Psychology research

Many people are fascinated by human behavior. Why do we act the way we do? How is our behavior influenced? To measure human behavior, all kinds of research instruments are at our disposal. We can use them for qualitative and quantitative research. An important part of studying human behavior is performing observations, for example using video recordings, physiological measurements, and facial expression analysis.

Blog post: How to study human behavior

Everyone is unique; everyone behaves differently. What is more fun than sitting somewhere - on a park bench, at the beach, or on a terrace, and watch people go by? Postures, movements, nonverbal and verbal behavior - all can be observed.

In this blog post, we describe several behavioral theories, as well as different ways to measure human behavior. Also, we discuss research fields in which human behavior plays a central role.
