Here’s something we can assert with full confidence: it takes a lot of chutzpah to pursue a career in engineering. Engineers are expected to confront and conquer significant and meaningful challenges on a daily basis, and only a person with a lot of spunk and nerve would be willing to step forward and don the mantle of responsibility that a respected engineer comes to take for granted.
The rule of law is the glue that holds our society together. Without laws and rules we would lose our cohesiveness, and the structure that protects our freedom and provides us with opportunity would be hopelessly compromised. Legal codes are also expressions of morality and ethics and they embody our highest ideals. For these reasons the practice of law is unquestionably a noble profession, and if the thought of becoming a lawyer seems attractive to you it is clear that you are interested in actually serving and improving society and have no desire to simply go through the motions.
If the field of veterinary medicine intrigues and attracts you, your affection and concern for animals is already a given. Animals have likely played an important part in your life since childhood, and the thought of dedicating your life to servicing their needs and protecting their welfare no doubt strikes you as a fine and noble career choice.
If you’ve gotten this far, you probably already have a sense of whether you have the academic ability to become a physician. But the more important question is, will you be satisfied and successful with a career as a doctor?
This may seem like an impossible question to answer. But you don’t need a crystal ball to decide whether a career as a doctor will make you happy. All you need is to learn a bit more about the key personality traits and characteristics that successful, satisfied doctors have—and then decide if your personality fits the bill!
Most of us were encouraged to be artistic when we were children. From drawings and dioramas to noodle jewelry and collages, art is an integral part of a child’s life and no school day is complete without time for arts and crafts. As we grow older, however, we are counseled to settle into practical careers and to confine our artistic impulses to hobbies, if we pursue them at all. There is definitely some wisdom to this advice, as it is very rare for the average person to support oneself as a full-time artist. Therefore, if you feel that you are an artist at heart, it is likely that you also feel torn between pursing your passion for art and finding a well-paying and stable career.
