don't think I'm overstating the case when I suggest that psychology is one of
the most fertile fields of endeavor for radical lifelong learners. For one
thing, there is an intense and abiding popular interest in virtually every
aspect of the subject. For a learner who can do responsible "library" research and can
write like a pro can create an entire library of popular books on the history
and personalities of psychology. Or if you are into computer science, you can
mine all the data out there being created in the name of cognitive neuroscience.
It goes on and on like that. I will write more here on the subject at a later

especially, the sub-topic you find most intriguing at the moment.

|Psych and Me
"majored" in psychology for a few semesters during my later undergrad college years.
I started with the usual misperceptions--you know, like learning how to spook my
friends by figuring out what they are thinking. Frankly, the only reason I got
into university psychology was that my initial choice of studies (physics and
mathematics) was seriously interfering with my social life. Psych sounded
simpler. Well, I found it was quite different from physics ... as I had expected.
But not as dumbed-down
simple as I had imagined. I never finished college, anyway.
