Facts About Psychology Students

Assalamualaikum

Many people ask questions such as,
"Can you read my mind?""What subjects you are actually studying?""You are studying psychology, right? Then I am not supposed to look into your eyes." 
So I decided to tell you Facts About Psychology Students you may don't know about us.

1. Psychology is not a “common sense”
This is one of the most common myths about psychology. Psychology relies on scientific methods to investigate questions and arrive at conclusions. People cannot just make the statement that “They are doing that because of that..” That's the thing about common sense – just because something seems like it should be true does not necessarily mean that it is. In psychology, we learn about psychology research methods to discover relationships between different variables. 

2. APA Format Annoying Things To Do When Citing References
I admit it that this is the most annoying things to do when we are doing assignments or report. It makes us confused where to put the title, author or year of the journal published. And my lectures always rejected our assignment because of doing APA format mistakes.

3. Start To Analyse People Around You
It does not apply to psychology students only. Most of us like to analyze or observe people around us. The way people dressing, how human or animal communicate with each other, and much more. So, this is the things that we learn as psychology students. We learn to describe human thought and behavior, explain why this behavior occurs, predict how, why and when this behavior will occur again in the future and how we modify and improve behaviors to better the lives of individuals and society as a whole.

4. Psychology Is All Around You
Psychology is not just an academic subject that exists only in classrooms, research labs, and mental health offices. The principles of psychology can be seen all around you in everyday situations. For example, last semester we learned about Industrial and Organization Psychology where the television commercials and print ads you see every day rely on psychology to develop marketing messages that influence and persuade people to purchase the advertised products. 

Sometimes people look down at you, because of the courses you are taking and also your career. Sometimes we might feel discourage and demotivated, because of management issues and facilities problem. No matter what, I always tell myself, keep on fighting and pursue your dream! 

Ohh almost forgot, psychology does not read human mind at all hehe~

  1. I always thought studying psychology is cool since you're dealing with people, with emotion, which I'm bad at.

    Nice info btw, I always thought it was based on common sense, like you develop sixth sense or something, never occurs to me you actually rely on scientific method and investigate answers. keep up the great work :)
