Introduction to Psychology
Psychology is the study of mental processing’s and behaviours whether human or
animal.
Psychologists base conclusions on concrete evidence
Psychology is based on research.
Soldiers with a higher intelligence developed more stress disorders then soldiers
who we less intelligent. They have a greater awareness of dangers and negative
aspects causing them to stress. (What you don’t know can’t hurt you). Not true.
People with lower intelligence had developed more stress disorders rather than
people who had a higher intelligence.
It is so easy to come up with after the fact explanations, but it does not make it
true which is why psychologists research rather than automatically having a
conclusion on a subject through common sense.
Scientific Method Based on scientific research.
True Hypothesis
1. Can confirm theory
2. Provide New Facts
Leading to new theories
