Since psychology is the discipline which is new to university students, they are very interested in it. However, once they go to the lecture, they find out that it is different from what they think since it deals with behavior, cognitive or experimental (psychology). It seems that it has nothing to do with our daily life. In fact, psychology is the discipline that closely relates to our daily life. Public critical problems such as bullying, random killers and false accusation and individual critical problems such as makeup, failure of diet and romance are all themes of psychology and psychology has therefore a lot of research. However, this kind of "applied" psychology has not been taught at universities properly. Therefore, this textbook deals with such "applied"psychology that can be used even after students graduate from universities and go into the workforce.
