Human behavior is the sum of all the things we do, think, and feel. It is the result of our physiology, psychology, and sociocultural influences.
There are four types of human behavior:
In psychology, physiology refers to the study of the human body and how it functions. This includes the nervous system, the endocrine system, and the cardiovascular system. Physiological behavior is the study of how these systems work together to produce human behavior.
Psychological behavior is the study of the mind and how it affects human behavior. This includes studies of perception, cognition, emotion, and motivation. Psychological behavior is the study of how the mind works and how it influences the way we behave.
Sociological behavior is the study of how humans interact with each other. This includes studies of communication, relationships, and social institutions. Sociological behavior is the study of how we interact with each other and how these interactions shape our behavior.
Anthropological behavior is the study of human behavior in its cultural and social context. This includes studies of language, religion, and customs. Anthropological behavior is the study of how our culture and social environment influence our behavior.
