It helps with your own personal development

It helps with your own personal development. It can help you understand the motives of other people and your own motives better which can result in personal growth and development. When you study psychology you’ll learn to understand the flaws in your own thinking – such as those that come from cognitive biases – and you’ll learn to better help yourself overcome various forms of anxiety disorder/bad habits etc. As you learn more about how development occurs, how personality forms, and how factors like society and culture impact on behaviour, you might find yourself gaining a deeper understanding of the many influences that have impacted on your own life.
