The goal of psychology is to understand the processes involved in thoughts, actions, feelings, and experiences. To explain these processes psychologists develop theories, which guide hypotheses that are tested scientifically through qualitative and quantitative research methods. This scientific approach is applied by psychologists to the study of humans and other animals. The results of psychological research benefit professionals from many fields and can be important in shaping, for example, clinical and educational practices and social policies.
