How Psychology connects to our everyday day

Human Behavior Based on Psychological Testing

Pyscological tests are used to assess a persons' interest, attitudes, and pyschological problems. Testing doesn't determine human behavior. It is important to keep in mind what the test is measuring. The fairness and usefulness of the test depend on reliability, validity, and standardazation.
