Abstract

Psychology is regarded as the scientific study of human behaviour and experience. It attempts to make generalisations about how people behave, what influences that behaviour, and how people make sense of their experience.

There is considerable diversity in human behaviour and experience, so is this diversity taken into account when studies are designed and conducted?
