I distinguish between freudianism, psychologism, therapy, incentives/biases/limits/logic, neurochemistry, and cognitive science.

When a person says “psychology” I usually have to deduce which of those they’re referring to.

In my understanding psychology is used to refer to each of those. However, the first two are pseudosciences, therapy/self/help is something else, and the rest are sciences.

Usually I am criticizing the use of the first two or the conflation of the first two with others.
