What careers and college majors would you consider if these were your interests?

Not sure if it's the same for other high school students but mine has us focus on self-awareness and college prep as part of curriculum outside of working with our guidance counselors. It's part of my english class. Something we have been working on is an essay about our career interests. I am a high school senior with several interests focused mainly on how our mind and body work. I like building relationships to understand and help others because empathy and compassion are my most important values. I enjoy meeting new people because it exposes me to different perspectives which I believe is important. I am very curious and enjoy research to understand people such as why they think a certain way and their motivations leading to my interest in psychology. I am an avid reader and enjoy forming relationships with the characters and storyline which also helps broaden my perspective and learn about people. I’d like to be able to encourage and help others understand themselves and build their self-confidence, particularly those who are misunderstood. I am also very detail and process-oriented meaning I like organizing, setting goals, and planning particularly for self-improvement. I’m good at science and math, which are my other favorite subjects because they allow me to solve problems requiring logic and order. Industries I am interested in are education, health care, and mental health
