Inseeking these services, the individuals involved will need to examinetheir client by asking some questions or trying to understand whethertheir client require their services. A student that has gainedpsychology knowledge will not need to ask why he/she is beinginterrogated by these individuals since he/she will have gained theunderstanding that it is important for their field in order to makethe right judgment. Therefore, it will be necessary for students tolearn the subject in order to understand the real life application ofthe subject.

Besides,psychology is important because it improves employability. Psychologyfocuses on human behavior, which is a critical aspect when seekingemployment.

In addition, students should choose psychology subjectbecause it will teach them to think critically (Rathus,2007). Most of the psychological content and techniques taught in thesubject focus on thinking critically.

These skills are alsovital in learning other subjects therefore, psychology should be thelanguage to choose.
