    Led Zepplin would not have been Led Zepplin without Jimmy Page ! Let me give you a quick Psy 101 overview: Psychology is defined as: The science (study) of human behavior and cognitive (thinking) processes. Its goals are to: Describe, understand and predict human behaviors and cognitive processes. It goes further to say that the overall goal then is to influence or modify human behaviors and/or cognitive processes. Considering that we are the only living spieces that has self awareness (consciousness), and truly "thinks" it is simple logic to draw the conclusion that we study ourselves to better understand ourselves. This gives us the ability and knowledge to heal emotional pain, modify behaviors that lead to emotional pain and to grow/improve as a spieces. Psychology, in essence is the study of living. To say it is pointless is to say that life is pointless. Which I would hope you agree is an irrational statement. The point of living is to expereince life (enjoy experiences and cope with challenges), relate with other humans, grow as an individual (both in spirit and knowledge), and to contribute to the society/group we are a part of (human beings) as well as steward all other living things and our enviornment. To "know" the how and what of human expereince is part of the expereince itself. It wouldn't matter if we ever made "psychology" into a science or not. As conscious beings, the questions are just part of being alive. Whether your sister "believes" in psychology or not, she has a psychology, as she is human and alive. As you continue to learn about psychology it will become more clear as to why it exists. Heck, the fact that you even consider this philosophical point is psychology. I would encourage you to never give up the drive to know yourself and others better. Hope this helps

    some philosophers call psychology the study of soul, because it makes you understand what did persons really are
