If you have an interest in helping people to better understand their friends, family, coworkers, society and themselves and in helping them deal with everyday living, psychology may be the career choice for you. This discipline strives to achieve a scientifically driven understanding of the social, biological, cultural and neurological factors that influence human behavior and interaction. A refined understanding of human behavior can provide an advantage in negotiations, presentations, client meetings, disciplinary responsibilities and more.
