    Psychology Classics

    This section of the newsletter introduces you to a full text psychology classic that you can read courtesy of the All About Psychology website initiative to make important, insightful and engaging public domain works in psychology freely available.

    How much energy do you use when you think? At what time of day is your mental performance best? Does talking to yourself help your thinking? Are your thoughts influenced by body position? If you have an exam to take, or some problems to solve, how can you let your mind work, without your realizing it, to find the answers?

    Great article from 1958 by Lawrence Galton which tackles these and other questions on how the mind works.

    You can read this psychology classic via the following link by How Your Mind Works

    You can access and download all the classic psychology publications in this series via my Scribd account.
