Human Behaviour

By Prof. Naveen Kashyap   |   IIT Guwahati
Learners enrolled: 4823
We as intelligent beings have always wondered why we do what we do. The most interesting knowledge that humans beings would kill to possess would be the knowledge to control other people. The basic premise of being human is individual difference (we are all different). One science that helps people in understanding other people and scientifically predicting their actions is the science of psychology. In the present course, I will make an attempt to simplify the science of human behavior.
