As I plan to make psychology my partner in life , there are a few things that as a student studying the subject want to share with the world . These instances are unique to people in the field and each one located in the spectrum can fairly resonate with the idea that I want to convey .
#just for fun
Given below are the few “Struggles that only a psychology student can get “
1) Common people !! We do not read minds .

The worst of all is the situation when your junior walks up to you and says ,” you are a psychologist ( practically we are yet not ) tell me what is in my mind ”
How will we know what is going on in his mind , what if he is humming some ed sheeran song or thinking about his long lost love( who knows ). What we can do is practically suggest a behaviour pattern and thought process not their preferable daydreams .
2) We cannot stop analyzing people .

One definite fact is this , we simply cannot stop reading people and labelling them.
” He is an extrovert , he is not .”
“She has high spatial intelligence .”
“You fear this ”
Practically this habit becomes a part of our genetic makeup 😛 . So yeah we are crazy Sherlock fans.
3) Anything new we learn , we are crazy about implementing that .

Be it some IQ test or a personality questionnaire we are always on a go to implement it on ourselves and on others as well .
So are you a nuerotic or emotionally stable .
4 )We cannot stop labelling others with a disorder .

Any person walking past us has one childhood problem and a resulting psychological disorder .
So we don’t leave even our siblings and teachers too 😛
5) We know we have at least all the disorders in their simplest form .

So we don’t just stop the labelling drama by subjecting others with a syndrome coming in radar , we consider ourselves equally worthy to be a part of the scheme . While some of my friends have bipolar mood disorder , I feel I am more schizophrenic ( kidding )
6 ) We try to justify each law on the basis of psychology .
Be it biological aberrations or a simple misunderstanding , we exactly know how things went up . Perhaps the person was too stressed to look at the purview and the other person may be simply more frustated and hence the incident took place .
7) We hate when people confuse a psychologist and a psychiatrist .
So yeah when people as me what I want to pursue I tell psychology and then they zap a random of how a psychiatrist cured their so and so relative and wishes me to become the same . I then have hard time explaining them how I cannot be a psychiatrist and what is the difference .
8 ) We cannot make people realize that we dont have a magic wand .

We are definately not Hermione granger or harry potter who can particularly cure and solve everything in one go . We just have skills to listen to people and some scientific solutions to a particular situation not a magic wand that solves everything in a go.
9) We cannot stop relating to a particular psychologist.
Well this may not be true for all but yes there is one psychologist who appears out of the blue and we feel we are exactly like him or her .
10) We hate when people say ,”even I can read people “
True some people have skills for judgement and forsight but reading people is a scientific analysis and not some common sensical perceptions .
11) We too have abundance of emotions .

We can’t have emotions and we can’t share feelings just because we study psycology .
This happens particularly with moms.
12) We hate it when people turn sexist over the subject ..
“Psychology is only taken by girls ”
I hate this comment like hell
Most of psychologists are males be it Freud or Hung . People just presume that females have too much empathy and can go on with the softer stuff . This is actually a hard field. relating to people .
