What the Expert Says:

Hi! I guess different people would define it differently. My daughter is majoring in it in college. I would say psychology is the scientific study of the mind and how it works. Some would limit that to human behavior in a given context.

Dictionary definition
1.  The science that deals with mental processes and behavior.
The emotional and behavioral characteristics of an individual, group, or activity: the psychology of war.
2.  Subtle tactical action or argument used to manipulate or influence another: He used poor psychology on his employer when trying to make the point.
3.  Philosophy. The branch of metaphysics that studies the soul, the mind, and the relationship of life and mind to the functions of the body.

Reminder, to counsel, you need a masters degree AT LEAST and I believe a doctorate to be a psychologist.   They work To evaluate people in schools, hospitals, private practice and more.  Check out journals like Psychology Today.
