Do I have to be a people person to work as a doctor?

I'm a pretty good "people" person, but I do struggle with understanding and dealing with people's actions and emotions. I know nurses deal with patients for the most amount of time, but I don't want my lack of social skills to affect the patient in a negative way. #doctor #patient-care

You don't have to be a "people" person but it certainly helps. However, it's something you will learn and improve on through school and working with patients, you'll learn how to empathize properly. The fact that you're worried about it means that you'll work on improving yourself. Don't let it stop you from doing what you want!
