Ok, basically I'm at a stage where I'm feeling like I have to flip a coin to pick between studying Biology or Psychology at University.
On the one hand I have a definite interest in Biology, I like the idea of studying the complex system of life and exploring concepts such as evolutionary diversity, ecological influences etc. I also like the idea of having a job that contains both field observation and lab work, however I'm still don't completely know what this will entail exactly? (Any biologists out there?)
On the other side of the coin so to speak is psychology. I've previously studied aspects of psychology at Uni and find it really stimulating. I find I'm not so concerned so much with the abnormal aspects of it, but rather like exploring how it applies in everyday life, and determines a person's personality. I've been told by people that I'm a bit of a natural at counseling type things, as I invariably attempt to read people and offer insights into how they may choose to respond to a problem. However despite this, I do invariably find the feelings aspect of such situations to be quite difficult, and as such don't think I'd be suitable to a counseling type profession. Any thoughts on INTP's as a counsellor?
I've had thoughts that maybe I could attempt to combine the two disciplines in some way but I'm not exactly sure how that would work and whether it would be actually beneficial within a future career?
Any thoughts, perspectives, ideas, or questions would be a great help! What is an INTP better suited to in your mind?
