Complete the following in your journal:
  1. Right now, before you read this unit, how would you define psychology? Write down a short (2 or 3 sentences) definition.
  2. What does “everybody know” about psychology? Take the quiz (insert quiz link here), and then think about where you have encountered one of these myths/misconceptions. Have you:
    • Heard someone say it’s true?
    • Have you seen or read about it? Where?
    • Have you believed it yourself, and if so what has lead you to that belief?
