Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) Designer: HCI designers combine principles from psychology and computer science to design intuitive and user-friendly computer interfaces and applications.
User Experience (UX) Researcher: UX researchers use psychological principles and research methods to evaluate and improve the user experience of software and other digital products.
Cognitive Science Researcher: Cognitive science is an interdisciplinary field that combines psychology, computer science, linguistics, philosophy, and neuroscience to study the nature of human cognition and intelligence.
Data Analyst: Data analysts use statistical methods and software tools to collect, organize, and analyze large datasets, often in the context of psychological research or marketing research.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) Researcher: AI researchers combine computer science with cognitive psychology and neuroscience to develop intelligent algorithms and systems that can learn and adapt like humans.

Psychometricians are like engineers that use scientific methods to study and validate psychological tests including those related to personality & apptitude. They design them, assess how they work, and manage the testing systems.
A specialization within this field is called Computational Psychometrics. It involves creating AI models from psychological data. If you are someone that enjoys machine learning this may be a good career for you to look into.
I also have the same interest of yours and that's how I learnt about User Experience Design where you think about users problems and identify digital solutions for the same.
Initially, I got experience in accessibility testing which fascinated me a lot. Then I started exploring more about accessibility and related careers which introduced me to UX / HCI (Human Computer Interaction). This is a very interesting field and you could consider this as one of your options to explore.
You could enroll in courses to gain better understanding and identify your interests.. After completing 1-2 short courses, if you are sure about your interest then you could join some longer courses or bootcamps. I have heard about a newly launched bootcamp for ux which is completely free. Check out "uxuiopen.com" for that.
Hopefully that helps:) Feel free to ask if more queries regarding UX. I'll be more than happy to help 🙂
Thanks and Regards,
