The major perspectives represent fundamental assumptions that underlie the research questions and methods that are used in order to answer the questions of psychology. Most all perspectives define psychology as the discipline interested in studying human behavior and mental processes, but that covers a lot of ground and the causes of behavior and mental processes are not always clear. ("Major Perspectives in Psychology", 2011). Psychodynamic Perspective:
Abraham Maslow believe that people have certain needs they must meet in a technique way, from highest to lowest in self-actualization (Cervone & Pervin, 2010). According to Maslow the needs of safety, love, belonging, and achievement must come into focus for humans. Humanistic theory focues on the individual and suggest that they are in control of his or her state of mind.

Horace Mann – Argumentative Essay "A human being is not attaining his full heights until he is educated" - Horace Mann. Man explains the importance of education and the effect it has on our lives. He expresses his thoughts on the personal growth of humans as intellectual beings, and how being educated helps to reach the pinnacle point of our species.

However, to achieve such success in life is only a rudimentary matter.
Watson argued that results based on anything other than visual observation could not possibly be accurate, and therefore could not be replicated in the future (Goodwin, 2007). He argued that the idea of perception was purely subjective, and only his brand of observable data could be relied on for future reference. Watson was a man of unshakable conviction. In addition, some of his experiments were looked upon unfavorably; but his brand of behaviorism was one that helped build a strong foundation for behavioral psychology. According to Watson, no research could be considered valid if the introspective method of validating behavior was used.

The first stage is the pre-conventional stage: Children unquestionably obey rules set for them and then move into a flexibility of the rules based on individual influence. The second stage is the conventional stage: Morality begins to move into a belief of doing what is best for the family and those close to them. Then, morality develops into what is best for society and the common good. The last stage is the post-conventional stage: This stage is very similar to the one before except that besides being for the common good, morality is based on what is best for the individual despite current laws and rules. The last level moves the belief that laws and rules are only acceptable if they are just.
The MBTI introverted personality type says that introvert type does not get energy from outside. It means an introverted person develops good energy from themselves. Nowadays, many people wish to become a good leader, but many have the preconception that an extroverted personality is required to become good leaders. Moreover they believe introverts have disadvantages in our social activities. However, I believe this misconception distorts the truth because an introverted personality actually qualifies for leadership in our current society.
