Recommended Posts

Hello I'm Gloria Flores a student at South Western Illinois Collage, I'm writing a paper for my English class about what is like to be a Psychologist. In my class I was assigned to do a Survey, and out of that survey do a essay. I would appreciate your input in answering my survey questions.

Like Psyhopeful mentioned, people on this forum are graduate school applicants, so we’re still on our way trying to become psychologists. You can check out this website below instead, where there’re some psychology professionals on there (although most are clinical/counseling psychologists.

However, the truth is also that you will get biased responses from any online forum. You might want to consider other survery methods such as emailing/calling psychologists.

 

In addition, I know you didn’t ask this, but I took a look at your survey and actually have some suggestions for your questions if you were to really ask these to psychologists:

   1. “How many years did it take you to become a psychologist?” - There is no way for anyone to become a psychologist in less than 4 years, so you might want to change your answer choices. (Reason see below).

   2. “What degree do you have?” - Psychologists are those who have their doctorate degrees in psychology. Perhaps you could ask “How many different types of degrees do you have?” If you really want to ask this question.

   3. “What type of psychologist are you” - In your answer choices, social workers and licensed mental health counselors are not psychologists but mental health practitioners, and psychiatrists are medical doctors not psychologists. I suggest you editing this question or modifying the answer choices.

   4. “Is psychology what you expected?” - You might want to explain what you mean by this.

   5. Another question for you to consider adding is the type of job settings and positions they work at because it’d be really different.

 

Hope this was helpful. Good luck!

Except school psychologists! They can practice with the specialist degree.

To OP, it sounds like you're broadly interested in mental health professionals, not psychologists (at least, according to your answer choices to #3). You might want to change your scope. Note that "psychologist" can also refer to folks who are, for example, social psychologists or industrial/organization psychologists, who are not licensed to provide psychotherapy.

You're right! I am a School Psychologist, so there are a few on here who are "psychologists" already!

Thanks for the correction! I didn't know about this before!
