Psychology

Psychology is the science of behavior and mind, including conscious and unconscious phenomena, as well as feeling and thought. It is an academic discipline of immense scope and diverse interests that, when taken together, seek an understanding of the emergent properties of brains, and all the variety of epiphenomena they manifest. As a social science it aims to understand individuals and groups by establishing general principles and researching specific cases.

Schadenfreude

Schadenfreude: deriving pleasure from the misfortune of others. It's actually a lot more common than one would think. Plenty of students feel some satisfaction when they perform better on tests than their peers do--the lower grade to contrast the higher grade is probably a driving factor in the student's pride. I wonder, is there any evolutionary basis in this?

It truly is amazing how the human brain can interpret such a grand idea from such a small amount of information. People don't realize how powerful their brains are and i find that this video is a grand example of the human brains power

The most interesting part of this is just how different the teenagers brain is from an adult not only on a psychological level, but on a biological level as well

Did you know the human body should sleep 4 hours 2 times a day instead of 8. That is why we sometimes wake up at night for no reason.

Using The Simpsons to teach social psychology.

My psychology teacher told me that he could teach the class using nothing but clips from The Simpsons. I didn't believe him at first, but I did a little reading and you can. I think this is crazy, but cool at the same time.

This video was shown to me in class by my absolutely wonderful psychology teacher to show us the five stages of grief and even though the language may seem severe it has grown on me and i will never forget it!

“A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. She raised a glass of water and asked “How heavy is this glass of water?” The answers varied. She replied, “The weight doesn’t matter. It depends on how long I hold it. If i hold it for a minute, no problem. For an hour, i’ll have an ache in my arm. For a day, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed. The weight of the glass doesn’t change, but the longer i hold it, the heavier it becomes. The stress and worries in life are like that glass of water Think about them for a while, nothing happens. bit longer? they begin to hurt. think about them all day long? you will feel paralyzed - incapable of doing anything. Always remember to put the glass down.
