This general wish has to be narrowed down so that I am able to focus within psychology studies on my particular strengths and interests. It is also necessary that I understand the level to which I need to qualify myself through study in order to do what I would like to do in a future career.
It is important to me now to be able to manage my time and to balance all the aspects of my life. The way I will be able to do this is to ensure I take care of myself physically, mentally and emotionally in times of stress. I want to ensure that my writing skills improve, so that I can clearly communicate the knowledge I am gaining, and the future research findings and results I hope to publish in this field. Another immediate goal is to learn as much as possible from my experiences here. I want to immerse myself fully in my studies, learning as much as I can.
This will be possible only if I concentrate on building good communication between my peers and myself, as well as between my instructors and myself. Further, I want to engage fully with the writings and work of other people in the field of psychology. If I synthesize and understand as much of the work in the field as possible, on an ongoing basis, I will maintain current knowledge, continue to find new areas of interest, and gain skills throughout my studies and career. The research and findings of academics in the field of psychology, especially new findings and theories, are very interesting to me, and I would like to keep improving my ability to understand and assimilate such research, and its results. It is also important to me that I learn to research well – both the theory of how to research, and the skills and methods of research.
One of my definite interests is Statistics, and I aim to increase my knowledge and understanding of Multivariate statistical methods as they are used in psychology.
