The best way I can interpret psychology is by defining it. Psychology can be defined as the study of humans and animals behavioral science. According to the American Psychological Association, psychology is the scientific study of the mind and behavior (Mcleod, n.d., para. 1). However, the concept of psychology involves many areas of life such as genetics, nature, nurture, and the associations between mind and brain. Although the definition of psychology emphasizes behavior, it does not exclude the rich inner life that we all experience, it includes dreams, daydreams, and other inner experiences(Davis & Palladino, 2006, p. 3).
