My name is Liam McCommons and I’m taking psychology 105 because it seemed interesting. When it comes to psychology I don’t really have any kind of background in it. When I hear the word psychology I think of Dr. Sydney Freedman, who was a fictional psychologist on the tv show M*A*S*H. The three topics that interest me most are: Personality and Culture, because I think it’d be interesting to see how our culture shapes our personalities. Group dynamics, because It may show how to better interact with others in a group setting. and finally How to Get Good Sleep, I’m interested in this one because I tend not to sleep very well and would like any advice I can get on how to do it better. The three that interest me the least are: How we make memories, mostly because its not something I’ve ever thought about. Chemicals and Consciousness, I’m honestly not sure what its going to be about so it doesn’t peak my interest. And obedience which just doesn’t sound that exciting. The question I have about psychology is where is it heading.
