Psychology comes from two words: psyche and logos. Psyche is the Greek word which means soul or spirit, loosely translated as mind. Logos means knowledge or study like all “logies”. The first Greek letter psi in psyche is used as the international symbol for psychology. Hence, Psychology was originally defined as: the study of the mind.
Psychology is the understanding of how our perceptions govern our behavior. Everything in our lives is affected by how we think.
Psychology is about understanding people and the human mind.
Human nature is the same today as it was during ancient history.
So the principles of psychology are timeless. What you know about psychology will always apply.
“A fundamental understanding of the human psyche is the essential key to successful magic” – Robert-Houdin (Father of Modern Magic)
Just because you understand psychology doesn’t mean you will always use it, you have to keep it’s understanding in awareness for it to be useful.
Psychology consists of subtle differences and big distinctions. It is the little psychological subtleties that make all the difference.
The greatest use of knowledge in psychology is for self/social awareness, communication, marketing, and personal development.
Psychology works on assumptions. Other people’s assumptions follow your assumptions. Other people’s expectations are set by you and everything is the result of your communication.
When you assume the appearance of power, people will give it to you. Leaders are self-appointed. Authority is 80% taken and 20% given.
Everything is Psychology. Everything is affected by psychological factors and those factors govern all that goes on, whether you choose to take control of them or not. With great knowledge of psychology in hand, you will have the power to rule over your own world.
