    Neither one is really stronger, it depends on what you want to do. Psychology is a pretty marketable major and can lead into lots of different job fields. Philosophy leads basically into law, or into academia. However, philosophy teaches you how to think critically and logically, a skill that can be applied in any job. If you go into philosophy, the trick is being able to sell your major. Also, if you ever want to go for an advanced degree in philosophy, be aware that the job market for philosophy professors is pretty dismal. There are way more qualified candidates then there are jobs.

    I think it depends upon the person. Whether he or she is a psychologist or a philosopher depends upon how he/she identifies him/herself. (Some people like to identify themselves as more of a philosopher than a psychologist, and vice versa.)

    I like reading psychology and philosophy books and articles just the same. And I don't even know if I'm already thinking like a philosopher or a psychologist! I guess all forms of knowledge and disciplines are connected with one another. Perhaps that is what becoming a Renaissance man/woman is all about.

    I made a hub about the Subject Matter of Psychology and its History. It's quite short, and gives an overview of how Philosophy and the Natural Sciences shaped the field. If you want, you can have a read on it. smile

    I mean, one being lost in the vicious circles of Logic, and the cobwebs of Metaphysics, and the other, in a defining, within grammar, and Semantics ... Defines, the State of a race, to  a Proper Understanding of the Reality

    Then, the Philosopher, is not going anywhere, because, he is stuck in vicious Circles of cognitions, and the Psychologist is Bogged in the mire of a pragmatic defining... whether ... the human Brain is the human Mind, or the human Mind is the human Brain ...

    Then, both of them are not going anywhere ...
