Then you'll be interested to know that it's the scientific discipline of Psychology that investigates and attempts to answer these types of questions.
Contemporary psychology is defined as the scientific study of behaviour and mental processes. Behavior is anything an organism does that can be observed and recorded. Mental processes are internal, subjective experiences, and include sensations, perceptions, dreams, thoughts, beliefs, expectations and feelings. The mental processes are inferred from observable behaviour.
Psychological science is a fascinating and useful discipline that has relevance for all students regardless of their chosen field of study.
