This proclamation is worth repeating.
The missing theory in Psychology is the core theory of Humanology®.
How we do everything is dependent on our understanding of human nature. It affects the way we approach problems, teach, manage, coach, motivate, advertise, sell, raise children, run a business, fashion public policy, construct social programs, and so on.
Yet what do we really know about human nature? To illustrate, can you answer any of the following basic questions?
Basic Questions about Human Nature
What is the motivation behind human decisions and behavior?
Are human beings motivated primarily to avoid pain or seek pleasure — or is it to compete for dominance, or territory, or sex or some other goal?
What makes human beings intrinsically different from all other species?
Do the rules of nature apply to human beings just as they do the animals or have we transcended them in some way?
If human beings have transcended the rules of nature, what rules of nature have we transcended?
What are emotions? Why do we have them?
How exactly do emotions work?
How powerful are emotions? Are we able to control them? If so, how?
Are emotions exclusive to human beings?
Why do individuals respond differently to the same stimuli and circumstances?
Being able to answer these basic questions is essential if we hope to be successful consistently in anything we do. Yet the answers remain elusive because a central theory that explains human nature is missing from Psychology.
