Lesson 4: Is This Right for You?
If you would like to do psychology, you need to be prepared to invest many hours and years of work. Psychology is a multifaceted field of study. There are different fields (psychotherapy, child development etc.) and there are different disciplines (research, practical etc.). So, it is not a narrow path – there are actually lots of different options to explore. All of the above makes psychology a content-rich course. On the whole, you need to be interested in how the brain works. In terms of your personality, you need to be empathetic, insightful, self-aware and disciplined.
