Psychologists have set the standard for the methodology and scientific study of behaviors and mental processes. By making the empirical approach the standard for all psychological research, psychologists have been able to conduct studies that have changed the way we think. Giving you a more complete explanation of what we mean by the science of psychology will occupy much of the rest of the chapter. For the moment, we want to focus on a point that is only implied in our definition of psychology: the notion that psychology is not mere speculation about human nature, nor is it a body of folk wisdom about people that "everybody knows" to be true. Throughout this book you will find many examples of such "commonsense" ideas that psychological science has shown to be false.
