Naturalist

Not surprisingly, some aspect of the natural sciences will run through the Naturalists interests - from ecological awareness to nutrition and health. People with an interest in horticulture, land usage and farming (including fish) are Naturalists.

Some Naturalists focus on animals rather than plants, and may enjoy working with, training, caring for, or simply herding them. Other Naturalists will prefer working with the end result of nature's produce - the food produced from plants and animals. Naturalists like solving problems with solutions that show some sensitivity to the environmental impact of what they do. They like to see practical results, and prefer action to talking and discussing.

Summary... header image

Psychology spans virtually all aspects of human life and allows us seek answers to questions such as:

  • What effects do different drugs have on behaviour?
  • How do children develop a sense of self and relationships with others?
  • What effect does our mood have on our ability to remember information?
  • How can we understand mental disorders and help people cope with their illnesses?
  • When and why do people and animals help others in need?
  • What are the roots of prejudice and discrimination and what can be done to resolve intergroup conflict?

By defining and investigating these and other questions, psychologists aim to provide practical solutions to the many personal and social challenges that people face in their everyday live
