Hi readers! It’s Monday, March 3rd. And many people are going through life just passing by the same person everyday, not realizing what that person is going through and what is running through their mind. This is where studying psychology in school has become a big part of my life that has changed my way of perceiving other people and the way they behave and think. This not only changes the way that I perceive other people but also to better understand myself as I continue to grow and develop towards the future. Since everything in life is connected, I can continually see how and why people behave and think the way they do and if need be, also how to improve oneself.
As I continue through high school, it has been that time that has been getting closer where I have to finally decide what I want to do in the future. As I go further along in my psychology textbook I have found that I am slowly finding myself interested in the field of psychology because of the way I can now think in a more logical way and analyze things in different ways then before. There are different fields in psychology that I would be interested in because of the way that it challenges me to think, such as personality wise, behaviorally, etc. The field that I have been considering the most is forensic psychology. This of course has to do with evaluations made on the people at custody and the statements of attorneys and judges. My cousin has been an influence in my choice because she is actually studying forensic psychology already in her third year of college, and she is always saying what a fascinating and interesting course it is.
Psychology has always fascinated me but now that I’m actually studying it, it has made me excited for what I have yet to learn and apply to my everyday life. I now not only view the world with one set of eyes but another pair that analyzes through a psychological point of view.
