What is the link between technical analysis and psychology?

Answer by Dave Hughe:

The whole idea of technical analysis was based on the premise that most of the time people would respond in the same way to similar situations. And that these similarities of responses are reflected in patterns on charts.

Whether this is true or not is a matter of opinion. But some chart patterns and other forms of technical analysis repeat themselves way too often for simple coincidences.
