How does learning influence behaviour
Tumpa Reply
our choice of study molds us and encourages us to practice what we learn. social structure also changes behavior based on the environment and peers. how we learn can be experimental as not everyone lesrns the same. some are more of a hands-on absorber, whereas others may learn better from listening
A confidence from personal knowledge. Not from having been taugbt. knowledge that you learned what was taught.
life is choice, be ready for the best and be prepare for what yet to come in your way(Destiny)

Satyendra Reply
Immanuel Kant: Critique of Pure Reason.
id say freud but wundt continued his work. let's face it without freud there wouldn't be a psychology practices
Freud is considered as the father of Psychoanalysis not psychology
technically Freud would be the father of psychology because he discovered the id ego and super ego
Its kind of a loaded question. There are many early greats in psychology each having their own theories and views. I think it is more of a collective of ideals that make up our current view and understanding of psychology.
