Positive Psychology: the positive pursuit of optimal human functioning

Has scientific psychology finally caught up?

When I was studying psychology, I ran into what I felt to be a brick wall. It was a brick wall of people at the largest research-based University in the country focusing upon things that weren’t important – at least weren’t important to me.

I am interested in psychology because I want to study what makes people outstanding – what makes people great. I’ve been fascinated by the difference between the good and the great and the freaks who change the world since I first heard about it – thanks to reading the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People in 1994 – and had hoped that psychology would give me an insight into the field.

Apparently, now they are… http://www.apa.org/apags/profdev/pospsyc.html

And it’s about time!!!
