@Denispatrick,
Having a strong desire and passion to help people is/are some of the main character traits. Studying the subject and retaining the info is another. Can you do those tasks? Being non-judgmental is another.

Do you have an advisor, parent or school counselor that can help you out?

You know, your Lordyship, irony is wasted on those who can't hear the penny drop.

@Denispatrick,
The term "psychologist" implies several different occupations and is different to the term "psychiatrist".

Working psychologists are often classified as clinical, educational, or industrual depending on which field they work in. Clinical psychologists can be similar to psychiatrists without a medical diploma (and therefore without the authority to prescribe drugs etc). They are both concerned with psychopathology (abnormal behavior). Personality traits of such practitioners are important when dealing with abnormal behavior, and many pracitioners have experienced occasional personal "problems" with respect to their relationships with their clients.

Academic psychologists in higher education institutes teach and do research, and can adopt research specialisms such as psycholinguistics, social psychology, and cognitive psychology. (etc)

@fresco,
Fres I'm impressed by the literacy and eloquence of your response--if those are the best terms-- as Thesaurus.com has gone to hell

Do you think however--tho at risk of attack by so so many hereabout apparently angry at all times about almost everything--we might better respond to Pat were he to reveal a bit more about himself; such as age, sex, ed., nat'l, fam, motives, etc

@saab,
Thankyou.
Unfortunately this thread appears to be a response to a spam, on looking at the profile of Denispatrick.

@fresco,
It is not always so easy to know when a question is a spam or not.
I liked that you gave a serious answer which is good for those who do not realize this might be a spam and might be seriously interested in becoming a psychologist or just interested in the field as such.

@saab,
Personally, I think our defensiveness borders on the paranoia. Somebody asks about the distance from a hotel in Mumbai to the train station and it's immediately tagged as spam. A2k is promoted as an expert knowledge site, after all.

I don't recall if you were on Abuzz, but there were daily questions asking about the departure time of The Duck Tour. Someone once asked "What's happening in October". Someone answered with a full page of world wide events in October. It was funny, but the way the site was presented, the questions were not exactly unreasonable.

@roger,
"Paranoia" is a bit strong. Maybe we are just a bit sick of the blatant and clandestine attempts at using the site for commercial promotion. The frequency seems to be increasing.

A lot of people who have a PC do not know how to use it.
People had maps and could not read them.
People cannot read a train scedule.
People do not know there is a google map and many other things on their PC
So what do they do - find a forum to ask questions and get a lot of dumb to real nasty answers.
