Diversity in the Discipline of Psychology


Psychologists study and apply their knowledge in many diverse ways across the discipline.  This diversity is a strength as it provides a comprehensive understanding of behavior and mental processes at many different levels, in many areas, and from many perspectives.  Some criticize psychology for being too diverse to the extent that it's different areas can not be unified as a coherent whole.  However, this characteristic is not really any different from other sciences, including medicine and physics.
