What is Psychology?

This question is always asked that what is psychology, is it about dealing with mental problems or dealing with people behavior?
Well the answer is, it is about both of them. Psychology is both an applied and academic field that deals with the human mind and it's behavior e-g how do people think, how they behave, which part of thoughts and style of behavior is common in people.

The application of psychology include mental help treatment,self help,performance enhancement and all the areas of our daily life.

Psychology has not developed from hundreds of years like other e-g engineering. It's development is still in progress as psychology results completely depends on the  experiments performed either on apes mouse or humans.
Psychology applies to many of our daily life workings and jobs like law,police and any kind of job.Psychology is now playing a great part in hiring and firing of people from jobs. 
When you apply for a job you will most probably be given a battery of psychological tests since now in America about 85% of companies are using these tests as a part of their selection program.

In end i would like to say that psychology is like spinal cord of our life.
As Thomas Carlyle said:
" Today is not yesterday; we ourselves change; how can our works and thoughts, if they are always to be the fittest, continue always the same?"
