Unit 1 Lecture 2
Introduction to Industrial Psychology
WHAT IS PSYCHOLOGY?
• “The scientific study of mind and behavior.”
• Psychology is a varied field. Psychologists conduct basic and applied
research, serve as consultants to communities and organizations,
diagnose and treat people, and teach future psychologists and those
who will pursue other disciplines. They test intelligence and
personality.
• Many psychologists work as health care providers. They assess
behavioral and mental function and well-being. Other psychologists
study how human beings relate to each other and to machines, and
work to improve these relationships.
WHAT IS PSYCHOLOGY?
• The application of psychological research can decrease
the economic burden of disease on government and
society as people learn how to make choices that
improve their health and well-being.
• The strides made in educational assessments are
helping students with learning disabilities. Psychological
science helps educators understand how children think,
process and remember — helping to design effective
teaching methods.
WHAT IS PSYCHOLOGY?
• In many countries, Psychological science contributes to
justice by helping the courts understand the minds of
criminals, evidence and the limits of certain types of
evidence or testimony.
• The science of psychology is pervasive. Psychologists
work in some of the most prominent companies and
organizations. From Google, Boeing and NASA to the
health care organizations and research groups to Disney
and NASCAR — psychologists are there, playing
important roles.
