A Head Start on Psychology

  • If you are planning to study psychology in college, I encourage you to take the multiple-choice psychology quizzes, each of which deals with a single chapter of study in the field of psychology. Taking the quizzes will greatly enhance your learning and understanding of each particular chapter.
  • If you are already in college, the quizzes will serve as a great study guide for you!
  • Homeschoolers, high school students, trivia buffs and college students - good luck on this particular chapter of psychology which deals with motivations and emotions.
  • The terms that will be important in the study of motivations and emotions are listed below. You are encouraged to look up each and become familiar with the terms, as you WILL see them again in psychology classes.
