Will you ever tell us what psychology is?
  • Well, what is the common element?
  • Behaviour
  • Thinking or cognition
  • So, Psychology is the SCIENTIFIC study of
    behaviour and cognition
  • There is also the profession of psychology, but
    to be effective it still must use a scientific
    approach

Why?
  • Why study behaviour and cognition that is
  • 1) It is a pretty pervasive part of being human
  • 2) Gives us answers to big questions about our
    origins
  • Animal behaviour can help out here
  • 3) Help people
  • There are LOTS of people with problems

7
There is one more reason
  • 4) Because it is there!
  • I do my research to find out how the universe (an
    itty bitty part) works
  • I could care less if it is applied to helping
    people
  • Pure science vs. application or technology
  • This does not mean I think applications are
    unimportant

8
Psychology is cool
  • The study of behaviour and cognition is important
    to other fields too
