Psychology is relevant to all walks of life. Everyone learns
some psychology, if not in school, through one’s own experience and uses it
without realizing it consciously. Prominent applications in psychology include
areas of human development and adjustment, development of skills, communication,
education, social change, stress etc. As mentioned earlier, psychology extends
to all areas of human existence.
While imparting knowledge of the above to a student of Senior
