Myths and Realities: Behavioral Science


This issue is the first in a series of periodic articles on the yearlong theme of Myths and Realities. This week’s focus is on myths in psychology and myths on the nature of the brain  key topics in the core discipline of Behavioral Science.

  • For those with a more scholarly bent read “From Mythology to Psychology” from the European Journal of Psychology, which discusses myth as trust, myth as evidence, and myth as story.
  • From Psychology TodayThe Top 10 Psychology Myths. If you thought “denial” was bad, see Myth 8, “Denial is a bad way to cope with stress.”
