What is Psychology?
It is a comparatively new science which seeks to understand the behavior and experience of human beings.

Of what use is Psychology?
Beyond the excitement which accompanies increased understanding of man’s behavior is the highly practical nature of psychological knowledge. While in no sense a “how-to” course in influencing people, this knowledge should enable you to better understand the “whys” and “wherefores” of human behavior - to better understand yourself and others.
