  1. I know what you mean. I actually have a degree in it — PPP (Psychology and Physiology). I got so fed up with trying to explain what it all was so I decided to say “Physiology” when people asked me what my degree topic was. Just because it is easier to explain in a short way — bodies not minds!

    Saying you are a scientist or have anything to do with science is quite a conversation stopper (everyone changes the subject) outside the scientific community, I have found.

  2. “Psychology owes a debt to philosophy it can never repay.”

    Amen, brother!

  3. Maxine, you’re right. People usually ask me to read their minds…with disastrous results, depending on how many beers I’ve had.

  4. I face the problem everyday when people ask me what I have studird and I say Psychology.Their next question always depends on the reason or the time that they approached me.
    Person who wants to date me:”Well you must be very dangerous woman!You will know what I think about all the time!”
    Person that doesn’t have a clue: “So can you tell me what will happen in the future?”
    I think that even my mother doesn’t really know what exactly she paid for- cause she’s the one that paid for my college!
