People become professional psychologists for different reasons. But sometimes reading smartbooks is not enough, you have to feel vocation in your heart. Sometimes even the lack of special education doesn't stop us from understanding others, being able to listen to and help everybody who needs it, giving a confidence boost to our close ones and friends. The ability to "read" people is quite a valuable skill. Take Sherlock Holmes at least! Take this test and find out whether you fit in this complex profession or not.

Wandering around the city center
Someone sends you a friend request on social media and starts chatting, your reaction?
Great! You can meet cool people on social media!
If it’s a complete stranger, I won’t answer. If we met before, I may chat
If he needs something from me I won’t answer
I prefer to meet people in life
It’s hard to say what he wants because social media is only a mask
Weekend at last! How will you spend it?

At home with my family in cozy surroundings
At home, alone with with myself and my thoughts
As I want at this moment
I'' meet with a friend, we'll sit and talk

Replaying in my head all things happened today
Read a good book and sip tea
Spend a few minutes with close ones
Thank the Universe for this day
Never think about it
Choose a color
How can I make an appointment?
It seems the profession of psychology was created especially for you. Admit it, you have a degree in psychology? You are so good at all these addictions, defense mechanisms and instincts that even Freud could applaud you. Be quick to tell your friends and people you know about your talent. They probably need your help. You really understand all mental troubles and problems, easily find comfortable words and always try to support and reassure everybody you meet. However, sometimes it may become a problem since you take others' problems to heart and experience their emotions for them. Try to take a rest from it sometimes and be an egoist a little bit!
You're a good psychologist
You often help your friends and close ones, support them with advice and listen to all possible problems and joys. However, your wish to help rarely steps over the bounds of the friend or family circle since you aren't so good at feeling and understanding strange people. You're interested in their life, but not enough to experience their emotions and aim to take the hit with the utmost effort. Besides, you confuse complicate psychological terms and notions, which puts your psychology at the earthy, but not professional level. Tell your friends about your result, they'd probably want to have a heart to heart talk with you.
You're a good psychologist if only there was a prelude before the talk consisting of a couple of bottles of wine - in this case, one may hope for your advice or support. Usually, one can hardly get your understanding and sympathy, even they are necessary to your closest friends. It's better to stay quiet at all about special terms and concepts since you don't know your way around. How can one tell what does differ an individual from individuality?! On the plus side, you are rarely nervous and always stay calm. Way to go!
You're not a psychologist at all
Psychologist's job is obviously not for you. Nature created you for exact sciences and not just for heart to heart talks and unclear diagnoses. In your opinion, psychology can be called science with great reserve and there's no medicine here. You - together with your independence - believe that everybody can and should manage his problems on his own, many of which are just made up and not real at all. Following this attitude to life, your nerve cells are safe and your personal state of mind is as stable as it can be. Share this result with your friends - they can only envy you!
It is you who need a psychologist!
What sort of psychologist would you make?! You're a bundle of nerves, heavy thoughts and troubles. You cannot solve others' problems when there are so many of them in your had that you may think about professional help. Try to store up bad feelings less and work on your openness. Talk to your friends, tell them about things, which worry and disturb you. Probably, someone could support you and give some sound advice. Start right now - share your result and find your personal assistant for mental business.
