psychologists: you are what you eat
philosopher: but what is that you eat? what is food? what is life?

as for preference, maybe philosophy because it's fun? idk.

Both are interesting fields. But if 'tis a matter of choosin' only one, I'll take Philosophy, mainly because it gleans towards an artistic way of thinking and belief, compared to the other, that deals with "dissection" of behaviour and thinking patterns, or the scientific. The latter feels a bit more by-the-book.





Edit: Thanks kindly. V V V

Not a big fan of either, but if I had to choose it would be Philosophy. I do enjoy reading up on the teachings of a bunch of dead o'l Greeks like Plato, Socrates, Aristotle, and my personal favorite, Diogenes.

They are both fascinating, but I would have to say Philosophy.

I have a thing for looking up the quotes and views of ancient philosophers like Plato and Socrates. It's really very interesting!

Frankly, I find both rather interesting, on first consideration.

If I had to choose one, though, it would definitely be philosophy. Although psychology is an interesting subject, I have found philosophy interesting in recent years. Rightly so, I think, because it is such a vast and thoughtful subject. That isn't to say that psychology isn't, but that philosophy is more so.

I think a lot. Especially at night. Psychology and philosophy are linked, in many a way. What is consciousness, for example? Well, besides some obscure or general scientific definitions, we don't really know. It's that thing that you experience all the time. That 'experience of sensations' or... something like that. I'll tell you one thing it is though - a major connection between philosophy and science, or philosophy and psychology, to be more precise.

Philosophy keeps me thinking, always wondering. You could say the mind is more vast than the universe, but that mind is contained in this universe. They are both mysterious beasts, but philosophy can talk about psychology and still be philosophy, while psychology is more limited.

I use philosophy to look inward, whilst also using it as a telescope to view outward. It is flexible. "Who am I? Why do I exist?" "Has the universe always existed? Does logic exist outside the brain? Why is the universe the way it is?" Etc., etc.

TL;DR: Philosophy and psychology are both quite interesting. Generally, though, philosophy allows a broader spectacle, encompassing parts of psychology, even.

Same here. I tend to like philosophy more.
