Dr. Rodney E.’s Answer
Do be successful in clinical psychology you need to be inquisitive about the "why of human behavior". You must be observant, detail oriented, enjoy research, interacting with others, and gaining new knowledge as new information becomes available. You should enjoy team work and spending hours reading and writing. My introduction and interest into the field started while working with emotionally challenged adolescents. I then progressed to working as a member of an interdisciplinary clinical team in a rehabilitation hospital alongside psychiatrist, neuropsychologist, behavioral psychologists, and social workers. I was able to hone my skills while working on my graduate degree.
