    Ahh, well, education doesn't have to be formal.

    Ah, here we are driving forward looking in the rear vision mirror, while the noosphere rushes towards us through the windscreen.

    maybe someone in the forums is anthropologist or maybe someone knows other people who are anthropologists and could give me some insight about the profession
    INTP, I am like 90% sure my anthropology professor is INTP. He told me NOT to go into anthropology unless you're REALLY passionate about it. This is because to get anywhere in anthropology you should plan for grad school and potentially a PhD program. So pretty much he told me that if you have doubts about anthropology don't go into the field. Supposedly, it's a very specific field so unless you are planning to go all the way, it's best to major/minor in something along else with anthropology.

    Also, there are 4 branches of Anthropology.
    1. Physical/biological anthropology (usually w/ a hint of evolutionary thinking). I think Primatology is also a subbranch of this.
    2. Archaeology-
    3. Linguistics- supposedly a dying field
    4. Cultural Anthropology

    My teacher kept telling us that if anyone wants to go into social sciences, they should get a minor in Statistics because it will put you ahead of most of your classmates in grad school since you have to analyze a lot of data in the future.

    All of this is secondhand information from the perspective of someone who has been in the field for over 10 years (after schooling). I asked him because I was debating between going into Psychology or Anthropology.

    I recently discovered evolutionary psychology/anthropology and I fell in love with it. It's the exact framework I've always used to think about or intuit things in my life and those of loved ones; to figure out why we are the way we are. I already have a master'd degree in something else (not too far off anthropology actually), but if I could go back to school full time, and had no children, I'd pursue my PhD in evolutionary anthropology and focus on maternal/child attachment and human relationships as it regards multiple relating. But I have read that if you don't pursue a PhD, there really is no point, because it's all about the research. Or you could become a therapist on top of majoring in anthropology.

    OHHH OOHH! You should totally read the Red Queen by Matt Ridley, The Blank Slate by Steven Pinker, and Mothers and Others by Sarah Hrdy (I bet you will LOVE this book).
