Psychology

Psychology is the study of the mind. It is most commonly the study of discipline, an applied science which seeks to understand individuals and groups through general principles, and applying case studies to diagnose issues.

A professional practitioner of psychology is called a psychologist. Psychologists attempt to understand the role of a person's mental functions in their individual behaviour and how they behave in a social environment.
