    It Gives Me Hope.

    Pretty much since I was 21 I have had a very large interest in psychology. For several years of messing up my life, destroying my work history... basically not doing anything productive, I have only skimmed past it. Now that I am 24 I find myself with the same mental problems...

    I need an idea for a assignment I'm doing in

    school. It's an observational experiment. So pretty well I have to come up with a theory and prove it or prove its wrong. For example "are women or men better at scanning there parking pass when being watched? A student would stand by the parking lot everyday and watch as people...

    Ok, I am finally ready to swallow my pride

    and ask for help. Since this is EP, I should probably start with asking everyone to please understand that the advice I am seeking is only from the psychological viewpoint. So a few years ago in college, my psychology professor brought up fetishes in one of her lectures on...

    I'm currently in 9th grade.

    I take high school seriously because I've seen people on my Facebook who didn't really succeed in high school, and wish they had done better. I want to have a bright future when I get older & I want to be the best that I can. I'm not an over achiever but I just try to aim for...

    human behavior is so fascinating to me.

    I love learning about new theories and being able to see those theories in action when I observe people. Thank you for sharing your stories!

    Psychology has always interested me.

    It all started when I realized I had ADD. I wonder why does my brain not like me concentrate on things, not let me sit still or fidget, or speak before I think. I, also, always wondered why I am so overly laid back on things, timid, and care more about other than my own self...

    I love psychology in general,

    but my favorite to learn about is abnormal psychology. If anyone else here loves psychology and would like to discuss it sometimes, please add me, or message me! I am not extremely knowledgeable, as I am still learning through my education. :)

    EP Has Done More For Me Than Therapy

    since I was a senior in high school. My college dual majors were psychology and sociology. I went back to school a few years later and obtained my masters degree in behavioral sciences. I was quite successful as a college professor too.

    Human psychology is something

    that really interests me. How we react to things, like art, music, and how we are socially. I like to get inside peoples' head so I can understand them and how diverse each human is because it is truly beautiful.

    The brain is an amazing organ

    and I love learning about the power of the mind. Whenever I see or hear about a psychological phenomenon I have to know how it works and why it does that. Is it weird for a 14 year old to be delving this deep into things?

    I've had a passion for psychology since I was 11. I stumbled across a psychology website one day and my mind was just blown at how fascinating it is. The human mind is so unlike the body, that it can't be directly observed. It's so mysterious. It's scary sometimes, but it's...
