Okay, this first segment of the blog is going to try to inspire you to continue your learning in psychology and mentalism. I'm sure a lot of you are familiar with the television show 'The Mentalist'. The main character, Patrick Jane works with the Police. The program, like any other crime show, goes over a particular case or series of cases where Jane is able to convict a suspect and solve the mystery. He does this through mentalism. If you ever get a chance to watch this series, I'd highly recommend doing so.
Mentalism can be defined as, "In psychology, mentalism refers to those branches of study that concentrate on mental perception and thought processes, like cognitive psychology". It's an incredibly useful trait whether you work for the Police as an inspector or even if you just have an interest in what's going on around you. If you're interested in learning more about mentalism, amongst other things, please stick around to read a few more posts!
