Often, psychology is confused to be the ‘study of mind’.
Henceforth, people have confusions regarding the content matter of it.
Psychologists are often considered to be the mind readers, secret predictors and what not.
The most annoying question asked to psychologists- “Please tell or read what am I thinking”.
This is a question which can really irk a psychologist.
Misconceptions about the subject
All this happens because the idea and content of the subject is quite vague.
