true reasons for their behavoirs.

So I think psychology is really interesting (from a high school junior's naive perspective). Maybe when I go to college I'll study it, but who knows what I'll do

Just wait until you get to psychology in college and you learn how to use it to alter people's behaviors in interesting ways.

My interests started in psychiatry and psychology. Now, I lean toward BCMB, Evolutionary Biology, Immunology, Virology, and Epidemiology. In essence, I find myself at odds with anti vaxxers and anti "Big Pharma" people a lot.

It fascinates me to the core, man. So does sociology, which is pretty much the same thing; It just focuses more on shaping cultures. I'm still thinking about going to school for it, m'self, but it sounds so stressful. It's something I seem to be passionate for, so maybe it just might be worth it.

Altering people's behaviors? That sounds very interesting. I am already excited. Just have to wait 2 years

I'm interested in psychology insofar as it affects me.

Beyond that, I'd rather study other sciences.

Classical and operant conditioning. It's pretty neat.

The idea of it is nice. Just don't let me near those big textbooks. I'll faint.

Taken intro classes, hated it.

Sociology is more fun imo, I prefer sociology. As for neuroscience, that seems interesting if it'll help us get to the nervegear, if not, screw that too.

I was a psych major, got my associates, thought about finishing at least bachelors, but now I'm back in a tech job, so I should go back tech...
The silly things we do with our lives!

It sounds like your are having a good experience...

One of my cousins has a Bachelors in Psychology.... In light of my own personal dealings with her; I wonder who she paid to take the test to get the degree.... She also has a Justice degree and is a cop.... I would think she'd be a more rounded person... I digress...

When I took the class in high school I found the subject to be fascinating, unfortunately the teacher I had for it was a football coach and it was not his major. He would give us the assignment, "read the next chapter." The next day he would read it back to us, verbatim.... There was no discussion about the lesson at all. A good example of how not to be a teacher.

I sure as hell hope your experience continues to be a good one.
