Sometimes you can get annoyed with a Psychology major. Probably because all you hear them say is, “How does that make you feel,” or, “Please, tell me more,” as sarcastically as possible because they don’t have a degree yet. Yes the key word is, “yet.” Being a Psych major myself, here are some reasons I feel you too, can befriend a Psychology major.
Class wise, they can help!
Is this your first time taking a Psych course outside your major? NO PROBLEM! They had to take these classes and remember EVERYTHING! Textbook needed? They can let you borrow theirs because they have to keep them forever!
Most of their views are important.
Their views outside the Psych classes in particular can be valued for most items you hear on the news or read in the newspaper. If you do read a blog based on a psychological view of different things using their theories they learned in classes they took to connect to the real world, you can really tell they take their major seriously!
They read you like a book.
You may have a problem you really don’t want to tell them, but right away they know something is up and that you’re really not okay! Even the simplest of tone of voice and body language can help them read you like a book.
They are LITERALLY there for you!
Not because they are the Psych major they are, but it’s because they are your friend! Some friends will just push you off the wagon and not want to listen to you vent. That’s the whole reason they went into Psychology, to hear others vent!
Psych majors aren’t just all about the theories, they are all about helping others. No matter what specific part of Psychology they want to go into, they will always want to help their friend. If you’re already friends with a Psychology major, then do thank them dearly. If not, then you are completely missing out.
