I suppose I could go into the field of psychology (as that's perhaps my favorite relatively left-brained field of study) and work on more artistic and creative projects on the side, or something. As for entrepreneurship, that actually really interests me, and I even have some ideas for starting a kind of business. As for writing, especially recently, I've been trying to write from a deeper level of intuition rather than having my intellect dictate everything (besides, it's not a very good writer anyway). It is definitely better to let the Muse possess you than to force the writing to be just the way the intellect wants it to be.
I have an American sister in law who is a psychologist. One thing to consider, certain professions, and this is one of them, can be very draining if you are not highly highly syntropic and mentally and emotionally wealthy. Do you know what I mean by that? Spending every day with broken souls is not for the faint of heart.
There are people that have this strength, and psychology is a great outlet for their surplus energy. Sadly, most in this field are persons who can barely keep themselves above water in these regards, which is why they were attracted to the field in the first place, and end up replicating this emotional poverty. You have to be very honest with yourself.
Most of us seek to create an identity through our job or profession. We want to be
something. The actual work is another thing. I woke up to this on a bus ride from the east to Boulder Colorado several decades ago...checking into a Buddhist grad program in social work...where I realised, what I needed was a trade, not an identity, so I switched tracks.
Getting a trade, and that could mean anything from physics grad school to space law to an electrician's ticket, means being honest about what you actually have an aptitude for and the type of work that fits your personality.
It means thinking about where you want to live and what is the low hanging fruit of that area, or being prepared to move to a city that has jobs for the work you want to do.
If you don't get this practical aspect clear in your mind, you will spend your entire life playing financial defense, with an increasingly narrow financial decision space. I am sure that your IUOC and AUM will benefit from such a stress test, but do you
want to live that way?
I would prefer to be practical and get control of my simulation, and then self modify with stress tests of my own design - and have an escape button (cash in the bank), but perhaps this is self
defeating in the big picture.
