What will I remember from this class in the future five years? I can't say, because I don't know. From this class, which I learned most is the way of thinking. Since the first chapter, all of the chapters that book are teaching is about the scientific thinking and research and findings based of the scientific method of thinking. Looking back from the start, psychology is all about the study of mind, behavior and the way we see things. Everything that I learned in this class about human being, such as, the cognitive study, the personality study, the emotion study, the twins study..... However, from all of those, what leaves me with most impressive memories is the scientific way of thinking. Scientific method refers to a body of techniques for investigating phenomena, acquiring new knowledge, or correcting and integrating previous knowledge. To be termed scientific, a method of inquiry must be based on gathering empirical and measurable evidence subject to specific principles of reasoning. Evidence speaks louder than words, and ruling out the confirmation is the thing you should never forget, etc. Those are not only the way of doing researches and studies, and also the way should be applied into my future life and work. There are so many distractions in this world. See thing as they are, not you want them to be. It's a simple rule. However, applying it to the real world and real life could make the life much easier and better. And also learning something about how human brain works can always somehow gives you a advantage in the future.
