Why are Psychologists more concerned with the study of human behavior than with the study of the human mind?
July 27, 2007 5:33PM
Because behaviors are easier to observe and that gives them a
something that they can work with in order to help their patient
alter their behavior more directly in terms of daily life. If they
focused more on the workings of the human mind, they would have to
consider bio-chemical reactions that were occurring during the
behavior. In other words, psychologists work with the social
aspects of behavior, and neuroscientists work with the chemical
components of human behavior.
