MEANING OF PSYCHOLOGY:-The word Psychology is derived from the Greek word meaning the “study of the soul” but till date, none of us has seen the soul and we do not know about the thing which is not seen, hence this fact was changed again. The study of this soul has been changed to study the mind, but we can know about our mind, not about anyone else but the true meaning of Psychology is the study of human behaviour. In this process, we do not cover things like playing, walking, and moving. In the process, while learning to think, feel, behave towards others, anger, fear, love is related to all of them.

“PSYCHO” — “meaning is the soul”
