MY FIELD OF INTEREST • My field of interest is Psychology because one of the good days I will be an educational psychologist • What I admire about educational psychologist is that they learn processes of understand individual differences in behaviour, personality, intellect, and self- concept. • Educational Psychologists are working side by side with psychiatrists, social workers, teachers, speech and language therapists, and counsellors in order to understand the questions being raised when combining behavioural, cognitive, and social psychology in the classroom setting
