Psychology is a very broad subject that looks at everything from learning, memory, motivation and emotion, to thinking, personality and social behaviour.

A psychologist is a practitioner of psychology. It is their job to understand the role of a person’s mental functions in their behaviour. There are many fields of psychology, including clinical, cognitive, forensic and health psychology.
