People have some common characteristics regarding their psychology. This is made possible by the human anatomy that is common to all. Science research is vital in solving psychological problems. Detailed analysis of the data and variables will provide a lot of information. Many psychological facts were discovered by experiments on speculations and closely related sources of information. Human culture is a fundamental component when studying psychology. However, it is important to consider all other human aspects (Slife, 61). Psychological studies in America use general population especially when they are considering fundamental processes. Development of psychology will be caused by running tests and experiments on theories. Findings based on fundamentals of human beings; result in having an effect on what is actually happening to people globally. Research is carried out from different parts of the world and not just a narrow profile. Therefore, the conclusions made are real (Slife, 63).
Psychology should reflect all aspects of human race not just a few of them. There will be better answers if psychology gets a general focus. Findings of psychology should not be generalized since they might turn out to be inaccurate. Only a part of a population is used in carrying out psychological tests and experiments. Scientific research in psychology cannot be limited in testing theories. It should cover other promising areas (Slife, 64). Most psychologists carry out their research with Americans and conclude their findings are a global principle. Many questions of psychology cannot be answered by just indoor experiments and research. All possible means of research should be applied to this exercise. Human beings are different in the way they respond or carry out their activities. This is why it is important for psychologists to be specific on their findings and conclusions. Psychological research should include animals to broaden the understanding of this discipline (Slife, 65).
