Psychology

It's my minor xD. English is my major. Yey for learning

I like them both pretty equally but for the sake of choosing i'll say psychology because it's more scientific.

Philosophy

Most certainly due to my poetic side.

They're both two subjects that interest me greatly, probably more than any other subject. If I had to choose between the two though, I'd prefer philosophy. I'll always be grateful that my high school had a grade 10 philosophy course, though I've always preferred more open discussions.

They're not truly separable. There's a philosophical stance underlying the science of pscyhology which states that behaviour and cognition are quantifiable and testable in such a way as to make it possible to predict the impact of a given stimulus or set of conditions upon behaviour to within a reasonable degree of error. It is, in other words, an empirical science rooted in the assumption that progressively accurate measurements and tests will be capable of better describing reality. Now, to some extent psychological phenomena are as yet limited to being qualitative descriptions of observed behaviours in a given set of circumstances or in response to a given stimulus, but that's an early stage of discovery which is expected to move toward more quantitative results as time goes on.

Psychology cause it interest me more

Philosophy.
I don't care so much if my reasons make sense to someone else, so long as they make sense to me.

Philosophy.

I think sharing a philosophical debate with someone would be a very civil way to spiritually understand what and why your values are the way they are. Since values and morals aren't black-and-white binaries that are on and off switches.

So they're one in the same?

It's more like there's a philosophical underpinning for psychology. There is a series of assumptions psychology makes about the world from the outset in order to determine both what questions to ask about behaviour and how to go about finding answers for those questions.

That doesn't really speak to the matter of preference, though. I was off point there. One can prefer to study and discuss psychology without concerning themselves very deeply with its philosophical backbone, and one can discuss parts of philosophy without attending to psychology. I have no preference.

Considering that, before I ended up leaving school for something unrelated, I studied psychology as my major for three years, I would have to say that I probably enjoy psychology more.
