  • Observation is the most important aspect of psychological research.
  • Operationalism means to define our variables in the manner in which we are going to measure them.
  • Correlation measures degree of relationship between variables and ranges from -1 to +1. Correlation does NOT imply causation.
  • Experimental, correlational, & descriptive methods all have strengths & weaknesses in describing human behavior.
  • Descriptive statistics describe the data gathered in research, while inferential statistics allow us to draw conclusions about how this data can be generalized to a larger population.
  • Following ethical principles is vitally important in any kind of psychological research.

Give Paul Bloom one hour, and he'll teach you "the psychology of everything," illustrating some of the most fundamental elements of human nature through case studies about compassion, racism, and sex. He discusses some of the biggest questions in the nature versus nurture debate, including "Are we hard-wired to care about others?" Bloom points out why stereotyping can be both detrimental and beneficial, and he even explains what the porn preference of monkeys tells us about our own sexual choosiness, or lack thereof. After the hour is up you'll understand why Bloom calls psychology, because of its cross-disciplinary nature, "the perfect liberal arts major."
