If you do not have enough knowledge to write an essay – use the main scientific works on your topic, watch documentaries. To simplify information retrieval, consult your supervisor.
- Choose a topic for the essay (if you did not give it in advance). It is best to choose one that you like, or with which you are already familiar. To talk about a phenomenon, you must have a certain stock of knowledge.
- Consider the content and structure of your future essay. Make a plan on the principle: introduction, main part, conclusion. An essay is a personal argument, and although the form is free — it is better to subordinate everything to a certain logic so that the reader (teacher, blog subscriber, member of the admission commission) does not get lost in your conclusions.
- In the first paragraph, you need to captivate the reader with your topic. Begin the introduction with a description of an unusual case or fact related to psychology. The story may relate specifically to your topic or be a story that inspired you to the reasoning described in the essay. The main part must, through various arguments, directly disclose the topic. In conclusion, summarize the reasoning with conclusions and, possibly, suggest your own solution to the problem.
- Use different expressive means: metaphors, allegories, quotes, images and comparisons. Such techniques will make your text more interesting and diverse. Try to avoid complexly constructed sentences. Stick to the rule: one sentence – one thought. The text can be controversial with various authors and points of view, if appropriate.
