  • His words are definitely helpful!!

  • This was so inspiring and motivating, I was being to lose sight of why I was studying this course (I am half way though my degree). I'll go back to studying right away now. 

  • Western psychology is the most racist and biased practice of modern times. 

  • I am only 14 years old. I am planning for my future.

    I really want to study psychology. But can a psychologist's salary can support a family? I can't decide whether I will study psychology or not.

    I would like you to know that, not being boastful, I am good in math. Average in science and english.

    Please, help me decide.


  • aboot

  • Great Information

  • yes, and one thing does the mind too. you take everything for granted when you see someone who has the title "professor". thats poor

  • The great thing about psychology is that, it's everywhere, in our every day lives but most of the time, we do not take time to even observe what's happening within us, around us and that's what interested me in studying psychology.

  • One of the best teachers I ever had. LOVED Super Psych. Thanks Professor Atkinson!!

  • Further to his point about usefulness of taking Psychology is that it's also very helpful in the business world — for marketing, sales, etc…
