why do people use the scientific method

The leading debates in psychology are supported by empirical evidence which mostly use the scientific method of study. б For example, the Behaviourist approach is supported by scientific findings such as PavlovБs research into classical conditioning. б Under controlled conditions, Pavlov aimed to investigate whether he could condition a dog to salivate when it heard a bell, after hearing the bell when being given food many times before. б This experiment used a high level of control, e. g. the measurement of the salivation, time intervals between hearing the bell etc. б PavlovБs research is one of many studies which helped Psychology to become more scientific and objective. б When psychologists use the scientific method of study, it enables them to apply their findings to real life

 why do we have dreams about certain people

why do we have dreams about certain people

What does it mean when you dream about someone? For some reason, almost everything we see in our dreams is encoded in symbols. For example, if you re afraid of losing your job, chances are you will not see yourself thinking about that in the dream. You could even have the famous dream of losing an important exam. Or, you could simply. If you feel guilty for the things you did against your values, culture or religion, you may dream that you re falling. So most of the dreams are encoded in symbols rather than a direct representation of your thoughts. Like everything in the dream is in the form of symbols, dream about someone can be a symbol of someone else. It is critical to understand that people in your dreams have an important psychological significance, no matter how little time they

 why do people leave the mormon church

why do people leave the mormon church

One of the common complaints of those who leave Mormonism is that Бno oneБ will answer their questions about the history of the church. БNo oneБ will explain how it is that Joseph Smith gave different accounts of The First Vision or claimed to have translated the Book of Abraham from papyri that all Egyptian scholars say are about something else. But to me, these complaints sometimes sound a bit hollow or simplistic. YouБre only discovering now that science doesnБt prove religion? DidnБt you ever struggle with the contradiction of dinosaurs and the Adam and Eve story? You never thought about the impossibility of virgin birth? These are the kinds of questions every five year old has and they seem a bit juvenile coming now from an adult. "Deconstructor" (September 2010), exmormon. org

 why do we get sleepy after lunch

why do we get sleepy after lunch

Imagine this. You are at work, all charged up and have slotted the 3 P. M. to 4 P. M. window for an important assignment. You have your lunch around 2 P. M, and thereafter find yourself struggling to keep your eyes open! You are lazy and lethargic, suddenly. What could be the reason of the post lunch slump? Is there a reason why you feel this way? Certainly. The phenomena is common with everybody who has a slightly heavier lunch or one that is rich in carbohydrates. Sneaking an afternoon siesta is actually a very common practice in India. In parts of Bengal shop owners shut their shops from 3 P. M. to 5 P. M. to catch up on their afternoon nap or Б Bhaater Ghoom Б as they call it, after a meal packed with carb-rich rice, and vegetables. Here's the real reason why we feel sleeping after

 why do the people we love hurt us

why do the people we love hurt us

Why Do We Fall In Love With The Ones Who Hurt Us The Most? In my lifetime, I am confident to say that I have fallen in love twice, and both stories ended the same way. Both guys had similarities such as being from the same primary and secondary schools, had good looks, or at least that was my definition of Бgood lookingБ, had lots of female attention, including mine, and last but not least, they broke my heart. I fell in love at a very young age. You must be thinking that how can anyone at the age of 12 know what love is. Well, I knew that was love because it took me 5 years to get over this guy, my first love. We knew each other when we were 10. We fought a lot when we saw each other, we could never get along and we never hesitated to get the other into trouble. 2 years passed and things

 why do we bother with love if it never lasts

why do we bother with love if it never lasts

You may not know it, by what the news media, the so-called "social-scientists" and Hollywood does and says about the many, many failures of marriage, but the real truth is that the greater majority of those who get married, stay married. The count is somewhat skewed, because so many of those who get divorced are on their second, third, fourth or even more marriage, and the count appears to "prove" that neither love nor marriage lasts very long. In reality, if you really do love your partner, and they really do love you, the last thing either you or they will want to happen is a split that will tear you both apart forever, not to mention any children. So the most important thing you need to learn is how to communicate with your boyfriend, lover, or fiance, or husband. Because if you both

why do some dogs eat their poop

Veterinarians commonly deal with owner complaints that their dog eats its own or another animal s feces or poop. Although there is much speculation why dogs indulge in this behavior, we still don t know exactly why some dogs have this disgusting habit. Many Animals, and Humans, Eat Feces (cop-row-fage-ee-uh) is a Greek word meaning feces eating and is used to describe this behavior. We all know of feces eating insects, but many more animals are in this group. Rations on pig farms used to be formulated to account for a certain percentage of coprophagia.
