@Gaelle,
1) What is the first word you think when someone says: PSYCHOLOGY ?
Therapy
2) Do you think that psychology is a scientific discipline ?
A big yes.
3) Do you think that we study this subjects in a classical University of Psychology in France ?
What exactly are you asking here? Is the question really "Do you think that we study this subjects..." or "Do you think that we SHOULD study this subjects?"
- Embryology (YES/NO) Yes. "Should" they? Not sure why they would.
- Philosophy (YES/NO) Yes and meh.
- Clinical Psychology (YES/NO) YES and SHOULD.
- Sociology (YES/NO) Yes and shouldn't be necessary as sociology is a hack science ... like communications is a hack degree.
- Statistics (YES/NO) YES and All students of science heavy disciplines should ....

4) Where can work a Psychologist ?
- In Jail (YES/NO) YES
- In a firm (YES/NO) YES, under the guise of corporate psychology and marketing
- In a hospital (YES/NO) Without a doubt, yes.
- In a bank (YES/NO) You can but why would you?!
- In a reality-show (YES/NO) Depends on the nature of the TV series. A rare educational TV series? Yes. If not an educational show? Why waste ones talents?!

5) What is the differences you know between a psychologist and a psychiatrist? The ability to prescribe medicine. Big differences in post graduate degrees and education which include specializations for psychiatrists not available for psychologists.

6) In your opinion, can a psychologist treats this troubles ?
- Hand's paralysis ? (YES/NO) Depends on the cause of the illness, so a maybe is my answer here.
- Phobia (YES/NO) Yes.

7) Can you quote one or two famous psychologist? No. Not without using Google to cheat.

8) Who need to consult a psychologist? Anyone should have access if they feel the need for help with their mental and emotional problems.

9) What kind of objects can we find in a psychology office? Books, lamps, desks, chairs, a clichéd sofa, etc....

Usually these questionnaires are given to fellow students, usually in the psychology field themselves. Most are 18 - 19 years old.

Evolution

2) Do you think that psychology is a scientific discipline ?
Yes and no. There is definitely a lot of good science being done. Analyzing the efficacy of treatments. Human factors.

Yes
- In a bank (YES/NO)
Unlikely (no)
- In a reality-show (YES/NO)
Yes, although it is often ethically questionable

5) What is the differences you know between a psychologist and a psychiatrist ?
A psychiatrist is an MD, who often sees people just long enough to prescribe a particular medicine. A psychologist can work in many roles. Therapist. Consultant. Experimental Psychologist. Etc.

6) In your opinion, can a psychologist treats this troubles ?
- Hand's paralysis ? (YES/NO)
No

Yes

@joijoi,
2) Do you think that psychology is a scientific discipline ?
Quote:

Having had some experience with this realm, Joi, I suppose most shrinks might agree with you. However there's a large camp that won't; while even the psychiatrist himself concedes his calling as somewhat controversial

4) Where can work a Psychologist ?
Quote:
- In a hospital No
Why not


5) What is the differences you know between a psychologist and a psychiatrist ?

Quote:

Not too sure about that

http://www.google.ca/#hl=en&tbo=d&sclient=psy-ab&q=+think+of+psychiatrist+as+scientist&oq=+think+of+psychiatrist+as+scientist&gs_l=hp.12...40506.40506.1.41729.1.1.0.0.0.0.157.157.0j1.1.0.les%3B..0.0...1c.1.2.hp.AE_-16JHv8A&pbx=1&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_qf.&bvm=bv.42261806,d.cGE&fp=e51206c1a8ddcf38&biw=1408&bih=585

Quote:
while psychologists are considered therapists and otherwise non-scientists
Some of us--many perhaps--would maintain you've got that backward. I am wondering for instance what proportion are not even involved in therapy

Not criticizing in any way Joi, you're entitled to your opinion and that's what Gae askes for

8) Who need to consult a psychologist ?
Quote:
People who need help
Good one Joi, you've made my day

On maybe this point alone Saab I'd disagree. Of course I'm no expert but I'd haver a couple such, just to gage any spontaneous reaction

Well put Dad

It's been my experience that the shrink typically belittles conventional meds. Furthermore he will earnestly persuade you to return--and on a regular basis--mark my words

8) Who need to consult a psychologist ?
Quote:
Everyone
You too Dad have made my day--maybe tomorrow too

the reason why I said no personal pictures is that it can happen more or less often, that a client/patient gets jealous of the private life of their psychologist. Somehow they like to be the most important person in the life of their psychologist.
A neutral enviroment is the best for everybody.

Thank you Saab for explaining that. It will be interesting to hear from others more qualified than I

Incidentally, to put somebody's phrase in the box: Just highlight then click on "Quote" in the box above

So I did - thanks to you - then I made your sentence blue and pressed Quote - nothing happened. Just like this .
Quote:

Guess I have to continue just copying.

One minute later. I think I know now what to do.
Quote:

Copied your sentence, put it between the qoute and when you send it it comes into the square-
Let me see if it works.

One minute later - it worked. Good - I feel less stupid now
