psychology +‎ -ize

Verb[edit]

psychologize (third-person singular simple present psychologizes, present participle psychologizing, simple past and past participle psychologized)

  1. To interpret or analyze in psychological terms
    • 1988 January 8, Jonathan Rosenbaum, “10 From '87”:
      The absence of psychologizing, as in Jon Jost's thematically similar and equally haunting Last Chants for a Slow Dance (1977), liberates the imagination in relation to Benning's beautifully composed images, and this respect for the viewer's intelligence pays off in highly charged dividends.
