Of all the many wonders that man has probed on earth, in the sea and in the sky, the most interesting of all seems to be man himself. One need only examine current books. films, tv programs to see that most people are really much more interested in human nature than they are in Mother Nature.
By and large, people are not impressed by arguments that proved how insignificant the individual is compared to the immense universe. Believe me or not, actually, human being is just about as many time greater than the ‘entire universe’ because human acquire mind and the ability to think. Even the ‘entire universe’ doesn’t have mind and the capacity to think.
People always want a practical approach to solve problems. Some people believe it would be possible to solve problems if one study about the causes or roots of the problem. Others feel that you need to study the man and the mankind in order to solve problems create by them. One needs to know how and why people think following certain kind of ways and act the way they do.
Perhaps the strongest practical interest in human nature comes from our intense curiosity about ourselves.
How do I perceive things?
How do I remember, forget or in short learn?
How is my intelligence like?
What is my personality?
In order to follow the dictum of Socrates, “Know thyself” we fall in love for Psychology.
