Aviation Psychologist

You would be a great fit as an aviation psychologist! These psychologists earn a degree in human factors psychology. They provide counseling to pilots, help devise optimal training programs for airlines, and have even been consulted on airport and airplane design. These psychologists also help screen applicants for flight school, develop strategies for managing jet lag, and aid forensic technicians in crash reconstruction. They often work for commercial airlines, aerospace companies, and government agencies.

Circus Psychologist

You would be an excellent fit to become a circus psychologist! Circus psychologists study sports psychology, and they work with circus performers to help them adjust to the difficulties of their job, such as stage fright or acrophobia (fear of heights). A study published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine found that confidence in performers helps reduce injury, so circus psychologists play a key role in keeping performers healthy and prepared to take on each day’s challenges.
