I always wanted to learn psychology. But being a commerce student never got a chance to learn the same. After coming here I came to know we have psychology as a subject. Not to mention, I was happy and excited to finally know something about the subject I always wanted to learn. It’s not that I want to be a psychologist or something…but this term psychology always excites me in a strange way. I was expecting some aged lady to teach us this subject….but to my surprise when I entered the class I saw a young girl…somewhat around 24-25 years of age, standing at the podium. Not believing my eyes I still confirmed from other people …and yes, she was to teach us this subject.
She started off with her introduction and then the class started. She raised some very bold topics in the class , but her confidence and the way she took those topics up….she amazed me by her ability to discuss most complicated or what we say the “BOLD” topics so easily.
But something very strange happened…few things which she said…few questions she asked…few topics she raised….really disturbed me from the core. Talking about dreams…the id, ego and superego….the inner guilt, Oedipus and Electra complex, split personality…all little things which happen inside us all the time…without even our consciousness.
Are we human being really this complex? Can our inner desires be really so weird and bizarre? Do our thought process; the way we are today is because of the things we saw in the first five years of our life? Can those five years really make such a strong impact on our lives?
I don’t know about others, but her lectures are effecting me in a strange of way! Maybe I’ll be able to know myself better after this! Or maybe I'll be lost in her theories of psychology!
