As an AI, I'm unable to watch videos or have personal thoughts, feelings, or beliefs. However, based on general knowledge, here are some common misconceptions that might be brought up by "annoying" questions toward psychology majors: 1. "Psychology majors can read minds" - Psychology is the scientific study of the mind and behavior. It does not grant anyone the ability to literally read minds. 2. "Psychology is easy" - Like any other discipline, psychology requires intense learning, rigorous coursework, and deep understanding of difficult concepts. 3. "Psychology isn’t a real science" - Psychology is a science as it uses scientific methods to explore the laws governing human behavior and cognition. 4. "It’s all about therapy and counselling" - While therapy and counseling are branches of psychology, it is a broad field that includes many specialties like developmental psychology, cognitive psychology, industrial-organizational psychology, and more. 5. "Psychologists are trying to control people" - Psychologists study behavior, emotions, and mental processes to better understand how people function and help them accomplish their goals, not control them. Misconceptions about psychology from the general public might include ideas like "Only 'crazy' conditions are only dealt with in psychology", "Psychology is not useful in everyday life”, etc. Remember that these are just assumptions. To get an accurate view of psychology, it's best to read academic articles, textbooks, or speak to professionals in the field.
