Answer
1. Psychology is the scientific study of mental processes and behavior. Psychology can be compared to a human being as we are very complex living machines and are difficult to understand fully.

2. A psychologist is someone who has gone to school for at least 6-10 years to obtain their PH D in Psychology and then they must pass the state exam to get their license.

3. My journey started out as a means to help others with substance abuse problems. I went to school to be a counselor. Then I decided I was better suited to teach.

4. Currently I am writing a book and looking to pursue my PH D in Psychology.

5. The importance of psychology to all life is, the better we are able to understand how someone or something thinks or reacts, we are better able to help them when they are ill or have a disease.
