  1. Must not.

    You also have sensory organs, their anatomical representatives (eyes, ears, etc.) for the perception of people, as well as thinking. You can't do without psychology alone.

  2. There are many other areas of social and humanitarian knowledge that could also be useful for understanding human behavior. If we are interested in morality, then we should turn to ethics as a branch of philosophy, if something related to power in society, then we should turn to political science, if we want to understand about a person as a member of a social institution, then we need sociology. So you can, of course, but psychology is only one angle.

  3. Do you mean “psychology as a way of perceiving people” – as a perception that is constantly mediated (more or less) by scientific analysis?

    A good psychologist, I think, is not just a “Brain” that constantly analyzes and calculates people, putting them in the framework of one or two or three concepts of different schools of practical psychology.

    That is, so, probably, it is possible, but somehow it is very disabled, morbid.

    I have a fantasy that a good psychologist first of all allows himself to be an imperfect and different person. Even when working with a client, it is true that they are very aware of what is happening, and of course there is a certain professional framework. – But if you are going to communicate with people “professionally” even outside of the working context, this is a good idea… No, that's when you'll definitely go to personal therapy yourself, because that's when you're out of your mind.

  4. Psychology is a dynamically developing form of cognition, located at the intersection of other forms of cognition: from basic science to art. And psychology itself is so diverse and contradictory that the mission of limiting people's perception through psychology is somewhat utopian.
