Peculiarities of scientific and everyday psychology

Scientific psychology is based on empirical scientific facts, that is, facts obtained experimentally. Scientific and psychological facts are characterized by objectivity, i.e., they are independent of the subjective opinion of a scientist. Scientific psychological knowledge is rational and conscious. The use of empirical and logical methods of proving the truth of scientific and psychological knowledge gives them special weight. Methods of science provide greater reliability and evidence to the knowledge gained. In scientific psychology, there are reliable and verifiable ways to measure mental phenomena.

Scientific psychology is distinguished by the generalization of the knowledge gained, since it is aimed at searching for general laws of mental phenomena.

The psychological knowledge gained as a result of practical work experience is generalized and systematized. Another feature of practical psychology is integrity in the description of a person. The concepts of practical psychology are metaphorical, that is, the use of terms that have figurative figurative meaning. In practical psychology, the influence of the personality of a psychologist on the process and results of work is significant. Practical psychologists show a great desire to popularize psychological knowledge.
