The subject matter of psychology can be illustrated by addressing the questions, ‘who am I?’, ‘what do I spend my time doing?’ and ‘reflecting on my life, where have I come from and where am I going?’. I am a human being and also more generally an animal. I am a biological entity and also a psychological entity. I have an identity and a personality. I am an individual and also a member of a social system. I am similar to other human beings but also different. In some respects I am normal and in other respects abnormal.
