There is so much more to psychology than just clinical psychology. In the field, there are so many clinical psychologists. The field has a demand for many different kinds of psychologists that people sometimes do not even know about.

If you really understand the concept of psychology, you can tell what a person is feeling in terms of general emotions or thoughts by looking into their eyes. When a person falls in love they feel connected most when they look into the eyes of the person they love. This is why love birds stare into eachothers eyes because the world "disappears."

"Give Paul Bloom one hour, and he'll teach you "the psychology of everything," illustrating some of the most fundamental elements of human nature through case studies about compassion, racism, and sex. He discusses some of the biggest questions in the nature versus nurture debate, including "Are we hard-wired to care about others?" Bloom points out why stereotyping can be both detrimental and beneficial, and he even explains what the porn preference of monkeys tells us about our own sexual choosiness, or lack thereof. After the hour is up you'll understand why Bloom calls psychology, because of its cross-disciplinary nature, "the perfect liberal arts major."
