SORU
Even the most effective medicines are unacceptable due to side-effects and risks. In the early experimental testing (18) “phase”, certain questions are continuously asked. Does the substance have short or long term side-effects? Could it cause cell (19) “proliferation”? Can it cause deformation? Might it damage the genetic structure?
We therefore (20) “devote” great amount of money and a vast deal of time to produce a new effective medicine. It may take several years, but however long it takes, we believe it is time spent well. Because only a safe and effective medicine is a good medicine.

“Whatever I do you can do better.” This is the common belief of people with an lowliness complex. The term ‘complex’ is not a modern; complexes existed before psychologists. Who has not got an weakness complex? Of course the ones who find themselves greater than others. They are few in number. Their common characteristics are being lively, leading and (24) “aggressive”. They rule the world. They are better than others at everything. We eat too much, sleep too much, (25) “blush” too much. They don’t.
Where does the lowliness complex begin? In the family environment. Our brothers and sisters are so much better than us. They know how to walk properly, how to behave and so on. Babies, the little (26) “tyrants”, rule the world and make us feel small.

The existence of so many varied conceptions of the origin of psychology is no hesitation related to the many aspects of psychological work. The psychiatrist dealing with ‘mental’ breakdown, the educator (33) “modeling” human development, the occupational analyst advising on the choice of jobs, the social scientist studying the prevention of crime, the staff manager (34) “smoothing” human relations in business, the industrial psychologist streamlining industrial processes to ensemble the nature of human capacities: all these are concerned with psychology.
