Many years of watching criminal justice shows such as Criminal Minds and Bones fueled my passion to learn more about the human mind and human behaviors. Beginning at an early age, the human mind and how it works had always entertained me. Although the only psychology class I have taken so far includes of AP psychology.
I enjoy studying psychology because of the human mind and how we can be put in comparison to animals. Psychology circles around the world through everyone. Often at public events, my mother and I would watch the people around us. I would call this “people watching”, only to realize that I was asking myself what makes them unlike.
Another place I would watch would be in class I often observe my classmates along with their different personalities and ask myself why they are so different and why some have difficulty with attention whether they are not getting enough or too much. After observing, I would try to find ways to help them and psychology will give me that chance. Psychology consists of two parts, biological and social. The reason I want to go into psychology is mostly for the types of research. Such as, how the environment can cause different personalities and genetic types.
These two subjects help unmask the truth about humans. With biology and social means being associated with psychology, this makes it broad. I myself am interested in behavioral psychology and forensic psychology. Psychology expands each year and many discoveries are found each day. Most of these findings are due to research projects made by universities. These research results and projects help unveil facts about our behaviors and actions.
As a psychologist I will be able to have my own research and investigations, which I am quite excited about. Psychology articles includes ideas that can intrigue almost anyone but me at most. My desire to study psychology consists of wondering why people act they way they do and wondering what each behavior means in life. Another reason would have to be wanting to understand myself as a person. Psychology has always had a huge meaning to my life. After realizing watching people and the two aspects of Psychology are what I want to continue to study in the future, I made the decision to apply at this college because it will provide everything I need to develop a better career for my future.
