Psychology, the scientific enquiry into the human mind and behavior, is omnipresent. Well, to a certain extent, everyone is a psychologist. After all, social competence, defined, in psychology, as the ability to get what one wants from others while still maintaining positive relationships is important to humans as social beings, and would be all but impossible without a fundamental grasp of workings of the psyche.
Pop psychology and pseudoscientific (and also scientific) psychological tests are also prevalent in the media, and psychology has been portrayed in the popular culture. Perhaps the most famous are the comedies Analyze This and Analyze That, both starring Robert De Niro, Billy Cristal and a former cast member of Friends, Lisa Kudrow.
Notwithstanding, psychology is much more than the cliché of a person lying on a couch while a therapist ponders his or her unconscious, and hopefully, the following division provides ample support for this claim. So, Univers Web Site proudly presents Psychology, where one can read about abnormal psychology, child development, perception, neuroscience and other related topics.
