    Any of the social sciensies should`nt be critisised untill you get to know the fundamental stratigies involved with the subject.Psycoligy is about helping people and resolving complex issues..
    ok....a bit random....no one said anything contradictory...

    i'm relieved to hear that

    hm... what do i like most about psychology... you read my personal statement, didn't you? i am most fascinated by neuropsychology, because of the experiments and because i love biology - especially neurobiology.
    i also like the fact that you have many areas to work in after your graduation, cause i'm not really sure yet if i want to work rather as a clinical psychologist or more scientifically.. or in business.
    ah, but i really love most of psychology - except for statistics perhaps, but i don't mind much doing some maths.
    can't wait to beginn my studies!

    i did?! :eek: i don't remember we go through so many so i don't remember sorry. i think i loved the bits about diseases like schizophrenia and stuff, that was the really exciting bit when i studied it at Alevels. don't get me wrong,the rest are fine but that was the good stuff! hehe. like you said,the good thing about psychology is that you can get a job in almost all industries which is good.i don't know what i want to do after uni but hopefully i'll know soon enough lol

    i can imagine schizophrenia to be exciting! as well is tourettes syndrome, autism, epilepsy and so on... (except for the people who suffer from it i guess *cough*)
    hm, i guess on the other hand it's quite hard to get a job because so many people study psychology, eh?
    i'm planning to do a masters degree after the bachelor, but who knows what will be in 3 years...

    i studied autism and schizophrenia and they were good. i haven't done tourettes or epiliepsy. although we had a bit of a talk about it today in one of my lectures (but it was a psychoanalysis one) and it was good. i dont' like how notts doesn't concentrate much on freud because i find him really interesting.

    yep, i like freud too. though he sometimes makes me laugh
    in germany they don't consider him at all in the psychology courses, they do a lot more business psychology

    can't quite understand why, a lot of his theories are proven by neurologists now.

    well, i must admit when i first read his theories about psychosexual development i was quite put off as well at first... "clitoris inferiority" and "penis envy" :wtf?: pleeease!
    but if you read some more he indeed makes sense, especially what he wrote about incest prevention of primitive people... really entertaining as well

    Hmm .. this thread looks a little like it's turned into a no-mans-land. Someone please prove me wrong!
    I'm taking Psychology at A-level. And probably a Sports Psychology course at Uni.. Anybody have any useful info they could tell me?
    I'm completely new to the subject, so open to anything
    Thanks ___x.

    I don't know much about sports psychology...but you could be meeting famous people whichever sport you decide to specialise in do you like your course so far?

    i think it's dead because it's exam time...people are trying to cram at the last minute...how we're expectred to study a whole year's worth of psych work and know it and be ready for a 2.5 hour exam pisses me off! and the fact that studying is the last thing on the brain doesn't help ....i'm thinking of changing course...
