On Popularity of Psychology

Many of the basic terms used in psychology like reward, punishment, needs, response, ego, emotion, learning, motive are so common that we hardly give them the weight of scientific terms. Thus a huge portion of psychology remains hidden and unappreciated by a casual reader.

On the other hand such terms as Oedipus Complex, E.S.P, Psychopath, Borderline, Obsessive Compulsive are more popular and people understand these terms better as they find them interesting and scientific.
