Hello – my name is Derrick Farnell and this site is a place for me to publish my writings.

I'm mainly interested in the psychology of belief, and I write an ongoing series of articles on this topic called How Belief Works.

There are also some articles on other topics.

I studied psychology at St. Andrews University, in Scotland, and currently work as a freelance copywriter. I live in Edinburgh.

I've three main passions: psychology, writing, and going on outdoor adventures. I also love science in general, and technology. And dogs.

My email address is derrick.farnell@gmail.com.
