Mind,Behavior and Psychological Science
Psychologymaximizes scientific techniques as it is in any other researchstudies to prove their perceptions empirically. To have amultifaceted comprehension of the behavior of humans, biological,cognitive, sociocultural, developmental, whole individual andbehavioral standpoints must be examined. Psychological science isfoundationally the study of the behavior and system of the mind.Psychologists use the examination of the state of mind to recommendsolutions to human problems. Psychological science is quite broadincluding the entire diversity of behavior in people and their mentalfunctioning and process. It explains why the study of the human mindshould not just limit to psychiatry (Gross, 2016). That is themedical arm that does a diagnosis and care of mental illnesses. It isin this regard that the researcher will explore the psychologicalscience behind human’s mind and behavior. The mind, behavior andpsychological science are intertwined and complementary.
TheMind and Human Behavior
The mind of someone has the treasured beliefs, high inclinations,unchallenged presumptions, or personal convictions and biases. Themind conceives thoughts, moods, intentions, perception, memories andother mental functions. It is the idea that is conceived in the mindthat is evidenced in our actions (Gross, 2016). That is, whatever isconceptualized in our mind determines our behavior. The internalthinking processes that happen in the mind of an individualdetermines their behavior. Also, self-concept and personality have asignificant effect on people’s thoughts, feelings, and doings.Keller and Schoenfiled (2014) elaborated that even culture and oursocial interactions influence the state of our minds as well asbehavior.
Gross (2016) has sought to examine behavior in isolation from themental processes. He insists on watching the events that can be seenexternally in someone- inducements in our surroundings and thehuman’s reactions to them. To Keller and Schoenfiled (2014) who isa behaviorist, the thoughts or feelings of someone are entirely anonfactor. It is the human behavior to be examined and quantified.According to Keller and Schoenfiled (2014), responses are altered bytheir after-effects. This line of thinking is significant incomprehending the environmental influences that affect all types ofhuman knowledge. It also creates weighty approaches for alteringbehavior by modifying the environment.
Psychologicalscience is founded on objectives and provable suggestions. There mustbe a researcher who stipulates a study, gathers data and interpretthe outcomes to determine human behavior and processes of the mind.The psychological standpoint looks for the grounds of a particularbehavior in the operation of genes, the brain and nervous network(Gross, 2016). Today, psychologists are careful to distinguish thespiritual mind and the physical body. Rene Descartes in the 17thcentury determined that our dispositions, inclinations, behavioralways and potentials all originate from our physical framework (Keller& Schoenfiled, 2014). Psychological modifications emanate fromthe relations between the genetics engraved in people’s geneticcomponents and the effect of our surroundings.
People’sbehaviors are differentiated by their different mental processes likelearning, their ability to remember, standpoints and their levels ofrationality. Therefore, people behave in different manners comparedwith one another. An individual’s thoughts and deeds are theoutcomes of the distinctive cognitive frameworks of standpoints andjudgments of his occurrences. It is the many interpretations thatpeople make on the daily encounters that make them behavedifferently, as each of them deems fit. Disparities among individualsspring up from alterations in continuous characteristics and innerpersonalities referred to as traits and spirits.
