Question for Psychologists (ones who either have a masters and above)
I recently became a psychology major(just switched from computer engineering last week) and I had a few questions. Some questions are based on my class i am taking and some are on the broader scope of psychology it's self. The class I am in is normal psychology.
- Which theory of personality do you identify most with and/or do you think is most accurate. If possible would you explain why?
- On psychology as a whole, do you think it is a science? or is it more like a philosphy? more like a social science? a hard science? I'm curious. I am reading right now about William James and the view he has of psychology i don't know if i agree with.
- What type psychologist do you plan on becoming? (ie behavioral, developmental ... etc)
- Why do you think so many people look down at psychologists in general and/or pyschology as a study?
