Hard sciences are characterized as relying on experimental, empirical, quantifiable data, relying on the scientific method, and focusing on accuracy and objectivity. Chemistry, physics, and Psychology are examples of hard sciences

Soft sciences are less quantifiable and considered more subjective. The "Social Sciences" such as history and political science are obvious examples.

Sociology would be considered a soft science. However, psychiatry and neural science would be considered hard sciences.

Yes! Psychology is the study of human thought and behavior. The social sciences are studies related to behavior, interactions and surroundings like past history, civic life, decision making and geography. Psychiatry is more based in physical or medical science as it examines both the human mind and behavior in connection with the physiology of the brain. However, psychiatry is often considered the weakest of the medically-based hard sciences due to it's focus on the mind and psychology (social science) in connection with the brain and body (medical/physical/hard science).
