Psychology is the study of the human mind – not the brain. Psychologists study cognition (thought), emotion, feeling, and the motivations that make us do what we do. It is a field that can be helpful in many ways, even if you don’t intend to be a clinical psychologist. Understanding human motivation and emotion can be deeply important in sales, politics, law, and many other fields. Of course, it can also be helpful if you want to work as a therapist, or as an organizational psychologist who uses psychology to improve organizational performance and efficiency.
