Psychology is defined as "the scientific study of the human mind and its functions". (Cherry, 2013) This means that psychology is basically the study of why we do things. The human mind controls the way we think, feel, and react to certain situations in everyday life. There are many psychologists who have come up with tests and theories to find answers to the many questions that we have about human behavior.
During my time at Keystone College, I changed my major because I was not really sure what kind of career I would like to pursue. After being a science major for a short period of time, I quickly learned that this was not for me. I was not happy, nor was I motivated to do any of my work.
I knew that college was not the place to fool around, so I decided to get my act together and actually do something that I would enjoy and take great interest in.
I then decided that Psychology is the most important appropriate major for me simply because I love to help people. Also, because I am eager to learn about explanations for unexplained actions. Since I was younger, I always had the passion to be able to help someone out even for the smallest things.
Although being a psychology major can be interpreted in many different ways, I would like to be a child psychologist because I like children and I would love to help them solve their problems. I am also not sure if I am fit to work with them. These children are our future generation and need to be taken care of.
The field of psychology also interested me, because I was always curious as to why we do the things that we do. That always intrigued me. The human mind is just one big question.
As of now, I am not completely sure what else I would like to pursue in my career with psychology. I also minor in criminal justice and I hope to somehow tie the two together. I do know that time is ticking and I need to make my decision soon.
