Psychology to me is super interesting, especially disorders and stuff in the brain. I would love to be a psychologist, but I'm not that great at realizing that people's emotions need to be handled with care.
I had already taken a few psychology classes and read articles in magazines written by psychologists. I really had no motivation to look into MBTI, or typology in general, until I hit an early midlife crisis, which was sparked by my having to quit nursing school. Something just popped up in my head concerning some test my professor had my class take in general psychology class for fun years ago. So I searched online to see if I could find anything related to personality types and career matches, and I found a lot more than I expected about this silly four letter test I took a long time ago (or so I thought back then).
Nothing official or scholarly, but I would have random questions and search them online, reading a bunch of articles. Then I would have Googling sessions where you read one thing and have more questions, so you read more and more, and you don't realize how much time has past.
So I do have quite a bit of knowledge on general psychology, but by no means am I even close to an expert. It's mainly for my own interest and curiosity. I like to understand.
Well, since I'm mostly interested in personality studies and theories, when I started my hobby research, I was bound to run into it sooner or later Other than that, mostly about depression, anxiety, bipolar, etc.
Oh, oh, oh, but when I was a kid I was aallllwaayyyysss doing those 'which character are you?!' quizzes. I don't know if that counts for anything though, but it definitely spurred me along to my research :kitteh:
