These are just the people who will teach you psychology, it is possible that one of you will also become a teacher in a particular section of psychology. These are your professors, associate professors and assistants. How do they become teachers of psychology? One way - the most traditional and reliable. As a student, a future teacher begins to attend one or another group in a particular department and helps to conduct research for a particular teacher, then gets some small topic for independent work that he speaks at a student conference. Some, already studying at the university, report on the results of their research at regional, Russian and even international conferences. Their further path is graduate school at the corresponding department, and after its completion, work as a university teacher.

This path has one drawback. Graduate student scholarship is small. Those who want to achieve economic independence faster go to work for the structures that I wrote about in this chapter in paragraphs 1-10. A thoughtful psychologist gradually accumulates work experience, summarizes his research, develops his own methods, publishes brochures and books, takes on a name. Sooner or later he will be attracted to pedagogical work. Now at many psychological faculties there are teachers who teach their own short course. As a rule, they don’t stop the main work, as it is usually more effective in terms of earnings than the work of a teacher. And full-time teachers often carry out this or that work not only to increase their income, but also for scientific research.

I have described far from all areas of activity where a psychologist can find application. All these areas are very interesting. After all, it is important that work gives pleasure, and even better - pleasure.
But it is necessary that at the same time it also brings good income. The young man is interested not only in work, but also in the opportunity to make good money. So, you can earn, and not bad, in any field of activity. Most importantly, you must be highly qualified. Highly skilled work is always well paid. But in order to become a highly qualified specialist, you need to constantly work on yourself. Read again the biographies of great psychologists. You will see how much and fruitfully they worked. But the main difficulties are difficulties in mastering the profession. Unfortunately, we have a lot of neurotic young people. I believe that you do not belong to them, my young friend, once you have read this book to the end. But still I want to talk again about the signs of a neurotic. In this context, I want to point out one that K. Horney wrote about: "The neurotic wants to be on top, but does not want to climb the mountain." But if you do not climb onto it yourself, then you will quickly be blown away by the wind. In general, one should strive upwards, for "flying high and fast is easier than slow and low."

And a few words about the prestige of the profession of a psychologist and his financial situation. It depends not only on the profession itself, but also on the political system, the state in which you live. In a democratic state that is on the fast track to prosperity, psychology is booming. There is no need for a stagnant and autocratic development of psychology. The cart does not need shock absorbers to soften the shaking, nor computers calculating the course of movement for its forward movement. So, choosing a profession, try to figure out which way Russia will go in the 21st century. Choosing a profession is a serious thing!

I wish you a successful choice of profession, my young friend!
