I always wonder why people act the way that they do, and if I become a psychiatrist, I’m able to study peoples’ behaviors to figure out how to help them; I love helping people. Also, becoming a psychiatrist takes a lot of hard work, and I like to be able to do all of that work and have it paid off in the end with a high salary that will be used to provide for my family. </li></ul>Psychiatry
