      I think people are endlessly interesting. I liked the breadth of the subject, which covered right from some fairly biological things like brain anatomy, through understanding statistics – which is useful all the time, even reading big claims in newspapers – to really social things like how people act in crowds and how people’s social backgrounds can influence their health behaviours. And I liked how there were very few definite yes or no answers – lots of things are still open to discussion.

      I didn’t study psychology but it is a fascinating subject.
