Do you think psychology would be a good career?

Recommended Posts

Psychology is a fascinating subject, and if I go back to school someday, I want to major in psych. I've taken MANY classes, so I know that I like this field. AmazingDM, how can you know that you want to get onto this career path if you've never taken a class on it?? Just wondering..


There are tons of careers out there where you can help others, psychology isn't the only way... :unsure:

Scared of the thought of just having a "job", I really want a career, something I can be good at, be accomplished. I cringe at the thought of moving from one place to another just based on seniority etc.


Anyone have experience with psychology?


I read it before... :unsure:

I took psychology in college. At the time, I just took it because nothing else really appealed to me. I don't remember if I needed it to fulfill an elective course or some requirement though.


After the first year I was going to make it my major, but I kinda got sidetracked and never got back to it.


All my life I've been the "go to guy" when friends had problems. I got the idea that maybe I should just start getting paid for what I've always been doing anyway. The only thing I think I ever accomplished was making them feel better for a little while. I'm not sure if there's any more that a pscychologist can do other than that, the rest is up to the person seeking help.


I just can't help but think about what happens when you're tying your best to be a good psychologist and you ARE good, but it seems like you lose more people than you really ever help. That's gotta suck!


You can be one of the best, but if people you try to treat don't want to help themselves then it can REALLY be the kind of job that takes a serious toll on your own mental health.

    • We've just posted the images from the 2018 SDCC Marvel Sideshow display booth.
    • This puts what I was trying to say, much more eloquently and to the point. 
    • I would take a look at my other post, in this thread... I’ve already tried to turn the focus back into a more positive direction.
    • First thing I am gonna say about this: "Private companies, private rules" There is nothing political about this or first amendment and things of the sort.  Now for the second part os my 2 cents on this: The irony, is that he criticizes Trump and other people that have a different view from him and the mainstream Hollywood, highly progressive, leftist and things of the sort. These people cannot tolerate a different view on any subject, now try to dictate the rules, what can be shown, spoken and such. BUT, they forget that we are humans, we make mistakes, we are imperfect and sometimes we may say or do things that we regret later on. With the internet, nothing is forgotten, nothing is forever hidden anymore.  Someone cannot cal himself the bastion of self righteousness and have a dark past, because in the next second you are discovered, that crumbles and your hypocrisy will be shown.  The worst part, is that the fans, cannot separate things and will support the person, no matter what bad thing they did, IF their political and ideological views are the same.  But this is wrong. You can't have double standards.  You can't throw stones at Roseanne and hold Gunn your arms and comfort him.  If both did "wrong", they both must suffer the consequences equally.  I say "wrong"  because I believe in liberty. Freedom. Real freedom. You can say and do literally whatever you want. BUT it is "freedom with responsibility"  Do as you please, but beware the consequences of your actions.  Right or wrong could be sometimes just a matter of perspective.  One exception that is very clear is the call for violence. Actual, physical violence. There is no excuse of that. And once again it's not a freedom of speech thing.  They are not being persecuted by the government.  Sure he apologized, said that he was terribly sorry and that he changed. Good for him. His conscious is clear. But if the company decided that it was in their best interest not to have their image linked to his, well, that is it. Deal with it.  The lesson is, don't be quick to judge others, to point flaws, because one day you are in the graces of "the people" but next you could see yourself on the wrong side of door and that door will shut on your face.   On a more "mudane"  side of things, for us the fans of the MCU and GotG, let's see what happens to the franchise now.  Sorry about the long post =]
    • Please leave politics out of this conversation,  whatever the motivation for these tweets being exposed, it simply does not change the level of depravity shown by Mr.  Gunn. We all have our own political  opinions,  but I think we can all agree that when someone makes "jokes"  about molesting children, the political party we affiliate with is in no longer relevant. All Americans should condemn Mr. Gunns behavior no matter what personal political bias we have. Let us focus on this story that brings us together in the condemnation of pedophilia rather than attempt to draw equivalency between this and any random politically charged issue.
