Hi there, Mr Casper @ the ghost.
Another so-called future engineer here.
Intro: Just call me Opera Ghost.
I'm a JPA scholar, will be flying to the United States to read Engineering this coming Fall. Currently I'm enjoying my last week in INTEC Shah Alam under American Degree Foundation Program (ATU12).
I'm taking Introduction to Psychology
in my third semester. The book we use is "Psychology- An Introduction" by Benjamin B. Lahey (eighth edition) Actually I'm supposed to study for my last psychology test right now. Hehe..
I find the subject not only educational but enlighting as well. I learn more about myself and human behavior in general. So far the topics we covered include: biological foundations of behavior, states of consciousness, basic principles of learning, memory, developmental psychology, motivation and emotion, personality theories and assessment, stress and health
What I have learned is just, of course, a tiny scratch out of a gigantic iceberg. Or just the thin vapour hovering on top of it, perhaps. How can someone possibly understand psychology well in two months' time? I will probably get a minor in psychology later. (That is, if I can cope with my engineering course well enough.
) Now I wish to read more on this vast topic. Any recommendations? (I prefer something light, don't give me a dictionary-size textbook!)
