1: Psychiatrist $177,520 Hard: You have to get an actual MD, but you automatically join the largest drug cartel on the planet. And being a “drug lord” is legal! And you get to be “snarky” to your clients and to “lesser beings” (psychologists) because you’re smarter than they are. That’s what shrinks do. And don’t pass up a long tradition of f**king up children by using them as lab rats!

The blizzard of charts and diagrams that “make up” psychology are perfectly useless: Just memorize a few bullet points, regurgitate on a test (Oh heck! It’s open book!) and promptly forget. Flatter your professor (if you have one), otherwise, make the T.A. think that you think he or she is a genius, copy short essays from the Internet (no one will care; how do you think they got a degree?) and dress “academic” (kind of weedy and tweedy, but polyester is fine). Grow a scruffy goatee (optional for females). Don’t worry! “How to act sincere, use stock sociopathic behavior to get what you want, and how to inflate your credentials IS the content of your psychology degree!
