Why, thank you... yeah, I think I reached my plateau with my current work. My boss doesn't want me to leave but I think I need new challenges to motivate me. And also, I think it's time for me to get my master's. With that, I need to work lesser hours than what I am working right now. How's school? are you enjoying yerself,eh?
Am into I/O. I like Jung's theory except that it had probed into spirituality much that I find it too creepy.. sssshhhh Jung's theory has been somehow influenced by eastern spirituality. I find his archetypes very handy.
Btw, I noticed you had become less visible in the forum?
Hi, Kodenate..such a late reply is this! Hmm you were referring to eclectic approach.. It is not as easy as one might think. For it compasses several theories from Freudian to Neo-Freudian to Behaviorism etc. I am not saying eclectic therapists are not that all too effective and methodical..it's just that you need to know and understand all approaches. In essence, it's like being a jack of all trades, master of none.
Oh yeah, what I actually mean was 'if in case you will be a psychotherapist one day'. Sorry for my lack of words. I am always like that.
I think the combination of both is Well, good luck on your studies.. You will learn a lot more about yourself as you go on..
When I took up Psychology, I wanted to focus in Clinical Psychology. I was 12 when I read the novel "The Prince of Tides" and got me hooked with Psychology. And I wanted to learn to know more about myself because since I was small, people always regarded me as different.. almost alien. Eventually, I earned more units in Social Psychology and totally found clinical setting appalling when I visited a mental institution. I graduated at 20, got a job right after in an industrial firm. So to speak, I am more incline to Organizational Psychology now.. I find it satisfying as I get to witness "theories of personality" into action..haha Some colleagues offered me teaching jobs but I declined them all. I wanted to teach someone what I learn, really.. I just find it hard to articulate all the things I have in my head. Are you good in Math? I am not. I barely passed my Trigonometry, Chemistry and Physics subjects. And most of my friends in the profession too.
