Photoshop - Pen tool makes inverse selections...?

General Photoshop Board - www.photoshopgurus.com
Whenever I use the pen tool to make a selection, the selected area is the inverse of the area enclosed by my path (i.e. I make a circle, the area outside the circle is selected). I'm finding this a bit of an annoyance because I nearly always forget to invert the selection before applying my mask or effect.

It does seem counter intuitive though and I'm wondering if it's normal or if there's something I've done to cause PS (CS5) to default to inverse selections from paths? If it is normal, can anyone explain the rationale behind it?

Thanks.
