How is psychology full of **** exactly?

And neuroscience is more towards how the brain work's at a science level. Psychology how it reacts to situations.

While Psychology encompasses a lot of neuroscience, especially cognitive neuroscience, it also addresses more applied theories relating to development, social behaviour, cognition, clinical theories, forensic theories etc. while borrowing from biology, evolutionary theory and other areas. They both share a basis of empirical persuits. For example, I specialise almost entirely in neuroscience in my third year. It's quite a versatile subject.

Neuroscience is entirely biological, studying the nervous system with much less application into cognition and social behaviours.

Rather vague, there. Care to elaborate?

Seeing as you typically get people whom have never studied Psychology posting bull **** about the subject, I have attached is one of my lectures addressing the rather interesting subject of action processing, agency and locus of control so you can get a feel of one part of the subject.

As you can see, Psychology incorporates a lot of neuroscience and focuses heavily on empirical persuits. The non scientific paradigms have largely been abandoned in modern teaching.

See attached.
