The Advantages of Being a Psychologist
Being a psychologist is no ordinary desk job, and the emotional rewards of helping other people to address their own problems can be immense.

Also, no two days in this job are ever the same, and you get to meet a wide range of interesting people.

Psychology is a field with a large amount of active research and, as you develop your skills within the field, you might find opportunities open up which allow you to play a part in gaining a better understanding of how the human mind works. You have the potential to end up pushing the boundaries of human knowledge.

Besides the benefits of becoming a practising psychologist, an understanding of psychology itself brings many benefits too.

Psychology Develops Self-Knowledge
Studying psychology helps us to understand more about ourselves, and why we act the way we do. We can identify the things that make us happy, what we're afraid of, and how our feelings can stand in the way of what we want to achieve.

Psychology Provides a Springboard for Self-Improvement
Psychology can help us to identify our own weaknesses and develop strategies to address them. It also enables us to overcome irrational fears that might be holding us back, and helps us to realise our full potential.

Psychology Helps Us to Understand Others
By developing an understanding of how our own minds work, we are also able to apply this knowledge to our understanding of others. The more we know about what motivates other people, and the kind of expectations they might have, the more effectively we can communicate with them.
