Say: tell me who your friends are and I'll tell you who you are. This saying can be no less a share of the truth to be adapted: tell me what you're doing, and I'll tell you who you are. In fact, after quite a long time (5 years or more) profession invariably imposes on the identity of the person corresponding to the imprint, including the negative, though, it would seem, in its essence, nothing inappropriate has. Here is a small list of such professions.

Over time, these qualities often reach the point of absurdity, that repels "normal" people, because even in personal relationships, lawyers are starting to look for a catch. Finally, hyperinvariant lawyers can easily turn them into surly nerds.
A famous joke that "accountant" is "diagnosis". Indeed, some people of this profession so get used to his business the way that even tolerate meticulousness and love to the figures of privacy. Accountants routinely have to do everything clearly and correctly, so something extreme and new causes them fear and very troubling. Over time, many people of this profession turn into a terrible snobs and nerds. To avoid this, accountants must periodically break away from the paperwork and to communicate more with people, because otherwise there is a risk of being second-Akakios Bashmachkin (the hero of the story N. In. Gogol's "the Overcoat"), whose world consisted only of letters and commas.
3. The doctor
This refers to doctors who in their practice are faced with a serious illness, suffering and death. The doctor takes a lot of responsibility for patients.

Psychologists recommend that people with this profession is more internal to share problems and experiences with loved ones, and also not to forget about empathy, which is expected to native. Service troubles and worries should be left at work and outside of it to try to avoid additional stress.
As you know, military people are strict discipline. Alas, they often "build" even their loved ones, developing in the home of the dictator and a tyrant. Psychologists say that the military will eventually become a type of professional deformation of the personality, which is almost not possible to fix. Officer is a way of life.
People who choose the profession of a journalist, as a rule, are very modest and prefer to remain in the shadows ("He's in the main event, and I only interview"). In addition, they are curious.

People might bump into self-centeredness and outright faux pas, it can form a pathological setting that he did not live his life.
People in this profession are often arrogant. As a rule, they have high self-esteem, and regardless of the degree of professionalism. It is easy to be meaningful against the background of the child – individual, is still far from revealing, and sometimes the ego of the teacher results in authoritarianism – if not in relation to school pupils, in relation to household. Teachers especially need the ability to put yourself in the other person, as well as the cultivation of humility and tolerance.
It is no secret that many people who have decided to become a psychologist, first of all want to understand ourselves and not the problems of future patients. In fact, due to the constant contemplation of other people's deviations from its own "cockroaches" such people can never get rid of. Moreover, personal problems are often compounded. And thanks to the knowledge of human nature psychologists can easily become manipulators, shamelessly using others for their own selfish purposes.
Psychologists should clearly separate their professional and personal lives, and learn not to take people only as material for another study.
