Interesting Facts about the career

  • Your common sense is often very wrong- That's the thing about common sense—just because something seems like it should be true doesn't necessarily mean that it is. Researchers are able to take some of these questions and presumptions about human behavior and test them scientifically, assessing the truth or falsehood in some of our commonly held beliefs about ourselves. By using scientific methods, experimenters can investigate human issues objectively and fairly.


  • Role of Psychologists- Although psychologists are trained in the diagnosis of mental health issues, it is not always helpful or relevant for a psychologist to provide a diagnosis, and sometimes clients don’t meet the criteria for a diagnosis anyway.


  • Talking to a psychologist is not the same as talking to a family member- A psychologist can provide a perspective that is unique and unbiased, in part because they are not involved in your personal life and therefore have no vested interested, but also because psychologists undergo extensive training to learn to listen in a way that is active, empathic, non-judgemental and objective. This particular way of listening often allows people to open up and explore beliefs, memories, experiences, ideas, fears and feelings that they might feel reluctant to speak about with friends or family.
