Type A Personality: The American Dream. CEO Of some huge corporation. Drive the jaw dropping sports car into work every morning. Drive back every night to the beautiful spouse waiting for you in the multimillion-dollar mansion. Have the kids running up the front steps just in time for supper and stories of their days. Right?
What I learned in Psych 1001 is that this could not be more false. While this may be the American Dream for some, others have completely different views. Psych hasn't just taught me to hate love having to memorize who William James or Sigmund Freud is and what they did; rather it's taught me an entirely different thinking strategy. It's taught me that people are completely different. It's taught me that diversity is a beautiful thing.
When I'm graduated and off in the working world, I'll still be able to use my Psych 1001 days. While this class was a mere brush over everything that the field of Psychology actually is, it's taught me to remain open about thinking. It's taught me to never jump to conclusions. It's taught me to explore all options before I think I've found the perfect solution.
