Understanding of psychology helps to control our stress by meditation. It also helps in better interpersonal relations and controlling ones anger which makes ours life peaceful with strong bonds of interpersonal relationship. Sir it is said that although intelligence quotient( I.Q.) helps one get selected for job, its emotional quotient(E.Q.) that decides the success in workplace and life.

Q5) whether psychology has helped you anyway in administration?
Sir principles of organizational psychology help in gaining leadership skills and ability to manage staff in office by understanding there needs and nurturing personal relationship. Sir when I was Tehsildar I faced few morchas outside my office of around 200 people. In such morchas mob is charged against authorities, so I use to immediately give a patient hearing to the leaders of mob. This often dissipated the tension between mob and authorities and vent off there anger without creating major law and order problem. Thus insight into mob psychology helps us in maintaining law and order.
