Our first chapter will give you information about the psychological side of behavior.
The first paragraph of this chapter, called Theory of behavior, consists of sub paragraphs that tell you something about the different theories developed by psychologists like Freud, Erikson and Maslow. There are many psychologists, so it is almost impossible to tell something about all of them. We have selected some psychologists with divergent views about how to explain human behavior.
The second paragraph, Basic drives and motives, tells you something about why we react in a certain way in general. We explain some existing theories and give you some examples in which we take a look at the theories in practice.
The third paragraph, called Social influences, explains how different environments can influence behavior. Your friends can influence you consciously but also unconsciously. Somehow you try to imitate them. Television programs can also influence your behavior. In this paragraph we will mainly focus on the aspect of violence on television and how this influences behavior.
The last paragraph, called Emotions, tells you something about our feelings or emotions. There are some important theories in explaining emotions, which we will explain here. We will also give ways of expressing emotions.
