Welcome to The Psychology of...


Psychology is a broad field of science that attempts to understand the brain, mind and behavior of human beings. Psychology interfaces with every facet of human life and through the use of the scientific method, psychologists from all of the perspectives and disciplines attempt to better understand some of society's most challenging problems and interesting questions. However, in dealing with human beings, psychology is an inherently messy field. Messy is perhaps the nice way to describe the science of psychology as many see the issues of individual differences and subjective aspects of cognition as mortal weaknesses to the pursuit of scientific research. Since everyone is an expert in being human, psychology, more than any other science, deals with a fair number of myths about concepts in its domain. This website explores some of the most pervasive myths in psychology in order to update and correct our understanding of the field of psychology.
