5     What exactly is psychology? It is the scientific study of behavior and the mind. The term comes from two Greek words, psyche and logos, meaning study of the soul. Psychology involves observation and experimentation of actions and reactions, both conscious and subconscious. If it sounds like that covers a lot to you, you are right. Psychology covers a great deal. Individually, it can involve help or advice. More globally, it can involve the mysteries of human nature.
