Psychology

The word psychology is derived from two Greek words: psyche which means “the mind or soul” and logos which means “the study of”. Therefore as a word psychology means “the study of mind or soul”. However psychology is not restricted to the mind alone a more useful definition and one that reflects what psychologists actually do is “psychology is the scientific study of human behaviour and mental processes”. This definition reflects that psychology is concerned with both the mind (mental process) and behavioural process and humans can reflect and report on what they think and how they feel. Another interesting factor is how both the behaviour and mind are affected by the person’s physical and mental state and external environment.
