Dear Students,
I have strong conviction that you are going to achieve a decision making position in your career within a short span of time. Let it be any function of the organization, unless one has a realistic picture and approach of the thriving factors of any decision to be made, it becomes extremely difficult to arrive at a decision which is equally risky. Thus the study of research methodology will provide you with the knowledge and skills and help you learn different techniques of conducting research which form a very important part of your job. Thus to have a deeper insight in research methodology, I would like you to study the process and hope it will help you to study the process research and hope it will help you to know procedures of collecting data, preparing questionnaires, preparing reports, etc. Yours sincerely

Psychology
Psychology is the science of mind and behavior 1. Its immediate goal is to understand behavior and mental processes by researching and establishing both general principles and specific cases. For many practitioners, one goal of applied psychology is to benefit society. In this field, a professional practitioner or researcher is called a psychologist, and can be classified as a social scientist, behavioral scientist, or cognitive scientist. Psychologists attempt to understand the role of mental functions in individual and social behavior, while also exploring the physiological and neurobiological processes that underlie certain functions and behaviors. Psychologists explore such concepts as perception, cognition, attention, emotion, phenomenology, motivation, brain functioning, personality, behavior, and interpersonal relationships. Some, especially depth psychologists, also consider the unconscious mind2. Psychologists employ empirical methods to infer causal and correlational relationships between psychosocial variables. In addition, or in opposition, to employing empirical and deductive methods, some—especially clinical and counseling psychologists—at times rely upon symbolic interpretation and other inductive techniques. Psychology incorporates research from the social sciences, natural sciences, and humanities, such as philosophy.
