It is by no means an easy job although many people look at it as one. Psychologists
are able to treat, diagnose, and study patients. They do these things to help
people and make their lives more enjoyable. Before this class when someone
would talk about a psychologist I would think of a person lying on a couch
telling some older man about their life problems. Which is partly true although
there is a lot more to the profession. Just like other professions psychology
has areas you can specialize in for instance clinical psychologist, sports
psychologist, and forensic psychologist. Everything that psychologists do in
their line of work is worth it and needed it helps a lot of people who most
likely would not receive the help that they truly need without the help of a
psychologist.

            The mind is said to be a control
system between the environment and the spirit of a human being. It is used to
solve everyday problems, hold memories, and survival skills. The website called
Scientology claims there is two parts of the mind the analytical part and the
reactive part. Analytical part of the mind is concentration people have that
makes them focus on what is happening around them. The reactive part is the
part of the mind that actually says “hey do this” or “do that” (Church of Scientology International).  The mind is said to be located in the brain in
many cases, Liah Greenfeld, from Psychology Today would argue that it is
supported by the brain, but not confined to that location. She claims it to be
symbolic stimuli that originate from the cultural environment. It is more of an
individual aspect than something that is anatomically in a certain location (Dr.

Liah Greenfeld).  I honestly did not find
that many places that actually talked about the mind and where it is located. I
believe this is partially due to the fact that most people just assume it is
attached to our brains. Which is what I thought before reading some of these
articles. Saying things like our mind is attached to our emotions and formed by
our culture. I most definitely think it is something that we all should be
aware of. Now that I think about it I see how it does not really have an
anatomical location in the body.
