50 Great Myths of Popular Psychology uses popular myths as a vehicle for helping students and laypersons to distinguish science from pseudoscience.

  • Uses common myths as a vehicle for exploring how to distinguish factual from fictional claims in popular psychology

  • Explores topics that readers will relate to, but often misunderstand, such as “opposites attract,”  “people use only 10% of their brains,” and handwriting reveals your personality

  • Provides a “mythbusting kit” for evaluating folk psychology claims in everyday life

  • Teaches essential critical thinking skills through detailed discussions of each myth

  • Includes over 200 additional psychological myths for readers to explore

    Contains an Appendix of useful Web Sites for examining psychological myths

  • Features a postscript of remarkable psychological findings that sound like myths but that are true

  • Engaging and accessible writing style that appeals to students and lay readers alike

Keywords: Pop psychology, psychobabble , psykologia, uskomukset, ihminen, käyttäytyminen
