"What is psychology?"

Psychology is the study of the human mind and behaviors. Psychologists are typically people that have a natural talent when it comes to understanding others, but the job also requires a high education. To become a psychologist, you must earn your masters degree and also receive a license.

"Like all science, psychology is knowledge; and like science again, it is knowledge of a definite thing, the mind."

"How much do they make? How quick is the job growing?"

A psychologist's annual pay is around $68,900. To me, it doesn't seem like very much when looking at the required educational standards. The growth rate of psychology has been projected to be from 7% to 13%.

"What do they do?"

Jobs for psychologists vary from assisting the military to helping students within a school. In a military setting, psychologists may help soldiers transition from the battlefield to home life. In an academic setting, a psychologist may help a student overcome the great amounts of stress that they face daily.
