Psychology is an academic discipline and social science that strives to understand unconscious and conscious behavior and mind of individuals and groups.
Psychologists explore different types of behavioral and mental processes, including perception, attention, cognition, emotion, intelligence and motivation. We also must not forget the examination of how personality and interpersonal relationships develop, as they are an important part of psychology.
On the practical individual level, psychology is all about making people’s life experience happier, more productive and fulfilling. It somehow includes more scientific, systematic and long‑term approaches of personal development to tackle bigger emotional challenges like depression, anxiety, isolation and procrastination.
