Psychology

Have you ever wondered what makes a person tick? As in, the things that flow through their clockwork mind that cause them to arrive at a mental destination, whether it’s through rational logic, cognitive bias or abnormal thinking. The human mind is a complicated entity with all its twists and turns through consciousness and subconsciousness. If you’re interested in unraveling the mental processes that affect individual and social behavior, then you may want to major in Psychology.
