Telepathy test: which word did I write?

I recently wrote and circled one of the seven words: "human", "progress", "military", "religion", "down", "psychology", and "up" on my paper.

I ask you to write it here (if you think you might know it).

Thank you for participating.
For some reason, I thought of the word "smart" before opening the thread (i.e., just after reading the thread title). I'll go with "human" from the listed choices.
Thank you for your answers Ian Gordon, Brian_the_bard, and Silence. Unfortunately, the correct answer was neither "progress", nor "down", nor "human", but "psychology".
