Psychology is (in part) the science of the human personality
(predicting human behavior based on a stimulus).  The personality is a
variable thing; there are no laws which can apply universally to it,
as people's responses are manipulated by a wide array of inputs
stemming from their past experiences and outcomes from them.  We are
not atoms, or physical properties, but an extremely complex
composition of them.  The best you can do is produce a statistical
model; but that too is science, and this is also the science of
marketing.  Marketing is, in essence, a branch of sociology, with
profit as the end goal of its application.
