Some Misconceptions about Psychology Among Chinese Health Sciences Students in Hong Kong
David W. CHAN（陳維鄂）
Misconceptions about psychology were assessed in 161 Chinese undergraduate health sciences students using 20 common beliefs of students in introductory psychology courses in North America. The results indicated that common misconceptions among Chinese students were related to memory and motivation, and were not a result of disinterest or apathy in acquiring psychological knowledge for application to health practice. Implications for the teaching of introductory psychology to students with a view for applied use of psychology were discussed.
