How I became interested in Psychology

This is a difficult question, but I do remember that the field of psychology felt natural to me starting with my introductory course as an undergraduate. My professor’s enthusiasm about the material was contagious and I was immediately hooked. I found myself wondering what could be more interesting than the study of behavior? That first course was the most influential; it made me interested in taking more psychology courses, and before long I declared it as my major.
