From the title this seems more of a psychological question than a philosophical one. Note, both philosophy and psychology are pseudoscience. Psychology is a pseudo science of physiology and biology where as philosophy is a pseudoscience of mathematics.
Hmmm. Psychology is a significant subject whose study has been prevented by the struggle (maybe for funding?) to call itself a science, when it is not one. It deals with matters outside the bailiwick of science, covering human feelings, and the like. Stuff that's difficult to quantify and impossible to study via science. Subjective stuff.
