Well, I suppose there exist some introverted sort of psychology jobs dealing in research too. But fundamentally it's about people. Architecture is ultimately about structures. It's not so much about people. So are you a people person or a thing person?
I am very intrested in psychology and really good talent for it, BUT hre is the thing: i ferl like i will go crazy listening to peoples problem and honestly don't wanna engage all the time in conversations with other people. Also there are manycareer fields in psychology and I wouldn't know what to do afterwords I got my bachelor and master. You stil need do study further for becoming a neuropsychologist (what i would like to do) but i don't wanna study until i am 30 i wanna start a family and habe a house and job and all at that age. I just think architecture is a really nice job. I like the thought of it sitting in a office and drawing houses and buildings. I just don't know if it would suit me...
Thank you you help very much by the way :)
I am for sure introverted. I like the human brain and all that psychologic stuff you learn when studying psychology, but I don't wana engage with peiple all the time. I know that as an architect you need to work in teams and all i am fine with that but kistening to peoples problems i will go crazy also i am very sensitive i think psychologist need to be more resilient and not that sensitive like me i dont know
Cheers! To my understanding, architecture is blurring more with STEM these days than arts. There is an artistic component to it but the demand is usually for very practical buildings these days over the most beautiful ones and lots of architects I know these days specialize a lot more in structural engineering and do a lot more work in CAD than drafting board. It's kind of blurring into a nerdy territory, you know. If you can dig that, I think there's a greater practical chance for success in architecture than psychology given the absurd number of people majoring in psychology. I think if you want a good chance of securing a decent job with a psych major, you gotta be really passionate about it.
Oh god i am really not good at all in mint subjects and much more better in psychology...But what did you recommend me know?
Now* i eould like to be an architect but without that mint stuff oh god
I dunno what to recommend but most people who seem happy at my age didn't necessarily pick the job of their passions but one they can excel at and make a decent living at. It's a rare minority of people who work for like 10+ years in one field and still love their job. I think for most people, most jobs start to become a drag at some point. But some people can still at least avoid the struggle of paying the rent, can still enjoy vacations, can still take care of their family. It's always a balancing act as I see it between the practical need to pay the rent and pursuing our wildest dreams. So I like building my biggest dreams outside the job like ones related to family and friends and good times, and just hope I end up in a place where the job pays well and doesn't make me want to jump off a cliff too often.
Everyone says you should study what you burn for... but if it's philosophy excuse me what will i do with a degree in philosophy? So i do agree with you and think the same way as you...
Philosophy was just an example or archeology for another example
I think it'd be wise to scout the job market in your area, especially given the difficulties facing the economy right now. Balance that out with your passions. It's a tough choice though but I think a mistake some people make is failing to look into the actual nature of a job and demand for it before choosing their majors. Personally, over the jobs, I've had (most related to engineering my case but in disparate fields), the ones I enjoyed most were the ones where I could get along with my team the best. That's what makes me happy is I go to work, get paid reasonably well, and can get along with the people at my workplace.
Thank you! Just wanted to ask if it's possible for me to find a man once? I am seriously worried i won't find anyone
Socialize, network, make friends. Don't make finding a man your top priority or else you'll probably end up getting tangled up in the worst types. But don't twiddle your thumb though at home and hope prince charming will arrive at your doorstep. You have to go out there. But you're young so have some fun meeting new people and making friends. Expand your world. Don't just hang out with the same few people all the time. I think that's the best chance of finding a mate, especially a meaningful one.
Thank you! You really give out the best advices!
Cheers! Well, I think I made a lot of mistakes when I was younger. When I felt lonely I prioritized getting a girlfriend, and I think it's true for both sexes that this seems to somehow lead to meeting the worst types. It's like you try to fill a sense of emptiness in your life with an SO and that strong desire -- maybe even desperation -- can end you up with someone who makes your life seem even more empty than it was before.So I think the way to combat loneliness is not by meeting strangers with the primary intent of dating them, but instead of befriending them. And you can stop feeling lonely with those friends you make, hanging out with them, having good times. Maybe we still want some sexual or romantic gratification but you just meet even more new people with the primary goal of being friends, and I think that's the most fulfilling way.It's how I met my wife. She was a friend of a friend I met at a picnic hanging out with friends. It's how my little sister met her husband at a home party who was a friend of her friend. And both my little sister and I had lots of difficulties with relationships in the past (not getting them but finding good ones; I spent too much time in bars and she spent too much time looking for dates online). We kind of halfway gave up and just looked to make friends and have a blast, and that's when we found our ultimate partners.I think that's the most successful strategy. It's like you sort of have to prioritize things other than getting a date in order to maximize your chances of getting the best ones. It's hard to explain. But it seems to work in the long run, and in the short run, you can be having so much fun meeting new people and having fun with them.
Thanks this feally helps
Yes that's why i am doubting paychology.. i dont wanna make a PhD.. do i get payed better with architecture?
Because I enjoy designing, drawing and it allows to be creative. I am not really interested in psychology
Why? I don't really understand why you would choose something that no one studied?
Because they all have this thing they can do nothing with and have a market over flow of people with it.It's also kind of classed as a shit and stupid class to most I know and is not viable to help find a job.
Okay intresting! I thought well I've heard many times that it is very useful and you can use it in almost every career field...
And what do you think of architecture? Is is a good career?
I heard basically otherwise. You. may as well have pulled the qualification from a cereal box that's how little it was valued for around here. Maybe it's different where you live and such tho!
Thats true! Propably it's different! But where do you get easier an job? Hightest job satisfaction? Better career?

It opens up a number of career paths, it’s better paid on average to psychology.You can be a part time counsellor.I spent around 8 years as a volunteer at a counselling centre, I’m was an Aircraft Avionics engineer at the time.I know a number of people that have Phycology as a secondary but not many that have it as a primary and another job as a secondary.
simply put... Psychology should not be a career path in which you should have doubts or show hesitation, it is very intricate and also a challenging choice, if you want to get into then you should go for it 100% or don't go with it.besides that, Architecture has a wide range of options, so you will have time and also a lot more room to discover on what you would really like to be doing in the future. Also it can give you the flexibility to dedicate to other things that you like while you still practice Architecture.
Really? Why shouldn't you hesitate about psychology?
Psychology is a very demanding and difficult career, it's very draining and very involved with people, and not always the best side of people. A lot of individuals are very interested and intrigued by psychology as a subject, however, as a career it is very different, you have to see it as your true vocation and call in life, in order to be dedicated to it as it deserves, and then... for it to pay back as well, as a living.
