We are naturally drawn to the idea that when we can understand people, then we can help them resolve their issues or even achieve their full potential. The tools a student of Psychology gains will be especially helpful in jobs that focus on people, both in managing them, bringing the best out of them, and even helping to create a positive image in them for a company or product.
