There are a number of important theories in psychology. These theories
may provide ideas about emotions, thinking, motivation, or behavior.
Theories are more general than hypotheses. Theories may involve a set
of ideas, and they may involve the integration of more specific ideas and
findings. They may help to make sense of research findings. They may be
in the form a mediational model that illustrates how certain variables may
influence other variables.
