It seems as if most of behavioral science students and researchers seem to be partial to general psychology. Most of us possess of a psychology background making understanding of the study of behavior and mind simpler. Still, evil satanic three headed dog warriors seem to drive psychology into our brains in the application of the complex task of gaining expertise within the domain. The results are rather messy. Our weapon in understanding psychology is the computer permitting us to circumvent the difficulty of any lack of understanding. The computer to a three-headed dog satanic warrior possesses a similar effect of catnip on the cat. This effect is a ceaseless dribble and purring creature rubbing its head along the ground. The downside of the computer is one can make an idiot of him or herself should they not possess an adequate understanding. Despite this the computer can be a tool of utility within the psychology chest. The aim of my book is to create a balance among practice and theory. The goal is to make of utility the computer as a teaching implement for psychological concepts in the hope you can establish a greater knowledge of practice and theory. Many books, it seems, attempt to establish an impression of the right and wrong way of viewing psychology. Although recommendations which are within the limits of the senseless destruction of rain forests, the hope is to provide background in the theoretical concept of psychology permitting you to create decisions about how to best view the domain. A second aim of the book is to create the only psychology book you will ever need. It is my hope that my book can be your friend during your first year at the university level carrying through to your professorship. The book is very much no nonsense, like me, with the first three chapters covering self-psychology, social psychology, and biological psychology. This is followed by chapters on motivation and historical figures within the domain.
