Very short psychology lesson
Psychology (dr.-Greek - soul and knowledge) is an academic and applied science about behavior and mental processes.
Scientific psychology is a system of theoretical (conceptual), methodical and experimental properties of cognition and research of mental phenomena; the transition from an unrestricted and heterogeneous description of these phenomena to their precise objective definition, to the possibility of methodical registration, the experimental establishment of causal relationships and regularities, and the continuity of their results.
Psychology is the field of scientific knowledge that explores the features and patterns of the emergence, formation and development (change) of mental processes (sensation, perception, memory, thinking, imagination), mental states (tension, motivation, frustration, emotions, feelings) and mental properties orientation, abilities, inclinations, character, temperament) of a person, that is, the psyche as a special form of vital activity, as well as the psyche of animals.
If a person laughs too much, even over stupid things, this person is sad deep inside himself.
If a person sleeps too much, he is alone.
If a person talks little and quickly, he keeps a secret.
If a person can not cry, he is weak.
If a person is in abnormal quantities, he is tense.
If a person cries for trifles, he is soft-hearted.
If someone asks about you despite the fact that he is busy, then this one really loves you.
