New Poll: Which of these reactions have you heard when you tell people you study psychology?


[poll id=”46″]


  1. Person begins to tell me very personal things with the belief that I can somehow help them.

  2. “So what’s wrong with you? Can’t understand other people or still figuring out yourself?”

  3. “Oh you should meet . I’d love to hear your thoughts on them.”
    Me: I’m getting a degree in experimental psychology.
    Them: So you’ll be a therapist.
    Me: No. I’m a researcher. I do social psychology research. I don’t know anything about therapy.
    Them: **blank stare** … if you’re not going to be a therapist, what will you be???

  4. “Start taking notes now.”
    “I’m the normal one in the family, help everyone else.”
