Psychology is the systematic study of human thought, emotion and behavior.  Seeing through a psychological lens helps us to understand the unique perspective each individual brings to understanding and interacting within their world.  Such a perspective simultaneously sheds light on the innumerable commonalities each human being shares.  By applying a scientific and systematic study of the individual, we can develop a wider, deeper and more useful perspective of ourselves, and others.
