Human emotions, both simple and complex, govern people in their everyday choices, both personal and professional. Certain people are not ready and immediately lose themselves in bed cards, but I would argue that this is not worth the persecution. The emotions in question have a lot in common with strong internal states. The topics of conformity, non-conformity, and prejudice are easier to grasp than other factors labelled, such as aggression, altruism and attraction. Their role is examined from the perspective of my future career as a psychologist.
Conformity is addressed in psychoanalysis by following the outlined procedure in every detail, regardless of the consequences. Non-conformity manifests itself in individual approach tailored to the needs of every patient. Aggression is necessary for fueling everyday motivations and pursuits a person is dealing with. Attraction does not affect their career as a psychologist due to the strict ethical guidelines limiting any non-formal interactions between therapists and their patients. Altruism, however, provides arguably a more sensible and less suicidal outlook on life and may benefit the majority of a psychologist’s clients (Freitas-Magalhães, 2020). Overall, positive values and perceptions can be formed around any doctor, with very little to do with them.
Finally, it is important to specify that human psychology itself is largely reliant on the study of emotions, subconscious bias and deliberate research into feelings. To develop a positive and welcoming relationship within my profession and the emotions outlined above a better culture of respect should be implemented in the field. Modern psychology becomes increasingly aware of the effects of the chronic pain-induced ominous apathy that has the potential to undermine the treatment the person is undergoing. In general, the level of impact caused by the wide range of human feelings is integral to the very core of the profession.
