12 Undeniable Ways You Know You're A Psych Major

12 Undeniable Ways You Know You're A Psych Major

We're SICK and TIRED of hearing if we want to be therapists or counselors. There are WAY more careers than those two. Just saying.

12 Undeniable Ways You Know You're A Psych Major

Here are a few things Psych majors have experienced, have gotten annoyed by, and have heard throughout their education:

1. Diagnosing people and yourself in your mind even though your teachers told you not to.

Guilty of this...

2. How your friends, family members, and pets feel after they come to you for a venting session/advice:

It is a blessing and a curse.

3. When you have a headache, so you try to figure which part of the brain is affected/hurts

I do this more than I should.

4. You feel blessed that you have the knowledge and compassion to help and understand others

Psych majors will make a difference in the future!

5. Taking personality tests during the free time (Thank you, Buzzfeed!)

Q: "What Is Your Secret Personality Type Based On The Colors You See?"

6. You're up for 3 days completing a 15-page research paper.

What is sleep? What are bags? Psych majors may never know *Tootsie Roll Narrator voice*

7. When you still have to know Stats and take Biology courses.

I would much rather compete in the heptathlon than to know stats.

8. Hearing "Psychology is an easy major"

Psychologists have to obviously obtain their bachelor's to then move on to their master's to then get their Ph.D. or Psy.D, which involves a lot of schooling... Oh and hey what a surprise: Medical school. So yes, psychologist, psychiatrists, neurologists, etc are REAL doctors. You don't have to practice medicine just to be a doctor---This is really a brief, but please do some research before you speak.

-Sincerely, all psych majors

9. You have a passion for theories and how cool they are!

There are just so many wonderful theories out there!!!!

10. You're tired of hearing "psychology is a tough field to get into and it is hard to get a job with only a bachelor's."

No shit, Sherlock. Let me be happy. Ok? I'm the one who is getting the degree in. Not you.

11. You get this reaction when you use certain terms.

I am guilty of this when I talk about certain theories (and what it does) and brain parts/functions.

12. You love your major regardless of what people say. *flips hair*

Do you boo! Do you!

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

Madelyn Darbonne

In 2016, a stray cat gave birth to a litter of three grey kittens on my aunt and uncle's property. I had never considered myself to be much of a cat person, but these furballs immediately stole my heart. I got to watch them grow up until they were old enough to leave their mother's side.

11 Reasons Why Getting A Cat Is The Best Thing You Can Do For Your Mental Health

Cats may mess up your puzzles but they'll always love you unconditionally — as long as you have some catnip, that is.

Scout Guarino

Alright, everyone, it's time to stop spreading the rumor that all cats are mean, aloof, and hate everyone. Like dogs, each cat has its own personality and tendencies. Some like a lot of attention, some like less — each person has to find the right cat for them. As for me, my cats Bienfu and Reptar have seen me at my worst, but they've also helped pull me out of it. They're a constant in my life and they give me the strength to get through the day in spite of my depression, and there's even scientific evidence to support it!
