What is Psychology
Psychology gives us explanations for why we think, feel and behave the way we do. Psychology is interested in explaining individual behaviour such as what makes you different and similar to other individuals and explaining how you interact with others
Ultimately, Psychology aims to provide explanations for our behaviour, but because psychology is a science, Psychologists back up their explanations with evidence. This allows explanations to be tested by carrying out studies and collecting data. This in turn allows us to evaluate claims about human behaviour.

What factors did you find for each side of the nature / nurture debate?
