Chapter 1 talks about what pschology is and how to tell the difference between science and psodoscience. The most interesting part of the chapter was when it talked about confirmation bias and naive realism. It is interesting to learn about times that our common sence is wrong. The list of common proverbs was also interesting. You would never realize how contradictory these sayings are without seeing them all together. Confirmation bias is also really interesting to learn about, everyone thinks that they are completely impartial and its everyone else who is twisting the facts but in reality, everyone has biases and everyone succumbs to them. This relates to another important part of the chapter which explains that overcomming and protecting against the influence of biases is one of the most important reasons that phycologists use the scientific meathod.
