Psychology is important in many different ways, one example of why it is so important is, the research that has been done on many life threatening diseases. By using psychology, psychologist have studied diseases such as, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and many other neurological diseases. Today, we know a whole lot more about these diseases than we did in the past, scientist have even been able to produce medicines that may help victims of these diseases. Psychology is also very important in the education system.

By using intelligence test schools, students can be evaluated and given the correct amount of help that they need in school. For example, IQ test are given to place children in “gifted programs,” by using these test these students are ensured that they will receive the best quality of learning at a pace that is just right for them. On the other hand, these test also let teachers and faculty know which students may need extra help in certain areas in school.

Another reason why psychology is important is, the insight previous research has given us. For example, by studying psychology we learn to understand how the body and mind works. An example of why understanding how the mind and body work is, by understanding them we can do the less complicated things in life, such as control stress, manage time, and study more effectively. Another example would be the research done on psychological illnesses. Using psychological research, doctors have now developed medicine and even cures for victims of the illnesses.

It is also in reference to the usage and application of skill, knowledge and understanding various activities undertaken by humans and how they are used through daily activities, whether that is within events, talking to people, education and employment, relationships and even treating mental health issues.
