Psychology can be defined as the ‘scientific study of the mind’ – how it influences our behaviour, from our communication and memory, to our thoughts and emotions. It is about individuals and their cognitive, biological, and social worlds, and how these factors affect how people think, act, and feel. Many people argue that Psychology developed as a subject due to Darwin’s ideas. He suggested that all living things were related to one another, meaning that human beings can be studied scientifically, like the rest of the natural world. This allows us to gain a deeper understanding of other people.
