Psychology aims to explore the human mind, trying to figure out why we are the way we are. There are many branches in psychology, and one of the most interesting ones is quantitative psychology. It is also known as measurement psychology; its practitioners mostly deal with numbers and rules, hoping to understand their meaning in our psyches. Quantitative psychology is a much underrated branch that is appealing to people who like to work with numbers and rules. These are the very people who are math geniuses behind-the-scenes, developing criterion for experiments and research methodology. This ensures that when research is conducted, they are statistically relevant as well as ethical. These psychologists also work on interpreting experiment results mathematically and systematically. The field of quantitative psychology is also the study of methods and techniques that go into the figuring out human attributes, as well as the mathematical modeling and statistics of psychological processes. These psychologists also design research studies that are carried out in universities and institutions around the world. Finally, they also analyze the psychological data from a very technical standpoint, ensuring its validity. It is very important and runs throughout all other aspects of psychology, be they science, public interest, practice, or education. Without the help of quantitative psychology, psychiatrists and psychologists around the world would not know how to conduct their researches, or even figure out how to deduce the data they have found. It is very essential in our quest to better understand the world around us. Some of the work involved in quantitative psychology includes research and development in a number of areas. They are measurement, statistical analysis and research design. It also involves statistical and mathematical modeling of psychological processes. These psychologists develop new methodologies, as well as evaluate existing ones to examine psyche and behavior in controlled experiments. Their work supports all the substantive research in the various areas of psychology. Quantitative psychology is offered as a major in most psychology schools around the world. It is appealing to those who like working with numbers and are good at math. Those who wish to pursue this branch in their graduate studies will find it very easy to secure funding for research and studies. Not many people follow this field due to the fact that is considered to be ‘dry’ compared to other areas of psychology. There are doctoral programs available for prospective students as well. As it stands, quantitative psychology deals with the mathematical and statistical analysis of psychological data, as well as researching and coming up with various methodologies. It appeals to those who like reading up on case studies and experiments, along with numbers and rules.
