CAIRO BOOKS's Description
What do psychologists do? Why do they do it? Does it take some sort of special
aptitude to become a psychologist? How do you think psychologists feel about us
asking all these questions about them? A psychologist friend of yours tells you
that he is unhappy all the time and thinks it might have something to do with
how he makes a living—how would you help? Now substitute the word “people” for
psychologist and you have some idea of the kinds of questions the science of
psychology tries to answer—questions about behavior, motive, aptitude, feeling,
perception, and therapy. And while psychology may not provide definitive
answers, it does offer powerful insights that can help you better understand
who you are and why you feel and act the way you do.
