Quick Intro and How to Follow PsyBlog
1. Very quick intro
Hello, and welcome to PsyBlog. Thanks for dropping by.
This site is all about scientific research into how the mind works. It’s written by a psychologist and author, Jeremy Dean. The aim is to write simply and clearly about psychology so that anyone can understand it.
This is not an academic blog that blinds you with science. Jargon is a no-no, New Age mumbo-jumbo gets two fingers and I get to the point real quick.
I try to dig up fascinating studies that tell us something about what it means to be human.
That’s it. Hope you like it.
2. Follow PsyBlog
I strongly suggest you follow PsyBlog so you get reminders when new articles are posted.
The best way is by a free email. I promise no spam and you can unsubscribe yourself at any time and you’ll never hear another peep.
If you prefer, you can also:
I post links to all the new articles on Twitter, Facebook and Google+. Still, email is the best way to make sure it doesn’t get lost in the mix.
3. Find topics that interest you
Now that the introductions and admin are out of the way, you can get on with exploring the site.
Many of the articles are arranged by themes, often in series. For example, there’s a series on the top brilliant social psychology studies which has proved popular and a section all about cognitive biases and why we make irrational decisions.
All the series are arranged by psychological themes.
Alternatively the archives page has a list of all the articles ever posted in chronological order.
