Select a topic for an essay (if it is not given in advance). It is best to choose one that you like, or with which you are already familiar. To reason about some phenomenon, it is necessary to have a certain amount of knowledge.
Think about the content and structure of your future essay. Make a plan on the principle: introduction, main part, conclusion. An essay is a personal reasoning, and although the form is free - it is better to bend a certain logic to the reader (the teacher, the subscriber blog, a member of the admissions Committee) - not lost in your reasoning.
In the first paragraph needs to captivate the reader with your topic. Start the introduction with a description of the unusual event or fact that is associated with psychology. History can refer specifically to your topic or be a story that inspired you to take up the reasoning described in the essay. The main part must use different arguments to reveal directly the subject. In conclusion, summarize the arguments and conclusions may offer a solution to the problem.
Use different expressive means: metaphors, allegories, quotes, images and comparisons. Such techniques will make your text more interesting and varied. Try to avoid hard-constructed sentences. Stick to the rules: one sentence, one thought. In the text it is possible to argue with the various authors and points of view, if appropriate.
