You can be anything that you want to be. Go to school, and study hard. Take classes that are based around psychology.
I am not a psychologist as of yet. But I have studied it as a hobby for nearly 13 years now. While I aspire to become an Elementary teacher first. I do plan on continue school once I'm teaching and my main focus will be psychology. I love helping people. Sharing what I know has worked for me. The amount of schooling required for this career can be daunting or intimidating, but it can be done, makes very decent money and there will Always be a need for psychologists. Being "smart" is only part of it. Ever met a psychologist or nurse who very clearly Didn't care? It wouldn't matter if someone with a perfect memory or decent intellect is counseling you- They would also have to show they Care in some form or fashion. If you have the Heart for it and are willing to do the studies it takes to have that degree that allows you to make such a Huge Difference in so many peoples lives- You Can Do It!
I'll ask you a few questions about to see how smart you are but to see if psychology would be a good fit for you
Are u a person who is interested in human behavior learning relationships violence love etc?
Do you want to make a difference in the world? The people that will come to you whether they are children at a school convicts in a prison or elderly folks struggling with their mortality?
At its heart psychology is about people that it would be your job to help them in thousands of ways.
