My best thoughts about what we learned in the first week of classes are endless because this is my first exposure to everything we learned. The class taught me a different understanding of human nature—a new way to study and analyze emotions and behavior. It’s fascinating to be able to understand how and why we are the way we are in the present. For example, how the world war has affected so many people, or natural diseases involuntarily given to a person such as mental illness and its cure changed the course of psychology.
