Smarter Decision Making through Psychology

Smarter Decision Making through Psychology

Since you started PSY101, Smarter Decisions through Psychology, you have had the opportunity to learn about fascinating topics, including the brain and nervous system, emotions, motivation, and stress management (Strayer University, 1). As you learned the psychological concepts and principles covered in this course, you’ve gained insight into what influences decision making and how you can apply what you’ve learned to make better decisions in your own life and career. Through your study of psychology, you’ve also started honing two essential employability skills:

· Problem solving to identify and frame problems, explore ideas, and create effective, ethical, and evidence-based solutions based on psychological concepts and principles (Strayer University, 1).

· Self and social awareness to monitor one’s own and others’ emotions, to discriminate among them, and to use the information to receive feedback, reflect, and guide one’s thinking. (Strayer University, 1)
