First blog post

I’m taking General Psychology because I had friends recommend me the course. I’m also taking it because I need the credit. I have little to no background about the subject but i heard that it will make me look at people with a different perspective. When i hear the word “psychology” I think the study of the mind.  Looking at the course schedule, the 3 topics that look most interesting to me are moral development, memory failures, and sleep. The reason they look interesting to me is because they are topics that i can potentially apply to myself. The 3 least are observational learning, brain structures, and neurons. If I’m being honest, the reason i find these the least interesting is because they might have lots of content and reading, but i might be wrong. I guess a question I’d have about psychology is if psychologist would use their knowledge to manipulate people to their will?
