Why should we study Psychology?
Psychology helps us understand ourselves better
Studying Psychology will make us ask ourselves many questions. Questions that don’t always have an answer. But ones that will help us to constantly search and discover. It will be an adventure where we get to know ourselves and other people a little more each day, and where we can leave behind certain attitudes and ideas that used to be so important for us.
You will develop critical thinking
Much of the material, the theories, approaches and areas that make up Psychology studies help us to develop critical thinking. Whether we like it or not, it is an essential requirement if we want to be good professionals, and if we really want to be useful to people without losing our integrity and honor. Only then will we differentiate the wood from the trees, the lucidity of deceit, the reality of manipulation.
Greater understanding of human relationships
Psychologists also suffer from depression and anxiety. They are not immune to failures in their emotional relationships and even have their small phobias and limitations. However, having all this knowledge makes them much more aware of what is happening to them, and around them. It makes them understand relational dynamics much better. It helps them know when to ask for help regarding how to best help themselves or other people.
