Answer by alxw
I would say the best benefit would be to better understand if you know somebody with a psychological disorder (specifically a loved one) and it would also help to understand our prehistoric ancestors and why we act the way that we do and also to to feel more compassion for everyone (to put yourself in somebody elses shoes) hope this helps

    A basic understanding of psychology has helped me understand myself better and, therefore, to be more effective in my interpersonal relationships, employment, hobbies, etc. This has spilled over into a better understanding of the attitudes and behaviors of everyone else in my life–my spouse, my kids, my boss, the cashier at Wal-Mart. Basic psychology/personality knowledge helps me everyday to be more effective and more at peace.
