Psychology 1001 had truly opened up my minds. I gained many new knowledge during this course that will not only help me in my everyday life and help act as a base to my future educations, but it also have increase my ways of thinking and reasoning. Because of this course, I have more approaches to problems. I learned that there are more than one credible explanations for things that happened and that one definite answer may not explain it all. We have to consider every possible aspects and hidden variables to actually have an accurate solution to things, ranging from everyday problems to scientific research. I also acquired a bigger "knowledge bank" that I rely on when for other classes or any situation that it is called for.
What really left an impression on me and I will remember its concepts for a long time is pseudoscience. I've seen it many times in my life, but not til this course that I learn what it's really is. This course gave me better understanding and more knowledge of what pseudoscience and all the warning signs associate with it so that I can better detect it in real life. With this new knowledge about pseudoscience, I will be able to distinguish claims that are not back up by scientific findings like ads that say " will help you lose weight by just sitting on a chair."Of course, I know that is an impossible claims now. A lot of money will be saved by everyone if they know what pseudoscience really is so they won't fall prey to those fad diet adds and other impossible claims.
