What is Psychology?

Asexperia

Valued Senior Member
Psychology is the biological science that studies the individual's reactions to his external and internal environment. These reactions can be: conscious, subconscious and unconscious. The conscious reactions are: conscience, will and intelligence. The subconscious reactions are: emotions, feelings, dreams and habits. The unconscious reactions are all instincts. The individual can have both immediate and mediate reactions.

The methods of study of Psychology are direct and indirect observation, and directed introspection. The objectives of Psychology are the personal adjustment and the adaptation of the individual to the environment. This view of Psychology is a Reactionism.

Did I miss the post where someone asked "What is Psychology"?

hopefully that post was more like
"what is the male generic introspective un refined definition of psychology?"

though... since the thread fails to raise a subject for discussion the thread is likely to be closed when a mod finds it.
and\or moves it to free thoughts...

it probably should be in free thoughts as it does not raise a subject for discussion.

its just a tweet

Asexperia may have forgotten to include the part where [URL='http://sciforums.com/members/asexperia.286196/']Asexperia writes something to raise a subject for discussion.[/URL]
looks like the copy n paste subject filler definition got in there..
missing all the other important bits though

I wait for more "reactions" on this topic.
There is nothing to react to. All you've done is to define psychology. I'm sure we could quibble with your specific definitions if we could understand what you've written.

When we have Rainway trying to figure out what you've written, all hope is lost.
 
....and, we thought Elvis was dead?

..........................
Or, Elvis, are you looking for some sort of affirmation of self?
While it is rewarding to have the respect of one's peers, self affirmation/self respect is, in the end, all that really matters.

Psychology is the biological science that studies the individual's reactions

= wrong
Psychology is the study of the human mind.
individual's reactions
is a tiny factor of a part of the over all science.

your clear inference is to render the science down for you to make a point.

i am curious what that point is
your comment has bias

i am waiting for the "why" assuming you are capable of using the "why" to define the point... which you have not made other than to skew a sense of the definition to assert a subject nature.

your position to place yourself as an observer is not missed.

i hope it is something interesting.
 
The word of the day “reaction” lol

I’ll play. So, are we continuously reacting to our environment? An example would be that studies have shown if we are in a room filled with bright, natural light...our moods will improve. We will be less depressed, all things considered.

What did you wish to discuss? :smile:

Mind is a hypothetical concept, we cannot access that.



In Psychology there is no generalization. Each individual reacts according to their character. Faced with a dangerous situation, not everyone runs away, some fight, others start crying, etc.
So, it sounds like they were all reacting...
 
Mind is a hypothetical concept, we cannot access that.

that is your opinion.
it is good to have opinions
just because you learn how to form an opinion and then lean a state of emotional comfort up against it, does not mean that opinion is a correct factual analysis of the things other than your inner minds opinion of an external experiential observation communicated with another life form.

Psychoanalysis is a pseudoscience and Behaviorism is a mechanistic study of behavior.

CHARACTER CLASSIFICATION

The person's character is the way of reacting to the environment. Based on my own observations, I have
identified ten very common types of characters among the population,

NEUTRAL (N)

a) Extraverted: it is sociable and friendly
b) Introverted: it is shy and quiet

POSITIVE (+)

c) Studied or applied: it stands out in the class group, gets good grades, studies because it likes, reads a lot.
d) Decent and polite: it complies with the rules and norms of harmonious human relations, it is not rude.
e) Peaceful or calm: it is related to the lymphatic temperament, emotional stability, projects an inner peace.
f) Serious or formal: it is responsible and its word is law for itself. It knows how to differentiate between moments of solemnity and those of jocosities.

NEGATIVE (-)

g) Delinquent: it is a violator of the laws established by society.
h) Aggressive: it is angry, furious; sometimes it becomes uncontrollable.
i) Cunning: it is deceiving, enjoys cheating, either to hide an incorrect action or to carry out a criminal act.
j) Prostitution: it is a sex merchant.

OTHER LESS COMMON CHARACTERS ARE:

a) Creative: it brings new ideas, be they artistic, intellectual, religious, etc.
b) Thinker: it speculates on various topics, always find an answer to its questions.

Prostitution is an art form
it requires creativity rules, boundary's and forethought and self control
...

p.s
often conservative non liberal cultures define the narccisist as the sexual deviant because the sexuality is the free agent looking for freedom to expres its self
this desire to punish freedom and enslave sexuality is miss labelled and defined as the self indulgent narcissist.

failure to recognise this creates sexual development problems and creates addictions and abuse.

b) Thinker: it speculates on various topics, always find an answer to its questions.

The compulsion to deliver an absolute outcome to a concept of query is not innate to a "thinker"
it is innate to a "problem solver"
2 completely different personality types.

i like your lines & boundary's and boxes

it does have a very conventional christian/religious right vs wrong moral over tone to it.

you have included moral subjective absolute laws to the functions of the personality frames which is a little bit self indulgent of you.

you must always make sense to yourself, ... when you must make sense to yourself.
but ...
just because something doesn't quite fit, you should not hammer it into a box.
you will only confuse yourself later on further down the road when you realize you need to divide 1 box into 3 boxes

In an individual there can be a combination of characters to a greater or lesser degree, even a delinquent can be decent to hide appearances. A prostitute can be creative. A studied can be aggressive. We can call the combination of characters personality.

= if i have a handful of rocks, some of them can be pointy
some of them can be a bit pointy and not soo pointy...
some of them are rocks in my hand...

huh ?
texture is not a declaration of scientific principal by its self unless your dealing with binary logic/laws

do you think personalities are binary ?(i am well aware how complex this question is & answering with a simple yes or no is a complete waste of time)

even a delinquent can be decent to hide appearances.

example of the first sentence construction as a statement...
personalaties may have texture...

A prostitute can be creative.

can a saint be a serial killer ?

A studied can be aggressive.
your language translator has gone wrong.
the wrong word has been put in.
you may need to read around the subject a bit more and then find an alternate range of words.

We can call the combination of characters personality.
we can also call it 'bob'

however, applying labels and name badges does not define its nature.
the reverse is also true, by abandoning specificity does not define it as an invalid process to attribute human value to.

the message between the lines(cultural narrative) that you are displaying by omission is suggesting quite a strong subjective conservative absolute.

this is human science not free thoughts, so the idea of you trolling the subject(human science psychology) comes into question.
however, you have a lot of posts and that would seem less likely of a senior member.
